Over the weekend, financial expert Mellody Hobson married famed film director George Lucas.  Get the deets on their star-studded wedding inside....

 

This weekend, ABC News contributor Mellody Hobson walked down the aisle with her long time man Star Wars creator George Lucas. PEOPLE Magazine confirmed that the nuptials took place on Saturday at 5pm before an intimate gathering at George's Skywalker Ranch in Marin County, California.

According to the HuffPost, the ceremony was officiated by journalist Bill Moyers, who quoted the 13th-century Persian poet Rumi: "When I heard my first love story, I was thinking of you."   And during the reception, Steven Spielberg gave the toast from the groom's side, joking that The Force had a name: Mellody. And John W. Rogers an executive at Ariel Investments, spoke on behalf of the bride. Also, director Francis Ford Coppola read a poem by Maya Angelou.

Singer Van Morrison flew in from Ireland to entertain the guest alongside Janelle Monae, who also performed.

Mellody was walked down the aisle by former New Jersey Senator Bill Bradley, whom she's known since she was 17. Bill also gave a toast before the cake-cutting ceremony.

Mellody wore a white dress by Peter Soronen and changed skirts between the ceremony and the party. George's son, Jett, was his best man, and his daughters, Katie and Amanda, were bridesmaids.

The ceremony was attended by some of Hollywood's A-list, including actor Samuel Jackson who tweeted,

And director Ron Howard, who star in George's 1973 film American Graffititweeted that the ceremony "was a joy to behold." Adding, "Bill Moyers service was beautiful, nothing short of profound. Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Lucas."

The couple, who met at a business conference in 2006, got engaged in January of this year.  And though Mellody walks into the relationship with a nice little nest egg of her own, let's not forget the Red Tails director sold his television and film production company, Lucasfilm Ltd., to the Walt Disney Company for $4.05 billion in October 2012.  We guess he's ready to enter a new phase in life.  And we're sure Mellody knows EXACTLY where to put all those coins.

I mean its their money! Just because Beyonce and Jay Z are black doesn't mean they owe black people anything. If you come into some money feel free to spend it deworming orphans in Somalia or use it to wipe your ass instead of using toilet paper. Shouldn't matter to anybody cause it would YOUR money!

But this article isn't about "crusty white dudes that care about giving back MORE than the Carters"...it's about two people getting married--That's it!. You (and some other posters) brought the Carters into it as with every other non-related post. I know this is celebrity blog and you get your kicks out of posting crazy stuff (some I do find funny), but your obsession with Beyonce and JZ is just very bizarre to me. But never mind me, I was just making an observation, so carry on.
