Rev. Donna Lind has officiated at hundreds of weddings, large and small, and loves working with committed couples to create ceremonies and celebrations custom-designed to meet their needs and fulfill their dreams. Contact her now to set up your appointment or get more information.
Rev. Donna’s Philosophy
Ordained as a New Thought minister in 1992 and as a Unity Minister in 1996, Rev. Lind was Senior Minister at Unity Chapel in Hemet, CA, for 15 years, from 2000 to November 2015. Previously she ministered in Kelowna, B.C., Canada.
The New Thought movement is an umbrella term for diverse beliefs that emphasize practically oriented spirituality promoting wholeness in living through constructive thinking, meditation, prayer and the realization of the presence of God. New Thought, which is more than a century old, includes Unity, Religious Science (Science of Mind), Divine Science, and other groups.
In her capacity as wedding officiant, Rev. Lind has united hundreds of couples, each ceremony tailored exactly to the desires of the clients. “I believe that each couple has the right to decide the makeup of their own wedding ceremony and so invite the couple’s input in all phases of its creation. I have married people of all faiths, and no faith; people who wish highly creative ceremonies and others who want plain and simple.
“I have married couples on a ski hill in Canada in the midst of a blizzard, on a beach in Kauaii with sunbathers as interested witnesses, in living rooms, parks, back gardens, and even golf courses. So whether you want a chapel wedding or simple a back garden wedding, I can help you create the wedding of your dreams.”
So whatever your idea is of a perfect wedding, Rev. Lind will meet with you and together you will build a ceremony that will reflect who you are as individuals and a couple.
ADDITIONAL CEREMONIES AND SERVICES
As well as Weddings, Rev. Lind performs Quincineras, Holy Unions, Christenings and Vow Renewals.
Rev. Lind can assist you in many ways in preparing for your ceremony. She can help you select the music, either live or recorded.
Rev. Lind also can also recommend local florists, photographers and musicians, as well as appropriate reception sites.
Whatever the occasion, we want this to be a very special day for you, and, although we have guidelines and suggestions for ceremonies, you have the final decision. Our focus is on your love and commitment as we share in the joy of your great event.
