Matthew McConaughey is officially off the market: after 6 years and 2 kids together, the actor married model Camila Alves, in a beautiful and private ceremony held over the weekend in their backyard.

People has all the details of the beautiful reception, as well as a promise that this week's print issue will bring fans an exclusive look at the bride and groom on their happiest day ever.

The celebrity magazine bought the exclusive rights to the pictures of the couple on their wedding day.

“The couple wed Saturday evening in a private ceremony in Texas, with Alves taking the groom's last name to officially become Camila McConaughey, the actor's rep tells People,” the mag writes.

“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,” People further says.

They included A-listers like Reese Witherspoon, Woody Harrelson and Richard Linklater, but also close friends and family not linked to showbiz.

“After the ceremony, wedding guests stayed in dozens of tents McConaughey pitched on his sprawling property for the occasion,” People says.

Indeed, Us Magazine confirms, the guests had the option of spending the night on the property in tents built for this purpose alone.

Insiders describe them for the latter publication as “high end camping,” where guests got to sleep in tents equipped with everything they could possibly need, like shower rooms, air conditioning and restrooms.

All these details aside, other insiders vouch that the ceremony was the most touching they'd ever been to.

“There were about 100 of his close friends and family there. [The ceremony] was very emotional,” one spy says for Us Magazine.

“There was a moment when... [Matthew] leaned down and whispered something in [Camila's] ear and you could see a tear coming down her face. Everyone let out a collective sigh,” adds the spy.

As noted above, photos of the ceremony will come out later this week, in the latest issue of People.
