[pullquote quote=”Everything tastes better when you share it with your soul mate” credit=”Carlos Santana”]People Magazine is reporting that the 63 year old rocker got married on December 19th to his drummer, Cindy Blackman.
Santana and Blackman didn’t let the rainy weather in Maui ruin their day. Instead, they moved the wedding inside the Ritz-Carlton. Carlos told People, “No matter where we did it, the sun was shining.”
The guest list consisted of 180 guests and a fair share of celebrities including comedian George Lopez and musician [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Herbie Hancock[/lastfm].
The bride wore a custom-made silk dress from the Zurich boutique Zoro for the ceremony. Santana, who proposed during a concert in July, also released doves with his bride “to release our purity and love into the cosmos.”
The newlyweds told People that after honeymooning in Hawaii over the holidays, Carlos is already back to work as he kicks off his new residency at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas. He is also basking in the glow of married life.
“Cindy is a match with everything that I am, from fire of passion to vulnerability,” he says. “Everything tastes better when you share it with your soul mate.”
