Orange is the New Black star Samira Wiley has married writer Lauren Morelli in an outdoor wedding held in Palm Springs, California at the same location where they got engaged.

The ceremony was officiated by Wiley’s parents—who are co-pastors of the Covenant Baptist United Church of Christ in Washington D.C.

The couple walked down the aisle to Montell Jordan’s "This Is How We Do It" and entered the reception hall to Justin Bieber’s "Baby".

The theme of the wedding was ‘confetti’ because of the pair’s love of Funfetti cake and the "idea that they wanted their day to feel fun, celebratory, and non-traditional," according to Martha Stewart Weddings

The couple first met on the set of the hit Netflix series Orange is the New Black with Morelli realising she was gay after she started writing for the show—drawing parallels between herself and main character Piper Chapman.

“I realised I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set,”Morelli wrote in an article on Mic in 2014. 


“It wasn't so much one thing, but the sum of many small details: how uncomfortable I felt around groups of lesbians or how I considered myself (shrug) a "not very sexual person." When considered alone, these seemed like little quirks that made me me.”

The couple got engaged in October 2016, sharing an adorable photo of themeslves on Instagram to the delight of their thousands of fans.
