Google+The Ultimate Southern Burlap Finalists: Cedarwood + Kristyn Hogan - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Welcome back to the world of weddings, y’all! We have some fun posts ready to go this week. In addition to the usual real weddings, we’re excited to be presenting the finalists in our most recent Ultimate Southern Challenge over the next few days! The focus this time around was on burlap. Our finalists really went above and beyond, with several putting together full shoots involving our favorite rough and tumble material! Let’s get started!

The talented team at Cedarwood Weddings is known for their creativity, so we were not surprised to find a detail-filled submission from them! Kristyn Hogan photographed everything to perfection. Here’s a look at the unique ideas they put together:

To start, Linda and her team worked with Designs in Paper to develop a sophisticated stationery suite. We love the vertical burlap belly band – a twist on the usual horizontal version!

The Cedarwood team used large sheets of burlap (purchased from a local fabric store) to create burlap wall panels. The letters were cut from gray suede fabric and attached to the burlap with brads. The panels were installed with rods and brackets. These would be such a good idea for a Southern photobooth or ceremony backdrop, or to hide a less-than-desirable corner of your venue!

For the table tops, Cedarwood ordered French grain sacks in burlap from Online Fabric Store and stitched them together to create rustic runners. Side note: How cute are those mini cookies??

Finally, the team set up a gourmet popcorn bar in lieu of favors. They used burlap bags and suitcases from Save on Crafts as containers, and put together a handmade burlap bunting and quilted sign for the backdrop. Popcornopoly in Nashville supplied the treats!

WHEW, y’all! So many fabulous burlap ideas, and that’s just ONE entry! Thanks so much, Linda + Kristyn! Readers, if you love this idea, be sure to let us know in the comments! And remember, you’re welcome to give a vote of support to more than one concept.

Cedarwood Weddings is a fabulous member of our Blue Ribbon Vendor Directory!

    I am getting married at Cedarwood on May 25th, and Kristyn Hogan will be capturing my wedding on film. I am so lucky that these creative minds who love what they do are involved in my very own special day (which will also include LOTS of burlap!) Thanks Southern Weddings for always posting such beautiful and inspirational things! You are by far by favorite wedding blog!

    Love, love, love Cedarwood weddings! Also love the way they have used burlap! My son and his bride were married at Cedarwood about 11/2 years ago and they, too, used a lot of burlap! It was fabulous and so uniquely them! Linda and her team are masters at creating the most beautiful and unique weddings, no matter what the style!
