The groom looks like 'an Old Hollywood movie star,' while the bride is glowing in a Brazilian wedding dress.
One day after Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves tied the knot, details of their wedding that took place in their home in Austin, Texas emerged. The info included what they wore, what treats they had for the guests, and how the sunset ceremony on Saturday, June 9 was different from any other weddings.
According to PEOPLE, the groom donned a three-piece black Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo, and the bride wore a gown handmade by a favorite Brazilian designer and a pair of white Stuart Weitzman heels. "Matthew looked so handsome, like an Old Hollywood movie star," said a guest. "And Camila was just glowing and beautiful!"
The celebration, held for three days throughout the weekend, reportedly was a perfect combination of "island beach meets Texas." The guests arrived on Friday night to have a pre-wedding slumber party. They lounged in hammocks, sipped beer and played lawn games including beanbag and ring toss. They slept in luxury tents set up across the property.
"There were no groomsmen or bridesmaids" unlike other weddings, a different guest told Us Weekly. The insider continued to testify, "And there were two preachers, [a pastor of a local church] and a monk. They switched off saying remarks."
When it came to exchanging their wedding vows, the couple kept it private. "They whispered them in each other's ears. No one knew what they said," the source revealed. "Whatever they said was very emotional. [Camila] was tearing up." When witnessing the emotional nuptials, everyone let out a collective sigh.
The bride was not the only one who cried as "the crowd erupted and there were many tears all around" after they finished their vows. The couple then sealed it with a long, passionate kiss. "There was a lot of clapping and everyone was happy," the eyewitness said.
Matthew and Camila started dating in 2007. She gave birth to their son Levi Alves McConaughey in July 2008 and their daughter Vida Alves McConaughey in January 2010. They got engaged on Christmas Day 2011. "Just asked Camila to marry me," he shared to his Twitter followers back then. "Merry Christmas."
