FIRST LOOK: Natalie Portman's Ethereal White Wedding Dress

When Natalie Portman needed a wedding dress appropriate for a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony in California’s chilly Big Sur, the actress called on her friends. Her fashion friends, that is.

A source tells PEOPLE that Portman tied the knot in a dress by Rodarte, the label run by Portman’s longtime pals, sisters Laura and Kate Mulleavy. The frothy white A-line frock, left, was tea length, and featured a sheer overlay that covered the star’s chest and arms. She accessorized the simple gown with nude shoes, a veil and what appeared to be a floral crown.

The actress has been a fan of the young line for several years, wearing Rodarte creations on press tours for The Other Boleyn Girl, Black Swan and for the 2011 Oscars, where she nabbed the best actress statuette.

Portman and dancer Benjamin Millepied wed Saturday night in a moonlit ceremony attended by family (including their 14-month-old son, Aleph) and friends, such as Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner and Macaulay Culkin.

The pair met when Portman was filming Black Swan in the fall of 2009 (coincidentally, Rodarte designed her iconic tutu for that film) and announced their engagement and pregnancy in December 2010. Tell us: What do you think of Portman’s wedding dress?

Ntalie Portman is such a beautiful woman. What was she thinking when she said OK to this blah sack to wear on her wedding day??? The Mulleavy Sisters are no friends to Natalie. Proving this by allowing her to walk down the aisle in this Rodarte 3rd grade sewing project. Modesty pairs with elegance quite beautifully. Sadly, modest frump is what we have here.

Sorry, I don’t like the dress. I really dislike the sleeves. Sheer sleeves like that shouldn’t be baggy.

Who cares what I think of the dress! It’s her special day and all that counts is what she thought of the dress!

I’m proud of her for keeping her tradition–agree with v–worst dress of all time–worst wedding dress too, oh Natalie!!! She’s very happy so maybe she doesn’t care? Good luck Doll–please get R. Zoe to help you next time–with the vegan theme, yes!! Muah

Shea – Audrey’s wedding dress worn to marry Mel Ferrer was described as a ‘tea length frock worn with a floral wreath in her hair’. I realize that dress and Natalie’s are different but there are similarities. The wedding dress Audrey wore in Funny Face shares the same simplicity w/o sleeves as well as the lovely dress she wore to accept her Oscar for Roman Holiday. The other commonality would be both of the ladies minimalism. I love the detail, workmanship and fit of vintage dresses were I Natalie I would have searched for the perfect vintage dress to marry in if that’s the look I wanted. I did in fact were a Bianchi gown from the 50’s to marry my sweet hubby in 1997.
