Etheric Connections Crystal Shop and Healing Center is located in Gettysburg PA, we are so much more than a crystal shop and healing center; we are also a wedding officiant for weddings of all sizes.
Rev. Lloyd Runkle is an Ordained Priest, Crystal Shepherd and a Spiritual Alchemist. He performs wedding ceremonies for all that are called to him, he strives to embody Love and encourages all couples to “Just Be Love” while seeking to find enchanted love in every part of your life together.
Etheric Connections provides couples with a friendly and attentive Ordained Priest for many types of ceremonies, we also offer vow renewals. Couples are invited to work with Rev. Lloyd for Spiritual Coaching prior to the service. We will meet before the wedding day to discuss the ceremony. I encourage all couples to be an active participant in writing their own vows. You can work with Rev. Lloyd to add Decrees, poems, songs, readings and more.
You may want to add a few of these to your Ceremony, if you have other wedding rituals that you would like to add please let us know.
Creating your own ceremony can feel overwhelming, we are here to help. There are generations of wedding traditions from around mother earth to help you on this path to becoming one with your “other.” At Etheric Connections, we can help you create something completely new and unique, or we can work with elements and rituals from many traditions. We can pull from Buddhist, Native American, Celtic, Egyptian, Hinduism, Pagan, Shamanic and many other world traditions.
Please let us know your ideas and what your dream wedding looks like, if you can dream it, you can create it. We are honored and blessed to be walking this journey with you. We would love to be a part of an elaborate ceremony or a very basic one, the choice is yours, we are here to walk the journey with you.
If you are looking for a basic ceremony, this is where we will begin
After we pick a ceremony outline and discuss the particulars of your wedding day, it’s time to write your Vows. You may want to write your own vows, pick traditional vows, or have us write them for you. Either way, this is where we discuss how to write or pick your vows, writing your own vows brings more of you into the ceremony. The vows are about two people’s journeys converging and flowing together as two rivers converge and flow together as one.
Your vows may be as little as a few lines, a few paragraphs or a story of lifetimes. This is your day, so it’s your choice. You may include poems, a story, or a letter from the past. This is where you can express the uniqueness of you as individuals, converging and coming together. This comes from the heart and captures the love that you share with each other.
You may keep your vows with you, or we will have them available for you to read at the appropriate time. Write from your heart and hold the vibration of Love while you speak them to your beloved. They can be simple, eloquent or written with the help of a thesaurus, its your day and its your love story to write. We will encourage you to be as involved in writing the vows as you feel comfortable with, we may also nudge you to step away from your comfort zone to express your love in only the way that you can do.
It is my belief that a rehearsal will help you settle into the ceremony; the wedding day can very well be the single biggest event that you have experienced in this lifetime. If you would like a formal rehearsal with everyone practicing their part, or an informal walk through of the ceremony, we will work with you to make it right for you. We will meet the day before to discuss and walk-through the ceremony. This will give us time to visualize the placement of everything and everyone. This is your day; we will make it unique and personal to the two of you.
Your Wedding Day
We will discuss the wedding time, arrival time, special considerations during the rehearsal, should you choose not to have a rehearsal, we will meet prior to the wedding to cover the last-minute details. I am typically available for questions between the hours of 1PM-7PM Monday - Friday.
This is your ceremony and we will work together to create a ceremony that manifest your thoughts and your dreams. This is a transformational event with the convergence of two souls who have found each other in this time and this place. You are worthy of the fulfillment of your hopes and dreams, and Etheric Connections is here to help you bring them to the physical plain. We will take care of the details of the service and the ceremony, you will “Be Love” and fill the world with your Love and Light.
When I arrive at your wedding venue, I will coordinate with the other service providers (photographer, venue staff, etc.…) on the layout and order of the service.
