Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo's daughter Kahiyang Ayu married her longtime boyfriend Bobby Nasution in a much-publicized wedding ceremony in Solo — Jokowi's hometown — in Central Java on Wednesday (08/11).

Indonesian media went into overdrive in their coverage of the "first family wedding," comparing it to the weddings of K-drama stars or Javanese royals.

The ceremony was attended by the who's who of Indonesian politics, from Vice President Jusuf Kalla to ex-presidents Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and Megawati Soekarnoputri.
