Mini vacation

Last weekend we went to Frederick, MD to the wedding of our friends' (Fudd & Vicky's) daughter - Lindsay and Ben were married in this stately Lutheran church.
We enjoyed the entire event (and felt young again for a moment). Below the happy couple cut the wedding cake. (Yes, they received a "wedding painting" from us.)
The next day we boarded a tourist boat and motored to Mount Vernon.
There was an artist "colony" in the harbor. Many artists had studio and exhibition space in the old "Torpedo Factory." We saw that one of the artist shared my wife's maiden name Seefeldt. While we were exclaiming about it, Elke Seefeldt appeared. She knew of my wife's grandfather Fritz Seefeldt and uncle Ulf Seefeldt who both lived in Germany. Small world.
Elke Seefeldt was an accomplished potter as you can see by the above image! She has developed many styles. Below is Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington.

Sounds like a great adventure. I think the pumpkin wedding cake is a cute idea. The potter does some amazing work!
