What should you do when you can’t decide between two of your favorite things? Combine them, you must.

For their nuptials, Austin, Texas–based couple Caitlin and Leo paired a The Great Gatsby party atmosphere with Star Wars details—and we have to say, we think Jay Gatsby himself (with some droid guests, of course) would be pretty stoked to attend this shindig.

Some of our favorite highlights: the bride’s art-deco-style, beaded, V-neck gown; the groom’s bounty hunter and stormtrooper ceremony escorts; a newlywed lightsaber battle on the dance floor; Star Wars table names (Death Star, Tatooine—you get the picture); and the couple's gorgeous venue, The Ballroom at Church Street in Orlando.

Scroll down to see more photos, old sport.
