Thanks to Jenny Yuen of the Postmedia Network for this amazing writeup about my sisterhood of the traveling leather jacket in The Toronto Sun and 24 hrs. She got in touch about this story because she'll be wearing it for her wedding this year too! Not only has this been so fun; this project has opened so many doors for me. Thanks Jenny! Interested in getting your own custom painted leather jacket for your wedding or other special occasion?
"We originally wanted a tiny city hall wedding for 12. But then realised that a wedding is about sharing love and joy with your family. And to both of us, family is aunts and uncles, family friends, and our friends. So we chose a venue that could make our grandparents and our Parkdale-loving friends feel comfortable. We had all the things we liked about weddings - open bar, great food, midnight poutine, tons of dancing and laughs and none of the things we don't enjoy (wedding cake, hours of speeches, a formal sit-down 3 course meal, first dance)."
Leading up to June 11, 2016, I was frantically practicing calligraphy. Every scrap piece of paper in my home had "just married" scrawled on it. When I finally brought paint to leather, I accidentally created a project that has me meeting up with a new bride every weekend.
