Clear Cut Couples: Tommy and Samantha
Tommy and Samantha met through a mutual friend (Kate) at a July 4th beach party in Venice in 2017. Samantha grew up in Maui with Kate and Tommy worked at a Santa Monica startup with her. Tommy was immediately taken aback by Samantha's outgoing nature and Baywatch style bathing suit.
After a few failed attempts to get together - Tommy with an extended stay in Thailand and Samantha with an extended stay in Australia, they finally got together over a shared interest. Tommy and Samantha met at a Sports Bar, the Blue Palms Brewhouse in Hollywood, to watch their favorite football team, the NYG's, lose to the Eagles. Samantha arrived early as she always does, opposite of Tommy who arrives precisely when he means to. The night ended with a snow cone from Davey Waynes! Tommy and Samantha made it official at the San Francisco Pride Parade of 2018. Love was in the air!
They have shared so many incredible memories over the years! They love to travel via automobile and have done several road trips, most notably their Route 66 Road Trip in 2018 and their cross country pandemic style road trip in early 2021. They're no stranger to flying and Holbox Mexico, Maui, and their front-row 50-yard line NYG seats also come to mind! They'd be amiss to not mention their angel-baby-boy-best-friend Senna Coconino Noble - their white brindle Husky Pitbull mix.
Tommy proposed amongst the lush gardens of San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California. Before he got down on one knee, he evoked one of their favorite reality TV stars, waxed poetic, and said, "Honey, I'm having a Darcey moment!” Samantha evoked Samuel L Jackson, expressing her shock, and accepted.
She was so surprised and the ring is everything she ever could have wanted! They’re still deciding on the details of their wedding! Congrats you two! We are SO happy for you!
