Dale and Rachael made these tea cup light fixtures- Typically mason jar light fixtures hang in barn. Rachael wanted a sophisticated barn wedding so she bought these fixtures for $6 each, painted them white, drilled holes in bottoms of yard sale tea cups and wired them!

Fireworks remind me of the throne room of Heaven. Revelation 4 says that from the throne proceeds lightening's, thundering's and the sound of many voices. Seven lamps of fire burn before the throne. The four living creatures around the throne never tire but every second get a new revelation of the glory of the Lord and day and night never rest saying, "Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!"

    Congratulations Sharon!! So you’ve managed to make me cry as I went through the pics. They’re absolutely beautiful!! It really was a perfect day for Rachel and Jonathan. God’s richest blessing on their marriage, and your family. I’m at work and a colleague passes my desk and wants to know who all these people are? (I sit in an open-plan office.) You must have been tired after all this entertaining. Thanks so much for sharing the pics with us Sharon. You’re truly special!! God bless!!

  2. Beautiful!!!!! congrats!!!

  3. Latosha says:

    Sharon, I agree everything was just so beautiful. I love the theme and all the pastel colors and the sparklers and food. Aah, I felt as if I were there to enjoy Jonathan and Rachael’s special day. Thank you so much for sharing and blessings to you and to your family. (-:

  4. Oh My Goodness!!! What a beautiful wedding! I love all the vintage touches you did in the barn..alot of work, but soooo worth it, I am sure! Absolutely stunning!! Congrats to the happy couple!

  5. Linda Kreitz says:

    Overwhelmed with the creativity!!! Thanks for sharing their day with us!

  6. Lisa Jones says:

  7. Deena Kramer says:

    Oh my what a beautiful wedding! You and your family did an awesome job with everything! (I like how you even got your husband involved with the light fixtures!)

  8. Wow Sharon, thank you for sharing!! What a beautiful wedding, love the personal look and feel! My daughter is only 8 but perhaps we should start preparing our barn now!! 🙂 Obviously God blessed their wedding, asking Him to do the same in their marriage!!

  9. Lori Fitzgald says:

    Sharon — the creativity of every member of your family is incredible!! I just can’t get over the beauty that you make from ‘found’ items!! Having attended what I believe was your first barn wedding, which was absolutely lovely with it’s simple beauty, I am amazed at how much more artistry has been added to this stunning venue!! God given talent abounds with the Glasgows’!! Congratulations to everyone!! (btw – wasn’t beautiful Rachel just in our 6th grade SS class?! My how time truly flies!)

    What an awesome day. You are so creative. Your handiwork will add to the wonderful memories for years to come. I pray God’s blessings over the newly weds and your family.

  11. Rachel Moberley says:

    SO beautiful Sharon, Dale, and Rachael!! Glamorous, elegant, creative. Yum! 🙂 Congratulations!!!

  12. What a beautiful wedding!!!

  13. Thank you for sharing Rachael and Jonathan’s wedding day (and your previous posts on how God brought them together.) Such a beautiful start to their future together. I know this wedding day will continue to bring precious memories to y’all! God’s blessings on this sweet couple.

  14. Thank you. You have no idea the delight this post has brought to my weary heart tonight. So beautiful. I think that “sparkler” pic needs to be framed and hung. It would make the most precious wedding greeting card as well. I love it!!!

    Everything about the wedding takes my breath away. I love the elegance, the simplicity, the “gentleness”, the joy, the love, the tradition. Thank you for allowing us the glimpse into such a treasured moment. May the Lord bless and keep Rachael and Jonathan and may their love for Him and one another continue to grow.

    As a side note, I know that Elaine Rutherford was in attendance. My understanding is that Barbara is a cousin to Elaine…and therefore a cousin to Lois (my Christopher’s girlfriend’s mom). I look forward to hearing more about the wedding through Lois via Elaine.

    The family picture is beautiful as well. Lifting you each up in prayer right now. Thank you for your genuine example of Christ’s love.
    Hugs,
    Joy

    • Thank you Joy! That’s a great idea, I think I will frame that one!! I wish you could have been here to celebrate with us! I’m praying for you, your dad and your family! I love you.

      • Thanks Sharon. Stephanie just pointed out to me that Elaine is actually in the dance pic below the cookie pic 🙂

        Thanks for praying for dad too. He came through the surgery but is currently struggling with an irregular heartbeat. Continuing to pray.
        Sending love your way too,
        Joy

    Hi Sharon,

    Was the wedding at Zoan Baptist Church on Route 3? I think I recognize it. My parents were married there in August 1953. I spent many Sundays there as a child when we’d spend weekends at my maternal grandparents’ farm. So many wonderful memories.

    Best wishes to the newlyweds!
    Linda

  16. Truly too beautiful for words!!!!! No wonder so many weddings in that barn!!! AMAZING. Blessed be the bride and groom all the days of their new life together.

  17. Barbara Curry says:

    Sharon- You did an awesome job putting these pictures together! I so enjoyed reliving that wonderful day! You all worked so hard to make it such a special day. I love to keep coming back and looking at the pictures. Rachael was absolutely gorgeous and Jonathan looked mighty handsome. I just love those 2 so much. It will be exciting to see how the Lord uses them in the coming years in His kingdom. Love you! Barbara

    • Thank you Barbara! I agree with you they were both radiant and I know God is going to do even greater things in them in the coming days! I love you–we are so blessed!!!

  18. Random observation says:

    I’m so like, happy that wedding favors in this case have significance / explaination.

    I get vey confused by bubbles, they pop, and dissappear, Good for kids though.

  19. What an absolutely beautiful wedding! The creativity is amazing and it looks like it was just soooo worth the added work to make the special day! Congratulations to Rachael & Jonathan!
    May the Lord bless you two with a joyful, loving, peaceful and happy life together forever. Surround them Lord with Your hedge of protection and keep them ever in Your will and Your Word. Fill their lives with all Your special blessings and bind them together with Your love O Lord! In Jesus name Amen

  20. This wedding is stunning! Such a dream! What is this venue? I’m getting married in November and am looking for something EXACTLY like it 🙂
