17. Kate Upton and Justin Verlander
Another Italy wedding, but don’t worry, it’s nothing like the other Italian wedding we’ve seen. Somehow model Kate Upton and Houston Astors pitcher Justin Verlander found a way to make their wedding both extremely personal and incredibly luxurious. They gave their wedding a sports feel coming up with the Uplander Olympics – at the weekend of the wedding, the came up with a series of sport games, the guests received sports uniform, were divided into teams – and let the games begin! It was nothing too extreme, though, as the games included a ping-pong tournament, a football toss and a water balloon fight.
They wanted to make their wedding a fun vacation, and they found the best possible way to do that. However, the wedding didn’t go as smoothly as they would have liked, since the couple was late for their own wedding ceremony! No, it wasn’t due to traffic, but because Justin had to work – the weekend of the wedding was also the weekend of an important championship game for Houston Astors (who ended up beating the Los Angeles Dodgers), and so this made Justin late for his own wedding. But at least he ended up celebrating two things. And though the wedding didn’t go as smooth as any bride would like, or at least didn’t start off so smoothly, they didn’t let it ruin their big day for even a minute.
