There's nothing like a love story to bring balance to the Force. When a Bay Area couple decided to get engaged the other day, they didn't just have a nice dinner with a ring hidden in the cake. Instead, they did some absolutely stunning Star Wars cosplay, as captured by photographer Michael James.

I love the fact that there's a whole story here — Jedi meets Sith, Jedi fights Sith, and eventually Jedi and Sith fall in love and start smooching and dancing. Star Wars weddings are pretty commonplace lately, but this is the first Star Wars engagement we've seen — and it's pretty lovely. Here are some of our favorite images, check out the rest over at Michael James Photo Studio. [Thanks Aris!]
