Clear Cut Couples: Charlie and Stefanie

Charlie and Stefanie were high school sweethearts! They officially got together in their high school music group, the Main Street Singers, while on their international tour in 2009.

Their first date was going to ice cream in Palo Alto in high school at Michael's Gelato. They listened to live music, had gelato, and Stefanie made fun of Charlie’s parallel parking job. Since then, they have been together for about 10 years!

They have had so many incredible memories over the years -- live music, traveling, fine food, and spending time with loved ones are their favorite things to do. Some recent highlights include their trips to Colombia and Hawaii, where they got to experience a beautiful culture for the first time in Medellin and swim with sea-turtles in Maui...doesn't get much better.

Charlie proposed overlooking Lake Tahoe on Picnic Rock in North Shore. They love Tahoe, and during the pandemic decided to rent a place for the month up there in August to get out of the city for some more space. Charlie said, “One day after work, we went on a quick 60 minute hike, and at the top of the vista point I dropped down on the knee and popped the question. She was SO surprised! She was speechless and ‘blacked out’ during my speech - but as soon as I opened the ring she let out a very loud ‘WOOOOOW!’ in excitement. She definitely thought the proposal might be pushed out because of COVID so I definitely caught her by surprise which was perfect.”

Congrats you two! We are SO happy for you and cannot wait to hear about the wedding!
