Justin and Hailey Bieber want their formal wedding celebration to be a religious affair because they feel bringing God into their marriage will make their union stronger … this according to Stephen Baldwin.
Stephen was on his way to the New York State Fair — where he’s launching a new initiative for veterans called Ready Vets Go — when he filled us in on the motives behind his daughter and the Biebs’ formal wedding party.
Justin’s father-in-law says the happy couple understands weddings and marriages are supposed to be a holy commitment, and they feel a religious ceremony will go a long way towards finding peace and happiness together.
Stephen says he’s proud of Justin for taking some time away from music to be a family man … and he feels JB has made leaps and bounds in the past year as far as making sure he’s spending time with Hailey and having a blast.
Justin and Hailey enjoyed a fancy lunch together Thursday at E Baldi … so ya can’t argue with Stephen, they’re definitely having fun!
As we first reported … Justin and Hailey are going to say their “I dos” again in a place they’ve fallen for … South Carolina … and they recently sent out their save the dates. Hailey’s dad tells us they’re still deciding between a couple venues.
Justin sang in front of his church earlier this week in Bev Hills … and Stephen says Justin and Hailey’s church friends will be at the ceremony, along with tons of celebs.
