Congratulations are in order for Misty Copeland and Olu Evans! The American Ballet Theater principal dancer and her longtime partner married on Sunday, People confirms.

According to reports, the intimate wedding took place at the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach, Calif., for which Copeland looked every part the blushing bride in a dress designed by Inbal Dror and shoes by Christian Louboutin.

The ballerina first announced her engagement in 2015, revealing to Essence that she was set to wed her boyfriend of more than 10 years: Evans, who is an attorney as well as actor Taye Diggs’s cousin.

But don’t think that the tutu-wearing dancer had an all-frills ceremony: Copeland told People earlier this year that she was looking forward to uncomplicated, stress-free nuptials. “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,” she said.
