Samira Wiley Weds Lauren Morelli
It’s official! “Orange is the New Black” star Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli, a writer for the show, tied the knot on Saturday (March 25) in Palm Springs.
The outdoor confetti-themed ceremony was officiated by Samira’s parents.
Via The Hollywood Reporter:
The couple both donned Christian Siriano during the confetti-themed celebration (the two love Funfetti cake) planned by Beth Helmstetter Events. Martha Stewart Weddings reports that Wiley and Morelli wanted their nupitals to be “fun, celebratory and non-traditional.”
The couple, who also got engaged in Palm Springs last year, walked down the aisle to Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It” and later entered their reception to Justin Bieber’s “Baby.” Guests dined at the reception which was decorated with colorful pattens including floral-and-citrus centerpieces, graphic black-and-white plates and mismatched glassware.
This is Samira Wiley’s first marriage and the second for Lauren Morelli, who divorced producer Steve Basilone in 2014 after realizing she was gay.
Congrats to the newlyweds!
