Mark is a “Flagstaff local” and it seems everyone around town knows him. This is probably because Mark has provided many lucky feet with comfort and durability with his creation, Teva sandals. And even though these world-famous sandals provide people with safe, easy steps, the best step Mark ever took was marrying Kali, his new wife and stunning bride. Teva happens to be the Hebrew word for nature which is where their beautiful wedding was held: Mark and Kali’s home in the Arizona forest, which lent itself as the perfect venue for their perfect day.
Kali and Mark included many personal touches in their meaningful ceremony. They made their own chuppah and incorporated some Native American wedding traditions in their ceremony to honor the Northern Arizona region in which they live. Mark’s sister, Leslie, helped the rabbi officiate, Mark’s son walked his dad down the aisle and delivered the rings, and Mark sang a song to Kali. They provided a program that explained many of the Jewish traditions for the guests. After the ceremony, the reception was held in their driveway where the band played on and guests enjoyed delicious food. Love was in the desert air as the couple took their first steps into newlywed bliss.
Mazel tov, Kali and Mark!
