Colbie Smulders's wedding to Saturday Night Live funnyman Taran Killam on Saturday was a star studded – and family-friendly – affair.
Smulders's How I Met Your Mother castmates Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan were on hand for the celebration – and so were their little kids.
"Spent the weekend with the family at one of the most fantastic weddings I've ever attended. Good times. So much love," Harris Tweeted on Sunday.
It was all about family for Smulders (who wore a Claire Pettibone gown) and Killam, who are parents to 3-year-old daughter Shaelyn.

Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka's kids Gideon and Harper may only be 15-months-old – but that doesn't impact the way the actor talks to them. It's a parenting tip he says he picked up from his own mom and dad.
"My parents always talked to my brother and myself like we were regular people and not babies," Harris tells PEOPLE. "So I don't talk down to them in baby talk. I try to talk to them even though they can't speak the language yet."
As for their personalities, Harris says, "They're thankfully in the new huggy, clingy, head-on-shoulders phase, which is fantastic. It'll brighten up a sad day every single time."
