It was so easy to coordinate our elopement ceremony with YH&M. We reached out via email about a month beforehand, told them our date, and we were good to go. They also sourced a photographer for us. We were able to communicate easily with our office contact at YH&M, our officiant (Jane, who was awesome!), and our photographer (Emily, who was also awesome!). All were helpful and professional. It was very affordable as well. Also, since we were eloping, it gave us peace of mind to know we could rely on them to understand any legal components of getting married in a country outside our residence. Thanks, YH&M!Mason & Hana
YH&M was the perfect choice for us. They were professional and very easy to deal with. Answered any questions we had immediately and made the whole process simple. Jonathan, who married us was amazing! We met him over FaceTime and the decision was clear. He was professional, kind, personable and cool. We felt like we’d known him forever; he made us feel so comfortable. Our families also commented on how great he was. We couldn’t be happier with our choice.Riley Flynn
Best decision we’ve ever made!! My husband and I had Shawn officiate and from the moment we met him, we knew he was our guy! The whole process was smooth and stress free but what amazed me the most was how he was able to capture us so perfectly as a couple. He set the tone for our perfect day and made it better than we could’ve ever imagined!!!Dan & Beca
Choosing Young Hip & Married was the best decision we made for our big day. Jane, our officiant, was not only professional, communicative and flexible, she was also fun and made us feel so at ease and happy on our day. We flew in to Vancouver from Australia, and we eloped in beautiful Stanley Park. The day before we were married my husband and I explored the park and found the perfect spot. I emailed Jane a snapshot of the spot on google maps and that was that! If you’re looking for a fun, sweet and relaxed day or maybe something a little different I highly recommend Young Hip & Married! Thanks for everything guys!Jack & Amy
Doug and I would like to thank you guys SO much for making our day so special. Big shout out to Cory for helping us out and nailing the speech. Our guests were so impressed with how personal you made the ceremony. It really did make our day that much more personal and fun! If we could have rated you 10 stars we would haha We will also be recommending you guys to our friends who are looking to get hitched in the coming years.Meghan & Doug
Our parents thought we were crazy when we said we wanted to fly Shawn up to Powell River to officiate our wedding. Within moments of Shawn running through the rehearsal, they understood why and were happy we did! Shawn was DEFINITELY the highlight of our day! The ceremony was more than we could have imagined or even come close to constructing ourselves. Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding, Shawn. You are doing amazing work and our only hope is that you’re still around in 10 years to renew our vows (hopefully next time in Hawaii).Jess & Chris
We had a great experience with Young, Hip and Married even if we were none of these. Jef was a wonderful marriage officiant. We appreciated his care and goodwill and could feel how much he loves doing this. Communication with the office goddess was smooth and easy.Andy & Stevie
Kristen we wanted to say thanks again for being part of our ceremony. You made both Brandon and I feel so comfortable, and you really were the perfect person to marry us. We could not have asked for anyone better.Hailey & Brandon
Shawn and Erica Miller from Young Hip and Married were fabulous to work with. They gave my husband and I all the liberties we wanted to have the wedding we wanted. Our wedding was perfect in every way. From Shawn’s beautiful words, to our own vows, to the gorgeous location and perfect weather. We can’t wait to see the pictures Erica took throughout our day! Thank you Shawn and Erica for giving Ian and I a wedding day we will never forget!Becky & Ian
From our initial point of contact right through to our wedding day, everything went so smoothly. My partner and I weren’t sure what exactly we wanted our wedding ceremony to be like, but Terry helped us create a ceremony that was a true reflection of who we are as a couple. Terry was super accommodating, personable, helpful and so much fun to work with. We felt like he really got to know us and our wedding ceremony was personal, unique, and completely captured our values and personalities. It was better than we could have even imagined and was definitely the highlight of our day!Natasha and George
It was such a pleasure to meet you Randy! Thank you so for such a wonderful elopement! You made our simple legal ceremony a fun and memorable experience! It was so nice to have a second Kits beach ceremony that was super low-key and less stressful than the actual day. We really appreciate you working with our spur of the moment schedule as well!
I would recommend Young Hip & Married for any wedding or elopement for sure!Tanya
Lani made our wedding extra special. In fact we would not have been able to get married without her. All we knew was that we were in love and wanted to get married in a park. She helped us have a wedding more amazing than we could have ever imagined.
