Here are few fact about the most talked about Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka wedding you probably didn’t know about.

The couple has spent 10 years of their lives before deciding to get married. They have twins, Gideon Scott (boy) and Harper Grace (girl), by a surrogate mother. Because their kids tend to pressure them with questions like “Who is their daddy?” they decided to tie the knot so all the confusions of their kids will be answered. They think that it will be easier to say that David Burtka is the husband rather than a boyfriend or a partner. Nonetheless, they both loved and stayed together for quite some time so they deserved the wedding they both dreamed of.

There were only 45 people in the wedding

Yes, you read it right.

This is just an ideal intimate wedding for family and close friends that cared for them most.

According to them, the wedding is particularly a declaration rather than a proclamation.

Neil Patrick Harris only wants to say the most precious things to David and about David to those people that mattered the most to them.

Harris and David thought that their son Gideon Scott will be the one to make a scene in their wedding. But they were totally wrong.

Their daughter Harper Grace is the one to take the spotlight.

She was supposed to be the flower girl but she was crying, clinging and almost crying.

Harris told David that they just all go together but David resolved it by asking Harper a question, “Well, if Gideon goes first, then will you go?” Then Harper agreed and the wedding proceeded.

Orange bearer instead of ring bearer.

What is an orange bearer? Well, it literally means someone giving oranges to the guests.

Gideon wants to do that so his parents allowed him to, thinking that it will be more unique and special.
