MANILA -- It's safe to say that flying in a popular band like Boyce Avenue just for your wedding, and a designer dress worth thousands of dollars is far beyond the reach of most brides. 

Not for this Pinay though. 

Singer and beauty queen Shirley Vy married businessman Kevin Wong in a jaw-droppingly lavish affair, reminiscent of the grand wedding in the recent blockbuster hit, "Crazy Rich Asians."

Held Monday at the National Shrine of Saint Jude in Manila, which was decked with wall-to-wall fresh flowers arranged by Gideon Hermosa, the couple's wedding exuded the same luxurious, indoor garden vibe as that of Sonoya Mizuno's Araminta Lee character.

Vy, who named Miss Chinatown in a pageant back in 2016, walked down the aisle in a gorgeous custom-made Elie Saab gown, estimated to have cost around $7,500 to $27,000.

The fancy feel of the occasion carried over to their reception -- the Grand Ballroom of Solaire Resort and Casino served as the venue -- where Vy and Wong set a new bar for extravagance.

There was an 11-foot cake, a massive LED wall screen made up of 580 panels, and entertainment provided by Boyce Avenue, said to have taken a short break from their US tour just for the wedding.
