Congratulations are in order for Orange Is The New Black Star Samira Wiley and her longtime girlfriend/ OITNB Writer Lauren Morelli. The two tied the knot on Saturday March 25th in a Palm Springs ceremony celebrating their shared love for Funfetti cake, Martha Stewart Weddings reports.
Wiley’s parents officiated the ceremony, which began with a recession up the aisle to Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It.” The pair wore custom Christian Siriano ensembles, with Wiley making a quick outfit change before hitting the dance floor to Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby’.

Martha Stewart Weddings shared the first exclusive photo from the event on Instagram and will feature the wedding in an upcoming issue.
Wiley and Morelli met while on the set of “OITNB.” Morelli divorced her husband of two years in 2014 after realizing she was gay while shooting the show. She came out in a Mic essay that same year, and subsequently began dating Wiley.
“Samira became my outlet,” Morelli told Out magazine in December, “and through that process I fell in love with her. But I thought, This will be the one that got away. Being with her felt too good to be true.”
Congrats to them both!
The 5th season of OITNB premieres June 9th on Netflix
