Along with clips that highlighted their love story, capturing the origin of their romance as lab partners and their love for Disney, it culminated under the theme park's Spaceship Earth attraction.

Gio described the mutual love for space and whimsy that got them to that point, and eventually kicked off the ceremony proper.

He then properly officiated the occasion for Brooke and Jared, completely walking them through their vows and thanking them for making his first wedding ceremony a success.
