Orange is the New Black actress Samira Wiley is now a married woman! Wiley wedded her girlfriend, Lauren Morelli, on Saturday, March 25, in a confetti-themed wedding in Palm Springs.
The pair, who got engaged in October of last year, walked down the aisle wearing custom designs by Christian Siriano. The wedding was officiated by Wiley’s parents.
The lesbian couple had met on the set of their show and began dating in 2014. Wiley announced their engagement in 2016 on Instagram with a pic of herself showing off a diamond ring and a simple caption - “Yes”.
While this is the first for Wiley, her writer bride was married before...to a man! Morelli, who is a writer for Orange is the New Black, divorced her husband, producer Steve Basilone, in 2014 after she came to the realization that she was gay in the fall of 2012.
Wiley had helped her deal with the difficult process of couples therapy. Morelli penned a heartfelt essay for Identities.Mic in 2014 about how her now wife and the cast of OITNB helped her in coming out.
