WACO, Texas (KWTX) "May the Fourth be with you."

A popular saying among the Star Wars fan community, as the day (May 4th) is used to celebrate the famous film franchise.

Stephen Lacroix and his fiancee today seemed like the perfect day to get married.

The couple is a part of the 501st Legion, a Star Wars themed charity, and have always been huge fans of the films.

After years of preparation, the Austin couple set the date for May 4th, 2019 in the Waco Palladium.

"It's simply amazing, spent a lot of hard time and work building the set and all the other things that were built for this," says the groom Stephen Lacroix.

Lacroix says they chose to do the wedding in Waco so they could be close to family.

Everyone in the wedding wore Star Wars character costumes.
