OITNB actress Samira Wiley and writer Lauren Morelli just got hitched

Orange is the New Black (OITNB) power couple Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli broke the news that they are now officially wed with a photo of the two on Instagram captioned simply “#aboutlastnight.”

Wiley’s parents, co-pastors of the first black Baptist church to perform same-sex union ceremonies in Washington, D.C., officiated the ceremony.

The couple met on the set of OITNB where Wiley starred as an inmate named Poussey Washington and Morelli serves as a writer and producer. Morelli has said she didn’t come out to herself until after starting work on the show, which features a diverse cast including lesbian, bisexual, and transgender women. She met and fell in love with Poussey and ultimately divorced her then-husband.

Wiley and Morelli got engaged back in October.
