A romantic Tuscan villa. Fireworks. A Red Party rehearsal dinner. Uplander Olympics. It was a wedding not to be missed. But the bride and groom — actress and model, Kate Upton, and Houston Astros pitcher, Justin Verlander, almost did! Delayed by the whirlwind of the World Series (which they did in fact win!), the couple arrived at their own wedding party after all of their guests. Vogue and Brides share the details of the couple’s incredible story.
