Misty Copeland is a married woman!

The ballerina married her love of 10 years, Olu Evans, on Sunday.

They wed at the gorgeous Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach,

via E! News:

An insider tells E! News it was a very romantic, “small and intimate wedding” with only 100 guests. We’re also told Copeland looked like an “ethereal goddess” in her gown designed by Inbal Dror, which she accessorized with shoes designed by Christian Louboutin.

The decorations included white and pink roses as well as pink hydrangeas.

Copeland previously spoke to E! News about her wedding, revealing she was hoping to keep it “classy” and “simple.”

“It’s interesting that I’m a ballerina, which is so girly and feminine and what every little girl dreams of,” she explained. “But it’s a character I’m playing, and that’s so much fun to be that. It’s, I guess, how people envision their wedding days, and that’s my life.”

She continued, “So I feel like I get to become a fairy princess on stage and wear incredible costumes and gowns to galas. So, for me, I just want to have a simple, as easy-going day as I can have and just not have it be a big show. I just want it to be simple and classy and not feel like I’m in a tutu.”

Congrats to the happy couple!
