Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt’s wedding photos cover People, Hello magazines

jolie people

Well, well. I wondered last week if Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were going to sell/give away their wedding photos to People Magazine and Hello, and wouldn’t you know? It happened. I don’t know if People/Hello paid for this exclusive, but I suspect they did. Or at the very least, the magazines made a substantial contribution to one of the Jolie-Pitt foundations or charities. You can read Hello’s exclusive here, and here’s People’s article:

When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie went about planning their big day, they didn’t have to look far to find the perfect wedding planners: their six children.

The intimate Aug. 23 ceremony – attended by just 20 friends and family members – was held in the chapel of Château Miraval, the family’s estate in the French village of Correns. The wedding – including exclusive photos of the ceremony, Jolie’s unique dress (decorated with her children’s artwork!) and the entire family’s celebration – is featured in this week’s issue of PEOPLE, in conjunction with Hello! magazine internationally.

Each child had a key role to play: Eldest sons Maddox, 13, and Pax, 10, walked their mom down the aisle; flower girls Zahara, 9, and Vivienne, 6, tossed petals gathered from the garden; and Shiloh, 8, and Knox, 6, served as ring bearers. The kids also helped write their parents’ vows. And Pax baked the cake!

“It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter,” Pitt, 50, and Jolie, 39, tell PEOPLE. “It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family.”

Even Jolie’s dress was an expression of her kids’ creativity: Luigi Massi, the master tailor at Atelier Versace, sewed dozens of designs from her children’s drawings into the dress and veil.

“Luigi is like family to me and I couldn’t imagine anyone else making this dress,” says Jolie. “He knows and cares for the children and it was great fun putting it together.”

Pitt wore a suit from his closet – with a tie borrowed from one of his sons because Pitt forgot to pack his. Zahara’s dress was designed by family friend Adama Kebe. Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, and Knox wore black suits (Shiloh’s included shorts and a top hat), and Vivienne wore a white dress from her closet. Jeweler Robert Procop, who designed Jolie’s engagement ring, created the couple’s wedding bands.

[From People]

I’m not disappointed with the kids at all, but THIS DRESS is a nightmare. I’m not even talking about the kids’ drawings on the back, although the execution of that is… not very good. But the silhouette, the design, the style of the dress just doesn’t suit her. Angelina is good in streamlined clothes and I really don’t get the bust of this dress at all. Ugh! Oh well. It wasn’t my wedding. Everything else is fine, I guess. I’m just grumbling about the dress. (And Shiloh wore WEDDING SHORTS! Montenegro Style!)

    The dress looks like it’s from the Michelle Duggar collection for David’s Bridal. I mean, Dame Jolie doesn’t have style… but come on. And the kids’ drawings… that’s what refrigerator doors are made for, right?

    I’m surprised they went with People. The last few years the Jolie-Pitts have been elevating and distancing themselves from the rest of the celeb pack. Huh.

  2. tifzlan says:

    Aw i love the dress! I think she looks gorgeous. She’s almost always in black or dark-colorer clothes but i love seeing her in white.

  3. PunkyMomma says:

    I loved the kiss. Swoon.

  4. javaj77 says:

    I told you there’s no way Shiloh wore a dress……

    • Greyson says:

      Yeah, I didn’t think so either. I love how they let her dress how she wants to dress! Critics can take a seat, she’s a child and her parents are letting her express herself. Good to see that.

    • starrywonder says:

      Ha! So E and US Weekly was wrong Nothing they described looks like what these photos are showing. I am going to say though I’m disappointed they sold the photos. All celebs seem to pimp when they have movies coming out.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        But you have to remember ‘why’ the Jolie-Pitts started selling their photos. When asked about selling their photos during an NPR interview In 2011 Brad said they talked about it and decided they’d rather put the money to good use rather than have it go in the pockets of certain Paps (probably like the ones who trespassed on their property and camped out for days taking unsuspected pictures of the family with a high-powered lens). Since they at least give the money to Charity, I don’t really have a problem with them doing it. The majority of other celebrities pocket the money they make from such ‘life event’ photos.

      • Kate says:

        That makes sense with baby pictures, because no matter what they did eventually someone was going to get a pic and it would sell for millions. But their wedding day was one day, so if there wasn’t a pap there on the day (which there obviously wasn’t), then no one else was ever going to profit from it, pictures were never going to be released by someone else.

        I don’t know, if I was them I’d be wanting to keep the things I could keep private, private. It’s not like they don’t have the money to donate the same amount the tabloids would personally.

      • lisa says:

        someone could go up in the cloud and take them, or at least root around for them and take something else

        i think it makes sense to lessen the demand. this isnt some b lister or reality has been wedding, there is interest.

  5. CharlotteS says:

    She looks beautiful, the embroidery was a lovely touch.

  6. Bea says:

    I think the dress and the sentiment along with it is beautiful and Angelina obviously loves it and that’s all that matters.

    They wanted their wedding to be a family affair and it was exactly the way that they wanted it to be.

  7. SpookySpooks says:

    God, what an ugly dress. What does Montenegro style mean? Do people from Montenegro have some special style?

    • Katherine says:

      Yes, think your father in long shorts and black socks barbecuing in the backyard. Maybe throw in a plaid shirt. Or updated it would be 1970s bad fashion.

      The joke being that some countries are always behind the times fashion wise. Maybe because they are less affluent or Vogue just takes a looooong time to get there.

  8. Janet says:

    Love the dress and it fits her perfectly. And my God that veil is epic! Only Angie would think of something like that.

    I think it’s hilarious how Eonline got every single one of their “details” wrong. Every. Single. One.

  9. Kali says:

    Awww, hate on the wedding dress all you want. I’m just gonna sit here smiling away at the thought of those kids seeing their Mum walk down the aisle wearing a dress that they had helped (in a way) decorate.

    Dangit, I’m getting sappy in my old age.

  10. truthSF says:

    The veil has the drawings on it, not the actual dress. And I like it, I’m sure the only ppl that mattered to her (kids/Brad) loved the dress/veil too.

  11. hutter says:

    Love the dress with the children’s drawings.
    But I’m rather disappointed that they did sell (?) the pictures. I don’t know why I’m surprised about that, though.

    • Abbott says:

      Im with you, hutter. They’ve been releasing information the last few years through outlets like the NYTimes and AP. I wonder what the motivation was behind this (other than $$ going to charity).

    • aang says:

      No matter how “above it all” they seem, they are still celebs with a brand to sell. I’m not surprised. And I’m not hating on them for it. Happy Family is their schtick and they work it well.

    • bns says:

      And then Brad complains in interviews about lack of privacy…

      • Linn says:

        Well, THEY decided to publish pictures they chose to be published witch is a very different thing to having Paparazzi following them around of rude people shooting pictures of them without asking. Especially if it concerns their children.

        And selling the pictures themselves means that the money probably goes to charity instead of some Paparazzi’s pocket.

      • bns says:


        Whenever he complains it’s not just about the paparazzi, but the general interest that the public has with his personal life, even though he’s the main one perpetuating it.

      • The Original G says:

        I’ve only heard Brad complain abut the kids being unexpectedly crashed by paps. Not themselves. I believe they’ve come to be able to manage their press and achieve some sort of balance.

        They know they’re movie stars.

      • bns says:

        @The Original G

        I have heard Brad complain about how he “didn’t sign up for this” when he decided that he wanted to become an actor and he also said that the media attention surrounding them was an out of control circus that distracted from him being taken seriously as an actor.

      • ataylor says:

        To be honest, when Brad became an actor…hell, when most of the current mid/late 30′s, middle-aged Hollywood A/B-list decided to become actors…the media, the tabloids, the paparazzi was NOTHING like it is now. Celebrity blogs were non-existent. The internet was something that was only used by Computer Science/Engineering majors. AOL wasn’t even around. This 24/7 celebrity news phenomenon is a relatively new deal. The only people that I think would be expecting this type of coverage is the new breed of “Young Hollywood” starlets, reality show rejects and anyone that decided to become an actor or actress sometime after 2000/2001.

        I would never expect the FRIENDS cast to expect this type of intrusion when that show first started. The cast of That 70′s Show? Most definitely. They were in the thick of it and certain celebs (Looking at you Kutcher) helped encourage that type of media intrusion to further their careers.

      • Katherine says:

        When does Brad complain about lack of privacy? Complaining about physically violent or physically intrusive paparazzi is not the same thing. Asking them to not scare his children or break onto his property is also not the same thing.

        Brad handles the intrusions caused by his celebrity more graciously than anyone else I can think of except Angelina.

      • Sal says:

        I’m not sure how one exclusive has anything to do with day to day privacy. I think you are desperately reaching there.

    • Hannah says:

      I don’t understand why people are surprised because Brangie have always sold to Hello. They did for Shiloh and twins birth too. Celebs are celebs. It makes money for a college fund or charity.

    • Artemis says:

      When they release news to the Times etc it’s more for her philanthropic efforts and serious business like that but the celeb side of them is usually through the regular gossip magazines.

    • pwal says:

      Bite your tongue, Virgilia.

      It was the New York Times, not the NY Post. NY Post is one of the Rupert Murdoch papers which has been shady in all matters Jolie-Pitt, in particular the News of the World.

  12. GiGi says:

    I actually really love the style of the dress. It’s flattering and wedding-ish and not a sack. Plus I love that heavy satin – my grandmother’s dress was made of that – gorgeous!

    And, of course, I love the drawings on the veil & dress. It’s very sweet. I maybe would’ve had them done all in one color or embroidered in white or something. But this is nice – very family as we anticipated.

  13. lower-case deb says:

    i don’t know what to think.

    i’d prefer them to just keep it to themselves as we have praised them before. sad to see them stoop as low as Kim and Kanye afterall

    i dislike the ruching of the dress, but i like the children’s details. it’s a couture equivalent of children drawings on pristine walls.

    • bns says:

      At least Kim and Kanye went to Vogue.

