With so much going on with the Olympics, the ever-spreading Delta variant and Governor Cuomo’s misbehavior, you might have missed the news that actress and producer Issa Rae married her sweetheart of seven years, businessman Louis Diame, over the last week of July.


Rae announced the marriage on her Instagram account where she featured gorgeous photos from the ceremony at the legendary Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, known for its luxurious setting, stunning ocean views, and an historic guestbook that includes everyone who was anyone from Queen Victoria to Elizabeth Taylor. She wore a sleeveless custom designed Vera Wang white wedding dress, while the groom wore a custom red velvet Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo. The five bridesmaids wore light lavender gowns.


Media mogul Rae has always been very private about her personal life, but it was rumored she was wearing an engagement ring two years ago, and Diame had accompanied her to a number of red carpet events. Still, she managed to pull off a glamorous destination wedding right under the eyes of the paparazzi who were in the south of France at the time shooting JLo’s butt-touching affection from Ben Affleck, as well as ARod’s adventures.
