Despite the scaled-down celebrations, Grande and Dalton - a real estate agent - are said to have exchanged the traditional 'I dos,' TMZ reported.
The source also claimed that the ceremony was 'really just for them' but it is unclear if it was an impulsive decision, or whether they had planned the big day.

A source confirmed that the 40-year-old Friday Night Lights beauty and The Daily Show host, 37, had officially gone their separate ways to People.

We also learned that Gates had an 'inappropriate' relationship with a female staff member in 2000, and resigned while an investigation into the affair was being investigated by the company board. The relationship came to light after the Microsoft employee wrote to the board in 2019 detailing the affair - and allegedly asked that Gates' estranged wife Melinda Gates, 56, read the letter. Pictured: Bill and Melinda in June 2000.
On Sunday, The New York Times also reported that Gates asked two women who worked at Microsoft and his philanthropic foundation out on dates while married to Melinda. 'If this makes you uncomfortable, pretend it never happened,' Gates emailed a Microsoft employee in 2006 after watching her make a presentation. The woman took his advice and his advances never materialized into anything physical. A couple of years later, Gates asked out an employee with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The pair were in New York for a work trip, when he told her: 'I want to see you. Will you have dinner with me?' The woman told the Times the approach made her feel uncomfortable, but she laughed it off.
KATIE HOLMES AND EMILIO VITOLO ARE OVER: Katie Holmes and Emilio Vitolo Jr. have called it quits on their romantic relationship. Representatives for the 42-year-old actress confirmed the pair split but will 'remain friends' after dating for nearly eight months, according to Us Weekly. 'Their relationship fizzled. They figured out they're better off as friends,' a source told the publication. 'There's no drama that went down with the breakup and in fact, they're still friends.' The insider added: 'Katie and Emilio really enjoyed their time together - it just simply didn't work out. She's focusing on being a mom and her upcoming projects.'
The Dawson's Creek darling looked a bit downtrodden as she was seen for the first time since their parting was revealed. Katie's solo outing in NYC comes amid reports that Emilio, 33, is already on a 'bunch' of dating apps including celeb-favorite Raya. Katie was seen clinging onto a cup of coffee as she stood on the sidewalk waiting for a car to whisk her away.
NYC singles say the Emilio's Ballato chef is also already on the prowl. 'It's not just Raya - he's on a bunch of other dating apps too,' an insider told Page Six. 'He didn't exactly hide the fact that he's broken up from Katie.' Vitolo earned some notoriety when he started dating Holmes; at the time he was engaged to a woman by the name of Rachel Emmons, who was left 'blindsided' when he called things off via text two days before photos of he and Katie emerged.
Meanwhile, the SNL writer has reportedly already moved on in the form of a new relationship with Newsroom star Olivia Munn. This is very new, they're taking it slowly,' one insider told People. 'They met at church in Los Angeles.' The two have been friends for a while, it was claimed, and she encouraged him to keep his chin up during rehab. 'Sending SO MUCH love and support to John Mulaney. You got this,' she tweeted when he was getting help in December 2020.
Today Extra then showed a screenshot of the direct message, in which A-Rod simply wrote: 'Great feed!!!'