    • Greyson says:

      I completely disagree. They sold photos of Shiloh and the twin’s when they were born. The money went to charity, the same as now.

      Heck even Jay Z and Beyoncé who married in secret eventually released photos of their wedding. It’s not strange or selling out for celebs to do this so people stop pestering them. Just as many celebs will pose for a few pictures so paparazzi stop following them around.

      • eva says:

        I’m guessing they wanted the money from the first shots of them together married to go to a charity and not a paparazzi pocket.

      • Artemis says:

        Incorrect. Bey-Z didn’t sell anything. They used footage of her wedding dress(very short footage at that and no official photos) 3 YEARS after the fact. Then another 3 years later they release a blurry video of the nuptials.
        And they were in fact pestered since the press didn’t even know they were engaged.

        All very different from Brangelina with their fans being adamant that they would maybe release one picture like with Pitt’s first marriage or that they were already married (lol) and would release the info when they were ready. There was not really any time for them to be ‘pestered’ since nobody knew and once they did, the nude pictures leaked. It was world news for one hot second.

      • Greyson says:

        @ Artemis – Read it over again. I said Jay Z and Beyoncé released photos eventually. Not sold.

      • Artemis says:

        I did read. I should have framed my words better, sorry.

        My point was that if you’re going to make a comparison to another celebrity couple then don’t start with a couple that didn’t sell pictures and had a time frame of 3 years in between releases.

        Also, the press found it out themselves through their marriage license 3 weeks after the event. And then Bey-Z also refused to address their marriage months after the fact even though people knew about it. Their whole relationship well up until 2010 is a real example of privacy. Nothing like Brangelina.

      • Greyson says:

        It’s comparing apples to oranges. Jay Z and Beyoncé are big stars who are at the top of their industry, but they do not match the same interest as Brangelina does. No other celebrity couple does.

        Judging them for not following the same play book doesn’t make sense. Angie and Brad had a small private family-centered ceremony and no leaks before the wedding. The only reason people knew it happened was because marriages are public record. They chose to release some pictures after the fact so they could get ahead of the story (that is, have some editorial control of the details they OK with sharing) and to raise money for charity.

        I don’t see how that makes them famewh0res, but you and I will just have to disagree.

        I don’t think Jay Z and Bey somehow did it “better”. They can’t command the same amount of money for the photos they released, but few celebs couples could. It’s a moot point since Jay Z and Beyoncé are very public about their marriage and family life now.

      • andypandy says:

        In all fairness where in @Artemis response was she /he judging Brangelina or calling them fame whores ???.
        All that was being said is that your initial comment which compared Jayz/Beyoncé use of a blurry video of her wedding dress at a concert some 3 -4 years after their wedding to this multipage tabloid spread within days of The Brange nuptial is an extremely flawed comparison . (In fact to date other than Beyonces dress there are no pics of the actual wedding in the public domain) Its not about who did it better who’s more famous blah blah its just not the same thing and thus not a good example of whatever point you were trying to make.

        P.S Quite frankly its any couples biz to decide to do whatever they want with their wedding pics

    • Tifygodess24 says:

      I would agree BUT Kim and kanye did it to line their pockets , pretty sure Brad and Angie did it to line the pockets of a CHARITY. I don’t care for Angie an Brad but they are no Kim and kanye , thank goodness! They do for others unlike the Wests who are and always will be for themselves.

    • Sal says:

      What? “as low as” Kim and Kanye? Are you serious? They are NOTHING alike. Kim and Kanye promoted the living hell out of their upcoming wedding, interviews, details etc. We never even knew about Brad and Angelina’s wedding until almost a week after it happened. They ALWAYS do exclusive photo releases, I think most people expected they would with the wedding. Releasing a couple of photos is completely, totally, ABSOLUTELY DIFFERENT than promoting the wedding for months. Seriously, anyone who compares to 2 couples is off their rocker.

  14. Sherry says:

    I disagree I love the dress you have to be a certain body type to wear this style and she of course carries it off. She would look amazing in a paper bag. I have mixed feelings about the kids drawing in the dress but on the veil it’s unique Good looking family.

  15. Aura says:

    Please don’t attack me (I really don’t care that much about any of them. they all seem like very nice people etc) but I also preferred his wedding photo with Jennifer Aniston.

    • Janet says:

      I had to google that picture since I never saw it before. It looks very society-pagey to me. Nothing original about it. Brad looks like he was having more fun this time around.

    • Ennie says:

      That time In that wedding, they only released one b&w picture, and still people and tabloids hailed them as some kind of ideal HW marriage (which they were not), so Brad and Angelina probably thought in give a better use and giving money to charity.
      She was much more quirky before, there was no way they (she) were going to have a boring wedding, this is as traditional as they can get! IMO

    • Bea says:

      I really don’t understand why you feel the need to bring any exes into this post. Can’t people leave it alone for one day?

    • Artemis says:

      And they released it because they were in fact being hounded. It was a circus. So I’m sure he enjoyed this wedding way more but in the end, I would have find it more appropriate for the Brange brand if they would stick with the secrecy of it because in the end we did get a lot of details about the ring, the ceremony and now a whole spread.

      • Artemis says:

        I said more appropriate for their brand, I didn’t say anything about my need to devour gossip. At least I’m upfront about it and don’t use ‘charity’ as an excuse to enjoy their PR hustle :)

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Artemis, who wrote: “And they released it because they were in fact being hounded. It was a circus. So I’m sure he enjoyed this wedding way more but in the end, I would have find it more appropriate for the Brange brand if they would stick with the secrecy of it because in the end we did get a lot of details about the ring, the ceremony and now a whole spread.”

        They just can’t win with people, no matter what they do. Last week everyone was screaming for photos because they thought the wedding was fake and wanted proof. They released photos of their choosing. Now people are saying they’re Fame-whores who should have kept everything to themselves.

        What is the problem with them sharing photos from their wedding? I’m happier knowing that money will go to charity rather than some Pap’s pocket.

      • Artemis says:

        Who was saying it was fake though? The wedding was quickly overshadowed by the nude leaks which is arguably the bigger story.

        I honestly thought they wouldn’t release anything. Maybe just one picture of the family together but not a spread. I get the interest of course but if even their wedding isn’t sacred anymore then what is.

        This couple have faced a lot of scrutiny, so what if they didn’t release anything to ‘prove’ something? Like, they’re Brangelina, who the eff cares? They released a statement that should suffice for THEM since it was about them and their children. Releasing a spread to People is a bit much for their brand tbh and detracts the whole ‘we did it for the kids’ thing. Why invite the public then after 9 years of being together culminating in such a secret ceremony?

        I never called them any names.

        How can the money go a pap’s pocket when nobody knew? When their circle clearly wouldn’t betray them?

      • Sal says:

        Their brand has always been about the obligatory release of photos of a watershed moment, ie birth etc, so I really don’t understand why anyone is surprised. This is them. If they DIDN’T do a release, it would not be them!

      • Paige says:

        I wouldn’t say fake but not legal. USA Today, Inside Edition, and other news outlet were trying to say their wedding wasn’t legal because they had a ceremony in France with the California judge. They didn’t think maybe they got a confidential license which means the general public can’t see it and that they had a ceremony in California before the one in France.

    • The Original G says:

      This comparison trolling is so unnecessary.

  16. L says:

    I like the veil. I like that all those drawings were embroidered on by Versace tailor.

    Sure the bodice could fit better, but overall I like the look. It is different without being crazy.

  17. Eleonor says:

    I really like the dress, romantic classic and simple, it’s something I would totally wear on my wedding day. And even if I do not like veils I really find the idea of putting on it children’s draws very moving.

  18. Chris says:

    Brilliant! Must dash out for Hello.
    From what I see so far the dress reflects the intentions that urged the marriage….a fairytale, symbolic thing; the cherry on the cake….and Brad looks bloody gorgeous. Cant wait to see Shiloh’s rig-out.
    Hooray all round. :)

  19. Wallamalooo says:

    She is but I’m with her on this one. Bring on the hate! :D

  20. Frida_K says:

    I love the dress! It’s quirky and unique, just like their beautiful children.


  21. Brin says:

    They wanted this to be a family wedding and I think it’s lovely.

  22. MrsBPitt says:

    It sounds like the wedding was everything they wanted! I think the children’s drawings on the veil was an awesome idea!!!! I love that the kids were included in everything! I read somewhere that the kids even helped write the vows….I hope they put those in the article!! And that kiss!!!!!! sigh….I’m so happy that we will get to see some wedding pics!!!

  23. Sherry says:

    Did someone just comment about Brad’s first wedding pic. Lol. Get with the program. That was sooooo long ago. Haha. Brad and Angie and the family they built are happy in this moment right now. So enjoy!!

  24. Louise177 says:

    I don’t see anything wrong with the dress. It’s simple and nice. Baffled why people assumed something amazing considering Angelina isn’t into fashion and it’s her third wedding. I think the drawings are cute.

    • abby says:


      I love the look. I think it compliments Angie and I love the embroidered veil. Is it a look I would choose for myself? No, simply because I prefer a more streamlined silhouette but that does not mean that I cannot appreciate a different style on another. And Angie said the dress was comfortable – so comfort and beautiful, imo.
      I’ve known many a bride who went for style and often they were uncomfortable and annoyed during their entire “special” day.
      Further, by personalizing the veil with the children’s artwork, it makes the entire event so much more for them as a family. Those kids will always have that memory of seeing their childhood doodles in their mother’s wedding gown. Can you imagine passing that down and the kids in the future looking back as adults and reminiscing about the wedding and the roles they played?
      Yeah, this was about family, not what you or I – fans, blogs, fashionistas or haters – have to say.
      I am glad they had their day and did it their way.

      And while I was hoping they would have kept the photos private (in fact knowing Brad he likely has a trove of wedding pics that we’ll never see), at the same time, the editor of People, Cagle) is the same man who got the twins (and Shi, I think) so there is a relationship. So if People met whatever demands the JPs had then I guess, it’s all good.

