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?

Doesn’t seem to fit properly and doesn’t look at all like a wedding gown. More like she is playing dress up. Think it would have looked better with 3/4 sleeves and no veil, just the flowers.

She could have done something much better than this dress.. like everyone said it doesn’t suit her very well and her age just isn’t reflective of the dress well either.

Rhiannon on

She looks happy. The dress looks like it belongs on a flower girl more than a bride. Congrats to the couple!

I think she looks stunning.

Nice dress for a virgin bride under the age of 20. I think something more age appropriate would of been better.

The dress wouldn’t have been so bad if she didn’t pair it with both the crown of flowers and a veil. If she kept it simple with just maybe a cuple f flowers than it would have looked soo much better. The dress is pretty but the accessories ruined it.

I’m not going to pick apart her’s the happiest day of her life, she can wear whatever she wants. That said, I love the style of this dress. In this day of overly-sexy wedding dresses, it modest and lovely. Very Audrey but whimsical with the floral crown. I LOVE the fact she didn’t feel the need to wear towering heels. Embrace your height. Love the flats.

I dont think the dress is becoming. It is far too puffy but if she likes it then oh well.. She is a pretty lady regardless.
