DWTS pro Ballas and singer BC Jean got engaged last year during the Thanksgiving weekend, so it's only fitting the two tied the knot during the special holiday this year. BC Jean wore a beautiful embroidered wedding dress with a bejeweled headpiece in true bohemian style, while the groom wore a dark green-blue suit. The two exchanged vows in front of 160 friends and family.
"It's a wild feeling," Ballas told People after saying "I do." "Your wedding is something you subconsciously prepare for your entire life. You wonder who it's going to be with, where it is going to be and how the ceremony and reception are going to be. Now it's finally here and happening. It's surreal. I just want to soak it all up because I just know I'm going to click my fingers and the whole evening will be over and I want to make sure I enjoy it."
After seeing the outpour of love from their friends and family, we're sure it was a night these two will never forget.
