Janella and Dan’s story began in middle school. Of course, Dan’s ridiculously enormous set of braces and Janella’s full-blown tangled fro made it so they wouldn’t come to notice each other until Junior year of high school. Their friendship slowly developed whilst bonding over Taco Bell crunchwraps and photography, until finally Dan asked Janella out. What she did not expect is that he would pick her up on his skateboard. As time progressed, their interest in international cuisine and travel was the bonding agent of their love, as is documented daily on Janella’s incessant Instagram stories. One million pieces of sushi later, they’re finally ready to tie the knot. In their almost 8 years together they’ve found new passions as they lifted each other up… and this is just the beginning.
