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?

Paulette: you are right. it also does’t buy CLASS. I am so sick of these women who have one or more children,THEN decide to not only get married(that’s a novel idea) but to wear a white wedding dress. Now, a white wedding dress no longer symbolizes an innocent,pure woman. It demeans the symbol.Shame on her. Talented,beautiful actress,but classy? NOT.

She is usually so impeccably dressed, but this doesn’t seem to fit her properly. The top and the arms are especially badly fitted.

That dress is not cute.

oh wow, this is not a pretty dress! not that my opinion matters, but shes worn such beautiful dresses on the “red carpet”, why oh why did she pick this dress to be married in?? i suppose thats the difference when you have a stylist dress you and when you pick out your own dress. all that matters is that she obviously loved dress

She looks like a little girl in the 1970s making her first communion. lol

I actually looked to see if this was a screen cap from a film she did wearing a first communion dress at age 12.

Worried about modesty? Any other time hollywood types running around in backless and plunging necklines. Why now? This is more frumpy than fabulous. Sad since she is such a beautiful woman.
