Carlos Santana and Cindy Blackman are married
Santana and Blackman said "I do" on a rainy Dec. 19 at the Ritz-Carlton on Maui, with 180 guests including George Lopez, Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, the couple told People. They brought things indoors and integrated the rainwater into the ceremony -- and Hancock and Shorter played at the reception.
Makes sense that Santana would be hip to the love vibe, as he proposed to Blackman during another celebrity wedding bender during the summer. The guitarist popped the question four songs into a July 9 concert in Illinois, right after his girlfriend finished her drum solo. Yes, the crowd went wild.
"Cindy is a match with everything that I am," Santana told the magazine, "from fire of passion to vulnerability."
And what about Prince William and Kate Middleton? Already old news, kids -- that engagement came way back in November.
