Actor Matthew McConaughey married longtime love Camila Alves in Austin, Texas, on Saturday, part of a festive weekend that perfectly represented the actor's laid-back lifestyle.

Friends and family gathered at McConaughey and Alves' expansive property where games like bean bag and ring toss kept the party busy. Hammocks and cold beer were on hand for siesta, according to People magazine.

The bride spent her Saturday afternoon in jeans and a T-shirt before slipping into a custom white gown from a Brazilian designer, unnamed but noted by the magazine as one of Avles' favorites. McConaughey donned a black three-piece tuxedo by Dolce & Gabbana.

The service was presided over by a local pastor and a monk, who both took turns in offering remarks. With no bridesmaids or groomsmen in sight, the couple exchanged hushed vows.

"They whispered them in each other's ears. No one knew what they said," reports Us Weekly. "Whatever they said was very emotional. [Camila] was tearing up."

Guests didn't have to wander far after the reception — the couple erected chic white tents on the grounds for loved ones to camp out under the stars.

McConaughey and Alves met in 2007. They have two children, almost-4-year-old son Levi and daughter Vida.
