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?

you know if you have nothing nice to say about SOMEONE ELSE’S WEDDING, dont say anything. Have some manners will you? Its HER wedding.

It’s boring…she could have done better. Her Oscar dress was much more elegant than this get up.

I like it, don’t love it. Sooo glad she is not going with the boobs first look that so many are using now and looks cheap. The look suits her and her beliefs. Most importantly, she looks very happy. God bless them.

I think that all the negative comments are useless. It’s HER dress SHE picked it, so she likes it.

Natalie is very pretty but when i first saw this dress i thought it looked a bit like a communion dress.

I think her dress is appropriate for a traditional religious wedding and I believe Natalie is honoring her parents by dressing modestly. I also believe she asked for a dress that would not be snug and would allow her to move comfortably. This is not a beauty contest, nor a movie premier. She didn’t sell her pictures, nor did she make her wedding public.

The dress is really sweet. Everyone posting negative comments is just not used to seeing someone dressed without their bustline hangin out, or wearing a super tight fitting dress. To me, this shows that Natalie takes her vows seriously and was not looking for the spotlight.

I like it, sweet and simple! Best wishes!

Don’t like the dress at all. Definitely would have axed the flower crown as well. It just doesn’t look right and doesn’t go with the style of dress either. Isn’t it interesting the choices people make when they have literally everything within the realm of possibility to select from? However, CONGRATULATIONS to the couple! :)
