Jaimie Fiore & Aaron Wilson

September 22, 2019

Jaime Fiore and Aaron Wilson first met on a dating app. But it wasn’t until a vacation in Maine a few months later that they realized it was more than a passing romance. Three years after their initial meeting, the Bostonians were on a day trip to Newport when Aaron knelt down to “tie his shoe” amidst the grapevines at Newport Vineyards. “In that moment, I knew what was happening,” confesses Jaimie. “The rest is a blur of happy tears.” — By Fred Albert / Newport Life magazine, January 2021

Little Italy

“Originally we wanted to get married in Tuscany,” says Jaimie. But her grand-parents weren’t healthy enough to make the trip, “so we did our best to bring Tuscany to Newport.” The couple married at the Newport Beach House, which Semia floral design dressed in a dusty array of blue, mauve, rose and cream blooms, evoking the muted landscape of an Italian hill town. Baskets of plants lined the aisles during the ceremony and greens cascaded from chandeliers illuminating tables named after Italian towns. “Nine months later, two of my grandparents passed away,” Jaimie says. Having the wedding in Newport, she acknowledges, “was the best decision we made.”

A Stitch in Time

A few weeks after their engagement, Jaimie impulsively picked out a dress — a decision she came to regret. Twelve days before the ceremony, at her mother’s urging, Jaimie went to Lucia Aguiar in East Greenwich and found a satin ball gown she loved. Aguiar had the correct size overnighted to her, then slept at the shop while she altered it, finishing two days before the ceremony. “Lucia was a godsend!” Jaimie exclaims.

Good Vibrations

On one of their first dates, Jaimie and Aaron discovered that the first time either of them attended a concert was when they went to see the Beach Boys with their fathers. “When it came time to pick a song to walk down the aisle to, I knew it had to be God Only Knows,” says Jaimie, who kept the choice a secret from Aaron until the big moment.

Where Are They Now?

After a honeymoon in Mexico, the couple returned to their new home in North Carolina, where Jaimie works in marketing and Aaron is a sous chef.
