How Brad Pitt honoured Angelina Jolie's mother at their wedding.

When Angelina Jolie walked down the aisle last weekend, she must have thought of her mother.

The absence of The Mother of The Bride is always heartbreaking at a wedding. Jolie’s mother, Marcheline Bertrand, died in 2007 from ovarian cancer.

But Brad Pitt found a beautiful way to honour Marcheline’s memory. He had her name and a tribute etched into the walls of Chateau Miraval.

“Brad had a dedication to Marcheline engraved inside the chapel where we stood,” Jolie tells PEOPLE. The couple also stood on a stone at the altar that had a tribute etched into it. 

This, and the way Angelina’s dress was decorated with her children’s drawings, certainly made the Jolie-Pitt ceremony an extremely sentimental one.

Beautifully done, beautiful people.

Here’s some more pictures of these beautiful people.
