‘Orange Is The New Black’ star Samira Wiley ties the knot in D.C

After announcing their engagement last October, Orange Is The New Black star Samira Wiley and writer Lauren Morelli have gotten married.

The 29-year-old actress, who played Poussey Washington on the Netflix original series, married her long-term partner in a small ceremony with family and friends.

The wedding ceremony was confetti themed and was based at least in part on their desire to have a non-traditional wedding.

The event was officiated by Wiley’s parents, Christine and Dennis W. Wiley, the co-pastors of Covenant Baptist United Church of Christ in Washington, D.C.

They got married in Palm Springs, where Morelli, the OINTB writer, proposed with a glittering engagement ring.

Morelli discussed proposing with Out Magazine in December. She said the pair was enjoying a weekend getaway when, “I realized I could propose right before and then we’d have the weekend there to celebrate,” before going on to say, “I found a ring, and they shipped it to me, and it was as if someone had handed me a ball of fire and said, ‘Here, tend to this.’”

Morelli has been married in the past and divorced her husband after coming to the realization she was gay while writing for the show.
