No, it's not Anushka or Virat saying so, but supermodel Kate Upton who chose this destination for her wedding with baseball star Justin Verlander

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Kate Upton, 25, has said the reason she chose Tuscany as the destination for her wedding to Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander was because they have some sweet memories of the place.

That's where the couple, who tied the knot in Lisa Vorce, Tuscany on November 4, went on their first holiday together. The duo shared stunning pictures of their marriage (above) on Instagram yesterday.

"It's [Tuscany] extremely romantic and will always be a special place for us. We fell in love with the Rosewood Castiglion Del Bosco resort because of its amazing history and incredible scenery," Upton told Vogue magazine.

Upton said she took inspiration from the Italian venue to help her in the dress design process. "For my ceremony dress, I had the pleasure of collaborating with the fantastic team at Valentino," she added. Verlander's tuxedo did surprise Upton. "He had a cute detail on the inside of the jacket that read 'Just Married' when he held it open," Upton explained.
