We often get caught in the Tel Aviv bubble and focus a lot of Hatunot on the wedding vendors and industry in Tel Aviv and in Jerusalem. Lately a few readers have been asking us to write more about other options outside of Tel Aviv so today’s post is dedicated to that lovely city on a hill, Haifa. While most wedding vendors (photographers, caterers, etc) will come from all parts of Israel to any wedding location, the following is a list of vendors headquartered in the Haifa/Carmel region.
Pine Club– Nestled away in the trees of the Carmel sites the Pine Club, a rustic spot for events. The Pine Club has onsite catering and gives your guests the feeling of being in the middle of a forest.
HaHorsha– Located in Kibbutz Yagor (about 9km southeast of Haifa), HaHorsha is an event space within an intimate garden among the trees of the Carmel. HaHorsha has onsite catering, perfect for any meat lovers.
Yam Carmel – For an incredible view of the sea, mountains, and everything in between make sure to check out Yam Carmel
Cahol- Inside the Dan Hotel in Haifa, Cahol lives up to it’s Hebrew name, “blue” as it overlooks the pristine waters of Hof HaCarmel. A large space, Cahol offers packages that include everything from the venue, food, lighting, decor and beyond.
