While Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's private wedding in France did include close family and friends, there was one relative that was noticeably missing.

Jolie's famous father Jon Voight was not in attendance but was instead at other big events back in the states for his television show Ray Donovan. Upon learning of his daughter's very private nuptials, Voight issued this statement:

"It seems like it was a beautiful simple ceremony with all the kids involved.  Must have been a lot of fun. I am very happy for them."

On Saturday, the day that Jolie and Pitt exchanged vows and custom-designed rings, the 75-year-old actor was photographed at the Variety and Women In Film Emmy Nominee Celebration in West Hollywood, Calif. The following day attended the Showtime 2014 Emmy Eve event.

Jolie, 39, and Pitt, 50, kept pretty mum about their wedding plans, but did they not even tell the actress' father?
