A Midsummer Night’s DREAM
Last August, Lenna Harris and Gabriel Lockwood emerged from the woods to the meadow at the Arroyo Hondo Preserve for their magical summer nuptials. Born and raised in Santa Barbara, Gabriel circled the globe visiting 20 countries and learning five languages for 11 years until he returned home in 2008 and met Lenna through a mutual friend. Five years later, he proposed on the summit of Mt. Conness, near Yosemite. After their heartfelt wedding ceremony—with words from John Muir as well as Hawaiian, Polish, Cherokee, and Jewish blessings—130 guests dined alfresco on Santa Maria-style barbecue beneath gold-tipped feathers swaying in the summer breeze. Later, the party moved to the historic barn for dancing under the full moon, craft cocktails, photo booth pictures, and carrot cake cupcakes made by the bride’s sister. The couple’s nine-day honeymoon was spent traversing the Sierras from west to east.