Thank you again Kristen, for doing such an amazing job with our ceremony. Everyone told us that it was so clearly a reflection of us and that makes us so happy! We’ve just returned from our honeymoon and have been looking at the footage that our videographer shot of the ceremony—it brings tears of happiness to our eyes!Eliza and Ryan
Shawn accommodated us in every way possible, from not having a real location set when we booked, to changing the time and then trekking down a hiking path on a dreary Saturday in January. He made me feel so at ease and added personal details to our ceremony which made it even more amazing. I couldn’t imagine having anyone else there that day.Christina
Jef Young was our Officiant. He was fantastic! We received a lot of compliments about our ceremony which could not have happened without his doing. He added some special touches that meant a lot to us. We are super grateful to him!!He did a great job at customizing a service for us that fit our personalities. Utilizing their website and securing the date were all very easy. Though I am happy to say I will never need their services again, I very much recommend them to anyone else!!! Thank you for making our experience stress-free and memorable!!!Tamara
Kristen, we wanted to thank you so much for making our wedding ceremony so meaningful. You made the entire process enjoyable and we have received so many compliments on our fabulous officiant!Brittany & Nate
We had Shawn Miller officiate our wedding and he was absolutely amazing from start to finish! We were looking for an officiant who was NOT BORING! Meeting with Shawn for the first time, he made us both really excited for the ceremony and seemed like the perfect. He said you sometimes go to weddings where the ceremony is the most boring part but yet it is the most important and meaningful part of the day. We both completely agreed and wanted to ensure our ceremony was the most meaning part of our day so hiring him to be our officiant was an easy choice! Leading up to our wedding, Shawn put together a beautiful outline of what we would expect during the ceremony. It was extremely personalized and engaging which was exactly what we were hoping for. He came up with ideas and details we both never would have thought of and loved everything he suggested! Immediately following our ceremony along with following the days after our wedding, we continued to receive many amazing comments from our guests saying how they never have been apart of a more beautiful ceremony before ours. Looking back on our amazing day, our ceremony was definitely our favorite part of our day and we will never forget it! Thank you so much Shawn – we are so grateful to have found you!Karly & Wade
We are from out of town and Lani made everything so easy for us and graciously answered all of our questions. When we met Lani, we instantly felt comfortable and knew we were in good hands. Everything went smoothly (and with some fun laughs!) and we were impressed with the connection she made with us, even though we did a smaller elopement ceremony. A big thank you to Lani and Young Hip & Married for making our day so beautiful.
Cory was awesome! He delivered our story in a way that made our guests feel like they were there throughout our journey together. He was able to incorporate cultural traditions like the cord and the veil ceremony but made it more modern. We loved everything about our ceremony!Marie and Mahmoud
We will look back on our wedding ceremony with gigantic smiles, largely thanks to our wedding officiant and cool guy, Terry Shea. We had a short, relaxed and playful ceremony, which Terry easily balanced with kind words, wise phrases and a bit of tradition – it was absolutely beautiful. Terry is very thoughtful and takes the time to get to know you as a couple but also as a family. He is also patient, organized, and genuine. We love Terry and you will too!!!
Young, Hip and Married is also a great company. They checked-in on us regularly (but not too often) to make sure things were running smoothly and are a super nice and friendly bunch!
High Fives all around!Anonymous
Everything about Young Hip and Married was fabulous. We were so well looked after from the first point of contact to the ceremony itself. We had the pleasure of being married by Jodi and she did an amazing job. Thank you, YH&M!Mascha & Nicholas
Shawn from Young, Hip, and Married was the officiant for our wedding in October 2016. Communication leading up to the wedding was prompt, the script he produced was fantastic and wonderfully tailored to us, and he made sure that everything went incredibly smoothly. YHM are paragons of professionalism, right down to the wedding rehearsal (which I highly recommend you take advantage of). I have literally no complaints about them and, were I to do it all over again, I’d still go with YHM. They’re not the cheapest, but you absolutely get what you pay for.Geoff Fisher
Best ceremony ever. Highly recommend Mark. He made the ceremony very interesting and personal. We received a lot of compliments from the guests as well. – SaharSahar
We feel very blessed to be married by such a genuine and loving person as yourself – thank you for working so hard to make it all perfect for us. It was the most wonderful day of my life so far and I still feel like I am in a dream. Thank you for your blessings in our marriage.Amanda & Scott
Gwen was prompt and organized in answering our queries about availability and setting up a time and date to plan. We live in another province so she quickly set up a Skype call with us so that she could get to know us, all about our values, interests, and relationship. She sent us detailed information about the ceremony and supported us in writing our vows.
