Lucinda is an ordained, Interfaith Minister. She graduated from and was ordained by One Spirit Interfaith Seminary, New York, NY and founded Vows & Kisses, a Wedding Officiant service, in 2009. As an experienced Wedding Officiant she provides excellent support and guidance, ensuring that a couple’s wedding ceremony is meaningful and memorable. Her studies of World Religion and Indigenous Spiritual traditions have deepened her passion for including wedding rituals in non-religious, spiritual, and religious ceremonies. It is her experience that by including a ritual in a wedding ceremony, the couple and their guests experience a deeper connection and understanding of love. (See the Rituals page for more information.)
While serving as a Celebrant, Spiritual Practitioner, and raising her five wonderful sons in Santa Cruz County, she worked as an Executive Assistant. Three years ago Lucinda relocated to California Wine Country and lives in Santa Rosa, CA, with her dear companion, Shadow (a German Shepard). She works part time as an Executive Assistant and loves volunteering at Kaiser Permanente Hospital and Merrill Gardens as a Spiritual Care provider.
Lucinda has supported couples from all over the world who desire a destination wedding in Napa, Sonoma, San Francisco, Bodega Bay, and many other locations. From large formal ceremonies, to simple civil ceremonies, elopements, and vow renewals, Lucinda is happy to support your vision and provide insight and guidance to ensure that your ceremony is special. Having studied conversational Spanish, it brings great joy for her to now offer bilingual ceremonies.
Lucinda believes that celebration and ceremony is the glue keeping heart strings together.
