Aurora Theater Shooting Survivors Tie the Knot a Year Later

The "cubby hole" was a small entryway between the theater and the exit. The group fell to the floor as the shooting began again. They made it out of the theater and ran as far and fast as they could, with adrenaline fueling the wounded Han.

He was treated in the hospital and has undergone physical therapy over the past year. Now, he's running again. Davis recovered from her minor injuries.

Nine months after the shooting, Han said he realized it was time to take the couple's relationship to the next level.

"We were still dating and I was planning on proposing even before [the shooting] but I never had the chance to," he said. "When the theater shooting happened, that's when I was like, I really need to do this because you don't know what's going to happen after tomorrow."

He proposed on April 9 while the couple was visiting South Padre Island in Texas. She said yes and he asked how she felt about getting married on the one-year anniversary of the shooting. Davis told him she had to think about it.

"I was kind of uncomfortable about the idea because I didn't think it was OK to take a bad day and turn it into a good day, so I had to really think about it," she said.

She thought about it and came to a conclusion about a half hour later.

"I think it would be a good date to have our wedding," she recalled saying. "That way we can make good memories and start a new chapter of our lives rather than allowing this memory from a year ago to stick with us every single year."
