Tony and Alisa were married on October 5, 1996 at a beautiful winery in the Temecula Valley in Southern California. They met in the summer of 1994 while Alisa was at the University of Colorado at Boulder for a summer internship and Tony was on of four fraternity guys hired to cook and clean. Alisa often joke that she knew Tony could cook before they ever started dating. Tony was the morning cook and also helped prepared lunch and dinner.
Even though Tony and Alisa had a great time that first summer they thought it was only a summer fling. At the end of the summer Alisa left CU for her senior year at DePauw University. They started a long distance relationship and were able to see each other about every 6 weeks or so. Either Tony drove to Indiana or Alisa would fly to Boulder.
They really got to know each other through lots and lots of phone calls. The unfortunate downside to all of these phone calls was that they financed their relationship on credit cards. Tony and Alisa were dating the early years of the internet and cell phones weren’t readily available like they are today.
After Alisa graduated from DePauw University she moved out to Colorado to be closer to Tony. During this time in our country we were going through a recession. Alisa had a hard time finding a job and wasn’t to pleased that she had made the move to Colorado. A few months later Tony and Alisa ended up in Southern California with Tony’s family. Tony began working with his father in the family construction business and Alisa became an assistant manager for a national rental car agency. Things were looking up!
