Matthew McConaughey, Camila Alves whispered vows on wedding
New York: Matthew McConaughey wed long time girlfriend model Camila Alves in a very intimate wedding at the couple’s home in Austin, Texas.
When the pair said, “I do” during the ceremony this past weekend, no one else heard a word.
According to Us Weekly, the couple whispered their vows in each other’s ears in one of the ceremony’s most touching moments.
“No one knew what they said,” the New York Daily News quoted a source as telling the publication.
“Whatever they said was very emotional. [Camila] was tearing up,” the source said.
McConaughey, 42, and Alves, 29 (who now will take her husband’s last name, her rep confirmed to People), decided to go the non-traditional route on a few other wedding staples as well.
They eschewed the traditional first dance in the Austin ceremony, as well as the wedding cake, opting for a variety of desserts instead.
After sharing a long, passionate kiss, the couple danced the night away on Saturday and kept the party going well into the early hours of Sunday morning.
The guests who were still standing on Sunday were then treated to “crawfish, brisket and fried okra” by celebrity chef Guy Fieri, in keeping with the weekend’s Southern theme.
The couple had been together for six years when McConoughey finally popped the question last Christmas.
The couple have two children together — son Levi, 3, and daughter Vida, 2.
