Their fans celebrated the nuptials of Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo on social media platforms by posting throwback photos of the couple from the series. As a result, #SongSongCoupleWedding took Twitter by storm with an outpouring of love and best wishes.

Who did they wear?

The bride and groom looked gorgeous as they rocked matching Dior outfits for their special day. Song Hye Kyo looked elegant in a simple and conservative gown while Song Joong Ki looked dapper in a Dior Homme peak lapel tux.

Star-studded affair

The event may have been an intimate affair but there was no shortage of stars present at the occasion. Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo invited their close friends from the industry, in addition to their family and non-showbiz friends, but since they’re superstars, they also had superstar friends.

Among the stars spotted at the occasion were Song Joong Ki’s little brother at Blossom Entertainment, Park Bo Gum. His bestie, Lee Kwang Soo was also present, rocking a checkered green suit.

Among the celebrities spotted at the event were the couple’s "Descendants of the Sun" co-star Kim Ji Won, Yoo Ah In, Kim Minseok, Super Junior's Donghae, Shinee's Choi Min Ho and So Ji Sub.

It would come as good news to shippers of "Strong Woman Do Bong Soon’s" puppy couple Park Hyung Sik and Park Bo Young that they both attended the wedding. The two stars attended the event separately but it was enough for fans hoping that the two would end up in a real-life romance like the Song Song couple.

Live streaming in China

A media outfit in China is being criticized for illegally covering the wedding and streaming it live, according to a report by All Kpop. It was reported that reporters booked a room at the Shilla Hotel with a clear view of the event and used drones to capture footage from the private wedding.

Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo posted on their personal social media accounts official photos from the event soon after the wedding. It remains unclear whether or not legal action will be taken as a result.

Post-wedding plans

It has been reported that the Song Song couple will take a trip to Europe for their honeymoon. It was not revealed where the newlyweds will be spending their time, however.

It can be recalled that back in May, Song Joong Ki purchased property in the Itaewon district and sparked fans’ hopes that he was planning to start a family, even before he confirmed his relationship with Song Hye Kyo. It is believed that the couple may be starting their married life in the multi-million dollar property.