      Btw, I read above a poster claiming that Brad complained about the pap invasion of privacy. IIRC Brad’s main issue with the paps has been their hostility, trespassing onto the property, and how close they get to the kids for pics (especially the last part). But he and Angie know the media is part of the package so they give doses without compromising too much.

    • abby says:

      oh and I forgot to say, that kiss!

      If your spouse is kissing you that fervently, who cares what you’re wearing,!

    • pwal says:

      I think it’s especially cute because of the stories Angelina told years ago, mainly about the kids talking to her tiger tattoo and coloring it in.

  25. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I’m sort of surprised that she went with such a bridey bride dress and a veil, though it fits her nicely. I know no one cares about taste or etiquette or appropriateness anymore, and I fully expect all the “it’s their day, whatever they want is fine” remarks, and even agree to some extent, but it’s not her first wedding, they have children and have been living together for years…it just seems sort of girlish and silly. I expected something beautiful and sophisticated, but not quite so My First Wedding Princess Dress.
    Happy for them, though.

  26. Jayna says:

    Oh, my. No comments on veil. It seemed overkill with so much drawing, but that was what they wanted. So no real comment. But when you go for simple, I will stick with Carolyn Bessette’s simple lines of her gown when marrying John F. Kennedy, Jr. This dress is okay. Just everything looks unfinished for some reason in her look. But radiating happiness and joy could have changed those two photos for me instead of some Vogue type expressionless photos in the two shots. What are those poses Angelina is doing for the camera, that solemn look in both the cover and that photo? It looks like some fashion magazine pose for a fake wedding shoot. Disappointing to say the least. If you are going to put your photos in the magazine, at least smile. Two non-smiling shots seem like studied poses, a little contrived. The family photo is cute and adorable.

    I really don’t understand why they did this and it’s a big production. I prefer those two photos released that looked so casual and happy of that couple where the girl had on a cute, but quirky wedding top and skirt and they were outside. What was her name? Anyway, just a couple of shots sharing their happiness that seemed in the moment, not all posy, and not a magazine spread.

  27. Lee says:

    Aaaahh, that’s so sweet – a tattooed wedding gown;-)! We know the bride considers tattoos to be important talismans, so it isn’t really surprising.

    Seriously though, good for them – it looks like it was a lovely day, and completely about their family. It’s nice to see such happiness.

  28. Marigold says:

    I’ll say this-she looks lovely. However, cut off the gown part and I had tank tops in every color that looked exactly like the top of that dress when I was 15.

  29. Lucy2 says:

    I’m a little disappointed they released the photos. It was kind of nice thinking that 2 super famous people managed to keep their wedding private and special for their family only. They’ve done exclusives with People before though, so I’m not surprised.
    I don’t mind the dress so much, but the veil is a bit much for me. It’s a lovely idea, but personally I would have had the kids make the bouquet or something instead.

  30. Pager90 says:

    I Love the dress and Angelina looks stunning. I love what she did with the veil. It’s so sweet.
    She looks amazing. Such a gorgeous woman.

  31. Aussiegal says:

    I love the kiss! He looks like he wants to devour her!

  32. Sal says:

    The dress is not my style but I like that her children were involved with the design. Say what you want about her she is truly a family woman and loves her children more than life itself. And that counts for everything as far as I’m concerned.

  33. Blvd says:

    I adore this dress and it’s meaning behind it. I think she looks gorg!

  34. Trillian says:

    Love the style of the dress, but I would’ve put the drawings on the veil only.

  35. TuesdaysChild says:

    I think she looks beautiful. Unique and very much in keeping with the reason they were getting married in the first place. As for PEOPLE getting the photos, they seem to be fine with giving a little something to get a lot back. A donation to a charity in exchange for the wedding album is something they consider to be a fair trade. I say more power to them.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I think they give PEOPLE exclusives (like the kid pics, etc) in return for PEOPLE showing a little something about their charity work, or something useful. Like when they adopted Pax/Zahara—they got the pictures, but PEOPLE also put a paragraph in there about how to adopt from Ethiopia, and gave a few names of organizations that could help.

  36. Ollyholly says:

    The dress sucks, but GOOD LORD Brad looks sexy. My God.

  37. Ai says:

    They said it all along that their kids wanted this wedding and that they were doing it for their children. When you read the details and see the photos, you can see and tell that they did just that. Probably every aspect of this wedding was influenced by the kids, including the dress style and veil etc etc bravo to them for doing it for their children .

  38. Melibea4ever says:

    Loving the kiss and how he’s holding her face with both hands

  39. daisyfly says:

    This wedding was for the children. It’s what they wanted and so that’s what we see here. To be able to give this kind of creative freedom to their children, while also letting them know how important their wishes are to their parents makes this dress perfect. It was the sum of the children’s designs. Their mother wore it with love and pride. Would that we could say the same about other celebrities.

  40. A. Key says:

    I love the dress, and I love the children’s drawings on the veil even more!
    My heart’s melting really. This is the 21st century it couple and their wedding, not those unlikable Cambridge royal people.

  41. LAK says:

    I’m not ashamed to say that i’m going to buy a copy of hello. Love these two. Love the dress, scribblings and all. Happy sigh.

  42. noway says:

    I think when you have been married three times for her and two times for him, and you have 6 kids this is the perfect family wedding dress. It expresses the love of the kids and her family. Unique but yet still very traditional from the front. I think she looks amazing in it.

    Not surprised with the sold photos seems to be their style. Private but share after the event. Congrats to all, but would have liked a picture of the cake.

  43. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    I would’ve loved the dress if the drawings had been executed better (or not on there at all). Or if the drawings had been on the veil–THAT was a cool idea. Or maybe if they had been done in black. But maybe there’s some sort of method to the drawings, that we obviously wouldn’t know from a ‘far’ away picture.

    All I know is if I was a kid, I would’ve been kinda proud. Kids like seeing that their ‘work’ is important to you–my mom still has all of our pictures/arts and crafts stuff that we made when we were kids–she started putting them in picture frames and now they’re all over the walls of our house.

    But from the front–I LOVE the dress. I love gowns and blouses that have like a built in boob cupper….haha. If I wear a wedding dress, that’s how I want my boobs to look–like they’re on a shelf.

    And omg, she looks freaking GORGEOUS. And very shy/nervous. I wonder if she was–I would’ve been. Despite it being marriage #3–this is her first wedding. She wore hot pants to the last two.

    Lastly–I LOVE the picture of Brad and Angelina kissing–I don’t think that’s their ‘first kiss’, but maybe one after it? Just an awww moment. God, I’m such a Brangeloonie.

  44. Anon says:

    I love the dress, that Brad gave clues what was happening by wearing his kid’s drawing T-Shirt on the way to France …and still, the tabs didn’t pick up on it. Angie and Brad know the fans (and yes, haters too) wanted to see the pictures and what better way.. to make a few bucks for their charity foundation. Also, it eliminates family/friends/associates asking for a wedding photo…just to secretly sell that photo to a tabloid. (CAA, JV) Amazing in hindsight, how much tabloids and magazines just make details up.

    • pwal says:

      I wouldn’t go that far. Brad’s been wearing his kids’ designs for years, mainly on his motorcycle helmets. And he did have one of the kids’ drawings made into a piece of jewelry for Angelina.

      Still… it’s so sweet that she used the kids’ drawings to decorate her gown and veil. It makes me wonder how she decided on which drawings/doodles to use. I would imagine that the kids squealed when they saw the finished product.

  45. ataylor says:

    You know what I love the most? That they didn’t give a teeny tiny rat’s patootie about what anyone (ie: fans, media, fellow celebs) else thought of their wedding plans. They know this is a disaster and they don’t care.

    This is Angelina’s third wedding. The first time she marched down the aisle, she wore a white shirt with the grooms blood on it. With BB she walked down the aisle, I think in leather pants? This is the most traditional get-up we’re gonna get from Jolie, and I don’t think this is even HER idea. White princess dress?!? This is ALL the kids (Pitt couldn’t even remember to pack a bowtie!). They’re the ones that wanted the “White Dress” and the whole she-bang. I like that the veil was all about the drawings, since this WAS for their benefit, not Jolie/Pitt, so an elegant/stylish veil was completely unnecessary. They said before that they were fine never marrying, but the kids really wanted them to, so yep…we get a wedding planned, dress designed & cake baked straight from the kid’s POV.

    Yes, it’s a mess. A huge, butt ugly mess of a dress, but I’ll bet Brad & Angie were proud as heck to be a part of it. No other celeb couple would have made this about their kids. They would have made SURE it was Martha Stewart Weddings/Vogue perfect.

    I love it. These two have shown they are parents FIRST. Everything else is secondary.

  46. aquarius64 says:

    No matter what you think of the dress, these photos will sell like hotcakes. The other celeb weddings this past weekend won’t do have the volume in sales. I think they will outdo the Kimye spread (and that will have the Kardashians seething.)

  47. serena says:

    Sure the dress is not that great, but she looks good even with a potato sack on (though she loves sacks in general lol). And Shiloh was wearing pants, such a cool kid!

  48. Kim1 says:

    As a fan I appreciate them sharing this one time event with us.We have never seen pics of the birthdayparties or holiday events.We have never seens tours of their homes .Sorry my phone is acting up
    I find it interesting that there was little or no outrage with Matthew Mc,Reese,Drew,etc selling their wedding pics.
    This wedding was for their kids
    Im still pissed enews lied about the wedding details.I left a comment on E about the lace dress and cream colored suits but they didnt post it.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I bet someone at E! got fired…..I mean, lol–who’d believe that Shiloh wore a dress? NOT ME. She’s a little dude.

      And I find it SO ironic that two or three other celeb couples got married between when Brad and Angelina got married and when they released these pics, and there was barely a blip on the radar. In fact, I can’t even remember WHO got married.

    • Miss T says:

      Actually, I remember a lot of negative comments on this site when Reese released her wedding pics. People were saying that it was desperate for an A-lister to do that. And lets be honest, plenty of Brangelina fans have criticized other celebrities for flaunting their personal lives while ignoring the fact that Brange do the same.

