Grab a tissue — this is so touching! Angelina has revealed how she, her brother, and Brad Pitt remembered her late mother during the ceremony at their French estate, Château Miraval, on Aug. 23.

Angelina Jolie, 39, may not have invited her father, Jon Voight, to her wedding with Brad Pitt, 50, on Aug. 23, but her dear brother, James Haven, 41, was on hand to help the Maleficent actress commemorate their late mother, Marcheline Bertrand.

James Haven & Angelina Jolie Honor Mother At Wedding — How They Remembered Her

Angelina was surrounded by her family and closest friends when she walked down the aisle, but one very special person was missing. Sadly, the actress’ mother passed away in 2007 after a long battle with ovarian cancer.

In an effort to honor Marcheline, the two most important men in Angelina’s life planned very special dedications.

“Brad had a dedication to Marcheline engraved inside the chapel where we stood,” Angelina told PEOPLE magazine. She and Brad then stood on a special stone with a tribute etched onto it when they exchanged “I dos.”

Angelina and her brother James also honored Marcheline by wearing pieces of her jewelry. “I also wore a little flower ring that was hers, and Jamie wore an angel pin from her jewelry box,” Angelina said.

“There are no words to express what an amazing woman and mother she was,” Angelina and James told the magazine.

So sweet — Marcheline’s presence was likely felt by everyone in attendance.

And not only did Angelina honor her mother, but she also honored her six children — Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, Vivienne and Knox, both 6 — in a very unique way!

Angelina Jolie’s Wedding Dress

Angelina wore a breathtakingly unique dress, as seen on the covers of PEOPLE and Hello! Instead of a normal wedding gown, she let her kids have a part in styling her dress.

Luigi Massi, the master tailor at Atelier Versace, sewed designs from her kids’ drawings into the dress and veil, PEOPLE states.

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

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Isn’t it sweet how Angelina and James honored their late mother?
