Samira Wiley, the star of "Orange Is The New Black" Season 6, has married her partner Lauren Morelli. They both first met each other on the set of the Netflix original drama series.

Wiley and Morelli officially tied the knot over the weekend at Palm Springs, California. It is said that the "Orange Is The New Black" Season 6 star's parents officiated the ceremony. They also got married in the same place they got engaged six months ago, according to the BBC News.

For the wedding day, the "Orange Is The New Black" Season 6 actress and writer wore custom white outfits that were designed and made by Christian Siriano. Morelli donned a sleek pantsuit which was embellished with a cape. Wiley, on the other hand, wore a plain off-shoulder gown for the special occasion.

The newlyweds celebrated their entrance towards married life with a confetti-themed party, which served as a tribute to their shared love for Funfetti cakes. The "Orange Is The New Black" Season 6 actress and writer also opted for songs namely "Baby" by Canadian singer-songwriter Justin Bieber and "This Is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan instead of going for the traditional wedding music, according to TV Guide.

Former "Orange Is The New Black" Season 6 star Wiley appeared on the first four seasons of the show, playing the character named Poussey Washington. Since then, the actress has appeared in numerous shows such as "You're The Worst" from FXX and is set to appear on Hulu's adaptation of "The Handmaid's Tale."

Morelli, when she first wrote for the earlier seasons of "Orange Is The New Black" Season 6, was married at that time. It was only on her fist few days on the set when she later realized that she was actually gay. She came out publicly in 2014, parting ways with her husband before starting a relationship with Wiley.
