Fletcher and Baldwin Met in 2015

Two years ago today I met this man. I was 36 at the time… had a killer career, incredible girlfriends, a pug who’s my BFF and a fun life in NYC. Still, something was missing. Big time. So I went to a holiday party, thinking I’d breeze thru and be on my way to a surf vacay with a gal pal early the next AM. But this hunky Englishman barely let me get past the front door. And in a very short space of time, I knew. I KNEW. All those older, wiser friends would say: “when you know, you know.” They were right (annoyingly). We laugh about that now. Love that I found him… even if a little later in life. ❤️ 🇯🇲
Baldwin was going back to Atlanta for Christmas, so Fletcher had to make his move fast. After a dinner date, she invited him to New Orleans, where she would cover New Year’s Eve for CNN. They spent time together over the holiday in New Orleans, and their relationship grew from there.
The 2016 presidential elections kept Brooke Baldwin busy. But when the journalist wasn’t on the campaign trail, she was spending time with James Fletcher in the Big Apple.
Her work and their time together were often parallel events. For instance, they had to cut their French vacation short and he tagged along with her when she had to cover the Istanbul airport attacks in 2016.
Their relationship only grew stronger, so they took it to the next level. Fletcher popped the question when they were celebrating Baldwin’s 38th birthday in Kauai, Hawaii.
We were chilling on the beach,” she recalled. “We love sunsets. It was simple. I didn’t want a big thing.” He caught her by surprise with his proposal, and she loved it.
Fletcher and Baldwin Married in 2018
After their engagement in Hawaii, James Fletcher and Brooke Baldwin tied the knot on May 5, 2018. On Instagram, Baldwin shared that they had acquired a marriage license about a week before their wedding.
Besides friends and family, Baldwin’s colleagues at CNN, including Don Lemon, Wolf Blitzer, Dana Bash, and Poppy Harlow, were present at the wedding in The Barn at Liberty Farms, in NYC’s Hudson Valley.
Baldwin showcased her entire dress shopping process before debuting her bridal look at the wedding. After trying on several wedding dresses, she went with a figure-hugging number by the Indian-American designer, Naeem Khan—a fitting choice after the engaged couple’s Indian vacation before the wedding.
The CNN anchor happened to meet Naeem Khan after she’d picked that dress. The designer generously offered to customize the gown and throw in a gorgeous veil to complete the ensemble.
As a nod to both of their nationalities, Baldwin got the British and American flags painted on her fingernails. Fletcher’s groom style was on point, with him wearing a bespoke tux tailored by his go-to guy on Saville Row.
