Most of us are familiar with Kate Upton. If not from her astonishingly hot photoshoots, then from her (in)famous Game of War ads.
She’s probably one of the most desired women on the planet, but as we all know, last year she and Justin Verlander got engaged.
Well, they’ve followed through, folks. Kate Upton and Justin got married.
Let’s start by remembering that Kate Upton’s huge boobs aren’t all that there is to her.
(And that isn’t a joking way of segueing into talking about her butt or whatever)
It’s true that her Game of War commercials weren’t, um, the best.
Don’t get us wrong, the sight of a fantasy battlefield is super engaging, and Kate Upton is all kinds of beautiful.
But between the realization that the commercial’s for a freemium mobile game and the fact that Kate Upton mostly just walked in front of a green screen while her boobs hooked viewers’ attention, we don’t know that they were effective ads.
(“Sex sells” has been somewhat disproven, as people are less likely to remember what excessively sexy people are selling)
But, even though Mariah Carey’s Game of War commercial was somehow better, it wasn’t Kate Upton’s fault that her commercials were ridiculed.
She’s a complex, multi-dimensional person.
She has a cross tattoo and has spoken about her experiences as a Christian within the modeling world, which has helped to shatter the image that outspoken Christians can’t become models who pose topless or advertise alcohol.
Anyway, we learned in May of 2016 that Kate Upton and Justin Verlander were engaged.
They had apparently become quietly engaged before that season of baseball — the sport that Justin plays — had even begun.
At the time, Justin Verlander’s team wasn’t really dominating the field, but people noted that it didn’t really matter — he was engaged to one of the most gorgeous models on the planet.
(A little perspective is healthy, folks)
Some celebrity engagements drag on for years and years. Others fizzle out as celebs have all sorts of ridiculous drama.
Not so for Kate and Justin.
On Saturday, November 4th, this couple followed through and got married, Us Weekly confirms.
At the Rosewood Castiglion Del Bosco resort in Tuscany, Italy, the 25-year-old model and the 34-year-old baseball player celebrated their union.
The wedding itself took place in a beautiful medieval church.
They opted for a medium-sized wedding, which makes a pretty sharp contrast with Kate’s whopper of an engagement ring.
Kate Upton, back when she first revealed their engagement, mentioned that she wanted lots and lots of flowers at the wedding.
Justin Verlander, as it happens, is allergic to flowers, but if an allergy pill can cover it, it sounds worth it to make the wedding picture-perfect.
Though, honestly, if flowers are going to be photographed with Kate Upton, nobody’s going to be looking at the floral arrangements.
Italy is a gorgeous location for a wedding, particularly if you’re in the market for a historical church.
Remember, Italy has been the seat of Roman Catholicism for over 1,500 years. It’s literally the birthplace of cathedrals and smaller churches, and of the Roman basilicas that inspired the first cathedrals.
There’s no word on whether Kate’s dog, a boxer named Harley, was present for the ceremony.
But gosh, we hope so — you want your family there for the wedding!
