Scarlett & Ryan Go Natural for Wedding

Even the groom, 31, took advantage of the setting – fishing for salmon and halibut while other guests went horseback riding and mountain biking on the grounds of the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, a luxurious outpost of 20 canvas tents that caters to nature lovers.
"Scarlett wanted a ceremony with just family and a few select friends," says a source close to the 23-year-old bride. Less than 40 people attended the wedding – but those who didn't make the cut shouldn't feel left out.
According to a friend, plans are afoot to throw a larger celebration for the couple, who began dating in April 2007 before announcing their engagement in May.
"They make a great couple and they'll make an even better married couple," says the source.
