Literal angels sent to us via Orange Is The New Black, Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli, have been a beacon of hope in a cruel, dark world for some time now. These two aesthetically pleasing human sunbeams have been smiling at each other publicly since 2014 and engaged since last October, making them the only positive force and last remaining hope in our lives. Because they are perfect, Samira and Lauren designed a Funfetti-themed wedding in Palm Springs Saturday afternoon, and did so with an exclusive spread in Martha Stewart Weddings (as one does). It is the second marriage for Morelli and the first for Wiley. Before you melt into a puddle on the floor, gaze upon these two gorgeous humans and the positively adorable way they look at each other:
Imagine, for a moment, what it would be like to marry Samira Wiley. If you envisioned both of you wearing custom Christian Siriano outfits and your bridal party dancing up the aisle to Montell Jordan’s romantic masterpiece “This Is How We Do It,” you are 100% accurate (but also too late, because now she’s married to Lauren. Sorry buddy.). The outdoor affair was officiated by Samira’s parents and planned by Beth Helmsetter Events; the couple entered their reception to Justin Bieber’s “Baby” and set off confetti during their first dance. If you would like to know more about the decorations, centerpieces and flatware used during the reception, Martha’s got you covered.
Everything was Lauren and Samira and nothing hurt.
omg this was like THE LAST thing i expected to see at 9:37 pm on a Saturday night while aimlessly scrolling on my phone in an effort to avoid brushing my teeth and getting ready for bed
Thank you Stef for bringing us this important breaking news. Your commitment is remarkable
and I repeat, FUNFETTI THEMED!?!?!?!??!!!! ??*swoon*
go big or go home
aint it the truth
What is Funfetti? Is it like really really great confetti?
Yes! Because it’s edible. And edible things are always more fun.
a pantsuit with a MOTHERFUCKING TRAIN oh my goddess
I’M SO MAD ABOUT THIS OUTFIT
i just told rachel i would look like a fucking napkin ring in that outfit
she looks like a fucking princess.
A napkin ring!!! My word, I’m cackling at that.
She looks like a MATRIMONY SUPERHERO
… Which I guess is fitting for the person lucky enough to marry Samira Wiley.
what a LOOK!??!?!!!!!!!!
Now that’s bold
that ain’t no motherfuckin’ train that is a motherfuckin’ CAPE and I love everything about that outfit.
I’m the praise emoji!!!
the Montell Jordan song.
AAAHHHHH THEY BOTH LOOK SO BEAUTIFUL AND HAPPY
this is pure and good; my crops are watered, my skin is clear, my anxiety is cured
This picture represents a major shift in my life…like…more than it does for them probably
+1 for crops are watered
I DON’T KNOW HOW TO PROCESS THIS OH MY GOD BLESS
They both look amazing!!! Congrats to them.
Samira’s dress is absolutely stunning
They both look so happy, it’s wonderful to see them get married because I followed this relationship from the beginning.
I truly wish them all the best.
guess my invitation got lost in the mail…cool, cool, cool.
ACTUAL PERFECT HUMANS
I had two thoughts on their wedding outfits:
1.If I would have worn Samira’s dress, it would’ve taken me the entirety of 90 seconds before I would have spilled something on it. It’s just so perfectly and flawlessly white!
Otherwise, beautiful, simple cut.
2.Lauren’s outfit looks handcrafted by the elves of Middle Earth (=High Nerd Praise) Very special and beautiful and she totally rocks it.
Such a beautiful couple and beautiful pictures!
All the happiness to them both! <3
Let them rule the world and guide us to the lesbian utopia we deserve!
What an absolutely beautiful and delightful, joyful sweet precious wonderful happy nice.
I like that you seem so overcome, you just started leaking adjectives.
Everything about this wedding is perfect, especially that fucking caped pantsuit and This is how we do it.
I really hope love isn’t a lie for them
this is everything i love in one spot. funfetti, samira, MARTHA STEWART WEDDINGS?????, wedding pantsuits with capes.
it’s too much stef; it’s too much.
Agreed Alaina, agreed.
YOU GUYS IT TURNS OUT THAT LOVE IS NOT A LIE!!!!!!!
Wow they are really gorgeous!
Because I was recently a bridesmaid, who had the gall to design a bridal outfit that’s harder to pee in than a poofy marshmallow dress!? In a normal pantsuit, you’d just take it down, but with this one it looks like you’d have to pull the cape over your head and mess up your hair and makeup and then it’d just be laying in bathroom filth. But in terms of styling, 10/10, they both look amazing, Lauren Morello to play matrimonial Emma Frost for ever and always.
Maybe there’s a zipper under the waistband? Maybe there’s a secret onesie-style butt flap hidden behind the cape?
I vote for the butt flap! But(t) seriously, Christian Siriano’s a freaking genius, so surely he has taken such things into consideration.
Lauren seems to be dressed as some sort of Elsa-inspired superhero and I APPROVE WHOLEHEARTEDLY. And Samira just looks like literal perfection in every way. Man, this is just excellent news. *happy sigh*
Also, I have always wanted to have a funfetti cake if I ever got married, but I never considered it could be the theme for the whole dang wedding! Brilliant.
“Imagine, for a moment, what it would be like to marry Samira Wiley.” I ALREADY DO THIS EVERY DAY OKAY
YEEEESSSS! *Oprah voice*
Wow, if two people in the world somewhere can find happiness , it makes the BS of your own life and BS otherwise in the world quite bearable. And i don’t mean it in a sarcastic manner, it really brings me joy to see them together. Guess it’s being part of humanity or whatever.
The cake topper to my three day weekend ??? Congratulations the happy newlyweds!
I saw that the article writer was named Stef and for a moment I thought it was Stef from the Fosters who was fangirling
Umm I need that caped jumpsuit in maroon with the collar in black for glorious (pretend) super-villain speechifying reasons.
The wedding jumpsuit is mimd blowingly elegant and fun!!! I have never had any ideas of having a traditional wedding, but I may just sport white om that day (as long as it’s a jumpsuit) ?
