How Angelina Jolie Honored Her Mother At Her WeddingPublished on September 4, 2014. Updated October 15, 2014
At her wedding to Brad Pitt last weekend, Angelina Jolie paid tribute to her late best friend: her mother.
Angelina, who lost her mother Marcheline Bertrand to ovarian cancer in 2007, remembered her with jewelry and a special dedication.
“Brad had a dedication to Marcheline engraved inside the chapel where we stood,” the 39 year-old told People magazine. When Angelina and Brad, 50, officially said the words “I do,” they stood on a stone that had the tribute to Angelina’s mother etched into it.
Angelina and her brother, James Haven, also wore special jewelry in remembrance of their mother. “I also wore a little flower ring that was hers, and Jamie wore an angel pin from her jewelry box,” Angelina explained.
Angelina and her mother were very close; Angelina once called her a “best friend.” Angelina has carried on her mother’s tradition of helping others, saying, “She believed nothing would mean anything if you didn’t lead a life that was of use to others.”
As a special representative for UNHCR, the U.N.’s refugee agency, Angelina has recently fought to help Syrian refugees. “Three million refugees is not just another statistic,” she said in a stement. “It is a searing indictment of our collective failure to end the war in Syria.”
