Famous Ballerina Dancer Misty Copeland Marries Partner of 10 Years Olu Evans

Famous Ballerina Dancer Misty Copeland Marries Partner of 10 Years Olu EvansThe couple was married at the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach, Calif., on Sunday, multiple outlets reported. Copeland, 33, is a dancer for the American Ballet Theatre.

Congratulations are in order for Misty Copeland!

The ballerina wed her longtime boyfriend, Olu Evans Sunday, July 31 in Laguna Beach, California.

The 33-year-old and her new husband have been together for over 10 years and had a beautiful ceremony near the ocean.

A source told E! News, it was a “small and intimate wedding” with only 100 guests. Her gown was designed by Inbal Dror and she wore Christian Louboutin shoes.

The dancer — who became the first African American woman to be principal ballerina in the American Ballet Theater — has always hoped her wedding would be low-key.

“It’s interesting that I’m a ballerina, which is so girly and feminine and what every little girl dreams of,” she said before her big day.

“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.”

The New York City resident got exactly what she wanted out of her big day — to “not feel like I’m in a tutu.”

“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.”

We hope you got all you wanted and more on your special day, Misty!
