Carlos Santana Drums Up a New Wife

Carlos Santana has found the perfect drummer to make music with.

The Supernatural rocker tied the knot with jazz musician Cindy Blackman last month at the Ritz Carlton in Maui, E! News confirmed Wednesday.

While the couple planned on an outdoor ceremony, rain forced the party inside—and prompted the couple to make a spur-of-the-moment addition to the celebration.

"My favorite part of the ceremony was when we washed our hands in a bowl of rainwater," Blackman told People, adding that it was Santana's son, Salvador, who had the idea.

"We absolved ourselves of all things past and all things future except the two of us. It felt so clearing to do that." The couple also released doves into the air as a symbol of their union.

This is the second trip down the aisle for Santana, who was married to Deborah Santana for 34 years before she filed for divorce in 2007. They have three kids together, Salvador and two daughters, Angelica and Stella.

Santana popped the question onstage last July during a show in Tinley Park, Ill., right after Blackman's drum solo.

About 180 guests watched the 10-time Grammy winner take the plunge again, including George Lopez, Herbie Hancock and jazzman Wayne Shorter, who also performed.

Figuring they were good right where they were, the newlyweds honeymooned in Hawaii before Santana had to return to Vegas to kick off his concert series at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
