Matthew McCounaghey's bride Camila Alves brings true Brazilian flair to their wedding!
After six years and two kids together, Brazilian beauty Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey are finally married! The ridiculously beautiful couple wed on Saturday in a private ceremony at their home in Austin. And the party (reportedly 3 days!) was a perfect blend of cultures, with an "island beach meets Texas" theme that incorporated elements of both McConaughey's southern roots and Alves' Latina heritage.
Though the actual event took place in Texas (where the couple permanently moved in March to raise their almost 4-year-old son, Levi and 2-year-old daughter, Vida), Alves made sure to bring plenty of Latina flair to their reception. The festivities were decorated in bright, beach colors of yellow and orange and a live band played a mix of pop and Brazilian rock hits.

But the big stand-out of the night--besides the bride, of course---was apparently the food! Estancia Churrascaria, a Brazilian steak house, catered the wedding with a menu that included Brazilian top and bottom steak, chicken wrapped in bacon and pork sausages with cheese bread. Sounds delicious!
Alves decided to stick with convention and take her new hubby's last name. That's right, the 30-year-old model/handbag designer is now officially Camila McConaughey! And though there aren't many details about the dress it was reportedly designed by one of Alves' favorite Brazilian designers.

Personally, I am so excited and thrilled for the newlyweds. They're one of those couples who I was rooting for to get married since they first got together, but I think the fact that they decided to wait only shows how strong their relationship is. And as Alves (now McConaughey) once said, they've been living the married life for a long time already.
Still, I can't help but be glad that they've made it official in front of their children, family and friends--especially since it sounds like it was a great party! Congrats to the happy couple and their kids!
