Among the steady stream of people placing flowers outside Cafe Racer on Thursday was Janna Silver, who said she got married in the cafe on New Year’s Eve 2 1/2 years ago — and that Drew Keriakedes officiated. Keriakedes is one of the shooting victims who died at the cafe yesterday.

“My husband and I were in the cafe talking about getting married, asking people if they knew someone who could do it, and Drew said he could,” she said, adding that Keriakedes was certified as a minister.

“It was great,” she said. “Whoever happened to be at the cafe at the time were the guests at the wedding — maybe about 20 or 30 people.”

Silver said the cafe was one of the first hangouts  she heard about when she moved to Seattle  three years ago.  “Drew and Joe (Albanese), without a doubt, were the life of the place,” she said. “Always talking, always smiling. … This is very sad.”

Joe Albanese was also shot to death.
