Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt’s expensive wedding
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt met in 1998 through a blind date. They got engaged a year later and exchanged “I do’s” in 2000.
The two were very secretive. Their wedding was very private. Most of the details of the event were kept secret and were almost no photo from the event. There were also a bunch of white tents on the five-acre estate they rented to ensure that everything was out of sight from the people who were not invited.
However, some details still leaked. According to an insider, the bride wore a glass-beaded, floor-length, silk-and-latin, low-backed wedding dress designed by Lawrence Steele. Aniston’s father, who was also present on the big day, couldn’t help but praised her.
“Jennifer looked beautiful,” Aniston’s proud dad, John Aniston, said.
“It was a spectacular wedding.”
