Allen Bricker must have been terrible during his dance lessons, because when he stepped on his newly wedded wife Jessica’s foot during their wedding first dance, she broke out the lightsabers.

In this video that went viral, the Brickers performed a big lightsaber battle in the middle of the wedding reception.

They had wanted to get married on Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you, and all) but couldn’t so they decided this stunt would be the next best thing.

“We wanted to get married on May 4, but Jessica’s mother wasn’t having a Thursday wedding, so May 6 was the best we could do,” Allen told Mashable.

“My little sister and new favorite brother are officially nerds,” Jessica’s brother, Jeremy Williams, joshed on Facebook. “They have practiced this first dance for months.”
