The world was shocked last Wednesday with the news that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, the ultimate “till death do us part” couple, officially tied the knot after almost a decade and six children together. Those six kids had a big part in their mom and dad's big day, and they aren't the only kiddos who enjoyed the wedding spotlight with their parents.
Check out some of the cutest celebrity-kid bridesmaids and groomsmen in Hollywood.
It was a wedding nine years in the making. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt tied the knot last weekend at Chateau Miraval in France, attended by close family, friends and, of course, Pitt and Jolie's children: Maddox, 13; Pax, 10; Zahara, 9; Shiloh, 8; and twins Vivienne and Knox, 6. According to the Associated Press, Maddox and Pax actually walked Jolie down the aisle, while Zahara and Vivienne threw rose petals. Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers.What an adorable little wedding party!
When Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth married in 2011, their wedding was a Southern-themed family affair. Held in Ojai, California, at her 1920's ranch, the wedding included her daughter, 11-year-old Ava, as the maid of honor. Reese wore a custom-designed Monique Lhuillier, which matched Ava's own custom-designed Lhuillier. (Naturally!) Always a bridesmaid …
For a little switch from the traditional celebrity-kid and celebrity-parent scenario, I present Harry Styles–floppy-haired star of the British boyband One Direction, who served as best man at his mother's 2013 wedding! Harry's mom, Anna Cox, married long-time mate Robin Twist, who had raised Harry and his sister, Gemma, after his biological father divorced their mother when he was 7. Robin's son and Harry's sister also served as members of the wedding party as a small group witnessed the joining of two families who were already family!
Although a happy ending wasn't in the cards for Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, their six-year marriage started like a fairytale. The couple, who married in 2006, held a grand wedding in an Italian castle, complete with gourmet food and fireworks. Another highlight of the wedding? Tom and Katie's daughter, Suri, who was 7 months old at the time, was carried down the aisle in a white tulle gown (to match her mother's gorgeous dress) by her big brother, Connor. It was a fitting beginning for one of Hollywood's most famous princesses.
