Bliss: Wedding Bells for ADS!

Adriano de Souza walks down the aisle! Filipe and Gabs cheer!

Life is nothing if it ain’t a big roller coaster. One minute you’re on top of the world, sitting on the shoulders of friends and admirers being chaired up a beach. Surfing champ! The next minute, everyone, including all of your friends and admirers, are gazing inland, toward desolate Lemoore, California and Kelly Slater’s perfect little barrels. Alone! And the very next, you are back in front of friends and admirers gazing into the eyes of the one person who’s head will never be turned. Married!

Yes, the hardest working little champ, Adriano de Souza, married his sweetheart yesterday. Her name is Patricia Eicke and she seems lovely. The affair was well attended. Filipe Toledo was there, of course, as was Gabriel Medina and a who’s who of Brazilian celeb. And where are you now ADS haters? Your slings and arrows bounce off a coat of armor made of pure love. And where are you now Kelly Slater? Plotting an over-the-top wedding to Gwen Stefani? A star-studded elopement with Sofia Vergara? Too late! Nothing but nothing can taint this innocent glory.
