After six years together and two children, Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves have married on June 9! The couple tied the knot during an intimate at-home ceremony in Austin, Texas. McConaughey says “We decided to embrace the ritual of marriage as an opportunity and adventure we’ll take together.”
Alves’ gorgeous wedding dress was handmade by one of her favourite designers from Brazil, choosing a pair of white Stuart Weitzman heels to walk down the aisle in. McConaughey chose a black Dolce & Gabbana tux! The guest list included the likes of Woody Harrelson, Reese Witherspoon, Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp who even sang a song during the service!!
Guest were treated to a ‘island beach meets Texas’ themed reception, where they feasted on delicious food from Brazilian steakhouse Estância Churrascaria, including Brazilian top and bottom steak, chicken wrapped in bacon and pork sausages with cheese bread. Tables were a light with plenty of candles and string lights hung overhead and a band provided the music.
In a quirky twist during the ceremony, McConaughey and Alves opted to ‘whisper’ their vows into each other’s ears, rather than sharing them out aloud. How romantic! according to People magazine the bride is also set to take Matthew’s last name, becoming Camila McConaughey!
Congratulations Matthew and Camila!
