Documenting life’s moments on social media has become the norm, especially for people with a large online presence, like Wendy Joseph and Dan Hennessey. The couple became internet sensations after posting one particular photo on Instagram, which hit among the couple’s fans and followers and went viral overnight.
What the couple thought was just another regular picture spread uncontrollably all over the internet leaving them concerned as to the reason why. They started to read the comments people had left on their profiles to understand the reasons why they had become such a sensation. Not even they had realized about the astounding detail before posting it, and when they saw it they were just as astonished as the rest.
Dan Hennessey, 32, and Wendy Joseph, 31, were not always big Instagram stars. In fact, back when they met, social media was barely in use, and Facebook had only been around for two years. It was through this platform that their successful love story would begin, to later become an online sensation.
It was 2006 when the two met. Dan was an 18-year-old sophomore who loved to party and make new friends, while Wendy, only 17 years old at the time, had just graduated high school and was pursuing a career in public healthcare.
