A Black Nazarene devotee has asked his girlfriend for six years to marry him amid the Black Nazarene procession or ‘Traslacion’ in front of Quiapo Church.
Christian Genesa, 23, surprised his beloved Kristine Orpiano, 21, after the mass and proceeded with the proposal which drew the attention of other devotees.
Netizen Remle Joy Estacio, a friend of the newly-engaged couple, posted on her Facebook the videos of the proposal.
As seen in the video, the friends of Genesa slowly flashed each letters that read “Will you marry,” with “ME?” held by Christian at the end.
Orpiano, in awe, answered with a sweet “yes” afterwards.
According to a report by GMA News, the two were high school sweethearts and met each other in Canada. The couple is set to be wed on Friday.
This was the first time they joined ‘Traslacion’ together.
