I bet when you think about a destination wedding Israel doesn’t come to mind? But think again! I was recently talking to a friend who is a well known wedding photographer in Israel and he told me Israel is becoming a popular spot for American and European couples to get married.
Your probably wondering why Israel? Well I think the American and European media has given us a false image of what life is really like there. In reality it is a beautiful country which is modern yet has thousands of years of history. Israel attracts both Jewish and non Jewish visitors alike. Those wanting to incorporate a spiritual aspect into their wedding will find much to suit their needs. It would be a trip of a lifetime for you and your guests!
Israel is blessed with sunny and warm weather, (much like Southern California) with little or no chance of rain from May to October. Even in winter, it is usually possible to have the wedding ceremony outside.
Wouldn’t a wedding by the ocean in Tel Aviv be so romantic, with the waves gently breaking on the beach as you exchange your vows.
Israel offers a diverse variety of stunning locations ranging from archaeological sites, to desert settings, biblical parks, luxury hotels and amazing banqueting gardens overlooking the Mediterranean.
Imagine….bringing your guests in a bus through the beautiful, silent desert, with the location of the wedding a well kept secret. Suddenly……there are lights, music – a magical location appearing out of the desert. The guests alight and are greeted by exotic cocktails, delicious appetizers, and the fun begins…
Israeli food today is on par with the best found anywhere in the world. With international influences in menus, an abundance of fresh vegetables and fruit, incredible cheeses, world class wines and five star catering Israel is quickly becoming well known for its Fine Cuisine.
Competitive prices and Vendors
Weddings in Israel can be much less expensive than in the United States and throughout most of Europe. There is a well established infrastructure, and a thriving tourist industry which can cater to the widest range of palettes and budgets.
