Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie tapped into their Mr. & Mrs. Smith roots and pulled off the impossible: Brangelina got married under the celeb radar and gave their kids starring roles.
After nine years together, a two-year engagement, and six kids ... it was definitely time to make it official. Brad and Angelina's unconventional journey to the altar probably made the ceremony even sweeter because they were surrounded by their beloved children.
Jolie was walked down the aisle by her two eldest sons, Maddox, 13, and Pax, 11. Daughters Sahara, 9, and Vivienne, 6, threw rose petals. Their other daughter, Shiloh, 8, served as ring bearer alongside brother Knox, 6. Kudos to Brangelina again for being open-minded parents who embrace their kids' individual preferences and personalities.

Even the setting was incredibly meaningful for the family. Brad and Angie got married at Chateau Miraval in the village of Correns, France. They settled there back in 2008 and did extensive renovations to the property to make it their own. The whole wedding seems so intimate, so perfect ... beyond worth the wait.
There's nothing like the feeling of saying "I do" in front of family and friends. What guests most remember about weddings is that overwhelming feeling of love when they share in something so beautiful. Imagine having the honor of your children by your side to witness it all? The wedding becomes a part of the family tapestry, a lovely memory stitched in their minds. Instead of looking at mom and dad's wedding album, they are in the wedding album. Is there a greater gift?
Did you involve your kids in your wedding?
