Kelly Ripa went to Italy for the wedding, which she says was held in a castle!
“It was a beautiful, beautiful family affair in Perugia, Italy.” she said. “They rented a castle—or, I think they rented it! I hope we didn’t break into a castle. It was a really beautiful. Sir Elton John performed. There were fireworks. The food was amazing.”
She also added: “There were magic tricks, because you know, Neil is way into magic.”
She also said that their three-year-old fraternal twins, Gideon and Harper played a major role in the big day. She said that Harper was the flower girl but Gideon decided he didn’t want to be the ring bearer anymore. He told his parents he wanted to be the “orange boy,” so he instead passed out oranges on the way down the aisle!
