Issa Rae is opening up about her wedding to Louis Diame and why she decided to share some of those moments with the world.

During an interview on the Tamron Hall Show, the Insecure creator and star revealed that the only reason she posted photos from her wedding day was to get ahead of the story.

“I worked with Vera Wang, who were really great, and they wanted to post the photo and at the time, I was like, ‘OK, yeah, no problem.’ And then later, you know, I was like, ‘Oh, they’re gonna post the photo before me.’ Let me tell it my way, in the best way I know how and that’s the only reason that I let it go,” she explained of the July Instagram post. “I wanted to release the photo my way first without having them release it.”

While Insecure star’s marriage may have come as a shock to fans, she shared that it wasn’t a surprise to friends and family. And the actress, writer and producer gushed that her wedding, overall, was “just a beautiful experience.”

“People tell you that it goes by fast, and they’re right,” Rae admitted. “But my thing was, it was a party. At the end of the day, it was just a big party. And it was a lot of fun. And I’m really blessed, I feel so blessed to be surrounded by people who took the time out to just come and celebrate and that’s something that I’ll cherish for the rest of my life.”
