Actor Matthew McConaughey and his love, Camila Alves, are planning to walk down the aisle this weekend in Texas.
The couple has invited only a handful of friends and family to the ceremony.
The wedding will also prevent Alves from attending a luncheon in Beverly Hills, where she was to be honored by the Step Up Women’s Network. She will deliver her remarks to the luncheon via video.
McConaughey, 42, and Alves, 30, got engaged on Christmas Day.
“She’s been asking Mateo to put a ring on it forever,” a friend of Alves said. “She’s so happy. It’s like a dream!”
The actor began dating the Brazilian model/handbag designer in 2006. They have two children: 3-year-old Levi and 2-year-old Vida.
They recently relocated to Austin from Los Angeles.
“I grew up here,” McConaughey said in March. “We got children, family values, neighbors and common sense.”
Alves initially hoped for a wedding in her native Brazil.
“Camila wants to get married in Brazil with her family all around,” Life & Style magazine reported in January. “She misses the food and the people there, so she’s planning a big, beautiful Brazilian wedding.”
However, she’s obviously changed her mind.
