The couple exchanged vows in a nighttime wedding that took place at a private home in Big Sur, California on Saturday, reports Us Weekly. The barely lit ceremony was conducted in traditional Jewish fashion – Portman, 31, and Millepied, 35, said "I do" beneath a chuppah in front of close family and friends, with the stars being their only source of light. How intimate!
The newlyweds have been together since working on the set of Black Swan in 2010. They announced their engagement (and pregnancy!) later that year, though they kept all of the other details of their relationship extremely private.
However, when a glowing Portman won the Oscar for her role in the film the following year, she couldn't help by gush about her dancer-choreographer and French fiance: "My beautiful love, Benjamin, who has now given me my most important role of my life." Did Natalie Portman & Benjamin Millepied Get Married In Secret?
That role, of course, was motherhood – the actress gave birth to son Aleph in June 2011. Afterwards, we didn't see much of the family until this year's Oscars, when Portman and Millepied appeared on the red carpet wearing what appeared to be wedding bands on their ring fingers. At the time, we were worried that we had missed all the fun of their wedding. So, we're happy to know that we weren't completely in the dark about their nuptials – even if the ceremony itself was!
Congrats to the happy couple!
