Julia & Masaru (San Luis Obispo, CA)"We first met through work and with both of us being insanely passionate about our craft, our creative spirits quickly became connected. We not only had the chance to gain an admiration and respect for each other in our relationship but in our careers as well. You sometimes hear that things are meant to be, or that fate has it's hand in making things happen and we often joke about how different things could have been if I hadn't been so persistent when I originally was considering taking "the job" that brought us together. You see when I was in negotiations for the position, I had a missed connection where my emails were not received by the president of the company, who thought that I had abandoned his offer. We both thought the other party had a change of heart, while little did we know that it was just a weird email glitch. Eventually we figured it out and if we hadn't, well we would have never met."
