The first look of Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves in their wedding attire has been released. The newly-married couple gave the pictures from their June 9 wedding to People magazine, pouring out details of the nuptials at the same time.
The bride wears a long-sleeved lace gown and lace veil while the groom opted for black suits and bow tie. The pair invited over 120 guests including such celebrities as Reese Witherspoon, Kenny Chesney and Woody Harrelson. The guests stayed for a three-day party at the couple's home in Austin, Texas.
"We decided to embrace the ritual of marriage as an opportunity and adventure we'll take together," McConaughey told the magazine. The actor and his model wife are parents to 4-year-old boy named Levi and a 2.5-year-old girl named Vida who served as the ring bearer and flower girl.
"Levi has asked me many times over the years, 'Mama, why am I a McConaughey but you aren't?' " said Alves, who takes her husband's last name. "They are both very excited. Somehow they both seem to understand what we are doing on a spiritual level." McConaughey added, "It's a union between ourselves and God. A covenant for us, our children and the world."
