The couple wed in front of 100 guests at the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach, California, with Copeland wearing an Inbal Dror gown and Christian Louboutin shoes, E! News reports.

The dancer previously told E! that she would opt for a "simple" wedding ceremony when the time came.

"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," said Copeland.

We hope your big day was just what you wanted, Misty and Olu.

Congratulations!
