Mark Ballas' best man Derek Hough shares sweet message to friend after wedding
Derek Hough was proud to stand next to his best friend, Mark Ballas, as he said "I do" to BC Jean over the weekend.
The 31-year-old professional dancer paid tribute to his Dancing With the Stars pal in a sweet Instagram message posted on Sunday. "Such an honor to be the best man at my brother's wedding," Hough wrote after Ballas' wedding. "Witnessing their love be sealed under a beautiful Oak tree in front of family friends was such a special moment."
Hough then got poetic, adding: "Like the tree, may you Stand together tall and proud. May you always go out on a limb for one another, to stay grounded and dig your roots in deep so that you may weather any storm. And always continue to grow, stronger and higher, reaching towards the heavens. And to always enjoy the view. Love you two."
Ballas, 30, and Jean, 29, wed on Friday in a ceremony held in Malibu, California. Other members from the DWTS family in attendance included Hough's sister Julianne, Cheryl Burke and newly engaged couple Emma Slater and Sasha Farber.
"It's a local secret wedding thing. We are going to shuttle people to a private place," Jean shared with ET about the couple's wedding plans back in September. "And make it really intimate and special."
"Kind of one place, but [the guests] are going to end up at another," Ballas said. " No snapchat, no Instagrams, no phones. We want everyone to just be there."
