In case you just turned on your computer or television or just happened to lose contact with the rest of the world for a hot minute, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got married over the weekend. Yeah, they finally made an honest man and wife of one another in a small ceremony with their family and friends in France. In case you were wondering if this is an elaborate Twitter hoax, it isn’t. I seriously haven’t been this surprised since Pitt’s pal George Clooney announced his engagement to Amal Alamuddin earlier this year. Speaking of, was George Clooney at Brangelina's wedding? Let's figure this out!
But first, some background information: Mr. and Mrs. Smith made it official this Saturday, totally explaining their absence during Beyoncé’s VMA Video Vanguard performance. They had a small wedding at Chateau Miraval in Provence, and a California judge conducted the ceremony. Actually, now that I think about it, having a wedding right before the VMAs, the Emmys, and Chelsea Handler’s last show was pretty smart of them. We were all too preoccupied with speculating winners, possible fashion choices, and exactly who was in Chelsea Handler’s star-studded choir to notice that that these A-list actors were off the grid. Well played, you two.
Maybe Pitt’s pal Clooney should take note for his own upcoming nuptials to London lawyer Amal Alamuddin. I’m sure if anyone had to be there, it would be George. Come to think of it, wasn't Clooney going to officiate for Brangelina?
Fine. That might've been just a rumor, but back in February, reportedly Pitt approached Clooney to officiate the ceremony and the former man about town was totally on board with it, even jokingly asking people to call him Reverend George. Granted that was a bit of gossip, but I could definitely see the debonair playing officiant. Plus, his fiancée has some experience and could've told him how to quell those nerves, seeing as Alamuddin officiated her cousin's wedding back in July.
Even if Clooney wasn't part of the altar, he still could've been there. We do know he was in Europe a few days later. He was spotted with Alamuddin in Italy, shooting a Nespresso commercial in Cernobbio on Wednesday. Geographically speaking, Italy's just a hop, skip, and a jump from France — helpful if you have an actor's salary to be such a jet-setter, too. Besides, who takes their fiancée with them to a commercial taping if she wasn't his plus-one to his best friend's wedding? Who else would he take?
Okay, maybe not. But I do have a feeling Clooney and his future bride were there celebrating the happy couple, clinking glasses, eating cake, and probably taking notes for their own wedding to come.
