2014 Year-End Celebration & A Good Old Fashioned Vacation!

We just closed out our 2014 wedding season last week with Maureen & Brandon’s truly amazing New Year’s Eve wedding (which was on the blog yesterday and you must go see it if you haven’t already!!), and are so humbled by what a wonderful year of weddings we had!! 30 truly amazing couples trusted us with their wedding days and we are so incredibly honored!!

When I was putting together the compilation of images for this post – I was honestly blown away when recalling each of these weddings and each of these truly wonderful couples. We are so incredibly honored to get to document people’s love stories and this beautiful chapter in their lives… I still can’t believe this is our ‘job’!!

To all our fabulous 2014 couples – THANK YOU from the very bottom of our hearts!! We honestly cannot thank you enough for allowing us to follow our dreams and trusting us with your most precious memories! We do not ever take this job lightly and are so humbled to be able to capture memories for you to pass on for generations to come. Thank you. Thank you… THANK YOU. All of you have left imprints on our hearts with your touching love stories and for that we are forever grateful.




And now, James and I are hitting the road, friends! (Or more appropriately, the air!) We are taking a good old fashioned vacation for once!! One that does not involve any work (other than shooting some film for fun – because – I can’t help myself!!), and one that will most definitely include lots of tropical drinks, beach time, and relaxation. We are excited to reconnect and decompress after one crazy year of very hard work, and also hope to digest and discuss all that this year meant to us – as we learn from our mistakes, hit the road running with our successes, and look forward to another beautiful year ahead!!

We will see you guys sometime next week with lots more fabulous posts coming your way, and in the meantime – make sure to follow us over on Instagram (@christytylerphoto & @l2jchicity) for all the Vieques vacation updates & pictures! 🙂 Here’s to kicking off another sure-to-be beautiful year!! XOXO!