      Personally, I don’t have a problem with any celebrity sharing wedding photos. But Brangelina are hardly the only ones to be criticized.

  49. tracking says:

    They could have sold one nice pic of the two of them to raise money for charity. Selling pics of the kids and their first married kiss is selling and exposing their private lives. I really don’t understand it, but their choice I suppose.

    • Ennie says:

      Some people are going to always criticise them.
      If they did not released any pic, the wedding did not happen, if they did release one or two or 20, they are fame hungry…
      I would have preferred non just to keep the haters guessing, but they chose to do the spread, and will probably get extra money for charities, which they always donate to, anyway.
      I love the pics (the bigger scanned spread pics are in different sites already) because they show a happy family, from the parents to the smallest child, to their guests.
      I love how “trapped” Brad seems, he seems indeed trapped, LOL, and he does not seem to want to get out.
      Wish them happiness.

    • Jayna says:

      I agree. I’m not against any celebrity couple selling their photos to a magazine, and just because they give theirs to charity is nice, but this shoot is more than just about for the fans. Because if that was the case, they could have done what you said, a few candid type photos sold, released, whatever. Everything seems so posed with those pics of Angie all solemn, and a big layout. They get publicity off of this also. It isn’t so private like everyone is bragging about before when you share every moment, like the kiss, etc.

      I’m no Angie hater. I think she is beautiful and a great humanitarian and a strong actress. I really admire her. I’m just find all of this odd, a huge layout. They play the Hollywood machine like everyone else.

      I loved Olivia Palermo’s casual type candid shots she released, just a couple and more carefree, not like studied poses by the bride and a layout for People.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I’m a fan, so I love the photos–but I get what you’re saying. I am surprised that they released more than a few photos, but I’m not mad at them. I’m nosy (I really am) and I want to see. I saw some (if not all) the pics on Lainey, and it was just so sweet to me. So I’m surprised that they did release intimate photos, but I think they were also trying to drive home the point that it was for their kids….and to show off.

        I go back and forth on celeb photos. On one hand, no one likes it when a celeb spills their guts about everything. On the other–when you get married, you want to show it off to everyone. Same thing with a kid. This is their version–magazines, etc.

        And just as a fan–I do think that Angelina was very excited–hence the intimate pics. I mean, just when she did press for Maleficent, she was talking about how she’d never felt that she would fall in love, truly, never felt like she’d have a whole family. And with her past history being so public–I can see why stuff is a bigger deal to her. I’d wanna show off too.

        It is a big publicity bump, but at least they were *smart* and classy about it–what would’ve been tacky would be for them to release the pics closer to their film premieres.

        And hopefully no one thinks they don’t play the press–that’s like the whole reason Angelina is considered to be the Devil herself. Because she doesn’t pay a publicist to do stuff like this–she approves all of it herself.

        And I think that pic with Angelina was her being nervous. Not so much solemn.

      • Artemis says:

        Agree with Jayna.

        It’s just easier to say ‘fans want to see the Brange and the Brange wants to show us their life’. This charity excuse is such a bad one because they donate to charity anyway.

        They are filthy rich, have extra money because of their fashion campaigns, their wine etc etc. If stans are really trying to front/justify that they absolutely need to sell their personal life (their wedding kiss, their first born, the adoptions) for some charity cash than they prove they cannot see beyond their PR hustle. It’s not just selling the pictures, they can do whatever they want but this ‘private’ argument when we’ve seen the Pitts in very intimate settings and now even their wedding kiss is a bit OTT. Super private and super secret and now we’re welcomed in their world, not even 2 weeks after it happened! It’s not because we don’t see them in photo-ops every 2 seconds that their sharing of TRUE private moments are justified, like…

        I remember all the comments on how the Brange wouldn’t say they were married (we got a release without asking), how they would keep things private (we have a spread) and how they’re above People mag etc in comparison to other celebs (they’re on the normal gossip mags).

        The only reason why people tolerate their Hollywood antics is because they’re the classic gorgeous Hollywood couple. A+++ list forever and ever, in the history books. Let’s stop pretending otherwise :)

        Btw, most celebs don’t announce their exact wedding date but release the info and a subsequent spread afterwards so lets stop with the ‘this is how you do it’ comments because they proved to be just like any other celeb. Just of a much higher status and leverage when it comes to magazine hustling!

        Anyhow, it looked like a fun occasion and having seen all the pictures, I do like the pictures. Especially Shiloh who is truly wild (look at that child’s knees, love it!). The picture where the children are having the giggles because their parents are kissing is the best one.

      • Annie says:

        Oh please Jayna, who cares about Olivia Palermo? Lol, Angelina Jolie is the biggest HW movie actress and she can do whatever she wants on her wedding. She doesn’t follow what other women do, she has originality and does her own thing. And nothing on those pics looked so poised, the pics look spontaneous and relaxed. It seems everyone were just having fun especially the kids.

      • Lucky Charm says:

        I don’t even know who Olivia Palermo is, so that’s not an apples-to-apples comparison.

    • Jessica says:

      All the pics are beautiful.
      How is them donating to charity a lame excuse when they’ve done it before with Shiloh and the twins. I didn’t really see this being any different. @Artemis You act like they don’t really donate at all and use it as a front for publicity, but you can’t tell me one thing that their Jolie-Pitt Foundation has done. I do know celebs have PR but you make it sound like them selling wedding pics is a sham.

      I still don’t think you can compare them and their wedding pics to the average celeb. They didn’t have 2,000 guests, sixteen cakes, a huge runway, or an over the top expensive dress. The whole event was small and low key. Their wedding was almost like a wedding you would go to for an average job. They only had 20 guests, one cake, and hand picked flowers..

      • Jessica says:

        Btw the “this is how you do it” comment comes from them not having a media circus around them while they got married or leading up to the wedding day. How many celebs have you seen do this? Which use not saying a word until after the fact. Celebs do but a lot of them love the build up and publicity that comes with throwing a wedding. You get sick of hearing about the wedding before it even happens or pics are released because it’s overdone. They didn’t do that. We are getting all of this after the fact. Big PR whores would have told the world on August 23, they were getting married not days after the fact. Even Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds sold their wedding pics and they didn’t announce a thing.

      • Jegede says:

        @Jessica –
        Where are the Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds wedding pics?

        I heard they gave wedding food pictures to Martha for free and that was it.

        No outfits, guests, music, (sadly no dress) or anything else

      • Artemis says:


        I didn’t say that their charity was fake. I believe it to be 100% genuine and Jolie was giving away money (1/3 saving money, 1/3 spending and 1/3 for charity) before Pitt.

        I said people use it as a justification for selling personal pictures when they don’t need to. It’s to stop paps from pocketing and controlling the media hounding them when it doesn’t really matter. Their pictures are probably the most wanted in the business so first picture or not, paps are making money off them. They are still hounded so how are they controlling anything? They just know how to move around without being snapped, not because the paps are not interested in their picture.

        Also, Pitt snapped personal pictures of his family and they had spreads featuring the kids too, what was the point of that? Everybody already had seen their kids at that point so it’s not about the ‘first pictures’ anymore.

        Blake Lively’s wedding spread didn’t feature the couple though even though people were looking to it for some reason.

        Lots of celebs have married in secret (Knightly, Craig and Weisz, Bey-Z, Ricci, Washington, Johansson, Cruz and Bardem, Affleck,). I tried to use A listers because there are more people but more B. None of these people talked about their engagement either so yes it can be done.

    • Sal says:

      Their children have always been the centre of their universe and the most important thing in their lives so I’m not surprised at all that photos of the children featured heavily.

    • Máiréad says:

      EDIT: oops, wrong post, wrong place

  50. solanaceae (Nighty) says:

    This is what I’d call a truly unique wedding dress… No other like this one anywhere in the world…. :)

    • HK9 says:

      You’re right. I worked in the bridal industry in the early 90s and nothing much has changed. What most brides think is original really isn’t. The only difference is that they are the ones getting married!! :-) No one else will have this dress~or the guts to carry it off. Good for her.

      • moot says:

        As a wedding photographer, I agree. Most brides think whatever they pick for anything has never been done, but from my POV, a long white dress is still a long white dress. But this one…definitely a dress that will stick out in EVERYONE’S mind after they’ve seen it. Even people who have no eye for dress details (like me) will be able to pick this one out in a stack of white dresses as THE dress that Angelina Jolie married Brad Pitt in.

        In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if this dress were to be auctioned for a lot of money way way way down the road, not unlike an iconic movie dress auctioned for charity.

  51. floretta50 says:

    We all know they give that money to some charity, there are so many children who are refugees from all of the wars presently going on in some countries, children dying and starving that money could not come at a better time. People stop complaining don’t you look at the news, people in America are living it up, some parts of the world they are living under siege and terrible conditions, that money will be put to good use, be happy to do your part and buy the subscriptions, I am. Wouldn’t it be great if more celebrities would use their celebrity and persona to help others.

  52. The Original G says:

    Angie never let her clothes wear her. She wears them.

    I love the dress and she looks healthy and happy. She didn’t make this day about fashion or society, but about her family and her husband. Good for them. Best Wishes!

  53. The Original Mia says:

    This was Angelina’s first formal wedding. I loved her dress and including the kids’ drawings and doodles on the veil and gown. She is all about her children and Brad, so it was perfect for her. I’m very happy for all of them.

  54. Jackson says:

    What I am surprised by….is why so many people seem to have expected some other kind of wedding gown from her? I figured it would be simple and kind of boring but with an elegant line. Which, to me, is just what this gown is. The artwork is a sweet touch and I like how it’s just on the back of the gown. From further away it looks like flowers or a pattern.

  55. tabasco says:

    i LOVE the way the dress was done with the kids’ art. i’m not a huge fan of either of them, but i have to say, that is one of the best wedding dresses ever. meaningful, personal, creative. and it helps to have an atelier’s master tailor on hand to make it work!

