Montana & Justin’s real Israeli wedding, planned by Danny Marx, blogged on Smashing The Glass
Today I am SO excited to feature one of the most impressive wedding planners and producers that I’ve come across — Danny Marx. He’s a born and bred Jerusalemite who specialises in creating destination weddings in Israel AND Israeli-style weddings all over the world.
I’ve got a serious soft spot for Israeli weddings — I just love a chuppah under the stars and an all-night party vibe. Not to mention the boundless amounts of food, colour and absolute JOY. But we can’t all get to Israel for our big day. So if you want the Israeli spirit for your wedding, without the travel, Danny Marx really can bring the party to you.
Planning a wedding in Israel — or an Israeli-style wedding anywhere in the world
Whether in Israel or elsewhere, Danny aims to create an unforgettable day, rammed to the rafters with an authentic feel-good vibe. But with a background in film, he also knows what LOOKS GOOD. He’s got an eye for stagecraft and delivers glamour.
A visionary? Yes. But reasonably priced? Totally.
His past clients have called him honest, patient, organized, professional, tactful, charismatic and positive. I myself had the pleasure of meeting Danny a few months ago in London and he was utterly delightful. He was keen to let STG readers know that he organises weddings for ALL BUDGETS. Bear in mind that this is a man who’s created epic events in some of the most exciting venues — including the iconic Tower of David.
How it works
After initial contact, Danny and his partner Alon, will meet you, whether it is in Israel or abroad. This is usually after several phone calls and emails.
The most important thing is your vision – how you’d like your wedding to look and feel. From that point Danny Marx and his team plot a preliminary theme and get going to find the perfect selection of venues, service providers and content suppliers.
The aim is to give total peace of mind throughout and Danny and his team tends to every logistical part of the wedding, especially with very complex, outdoor or unique sites. They are the ultimate safe pair of hands.
Experts in production
Danny Marx is a master in event production. He is detail led and solid, but still knows how to do interesting and unique. I first came across his work when we featured this stunning wedding at Ronit Farm in Herzliya (the wedding film is below).
Just WOW, right? The level of production that was needed for the Ibiza-style club stage setting, the pyrotechnics, the dancers, the intricate timings and details right down to the hip flasks of cocktails for the way home is astonishing.
Danny Marx doesn’t just dot I’s and cross T’s, he lights up the whole alphabet in neon and underlines it!
Destination Weddings in Israel
If you are considering hosting your wedding in Israel, I would DEFINITELY recommend the help of a cosmopolitan-minded Israeli wedding planner. You simply need that support on the ground if you’re trying to plan your wedding from abroad.
Danny Marx and his team have an intimate knowledge of Israel, and an impressive access to a huge range of exciting venues. Wedding in the desert anyone? Or a historical site? Or maybe a private residence?
Most importantly, they’ve got a huge network of the best (and often exclusive) contacts, who they’ll negotiate with on your behalf. Also they can produce that beautiful day you imagined — and more.
On a behind-the-scenes production level, Danny will also look after marriage registration, the ins-and-outs of holding your ceremony in Israel.
When Gal Gadot got married
Danny Marx has got such a good reputation as an event organiser in Israel that he was asked to produce the wedding of actress, former Miss Israel and current Wonder Woman – Gal Gadot.
Gal Godot and Yaron Versano hosted their wedding at the heart of Tel Aviv’s David InterContinental hotel. Danny and his team designed the hall as a New York City lounge and created a unique and very special wedding, teeming with celebrities from Israel and abroad.
If Danny Marx can handle the wedding of a Hollywood actress, imagine what he could do for your day? ?
Prices vary according to the season, complexity of the wedding, country, venue, and if there are any accompanying events (such as Shabbat Chatan)
In return you can expect total reliability, an in-depth knowledge of the best and exclusive suppliers and a refreshing dose of integrity concerning budget issues.
You can also expect straightforward communication throughout. Danny is of German origin and his business partner Alon is of British descent and this they say helps them to “provide their overseas clients with a European service to which they are accustomed”.
I hope that those of you keen to plan an Israeli celebration in Israel or outside of The Holy Land can see that there is an amazing wedding planner and producer in Danny Marx.
The master in providing the Israeli/Jewish experience will look at any level of budget and create your dream day. It will no doubt be EPIC.
