Carlos Santana and his new bride are ready to make some sweet music together.
Though the couple faced rain on their wedding day, they decided to embrace the conditions.

"The weather was kind of iffy, so we said, 'Let's just do it inside,'" Santana, 63, told People. "Because no matter where we did it, the sun was shining."
"Rain represents mercy," added Blackman, 51. "It couldn't have been more beautiful."
Santana is best known for the Latin fusion his eponymous band pioneered in the 1960s and 70s. They made their breakthrough at Woodstock in 1969 and recorded several top 10 hits, such as "Evil Ways" and "Black Magic Woman."
Blackman was a long-time member of Lenny Kravitz's band, but has also jammed with jazz giants Pharoah Sanders, Ron Carter and Joe Henderson. She is currently the touring drummer for Santana's band and he proposed to her on stage at a concert in Illinois last July.
