Lauren captioned the photograph: “Wifey for lifey.”

The Martha Stewart Weddings site said the couple exchanged vows in a confetti-themed celebration at the same place that they got engaged in 2016.

Samira’s parents officiated at the ceremony.

The couple chose This Is How We Do It by Montell Jordan for the recessional and they entered the reception to Justin Bieber’s Baby.

Samira, 29, and Lauren announced their engagement in October by posting a picture of themselves looking blissfully happy on social media, with the actress flashing a diamond ring.

Lauren came out publicly three years ago in an article for Mic, where she wrote that she realised she was gay on one of her first days on the set of the prison dramedy in 2012.
