Forget orange; it looks like married is the new black for former ‘Orange Is the New Black’ actress Samira Wiley and her new wife, writer Lauren Morelli

The pair, who began dating in 2014 while both were working on OITNB, were glowing as they exchanged vows surrounded by family and friends in Palm Springs, Calif. on Saturday.  Wiley’s parents served as officiants, and the two stunning brides pledged their forever love wearing custom white Christian Soriano. The ceremony ended with Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It” as the recessional.

The colorful confetti-themed celebration, which came to be because of the couple’s love of Funfetti cake, continued with the newlyweds making a grand entrance to the reception as Justin Bieber’s “Baby” played. And in keeping with the fun, nontraditional theme, the couple’s first dance was accented by an explosive blast of confetti.

Wiley took to her Instagram to let the world know her status had officially changed, and she even showed off a cute card from fellow OITNB co-star Danielle Brooks.
