On Saturday, Orange is the New Black‘s Samira Wiley married her fianc├â┬⌐e Lauren Morelli in a sweet ceremony in Palm Springs, CA. And it sounds like it was the wedding of the season, as Martha Stewart Weddings revealed the twosome’s ceremony was confetti themed AND that they also walked up the aisle to Montell Jordan‘s This Is How We Do It.

YASSSSS. It seems only right that the duo got married in Palm Springs as that’s where they got engaged back in 2016. Both ladies rocked custom Christian Siriano numbers for their nuptials. Specifically, Miz Wiley donned an off-the-shoulder white dress which featured a full skirt, whereas the OITNB writer wore a dapper pantsuit that had a long, flowing cape.


According to MSW, the newlyweds entered their reception to Justin Bieber‘s Baby. It’s said the reception was decorated with bright garlands and floral/citrus-themed center pieces. Talk about a dream wedding!

Apparently, Samira changed before she hit the dance floor with her new wife. That was probably a smart decision since their first dance featured an explosion of confetti. Full skirts + slippery confetti = a disaster waiting to happen!

We’re honestly so happy for Samira and Lauren, especially since their relationship has been under quite the microscope. In case you forgot, back in 2014, Miz Morelli revealed she was gay in an essay titled, While Writing for Orange Is the New Black, I Realized I Am Gay. In the piece, Lauren explained that she had divorced her husband of two years because of her revelation.

Not long after the essay dropped, Wiley and Morelli began dating. Everything happens for a reason, right??

Congrats again, you two!