At the rehearsal, she had excellent ideas about staging and was very efficient about timing. Her calm and friendly manner put everybody at ease, and her sense of humour invited everyone into the process. She was extremely interested in making our ceremony amazing. She calmed any nerves, questions or concerns we might have had.
The ceremony Gwen delivered was absolutely beautiful! Her words were beautifully chosen, and so fitting with our personalities, values, and relationship. We felt showered with love! Gwen made the
celebration of our marriage absolutely perfect! Our guests consistently commented on the beauty of our ceremony, the words chosen, and how much it fit with us! Many marveled that the words of both of our vows matched the words in the ceremony very consistently. That’s how in tune Gwen was with us as a couple. We cannot thank her enough for the respectful, enthusiastic, organized and heartfelt way she worked with us. She helped us plan the perfect ceremony to start our marriage and life together!Ginger & Todd
Had an amazing experience with young, hip and married. Could not recommend them enough! Lani was our officiant and she made our ceremony so personalized to us as a couple. We absolutely loved her.Ashley Hall
We are a same-sex couple and it was really important for us to have a supportive and open-minded officiant and we were not disappointed. The service was beautiful and the photographer and officiant were so helpful with the whole process, which made everything easy for us, allowing us to focus on getting married and having a wonderful time! We had an elopement style, destination wedding and orchestrating it from a different country wasn’t a problem at all! We are so happy we had them for our wedding ceremony and we highly recommend them! – Megan & SashaMegan & Sasha
Young Hip and Married provided a very relaxed environment. They were very professional, and helped to provide a very heartfelt ceremony. Highly recommend themKristen & John
Jane was an absolute joy to work with. On the day of the wedding, she made us feel reassured throughout the day by being capable, clear and made us laugh at the right times to ease our nerves. The service was everything we defined at the beginning–short, fun and meaningful. We also did pre-marriage counseling with her, which I recommend doing. Our sessions brought a couple things to light that were helpful to talk through before our big day. Jane is a smart, funny, all around wonderful person whose intuitive nature makes her the perfect person to officiate your wedding.Matt & Meghan
YH&M is exactly what we were looking for, filling the gap between a religious ceremony and a Marriage Commissioner. Jane Halton officiated for us, and her style and charm really won over our guests. Thanks!Matthew Bergmann
Our experience with young hip and married was fantastic. We were paired with Jane who made sure our ceremony fit us as a couple. We were able to explain to her how we wanted our guests to feel at our wedding and she did exactly that. Everyone said it was heartfelt and romantic. She also went as far to use some readings we liked and reached out to our friends to get to know us better. She was with us through the whole process, beginning to after the ceremony. We can’t recommend this company enough.Emily & Mitch
Our officiant was Lani Brunn and she was amazing. She made us feel comfortable and at ease. She was very organized and meshed well with our parents and bridal party. She kept everyone in check as well. We really appreciated the uniqueness of YHM’s style of officiating. They were also very professional and made sure we were happy with whomever we were hiring. I would definitely recommend Lani Brunn at YHM.Birinder + Laurel
Thank you so much — you did a wonderful job as our officiant. We had family members telling us this was the best wedding they had ever attended, and everyone loved how you conducted the ceremony (us included!).Kevin & Yu-Ru
My partner and I were married in a North Vancouver forest by Shawn and Erica was our photographer. We were looking for a very personal, private and intimate ceremony and that is exactly what we got. Shawn lead us through a beautiful ceremony and gave us some guidance before the ceremony that really helped my husband and I lock into each other and reason we were there together. Shawn has a way of guiding the ceremony, while stepping back enough for us to feel like we were there alone. This made it easy to be our authentic selves in that moment, there was no show. This naturally led to a flood of emotion for both of us, as we felt the weight of our love, the significance of our bond, and the deep appreciation and gratitude that we have for each other.
Erica did a wonderful job of capturing the moment with beautiful and candid photographs of the ceremony and the hour following. The pictures are great!
In addition to the wedding day, they were both very helpful prior to the wedding, helping when we asked for guidance (e.g., alternative ceremony locations for rainy day and where/how to get our marriage license). They always answered the phone when I called with a question. We really feel that they were there for us before and during the wedding.
