Spreading the love! Kristen Doute gushed over friend Stassi Schroeder after she and Beau Clark tied the knot for a second time in Rome.“Look at this ethereal beauty!” Doute, 39, wrote via her Instagram Story on Thursday, May 12, sharing a snap of the bride, 33, and groom, 42. “Love you @stassischroeder.”The Off With My Head author married Clark earlier that day in Italy after previously getting hitched in a backyard ceremony in September 2020.
