The celebration, which was officiated by Wiley's parents, included a confetti theme based on the couple's love for Pillsbury Funfetti cake.

Montell Jordan's "This Is How We Do it" was used as they walked down the aisle while Justin Bieber's "Baby" was played during the couple's grand entrance to the reception.

The pair donned custom Christian Siriano ensembles with Wiley wearing an off-the-shoulder dress with a full skirt and Morelli wearing a chic pantsuit complete with a decorated bodice and a long cape.

Wiley shared an image of their bridal outfits from Martha Stewart Weddings on Instagram writing "#aboutlastnight." The actress also posted a photo of herself and Morelli after the wedding writing "#wifed."
