Here comes the bride (and groom)...

by Andrea Mulder-Slater

Earlier this year, Jantje was commissioned by the Algonquin Resort in St. Andrews New Brunswick, to create a number of sculptures using Bay of Fundy driftwood and recycled cutlery from the historic hotel which has undergone a magnificent transformation.

Bending metal, one tine at a time...

Just this fall, she discovered that her sculptures would be adorning the tables at Braxton's Restaurant and Bar, located in the hotel, and was asked to create 25 more...

A small taste of what's to come...

No sooner had Jantje completed her latest commission when the hotel's manager contacted her with a unique and wonderful request -- to create a wedding themed sculpture as part of a Random Act of Kindness for a husband and wife to be.

The Random Act of Kindness was a biggie. During their wedding rehearsal at the Algonquin Resort Clubhouse, Peter MacLeod and now wife, Peggy Tucker, were given some terrific news.

Algonquin Resort General Manager Tim Ostrem presented the couple with the news that he had shredded their wedding bill.

Here's a video of the lucky couple as they found out their wedding was "on the house".

What a wonderful, heartwarming gesture...
