A Pakistani wedding is full of ancient traditions and customs that revolve around Islam. Typically a traditional Pakistani wedding celebration lasts four days.
On the fourth day, the couple hosts their first dinner as husband and wife called Walima. The groom’s family invites all of the guests for a feast and the parents give their blessing. This is the most festive event of the wedding ceremony where they are announced to the public formally as a married couple.
The bride wears a heavily decorated dress with gold jewellery provided by the groom’s family, and doesn’t Fiza look marvelous?! I love her henna, bangles, Pazeb, and rings. Mobin wore a Western suit and looks ultra dapper himself. They looked fabulous together on their Pakistani wedding stage as all their guests adorned them with love and celebration.
Mobin and Fiza held their event at the Anaheim Hilton and made use of the courtyard and fabulous evening light for some wedding portraits before the party began. And what a party it was!
