Misty Copeland, Olu Evans
Congratulations, Misty Copeland!
The famous ballerina—who is known for breaking body stereotypes in the dance world—tied the knot Sunday with her longtime beau, Olu Evans.
E! News can confirm that pair, who have been together for 10 years, got married at the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach, overlooking the ocean in a gorgeous ceremony.
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.”
Well, it looks like she got just that! Congratulations to the couple on their special day!
