Love is in the air as Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin tied the knot for the second time in Montage Palmetto Bluff luxury resort in Bluffton, South Carolina. The couple first got married in a secret ceremony in a New York courthouse months earlier. Since then Baldwin was already using ‘Bieber’ as her official last name. So the ceremony this past weekend was simply the pomp and circumstance befitting both celebrities.
According to ELLE magazine, the ceremony was Hollywood’s social event of the season. The likes of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Usher, Jaden Smith, model Joan Smalls, and many more attended the wedding. Though despite the impressive guest list, sources say it still felt like an intimate and sentimental affair. Baldwin reportedly had a white tent cover her as she made her way to the actual wedding tent so that paparazzi won’t get a shot of her dress. Sources also say that she changed her dress for the reception. As for sharing their vows, Bieber was apparently so nervous that he stumbled six times while reciting them.
The reception, on the other hand, was as lavish and ostentatious as fans would think. Baldwin apparently planned the event mostly all by herself. “Justin gave his input, but really, all he has to do is show up. He already feels married, so this is just a party.” a source shared with the magazine. The venue reportedly looked straight out of a fairy tale, complete with crystallized candle-holders on the tables, hanging lavender flowers, and twinkling white fairy lights. As for the music, the DJ played mostly 90s music and Bieber songs, while Daniel Caesar performed for the newlyweds as well. All in all, the event cost around a whopping $500,000. Of course, seeing as this was a highly-attended celebrity event, it wasn’t without its fair share of controversies. For one thing, not all of Baldwin’s famous family were present in South Carolina. Her uncle Alec and his family remained in New York instead. There’s no bad blood between the two, per se, but the older Baldwin stayed in New York possibly for SNL duties. He was the only one not present at the wedding. Although the bride still packed her wedding party with family. Her sister Alaia and cousin Ireland both served as bridesmaids.
Unsurprisingly, most of what people are talking about online has something to do with the Kardashian-Jenner clan too. Many fans didn’t like that Kylie Jenner possibly upstaged the bride wearing a very sexy and revealing gold dress. Meanwhile, her supermodel sister, Kendall, on the other hand, had people talking about her snapshot with a mysterious handsome man behind her. Media outlets have since outed him as singer Fai Kahdra and Jenner revealed that they’re just friends.
