Celebrity Inspiration: Natalie Portman's Understated Big Sur Wedding

Natalie Portman's recent nuptials to dancer Benjamin Millepied were a wonderful nod to her Jewish faith and his French nationality. Natalie Portman isn't really the type of celebrity to splash her wedding on the cover of every other tabloid, so details on her big day are somewhat sparse -- but the few we do have sound absolutely lovely.

The couple married in Big Sur, California surrounded by friends and family (including Ivanka Trump and Macauly Culkin). The 45-minute ceremony featured oceanside views, a chuppah made of twigs and of course Millepied stomping on a glass to cheers of "Mazel tov!" The couple served a vegan menu (in accordance with Portman's diet) and chose French macarons in lieu of a traditional wedding cake. Guests took home wildflower seed packets as favors adorned with a "Merci" from the new couple.

Portman wore a simple tea-length dress designed for her by friends Laura and Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte and accessorized it with a crown of flowers, nude pumps, and a veil. Love the look? Incorporate a few Natalie-inspired pieces into your own wedding ensemble:
