The Sweet Detail You Didn't Know About Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt's Wedding Cake

When actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie met on the set of the movie "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" in 2004, sparks flew between them immediately according to Harper's BAZAAR. It wasn't long after that it was revealed the two were not only lovers on-screen but also in real life. Soon, the couple, nicknamed Brangelina by the media, was stepping out in public together but doing so amid controversy, as Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston when the couple met.In January 2006, the pair announced they were expecting their first child, and six years later they were engaged (via Harper's BAZAAR). 

Jolie and Pitt finally tied the knot in August 2014 in a secret, intimate ceremony at Château Miraval, a winery in the south of France, according to ABC News. There were only 20 guests in attendance. Among the special guests were of course their six children: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Knox and Vivienne. Pitt and Jolie's children also played significant roles in the wedding. Glamour reports that Maddox and Pax walked Jolie down the aisle, Zahara and Vivienne served as flower girls, and Shiloh and Knox were the ring bearers. Jolie wore Versace, accompanied by a long veil covered with drawings by the children, per the Evening Standard. But there are still a few more sweet family details and traditions that took place during the private ceremony.  

Their son, Pax, was the icing on the cake

Pitt and Jolie's son, Pax, played an even sweeter part in the pair's celebration: the wedding cake. As reported by ABC, Pax played a big part in constructing the homemade cake, which featured alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla cake with white frosting in between and frosted flowers adorning the sides. Although their cake wasn't made by a specialty bakery or pastry chef, it was a touching sentiment and the perfect "something new" that money or professional decorating skills can't buy. Nuptials and homemade cake aside, ABC noted that Jolie honored her late mother Marcheline Bertrand with "something borrowed," in the form of a flower ring that Bertrand often wore. The couple's children also played a part in writing the vows, which featured loving promises made to their family.

As for something blue, well, unfortunately, Pitt and Jolie's wedded bliss didn't last forever. The pair divorced in 2016 and are still currently involved in a custody battle over their six children, according to USA TODAY
