    Despite an alleged altercation between a bodyguard and the groom, what was important to well wishers was that the sweethearts are now married. After six years of togetherness, Sarah is now Sarah G. G. or officially Mrs. Sarah Geronimo-Guidicelli.

    According to reports, the couple exchanged “I dos” on Thursday evening, February 20. Sarah reportedly rushed to the venue of the hush-hush wedding, the Shangri-La at the Fort, after taping “The Voice Teens” in Quezon City.

    The nuptials and the rumored wedding crasher – allegedly Sarah’s mother, Divine Geronimo, who was said to have arrived at the venue unannounced – have spurned a thousand memes on the internet. Still, netizens were overjoyed, with celebrities like Karen Davila, Robin Padilla, Christian Bautista, and Apl de Ap, who is Sarah’s fellow coach in “The Voice Teens,” taking to social media to send their congratulations.

    Christian Bautista (@xtianbautista): “Congratulations to @JustSarahG and @mateoguidicelli on your wedding 🙂 Kat and i are happy for the both of you! And we are here for you” (@apldeap): “Congrats to Sarah and Matteo! #BigLove”

    Meanwhile, Lea Salonga, who is a coach in “The Voice Teens” like Apl and Sarah, has been teasing Sarah since the start of the season. Yesterday, she wrote on social media: “Not gonna lie, I’ve never been this excited to head to a taping of ANYTHING! I know it’s not until next week, but still!!! #DiAkoMakakatulog”

    According to the grapevine, the Guidicellis are set to have a church wedding in Italy, where Matteo’s dad is from, next month. Will Sarah’s parents be present? Well, as they say in showbiz, abangan ang susunod na kabanata.
