NBA Star Kevin Love and Model Kate Bock are Married

NBA star Kevin Love tied the knot with model Kate Bock in a glittering wedding held on June 25th at the New York City Public Library.

The couple arrived at the venue together and broke tradition on their big day. The wedding was attended by their near and dear ones along with celebrity guests who graced the occasion to bless the couple.

Speaking about their wedding venue, Kate told PEOPLE, “The city is so much a part of our story and it felt so right to bring all of our favorite people together into such an iconic New York City institution. Kevin and I are both very curious people and love literature, art, and history and the New York Public Library encompasses all of that in such a romantic setting.”

She added, “It evokes the old-school New York glamour we were searching for and is so iconic to the city that we love. We also love that it is so close by to the place we had our first date—the St. Regis Hotel.”

For her wedding day, the 34-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model preferred to wear a gown by Ralph Lauren that took more than 1800 man-hours to complete. 33-Year-old Kevin also wore Ralph Lauren’s classic black tuxedo.

She said that the dress was inspired by Grace Kelly’s wedding dress. Kate shared, “She was a true icon who I’ve always been inspired by and who I think is timeless. When I first saw the dress in person all I could think was, ‘this is a piece of art.’ It’s very special, very regal, and completely dazzling.”

Wedding Arrangements

One of the world’s top events & wedding planners Marcy Blum managed the event to make it a grand success.

The theme for the guests was to wear black and white for the event, which was described by the Canadian model Kate as a “ball evoking old-school NYC glamour, inspired by the Great Gatsby, Sinatra and the Hollywood icons of the ’50s and ’60s.”

The celebrity couple requested to make the donations to Kevin Love fund instead of wedding gifts. Kevin Love Fund’s primary focus is to assist people facing mental health challenges.

During an exclusive interview with E! News in May 2022, Kate was candid about her upcoming wedding planning process and confirmed that it included several mood boards for inspiration.
