It’s Magazine Monday! And today we have a closer look at UVB’s Movie Makeover of Crazy Rich Asians! Since it came out just two years ago, clearly this is a movie that doesn’t need updating. But we wanted to see what this Singapore show-stopper could look like right here in Utah. And friends? Get ready to gush.
P.S. We recently shared our Runaway Bride movie makeover. And we’ll be sharing our third and final wedding movie makeover — Steel Magnolias — on an upcoming Magazine Monday. #blushing
ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE 2018
ORIGINALLY STARRING Constance Wu + Henry Golding
CRAZY SYNOPSIS OF FILM Professor Rachel Chu follows her boyfriend Nick Young to Singapore, where she finds out that not only is Nick’s family rich, they’re CRAZY rich. And then, you know, they attend the $40-million dollar wedding of Nick’s cousin where the bride gracefully walks down an aisle flooded with water. Casual.
Rachel Chu: “So you’re family is, like, rich?”
Nick Young: ” We’re comfortable.”
Rachel Chu: “That’s exactly what a super rich person would say.”

WATER WORKS Tropical florals, bright colors, and an AISLE SHIMMERING WITH WATER. (Is it real water? Our magazine pages are sealed. You’ll have to ask Elizabeth at Eccentricity how she did it!) The greenhouse at La Caille was the perfect backdrop for our fanciful affair. The invites by Eccentricity were so very extra. And on top of it all, the film-inspired ceremony was illuminated with show-stopping chandeliers from Moonlight Utah.
Alix Young: “They spent $40 million on the wedding.”
Felicity Young: “Really? That’s too much. We’re methodists. $20 million is our limit.”
EAT, DRINK + BE CRAZY We’re on the edge of our seats. The opulence! The drama! The larger-than-life centerpieces! The colors! The candles! The purple velvet table cloth! There is no end to the detail, skill and imagination that Eccentricity and Intertwined Floral brought to this crazy scene as Utah Valley Bride re-created “Crazy Rich Asians.” More is more.
