Photographer Ryan S. Burkett told The Huffington Post that the idea to take the "Star Wars"-inspired photo came from the groom, Rob Clarke, who had taken a similar photo with his best man on his cellphone earlier that week .

"I'm a huge 'Star Wars' fan and I had never done one so it did seem fitting." Burkett said. "They were a great couple and this seemed to fit the playfulness of them."

It took the group seven tries before they got the perfect jumping, mid-air shot.

But Burkett and the Clarkes aren't the first people to recreate this famous movie scene. In April 2013, a "Vadering" Internet meme began gaining popularity among "Star Wars" devotees, who shared photos of themselves using "The Force" to lift "victims" off the ground.
