Neil Patrick Harris seems to have taken a page from the Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie book on how to get married.

Like Brangelina did a couple of weekends ago in France, Harris and longtime partner David Burtka tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in front of family and friends.

Harris posted a photo from the Saturday ceremony on Twitter on Monday with this message: “Guess what? @DavidBurtka and I got married over the weekend. In Italy. Yup, we put the 'n' and 'd' in 'husband.’”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “How I Met Your Mother” director Pam Fryman officiated and Elton John, a friend of the couple, performed at the reception.

The newlyweds’ two 3-year-old daughter and son, Harper and Gideon, were also part of the ceremony.

Guests, including Kelly Ripa, did a darn good job of keeping the affair a secret. Ripa revealed on Monday’s “Live with Kelly & Michael” that she couldn’t attend Joan Rivers’ funeral on Sunday in New York because she was at the wedding.

“I went to a destination wedding – the wedding of Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka, breaking news!” Ripa said. “It was a very quiet, very private, very family affair ... I probably wasn’t even supposed to talk about it, no Neil said I could talk!”
