    The first time Adam Rico saw his future wife, Alicia, she was wearing a metallic-gold leotard and stilettos. They were both living and working in New York—he in photo-shoot production, she in floral design.

    A year and a half later, Adam and Alicia were married. They moved to Dallas to be closer to Alicia’s family and founded their floral design company, Bows and Arrows, in 2009.

    Adam, who is originally from Georgia, describes his wife’s style as “  ’60s French pop,” while she calls him a “lumbersexual.” The couple’s two daughters, Dotty, 4, and Olympia, 16 months and nicknamed “Pia,” mirror their parents.
