How’s this for wedded bliss?

Matthew McConaughey and his bride Camila Alves are the portrait of happiness in photos from their June 9 at-home wedding in Austin, Texas.

“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 pair welcomed around 120 guests – including Reese Witherspoon, Kenny Chesney and Woody Harrelson – for a three-day extravaganza of summer fun surrounding the nuptials.

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.”
