Congratulations are in order for Orange Is the New Black star Samira Wiley and her fiancée Lauren Morelli, as the pair officially married over the weekend.

Samira, who played Poussey in the Netflix drama series for four seasons, married fiancé and OITNB staff writer Lauren, after getting engaged last year.

Martha Stewart Weddings confirmed the pair tied the knot in an intimate Palm Springs, California ceremony surrounded by family and friends over the weekend.

The confetti-themed bash was inspired by the pair's desire for a non-traditional event, thus their recessional was 'This Is How We Do It' by Montell Jordan.

Because, really, why not?

Wiley's parents officiated the ceremony, while both of the brides were kitted out in stunning Christian Siriano dresses - and to make the whole thing even cuter, the wedding took place in the same location where Wiley proposed.

Lauren and Samira's relationship made headlines back in 2014 when their relationship first went public after Lauren and her husband of two years filed for divorce.

The pair met on the set and in an essay penned at the time of the controversy, Lauren explained how working on Orange Is the New Black helped her come out.

Samira can next be seen in Hulu's upcoming TV adaptation of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale.

The show, which also stars Elisabeth Moss and Alexis Bledel dropped its first full-length trailer earlier this week, and will air its first episode on April 26.

Until then - congrats, guys!