If you are considering a wedding officiant and/photographer we highly recommend Shawn and Erica. I cannot imagine a better couple to have there supporting a bride and groom on your wedding day. We are so grateful that Shawn and Erica were a part of this significant and special day.
Our Officiant Terry Shea was delightful, helpful and warm. We were very happy to have found him through Young Hip & Married. Their site also made booking and paying for the service pretty easy!
Shawn Miller performed our ceremony and he executed it perfectly – exactly what we wanted for our big day! He customised our ceremony to suit our personalities and it was very fun and engaging but captured the importance of the decision we were making to spend our lives together. Our guests commented over and over again on how much they enjoyed our ceremony! I would recommend Young Hip and married to anyone getting married – especially if you want something a little bit extraordinary! Thank you so much Shawn!Megan Hyams
The BEST! I wish there were more than 5 stars because they deserve all the stars! Our wedding day could not have been any more perfect. They did a great job making it casual, personal, and unique. There was no stress, no complications, and tons of good vibes.Caitlin & Christopher
Young hip and married, owned by a wonderful couple will listen to what you want and bend over backwards to make it happen! They want this experience to be truly what you dreamt of. Personally, I went with them specifically because they would meet me anywhere in Vancouver I desired. I picked Stanley park which made the ceremony and photos even more memorable. If all you want is to run away and elope, they are the crew for you. These people made my dreams come true!Jayd & Cody
- I wanted to write a little note to thank Young, Hip and Married (and especially our officiant Mark) for providing us with the most perfect officiant experience possible. Mark exceeded our expectations! He was funny, approachable, professional, and overall just a pleasure to work with. We loved hearing our story and so did our family and friends. Almost everyone asked us who he was and how we chose him – including our photographers.
We got married at Cave Spring Vineyard (through Inn on the Twenty), and I think every wedding ever performed here has had a particular local officiant (who I’m sure is also very good). In the weeks leading up to our wedding, the venue, our photographer, the florist, and pretty much anyone else who is familiar with this venue expressed shock at the fact that we weren’t going with the status quo. Afterwards though, all of these people approached us for information on Young, Hip and Married. Our photographers said ours was the best wedding ceremony they have ever seen.
Thank you again YH&M and especially Mark for making our day unique and unforgettable! We will be recommending you to anyone and everyone we know!!Brianna
Bobbi was professional but you felt like you were also talking to a friend. She was lovely!!Beth
Randy Hamm at helped us to create the most special part of our wedding! We have heard over and over from friends and family that it was the best ceremony they have ever attended. And we may be biased, but we could not agree more. It absolutely exceeded our VERY high expectations and has been permanently etched in our hearts. We knew we weren’t the type of couple who wanted to get the ceremony over and done with and onto the party; we really wanted to create a ceremony that would capture who we are and allow us to express our love and commitment in front of our witnesses. We had a Skype meeting with three officiants and right after talking to Randy, we knew he was “the one”. He was an amazing listener and communicator, on top of being an awesome person! We expressed to him our vision for the ceremony – that we wanted it to be loving and meaningful, a little funny, but not a joke, and most importantly, very “us”. Randy respected and delivered this from start to finish. Our second meeting was in person at a pub. We got along brilliantly with Randy. He asked us thoughtful questions and enabled us to open up right away. He talked us through sample ceremonies, answered all of our many questions and reinforced we had made the right decision. He knew how much we loved beer, so even suggested a beer toast instead of champagne, which we ended up doing, and it was perfect! After our meetings, he shared sample readings and questions to help us write our vows. And when it came down to that difficult task, he was right there with us, making sure one of us didn’t upstage the other and making suggestions. For the ceremony, he completely set the tone, got the balance of seriousness and light-heartedness and left no dry eyes in the audience! He was an absolutely amazing speaker and added the sweetest personal touches. We also did a quick assessment and counselling session in advance of our marriage. We highly, highly recommend this for all couples!!Ashley & Reiner
- Many thanks Jonathan, for your thoughtful note and part in the ceremony! Together we created a magical memory we’ll cherish forever. Peace and love, Cat & JoeCat & Joe
We are so thankful we went with Young, Hip and Married for our wedding day. Jane was an awesome officiant and made the day very special and Emily the photographer went above and beyond. Thanks again to everyone at Young, Hip and Married for making our day unforgettable.Jenn + Matt
