How’s this for wedded bliss?
“We decided to embrace the ritual of marriage as an opportunity and adventure we’ll take together,” McConaughey, 42, tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story, which features exclusive photos and details from the couple’s big day.
The ceremony was especially meaningful for the pair’s children, Levi, who turns 4 in July, and Vida, 2½, who served as ring bearer and flower girl at the Catholic ceremony.
Says Camila, 29: “Somehow they both seem to understand what we are doing on a spiritual level.”
