Maddie Moran and Sam Farquhar met in high school and were together for 10 years before Sam got down on one knee. The couple enjoyed their wedding at Spring Vale Farm with friends, family and a garden theme that created a beautifully relaxed vibe.
The proposal: Sam had the ring for nearly six months before he got the courage to ask. He chose a random Thursday afternoon when they were on a walk with their son, Billy and dog, Narlie. The ring was sitting nicely in Billy's lap and was a big surprise for Maddie.
The rings: Both rings are very special to Maddie and Sam, as they were designed and made through Intergold Australia who are close family friends.
