This Olana Storybook Wedding Featured Blue Toile and Bows

Lauren Grace Vivian & Will Graboyes
May 7, 2022

For Dallas native Lauren Grace Vivian, Will Graboyes always felt like home. The couple met as college freshmen in Washington D.C., where Lauren Grace was attending American University and Will was studying at Georgetown University. “[College is] such a whirlwind, and when I met Will, I felt safe, loved, and cared for,” Lauren Grace says. On May 7, 2022, the couple’s timeless and romantic outdoor nuptials were straight out of a storybook. Both Lauren Grace and Will regard the first look as one of their wedding’s most special moments—a meaningful start to an unforgettable day. Remembers the bride, “I was like, ‘Ah! This dress, this place, Will.’ It was just all so perfect.”

No Doubt About It

The bride kept an open mind when searching for her gown, ultimately choosing the one she felt most beautiful and comfortable in. “I wanted something timeless,” says Lauren Grace of her Martina Liana gown. “When I saw the pictures, I was like ‘Yeah, no-brainer.’ This was definitely the right one.”
