After years of speculation that Issa Rae was engaged (and possibly already married), the Insecure star and creator put all rumors to rest with one flash of her dreamy Vera Wang wedding gown. 

Although the budding media mogul has always been tight-lipped about her private life, she surprised fans on Instagram Monday with a breathtaking set of photos from her wedding to Louis Diame - and they were beyond stunning. According to E! News, the couple tied the knot in a private ceremony in the South of France over the weekend.

Issa was beaming in the photos, which show her strolling down a picturesque walkway looking like a princess in the custom white number, which came complete with a tulle skirt and a corseted bodice topped with a sweetheart neckline and crystallized detailing.

The Hoorae mogul wore her hair parted down the middle with a naturally curly ponytail, which she topped with a sheer white veil, and finished her wedding day glam look with metallic silver platform heels and diamond stud earrings.

The post also marked the first time Issa has shared a photo of herself on social media with her now-husband, and she can be seen cozying up with him in one photo as she wrapped her arms around his red suede tux.

In others, the duo posed on a staircase together, revealing Issa’s jaw-dropping sheer train, and embraced each other in front of their wedding digs - a gorgeous estate that also had a serene pond.

In true Issa fashion though, she didn’t directly say she had gotten married, even though it was clearly the case. She joked in the caption of the post instead, writing, "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."
