Marilyn Knipp

I have been officiating at weddings for many years and have a vast array of ideas to add to this creative process. From the church to the haunted house, to the park, the back yard, the beach, in hot air balloons, in the grand ballroom or on horseback in a field, where ever you want to gather your community, we’ll plan a ceremony that represents you and honors this beginning of your marriage.

Weddings are celebrations! We will celebrate your marriage as well as celebrating your relationships with the people who have been special parts of your lives. So let’s plan a ceremony which is real, personal, and a true celebration of your step into your marriage. It can include the traditional as well as the unique. Tell me what will delight you on this day and we’ll go from there.


  • We just got married in April 2017 by Marilyn Knipp and we couldn’t have asked for a better officiant!! We met Marilyn a few months before the wedding to get to know each other, but it was more like a session to understand yourself better. I learned so much about myself and what I wanted out of my relationship/marriage, as did my husband. Marilyn made us feel totally relaxed and brought us together during a really stressful time in our lives. I felt like she was my long lost mother that I could talk to and feel at ease with 🙂 Marilyn tailored our wedding based on our personalities – we wanted something laid back and fun yet still have the romantic aspect of the ceremony. She also made all our guests feel included and brought good vibes. I’m so happy we chose Marilyn to be our officiant. Thank you for making us laugh and lifting our spirits and overall helping us have the wedding of our dreams!!!

  • Marilyn was awesome, and I appreciate all the hard work she put in to making the ceremony go off without a hitch.
  • We wanted to reach out and say how great Marilyn was. She actually married Brandon’s sister 8 years ago, did our wedding, and will be doing our best man’s wedding in September this year. From our initial meet-and-greet at Starbucks, to our phone call a week before, and our rehearsal, we were continually impressed by her energy, enthusiasm and ability to walk us through everything. It was reassuring, calming, and we always knew we were in good hands with her. We were very happy with our ceremony and heard great comments from our guests about it.

  • Young Hip & Married came highly recommended after our friends had used them for their September wedding last year. We contacted them and had nothing but a great experience from day 1. Marilyn was extremely helpful in planning our ceremony and the day couldn’t have gone better! Highly recommend her or anyone else from Young Hip & Married – thanks for making our wedding memorable!
