Jill and Jason’s Waverley Country Club wedding was filled with so much action and emotion. When they first reached out to us from Australia via video chat and we immediately heard the most charming Australian accents filled with laughs and a couple who immediately enamored us. Jill and Jason first met when Jill decided to study abroad in Vienna, Austria where Jason also coincidentally decided to study the same program. Their love has spanned 4 years, 3 continents, and thousands of miles. In January of 2012 Jason decided to visit Jill in Portland and their worlds changed forever. Within 5 months Jill moved to Sydney where they started their life together. With 135 guests from Australia, the east coast, London, and Portland Jill and Jason experienced a fun-packed destination wedding filled with lots of emotion. From fun games during their rehearsal dinner comparing Australian accents to American accents (WOW!), their lovely ceremony, touring Portland in a 1947 “Silver Wraith” Rolls Royce Limousine (best car in town), to speeches, dancing and singing that made everyone cry and laugh all night long. The best Waverley Country Club wedding we’ve had the privilege photographing to date.
