So, the title is self-explanatory here, our fall wedding at Bergamo and the Lost Creek Memory Barn is one of my favorite memories of all time.

There’s pretty much only one time in your life that everyone you know and love is in the same place. Combine that with craft beer, amazing food, and the perfect sunny day with fall leaves, and you’ve got a recipe for the best barn party on this side of the Mississippi.

Of course, the actual ceremony was amazing (I cried) and I got to marry my best friend! What more could I ask for in a day?

Getting married young just means you get to do everything you originally planned, but with someone you love by your side, and I’m so happy I found my perfect partner.

Check out some of my favorite pictures from our fall wedding at Bergamo and the Lost Creek Memory barn below 🙂

Additionally, if you’re planning your own wedding in Dayton, there are many of the vendors I used:

Church: Bergamo Chapel in Beavercreek

Venue: Lost Creek Memory Barn in Troy

Hair: Sweetly Pinned Hair & Makeup

Flowers: Sherwood Florist

Caterer: Creatif Catering

Photos: Mac Photography

We also created our registry completely on Amazon and it was a hit. I definitely recommend doing yours there as well because we were able to get a lot of our nontraditional gifts and favorite travel stuff like the Osprey backpacks and a Pendelton blanket instead of the typical china sets.

Our wedding at the Lost Creek Memory Barn Dayton was just as magical as I hoped it would be, and these pictures capture it perfectly!

It was a relaxed day surrounded by the ones I love and I couldn’t have asked for more. It was even 65 degrees and sunny in November which was definitely lucky.

This was a cherished day, and I feel lucky to share it with you.

I’ve been traveling full-time for three years, these are the resources that make it happen:

➤ I exclusively use Airbnb for savings and security on long-term stays in furnished apartments.

➤ I use for short-term stays in hostels and hotels on weekend trips.

Skyscanner and the Scott's Cheap Flights newsletter help me find and book cheap flights and mistake fares.

Upwork allowed me to take the leap to travel full-time because they make it so easy to find freelance clients in any field. 

➤ The Superstar Blogging Travel Writing Course launched my travel writing career and helped me become a contributor at sites like Cincinnati Refined and International Living, and even get published in the Boston Globe.

➤ Finally, I love hosting my travel blog on SiteGround because they have helpful and responsive customer service and I love MediaVine and CJ for helping me make a living doing what I love!
