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?

I Love Natalie Hershlag but This marriage will not last because it was doomed the day she met him. If you think I’m wrong watch, but hey she don’t care so long as the camera is focused on her in spotlight.

It’s her mother’s wedding dress. It is often a tradition to do this and the style would fit the time. AND that sourceless quote mentioned elsewhere on the web on the fact that ‘[Natalie] may not even wear a new dess.’

Doesn’t fit well.

It’s not her mother’s wedding dress- it was designed by Rodarte– the Mulleavy sisters.

Refreshing to see something different than the oh-so-tired strapless look that we always see. I love the fact that she is confident to be an original…I think it suits her wedding perfectly!

Natalie looks like more like the flower girl.

really?? on

ew ew ew. looks like a little girl dress –where’s the patent white leather Mary Jane shoes with the straps? There are so many gorgeous dresses, this one is already forgotten. A simple white silk gown with a slight train would’ve been stunning at Big Sur….sigh.

The dress? Not the greatest not the worst. I like the bottom half the top half doesn’t fit her. Second I have an issue with the article. I’m sorry but how is it “ironic” that the people who made her wedding gown also designed her tutu? Seriously people misuse that word all the time its so irritating!

Kathleen Sauer on

One never sees her smiling so broadly… I’ll bet in this shot she just caught sight of Aleph! But I agree… hopefully, at a different angle, the dress looks better than here.
Hope they’ll be happily wed for a long time.
