Engagement: Criesta Jerray and Jonathan Terry Flores

By From page B7 | August 30, 2013

Criesta Jerray of Placerville and Jonathan Terry Luke Flores (Jonny Mojo) of Placerville, announced their engagement.

Flores proposed to Jerray on May 25 during a full moon at the 2013 Spring Strawberry Music Festival on Sunrise Trail in San Francisco’s Camp Mather located just outside the Yosemite National Park boundary.

Flores’ up and coming band, Achilles Wheel, had performed on the Strawberry Main Stage the previous day, Friday, May 24.

As many Strawberry Music Festivals have proven to be this was truly a memorable weekend of mountain, music, magic and love.

With the Rim Fire ablaze in the Stanislaus National Forest and Yosemite National Park — resulting in the cancellation of the 2013 Fall Strawberry Music Festival — where the couple was to work on staff — they felt the need to spread some positive thoughts.

They send their heartfelt gratitude to those who are fighting to contain the Rim Fire. A truly heroic effort to minimize damage, save lives and communities.

The bride-elect is an artist.

She is the daughter of Vicki Marie Deerwester of Sunnyvale and Barth “Ski” Lewis Gutowsky of Placerville.

The groom-elect is a musician.

He is the son of LaRonda Kaye Hafeli of Modesto and Gary Flores of Modesto

The wedding is set for June 21, 2015 in Lotus.
