OITNB’s Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli Just Got Hitched in the Dreamiest Wedding Designs Ever
From super trendy acrylic invites to pastel decor and mermaid-inspired details, we’re ALL about weddings here at Brit + Co HQ. Needless to say, we could barely contain our excitement when we learned that Orange Is the New Black lovebirds Samira Wiley (who plays Poussey Washington) and Lauren Morelli (a writer for the show) tied the knot in the same spot where they got engaged in Palm Springs on Saturday.
Martha Stewart Weddings confirmed the exciting news by sharing the first official snap from the nuptials, which shows the beaming couple looking beyond stunning in custom Christian Siriano creations — both Wiley and Morelli are huge fans of the designer, and were recently snapped in the front row of his show during New York Fashion Week.
While Wiley wore a princess-worthy off-the-shoulder gown, Morelli left us in awe with a pantsuit that came complete with a superhero-like cape (excuse us while we pick our jaws up off the floor). The confetti-themed wedding (inspired by the couple’s love of Funfetti cake) was planned by Beth Helmstetter of Beth Helmstetter Events and shot by wedding photog Jose Villa, according to Martha Stewart Weddings.
The day kicked off with an outdoor ceremony that was officiated by Samira’s parents, and, after the “I Do”s were said, the couple walked back up the aisle to — get this — Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It.” They then made their grand reception entrance to an equally amazing track, Justin Bieber’s “Baby.” How cute!
Family and friends enjoyed their dinner under “colorful garlands and strands of lights, with vibrant floral-and-citrus centerpieces dotting wood tables set with graphic black-and-white plates, sleek white-and-gold flatware, and colorful, mismatched glassware.”
Last but not least, there was the first dance: The happy duo danced beneath a huge explosion of confetti to the delight of their admiring guests.
Sounds like a dream come true to us! Congratulations, you two!
