Kate Upton has given fans a glimpse into her gorgeous wedding held in Tuscany, Italy.
The American model and actress tied the knot with professional baseball player Justin Verlander at the Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco venue on 4 November (17), with the couple flying out shortly after Justin’s Houston Astros team won the World Series, defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers.
After initially releasing just one photo from her wedding on social media, Kate has now shared details and images from her big day with Vogue magazine, including snaps of her white lace wedding gown which boasted sleeves and a flowing train.
“For my ceremony dress, I had the pleasure of collaborating with the fantastic team at Valentino,” she shared. “They are the best at creating delicate, beautiful lace and details, and their Italian heritage kept the fashion and feel authentic to our venue. The design process was extremely collaborative, so I was able to really include my personal style and create my dream dress.”
Justin wore a classic black tuxedo from Cicchini Custom Clothier, with the inside of the jacket embroidered with the words “Just Married”.
Meanwhile, Kate’s sisters wore custom gowns from Christy Rilling Studio which were made from a soft pink fabric.
“Needle & Thread then matched my sisters’ dresses for the rest of the bridesmaids,” the 25-year-old said. “I loved the mixture of silk and lace in the dusty rose color – it really enhanced the romantic theme.”
When it came to wedding jewelry, Kate opted for a few sentimental touches. Justin had worked with Anita Ko on creating her eight-carat diamond engagement ring and wedding band, and she also sported a special sapphire piece too.
“My elderly grandmother was unable to attend the wedding due to the travel distance, so I was honoured she let me borrow her sapphire ring – it became my something old, borrowed, and blue,” she smiled.
