Embracing the Internet age, Doug and Jaime met through an online dating site. Their first date face-to-face was at the Ginger Man restaurant on Greenwich Avenue. Match.com did a perfect profile pairing, because this “match” led to marriage.
During their courtship, the adventurous pair got certified in scuba diving; and one evening just before sunset while on a dive trip to St. Lucia, they went for a walk on the beach where Doug got down on bended knee in the sand to propose.
Gabrielle Martone, niece of the groom, officiated at the ceremony at Regatta Place in Newport with the groom and best man kilted in the modern Ross Hunting tartan. The newlyweds felt overwhelmed by the amazing collection of family and friends who had all come together from as far away as Dushanbe, Tajikistan, to be a part of their special day.
The bride, daughter of Marianne Mahoney of Scituate, Massachusetts, graduated from Newton South High School and Babson College and received her M.B.A. from MIT Sloan. Jaime works for Pepsico in Harrison, New York.
The groom, son of Sandra Herman and the late Russel H. Herman of Greenwich, graduated from Brunswick School and Cornell University. Doug works for UBS in Stamford.
Following a honeymoon in Australia, where the couple dove the Great Barrier Reef, the Hermans returned home to Stamford.
