Alana & Derek Hufford: An Outdoor Sunflower Wedding with a Rustic Touch

Saturday, September 29, 2018

Lafayette, Indiana

I have known Alana since middle school and it was such a blessing to be apart of her and Derek’s big day! I could tell they worked so hard on every little detail of this wedding, I hope it was everything they had dreamed of and more.

This was my second time out to The Blessing Barn and what a “blessing” it was! I love this venue because along with the couples decor, there is also so much beautiful detail that the venue provides too. Literally anywhere you turn in this barn has some cute little thing hanging on the wall or a rustic touch to it, they have really done well with this venue!

After getting into her dress, Alana had a special gift for each of her parents. Watching her give those to them and seeing the happy tears flow had me tearing up as well! I just love those sentimental moments, they are probably one of the best things I could possibly use my camera to capture. Don’t even get me started on the groom’s reaction when he first saw his bride walking down the aisle to him, talk about a tear jerker! Okay, that’s enough, I’ll let you envision the rest of Derek & Alana’s wedding day story with some of my favorite shots from their day. :)
