This Photo Of Samira Wiley And Lauren Morelli On Their Wedding Day Might Be The Most Beautiful Thing You’ll Ever See

This is Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli.

They are super in love.

In the fall of 2016, Lauren proposed to Samira because there is good in the world, after all.

And now, the two are officially MARRIED. Are you ready to see their first wedding pic from their celebration in Palm Springs? No, really, you need to prepare yourself for the level of gorgeousness that is about to radiate off your screen.

R U KIDDING ME? My mom always said “Everyone is perfect” but that woman obviously lied because THIS is actual perfection.

THAT DRESS AND THAT CAPED JUMPSUIT.

Both wore custom designs by Christian Siriano.

And since your invitation def got lost in the mail, Martha Stewart Weddings gave some details about the big day:
The afternoon began with an outdoor ceremony officiated by Samira’s parents (with a recession up the aisle to Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It”) and continued with the newlyweds making a grand entrance to the reception as Justin Bieber’s “Baby” played.

So, yeah, it sounds like THE party of the year.

Congratulations, you two!!!

Orange Is the New Black's Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli Are Married

It’s official: Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli are married!

On Saturday afternoon, the Orange Is the New Black star, 29, tied the knot with her longtime partner in an intimate Palm Springs, California, ceremony surrounded by family and friends, PEOPLE can confirm.

As revealed to Martha Stewart Weddings, who were the first to report the news, the nuptials were designed and executed by Beth Helmstetter Events, the confetti-themed bash — based in part on the couple’s desire for a non-traditional event and their mutual affection for Pillsbury Funfetti cake.

Wiley’s parents officiated the ceremony, according to the magazine, and their music choice was perfect for pop music fans — their recessional was “This Is How We Do It” by Montell Jordan and their reception entrance jam was Justin Bieber’s “Baby.”

The newly minted spouses were both outfitted by Christian Siriano. Guests dined amid centerpieces of flowers and citrus fruits, garlands, sparkling light strands and mismatched glassware. During the brides’ first dance, a blast of — what else? — confetti enhanced the beautiful moment.

The nuptials’ Palm Springs location was special to the couple, as it was where the OITNB writer popped the question in October with a dazzling yellow-gold engagement ring featuring an asscher-cut diamond.

Wiley previously told PEOPLE that Morelli was more involved in the wedding planning than her.

“I just sort of want to sit back and be like, yeah sure, whatever. Yeah, I don’t care. Yeah yeah yeah,” she said.

Morelli was previously married and split from her husband after she realized she was gay while writing for the hit Netflix series. She penned an essay on Identities.Mic at the time detailing her experience. “I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set,” she wrote.

“Accordingly, I was nervous about the first love scene I’d written for Alex and Piper,” she explained. “I loved writing it, loved watching a tenderness emerge in their relationship where passion always seemed to be the ruling principle, but by that time, I was so deep in my own self-doubt that I constantly felt like a fraud.”

Morelli told Out magazine in December that although she was open with her husband and they tried couples therapy, the issue was obviously not something fixable within their relationship — and that Wiley became a source of comfort in figuring out her next steps.


“Samira became my outlet, and through that process I fell in love with her,” she said. “But I thought, This will be the one that got away. Being with her felt too good to be true.”

Later, almost two years after she began dating Wiley, Morelli planned to propose right before they headed out for the vacation so they could use the time in Palm Springs to celebrate the engagement.

“I found a ring, they shipped it to me,” Morelli added to Out of their engagement. “I was so nervous and terrified she knew it was coming, but she was so shocked that I couldn’t get her to stop crying.”


‘Orange Is The New Black’ Star Samira Wiley And Writer Lauren Morelli Get Married

The confetti was surely flying during this particular wedding day!

“Orange Is the New Black” star Samira Wiley on Saturday married her longtime girlfriend, Lauren Morelli, in a special ceremony celebrating their mutual love for Pillsbury Funfetti cake, Martha Stewart Weddings reports. The nontraditional, confetti-themed nuptials took place in Palm Springs, California.

Wiley’s parents officiated the ceremony, which began with a procession up the aisle to Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It.” The actress and Morelli, who is a writer on the Netflix series, wore custom Christian Siriano ensembles, with Wiley changing her look before hitting the dance floor to Justin Bieber’s “Baby.”

Martha Stewart Weddings shared a 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 the happy couple!
