Just give Derek Hough a perfect score already.

After Mark Ballas and BC Jean exchanged vows Friday evening near Los Angeles, Dancing With the Stars fans may have thought the celebrations would be over by Sunday.

But before the Thanksgiving weekend came to a close, Mark's best man decided to share a few thoughtful words about a bride and groom he has grown to love and admire.

"Such an honor to be the best man at my brother's wedding. Witnessing their love be sealed under a beautiful oak tree in front of family friends was such a special moment," Derek wrote to his Instagram followers Sunday afternoon. "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," he continued. "And always continue to grow, stronger and higher reaching towards the heavens . And to always enjoy the view. Love you two."

Anybody else need a moment? Imagine what the speech was like at the reception.

Friday's celebration planned by celebrity events planner David Tutera was a DWTS family affair as familiar faces including Sharna Burgess, Val Chmerkovskiy, Cheryl Burke, Emma Slater and Sasha Farber attended.

Guest Julianne Hough also gave fans a glimpse into the couple's bond on and off any stage in a separate Instagram post.

"Couldn't be happier for these friends of mine! BC you are truly the most beautiful and hilarious Hippie Queen there ever was," she shared. "Mark, you now get to put your undeniable loyalty, friendship and love in to this woman's heart every single day. Your hopeless romantic self has finally been set free! Best wedding weekend EVER!!!!! Love you both so much!"

While fans may be hoping for a honeymoon in the near future, all signs point to Mark returning to New York City as he continues his run as Frankie Valli in Broadway's Jersey Boys. But don't worry, there's plenty of love to go around. 

"Knowing that I am going to spend the rest of my days with BC gives me more comfort than anything else ever could," Mark recently shared on Instagram. "She is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I can't wait for our life ahead."
