"Let's give a Galactic shout out to Master George Lucas & his bride Melodie on this, their wedding day," Tweeted Samuel L. Jackson, while Ron Howard Tweeted that their ceremony "was a joy to behold."

"Bill Moyers service was beautiful, nothing short of profound. Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Lucas," Howard wrote.
