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?

Stunning is right… that dress makes her look like a chubby linebacker. What a horrible thing to do to Natalie Portman!!!

Natalie looks like she is wearing her “first Holy Communion” dress….Ugh….I don’t have a problem with the modesty part but she looks like a little kid, not a grown woman who is an accomplished actress, mom and now a wife! Those 2 sisters who are designers need to look for another line of work!

Take the sleeves off. It would have made a bif difference in the dress if it would have been pretty cap sleeves or even no sleeves at all. Those sleeves make herlook large and blocky.

She is so gorgeous. That dress is horrible. She looks happy, but seriously…out of any dress in the universe, what was she thinking?!

She is so elegant and dresses beautifully albeit modestly, but this dress was too frumpy. I love the nod to the long sleeves, but it was not a good fit. I thought her stylist could have done a better job. I get the simplicity factor, but this was too much.

Well- I don’t care what anyone else thinks. Really! She’s Adorable, & she looks Sooo Happy. She’s Wearing It-It’s Her Wedding & As long as She Loves it-That Is All That Matters! Everyone has different tastes anyway & that makes life Interesting. Everyone Does Not Have To Like It. Go Natalie! And The Very Best Of Luck To Both Of You. : D
