On June 11, 2016, we married in front of 8 of our loved ones at Toronto City Hall. I wore my trusty leather jacket which I hand painted for the occasion after teaching myself modern calligraphy. Only a week later, I decided to let go of the jacket and posted it for trade on a local barter/trading site (Bunz Wedding Zone) and was met with overwhelming demand. Nowadays, #TheJustMarriedJacket goes to a different wedding every weekend. Join me & over 100 Toronto brides in spreading the good vibes and looking like a total badass on your wedding day. xo
You've got your wedding date; now check the calendar to make sure #TheJustMarriedJacket is free. If you're in Toronto then get in touch to confirm your booking!
You get to borrow #TheJustMarriedJacket from Wednesday to Tuesday in exchange for just a bottle of red wine. Wear it as much as you want and celebrate in style! (Local pickup in Toronto only)
Bring #TheJustMarriedJacket back after your big day so we can share the love and welcome more badasses into our bride tribe!
It's a size Medium with a slight boyfriend fit and yes, it's real leather! This just happens to be the size because it's literally my favourite jacket that I legit wore everyday.
At this time, I'm just one person running this project and as you can imagine, it's a LOT of daily emails. Managing a calendar, waiting list and messaging people to remind them to bring it back is a lot of administration. Since the jacket only goes out Wednesday to Tuesday and bookings are back to back, there's just no way I can work shipping into this system. The original is exclusive to local Toronto brides. I am working on expanding the project to more big cities worldwide, and it is available in select cities now (scroll to the end of the page to explore!)
There's only one jacket and it's the original one I made for my own wedding. The reason that I'm not making other sizes is to keep this project authentic to it's origin story. There's a little bit of magic to all these brides wearing the exact same jacket and I'm not looking to profit from this; I just want to make other brides happy (and stylish!). Please understand that when you copy the project without my consent and create replicas, it's hurtful to myself as an artist and to every bride that has worn it.
Of course! My only condition is that I will not paint this same design on another jacket. I have rejeceted hundreds of requests for new "Just Married" jackets. The authenticity and exclusivity of this project is important to me; but I will happily work with you on a custom design on your own leather jacket so you can have your very own unique piece! I work with brides worldwide to create thier custom designs which you can shop for here: https://viacalligraphy.com/collections/custom-painted-leather-jackets
