Ariana Grande isn’t known for her understated style. The pop star favours exaggerated ballgowns with impossibly full skirts, over-the-knee boots that are basically pants and high ponytails so long, she risks tripping on them. But for her wedding day, the 27-year-old singer went a decidedly more minimal, classic route with her bridal look — and photos from the intimate day are finally here.

Grande married Dalton Gomez, her partner of a little more than a year, on May 17 in a low-key ceremony described by the singer’s rep to People as “tiny and intimate.” The nuptials took place at Grande and Gomez’s Montecito, California home and from the looks of some of the photos Grande has shared on her Instagram, the scene was pure timeless romance, with white candles everywhere and flowers suspended from the ceiling.

Grande’s wedding gown was equally timeless. According to an exclusive interview with Vogue, the white silk charmeuse strapless dress was designed by bridal legend Vera Wang (who else?), the result of a pact made by the two famous women at the Met Gala a few years back. “On fashion’s biggest night, Vera promised that when the time came, she would create Ariana’s wedding day look…and the iconic designer delivered,” writes Vogue. The publication describes Grande’s custom wedding dress as an “empire waist column gown accented with a sculpted neckline, an exposed bra strap closure, and a plunging back.”

It’s refreshing to see the often OTT singer in such an elegant gown on her big day — but playful accessories, like a shoulder-length bubble veil with a satin bow at the top, make the overall look feel pitch-perfect for the young star.

Grande’s wedding hair and makeup, which included polished half-up hair, sculpted brows and winged liner (the work of Josh Liu and Ash Kohlm respectively, per Vogue), also marry a certain timeless grace with some of the bride’s signature beauty moments, like cat-eye liner.

But the look we’re most struck by? The look of love shared between these two young lovebirds! What can we say, we’re suckers for romance. Congrats to the newlyweds!
