George Lucas Was Unable to Attend

Duncan Thomson, 41, and Sammi Gardiner, 39, were married in a Star Wars-themed wedding on May 4th in the UK.

Why May 4, you ask? So they could use the phrase, "May the 4th be with you." According to the Telegraph, Mr. Thomson told his wife: 
"I promise to protect you from carbon freezing and promise to protect you from the Dark Side, through hyperspace and into the far reaches of the galaxy."
They sent invites to George Lucas, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford, but the only response came from George, who said he was unable to attend.  

I can just hear George Lucas telling to his publicist, "Yeah right - me go to THAT geekfest?! I've got a rep to protect. Send them a basket of Star Wars Pez figures and call it a day."
