I now pronounce you husband and wife… you may now make s’mores! by polkadots33

When most people think of celebrity weddings the most common things to come to mind are paparazzi photos of Armani clad Katie Holmes or the elaborate decor featured in many entertainment magazines following  any celeb’s big affair; this time though, the event was much, much different.

In May of this year after a year of dating a ring showed up on Scarlett Johannson’s finger, which was later confirmed to be an engagement ring from boyfriend Ryan Reynolds, whom she had been dating for about a year (the ring by the way was estimated to cost approximately $30 000).

However, according to Hello! the couple tied the knot this weekend in Canada. The 30-40 guests in attendance slept in tents and spent the weekend fishing, horseback riding and biking in the wilderness of Vancouver Island.

The 23 year old actress wanted a small private affair and the couple will likely plan a larger reception later at some time.  Their choice of location was away from prying eyes at the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort near Tofino on Vancouver Island and also just a short ferry ride from Ryan’s hometown of Vancouver.

According to Stuff Scarlett had told paparazzi that they were in no rush to get married and were enjoying being engaged. Apparently this was meant to throw media attention off and it looks as though it may have worked (that and the fact that they were smack dab in the middle of the forested island)!

According to People magazine the 31 year old groom did some salmon and halibut fishing while the guests participated in various other outdoor activities.

Johansson and Reynolds are not the only Hollywood couple tht has opted for a small private wedding in the last little while.

  • Ashley Simpson and husband Pete Wentz were married in Simpson’s parents backyard
  • Jessica Alba and Cash Warren married at the Beverley Hill’s courthouse, with no guests at all.
  • And despite her estimated 17 carat diamond ring Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon tied the not on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas

So while the engagement rings continue to grow in size and price, the smaller weddings are becoming more popular among the typically lavish celebrities.
