I'm up early with a pesky cough that has been keeping me awake, so, I thought I would go ahead and write my post now for all of you!

As I mentioned prior, I have been gathering lots of lovely inspiration from the many wonderful wedding blogs and websites out there, and this week I thought I would share some of the things I have found with each of you for Wedding Wednesday!

Below are some fun, inspirational wedding blogs as well that you may not have heard of, which I have found some lovely things on from time to time. Hopefully you enjoy some of these ideas and sites too and they help you to find some lovely inspiration of your own!

In other news, today, despite being sick, I am headed up to Santa Barbara and Montecito to look at some other possible wedding venues put together by the oh so lovely, beautiful and energetic Jessica from Bijoux Events!

Theses appointments were prearranged for today, and hopefully, I make it through the day okay! :)

Jessica was the wedding coordinator at my younger sister's wedding and we all instantly fell in love with her and her talent! So, when I started hitting a bit of a dead end on my hunt, we gave her a call and she jumped in with such enthusiasm to help us out!

Hopefully I find a gem of a venue today, and perhaps next Wednesday I will tell you how it went and bring some inspiration and pictures I like for engagement sessions!

We have our engagement picture session set for this summer, when my Unexpected Love and Fiancé gets back from Peru, in Laguna Beach where we got engaged. He will be in LA when he gets back to the U.S. visiting me before he goes back Austin to start his final year of grad school.

Feel free to share some engagement pictures of yours or others that you enjoy...I would love to see them! So fun! Oh and I promise to have another Look of the Day post soon too...just needed to feel better first! :)

Update: I was just too sick to make it to my appointments, which I tried so hard to be okay for after all the time that went into making them, but I might be contagious, so, we are delaying my above Santa Barbara wedding adventure at the moment.
