On November 10, 2012, Christen Michelle Blocker, daughter of Keith and Susan Blocker of Lompoc, and Kenneth William Murray, son of Douglas and Gretchen Murray of Santa Barbara were joined in marriage in Nipomo, CA.
Christy was attended by Maid of Honor Kaetlyn Blocker (sister), Karli Blocker (Bride's cousin) and Lindsey Arevalos. Ken was attended by Best Man, Ben Johnson, Kirk Blocker (bride's brother) and David Graner. Junior Bridesmaids were Kacie Orozco (Bride's cousin) and Kayla Christian (Groom's niece), while Violet Young (Groom's cousin) and Nathan Robertson (Bride's cousin) were Flower Girl and Ring Bearer.
The ceremony was held in an intimate country setting in the beautiful historic foothills of Rancho Nipomo. The reception immediately followed in the romantic Dana Powers Barn located adjacent to the ceremony. A wonderful historic venue, with dinner, music, and dancing created the perfect intimate setting for friends and family celebrating the special day.
Christy is a graduate of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (agriculture business major) and Lompoc High School. Ken is a graduate of UC Berkeley (mechanical engineering), UC Santa Cruz (business management economics) and San Marcos High School. Ken and Christy met at Kidde Dual Spectrum where they both are employed. After a honeymoon in St. Lucia, the happy couple is at home in Goleta.
