I'm Russ Camarda and I created Quintessence Ministry, with some specific goals in mind - to recognize the union of two souls as an incredibly sacred event - a very special "story" to tell. A story deserving of mindful celebration rooted in universal values like unconditional love. And for us to deliver that story in a way that is memorable, sacred and unique to your audience. Our officiants are nondenominational, guided by an inclusive spiritual philosophy that honors the wisdom and light found within all faith traditions, while remaining independent of any one religion's specific orthodoxy.
Quintessence is a New York State Recognized Religious Corporation. Not an "Online Ordination". Unlike traditional religious ministers, our celebrants are free to thoughtfully incorporate any diverse customs, rituals, or spiritual meanings of value to you, into your ceremony. We collaborate with you to tailor the script with the words, symbols and cultural elegance that most authentically resonate and bless your sacred bond.
By using a Quintessence Ministry officiant, your ceremony can be woven with spiritual truth and wisdom that calls forth human unity, sacredness, and the unifying power of selfless love - setting this intention to anchor your matrimonial journey ahead - based on higher ideals. We offer this as a special gift for you to consider as you embark on a lifetime together.
