Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt’s Wedding: First Family Photos

cover-768

Newlywed Angelina Jolie graces the newest cover of PEOPLE in her stunning wedding gown. In a smaller photo, the Academy Award-winning actress, 39, is joined by her husband Brad Pitt and their six children: Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and 6-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

In another exclusive cover for Hello!, the actress’ custom designed Luigi Massi gown boasts drawings by the couple’s big brood.

In the intimate ceremony – attended by only 20 friends and family members – the August 23 nuptials were held in the chapel of Château Miraval, the family’s estate in the French village of Correns.

The spectacular wedding day – including exclusive photos of the ceremony, Jolie’s unique dress and the reception – is featured in this week’s issue of PEOPLE, in conjunction with Hello! magazine.

Each Jolie-Pitt child had a key role in the big day: Maddox and Pax walked mom down the aisle; flower girls Zahara and Vivienne tossed petals gathered from the garden; and Shiloh and Knox were the ring bearers. The siblings 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,” the newlywed couple tells PEOPLE. “It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family.”

Luigi Massi, the master tailor at Atelier Versace, custom made Angie’s dress — ensuring that the childrens’ drawings were included in the dress and veil.

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

Pitt, 50, wore a suit from his closet and borrowed a tie from one of his sons because he forgot to pack his own. Following in dad’s footsteps, Vivienne wore a white dress from her closet.

Meanwhile, Zahara’s dress was designed by family friend Adama Kebe, and Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, and Knox wore black suits (Shiloh’s included shorts and a top hat). Jeweler Robert Procop, who custom made Jolie’s stunning engagement ring, designed the couple’s wedding bands.

    I think this is the most precious wedding gown I have ever seen, and I cannot imagine a more intimate, special wedding day than this family experienced together. All families should be so blessed.

    Just one more unique “I never would have thought of that” beautiful and intimate example that indeed, this IS a family in love with each other. The kids resonate pure joy and happiness and security that regardless of this wedding, they know their parents adore them an each other. They found a life together that really has nothing to do with the fame and fortune. They have love and commitment to that love. Bravo!

      Oh, and Pax baked the wedding cake! How awesome is that? I remember reading once Angelina saying he really liked to cook and so maybe he’s a true chef in the making.

    I really like the dress and the kids drawing on the veil. They’ve always been about their family so I’m not surprised that their kids had a hand in every aspect of their wedding.
