AceShowbiz - Kate Upton and Justin Verlander are now officially man and wife, and they couldn't help sharing the happy news. Two days after tying the knot in Italy, the couple took to their Instagram accounts to share the first official picture from their big day.
The 25-year-old model and the 34-year-old MBL player were beaming as they walked back down the aisle while the guests were cheering them. Kate wrote in the caption, "I feel so lucky that I got to marry my best friend!! @justinverlander Thank you to our family and friends for making this weekend so fun and magical!"
Justin posted the same photo on his own account and wrote along with it, "Happy wife happy life! What an amazing beginning to our journey together! @kateupton #justmarried."
Kate and Justin tied the knot at an old medieval church at the Rosewood Castiglion Del Bosco resort in Tuscany, Italy on Saturday, November 4, just days after Justin won the World Series with the Houston Astros. The church was located on the top of a hill amidst ancient ruins and overlooking the Montalcino valley and vineyards.
The bride was stunning in a white Valentino dress with lace sleeves. Her hair was parted to the side in loose waves. The groom looked sharp in a black tuxedo with a black bow tie. Her six bridesmaids wore blush-colored dresses.
The wedding venue was adorned with deep red and blush flowers and olive branches mixed in to continue the authentic Italian theme. After the ceremony which lasted 30 minutes, the couple and the guests continued the celebration at the restaurant on the same property.
Kate started dating Justin in 2014. They got engaged in 2016. "I'm really excited, he asked me right before season started so we've been keeping it on the down low for quite a while," she broke the news at MET Gala. "So I'm excited to finally be able to share it with the world!"
