Sprouse and Folio will marry in the Butterfly Creek Winery on Saturday in Mariposa, about 48km south of their original wedding site, and plan to return next year to the Strawberry Music Festival, where they got engaged last year. They had planned to attend the event this year as part of their wedding celebration.

When the fire forced Camp Mather, the festival’s site, to be evacuated, organizers had to postpone the 32nd annual Labor Day bluegrass festival that draws about 5,000 guests.

“I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and we will see you all next year at our one-year anniversary!” Sprouse posted on a festival Facebook page.
