Star Wars fan Paula Gonzalez was in for a surprise in December at a showing of “Rogue One” at an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in San Antonio: Her now-fiance, Seve Lara, popped the question.

Review: The Force is with ‘Rogue One’

According to Gonzalez, the couple was preparing to take photos with some “Star Wars” characters when Lara dropped down on one knee.

And of course, the ring is Star Wars-themed, too — and it’s totally beautiful.

My ring is a beautiful BB8! And luckily I got my nails done thanks to my sister @kristina1228 😏😊

The story doesn’t end there: Alamo Drafthouse gifted the couple a complimentary bottle of champagne to celebrate the occasion, and a local artist gave them two of the Star Wars prints he was selling at the theater.
