Wisconsin "cheese lady" marries in pirate-themed ceremony


You may recall Sarah "The Cheese Lady" Kaufmann. Hot Dish blogged about the ambitious Wisconsin cheese sculptor a few months ago when she came to town to carve a 500-pound bear and a Sioux warrior and princess -- all out of cheese.

Well, you'll never guess what happened. The Cheese Lady done got hitched. It's true! The July 4 ceremony was pirate-themed, with cheese-inspired rings ("bands of gold with cheese dimples and holes"), flags emblazoned "Love Anchored in Cheese," and a 32-foot long ship named MV Cheese Lady. Um, awesome.

How did the lovely couple meet? Oh, why when Sarah went to San Diego to present a 600-pound cheese replica of the USS Ronald Reagan of course! Congrats to the happy couple!
