Imagine a destination wedding in an expensive wedding dress where an insane amount of money is spent on keeping paparazzi at bay and adding other expensive details. Unfortunately, that’s what most celebrity weddings look like.
But not all celebrities are alike; some prefer keeping things low-key. One such celeb is Ariana Grande.
Grande surprised the world recently when she tied the knot with real estate agent Dalton Gomez in a private ceremony at her Montecito home.
While there were no paps present at the event to share her joy with the world, the young singer recently posted a few pictures of herself and her husband from her wedding day.
Join us as we take a look at the beautiful setup.
Grande’s remarkable wedding venue
On May 26, 2021, Grande took to Instagram to share several pictures of her fairytale-like at-home wedding. She captioned the images with a white heart emoji and her wedding date – “5.15.21”.
According to the photographs, Grande’s Tudor-style home, which she bought in June 2020 from Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi for $6.75 million, served as her wedding venue.
The spacious Montecito house, which dates back to the 1700s, was previously two separate barns in England. After several years, the barns were uprooted and moved to California, where they were linked together with the help of an orangery.
The house has two beds and two full and two half baths, along with two modular kitchens. It also has a gym space, a full basement, a workshop, and a three-car garage which would cover any guest’s necessities. The house’s English roots, which bring in lofted wood-beam ceilings, and exposed brick fireplaces, were a cherry on the top. They were used for dangling flowers and served as a perfect backdrop for clicking pictures.
Grande and Gomez’s outfits
After Grande shared the pictures, Vogue reported that the Positions singer wore a Vera Wang outfit for her wedding. It disclosed that a few years ago, when designer Vera Wang and Grande converged at a Met Gala event, Wang promised the singer that on her big day, she would design her outfit. And she kept her word!
Wang designed a gorgeous lily-white silk charmeuse gown for the 27-year-old singer, which she wore with a hand-pleated bubble veil and a satin bow. She accessorized the dress with Pearl and diamond earrings by Lorraine Schwartz and custom Giuseppe Zanotti platform heels.
To bring out the whole look, she approached fashion stylist Mimi Cuttrell. The singer even hired Josh Liu for her hair and Ash K Holm for her makeup. As for the groom, Gomez looked dapper in a classy Tom Ford suit.
The duo stood in front of a white stone fireplace with wooden beams in the wall and lit candles around the floor while exchanging their vows. They promised to love each other forever and stay happy in each other’s company.
