How did Guy and Lori meet?
In 1992, Guy and Lori first met when they encountered each other at Stouffer's in Long Beach, California.
At the time, the future millionaire managed the restaurant when he crossed paths with Lori while she made a stop on her way to a friend's in San Diego.
Lori recalled the evolution of her and Guy's marriage to PEOPLE and shared: "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?'
"He's a fantastic person. At the end of the day, I look at him and I still genuinely like him."
She added: "Starting from the time we wake up in the morning, he pretty much has me laughing.
"Our perfect nights are really barbecuing in the backyard and the kids swimming in the pool, we just hunker down at home."
Guy's recollection is similar to Lori's as he remembers they met through one of his future wife's friends who used to work with him at Stouffer's.
He explained to Delish: "Her 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.
"She said, 'You can't make us leave,' and I was like, 'You don't have to.' I knew as soon as I saw her."
