Minister Of The Wedding That Never Was Welcomes Jolie + Pitt
The minister who was rumoured to be marrying BRAD PITT and ANGELINA JOLIE at the weekend (29Mar08) has opened his arms and his church to the couple, inviting them to exchange vows before him. Reverend Tony Talavera, who owns the French Quarter Wedding Chapel in New Orleans, Louisiana, where Pitt and Jolie have a home, was inundated with media questions and requests when he was linked to the wedding that never was. But, far from getting annoyed with the fuss, the minister is keen to oversee the Pitt-Jolie wedding for real. He tells Life + Style magazine, "I have not met them, but we extend the invitation. We're glad they're neighbours." But sources suggest the couple will wed overseas this summer (08). One insider tells the publication that France remains a favourite wedding site - because that's where Jolie's late mother Marcheline Bertrand was born. The source says, "They're planning to go there (France) on May 20." And it's reported that pregnant Jolie will give birth to the couple's new baby in a remote French farmhouse. The insider adds, "They've been looking at chateaus where they'll stay until Angie gives birth. It's really important for her to have the baby in France because her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, was of French descent. It would be a wonderful tribute to Angelina's mom."
