Issa Rae has always been reserved when it comes to talking about her love life, so it's no surprise she was able to pull off a private wedding ceremony with her fiancé, Louis Diame!
On Monday morning, the Insecure star unveiled her secret nuptials on Instagram with several stunning photos by Lauren Fair of her "Impromptu photo shoot." In the photos, Rae is wearing a custom Vera Wang light ivory strapless sweetheart neckline ballgown with hand-placed Chantilly lace accented by hand-sewn crystal beading and a light ivory chapel length veil with hand-placed Chantilly lace.
"My girls came to help me, but they all coincidentally had on the same dress! They were sooooo embarrassed," the star teased in her caption. "C) Then I took a few flicks with Somebody's Husband."
"We're very excited for her," Orji expressed, with Ellis adding, "We all found out in different ways because we're all on different text chains. We talk at different times, so we all found out at different times in different ways."
Orji, who plays Rae's on-screen best friend, Molly, on Insecure, revealed that "the reaction was all the same, like, 'You out here in these streets getting married, boo!?' That was the reaction."
On her Instagram Stories, Rae shared the details behind her special bridal bite. Explaining that she wanted some "fangs" for her day, Rae recalled going into Grillz by Scotty in Atlanta, where she received "the best customer experience that I've ever had in my life." Since the actress's order was so last minute, business owner Scotty flew out to the South of France and traveled by boat to deliver them to Rae in person.
Fans and celebrity friends alike shared their congratulations for the bride and groom in Rae's comments, with stars like ABlack Lady Sketch Show's Ashley Nicole Black writing, "You’re always stunning, but that picture of you with that lady’s husband has the most glow. Congrats!"
Joanna Simkin, Rae's makeup artist for the special day, wrote, "Love you two so much. The most magical day, and so honored to witness all of the beauty and love. You two are the most beautiful. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️."
Vera Wang replied to Simkin, complimenting the artist on Rae's "beautiful makeup," to which Simkin similarly praised the dressmaker on Rae's gorgeous gown.
Wang revealed Rae's reception look on her Instagram page, posting a photo of the bride in a custom lily-white Italian silk crepe plunging V-neck A-line gown with a layered tulle skirt accented by a dramatic front slit.
