Lawrence Wibisono, dapper in black tuxedo, and Ira Josephine, shining in white dress with embroideries and crystals, kissed amid camera flashes, cheers, and balloons. After a beautifully solemn and sacred Holy Matrimony Mass held at St. Therese church in Menteng, friends and families released red and blue balloons high up to the sky representing their hopes and prayers. A jubilant celebration then flowed on to a lavish reception at the Hotel Indonesia Kempinski's grand ballroom, following tea pai (a Chinese tea ceremony) for the families of Mr Bernard Gunawan Hadipoespito and Mrs Maria Grace Satyawati—parents of Lawrence—and Mr Tjiang Tjoe Tjiang and Mrs Liem Sioe Lie—parents of Ira.
