by on

Famous ballerina Misty Copeland wed longtime beau Olu Evans on Sunday in Laguna Beach, Calif.

The couple dated for 10 years before tying the knot at the Montage Hotel during an intimate ceremony overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

According to E! news, Copeland wanted their nuptials to be classy and simple, unlike when she’s dancing on-stage.

“It’s interesting that I’m a ballerina, which is so girly and feminine and what every little girl dreams of,” she explained to E! previously. “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.”mistycopeland2f-1-web

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.”

One hundred guests attended the intimate wedding.

Copeland wore an ethereal gown designed by Inbal Dror. She completed the bridal look with a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes.

White and pink roses, as well as pink hydrangeas decorated the wedding.
