'Orange Is the New Black' Wedding: Samira Wiley & Lauren Morelli Got Married!

Samira Wiley, a star of "Orange Is the New Black," and Lauren Morelli, one of its writers, are officially hitched!

Martha Stewart Weddings reports the couple wed Saturday afternoon in what is described as an "intimate ceremony" in Palm Springs, California, before a group of friends and family.

People magazine reports Palm Springs holds special meaning for the couple; it is where Morelli proposed in October, presenting Wiley with a yellow-gold engagement ring adorned with an asscher-cut diamond.

Beth Helmstetter Events planned the "colorful, confetti-themed" wedding, which was designed to be "non-traditional." The ceremony was kicked off by an outdoor gathering officiated by Samira's parents, and both Montell Jordan's "This Is How We Do It" and Justin Bieber's "Baby" featured prominently in the afternoon's proceedings.

The women wore custom-made looks by Christian Siriano.

Samira and Lauren met on the set of "Orange Is the New Black," when Morelli was married to a man. Morelli left her husband after realizing she is a lesbian, writing about her experience for Identities.Mic.
