Wow, that’s weird. Usually the wood darkens with epoxy the same as with water. Was the epoxy noticeably dark, possibly due to age? Were there any additives? @RobHannon is spot on with 207 being the clearest epoxy you’ll be able to find.

One thing you might consider is some sort of sanding sealer on the cedar prior to epoxy, but I would definitely ask on a cedar strip forum to make sure that doesn’t interfere with the bonding of the epoxy. For me, I’d be more concerned about making it waterproof than a darker color. A lot of woods will get darker with age anyway.
