The marriage ceremony was attended by 100 people and took place at the Montage Hotel in front of the beautiful beach at that location.
An E! News correspondent said that the marriage ceremony had an “intimate setting.” Copeland wore a dress designed by Inbal Dror and her shoes were designed by Christian Louboutin. White and pink roses were a part of the decorations and pink hydrangeas also were also a part of the decor.
The 33-year-old Copeland to E! News that she wanted to keep her marriage ceremony “classy and simple.”
“It’s interesting that I’m a ballerina, which is so girly and feminine and what every little girl dreams of,” Copeland told E! News.
“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.
Copeland went on to say that she wanted to play a specific role in the setting of her special marriage ceremony.
“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,” Copeland told E! News.
“I just want it to be simple and classy and not feel like I’m in a tutu,” she continued.
Congratulations to Misty Copeland on her fabulous career and romantic new marriage!