  56. db says:

    I really like her gown and the kids’ drawings on it, it’s lovely and charming. They made their wedding totally their own and they don’t give a damn whether I approve or not. I like that.

  57. Ella29 says:

    There are more pictures at Layney, and they are gorgeous!

  58. Ennie says:

    I think every bride wants to be unique in her own way. Nothing contrived about that.
    The “saint” remarks are weird.

  59. pwal says:

    Errr… hasn’t, in recent memory, the wedding been about the bride?

    And the fact that the dress, veil and spirit of the do have the literal and figurative fingerprints of the kids contradicts your contention.

    • moonsoon says:

      Eh, I never ever thought that the wedding is just all about the bride.. wasn’t it supposed to be a union and celebration of love? Which in the Jolie-Pitt’s case is a celebration of love and family.
      If a wedding’s all about the bride, then well goodluck to the marriage.

  60. Junebug says:

    The only thing I think is weird, though maybe it is me, is that in the family photo, all the adopted kids are in the back and all the biological kids are up front with the parents.

  61. Jade says:

    I have no problem with the pics because they have a tendency to donate to charity. You want to judge this as being famewhorey, that’s your problem. There’s a difference between knowing how to navigate PR and being aware that your celeb status comes with certain obligations and being a Kardashian/Courtney Stodden.

    I love Angie and I am very happy for the family but I really have to be honest. Those drawings shouldn’t be on that dress! They are more tolerable on the end of her veil, in a row of 6. The cut of the dress is fine and she looks uh-mazing. I thought she would don a simpler silhouette like Carolyn K but I was pleasantly surprised she went the traditional gown and veil route. Until I saw the back. I know, I know she doesn’t care about my opinion but I just gotta say it out heh.

    Regardless, be happy Brangelina…wish you patience, love and romance in the marriage, a lifetime of support and happiness for each other.

    • Paige says:

      Great Comment. Hey, if you think they are a PR couple that’s your business but I don’t like how people think them donating money to charity is just a PR front, such as them donating their wedding pics to charity just being a PR front. Why can’t it be both? It gets them publicity and they get to help someone, but no it’s only for their “brand”, which puts a negative view on them helping someone.

      • Jade says:

        Thanks Paige, but when I mentioned PR, I wasn’t referring to their charity donation. I was referring to their inclination to share only a bit of their lives with paps/mags instead of revealing every aspect or going the other extreme of alienating all publicity. Both of them recognise that they are public figures and that sometimes they need to indulge the press or fans. It just means they and some celebs like them are PR savvy, and I don’t consider this famewhoring. So I find it ok that they published the pics. Separately, if they do donate the proceeds to charity that would be great.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      I’m sure it has NOTHING to do with who’s adopted or not. In most pictures, it’s tallest in the back and shortest in the front, that way you can see everyone. Pretty soon, it’ll be Shiloh in the back and Zahara in front, just because she’s growing so tall.

  62. Nene says:

    I’m kinda disappointed about the wedding dress but it’s hardly news that AJ isn’t a fashionista.

    I certainly believe their children took up to 70% of the inspiration for the nuptials. I mean, with 3 or so weddings between AJ and Brad, it’s only appropriate for this one to be mainly about the children.

    All in all, it was a family oriented wedding which will remain a truly pleasant memory for their kids even as adults because their parents chose to involve them instead of making it totally about themselves.

  63. ToodySezHey says:


    Bitter, party of one.

    Speaking of which, anyone looking for a good laugh needs to trot on over to Female First.

    That place has been on meltdown since the wedding announcement. The “facts” I’ve learned since visiting the Brangelina forum are:

    Apparently Brange don’t own Chateau Mirval (therefore the marriage isn’t legit)

    Brange got married on French soil by an American judge…thus the marriage isn’t real. These fools even took the time to look up CA marriage laws pertaining to a confidential license! Apparently you do have to marry in CA…but these simpletons can’t put 2 and 2 together…more than likely Brange had a courthouse wedding, then had the actual ceremony with the same judge in France so they could marry in their home. The thing I want to know is how long they have actually been married, but we’ll never know.

    Also, the first thing the stans said we’re “where are the wedding pictures if they got married????”

    Then when the photos dropped last night it was all “This is fake and staged! !!!!”

    That site is hilarious. ..and scary as hell. Brangeloonies and Annistans are both pathetic…but a group of people possessed with a couple who broke up 10 years ago (who had their last crumb hinged to the fact that Brad hadn’t and “would never” marry Angelina) take the damn (wedding) cake!

    • Máiréad says:

      Funnily enough the Female Fister community isn’t usually my first port-of-call when it comes to the finer points of French bureaucracy , but it looks like I’ll have to rethink that. :lol:

    • Wallamalooo says:

      To be fair though (never been to FF but have heard stuff), this site isn’t much better (as regards to the loonies of either stripe but esp. Brangeloonies) – you only have to say one little thing that may be construed as negative and either you get flamed or your comments mysteriously don’t post). If you can read this it means one got through. All sides need to calm the eff down if you ask me (which, I know, you didn’t :D )

      • Máiréad says:

        *whispers: You got through. Shuuush, say nathin’ ;)

      • Paige says:

        I can definitely tell you’ve never been on FF. The things they say about Angelina, Brad, and their children are horrible. The Brangeloonies on here can’t even compare.

      • notasugarhere says:

        @Wallamalooo. I’ve made the mistake of wandering into FF to see the fuss. That place is nothing like CB. FF is filled with, for lack of a better phrase, the Seriously Unhinged.

        Here, for the most part, there is polite and logical discussion on a variety of topics.

      • Máiréad says:

        Well, speaking as a staunch member of the Brangelunatic Fringe who participated in the epic humdinger rows back in the days of Lola, Snowblood et al, I feel qualified to say that no matter how mental things got here, we never wrote nasty racist bile about a toddler or prayed for the imminent death of JA, things which I saw myself over there.

      • Sal says:

        I think some posters get butthurt and overly-defensive when someone calls them out on BS they’ve written. It doesn’t mean posters are ‘attacking’ them, if they see it like that, that’s their problem. Many pro Brangelina posters don’t have their posts go through either. In fact, I’ve seen polite pro-Brrangelina posts removed yet horrible nasty anti-Brangelina posts stay. And sorry, but to be fair you are delusional or as you said, have no idea what is posted on FF, if you truly, TRULY think this site is as bad. Over there Angelina is accused of running a pedophile drug ring. They wished she would crash her plane and kill herself and the twins. They wished she would die an agonising death when pregnant with Shiloh and bleed to death. They hoped Zahara had AIDS, and called her monkey, mud etc. They wished (during Angelina’s In The Land of Blood and Honey debut) that Angelina AND HER CHILDREN would be raped. I could go on and on and on and on. Please, don’t compare these 2 sites when you clearly have never been to FF and are ignorant about what is said there. Do….not…..EVER compare Angeloonies to Anistonloonies (am I ok to say that, Virgilia?). Do not EVER!! Anistonloons are the most sickest, dangerous and deranged group out, even rivalling Charles Manson fans.

  64. GiGi says:

    OMG. Lainey has the pics and I swear to God, I teared up a little. It looks like it was a magical moment for their family!

  65. Jesme says:

    I absolutely adore everything about it. Angelina is gorgeous as usual…but then she could wear a white pillowcase and look gorgeous IMO…and Brad….sigh…he is so damn hot , and his pride in his family is showing all over his face.. They both radiate happiness and serenity in my opinion..,and I am thrilled and I never get excited over celebrity weddings….they totally managed to make this their day …unique, meaningful and all about them and their family.
    That kiss ! And the kids giggling about it is the icing on the cake for me !

  66. Jesme says:

    Gigi….I teardrop up as well…strange, I don’t even know them and I got teary eyed !
    I think I connect with them on a certain level being an adoptive parent …I love this family and wish them a lifetime of happiness .

  67. ToodySezHey says:

    Dude…I just saw the pics St Lainey. ..

    I challenge anyone, ANYONE, to see those pics and not smile!

    I swear my inner Brangeloonie has been activated because all I could do was smile and sigh at those pics.

    Brad, the kids, Angelina. .they are all beaming, they are so happy!

    It must have been a love my wedding. And Zahara is gorgeous in the photos.

    Also, lmao @ E!

    Linen suits for the boys? Shiloh in a dress? ROFL! I can’t wait til they get called out for completely making shit up.

  68. Suzy from Ontario says:

    I think she looked absolutely gorgeous and I think it’s lovely the way they made so much effort to include the kids and really make them part of the wedding. So many people almost forget the kids and it has to be all about them and impressing everyone. I think it shows that they really care about what’s important to them and their children are definitely front and centre. Good for them!

  69. Annie says:

    Love Angie’s dress. Their wedding is perfect, its simple and intimate and yet it looks grand. They all looks so happy especially the kids.

    It’s not surprising they sold the pics to People and Hello, it was Angie and Brad who started the trend, first when Angie became preggy with Shiloh and then Shiloh’s first baby pics. Everyone else followed them. The money for sure will go to their foundation for their charities. I think they also know they owe it to their fans to share momentous events in their lives such as their wedding pics, thats how considerate they are.

  70. anna says:

    If a couple after 9 years and 6 kids can’t wed because THEY want to – and not because “their kids want it” then they shouldn’t wed. Likewise, the kids shouldn’t be the ones making the damn vows – the kids can’t write your vows to each other – that’s not logical. It’s one of those things they think sounds cute & that the baby-hungry public/media laps up, but when you consider it is actually stupid. I mean a marriage is about two adults pledging/promising to one another – so HAS to be their own words and no one else’s.
    I suspect children will decide when they will divorce then?

    • Lucky Charm says:

      Well, I’m pretty sure that they got married because THEY DID want to. No matter how much your kids may want it, if you don’t want to get married then you won’t get married. And considering that their legal wedding would have to be done in front of the judge in California, this was just the ceremony with the family, so why not let the kids be involved with it?

