Summer Wedding Memories with Papyrus & Meijer #Giveaway

I love summer and fall here in Michigan. We do our best to spend it outside, making as many fun memories as we can each year. Camping, swimming, family barbeques. There is also nothing better than a wedding. Committing to a life together in-front of all of your family and friends while celebrating the beautiful seasons is an amazing experience.

We were married during the winter. But, we’ve attended several summer weddings, and post-summer weddings that really stand out in my memory. One family member was married at the lake, under beautiful tress that were full of fall colors.

Now that we are post-summer wedding season the Meijer home department has partnered with Papyrus to offer an amazing in-store deal and a fabulous giveaway for one Five Dollar Shake reader.
