Ariana Grande is married!

The singer wed her fiance, real estate agent Dalton Gomez, over the weekend in Montecito, California. The ceremony reportedly took place in the couple’s house. Like many other couples in this pandemic, the couple had a small, intimate ceremony.

“They got married,” Grande’s rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively. “It was tiny and intimate — less than 20 people. The room was so happy and full of love. The couple and both families couldn’t be happier.” 

UPDATE (May 26, 2021): Vogue magazine has obtained exclusive pictures of the ceremony. Writer Alexandra Macon notes that Gomez wore a black Tom Ford suit. Designer Vera Wang made Grande’s dress — a custom, lily-white column gown with a sweetheart neckline and a plunging back. Pearl and diamond earrings by Lorraine Schwartz were chosen to compliment the gown; Grande wore one earring upside down. As Macon explains, “The meaning behind this is significant to Ariana, as it represents appreciating the lowest or the ‘upside down’ moments in her life and how they have contributed to where and who she is now.”

Ariana’s mother Joan Grande and father Edward Butera gave the bride away. They walked her down the aisle to meet Dalton, who wore a black Tom Ford suit. Dalton and Ariana said their vows in a room lit by candlelight; flowers were suspended from the ceiling.

Grande, 27, started dating Gomez, 25, in January 2020. Their relationship got serious while quarantining in New York City amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Gomez eventually headed back to Los Angeles for his real estate job, and Grande took a big leap by joining him on the West Coast. 

“It was getting tricky for them to see each other, so she decided to take her chance,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “She purchased a house in the Hollywood Hills in June and never looked back. They are incredibly happy.”

The duo went public with their relationship in May 2020 when they both appeared in Grande’s “Stuck With U” music video with Justin Bieber. Grande announced the news of their engagement in December. She unveiled her diamond-and-pearl engagement ring via Instagram (where she is the most followed woman) on December 20:

According to his bio on the company’s website, Gomez serves as the sole buyers agent for the Aaron Kirman Group. He also served as Director of Operations for Aaron Kirman Group during his first three years with the company, running all day-to-day operations of the top luxury real estate team in LA. Grande, meanwhile, scored her fifth number-one album in November with Positions. According to Billboard, it’s her third number-one in just over two years, making her the fastest woman ever to achieve three No. 1 albums.

On March 14, Grande and Lady Gaga won the Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Collaboration for their duet “Rain on Me.” It is the first all-female collaboration to win that award. In June 2020, “Rain on Me” became the first female musical collab to debut at number one on the Billboard charts.
