Orange Is The New Black’s Samira Wiley Marries Lauren Morelli

Orange Is The New Black Samira Wiley Marries Lauren Morelli

At last, a happy ending for Poussey.

Samira Wiley, the actress who played the plucky German-speaking character in prison dramedy ‘Orange Is The New Black’, and show writer Lauren Morelli, got married over the weekend.

According to Martha Stewart Weddings, the non-traditional, confetti-themed wedding took place in Palm Springs, California.

Instead of a priest, Wiley’s parents officiated the ceremony. And our personal favourite part about the whole event: the procession up the aisle danced in to Montell Jordan’s ‘This Is How We Do It’.


Both ladies wore custom Christian Siriano gowns.

Martha Stewart Weddings shared this gorgeous snap of the happy couple ahead of an upcoming feature on the wedding.

Wiley and Morelli met on the set of the HBO show. Morelli was married, and divorced her husband of two years in 2014 after realising she was gay.

She came out in an essay later the same year.
