Fans Get Hitched -- With Darth Vader's Help! -- at 'Star Wars' Premiere (PHOTOS)

Star Wars logo, bride and groomIf you are a Star Wars mega-fan, what is one thing you could do to make attending the opening of the hotly anticpated Star Wars: The Force Awakens even more memorable? How about get married at the premiere? And you'd have to have Darth Vader walking the bride down the aisle, Chewbacca in the wedding party, and the ceremony performed by Obi-Wan Kenobi. Because, of course.


Well, Star Wars fans Caroline Ritter and Andrew Porter had been camping out at the TCL Chinese Theatre since December 9, so they are clearly dedicated to Star Wars. And now they are officially dedicated to each other, having answered the theater's call for a couple to get married at the premiere with a resounding set of "I dos."

Let's break down what is awesome about this wedding. First, you have a couple in love who clearly have a major shared passion for Star Wars. We're all about people finding a soul mate. Second, you have Darth Vader, R2-D2, Obi-Wan, and Chewbacca in the ceremony, which is undeniably cool.

The bride and groom both wore fairly traditional outfits -- no gold Leia bikini here, thankfully! -- though the bride's white dress had a Star Wars touch with handmade X-wing starfighters on it.

No word yet if the couple is planning on a honeymoon to a galaxy far, far away.
