Justin and Hailey Bieber: A Chronicle of Love, from Their Chance Encounter to a Dreamy Wedding Day

Justin Bieber and his wife, Hailey Bieber (formerly Baldwin), have captured the hearts of fans with their enduring love story. Their enchanting South Carolina wedding set tongues wagging, and their stunning photos ignited conversations everywhere. Their journey began long before they exchanged vows in September 2019; they first crossed paths as teenagers, briefly dating when Hailey was 19 before reconnecting later in life. Now, in 2024, the couple celebrates six blissful years of marriage and eagerly anticipates the arrival of their first child together. Here’s a fresh look at the remarkable timeline of Justin and Hailey Bieber’s romance, from their initial meeting to their joyous reunion and beyond.

In a revelation that reminds us of the passing years, Justin and Hailey crossed paths for the first time in 2009. A mere 12 years old at the time, Hailey was introduced to the ‘Baby’ singer by her renowned father, Stephen, backstage at The Today Show. Their encounter repeated in 2011 at the premiere of Bieber’s film, Never Say Never. However, by then, Justin was already romantically involved with Selena Gomez.

When did Justin and Hailey begin their relationship?

Hailey and Justin Bieber began their romantic journey in 2016, as revealed in an interview with Elle magazine for their March 2020 issue. Reflecting on their early days together, Hailey shared that they officially started dating during that time. She elaborated, highlighting a period when their paths seemed to diverge, which she now considers a positive aspect of their relationship. Despite their initial connection, they parted ways six months later, with Justin subsequently entering a relationship with Sofia Richie.

Justin and Hailey Bieber’s Star-Studded 2019 Wedding Ceremony

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin celebrated their formal religious wedding ceremony in 2019, a year after legally tying the knot. The event took place at the Montage Hotel in South Carolina and was attended by approximately 150 guests, featuring a mix of celebrity friends such as Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Ed Sheeran, and Jaden Smith. For the occasion, Hailey donned three custom wedding dresses: an off-shoulder piece by the late Virgil Abloh, a Ralph & Russo gown for the reception, and a silk Vera Wang slip dress for dancing.

Hailey and Justin chose to wait until they were married before moving in together. In an interview with Elle, Hailey shared, “We didn’t believe in living together before marriage, but we think it’s okay if other people choose to do that, whether it’s with a boyfriend, fiancé, or anyone else.”
