It finally happened! Natalie Portman married her handsome long-time boyfriend Benjamin Millepied in California on August 5. Their secret Jewish wedding ceremony was held in Big Sur at a private mansion and only included sixty guests. Big Sur is Natalie’s most preferred getaway destination where she often comes to relax from her LA hectic schedule and recharge batteries.
The lovely couple said ‘I do’ beneath a chuppah under cover of darkness. Now that’s what we call romantic! So far nobody knows further details because Natalie and her fiancé Benjamin did their best to keep the low-key wedding as fiercely private and far from the paparazzi’s eyes as possible. Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied got married six months after their engagement.
Despite being quiet about their feelings for each other in public, Portman did let the words of love slip during her acceptance speech after being awarded the Golden Globe in January 2011. Natalie also thanked Benjamin for giving her the best role ever – motherhood. Check out the couple’s lovely wedding bands they quietly debuted at the 2012 Academy Awards.
The beautiful Oscar-winning actress, 31, and French-born dancer-choreographer, 35, met on the set of ‘Black Swan’ for the first time. Benjamin Millepied choreographed the movie and had a small role in it. People who watched the couple’s relationship evolve said the powerful chemistry between them was impossible to overlook. The couple announced their engagement and pregnancy in December 2010. Their son Aleph is 13 months old now.
