NATALIE & BENJAMIN

Wedding style: Traditional Jewish with vegan twist
The Aug. 4 ceremony bonding Natalie Portman to dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied weaved in her Jewish faith, his French culture and the couple's eco-conscious beliefs. After the pair exchanged "I dos" under a rustic chuppah on a bluff overlooking the California coast of Big Sur, guests enjoyed a strictly vegan menu (in keeping with Portman's own diet), snacked on French macarons in lieu of a wedding cake and went home with packets of locally sourced wildflower seeds inscribed with a single word: Merci.
