As the sun set in Perugia, Italy, on Sept. 6, it cast a warm glow on the bucolic hilltop city.

Amid this tranquil setting – within the walls of a castle – Neil Patrick Harris, 41, and partner David Burtka, 39, exchanged some long-awaited “I dos.”

With their soon-to-be 4-year-old fraternal twins dressed in their wedding best (daughter Harper Grace donned a white dress, and son Gideon Scott finished his look with a top hat), the couple wed in an “intimate ceremony surrounded by their close friends and family,” Harris’s rep told PEOPLE.

For their officiant, they chose Pam Fryman, a longtime friend and director of Harris’s hit sitcom How I Met Your Mother.

“Their wedding vows were so beautiful,” guest Kelly Ripa said afterward.
