WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- A busy rush hour street corner became a wedding chapel Wednesday on U St. NW.
Taniah Smith and Luron Flynn were married at the spot where they met exactly four years ago, surprising passersby on a hot Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. in front of the Frank D. Reeves Municipal Center.
"I think its beautiful what they are doing!" said one enthusiastic stranger who was among a handful to stop and watch near a busy bus stop.
"I just invited myself," giggled another rush hour pedestrian.
The couple met on the night of April 10th, 2009 when Luron, then a Georgetown student, was captivated by a woman he saw leaving a nearby nightspot.
"It was her smile," he laughed. "I knew I had to meet her."
Taniah, a bank HR executive, said she was taken aback by the young man, who walked, then ran, then loaded in a car with friends to make her acquaintance.
