Clear Cut Couples: Katie and Jamison

Katie and Jamison met while working at the Ritz-Carlton. They worked on the same team so they had to keep a low profile. They have both since left the hospitality industry to work in tech, but for about a year and a half they had a bit of a secret office romance!

They’re both huge foodies and cocktail snobs so for their first date, they started off with a lunch date at a Mexican restaurant in SF's Mission District. They both LOVE Mexican food and margaritas are one of their favorite cocktails so after they ate they ended up at a rooftop bar and watched the sun set. It was a cute first date!

They will have been together for 7 years next January and have shared so many incredible memories over the years. They love traveling together and have been to some pretty amazing places: Mexico, Costa Rica, Greece, Japan. Their first trip together was in Cabo San Lucas and every year since then they plan on summer trips abroad. They are big outdoorsy people too, they often make camping trips out at Joshua Tree, Yosemite, and Lake Tahoe.

They both love music and take every chance they get to see live music. Whether that is concerts, festivals (they love Burning Man), or just spinning DJ sets at home for their friends. Music is a huge part of both of their lives.

A major highlight of their relationship has been adopting their rescue chihuahua mix, Pika. She is a Tijuana street dog and ever since they saw her at the rescue shelter they fell in love. She brings them so much joy and love and they can't imagine life without her.

When they were on vacation in Tulum, Mexico... Jamison had booked a private cenote tour with a couple's massage in the jungle. They had a small picnic brunch and as they toasted with some bubbles, he played one of Katie's favorite songs, got down on one knee and asked if she would marry him. It was a huge surprise! She absolutely loves the ring and started crying.

They haven't discussed much in terms of wedding plans yet, but whatever they end up doing the food, music, and drinks will be the most important component outside the location and venue. Congrats you two! We are SO happy for you!
