1. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

This fairytale wedding was 10 years in the making, dating all the way back to 2004 when sparks first flew between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. The couple, who are the parents of six children, married in a small, private ceremony at Château Miraval in the village of Correns, France. It was a ceremony for the whole family, with their kids participating and having a hand in writing their parents’ vows. Jolie’s wedding dress and veil were even designed with her children’s drawings.
