PEOPLE debuted the first official photos from Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves' lavish weekend, held last Saturday in Austin, TX.

In the issue on stands now, McConaughey, 42, opens up about being a newly minted married man, admitting, "[Camila and I] decided to embrace the ritual of marriage as an opportunity and adventure we'll take together."

The wedding itself -- which was stretched over three days -- was a traditional Catholic ceremony. The couple's two children, Levi, 3, and Vida, 2, served as ring bearar and flower girl, respectively.

"Somehow they both seem to understand what we are doing on a spiritual level," said Camila of her children.

The 120-person guest list included a number of famous faces -- everyone from Reese Witherspoon to Woody Harrelson.

As previously reported, Alves, 29, wore a dress handmade by her favorite Brazilian designer, while McConaughey donned a three-piece tuxedo by Dolce & Gabana. The couple chose to whisper their vows to each other, instead of saying them out loud.

At the wedding's reception, guests were treated to Brazilian meats, a variety of deserts and a live band that played American pop and Brazilian rock hits.

The couple met in 2006. They got engaged over the Christmas holiday, in 2011.

McConaughey will next appear on the big screen in Magic Mike, out June 29.

The couple's wedding photos come just one week after PEOPLE debuted the exclusive photos from Drew Barrymore's wedding to Will Kopelman. See the photos here.

    I think they're such a wonderful couple and it seems they really love each other, but i'd never thought that Matthew will sell his privacy in some tabloide. What the hell is wrong with them, he's got a lot of money so what's the deal? Leave something for yourself or someday we will see your wife's post-labor crotch on your Twitter
