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, exchanged vows in a ceremony held in Malibu, California on Friday.

We are going to shuttle people to a private place," Jean told ET about the wedding plans back in September. "And make it really intimate and special."
