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.
