MADRID, July 8 (CHANCE) -
Basketball player, Marc Gasol, 28, is now married to Cristina Blesa, 26. Under tight security, the ceremony took place in Can Riera de la Pineda's estate on July 7th at 19:00.
The gorgeous Roman Villa restored in 2004, situated in Arbucies (Girona), was heavily guarded to prevent the media from accessing; all they could do was take pictures of the arriving guests inside their vehicle. Among the guests there were of course star basketball players like Jorge Garbajosa, Juan Carlos Navarro, Fernando Sanemeterio, Ricky Rubio and Sergio Llull.
Despite the tight security the newlyweds we're captured by the photographers as they posed for their wedding photo shoot, which was a bucolic idyll. The paparazzi took some snapshots of the couple sitting on the grass, of Marc picking her up... click here and see our gallery!
The bride's dress was not conventional. Cristina Blesa chose a two toned design for her big day. The top was white with short sleeves and collar while the skirt was a very 'flowy' green apple color. Her hair was styled loose and wavy with a discreet headband for accent. Meanwhile Marc Gasol opted for a classic beige suit.
The details of the Memphis Grizzlies player's ceremony remained in strict secrecy. It was just learned that it was a civil ceremony followed by a cocktail and a dinner.
Laker's player Pau Gasol, who was accompanied by his girlfriend Silvia Lopez, announced on Twitter: "Today my brother gets married."
