Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin left fans shook after they got married (yes, they are actually married married) in a quick New York City courthouse ceremony last month and now new details are coming out about how it all went down.

According to People the quickie ceremony was all Hailey's idea. "Hailey is a very bright girl. She’s not just blindly adoring Justin and doing whatever he wants,” says the source. "She’s wanted to be with Justin for a very long time."

The couple plans to have a big ceremony with friends and family eventually, but Hailey felt that "officially becoming husband and wife sooner rather than later solidified them as a team." Baldwin also thought it was the best way to prove any doubters or critics wrong. "The city hall marriage was her idea. It was 'you and me against the world,'" says the source. "Let's show [everyone] we're serious and it’s not just some crazy fling."

To make things even more official, Hailey recently filed court documents to trademark "Hailey Bieber" for clothing line and business purposes, as first reported by The Blast.
