Advice with chinese/western wedding cuisine please

Hi everyone, my fiance and I are having troubles in finding someplace that will accommodate both types of food for us. She is chinese and I am a whitey with my parents in pennsylvania (making it tougher to plan around their travel preferences than it should be).

We were looking at the Hilton in San Gabriel and had our hearts *almost*.. set on the place when the hilton representative we were talking to seemed to change their prices.. to the tune of 200% of what she originally told us we could have a ceremony on the roof and then a reception in one of the ballrooms for. We need to clarify why the pricing is soo different, but it's pushed us to try and look for other places to have our shindig.

Then we were also looking at the Universal City Hilton, which seems ok, and the pricing also seems reasonable, but then read another post on this board talking about how it's a nice place, but it can also be very hectic with parking and people getting there, since it's so close to universal city/walk.

Anyways, caroline and I were hoping that you learned and kind people could give us some advice and share some of your experiences in planning a wedding somewhere that caters to both chinese and western tastes.

Thanks for all your time and consideration,

Ryan and Caroline
