West Seattle wedding announcement: Congrats, Samir and Breanna!

May 22, 2011 at 12:30 pm | In Wedding announcements, West Seattle news | 12 Comments

We’ve published obituaries since requests started coming in – but this is the first time we recall being asked about a WEDDING announcement; we’d be happy to publish those too! Congratulations to Samir Baillie and Breanna Duvall, celebrating their first full day as husband and wife. He says you might know him as the “espresso-scooter guy” – which explains why the couple also is congratulated on an A-board we just saw outside Red Cup Espresso in The Junction. They got married yesterday at Hamilton Viewpoint Park in Admiral, and had their reception at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center; Samir says they are both West Seattleites, so: “Our idea was to have all of the money spent on the wedding to be put back into the West Seattle community.” (Their officiant was local too, Samir says – Michael Supino, owner of Red Star Pizza.) Wishing you many happy decades together!

  1. Yay! How crazy to open WSB and be greeted with this announcement. Congratulations again to S and B; the wedding was beautiful, fun, and unique, just like they are.
    And if you see this, Josh just said, “That’s why the officiant looked familiar!” ;-)

    On another note – and I don’t mean to go all maudlin on you or anything – but every time I start to consider that I might need to move to another Seattle neighborhood, WSBlog reminds me of the great community we have here, and it’s thanks in large part to you, Tracy & Patrick! Thanks for all you do!

  8. Well, I didn’t do anything – just granted a request. Which is how the site has evolved over the years. Like obituaries, wedding announcements may come in only now and then – we’re not going to actively beg for them, but if word gets around, awesome – TR

  11. I don’t know them, but that is a beautiful photograph. My best to them both. And this is probably as good a time as any to say how much I just love this blog. It makes me feel connected to this place I already love so much. Thank you.
