Our wedding was truly the best day of our lives – and Young Hip and Married was a huge part of that. We knew Stephen Anderson was the officiant for us immediately during our initial call when he expressed his passion for sharing couples love stories and understood our vision for a ceremony with emotion and also lots of laughter.

Without a doubt our custom ceremony was our favourite part of the day, and we still have our guests commenting on how it was theirs as well. We will forever treasure the beautiful ceremony Stephen wrote for us and cannot thank him enough for making our dream day a reality.

If you are debating a custom ceremony – do not think any longer!! It is sooo worth it! And Stephen is AMAZING and we have no doubt would be a worthwhile addition to any other couple’s wedding day.

Beth from Young Hip and Married did our ceremony. In terms of designing the ceremony, she was meticulous in her detail researching our story and was responsive to our needs and suggestions. The ceremony itself was exactly as we had hoped for. She spoke very well and we really appreciated her calmness and energy.

We loved our experience with Young Hip and Married! We chose Shalom to officiate our wedding and she was amazing! So kind and helpful throughout the entire process and really listened to what we were looking for for our ceremony.

We had so many people tell us how much they loved the ceremony and the way Shalom told our story and we couldn’t have agreed more! She not only made us feel calm and excited about the ceremony (in the lead-up, at the rehearsal, and on the day) but made the entire experience feel so smooth, letting us just focus on taking in the moment.

Our ceremony was happy, quick (we wanted short and sweet), and with the perfect combination of laughter and beautiful “aww” moments. We can’t thank Shalom enough for the work she put into our day and for the absolutely wonderful delivery of our ceremony. It was everything we wanted and more!

From the very first (zoom) meeting, Lani was warm and delightful and engaged. In our wedding prep meeting, she listened actively to our whole love story. She guided us through the process of preparing our ceremony and gave us tons of options to customize it to fit us, from the broad strokes of the structure of the ceremony and mood to the micro details of her script.

At the rehearsal, she wrangled our highly distractable wedding party with skill. At the wedding she inspired laughter and tears in all the best ways. Lani and Young Hip and Married helped absolutely make our day. If you’re considering working with them, absolutely pounce on that opportunity.

We had a fantastic experience using Young Hip & Married. Jordan was our officiant and he had lovely energy for our day and was very supportive in preparing for our ceremony. We loved what he created for his script and the poems he suggested. If you are looking for a very personalized ceremony, this is a great choice!

Rhona Segarra was a joy to work with in officiating our multi cultural wedding blending two different traditions into a beautiful cohesive ceremony. She took the time to know us well, allowed us to co-write her part of the ceremony with her, projected heartfelt warmth and love, and brought many happy tears to the day. We recommend her wholeheartedly as a wedding officiant.

Rhona, you BROUGHT DOWN THE HOUSE! Thank you a millions times over, you were amazing! Your words and the way you spoke it was just exceptional. We felt such warmth and love and support from you and this just added to all the love in the room. We felt connected to you when we first zoom-met and you were the absolute right person to share our love with the world. Thank you!

Sarah was warm, friendly, and so on top of everything from our first meeting with her, and we absolutely loved working with her!

She responded to any questions we had super quickly, kept us on track by scheduling meetings at mid-way points to go over the ceremony, and was so patient with our indecision on some elements. Sarah also came to our rehearsal in the rain and was still smiling and so positive, and helped make sure everything went smoothly.

The day of, the personalized vows she wrote were perfect – she paid so much attention to what we’d told her about ourselves and our values. Our friends and family can’t stop talking about the ceremony and most of them cried. We’ll never forget it, and we’re so grateful to Sarah! We’d give our highest recommendations to Sarah and to Young Hip and Married.

We worked with Erika from YH&M for our wedding at Camp Fircom. Her energy was great, we really clicked, and she was open to doing the ceremony different ways if we wanted, which was really comforting and refreshing for us. Before our second meeting she sent us what she had been working on, it was amazing, truly brought tears to our eyes.

For the actual event, Erika was awesome. At the beginning of the ceremony, her presence commanded attention but not in an overbearing way at all. As soon as we were there, she made us the focal point without us feeling nervous at all. The words she spoke were just as good as when we read them for the first time. She was engaging, she had warmth, and she spoke with meaningfulness.

I would recommend YH&M and Erika to anyone, you’ll get a ceremony you’ll remember for all the right reasons!

The team at Young Hip & Married was so wonderful to work with. We were a bit last minute in choosing an officiant and they were very prompt in responding and so accommodating.

We chose Shawn as our officiant and he was so considerate and attentive to what we wanted. He was very professional, collaborative and mindful of what we wanted. We also had a small emergency on the day of our rehearsal and he was so kind while we sorted it out. Once we got the rehearsal going, he was so helpful and everyone knew exactly what they had to do on the day of.

Shawn put together such a beautiful ceremony and loved what everything he said. We received so many compliments from our guests! Highly recommend Shawn and the team at YH&M!

We got married in Calgary, and Sarah Kemmers from YH+M was our officiant. We had the custom ceremony package, and Sarah was perfect! She really took the time to get to know us and our love story, spoke to our loved ones, and took that information to write a beautiful script with love and good humour that spoke to us perfectly.

One of us uses gender-neutral pronouns and she made us both feel comfortable and included the entire time. At the wedding, the guests loved her ceremony, and she was friendly, kind, and supportive. We would both give more stars if we could!
