Rick and Alice first met in an Irish pub, and got talking properly later on that night in a nightclub. He thought she was Hawaiian, as she’d mentioned a trip to Hawaii she was taking, and she spilt a drink all over herself after he dared her to down it.
After seven years together, Rick cooked Alice’s favourite meal and lit candles (using the grill in the absence of a lighter). He asked Alice what her main memory of 2012 would be. As she’d had heart surgery earlier in the year, she told him that would be her overpowering memory. He told her to close her eyes, and when she opened them again there was an engagement ring on the table!
Now when she thinks of 2012, she remembers that amazing moment instead.
The couple spent just under two years planning their special day, which had a pretty unique superhero theme.
