If you open the video's workspace you'll see an example in index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <title>RSVP App</title>
  <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Courgette" rel="stylesheet">
  <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lato:400,700" rel="stylesheet">
  <link href="css/style.css" rel="stylesheet">

In your code you aren't specifying any font families. You just have font1, font2, etc.

Also to add to Kris's answer, you are also missing the https: before your leading forward-slashes for the href attribute value of the link to the font.
