Photos: Angelina Jolie's Wedding Dress Featured Her Children's Art
Earlier this year Angelina Jolie said that her kids "will in a way be the wedding planners." Now that there are pictures out from her wedding ceremony with Brad Pitt last week, we can see that their children were her wedding dress designers as well.
HELLO! says Jolie wore an otherwise traditional sleeveless white gown designed by Luigi Massi of Atelier Versace, but the backside and the veil were covered by the artwork of her children Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight, and six-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
Jolie had joked that by giving her kids the reins, her wedding might turn out to be Disney or paintball-themed but the ceremony turned out to be more-or-less traditional, according to PEOPLE. Jolie's father Jon Voight wasn't invited to the secret wedding in France, but Maddox and Pax walked their mom down the aisle. Zahara and Vivienne were the flower girls. Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers. Pax baked the cake. The kids helped to write the vows.
The couple released a statement about their big day: "It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter. It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family."
