So, cat's out of the bag... I'm a total nerd and I love it! I dig Harry Potter marathons (both reading and watching), pretty much any Disney movie, GOT, and Star Wars. Recently I had a couple reach out to me about how to incorporate their love of the galactic empire into their wedding ceremony, so I thought that they might not be alone in that! I came up with a list of quotes, vow ideas, and ceremony closers that might help you with your ceremony if you also want sprinkle a little stardust in your script!

May the Force be with us as we travel through the galaxy of life. I pledge to never turn to the Dark Side, but stand forever in the illumination of our love. Take my hand and stand with me for light and justice throughout our lives.
May the Force be strong with us all the days of our lives. There is good in you, I sense it. I pledge to you my love and companionship as long as I live.
In accordance with the signing of the peace treaty, may the record reflect that SPOUSE 1 and SPOUSE 2 have joined together in unity through the completion of this marriage ceremony.
