Issa Rae has announced her marriage to fiancé Louis Diame, joking to her Instagram followers early Monday that the wedding marked an “impromptu photo shoot in a custom [Vera Wang] dress.”

In the post, which also included a number of photos shot by Lauren Fair, the Insecure co-creator and star also joked that her friends showed up to offer their assistance but were all “sooooo embarrassed” after realizing they were all “coincidentally” wearing the same dress.

“Then I took a few flicks with Somebody’s Husband,” she said.

In a press release, Vera Wang noted that Rae wore custom Vera Wang Haute to her wedding in the South of France on July 25. Rae selected a custom light ivory strapless sweetheart neckline ballgown, complete with hand-placed Chantilly lace accented by hand-sewn crystal beading and a light ivory chapel-length veil also outfitted with hand-placed Chantilly lace.

For the reception, Rae wore a custom lily white Italian silk crepe plunging V-neck A-line gown and a layered tulle skirt with a front slit.


Meanwhile, E! News has since quickly come through with a report on the gathering, which they noted was a private ceremony. According to a source cited in the E! report, guests came from “near and far” to participate in the moment, with some staying at the nearby Saint Jean Cap Ferrat hotel.

Back in 2019, many fans assumed Rae and Diame had gotten engaged due to the sight of a ring on the prolific multi-hyphenate’s finger on the cover of Essence.

Complex has reached out to reps for Issa Rae for additional comment.

In June, Rae completed her final day of shooting on HBO’s Insecure.

“Said goodbye to some of my favorite people on Earth, on and off screen, this past week,” she said at the time. “Never imagined all the doors this would open. Forever grateful to those who paved the way for us to do us.”

Looking ahead, fans will soon enough be introduced to a Project Greenlight revival from Rae, with word arriving back in May that HBO Max had given an eight-episode order to the new iteration of the docuseries that follows up-and-coming filmmakers.
