Kelly Ripa was invited to the wedding of Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka and she must have really enjoyed herself, because she cannot stop talking about it.
On the Monday episode of Live! With Kelly And Michael, Kelly couldn’t wait to talk about the wedding.
“I spent the weekend, in Italy,” Ripa, 43, told her co-host Michael Strahan. “I went to a destination wedding… the wedding of Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka,” she continued as the room erupted into cheers. “They got married, yes!”
Kelly went on to say that Neil and David had planned the wedding as a private ceremony that only included close friends and family members.
She even joked that they probably didn’t want her talking about it.
“Neil said I could talk about it,” Ripa quicky added.
“It was a beautiful family affair in Perugia, Italy. They rented a castle — or I think they rented it. I hope we didn’t break into a castle and just stayed there,” Ripa recalled. “Sir Elton John performed. There were fireworks. The food was amazing. There were magic tricks, because, you know Neil is way into magic. Their wedding vows were so beautiful.”

Kelly said that the best part of the ceremony was the part that didn’t go according to plans and involved the couple’s two young children, Gideon and Harper.
“Harper was going to be the flower girl and Gideon was going to be the ring bearer,” Ripa revealed.
Gideon apparently didn’t think being the ring bearer sounded like too much fun so he gave himself a different role in the wedding.
“He said, ‘I don’t want to be the ring bearer. I want to be the orange boy,'” Ripa said. “And he passed out oranges to everybody as he came down the aisle… he came up with it on his own. He had his little tux and his top hat and he passed out oranges.”
Although Neil and David may have wanted to keep their wedding private, now that some of the details are out, everyone will want to know more and hopefully we’ll see a few photos.
