WEST HOLLYWOOD, California -- Alibaba, one of the world’s largest e-commerce companies, is flying 10 couples from its native China to be wed in West Hollywood this summer.
The couples were among 400 who submitted videos online in a “We Do” contest sponsored before Valentine’s Day by Alibaba subsidiary Taobao and by Danlan.org, a gay news site in China that also is the creator of Blued, China’s leading gay dating app.
The couples will receive a week-long wedding and honeymoon package that includes a hotel stay and free flights. And they will be greeted by West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico. “I want to personally congratulate you on your love, courage and commitment for one another,” D’Amico said in a letter to the contestants. “We look forward to seeing you at your wedding in the city of West Hollywood.” The group wedding ceremony will be held at a not-yet-announced location in West Hollywood.
