It's a celebration! Nearly five months following Samira Wiley’s engagement to Orange Is The New Black writer Lauren Morelli, the OITNB actress held a star-studded bachelorette party in Miami—and we're a little jealous we didn't get an invite. According to E! News, the actress partied with a few close friends at hotspot E11EVEN Miami. Also in attendance were Wiley's OITNB costars Uzo Aduba and Danielle Brooks.
Sources revealed the guests ordered a ton of Don Julio 1942 and Belvedere. The bash must've been quite the lituation, as Brooks tweeted about the soirée early Saturday morning. "Really?? 6am? Time you're moving too fast for me."
Further, the occasion seemingly doubled as a birthday celebration for Wiley, who turns 30 (!!) in April. The Miami nightclub displayed a "Happy Birthday & Congratulations Samira" sign near the bar.
Wiley and Morelli were engaged early October of last year, and revealed the news with an Instagram photo of the actress's gorgeous sparkler. The adorable photo was simply (and perfectly) captioned, "Yes." Shortly after announcing the news, the couple, who met on the set of the Netflix hit, dished on the details of their engagement with Out magazine. Morelli popped the question just before a weekend getaway to Palm Springs.
"She got home and was just not ready to go, and I was confused," Wiley said of the proposal. "She asked me to sit next to her. Then she got me up, and we started dancing together, and she pulled a ring from behind the couch. I didn't know she was as ready as she was. I was completely shocked. I was crying uncontrollably and kept backing away from her."
"I thought, 'Oh, this is not good. This has gone too far,'" Morelli confessed. "She was very clear she’d wait for me to be ready, so to give her something I knew she wanted so much was incredible. It was the most magical day of my life."
