Streetsblog Wedding Announcement: Juan and Sirinya Matute
(When Sirinya first approached me about doing her and Juan’s wedding announcement on Streetsblog, I thought it a little odd at first, but is there anywhere else that would be more appropriate a place for this transit super-couple to announce their nuptials to the world? I know I speak for all our contributors, Board Members and readers when I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the happy couple. For our first Juan and Sirinya pics from 2008, click here. – DN)
