Pompi and Esther Chungu's wedding proposal story
On 27th November 2020, which fell on a Friday and also Pompi’s birthday, Pompi melted our hearts when he pulled off one of the most romantic proposals ever.
On the day that will probably never be forgotten by the couple, Pompi organized the most romantic set-up using dozens of red and pink roses on a wooden cabinet to spell out the words “Marry Me.” The room was filled with candles and covered in rose petals and we honestly don’t see a scenario where Esther would have said no to this, we almost said yes and we not even in the room.
Taking to Instagram the next day to celebrate his betrothal, Pompi shared a couple of photos of the proposal. In one of the photos, he was on one knee and in the next he was lovingly embracing his new fiancee.
While Pompi was dressed in a sharp black suit, Esther Chungu was in a beautiful red floor-length gown.
Pompi also shared a couple of more photos where both he and Esther Chungu were all smiles and we got to see Esther’s giant engagement rock. These photos were accompanied by the caption: “I believe that I have found a good thing.”
