Congratulations are in order for Misty Copeland!

The superstar ballerina is now a married woman, E! News has confirmed. Copeland wed her longtime beau Olu Evans on Sunday at the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach, California overlooking the ocean. The couple has been together for 10 years.

A source told E! the "small and intimate wedding" was something special with only 100 guests. Misty looked like an "ethereal goddess" in her Inbal Dror gown. The decor for the ceremony was said to be white and pink, with pink roses and pink hydrangeas.

Speaking with E! previously about her big day, she said, "It's interesting that I'm a ballerina, which is so girly and feminine and what every little girl dreams of. But it's a character I'm playing, and that's so much fun to be that. I guess, how people envision their wedding days, and that's my life."
