Guests at Liza Minnelli's fourth wedding say she danced at the altar as celebrities helped her and producer David Gest celebrate their nuptials.

Best man Michael Jackson carried the train of Minnelli's white, silk Bob Mackie dress until maid of honor Marisa Berenson remembered her duties, guests told reporters outside the church.

Gossip columnist Liz Smith called it, "the kissiest wedding I've ever seen."

"They kissed the whole time," Smith said of Minnelli and the groom.

Other attendees say Minnelli danced at the altar after tying the knot.

The crowd outside Marble Collegiate Church screamed as the newlyweds slipped out a side door. A limousine waited to take them to a reception.

"This is the closest we'll ever get to this kind of stuff," said Alyce Hoffman of Akron, Ohio.

The guest list featured such stars as Anthony Hopkins and Michael Douglas, Elton John and TV news personalities Diane Sawyer and Barbara Walters.

Others arriving in limos, Rolls-Royces and even yellow cabs were celebrities such as David Hasselhoff, Phyllis Diller and Robert Goulet.

"This was one of the most thrilling weddings I've ever been to," actor Mickey Rooney told reporters and photographers as fans watched from across the street. Curious New Yorkers observed from rooftops and apartment windows.
