The hunky star and his model girlfriend have made it official.

Matthew McConaughey, 42, and Camila Alves, 30, tied the knot in Texas on Saturday, their rep tells Alves has taken her hubby's name, so she is now Camila McConaughey.

About two dozen friends and family members gathered for what E! described as a quiet "weekend affair."

Entertainment Tonight reports that the theme of the wedding was "island beach meets Texas" with yellow and orange colors. On the Austin property where the wedding took place, wispy long white tents were sent up, and horseshoe pits, fire pits and tether ball poles were installed for the big day. Estancia Churrascaria, a Brazilian steak house, catered the wedding with a menu that included Brazilian steak, chicken wrapped in bacon and pork sausages with cheese bread.

The two, who have been together since 2006 and have two children, got engaged at Christmastime.

Alves, a model and handbag designer, talked about their relationship in March, telling ET Canada, "We've been living a married life for over six years now. We have homes together, we have family together, we have kids, we've built a life together."

Still, she said at the time, marriage would be good for daughter Vida, 2, and son Levi, who turns 4 next month. "Levi actually understands what it means now that Mama's going to have the same last name as they have."
