JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Wedding reception confusion #general

My parents Ketubbah says that they were married at Hopkinson Manor on
Hopkinson Ave in Brooklyn, NY (12 Feb 1939). The invitation to the
reception says the same. Until recently, that was all I had. I
recently got a copy of the actual invitation. It is a standard
invitation but, to my surprise, it invites everyone to their marriage at
Little Oriental Restaurant on Pitkin Ave in Brooklyn. That sounds more
to me like where a reception would be held than the wedding. Somehow I
can't imagine my parents having been married in a Chinese restaurant!
I'm confused. Anyone know anything about these places or why the
wedding invitation might say Little Oriental, while the Ketubbah *and*
reception invitation say Hopkinson Manor?
