Among the guests were fellow filmmakers Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard. Van Morrison and Janelle Monae reportedly sang at the reception.

"It was a gathering of people who have known George and Mellody for a very long time," Lucas spokeswoman Lynne Hale told the Marin Independent Journal. "It was an extraordinary day filled with so much love."

Lucas, 69, and Hobson, 44, got engaged back in January after dating since 2006. George Lucas, who is one of the most successful filmmakers, created Star Wars and co-created Indiana Jones with Spielberg. Hobson is the president of financial company Ariel Investments and also serves as chairwoman of Dreamworks Animation.
