It’s official. According to USA Today, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt tied the knot in France this past weekend. A spokesperson for the couple has confirmed this. The two wed in a small, private ceremony that was attended by a handful of family members and very close friends.
Angelina Jolie was reportedly escorted down the aisle by sons Maddox, who is thirteen, and Pax, who is ten. Daughters Zahara and Vivienne, who are nine and six, respectively, threw rose petals for their famous mom. Daughter Shiloh, eight, and son Knox, six, served as ring bearers.
The Jolie-Pitt family is said to have arrived in France on Friday, and locals assumed they were en route to their Chateau Miraval. There were no hints at all that something even bigger and better was in store.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got engaged back in 2012, and much speculation has ensued since then as to where and when–if ever–the two would tie the knot.

ABC News reports that a California judge helped obtain the marriage license, and traveled to France to conduct the wedding ceremony.
Brad Pitt–who has long been a close friend of George Clooney’s–will no doubt be ribbing his buddy before too long. Even though Clooney is engaged and soon to wed Amal Alamuddin, Pitt still beat George Clooney to the altar.
It will be interesting to see which publication prints the first photos of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s wedding. Whichever one the couple chooses will no doubt have paid a hefty fee to get them.
