Little Vegas Wedding’s Best of 2013, Oscars Edition

Many wedding bloggers were doing annual roundups just as 2014 began, but I thought it would be more fun to play off the Academy Awards and give honorary Oscar “nominations” for some favorite photos from posts featured on the site in 2013. The photos are a mix of personal choices and those that were popular on social media*. Mostly, it’s just a chance to highlight some amazing photography and work by various vendors from 2013. It was an amazing year on the blog, and I wish I could have included so many more!

So, presenting the nominees in the following categories: Best Visual Effects, Best Drama, Best Props, Best Set Design, Best Wardrobe Design, Best Kiss, Best Picture, Best Supporting Cast, Best Hair and Makeup and Best Cinematography! If you click the photo, it will bring you through to the full post if you would like to see more.

And to the team at Wish Upon a Wedding Las Vegas, who are there to help wedding dreams come true for couples coping with terminal illness or disability.
