After Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds quietly tied the knot last weekend on Canada’s Vancouver Island, the world was abuzz over the details of the nuptials — and the eco-friendly setting in which they took place.
The new couple chose the ecologically-conscious and exclusive Clayoquat Wilderness Resort which, according to Cele|bitchy, “specializes in weddings and honeymoons, to offer their guests plenty of outdoor activities along with a luxurious nature-themed setting.” Want a spend three nights there? Prepare to dish out $4,458.00 USD per person!
Anyways, while the location may have been environmentally-friendly — the transportation in getting there certainly was not. Unfortunately, Johansson and Reynolds chose an island that was not accessible by ferry — instead opting to fly their guests over in seven chartered sea planes. From The Inquirer,
Approximately 35 close friends and family members were instructed to gather at a specific time at Vancouver International Airport on the wedding day, the insider revealed to the Enquirer. They were not told ahead of time where they were going.They boarded chartered seaplanes – five to six guests in each of seven planes – and were whisked to a secluded resort owned by a friend of the couple on a remote island, outside of Vancouver off the coast of British Columbia. “She and Ryan picked an island that was inaccessible by ferry. The only way to get there was by seaplane.” But despite the big hush-hush, the couple succeeded in pulling off the wedding of their dreams. “It was an absolute gorgeous event,” concluded the insider.
So it looks like the choice for the wedding was less because of its eco-cred and more because, well, the owner was a friend. Either way, this small blip does little to overshadow the good works that Johansson has lent her time to over the years — the latest of which was a trip to Rwanda to draw attention to the continuing fight against AIDS in Africa.
Did Stella McCartney at least get a chance to design the dress?
