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?

OMG…I can’t believe you guys are busy looking at the dress that you totally missed the huge smile on her face. She looks so happy at HER wedding in the dress she wanted. Congrats!

Wow. This is the creepiest, stalkiest wedding photo ever. What did the photographer have to do to get this shot? Crouch under a bush 5 blocks away? Yuck.

I love it. Finally someone who is not trying to show off their boobs during a wedding ceremony! So tired of the overdone strapless dresses. Bet the fabric was beautiful in person. Not a good photo, but I really applaude her individuality.

omg, ew…wtf is that? sorry, I really thought she would have picked something more beautiful and not look like she spent an hour getting ready because that’s what it looks like…I don’t know what THAT is, looks like a communion dress…and what’s with the head piece?

I love her but this looks like a flower’s girl’s dress…not the bride’s dress. A little too young looking.

I hope the color of her dress isn’t white!!

I don’t like that dress on her, I’ve seen her wear much more beautiful gowns on the red carpet. This I feel ages her. Disappointing. Still wish her well and a long and happy marriage.

Don’t like the dress. It’s horrible. She looks like a 7-8 year old bridesmaid.

I find Natalie to be extremely beautiful and usually approve of her fashion choices. However, I’m not lovin’ this wedding dress. It just doesn’t seem to flatter her properly. But hey, if that’s what she’s comfortable in and likes, go right ahead! Every bride has the right to wear what she wants on her special day.

Blah, blah, blah! Is that really the best she could do? It looks more like a little kid’s flower girl dress!
