Orange Is the New Black
actress Samira Wiley and show writer Lauren Morelli tied the knot on Saturday afternoon in Palm Springs, California. As reported by Martha Stewart Weddings
, the pair -- who met on the set of the hit Netflix series -- celebrated their nuptials with a confetti-themed bash inspired by their shared love of Funfetti cake.
Wiley, 29, announced the wedding on Instagram with a stunning snap and the hashtag, "#aboutlastnight," while Morelli posted the same photo with the words, "Wifeys for lifey."
Surrounded by their family and friends, the two donned custom white Christian Siriano ensembles and wed in the same Palm Springs location where Morelli proposed last year, presenting Wiley with an asscher-cut diamond engagement ring.
The fun-filled ceremony included non-traditional, upbeat tunes such as Montell Jordan's "This Is How We Do It" throughout the recessional and Justin Bieber's "Baby" during the couple's grand entrance. Accented with an explosive blast of confetti during the newlyweds' first dance, the colorful reception boasted garlands, strands of lights and vibrant floral centerpieces.
Morelli was previously married, but she divorced her husband after coming out as a lesbian while writing for the comedy-drama series. The storyline between Piper Chapman and ex-girlfriend Alex Vause was the catalyst that pushed the writer to come out after only being married for a short time.
"I was nervous about the first love scene I'd written for Alex and Piper," Morelli wrote in an online essay
. "I was so deep in my own self-doubt that I constantly felt like a fraud. I was married to a man, but I wasn't straight. I found a mouthpiece for my own desires and a glimmer of what my future could look like."
Morelli and Wiley, who played Poussey in the series, made their red-carpet debut as a couple during the 2014 Emmy Awards.
Orange Is the New Black will return for Season 5 on Friday, June 9. Watch the video below for more on the hit Netflix series.
