“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!
