Untangling Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin's Whirlwind Wedding Buzz

Are they or aren't they? Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have sparked wedding rumors in the past 24 hours after they were spotted inside the marriage bureau of a New York City courthouse on Thursday.
Baldwin has taken to social media to deny the speculation, tweeting that she's "not married yet." But a courthouse source tells E! News that the 24-year-old "Boyfriend" singer and the 21-year-old model arrived at around 4 p.m. and got married in a back room.
People broke the story on Friday, citing two sources, that Bieber and Baldwin married at the courthouse on Thursday, with one source close to the couple telling the outlet, "They went ahead and did it without listening to anyone." While a religious source also told the outlet, "They're going to have a big blowout, in front of God and everyone they love."
According to TMZ, Bieber was crying inside the courthouse and said to Baldwin, "I can't wait to marry you, baby."
Another insider also told E! News on Friday that Bieber and Baldwin are legally married. The source also shared that the couple, who got engaged two months ago, "didn't tell anyone they were doing it," adding, "They are doing a separate ceremony out of the country with a few family members soon as well."
"Justin and Hailey told friends and family they were going to get paperwork and inquire about a marriage license but decided to tie the knot right at the courthouse yesterday," a third source tells E! News. "No one knew about their plan. They thought it would be better that way so no one would try and talk them out of it. They wanted it to be a special moment just between the two of them.
    The insider adds that Justin and Hailey both "had to go through a marriage counseling course through their church which was several sessions long before the marriage became official. They both agreed that they wanted the church to be heavily involved in the process and wanted to follow all of the protocols."
    "Everyone is very on board for the marriage and happy for them," the source tells E! News, adding that Bieber's manager Scooter Braun is also "happy" for the couple. "They are definitely still in the middle of planning a big ceremony for their family and friends"
    In order to get married at the courthouse, Bieber and Baldwin had to complete a marriage license application, which is then reviewed by a City Clerk staff member, who also checks the identification of the couple getting married and collects the $35 fee. Once submitted to the court, a marriage license application is valid for up to 60 days and a marriage ceremony must be performed either there in the office or anywhere in New York State within that time frame in order for the couple to be eligible to receive a marriage certificate. In addition, a couple that has obtained a marriage license in New York must wait 24 hours before they can have a marriage ceremony unless they obtain a judicial waiver. It is unclear if Bieber and Baldwin had one or had submitted the required paperwork before Thursday.
