It was an all-white affair at Shangri-La's Boracay Resort and Spa for the couple, a ceremony celebrated with a small group of family and friends.

On the eve of the wedding, the couple threw a Coachella-themed party by the beach.

However, missing from the pool of guests was Maxene's sister Saab who is her matron-of-honor.

"I'm so sad that I can't be with her physically. I recently learned that I'm not allowed to travel anymore until after the twins' birth," Saab wrote on an Instagram post Thursday.

The younger sibling added that Maxene understood the reason for her absence and emphasized she should not worry about it because the safety of the twins is more important.

When Saab married musician Jim Bacarro in January 2015, Maxene was also her maid-of-honor. She announced in September 2017 that she is pregnant with twins.

Maxene and Saab are two of the late rapper Francis Magalona's children with wife Pia Arroyo.
