How Angelina Jolie Incorporated Her Kids Into Her Wedding Attire

The Jolie-Pitt children, including Zahara, 9, and Vivienne, 6, "wrote vows and asked us to make promises to each other," Jolie, 39, reveals in People's Sept. 15 issue. "It was very sweet what they came up with."

The six siblings also had a hand in creating their mother's veil, as their doodles were incorporated into the Atelier Versace design.

"I wanted the kids to be a part of everything, including the dress, because that's our family," the bride told Hello! magazine. "That represents the way we live out life together."

"It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter," the blissful newlyweds said in a statement. "It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family."

Jolie and Haven honored their late mother in other ways. "I also wore a little flower ring that was hers, and Jamie wore an angel pin from her jewelry box," she says.

As E! News previously reported, Jolie also accessorized her understated gown by wearing "a small gold locket with a photo of her mom inside it."

The A-list actors' complementary wedding bands were designed by Robert Procop and carried by ring bearers Shiloh, 8, and Knox, 6. At one point in the ceremony, guests laughed when a ring was dropped.
