Issa Rae Glows in Surprise Wedding Photos
Insecure star Issa Rae surprised fans with a major life update on Monday, revealing her “impromptu” and private wedding with longtime boyfriend, Louis Diame.
The actress has consistently been one to keep her relationship under wraps, her engagement not even being made official by Rae herself.
Back in 2019, the star appeared on the cover of Essence magazine, the shining ring on her finger clearly more than any old accessory. Her Insecure co-stars Jay Ellis and Yvonne Orji confirmed the good news when interviewed.
The couple held their ceremony at Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, a commune in the South of France, and the images she shared with her followers were nothing short of breathtaking.

Rae’s socials proceeded to be flooded with well-wishes for the newlyweds as well as high praise for the bride’s elegant styling.
Issa Rae really wrapped up her Emmy-nominated series, flew to Miami to start production on her next show, then got married and summer isn’t even over yet. What an icon.— IAMNJERA (@IAMNJERA) July 26, 2021
In the caption of her wedding post, she credits Vera Wang for making her gown, with Dolce&Gabbana being tagged over Diame’s velvet red suit.
“My girls came to help me, but they all coincidentally had on the same dress! They were sooooo embarrassed,” she wrote in the caption.
White Eden Weddings, the wedding planning company in charge of the celebration, shared more photos of the main decor throughout the ceremony as well as additional images of the happy couple.
“Thank you so much, @issarae, for trusting us and being the most wonderful bride! It has been such an honor to plan & design your wedding on the Riviera. You guys are the loveliest, beautiful inside and outside, and we couldn’t be happier for you.”
