Omana-Colvin ***PHOTO***

Yurisleidy (Yuri) Rodriguez Omana and Kyle Andrew Colvin were married July 31 and afterward drove down Main Street in a vintage automobile filled with balloons, in the Cuban tradition.

Yuri, who is from Cuba, was walked down the aisle at Valley Bible Church by Kyle's dad because her family was unable to attend. She is a server at Baci Restaurant in Pleasanton and a full-time student at Las Positas College in preparation for dental hygiene school. She completed undergraduate work in Cuba to become a dentist. She is the daughter of Rita M. Omana Rodriguez of Guantanamo, Cuba, and the late Roberto E. Rodriguez Borges.

Kyle is a server at Epic Roasthouse in San Francisco. He is a 2006 graduate of Amador Valley High School, a former Pleasanton Police Explorer, and graduated from San Francisco State University in 2011 with a degree in Spanish. He is beginning an online program with St. Joseph's University in Pennsylvania to earn a master's degree in criminal justice and homeland security. He is the son of Dennis Colvin, also an Amador grad, and Denise Knauer Colvin, a graduate of Foothill.

The wedding was followed by a reception at a private home in Ruby Hill with Cuban music, clothes, food, mojitos and cigars. The couple is honeymooning in Dominican Republic and will reside in Pleasanton.
