You can call her Mrs. Misty!
Ballet dancer Misty Copeland married her longtime beau Olu Evans on July 31.
Us Weekly reports that the 33-year-old and her attorney groom had their wedding at the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach, California with 100 guests, and the scene was set with pink hydrangeas and white roses.
As for her wedding attire, the bride wore an Inbal Dror gown and Christian Louboutin shoes.
Just one year ago, the couple got engaged, and Misty was telling Vanity Fair about what she wanted from a wedding dress.
"I'd like to show my figure, somewhat — romantic and elegant. I don't think I want to go super poofy or anything like that," she said. "It's very different for a performer, a ballerina, someone who is on stage a lot and wears big costumes. So it's not like this is my chance to be that way, because that's something I do every day, almost. I want to feel like myself — but more beautiful than I do every day."
But 2015 wasn't just a special year for Misty because of her engagement. In June 2015, she made history as the first African American woman to become a principal dancer at New York City's American Ballet Theatre.
"It was like, it hasn't happened for 75 years. Why would it happen to me?" she said a month later to the 'Today' show. "And then, at the same time, it gave me even more of this fire that was like, 'I am carrying so many people with me and I can do this."
She also couldn't believe the fame that she was receiving.
"I just don't think of myself as a celebrity," she said. "I didn't expect it to be like that. It was really wild. I don't think anyone in the company or in the dance world — we were all kind of shocked. But I am giving people hope that you don't have to fit into this mold of what society has cut out for you to be in order to succeed."
Congrats to the now married ballerina just doesn't feel like enough to say.
