12 Hidden Details On Angelina Jolie’s Wedding Dress You Didn’t Know About
When two of Hollywood’s biggest stars crossed paths in 2004 on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, neither was looking for a relationship. Brad Pitt was married to Jennifer Anniston and Angelina Jolie was happy being a single mother to her son, Maddox. As love stories often go, the chemistry between the two was infectious and it was immediately clear that the duo was bordering the line between close friends and something more. Although Pitt and Jolie are now separated, in 2014 the duo officially tied the knot with their family and children in one of the world’s most anticipated celebrity weddings. The ceremony was quite intimate, with only 22 guests total, because Jolie felt it was crucial to make the children feel included, and she stayed true to this belief even down to the details of her gown! Follow along for 12 hidden details on Angelina Jolie’s infamous wedding gown:

Their beloved children, Maddox, 15, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, Pax, 12 and eight-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne all contributed by creating doodles of good wishes and memories for their parents onto the back of the dress and veil.
