Tara Lilly Photography – Vancouver Wedding Photographer

Elise + Aaron tied the knot at Toronto’s 5th Grill and Terrace on a day filled with love, laughter, and the music they live their lives by!

I am excited to be a Vancouver Wedding Photographer, and we are looking forward to exploring all the great venues the city has to offer. One of our favourite urban weddings this year was held at the 5th Grill and Terrace in Toronto.

We first met Elise and Aaron at Sarah & Eamonn‘s wedding this past winter at the Cambridge Mill. Aaron was the videographer for their day and was amazing to work with. Being an artist himself, we were really excited when Aaron reached out to us about having us document their day.

Music plays a large part of Elise and Aaron’s lives. One of their first dates they recorded a music video for one of Aaron’s songs. When Elise brought music into her heartfelt speech to Aaron, it was a perfect metaphor for the way they have lived their lives. It was also one of the most beautiful bride speeches I have ever heard. Check it out:

I just want to say something about your music for a second.

When you make music, that is you. That is where your power lies. When I first heard your music it hit me in the heart and stayed there. I don’t know if it was the same melody my heart was speaking and when it heard yours it knew, or if it was that beat that made my body move, or the words that speak simultaneously of love and pain and raised something from my subconsciousness. But it is the alpha and the omega, and if i could just be with you and listen to your soul speak through your music, that is heaven to me, and a gift to everyone.

I love you. And I’m so excited for our lives together.” -Elise

Elise and Aaron, I am glad you guys found the music of your lives!

-Tara & Steve