  71. Ally.M says:

    The drawings on the wedding dress was a lovely way to involve the children. Not sure about the mags – just hope they manage to avoid the Hello Magazine wedding pics jinx.

  72. Lucky Charm says:

    I haven’t read the comments yet, but I just had to say this first: Haha to E! because their “exclusive sources” got it wrong, AGAIN. That doesn’t look like Brad and the boys are wearing matching cream color linen suits. Shiloh’s not in a dress (but did we really expect her to be?) and Vivienne wore one from her closet. What happened to the girls all wearing custom made dresses for the wedding?

  73. MickeyM says:

    Angie looks beautiful. They are my favorite celebrity couple. Brangelina forever!

  74. Melissa says:

    The pictures are beautiful and everyone looks so happy, yet, for some weird reason, I wish they would have kept it private and not released the images…. And people keep saying they owe it to their fans to publish the pictures? Um, nope! Sorry but they don’t owe anybody anything.

    • Annie says:

      I think you are forgetting that Brad & Angie are two of the biggest movie stars in the world, they are public people, they know they have millions of fans, they know they should share something for their fans, such important events in their lives. That’s how they reciprocate the fans who pay to see their movies.

      But in your case, if you get married you don’t owe anything because you are a nobody! No one would even want to see your wedding pics.

      • Melissa says:

        I’m a nobody? Gee, thanks! I so didn’t know that and needed to be remind of it by someone the likes of you. Just because I don’t agree with the release of the images does not mean you get to be insulting of my opinion, by all means feel free to say you don’t agree but to add further by saying that just shows the sad little person that you are and reminds me of why I almost never post here, some very clever people here whose comments make me laugh, you obviously don’t belong in that category as you can’t seem to understand the difference between defending your opinion and insulting those who don’t agree with you, I refuse to waste more time on you… And yes, had they not released the pictures I would still go watch their films, I expect nothing more from actors that a good film.

      • Sal says:

        Melissa I think you took Annie’s post the wrong way and too personal.

      • KellieBell says:

        Annie, I’d rather go to one of my “nobody” friends wedding, than go see Brangelina and their tacky wedding gown with all the silly kid pics scribbled on it.

      • Sal says:

        Lets just hope you never become a mother KellieBell if that’s your attitude to childrens drawings. Why don’t you just STFU and go away. No one cares about your jealousy.

    • lucy2 says:

      That’s how I feel about it too. It all looks lovely and I’m sure they’re all so happy, but if it were me, I would have elected to keep the photos private. If I wanted to share something with the fans (no celebrity is obligated to do that), I’d maybe just release one photo. Having a spread over 2 magazines is more than I would feel comfortable sharing, especially for a wedding that was so private and intimate, and that they managed to keep so secret.
      As for the money angle of it – I think it’s great they will (most likely) donate the proceeds to charity, but I feel like there are other ways to give, and still keep that family event private. They both have the ability to make millions with a quick ad campaign – hasn’t Brad done a few commercials in Japan? If I had the ability to earn like that, I’d do 1 or 2 of those and donate that money, and keep my wedding photos private.
      To each their own, and I’ll never know what it’s like to have that sort of fame, but I feel like if I did I’d guard every ounce of privacy I could get.

    • Máiréad says:

      Meh – many people like looking at wedding photos, even if they’re strangers to them, if my workmates and neighbours are anything to go by.

  75. Annie says:

    Brad and Angie don’t need to have a classy elegant wedding that some posters want, as Angie said they want an intimate and relaxed wedding with their kids playing a big part. Their wedding was not intended to please other people or their guests, it was mainly for their kids and their closest family. So there was no need for Angie to wear an elegant or spectacular expensive dress but rather she wanted something that has meaning to her and her family.

    I suppose people can expect a more lavish or elegant classy wedding from Clooney and Aniston, especially these two have no kids to consider on their wedding but only their friends and guests.

  76. kri says:

    They had a small wedding at their family home, and their kids had alot of say in it, apparently. No one was running around screaming and crying about wedding Spanx, seating arrangements, gold toilets or the accurate trajectory for jumping over your bride while the photog does the cover picture. They did this their way, and to me that’s how it should be done. For some reason, when I first saw the dress, I laughed and maybe perhaps got teary-eyed for a nano-sec. I don’t know what is happening..I might be turning..human!! Good luck, B&A. They have been thru lots in 10 years-they deserve to be happy.

  77. Louise says:

    The bust on the dress is the same as Marilyn Monroe’s to Arthur Miller. Sad that I know this by one glance, but I nearly had it for my wedding.

  78. Lotta says:

    I love the dress and think she looks great in it. Love the bust and the fabric and how it falls. Also like the drawings, the kids, and Brad. All is good! :-)

  79. Bubulle says:

    I’ve got the impression they only get married for the kids not for themselves.

  80. Kim1 says:

    I love the pics in Hello Magazine you can feel the love,joy and the happiness,its palpable.
    Also I love the fact that people who dont like them are so pressed.
    Oh and Brad looks HOT in new pics in Malta despite the hat
    Fine at 50

  81. TC says:

    LOVE the dress and the incorporation of the children’s artwork on it. Definitely makes it more special and meaningful. Very original concept….very Brad and Angie. The kids will always have a wonderful memory of this day (and the fun leading up to it). Looking forward to the photos in People and Hello! Magazine.
    Hello! Magazine has the better cover though.

  82. Lydia Says says:

    This wedding makes me so happy. This wedding was truly a family affair throughout . I love the dress for its simplicity, which suits her very well. Besides, it makes an excellent canvas for the art. I think she looks gorgeous and the idea of incorporating her kids drawings in her veil is really sweet! The drawings on the dress and veil are so creative , unique and tasteful .The veil was genius; it’s an instant family heirloom. I wish them and their children much happiness.

  83. JenniferJustice says:

    It’s their life and their choice of style. They can do whatever they want. I am tired of hearing about how they did this for the kids, though. They did it NOW to promote movies they both having coming out. And I find it odd that nobody defers to Brad’s initial stance on not getting married until all people have the right to marry regardless of gender preference. If it were anybody but Brad who made that statement and didn’t follow through with it, people would be all over them, but because it’s Brange, they’re not only forgiven, but the statement is all but forgotten. What gives?

    • Kim1 says:

      So they got married in August to promote a movie that comes out in November or December.Not very smart this story will be old news by then.
      In 2006 Brad said they would consider getting married when all people are allowed to marry the person they want to marry.There are 22 states that allow same sex marriage.Brad never said we wont get married until every state legalizes same sex marriage.Same sex marriage is not legal in every state but any same sex couple can travel to one of those sites and get legally married.Their marriage will be recognized by govt in terms of estate taxes,IRS,etc

    • Paige says:

      If they did it because they both have movies coming out, how come they didn’t do it years ago? They both had movies coming out, potential Oscar buzz, and nominations at the 2009 Oscars. They have had so many opportunities to marry over the years if you’re right. I’ve lost count of how many times, they’ve said the kids wanted mommy and daddy married. Their kids come first before strangers, even if they said they wouldn’t get married until everyone else could.

    • Sal says:

      That is a stupid argument. There is ALWAYS a movie or promo or SOMEthing. Take that line they’d never get married or do anything. They would wait until 80 or 90 when they’ve retired. Saying it is about movies is stupid and absolutely immature. Also, many people elsewhere, mostly silly little children, drag up the gay argument. Luckily the calibre of posters here usually has an IQ about 70, hence why you won’t see something as trivial, petty and as ridiculous as that mentioned here as much. Despite the fact that the gay community came out and CONGRATULATED them for the marriage, as they acknowledge they have DONE ENOUGH for gay rights. Brad made an off-the-cuff statement probably to shut reporters up who were continuing to ask him. He did NOT make a ‘promise’. Why hold them to something which wasn’t even a promise? Have you never changed YOUR mind? Come on, act like an adult. Also, life changes. Circumstances change. In addition to the children, Angelina has had health scares. Things like that change your perspective. If you are mature you will understand that. You, your family and your health come first. Not an off-the-cuff quip made 5 years ago. Seriously, get real.

  84. Nibbi says:

    i think the drawings as embroidery detail is super interesting, fun, lovely, and sweet, and even kinda gives it that unique edgy kind jolie thing. i diiiig and am so glad the photos are out, yaaay !

  85. Anon says:

    I bet those JP kids were over the moon to see their drawings on mom’s dress and veil. Angelina looked gorgeous in her lovely dress. And Mr. Pitt …that kiss. One cannot say that Brad, Angelina and their big family does not have love…loads of it. Congrats to the Jolie-Pitts! Beautiful family!

  86. Nicole says:

    World’s most beautiful family.

  87. Jayna says:

    I’m not jealous at all. I think Angie is an amazing mother and human being and beautiful.

    I went and looked at the full spread on Lainey Gossip. It is overkill. Two big magazines, full spread features in both two magazines. The kiss. I don’t know. They aren’t the princess and prince of the U.S. I just find it is overdone and “not just for the fans.” Charity? They can pour all they want into charity from their mega millions from commercials. So stop with the it’s” only” for charity and us, the common people, the subjects. I love that they donate, but that doesn’t whitewash how much this seems like they are some royalty and also using this moment for publicity also with deals with two mags.

    There’s nothing per se wrong with this. Personally, I find it overdone. Several photos shot of them and their family, one mag, I get. All the grief everyone else gets for their weddings and cruel remarks, and no one considers this over the top. If this was George and he did two magazines, full coverage, and donated it to charity even, everyone one here except like two people, would be blasting him for using it as a ruse for publicity, blah, blah. I just find this overdone.

    I am genuinely happy for them, and seeing her gown full length it’s pretty on her. They are a great looking family. Other than that, the overkill on this leaves me meh, which is odd for me. I am always mushy and emotional about things. I felt more moved for them until the blasting of them with their wedding spread all over two mags.

    I don’t need any defending of this. I get why many loved it all. It’s just how “I” feel. I love them as a family and couple and as people. So don’t hit me with I’m jealous.

