The double doors at the Hotel Mulia Senayan Jakarta's Grand Ballroom opened wide as Jessica Kenastri Kawilarang—the cheerful bride in embroideries, flounce and glitter—enters on the arm of the handsome Togi Marolop Pradana Panggaribuan. The families of the bride—Mr A. Edwin and Mrs Trini Boediharumie Kawilarang—and families of the groom—Mr Luhut M. P. and Mrs Rosa Agustina Pangaribuan—stood beaming happiness under five small chandeliers and among fresh flowers on the large, white portico-shaped stage.

The event reached its peak when the two lovebirds danced their first dance and then threw the bridal bouquet to waiting singles' hands. The night was still young as the line for the photo booth got longer and longer, and the merriment led by the sparkling, silvery bride and the sporty, bow-tied groom continued at the after-party.
