Safia & Bob's Pakistani American Beach Wedding {Clearwater, Florida}

2014 Mar 8 - by Preeti
With a continued snomaggeden (snowstorm) battering the east coast, I figured we all need a little beach and sunshine.

And this white sand Florida beach wedding will definitely lift our spirits. From the bright colored flower centerpieces (they were made by the bride!) to the bride's orange and green menhdi salwar, you'll be smiling all day today.

Safia and Bob had an interethnic wedding of Pakistani and American traditions. Their wedding events were entirely outdoors, celebrating the beautiful white sands of the Florida west coast.

You can really capture the fun with NStyle Photographix's video. Don't you want to dance on the beach too?!


We caught Safia for a quick interview about their wedding.

What was the inspiration behind the wedding?

We wanted something modern that combined both our cultures (I am Pakistani, and Bob is American). All our events were outdoors, including the nikah and the weather was perfect.

Plus it was all about location, location, location: Florida's white sand, beautiful sunsets, and amazing October weather!

What was the hardest part about planning the wedding?

The hardest part for us was planning from Texas for a wedding in Florida.

What was the favorite part of the wedding?

Dancing all night under the stars with the ocean breeze. It was magical!

What three pieces of advices do you have for brides-to-be?

  • Stay organized
  • Use Pinterest, and

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Mash'allah to Safia & Bob, an adorable couple!
