Rachelle Ann Go Just Got Married! Here Are All The Details You Need To Know About Her Beautiful Boracay Wedding
Everyone, say hello to Mrs. Rachelle Spies!
The award-winning musical theater actress married her beau, Martin Spies, in a romantic beachside wedding in Shangri-La's Boracay Resort & Spa on Wednesday, April 18.
Here's everything you need to know about the summery ceremony:
The island paradise, despite the environmental troubles plaguing it at present, was an absolute non-negotiable for the couple as this is where they got engaged in September last year.
They tied the knot on the grounds of the luxurious five-star retreat and continued their stay at Discovery Shores.
Fans were absolutely shocked (in a good way) when the Broadway and West End star had photos of her wedding cropping up online! It was originally announced that the wedding would be on April 19, perhaps done on purpose to maintain the wedding's privacy.
The wedding team
Rachelle's wedding's success can be credited to the popular wedding organizer Teena Barretto, while the equally in-demand Gideon Hermosa, Teddy Manuel and Michael Ruiz took care of the event styling, florals and, of course, the bouquet.
Gauging from photos we saw on our feeds, the wedding's theme appeared to be dominated by pastels. There were cute paper decor forming a canopy during the wedding, dainty flowers and feathers, and candles too. From the decor to the attire of guests and the entourage, lots of pretty pinks, poised purples, and breezy blues were in sight.
Before Boracay closes its doors, God has blessed us with this beautiful intimate wedding. No frills or drama, just love all around. ?Rachel may be a world-class talent and a theater darling but today, it’s just Shin, the love of her life, their closest loved ones and this timeless unforgettable island.

Not needing to look far and wide for the perfect dress, Rachelle counted on brother and fashion designer, Oz Go, to create something special just for her. He came up with two contrasting, yet fitting, numbers: her feminine wedding gown featured a low back with button and simple lace details on the neckline and sleeves, while her reception off-shoulder blush-hued dress was more party-ready with its sequins and feathers, and a sexy slit that showed off the bride's toned legs.
Martin, on the other hand, looked every inch a happy groom in his light gray suit, classic white shirt, and complementing blue tie.
The glam team
Makeup artist Anthea Bueno and Aries Manal are the duo behind Rachelle's simple yet elegant look! Foregoing heavy makeup, Rachelle chose to emphasize her lips while also giving her guests a stylish view with her back turned to them; her hair was done in a classic chignon and kept in place by a cute gold hair piece.

Being the famous singing sensation that she is, Rachelle was in the company of famous friends like "Queen of R&B” Kyla, Sarah Geronimo, Erik Santos, Mark Bautista, and Regine Velasquez. Her Cornerstone family was also in attendance to support her on this special day.
And, having equally talented friends, Rachelle was provided great entertainment throughout the night!
In an exclusive interview with Metro.Style, she mentioned, "Sa mga friends ko, isa lang kakanta: si Ms. Reg. I really want her to do a song while I'm dancing with my dad. It's going to be really special." In the end, Asia's Songbird chose to serenade the bride with her rendition of The Carpenters' You.
There was also Moira Dela Torre as well as Kyla who sang the tune of the couple's first dance as husband and wife.
Overall, this couple saw their love story going full circle in the company of lifelong friends and family. More than the beaming Boracay sunset, the love between Rachelle and Martin was what lit this series of love-filled days!
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
