Someone once said, "When a wife has a good husband, it is easily seen in her face." This couldn't be more true for this darling Birmingham bride.

When I first met Rosie, she and Stuart had just started the journey of living 750 miles apart as Stuart had the honor of being in the McLean Presbyterian Fellows Program in Washington, D.C.. As my own husband and I dated long distance I knew the difficulties of living far away but it was so evident that Rosie had such security in her relationship with the Lord and with Stuart that rarely did their distance show. She radiated when she talked about Stuart - every. single. time. To the point that when the day finally came for me to meet Stuart I felt like I already knew him. From taking months to select each piece of music for their ceremony because that's how important it was, to putting rosemary in the boutinears not only for smell but for the brides namesake, to getting ready at the home she grew up in, to driving away in her dads vintage car, to having an ice cream bar instead of a grooms cake, to stealing the show from the band when the entire reception linked arms for the Auburn fight song, to serving Jim N Nicks famous cheese biscuts, this wedding was wonderful. Being the oldest of four girls, Rosie had a lot of eyes watching as she embarked on this wedding planning journey and she handled each decision with such grace and gratefulness. Happy one year and a couple weeks Mr. and Mrs. Spooner it was an honor serving your families.
