“Orange Is the New Black” goes white wedding dresses! Actress Samira Wiley married Lauren Morelli this past weekend in Palm Springs, CA after being engaged for the past six months.
As you may remember, Wiley and Morelli met and fell in love on the set of OITNB. Morelli is a writer, editor and producer of the hit Netflix show, while Wiley played Poussey. The couple posted pictures online right after their engagement.
“I went through it all on set: I fell in love with a woman, and I watched my life play out on screen…It feels liberating and appropriate to live my life in front of you,” Morelli wrote at the time.
According to Martha Stewart Weddings, the marriage celebration was confetti-themed and the newlyweds’ first dance included an “explosive blast of confetti.”
Wiley posted photos online of the two in their Christian Sirano wedding outfits.
Martha Stewart Weddings also reported: “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.”
Congrats to the brides! Poussey, we miss you on OITNB!
