Misty Copeland is now married.

The famous ballerina tied the knot with her partner of 10 years, attorney Olu Evans, in front of 100 guests at the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach, Calif. on Sunday, reports E! News. A rep for Copeland did not immediately respond to The Hollywood Reporter's request for comment.

An insider tells the entertainment news site that Copeland, 33, walked down the aisle in a gown by Israeli designer Inbal Dror and Christian Louboutin heels. 

Copeland first confirmed her engagement to Evans in the September 2015 issue of Essence.

Copeland — who made history when she became the first African-American woman to be promoted to principal dancer with the American Ballet Theater — has much to celebrate lately. The American ballet dancer recently announced that she would be joining the Disney's Nutcracker movie, playing the lead ballerina role in the sole dance sequence in the film, titled The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.
