Caroline Ritter, 34, and Andrew Porters, 29, said their “I do’s” in front of Chewbacca, R2-D2 and Jedi Knights.

Darth Vader walked the bride down the aisle outside the theater while Obi-Wan Kenobi officiated and guests dressed as Stormtroopers. The honeymoon, of course, was spent watching the movie.

The wedding was planned 18 months ago when the release date for The Force Awakens was announced, according to TheWrap.com.

Fans from around the world are hyped for the latest installment to the franchise. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg posted a photo of his newborn daughter, Max, dressed up as a Jedi.


The force is strong with this one.
