Merging of culture and business when it comes to weddings

Really interesting article in today's Washington Post that is subtitled, Industry Woos Asian Weddings Even as U.S. Reshapes Them. I found the information on the immigrant community in Washington DC and how the merging aspects of US Wedding traditions and other cultures have happened to the point:
