Cheers to the newlyweds! Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin walked down the aisle during a dreamy wedding ceremony in South Carolina on September 30, one year after legally marrying at a courthouse in New York City. The singer gushed about his gorgeous bride and he obviously feels like he won the jackpot.
“My bride is [hot],” the 25-year-old captioned two photobooth pictures from their big day with a fire emoji. The first snapshot showed the couple sharing a tender smooch while the second was a bit more playful. Hailey, 22, kept her bridal look aligned with her everyday style. Her afterparty dress appeared to be an elegant halter neck without a lot of lace, bling or excess material. She paired the look with a simple low bun and diamond stud earrings. As for the Biebs, he looked dapper in a tux and bowtie.
People have anxiously been waiting for the A-listers to say “I do” during a more formal ceremony and it seemed like the perfect way to bookend their first year of marriage. “Biggest moment ever! … God bless u guys … and trust don’t matter what comes in the way keep GOD 1st and stay positive. Y’all got this,” singer Sean Kingston wrote on Instagram to the pair. “I have been waiting a year to be blessed with this wedding content,” a fan admitted in the comments. “Congratulations! Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness. May the years ahead be filled with lasting joy,” someone else hoped for the young couple.
Their big day took place at a stunning resort in Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina. The guest list was star-studded and included Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Jaden Smith, Justine Skye, Joan Smalls and Justin’s longtime manager Scooter Braun.
While it’s a bit unconventional to go through your first year of marriage before hosting a wedding, it seems to have worked for Hailey and Justin. The Drop the Mic host was even able to enjoy a bachelorette party with her closest gal pals. “Hailey was celebrating her bachelorette at the back in a private tent. She wasn’t in a big group. There were around six people, including Kendall [Jenner]. They shared dishes and drank cocktails,” a source exclusively dished to Life & Style about her big night. “Hailey was having a blast but wasn’t out of control or anything like that.”
More importantly, the model explained to Vogue Australia that the time helped to smooth out some of the kinks they experienced at the beginning. “I had never lived with someone before. I never had to cohabitate with somebody in that way, so I was learning how to share space with someone for the first time. We were trying to bend in each other’s direction and learn what was comfortable,” the blonde beauty explained in an interview published on September 15. “Now it’s easier because we’ve found a rhythm. We have more fun together, which is what should happen when you spend more time with someone you love.”
Congrats to the happy couple!
