Burlap + Bling Wedding Inspiration

Ok. Before we jump into this next post, I have an admission to make. This Inspired Creations Contest entry is one of my hands-down personal favorites. Surely I can’t really pick a favorite. They’re sort of like children. They’re all unique and gorgeous and endlessly inspiring in their own way, but something about the romantic all-white color palette and the sweet shabby chic inspired details of this design from Cedarwood Weddings and Kristyn Hogan has me dreaming of getting married all over again. The mix of neutrals and the blend of rustic burlap paired with an abundance of candlelight is simple yet cozy and inviting. Oh, and please don’t get me started on the amazing cake. I swear it’s the wedding cake of my dreams.

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. I just can’t say enough. Or I could talk all day and say too much. I think you get my drift. A huge thank you to Cedarwood Weddings and Kristyn Hogan for blowing me away.

This is dreamy… love the brooches tied around the candles.

Thank you so much for the feature! This set up was so breathtaking, made me want to get married all over again! Cedarwood is just too good!

Obsessed. So pretty & such an inspiration for Brides!

I love burlap! I have a big ole file on my desktop full of burlap inspiration. I’m especially loving such a fresh look at burlap. Mixing with blingy chandeliers and romantic white candlesticks is gorgeous, and brilliant!

Oh I have to agree with you here ;-))) Love the soft and dreamy white…with burlap – well it’s just over the moon!! So many fabulous details too. And I love the location of the shoot!
Fabulous job!!!!

Looks amazing! The candlelight and the strung lights couldn’t have been more perfect!

I love the simplistic beauty of this colour scheme.


Fabulous! The scene absolutely glows. Beautiful setting for a reception. Can’t tear myself away from these amazing photos.

The creativity of the staff at Cedarwood never ceases to amaze me. Love the sparkle of candlelight against the white background and the soft elegance of the burlap. Perfection.


Love, love, love the neutral color palette. So soft and romantic.

Blown Away! Once again reminded how perfectly unique every single wedding at Cedarwood turns out. I’m not sure even the Royal wedding can top this one.

THAT is beautiful! So many ideas to pull for just home and no wedding. I love bling! lol


Love it , Love it !!! The simplicity and color scheme of this wedding is amazing! I love all the candlelight and of course the bling factor!! The baby’s breath makes it look very soft and adds to the romance of the whole scene. The burlap also adds just that little something extra. And as always Cedarwood out does themselves and makes it even more special and amazing!


The whole look is sooo romantic! As a future bride, I love the soft glow of all the candles on everything ( especially on all the bling) and the burlap gives it just a little something extra. This is a great idea and gives me much to think about!


Love It, Love It!!! The all white color scheme, with all the candles is amazing! And of course all the bling just makes it look even better! It is very soft and romantic and the burlap gives it just that little something special! And as always, Cedarwood has out done themselves! They are completely awesome!


Great palette, amazing combination of textures, nice blend of shapes. And the details….so many things to catch the eye and tie the whole package up beautifully. This is spot on! As usual, the team at Cedarwood has done it again.

WOW! This is stunning and so elegant. Every detail is captured perfectly!

All white has this vintage-y style which I have been dreaming of ever since as a theme. :) All of the details in this kind of wedding is perfect.

this is the most beautiful set up we have ever seen! it transforms the occasion into a dream, and we love every single sparkly detail!

Okay…questions for the bride!!
Where did you get that adorable cake table! I’ve been looking for something exactly like that for my wedding.
Also, those favor bags are super cute! Did you make them yourselves? We are baking homemade cookies for our favors and wanted something cute like that to put them in!

Thanks in advance,
