Misty Copeland is now a married woman!  The prima ballerina wed her longtime beau this weekend, and we've got the deets inside...

YBF ballerina Misty Copeland just twirled her way down the aisle at the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach to marry her beau of 10 years, Olu Evans.

E! News confirms Misty and Olu wed in front of 100 guests at their "small and intimate" ceremony on Sunday.  She walked down the aisle in an ethereal gown designed by Inbal Dror and shoes by Christian Louboutin.

The setting was decorated with pink and white hydrangeas.

The 33-year-old principal dancer for the American Ballet Theatre previously explained what she wanted her wedding to be.  She told E! News:

"It's interesting that I'm a ballerina, which is so girly and feminine and what every little girl dreams of," she explained. "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."

She continued, "So I feel like I get to become a fairy princess on stage and wear incredible costumes and gowns to galas. 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. I just want it to be simple and classy and not feel like I'm in a tutu."
