(Newser) – Details about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's unexpected weekend wedding in France are slowly filtering out to the masses. Here are some of the reported highlights:

  • What's even more surprising than their nuptials is the fact that the power couple may not have spent more than a few thousand bucks to pull the whole thing off. As E! Online explains, the couple got married on their own estate, their rings (estimated to have cost $250,000) may have been a gift from a jeweler pal, and their kids apparently picked flowers for the occasion from their own garden. Their personal chef supposedly whipped up the repast for the celebration to the tune of $4,000.

  • Fewer than two dozen guests, all apparently from Brad's side, were in attendance, a source tells E!. Angie's dad, Jon Voight, wasn't there, but he was quoted as wistfully saying that "it must have been very beautiful," notes the Stir. There's been no official word on why Voight didn't go—or wasn't invited, since he didn't appear to have known about it—though he was busy over the weekend attending various Emmy events.
  • Jolie's dress was "comfortable with plain white floor-length antique lace and silk" complete with veil—"very traditional, but very Angie," a source tells E!, adding, "Brad lifted [the veil] and gasped because she looked so stunning."
  • Pal George Clooney, who has been in the spotlight for his own upcoming wedding, says to People of the top-secret ceremony, "How great is that?! I'm really happy for Brad and Angie and their whole family."
