Capping off a perfect week after watching her fiancé win the World Series, supermodel Kate Upton is now a married woman.

Kate and Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander wed on Saturday in an intimate ceremony in Italy, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

Kate wore a long-sleeved lace white gown with a long white veil. Meanwhile, Justin wore a classic black tux. The model carried a bouquet of peach, light pink and ivory flowers and the outdoor ceremony was decorated with similar floral arrangements.

Dating since early 2014, Justin proposed to Kate with a ring he custom-designed with jeweler Anita Ko right before baseball season began in 2016, but the couple didn’t reveal their engagement until last year’s Met Gala.

As for wedding plans, Kate has said their focus would be on “fun, party, tequila and food.”

In May, she began her search for the perfect dress, attending the Pronovias show in Barcelona looking for “something that’s classic, with a sexy twist,” and insisted her fiancé would love her in anything. “Justin is so supportive and I don’t think that he would honestly have a strong opinion in that way,” she said. “He’s a lover, not a judger.”

Justin has long been a huge cheerleader for his fiancée’s career, supporting her as she takes on tough workouts and covers the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. And she returned the favor as his team played a nailbiting World Series against the Dodgers, cheering him on in a special Houston Astros necklace and rushing the field as his team took the final win. It’s no wonder Kate told PeopleStyle “Our relationship is my favorite thing about my life right now.”
