It’s been two days since Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin hosted a highly-anticipated second wedding in South Carolina for family and friends, including Kendall and Kylie Jenner. And luckily for us, sources have been talking about the nuptials to outlets like Entertainment Tonight, E!, and People. Here, all the best gossip they’ve spilled about what Jailey’s wedding, V2.
First of all, Baldwin had a tent covering her as she entered into the church so paparazzi couldn’t get a photo of her dress. That rumor Taylor Swift traveled in a giant suitcase has nothing on Baldwin being transported via a white tent to the doors of the church. Baldwin made her reasoning clear on her Instagram Story: “big ole 🖕🖕 to the helicopters,” she wrote over the photo.
People got details about how “upset” Baldwin was when she and Bieber first split in 2016 and how marrying him was literally her dream. Oh No They Didn’t previously revealed that Baldwin was a Belieber when she was young and used to try to meet Bieber with fans. Bieber shared a photo of their first meeting that Baldwin’s dad arranged when they were just kids ahead of their wedding.
“Marrying Justin is Hailey’s dream come true,” a source close to the couple told the outlet. “She always had a crush on him and she was so happy and excited when they got a bit older and dated.” After their first split, “he wasn’t in the right place to be in a healthy relationship with anyone, and she was really upset with him.” But in their time between dating, Baldwin “never dated anyone else seriously. When they came back together [in June 2018], it was everything she had been praying for. She truly just wants to build a loving, happy home and family with Justin.”
Baldwin and Bieber had a fairy-tale-themed reception, a source told E!. The reception hall looked “like an enchanted forest with candles in crystal holders, white twinkle lights and purple lavender flowers hanging from the trees above.”
Baldwin had a separate wedding and reception dress. Her wedding gown was off-the-shoulders, and she wore a veil. A source told E! that “Hailey changed into a high-neck long white dress and took her veil off before heading into the ballroom.” At the reception, they cut their five-tiered wedding cake together and “teased each other with frosting.” TMZ has the first photo of the couple at their reception, where you can see most of Baldwin’s long white gown.
Celebrity guests included Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Stormi Webster, Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend Camila Morrone, Usher, Joan Smalls, Jaden Smith, and Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun. Baldwin’s sister Alaia and cousin Ireland Baldwin were bridesmaids. A source told E! that Baldwin’s cousin caught the bouquet.
The Biebers had ’90s music, Bieber songs, and gospel played at their reception, and Daniel Caesar performed, E! was told. Their DJ “spent majority of the night in control of the music. He was playing all of Bieber’s favorites. There were a lot of fun throwback songs played from the ’90s and a lot of hip hop music as well. Justin’s music was also played.”
The party lasted until 5 A.M. Per E!’s source: “The reception lasted until about 1 a.m. in the ballroom and then everyone stayed up partying in the suites, the lobby and the game room at the hotel until the super late hours—almost 5 a.m.”
The cost of Bieber and Baldwin’s South Carolina wedding? Over $500,000, according to E!. The outlet did a detailed cost breakdown on its site. The hotel alone—TMZ reported the rented all but three rooms—would have cost $139,590.
Entertainment Tonight was told by a source that Baldwin and Bieber focused on sentimentality: They chose “details and activities which had personal meaning to them and their relationship,” the outlet wrote. So the bowling they had the night before their ceremony was done because they wanted to “recreate the moment” they met, a second source said.
Kris Jenner revealed the goodie bag guests got, which included The Notebook novel (they screened the movie, too). There was, unsurprisingly, a ton of merch from Drew House, Bieber’s clothing line:
Not all of Baldwin’s family was at the wedding. People was told her uncle Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria remained in New York.
Baldwin did all the work planning the wedding, per People. “Hailey is really the one who did all the planning,” a source said. “Justin gave his input, but really, all he has to do is show up. He already feels married, so this is just a party.”
Bieber and Baldwin’s wedding bands are from Tiffany & Co. and worth $6,225 total. You can see Baldwin’s wedding bands clearly in Bieber’s second photo here. Baldwin is wearing the Tiffany Soleste diamond-encrusted band ring and v ring, which are worth $3,125 and $2,150, respectively. Bieber is wearing the Tiffany Classic wedding band ring, worth $950.
Baldwin and Bieber are back in Los Angeles now. The two took a private jet back on Tuesday. Baldwin wore a bridal white outfit while disembarking: a white blazer, bralette, and pants.
