George and MelodyGeorge Lucas and Melody Hobson were married Saturday in a ceremony that guest Ron Howard described as a “joy to behold”.  Also among the attendees was Samuel L. Jackson who tweeted “Let’s give a Galactic shout out to Master George Lucas & his bride Melodie on this, their wedding day”.

The news took most of the public by surprise as the wedding was expected to be held in Chicago on June 29, but George Lucas does have a way with delivering surprises.  The ceremony was conducted somewhere in Marin County, California at Lucas’s Skywalker Ranch.  Bill Moyers officiated, prompting Ron Howard to tweet that it was “…beautiful, nothing short of profound.  congrats to Mr. & Mrs. Lucas.”

Update:  You can read more details on the wedding at HuffPost Celebrity.
