'Orange Is the New Black' Star Samira Wiley Is Married!

Published March 26, 2017

Orange Is the New Black star Samira Wiley and her partner Lauren Morelli, a writer on the show, officially tied the knot on Saturday in Palm Springs, California. From the looks of it, it was a beautiful ceremony and the couple were surrounded by their closest family and friends. 

The two announced their engagement last October in an adorable Instagram announcement, and the pictures from their wedding are equally heartwarming.

According to Martha Stewart Weddings, the wedding had a funfetti theme, based on the couple's desire to host a non-traditional affair — and their mutual love for Pillsbury Funfetti cake. To make the wedding even more memorable, Wiley's parents officiated the ceremony.

Their gowns were certainly more traditional than the theme, as the happy couple looked stunning in custom Christian Siriano wedding gowns.

The location of the wedding was also special to the couple, as it was the same place that Morelli first proposed to Wiley back in October.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
