Faith & Edgar Say I Do | Ballantyne Hotel | Charlotte NC

I met Edgar just a few short months before his wedding to Faith and fell in love with the couple immediately. Faith had the same vision for her wedding as I did. She said yes to a First Look with Edgar and her dad. Plus she wanted to do a reception reveal. & the wedding was going to be held at the gorgeous Ballantyne Hotel. Unfortunately, it rained the day of the wedding so we weren't able to do the family formals or First Look photos outside but the couple remained in high spirits and rocked the day anyways! 

Edgar, alongside his best man, got ready downstairs. He looked so dapper.

While Faith kept me busy with her amazing details upstairs.

She transformed into a princess before my eyes once the gown went on. 

Faith loved her jewelry from Edgar. & Edgar got an awesome Apple watch from Faith. 

I absolutely love First Looks because they allow a moment of real, raw emotion between just the two people before the hectic ceremony begins.

Plus, we would not have been able to get this amazing moment otherwise!

Faith & Edgar exchanged heartfelt, handwritten vows. They also had a rope tying section of the ceremony. But the best part was that the officiant was Faith's brother in law, married to her sister (the maid of honor). 

These pictures were during the private reveal of the ceremony space and then the reception hall. 

I knew Faith had great taste, because she chose us to photograph her wedding, but man look at that cake! ;)

I absolutely loved the first dance photos, you guys rocked it!

Edgar's mom really let loose during the mother and son dance.

Toasts were given by Faith's dad, the Maid of Honor and Best Man. All 3 kept everyone laughing and on the verge of tears. 

It was almost a crime to cut such a beautiful wedding cake.

I LOVE Faith's expressions during the bouquet toss, she was having a blast.

& Edgar totally rocked the garter toss too.

We had a lot of family formals at this wedding so we took some time during the reception to sneak away for a few intimate moments with the newlyweds. It was way worth it!

Now this crew could dance, especially the officiant. I hope everyone had a blast and I can't wait to see what the next year has in store for you Faith & Edgar Gomez!!
