’70s Inspired Greenhouse Wedding at the Ed Lycan Conservatory

April 7, 2018 | Junebug Weddings

Abigail and Dillon’s wedding at the Ed Lycan Conservatory in Oklahoma City was just the prettiest blast from the past! Using a combination of vintage decor pieces and vintage attire, which included the bride’s yellow and green lace frock, the bridesmaids’ burgundy crushed velvet dresses, and the groomsmen’s mismatched suspenders and vests, the couple put together a display of eye-catching details that made us feel like we hopped back to the best of the ’70s era. The Victorian conservatory had the perfect balance of earthiness and charm to serve as the backdrop, offering the guests the comforts of an indoor wedding while giving them a perfect view of the outdoor beauty. Payton Marie Photography did it again, capturing every inch with intense attention to detail and every moment with the tenderness and grace that showcased Abigail and Dillon’s sincere love and light.

The first look literally took my breath away. We hugged and kissed and embraced the fact that we were really getting married. We hadn’t seen each other all day, so it felt like an epic reunion. Seeing him at that point instantly calmed my nerves.



I loved being surrounded by all of the plant life and greenery in the venue. It was such an open, airy space that had a great history. It is a restored Victorian-era conservatory that houses a succulent garden and year-round tropical plants.

We are inspired by all things vintage. We wanted everything to feel comfortable yet quirky. We were attracted to the aesthetic of the ’70s and decided to draw inspiration from that era. Almost every item came from a thrift or antique store. We scoured flea markets and garage sales to find unique, vintage items. My dad also built a stand for the macrame backdrop at the altar of the ceremony. He has since re-purposed that wood in the form of a farmhouse table. My aunts and cousins even created the garlands that were featured on some of tables, as well as the macrame backdrop.
