How did Lori and Guy first meet? Their love story from the beginning
Lori came across her future life partner at a restaurant, in Long Beach, Califonia in 1992. It was managed by Guy. However, his first impression wasn’t good when they first met.
He told Delish that Lori’s friend, “had been let go from the restaurant, and they weren’t supposed to be there. I was talking to her friend and saying ‘Hey, listen, wait a few weeks before you come in,’ and standing behind her is this blue-eyed, blonde girl giving me this mean mug.”
Lori immediately went for defending her friend, insisting that they wouldn’t be left. He said,
“She said, ‘You can’t make us leave,’ and I was like, ‘You don’t have to.'”
Guy finally gave them permission to enter the restaurant and gradually joined them in talk. Lori made her cross-country move from Rhode Island to San Diego to visit her friend. She was glaring at him while they were talking but Guy told the tabloid there was something different between the two that his heart knew from the day they first met. He said,
“I knew as soon as I saw her. I just knew.”
Recalling their get-go, Lori said that Guy looked totally different. She said “When I first met him, he had no goatee. He had dark hair. He wore a suit to work every day. Now I look at him and I’m like, ‘Where’s that man I married with the whole clean look?’”
After a few courtships, they started their lovey-dovey.
What Did Guy Do to Win Over Lori?
The then fresh-face in the food industry told in the same interview with Delish that their same love for food initially helped them to connect well to each other. He said that Lori was first impressed by his own hand-made food although the meal Guy forgot now. He said,
“That was a long time ago. I don’t remember what I made, but I do remember it was quite an epic time. The first time I cooked for her, she was just like, ‘You made all this?’ We both love food, so being able to cook, that was one of the things that impressed her.”
How long have Lori and Guy been married? The truth of their longtime marriage
The couple exchanged their wedding vows in 1995, in a low-key ceremony. They were in a relationship for a couple of years before they walked down the aisle. The duo is in a happy marital relationship ever since.
Guy Fieri’s wife told People the key to their long-lasting matrimonial relationship is that “at the end of the day, I look at him and I still genuinely like him. Starting from the time we wake up in the morning, he pretty much has me laughing.”
It’s been over 24-year that they are married and their relationship is still in a smooth way. The TV presenter also opened up the secret to their successful marriage in The Today Show,
“My wife and I have gone from being married at a young age to being where we are now — to get here, you have to be willing to adapt and understand.” He further added, saying the relationship is “all compromise and understanding.”