    • Xantha says:

      How is this over the top? The wedding itself was small with no other celebrities and it doesn’t seem like they spent a ton of money for this occasion. There was no “week before the wedding” hype, they were able to marry without the press finding out, and now that official pictures have been released, things will start to calm back down. For a couple of their stature this is downright lowkey and everything was done on their terms.

      I don’t think you’re jealous but I do think some people might be mad because they were SO SURE that Brad and Angelina would never marry. I think the reality that this wedding actually happened is too much for some of them.

      • Jayna says:

        I never said the wedding was over the top. Very small and intimate is my thing and focused on one another and not stressed over some wedding to impress. So I thought their wedding was sweet. I was talking about the magazine coverage they did. I didn’t like that photo of her on the cover. It seemed contrived. I don’t even think she looks all that good in that cover. Angie is beautiful but on that — never mind. I’ve said it on here already. There’s nothing to debate. I just stated how I felt, and others felt differently We all posted our opinions and life goes on. LOL.

    • andypandy says:

      I kinna get what you saying. I like Brad & Angie and think many people do , what I think really turns people off of is the hyperbole, extreme fawning .fandomness and double standards of some the Brangeloonies . For instance if any one else had done this they would have been accused of being fame whores using kids as props (that’s a common one on this site ) Blah Blah And people stating as an indisputable FACT that they are only doing this to donate proceeds to charity when this has not been stated or confirmed by anyone
      One poster upthread actually said they are the ONLY celebs who would have made their wedding about their kids …Really they are the only decent parents in ALL of Hollywood???
      I think Angie is beautiful Brad and kids look happy and they will probably donate some proceeds to charity that’s is all … But this worshipping it really comes off as slightly unhinged time to exit this thread

    • Paige says:

      So I guess their baby photos were overkill too because they were done exactly the same way. Actually the two spreads are the same pics with exception of the cover and a few pics.. It isn’t two completely different magazInes. The only difference is the cover and that one is in the U.k. and one in the U.S. The twins and Shiloh pics were released the same way. Btw, sharing a wedding kiss doesn’t make you royalty LOL. I can’t count how many celebs have shared their wedding kiss in a magazine. Many have already this year, alone.

    • Máiréad says:

      The magazines are owned by the same company: People for the US market and Hello! for Europoe/ Anglophile world. And society weddings are Hello’s bread and butter. You want to see the wedding of Lady Georgina Tatiana Hortense Forstrup-Forstrup Bluffsworthy getting to Lt. Col. Otto Von Vorsprungdurchtechnik? Hello is your only man. ;)

    • Jade says:

      Jayna, I love Brangelina (well, more of Angie) but I get what you are saying about the mag spread. Maybe they were in a generous mood. I don’t find your comments vindictive or unreasonable. I disagree with some but overall I think your feelings about this are fair.

  88. Kim1 says:

    I forgot to add unlike Brad,Kristen Bell and Dax Shepherd said they wouldnt get married until Gay marriage was legal.They got married a year or two ago.Where was the outrage when they broke a promise they both made.BTW Angie never .said anything about gay marriage so stop saying,”They said or they promised not to get married

  89. Luciana says:

    Beautiful bride! Just lovely and unique!

  90. Sam H x says:

    She looked absolutely stunning, I think it’s very sweet, sentimental that the kids drawings were incorporated into the dress and were actively involved in the ceremony. I saw the pictures over on Lainey just now I’m struck at the simplicity of the ceremony! I can’t lie but the pictures show how much warmth, love and happiness there is between their family. It was very sweet to read Brad engraved something in the chapel to honour his missus’ mother. The photos of the kids giggling whilst mum and dad kiss are absolutely adorable!! I wish their family continued love, health and happiness in the world.

  91. Sara says:

    Can these 2 please use the money and then some to send a drop of supplies over West Africa complete with food and medical supplies so they can fight thi ebola please. It is getting out of control and this may be another case of celebrities having it bail out victims and society from a natural disaster.

  92. Dany says:

    i don´t like the dress. It´s pretty, but not my taste. The drawings are cute, but on a wedding dress?

    Are the drawings only on the veil? In some shots it looks as if they are only on the veil, but the cover photo shows black scrawl bottom right

  93. gooner says:

    Personally not a big fan of the dress. I dunno, it kind of looks cheap? Like something even I could afford haha. But whatevs, it’s her choice. The veil is beautiful and so touching to incorporate the children in such a way. I hope it becomes a family heirloom, maybe with the girls wearing it at their own weddings in the future.

    Saw other photos on Lainey and the wider shot of their first kiss is even better than the one on the cover, you can see the kids smiling and laughing in it. Very sweet.

  94. mar says:

    I LOVE the whole concept. Sure the dress is not the ideal wedding dress, but it not supposed to be. It was meant for the family to enjoy, and you can see it is very genuine.
    Very unique , just like them!

  95. LoisLane says:

    At first i had mixed feelings about the cove, but then i saw the pics at Lainey’s and good Lord are they precious! This is partly for charities for sure but hell the Jolie-Pitts are beautiful they know it and they are showing us just how awesome they are. Yes Brad loves the so-call homewrecker. He married her and looks absolutely happy to be trapped. Angie is there to stay people.
    Besides give it a rest please, most people would sell their wedding pics too if they were given millions, i know i would why not? This is like christmas in Brangelinaland. Happy Brangelismas to my fellows Brangeloonies ;)

    • norah says:

      imagine calling someone else a “homewrecker ” on one side and praising the wedding photos on the other. and calling brad “trapped” really – either you should retire your brangeloonie membership assuming you actually were one in the first place.

  96. Máiréad says:

    It’s not a creamy-beige sack! 8O

    I thnk it would’ve photographed better if the photographer left off the flash or it was ma of raw silk to something. It is very girlie, but you can be sure it had to pass muster by Empress Z and Viv and only the girliest would do!

    I like the idea of the drawings and printed/painted details on a wedding dress and think it gives it a personal edge that will make this stand out.

  97. Anna S. says:

    While I don’t love satin in general, it looks like a Disney princess dress. It seems to me that the entire thing was about the kids anyway, which makes it perfectly understandable that this is the dress she’d wear. Plus, the sheer magnitude of their collective hotness just means that no matter what either of them wore, they would look amazing. Congratulations to the happy couple!

  98. Mischa Jane says:

    I think Angelina looks very nice and exactly how she wanted to look on her wedding day. I don’t think she gives any thought to naysayers or cares if you hate her dress and veil. She gives zero fuks.

  99. lisa2 says:

    Just enjoyed the pictures

    I think it is a very beautiful thing for children to witness the commitment that their parents make to each other. I know the way they had their family first is not traditional. But for most of us we never see our parents marriage outside pictures. We love to hear stories. But this was a family thing and it looked beautiful. I loved the picture of the children standing with their parents while they said their vows.. the giggling when they kissed.

    You don’t have to like them to appreciate how they made this wedding about them and their children. This was Angie’s first wedding in a traditional way. I liked the veil and what it meant to them. The children looked very happy. The pictures of them hugging their mother was just sweet.

    I’m so happy they are married and about to embark on the next journey of their lives. Nothing but good thoughts for them and their children.

    • Chris says:

      A very lovely comment Lisa2
      Who can know what little insecurities or even fears lurk in a child’s mind? Privilege can’t shield them from sad tales in literature, grim tales in movies…….
      It’s just so delightful to see these kids getting a wish granted, and to feel as well that B&A were every bit as invested in their vows and
      declarations, that this wasn’t just staged to reassure the children. All very moving.
      (O dear, I can tell this rosy mist that is wafting around my castle retreat is not letting go yet!)

  100. Ennie says:

    I bet you and I could do it too, donating or “saving the world” is not their sole responsibility

  101. Hissyfit says:

    I was honestly expecting a sack dress and then I saw the photo – I am absolutely in love with her wedding dress! It’s very old school glamour. Very Audrey Hepburn. Angelina looks gorgeous! I don’t like that veil doodles, it’s a cute idea but it’s too much. Brad looks really hot here!

    That kiss photo though, it’s so hot! It’s like he wants to eat her face! I saw those photos at Lainey’s. The one where Pax and Knox gave her a hug is so beautiful. And the one where Maddox and Shiloh were giggling was super cute.

    I guess this wedding photos came out perfectly – it’s going to distract the media from “The Frapenning” which is good.

  102. drea says:

    I like that Angelina gives no f-cks about getting ragged on by the fashionistas for that dress. Many people will think the squiggly sketches are ugly but the kids will always know that their mother, just about the most famous actress in the world, valued their input far more than a traditionally picture-perfect wedding gown. It might just be one of the sweetest things I’ve seen.

    Apparently, this kind of thing is something they really do as a family. I remember Brad had Maddox’s little gun sketch turned into a pendant for Angelina and he’s worn a T-shirt the kids have drawn on. It doesn’t work for everyone, but it works for them.

  103. G00p says:

    I don’t hate the drawings on the dress, I just think they could have been done better. They look sort of slapped on, not placed, and it could have been more wow. If you’re going to do it, do it. I don’t get the front being plain with the back being so zany. Not a huge fan of the nightgown silk thing, either. Not a hater, just into fashion.

  104. Janet says:

    If I look at those photos on Lainey’s site one more time I am going to awwww myself to death. That photo of Pax hugging his mommy is precious.

  105. emma says:

    one of the shots of her veil ( on lainey?) says buttock fartock. hahhaha

  106. Lucky Charm says:

    It looks like her brother WAS there. There was speculation earlier that because he wasn’t mentioned (Brad’s family was) as a guest, and that he was at the Emmy’s ceremony with his dad, meant he didn’t go to the wedding.

  107. kendra says:

    Mrs. Brad Pitt is looking mighty fine. The pictures are lovely. So happy for the Jolie-Pitt family.

  108. KateBush says:

    I’m not liking the whole look either.
    I think the kids must have decided on the dress as well as it’s a typical Disney princess bride look. I’m surprised they didn’t go for tulle tho, if I was a kid I would!

