Former New Jersey Senator Bill Bradley will give the bride away at the summer ceremony.
George became engaged to Mellody, head of the Chicago-based investment management firm Ariel Investments ltc and chairman of Ariel Mutual Funds, in January of this year.
It will be the first marriage for Mellody, 43, and the second for George, 68, who divorced first wife, film editor Marcia Lou Griffin in 1983 after 14 years of marriage.
A representative for Lucasfilm refused to confirm or deny details of the nuptials.
