When it comes to the idea of protecting your peace, nobody does it better than Insecures very own, Issa Rae. Over the weekend, Rae casually dropped photos from her wedding to her now-husband Louis Diame on Instagram this Monday morning, completely breaking the internet.

The wedding comes as a complete surprise to many of her fans. Rae, who has been extremely private about her relationship with Diame, has dodged speculation about her engagement dating all the way back to April of 2019. As Rae once told The View, where she was asked about her suspected engagement ring, “I have a lot of rings on my fingers.” Well, the beautiful photos from their wedding in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat have cleared the air about the status of her relationship to Diame, once and for all!

Diame, who has been identified by Marie Claire as a “Senegalese businessman,” keeps an incredibly low profile online. He’s the perfect match for Rae, who has been quoted saying that she wants absolutely no “input” on her relationship: “I don’t want any input,” Rae explained to Vogue. “As a writer, you put everything on the table. I’ll take input on kids if I’m going to have kids. How do I not kill the kids? Work? Give me the input. Any other aspect of my life? Give me the input. But who I’m f*cking? No, I don’t need input. I’m good.”

The photos of the intimate ceremony, held at the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild in the South of France, went viral online, with over 1.5 million likes on Instagram. Rae was sure to unveil the wedding news with her inimitable, tongue-in-cheek humor in her coyly funny Instagram caption:

"A) Impromptu photo shoot in a custom @verawang dress. B) My girls came to help me, but they all coincidentally had on the same dress! They were sooooo embarrassed. C) Then I took a few flicks with Somebody’s Husband,” she wrote. “Big thanks to @whiteedenweddings for being so gracious and accommodating and making this feel so real and special."

Rae looked absolutely breathtaking on her special day in two custom Vera Wang Haute wedding gowns. “Somebody’s Husband” wore a red velvet tux with black lace accents by Dolce & Gabbana.
