The three-day long celebration kicked off with a relaxed rehearsal dinner on Friday night at McConaughey's house, where he told his special guests how dedicated he was to marrying Alves, reports Us Weekly. On Saturday morning, guests lounged around barefoot, drank beers and relaxed in hammocks in the makeshift campground that the couple set up in McConaughey's backyard, which included tents full of high-end food, entertainment, places to sleep and plenty of refreshing AC. Lawn games like beanbag and ring toss also kept the guests entertained (this so sounds like McConaughey's style!).
Later that afternoon, the groom changed into a three-piece black Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo, according to People, while Alves put on her handmade gown (designed by one of her favorite Brazilian designers) and Stuart Weitzman heels. A-List Links: Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves Getting Married!
"Matthew looked so handsome, like an Old Hollywood movie star," a guest tells People. "And Camila was just glowing and beautiful!"
During the wedding ceremony, McConaughey, 42, and Alves, 29, whispered their pre-written vows into each other's ears. It was an emotional moment that the Brazilian bride teary-eyed as their children, son Levi, 3, and daughter Vida, 2, sat close by. After guest John Mellencamp performed a bible verse he transformed into a song, McConaughey passionately kissed his new bride, now officially Camila McConaughey!

According to Us Weekly, the reception took place in a huge tent where guests—including Meg Ryan, Woody Harrelson, Reese Witherspoon, Jim Toth, and the couple's close family and friends—filled up on rotisserie-style Brazilian meats and sweet desserts while a band played a mix of pop and Brazilian rock music. McConaughey and his new bride decided against the traditions of a first dance and a grand wedding cake, opting instead for a fun, boozy dance party that lasted all night long.
