PEKIN – On day three of Pekin's Star Wars themed Marigold Fest one man had the force on his side, because he mustered up the courage to ask one very important question.

Justin Hand and his girlfriend Jennifer Reiter were in line to get autographs from two star wars celebrities. Hand asked Tom Kane, the voice actor who played Yoda for a demonstration.  Kane asked Reiter if she would marry Hand, who then got down on one knee, hoping she would be the Princess Leia to his Han Solo. She said yes.

"I thought maybe he had like, banter that he did with, you know, people who are obviously couples and that, but I didn't really fully get it until he started to reach into his pocket and I'm like, oh my God this is happening!" Reiter said.

The couple says they are both Star Wars fans, happy that ‘Yoda’ could be part of their special day.
