Justin Verlander, Kate Upton share photos, details of wedding (pics)

Justin Verlander and Kate Upton this week released details and photographs of their Nov. 4 wedding, which came just days after the Houston Astros won the World Series.

The super-couple jetted off to Tuscany, Italy following the Astros’ Game 7 win on Nov. 1 for their nuptials. The sudden departure for the big day meant Verlander missed the Astros’ championship parade in Houston, something that inspired Upton to amusingly put her new husband in pretty dicey territory courtesy of some social media shenanigans.

That said, it sounds like the wedding was well worth skipping out on the parade.

“It was really important to Justin and me that it feel like we were on vacation with our closest friends and family,” Upton told “We set up an entire afternoon dedicated to interactive games, which we called the Uplander Olympics. Each guest received game-day rules, and everyone was divided into teams with custom Under Armour jerseys. The games included a ping-pong tournament, cornhole, a football toss, relay races, and an epic water balloon fight!”

It sounds like a grand time was had by one and all. Congrats to the newlyweds.
