Matthew McConaughey and long-time, Brazilian girlfriend Camila Alves tied the knot this weekend in a private wedding in Austin, Texas, at the 42-year-old actor's expansive estate.

Only a few dozen intimate friends and family were invited to the affair, which provided an impromptu campground complete with tents for guests to stay on the property and sleep overnight.

The couple made their engagement announcement just last Christmas, but say they feel as if they've already been married for a long time: "We have homes together, we have family together, we have kids, we've built a life together. So we've been living a married life this whole time."
