Carlos Santana, 63, knows how to make any event, well, smooth. And his December 19 wedding was no exception.

When rain threatened to mar his Maui nuptials to drummer Cindy Blackman, 51, the guitar legend — who split with wife of 34 years, Deborah in 2007 — opted for an indoor ceremony at the Ritz-Carlton.