    The veil is pretty horrid, I like the idea and it’s a beautiful way to include the kids in the wedding but I think it would have been amazing in silver embroidery.

  109. maggie says:

    Nice that the kids had an input but I think the whole thing is a bit weird. Kids writing the vows! Please loonies don’t call me a hater It’s simply an opinion. She looks too old for the princess bride look.

  110. Flower says:

    Its summer in France and its a lovely summery gown,the kids probably had input into the choice as well, love the veil how wonderful that the kids were truly involved in every aspect not just on the sidelines after all the wedding was for them, Brad and Angie would have been happy to carry on as usual if the kids hadn’t been pressing them into tying the knot. It was the kids wedding and I bet they all had a ball. Wonderful memories for them all.

  111. Maritza says:

    The dress is not that bad but the graffiti veil is ridiculous. Is that cover photoshopped? Her hand looks so elongated and gigantic!

  112. Janet says:

    The tabloids come out tomorrow and it’s going to be fun watching how they deal with all this. I have a feeling the tabloid editors are so enraged at having been blindsided by the wedding that they will either 1) try to ignore it altogether, or 2) write some really vicious, snarky stories about it, or 3) bury it in a sideline and do a cover story on how Jennifer is blissfully pregnant and planning her wedding to Justin next week.

  113. KellieBell says:

    Putting kids artwork on the wedding gown is just more promotion of their kids. Its getting old. Actually it got old a long time ago. We know they have kids and a family. Many people do. We know they’ve adopted. Many people do. Now they need to go get over themselves.

    • rudy says:

      I totally disagree with you. Totally and Completely.

      Putting the art on the dress is wonderful. Who cares if it is ‘old’.

      And Angie and Brad are supposed to get OVER their kids? Are you serious??

      I will never ever get over my girl. And so what if kids are adopted? My girl is adopted, that means I should love her less or more or the same???

      Angie and Brad definitely spoil those kids. Good for them. I bet you the Jolie-Pitt children turn out a helluva lot more respectful that Jaden and Willow, who are also spoiled, but emotionally neglected. Angie and Brad live for their kids. I love it. They also have major major careers. And I am sure an army of help. good for them.

    • Ennie says:

      so they adopted the kids and now they need to hide them or something?

  114. rudy says:

    Who cares about the dress.
    They did it. Brad and Angie. They got married, they did it privately, they’re selling the photos. THere is NO reason any celebrity HAS to spill all of their lives out on the unassuming public. You can be private if you want to be.

    Congrats to Angie and Brad on the marriage! May they have many happy years together.

    Those kids must be thrilled.

  115. coif says:

    All I can see is that TALON she has for a hand

  116. floretta50 says:

    The comments on the Brad and Angie wedding on Daily Mail has gone viral, don’t enjoy them when they are too long I think it’s way past a thousand and counting. Read that Hello magazine is already out in the UK, anybody knows when People will print theirs for the US?

  117. Aurora says:

    Come on, how can you NOT love a dress that has “BUTTOCK FUTTOCK” sewn on it? :D The sentiment was unexpected and sweet – she wore something a little traditional only a little — askew :D – which is what I want from her. No America’s princess for you all!

    They don’t have to prove anything to anybody – they made the day all about what THEY (especially the kids!) enjoyed and loved. She looks happy, the kids look thrilled and you only have to look at the KISS to see that they are in love!

    Screw all the cynics, lovely couple, lovely family and I wish them many years of happiness together.

  118. allheavens says:

    My late mother would ave ADORED this gown and wedding. She absolutely loved Brad and Angelina.

    I remember when my mother was ill, she would send me out to get magazines but they had to have an article featuring one or both of them.

    They look happy, the rest of the family looks happy, so what’s the problem?

  119. Mika says:

    I like the dress…. i really like the dress and i am so happy for them.
    Shiloh, you go girl!

  120. Angie says:

    I love her but I kinda like that the dress is hideous. lol It ENDEARS her even more to me for some reason – esp the kid’s drawings. i can’t imagine a Bridezilla obsessed with wedding perfection wearing that dress. I think she just doesn’t CARE how people will judge it. The dress was designed by someone she cares about and it incorporated her kids drawings. THOSE are the things she cares about. Go AJ!!

    • KellieBell says:

      Just because someone doesn’t want pics scribbled all over their gown doesn’t make them a “bridezilla”. Some people want to do things in a low key way and not grabbing attention. This wedding gown just screams “LOOK AT ME. LOOK HOW DIFFERENT I AM. LOOK, LOOK, LOOK!!!!!!!”

      Yes, we see Angelina. We see your gown with the silly pics scribbled on it. Now shut up and go away.

      • Ennie says:

        I think the dress is coherent with her personality. She has tattoos that are symbolic to her, she had never had a conventional wedding, she has children who most probably do art projects.
        So, a good idea was to add the meaningful (for them) creation of their children in her wedding dress as a symbol of what their family is.
        She does not seem to care for perfection in her style, he probably knew she would be criticized. Hey even if her dress were not decorated, I bet she or her dress would be criticized anyway!! Even her hands have been criticized, like if she can go and change them. SMH
        I think the drawings were sweet.

        You chose to come on here. Why don’t YOU shut up and go away. No one cares what you have to say.

    The dress isn’t decorated, the kids drew/colored on her veil, which was a cute way to include them in the ceremony. Clearly this was a family thing, and a couple of days later they were both back at work. They got married on a family vacay.

    I’m glad for them to have kept it private, and make it a family affair- but I DO question the concept of marrying FOR the kids. It’s still their business, just not MY understanding of marriage. With their concept, the decorated dress makes sense, although I personally don’t like it. Yet I’m glad it’s white, and not the ‘gothic’ black.

    Putting your kids art work on your veil is so incredibly cringe worthy. I would have been mortified if my mom put my artwork from childhood on her veil when she got married.

    I think they’re so cute. They’re happy, I love seeing happy people. And when I saw the dress I thought, “That is so something Angelina would come up with”, so that her children are involved in every aspect. They’re good parents. I get a warm feeling of energy with these 8 cuties.

    @Andrea1 “money made from the sale of these pictures IS going to be given to charity”
    You are stating this as A Fact when its really its an assumption we’ve made that’s in keeping with Brad and Angies charitable style but nowhere is this specifically stated in either of these’ articles that this is the case (though my gut says more than likely this is what they will do )

  126. Tanguerita says:

    agree. they are rich enough to give money to charity without getting anything in return. But those two are just like everyone else in Hollywood – they have movies to sell, Oscars to hustle for. So, it’s business as usual, sell yourself to the highest bidder

    Have you actually seen what their foundation does, though? It’s a way of donating money to themselves that comes off publicly as philanthropic. For one thing, it primarily funds more (extremely short and highly publicized) Angelina-as-white-savior-in-Africa trips, which then go on to reap her more publicity and shoot up their stock. They’ve got the game on lock.
    It’s also a tax haven, any money put into there isn’t taxed. People actually buying that these two don’t play the game like pros are so naive. They are worth millions upon millions of dollars, they have more than enough to donate to charity and be private about their own lives but they don’t want to be private, how people can’t understand that is beyond me.

  128. Lucinda says:

    1) There is a demand for the photos so why not sell them to raise money for charity? We don’t know for certain that is what is happening but it is how they have handled things like this is the past. To not sell the photos is a missed opportunity to do good.

    2) Yes, the charity is a tax shelter as well. So what? Why wouldn’t they be smart about their money. They are still giving money away. It saves them paying some taxes but not as much as they are giving up. Again, to not donate to charity as a tax shelter would be a missed opportunity to make their money go farther and do good at the same time.

    3) I’m pretty sure the Jolie-Pitt foundation has done a lot in New Orleans as well as other projects we haven’t heard about. The highly publicized Africa trips are part of her job as UN Goodwill Ambassador and as such, are paid for by the UN, not their foundation. So no, they are not just paying themselves. Also, her UN trips have raised a lot of awareness of worldwide women’s issues specifically because she is such a public figure. People may not know who the politicians are but they sure as heck know who Angelina Jolie is and therefore pay attention to things she is involved in which they may otherwise ignore ordinarily.

    4) Finally, if you have ever listened to any of her speeches regarding her UN trips, she is not a savior. She is baffled over why she won the genetic lottery and ended up in the US while these women who are probably smarter than her are being abused in such awful ways. So she does what she knows will be most effective for her. She shines her public spotlight on these overlooked issues.

    1. Their joint foundation is highly respected and considered 1 of the few foundations from celebs that give a very high quantity of funds to doing good and not lining pockets. Some have tried to attack thir foundation and charity works and have failed. If you really look at the numbers (which are quite honest and open) it’s clear it’s not a tax shelter.
    And her UN trips are far from highly publicised as you claim. Virtually no money can be traced from the UN to promoting those trips. Infact, it’s been noted multiple times how Jolie tries to keep attention off of her and focusing on the cause. She welcomes it if it ins’t about her (clothes/appearance/ring watch) and stays on point.
    AJ does pay out of pocket to ease the cost for those trips. It’s happened and been noted.

    And i’m not saying she’s a “savior”. Is anybody saying that? If so that’s over the top trolling to claim so. She is well spoken and well versed in what she speaks about. It’s not simply a sound bite prepared by a 2nd party. She cares and that’s a lot considering the celebs out there that dabble in charity work and claim more.

    And how is she baffled? Is she baffled as to why such cruety exists? Because so am I. Aren’t you? Or would you say it’s justified or at the very least see the reasons for this treatment and are not so baffled?

    I can never understand a negative view on this person. Someone who could easily live out their life without lifting a finger for others. Instead she donates a large amount of her time and funds to causes that many forget about. Same as Brad. He is still in NOLA building homes. Still fund raising. And they’re still a family.
    She shines her spotlight on these women who might be smarter than her. She’s using her spotlight for something more than self promotion.

    I just don’t understand why there’s such dislike for her.
