After David was on his way to Union Station, Leyla got dressed with the help of her mom and her future mother-in-law. It was sooo sweet seeing how close-knit these families are!

Their wedding ceremony took place in Union Station’s main outdoor courtyard. Their florals added a subtle tropical vibe, which was a fun non-traditional touch.

Not only were Leyla and David drawn to the iconic architecture of the venue, but it also holds a sentimental place in their story. In high school, before they could drive, they’d take public transportation downtown and hang out at the station!
