Justin & Hai­ley Bieber

On the morn­ing of his wed­ding day, Justin Bieber was any­thing but ner­vous. Hours ahead of his Sept. 30 re­li­gious cer­e­mony with Hai­ley Bald­win in­side the idyl­lic light-filled Som­er­set Chapel at the Mon­tage Pal­metto Bluff re­sort in South Carolina, “Justin was all smiles and re­ally up­beat,” says a source. “He was very re­laxed. You wouldn’t know he was get­ting mar­ried!” Friends say 25-yearold Justin—who has pub­licly weath­ered sev­eral trou­bled years—has found peace with Hai­ley, 22. The two legally wed a year ago (and she took his last name) but had long been plan­ning more for­mal nup­tials. Af­ter their ro­man­tic re­hearsal din­ner on Sept. 29, the pop star and his model bride (the daugh­ter of ac­tor Stephen Bald­win) threw a fun-filled bowl­ing party and group view­ing of the ro­mance The Note­book. The next day they stood in front of 154 of their friends and loved ones, elated to ex­change “I dos” for the sec­ond time. “Justin and Hai­ley think their love story is so ro­man­tic,” says a friend of the cou­ple. “They found their way back to each other. It’s like a movie!”

Af­ter dat­ing briefly in 2015, they had a “very dra­matic” breakup, the model told Vogue in Fe­bru­ary. Their whirl­wind rec­on­cil­i­a­tion in sum­mer 2018 (met with ire from some fans hop­ing he’d re­unite with ex Se­lena Gomez) cul­mi­nated in a sur­prise pro­posal dur­ing a Ba­hamian va­ca­tion, quickly fol­lowed by their New York City court­house nup­tials two months later. Hai­ley’s un­wa­ver­ing sup­port of Justin has brought them closer as he has spo­ken out about his on­go­ing men­tal health strug­gles. “They take the com­mit­ment they made to each other and to God very se­ri­ously,” says the friend, who adds that they share a strong Chris­tian faith. “They re­ally are two kids who are crazy in love. Hai­ley just wants to build a lov­ing, happy home and fam­ily with Justin.”

From Kids to New­ly­weds Hai­ley (above with Justin in 2009 and 2018) first met her fu­ture hus­band when she was 13 years old. “Mar­ry­ing Justin is Hai­ley’s dream come true,” says a friend of the cou­ple (left, in Septem­ber 2018). For Justin, as he wrote on In­sta­gram (be­low), it’s a chance to be a bet­ter man.

The Ar­rival The Wed­ding Chapel The Re­cep­tion The Fa­mous Guests The En­ter­tain­ment On Sept. 29 Hai­ley (in a cus­tom Vivi­enne West­wood silk minidress) and Justin hopped in a speed­boat to head to their re­hearsal din­ner (com­plete with an oys­ter roast!) at More­land Land­ing. As the cou­ple ex­changed vows at Som­er­set Chapel, the “sun started to set, and there was a mag­i­cal glow,” says a source. Guests headed to the re­sort’s Wil­son Ball­room, which was draped in Span­ish moss and flo­rals, for a sit-down din­ner. Ken­dall Jen­ner (cen­ter, head­ing to the re­hearsal), Kylie Jen­ner, Travis Scott, Ed Sheeran, Usher and more at­tended. A year af­ter watch­ing Daniel Cae­sar per­form at Coachella, the cou­ple tapped the Grammy win­ner to sing his hit song “Best Part” at the re­cep­tion.
