One of the most famous couples in the world got married last week and finally put a stop on the rumor mill speculations. They always said that they will get married when their kids asked them to.
With that being the theme of the day, it’s not surprising that the children help make Angelina Jolie’s wedding dress, along with playing an integral part of the ceremony.
Jolie walked down the aisle with a wedding dress decorated with colorful drawings, made by the all of her and Brad Pitt’s 6 kids. The gown was simple, classic and elegant, just like Angie.
It was made by Atelier Versace master tailor Luigi Massi and it featured a fitted bodice with simple thin straps, the bust complete with ruching, and a plain waist than kicked out into a flowy full skirt. Luigi then hand-sewed a number of the children’s designs onto both the back of the dress and the full-length veil.
Angelina said on the event: “Luigi is like family to me and I couldn’t imagine anyone else making this dress. He knows and cares for the children and it was great fun putting it together. I wanted the kids to be a part of everything including the dress because that’s our family; that represents the way we live our life together.”
Her face was flawless and dewy, with brown shadow on her eyes, lashings of black mascara and a soft rose color on her famous pouty lips.
Brad also kept it simple, pulling a black suit from his full designer wardrobe. The only thing he didn’t have was a tie. He had to borrow one from one of their sons after forgetting to pack it.
Sons Maddox, 13, and Pax, 10, proudly walked their mother down the aisle in their smart black suits. Nine-year-old Zahara, in a dress designed by family friend Adama Kebe, and six-year-old Vivienne, who wore a white dress from her closet, were flower girls. Shiloh, eight, and six-year-old Knox were joint ring bearers, with Knox in a suit and Shiloh showing off her cute unique style in black dress shorts and shoes, a white shirt, black tie and top hat.
The couple exchanged custom wedding rings from jeweller Robert Procop. He actually created Angelina’s amazing engagement ring, an estimated 16-carat, emerald-cut diamond worth approximately $500,000.
Angelina promised her mother before she died that she’d get married in France. They were extremely close and the famous actress wanted to honor her. According to inside sources, Angie also paid tribute to her mom Marcheline Bertrand by donning a piece of sentimental jewelry, a small locket with a photo of her mother inside it.
