Matthew McConaughey Marries Camila Alves

13 Jun

Matthew McConaughey is now a married man!

The actor wed the mother of his two children, Camila Alves, in an intimate Saturday evening ceremony. The couple, who got engaged last Christmas Day after almost five years together, tied the knot in front of their close friends and family at their Austin, Texas property. Camila has taken Matthew’s surname and has officially become Camila McConaughey.

McConaughey, 42, and Alves, 29, a Brazilian model and designer who the actor has told PEOPLE is “the love of my life,” kept mum about the wedding, even to some guests, until the last minute.

Matthew wore a three-piece black tuxedo by Dolce & Gabanna and Camila wore a gown by a Brazilian designer. They whispered their wedding vows into each others ears; “No one knows what they said, but you could tell it was emotional because she was teary-eyed,” a source told UsWeekly. The couple also forwent traditional wedding pastimes in favor of lawn games (like beanbag and ring toss), a dessert table instead of a cake, and a feast of Southern classics like “crawfish, brisket and fried okra” cooked up celebrity chef Guy Fieri.

Among the guests were their children Levi, three, and two-year-old Vida, along with celebs including Reese Witherspoon, Jim Toth, John Cougar Mellencamp, Meg Ryan and Woody Harrelson, who stayed in air conditioned tents in the grounds of the Texas property ahead of the ceremony.

Matthew has been seen out and about yesterday flashing his wedding ring.
