We’re so excited to bring to you a stylized wedding by Poke Craft Co. and friends! If you’re looking for inspiration on how to personalize your own wedding decor with the help of Poke, look no further!
We styled this wedding with the help of Ally from ALN Images as a way of exploring the wonderful ways to make a small wedding as Instagram-worthy as any huge ballroom venue. Taking advantage of a gorgeous outdoor space, we decided to lean in to the local elements. Logs framed focal points and doubled as candle holders. Wood and greenery were our palette. The color scheme incorporated pops of teal and lavender to make just a few elements stand out from the earthtones and spring tones of the natural scenery. We went for a mix and match design, utilizing elements that were on hand, but keep it coordinated by sprinkling in thematic natural elements and the gorgeous floral elements that were effortless and whimsical, designed by Ruby Rivers Flora.

Crafting a Customized, Cohesive Tablescape
Instead of traditional paper table place settings, we were inspired by the rustic log decor used throughout the design. So, we used small slices of branches as the base of our table settings, printing each guest’s name on a slice, then arranging it beautifully with some flowers and branches. The result was this gorgeous tablescape.
And to number the tables, we’ve integrated the table numbers into a simple, elegant centerpiece. Wrapping a mason jar in twine and lace and topping off with a lovely bundle of flowers, these table numbers blend in perfectly as part of the decor.
Optimizing Small Spaces
When designing for a small wedding, space can be quite limiting. So, we had to make the best use of table space we could. Rather than a paper menu at each setting, we created an acrylic menu, painted and printed with the menu. We stood them on small wooden easels at either end of the table to be visible to everyone at the table:
To give the traditional guestbook a clever twist, we used the initial for the new couple’s last name and turned it into a signing station. The signed letter can then be hung as part of the new couple’s home decor. For years to come, the happy couple can enjoy the memory of their friends joining in the celebration of their life together.
And to keep the guests’ hands comfortable while sipping their favorite beverage, we monogrammed coozies in the wedding design’s main color of seafoam green – but a special one for the bride and groom, of course!
