Misty Copeland marries longtime boyfriend Olu Evans


After 10 years of dating, ballerina Misty Copeland has finally tied the knot with her boyfriend Olu Evans, according to People magazine. 

Copeland, 33, announced her engagement to Evans in the September 2015 issue of Essence. 

In April, Copeland told people about her plans for her summer wedding. 

"I'm super busy so I have amazing people taking care of a lot of stuff," Copeland told People. 

I think I'm a pretty simple girl, so I like for there to be no drama. I just want to enjoy the day, and not have it be about the preparation.
Copeland told People

Instead of focusing on all the small details, the first African-American principal dancer for the American Ballet Theatre, said she just wanted her wedding to be fun. 

The couple said their "I dos" in front of 100 guests at the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach, California.

According to E! News, Copeland wore an Inbal Dror gown.
