It’s the lawyer she’s been going out with, no surprise there. His name’s Tim Jessel.

They were set up on a blind date by author Ann Patchett. Guess she got a slice of cake.

Here‘s the lowdown. The bride, by the way, wore green.


  • Petros Linardos says:

    So what? Is that newsworthy? I see this as Fleming’s private matter.

  • Thomas P says:

    Actually, she did NOT get married in green. Read your source again, Norman. And yes, Petros, this is newsworthy and has vast implications for her operatic trajectory and laryngeal integrity. Pity you don’t get it.

  • Suzanne says:

    Thanks, Thomas P, for setting the record straight! It pays to read the “Original” article…

  • Congratulations to Renee Fleming and Tim Jessel. I hope they will be very happy together, no matter what colour of dress Renee wore for her wedding.
