The 36-year-old actress tied the knot with her fiancé Louis Diame in an intimate wedding ceremony in the South of France over the weekend.

Taking to her Instagram page on Monday, the ‘Insecure’ star shared a series of photographs from her nuptials and quipped that the wedding shots were courtesy of an “impromptu photoshoot” - even though her bridesmaids were all in the same dress.

Issa wore a strapless ball gown from Vera Wang, complete with Chantilly lace and hand-sewn crystal beading. The actress paired the dress with a chapel-length veil and silver peep-toe shoes. After the ceremony, Rae changed into her second Vera Wang look: a lily-white Italian silk-crepe A-line gown with plunging V-neck and layered tulle skirt.

Designer, Vera Wang, took to Instagram to congratulate the couple, writing, “You look ethereal! Wishing you and Louis continued happiness and joy in your new life together.”

Issa’s dress is the latest Vera Wang look to make an appearance this wedding season.

In May, singer Ariana Grande channelled Audrey Hepburn on her big day with a Vera Wang strapless gown. In July, Gwen Stefani honoured her kids and husband, Blake Shelton, with her custom Vera Wang veil, which included their names embroidered along the hemline.
