I am sorry to hear about your fiance’s misfortune. As for your question, if they are not on a sim card and instead reside on the phone’s hard drive you will most likely need to hire an electronic data recovery firm.
Data recovery firms have been around since the 90′s when they began helping businesses and consumers recover information off failed computer hard drives. With many consumer’s moving to smart phones, consumers are storing more information on their phones than ever before. The consequence to this is, when a phone corrupts (or in this case falls in a pool), there is more at risk.
I ran a quick search online and these are some of the firms I found offering data recovery service for cell phones (Reminder, this is not a formal endorsement of any service. I have not personally tried any of these.):
Now, since your fiance’s phone fell in a pool the data may not be recoverable at all, so when looking for a firm to help with this try to find one that only charges if they are successful at recovering the information. Good luck.
