August 15 would have been Alex Lancaster's wedding day — if her fiancee hadn't faked his own death.
Lancaster, 23, of the United Kingdom, reportedly met Tucker Blandford, also 23, in August 2012, when she was attending college in Connecticut. The two fell quickly in love.
"He was such a gentleman. He showered me with jewelry. We would go out for a posh dinner on the tenth of every month to celebrate the day we got together," Lancaster said, according to the Mirror. "I'd never been in love like that before. I met his family and they treated me like a daughter. His mum and I became so close."
Lancaster feared their good thing would come to an end when she returned home, so when Blandford proposed marriage, she was eager to say yes.
