Congratulations are in order for Orange Is the New Black actress Lauren Lapkus. She married Mike Castle on October 5 in a courthouse ceremony.

“We are so happy!” the Emmy-nominated actress told People. “The whole day was exactly what we wanted it to be: stress-free, romantic, and fun.”

For the intimate affair, the bride wore a high-low wedding dress with an beaded bodice and flutter sleeves. To accessorize, Lapkus rocked pearl-embellished sandals and carried a small bouquet of white flowers and greenery. The groom wore a navy blue suit, and for photos, the couple posed with two big bouquets of pink balloons.

After the ceremony, Lapkus and Castle celebrated with a small dinner party. “We kept everything super simple by getting married at the courthouse and having an intimate dinner party after, with a truly breathtaking performance from our musician friend, Dan Mangan,” Lapkus said. “I am thrilled to be married to my best friend!”

Castle also couldn’t be more excited about his new wife. “I have never known anyone like Lauren, and getting to spend a whole day celebrating this feeling has been the best experience of my life," he said. "Apparently my vows made our judge cry.”

This is Lapkus’s second marriage. She was previously married to actor Chris Alvarado from 2014 to 2016.
