Have you ever heard that George Straight song, Check Yes Or No? When I first met Ayla and Ray and heard their story, that song popped into my head.

Their backyard wedding at Ayla’s parents’ house in Ferndale was absolutely stunning! From the blush and grey color scheme, to the beautiful arbor and stone walkway for their ceremony space, to the perfectly warm but slightly cloudy day… it was perfect.
