LOHO Bride // Real Bride: Jacy + John

From the moment we met Jacy, we knew she was a LOHO bride; her confidence, bad ass style, down to earth demeanor...nothing but good vibes! She's the first to ever rock the Unbridaled by Dan Jones "Stevie" gown and it was made for her. Jacy and John's big day blew us away in so many ways - confetti, color bombs, art installations, DJ sets and even a 7 foot long gummy python. This couple is truly in a league of their own. Congrats to you two.

How did you and your partner meet?

We met at the dog park in San Francisco. He forgot poop bags and was finagling Mango’s poop into a coffee cup with his bare hands. It was all very glamorous.

What about your gown spoke to you?

Oh man! My dream dress that I didn’t even know existed until I saw it. I had never seen anything like it before. It seemed ancient and modern at the same time. I loved the long, clean lines. I loved the movement when I was wearing it, the way layer of layer would almost float when I moved. I felt beautiful and it was perfect…and  I owe all of that to Christy’s insightfulness and intuition. After my first fitting I wasn’t exactly sure which dress I wanted. There were so many amazing dresses, and I am sucker for fashion, so I was left feeling torn. Christy must have noticed this, called me out of the blew and told me about a trunk show LOHO was having. There was one dress from a visiting Australian designer she wanted me to try on. She had a feeling. Her feeling was right. It was love from the moment I put it on. I am so grateful.

Favorite epic wedding moment?

Everyone told me I had ordered too much confetti…that 30+ lbs of confetti and a stadium style confetti cannon was probably overkill. But the thing is… I wanted Flaming Lips style confetti, white-out, over the top, filling people's cocktail glasses, and carpeting the floor confetti. And when that special LCD Soundsystem song came on and that confetti bomb blew and covered all of our surprised guests…. I knew too much was just enough! It was the most fun moment ever. People are still finding confetti in weird places!

Any parting wisdom for future LOHO Bride

Have fun with the whole process. It goes by really fast! Spend time on the things that are important to you and let go of the things that aren’t. And if your fiancé decides last minute there needs to be a professional balloon hat twister-guy at the reception – make it happen! It will be hilarious.

Lastly, feel free to share any other details you wish with us!

John and I work together as designers, so we had so much fun styling our wedding. A lot of that was because our venue was absolutely amazing - huge, raw, and industrial with a lot of personality - which we definitely took into account when designing the look and feel of the wedding.  For the ceremony, cocktail reception, and dinner, we used a clean geometric style that allowed the amazing colors and natural light of the building to shine.  Once the sun went down, the party transformed into a wild scene! The look of the dance floor was inspired by underground Berlin nightclubs, with crazy colorful lighting, funky, mix-matched lounge furniture, and far more confetti than anybody besides me thought was necessary. There were giant penguins, astronauts, elaborate balloon hats, a huge speaker stack art installation, multiple DJ sets and a 7 foot long gummy python. It was the best!