Nothing but THE BEST! Shawn was our officiant, and made our day so smooth, comfortable and intimate. I wouldn’t change a thing. We got our video back last month, and the video really focused and used Shawn’s part as it was so unique and special. I highly recommend this company!Belle & Mike
Anthony’s warm and humorous personality helped Mario and I feel comfortable and at ease on what could have been a stressful day. Every one of our guests commented on how the wedding ceremony was so wonderful and touching. Anthony’s message and style reflected our own hearts to our guests.Mario & Hilda
Working with Shawn and Erica of Young Hip & Married was so awesome! There was so much excitement and high energy right before the ceremony and it was Shawn’s impromptu introduction that really brought us into the moment, setting the soulful intention and deep connected feeling for our ceremony. Even though he had never met us, it was like Shawn really knew us and got what we were all about. The ceremony was so personal and it was really reflective of our values and wants as a couple. We could not be more thrilled. Working with Erica for the photography was equally as awesome. She put us totally at ease and was up for all the silly photo ideas we had. She even walked over to the Olympic stage to take photos of us having our “first dance” at a public concert. Seriously, we can’t say enough good things about Shawn, Erica, and the YH&M Team. We are so happy that they were a part of our joy and we highly recommend them to anyone looking for a unique and personal wedding experience.Kate
“Bobbi was truly the person who was meant to marry us. Once we met her, it felt like we had known her for years. She is such a kind and wonderful person who really brought such a great energy to our ceremony, and helped us tell the story of how we fell in love and had arrived at the day of our wedding. It was us, in every sense. She helped us with our vows and was so in tune with everything that was going on – we really couldn`t have done this without her. Thank you Bobbi!”Emma
In the short time prior to our wedding when we first contacted Young, Hip & Married, they were quick to get back to us and put everything together. Shaun showed up on time and was able to breathe a little air into the situation and calm both me and my wife. The ceremony was great and most people’s favorite memory of the evening. Even though we had been married in Mexico a month prior, we wanted to do something special at our Vancouver reception and Shaun came through in spades!! Thanks again!Justin & Lolita
Jane was a gem. She was easy going and relate-able without being too present. The ceremony was quick but still managed to hold a lifetime of emotion. I couldn’t have imagined things going more smoothly. The YH&M service itself was easy, convenient, attentive, and affordable.
Thank you so much Kristen! It was certainly a magical and beautiful day! Couldn’t have pictured it any other way now. We are so happy and excited for what is next. Thank you so much for helping us commit to each other!Brittany & Nick
Jane is an excellent wedding officiant. We were so happy with the service that she provided. She personalized our ceremony, made us feel at ease, and spoke from the heart. Throughout it all, she was professional, yet warm and personable. She was incredibly open to aspects of our ceremony that were non-traditional. Overall, she inspired a lot of confidence in us, and we are glad she was a part of our ceremony.S & J
When we first met with Jane we were a bit overwhelmed at the idea of planning our ceremony. Through her interview process and subsequent conversations with us she was able to design us a custom ceremony built around our relationship, personalities and beliefs. She kept us on track throughout the whole process and her attention to detail and experience were extremely valuable as it allowed us to focus on other aspects of the wedding. People were blown away by her modern approach and the way she managed to keep people engaged throughout the ceremony. The personalized reading she wrote for us, based on input she gathered from our friends and family, is something we will always remember.Nathan & Sarah
Bobbi was our officiant at our wedding and she was amazing – we couldn’t have asked for anything else. Her words were so touching and moving that there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. I would highly recommend Bobbi, and Young, Hip & Married to everyone.Andrea
Shawn was so helpful and encouraging and kind, which helped so much because we were both pretty nervous. He helped us make our ceremony so unique and specific to us as a couple, and many guests complimented us for not going with a traditional or religious ceremony. He kept both of us and all of our guests engaged in the ceremony and the reason we were there. Thank you, Shawn! We’ll remember you forever!Krystal
Shawn, the officiant, created a beautiful and unique wedding ceremony for us. He was very flexible with our vision of a wedding ceremony. As well, he also gave us some good ideas. It was a good experience and I would recommend Young, Hip & Married for any couple getting married.Jill & George
Just wanted to drop you a quick message to say thank very much for Friday. It was the best day of our lives and we thank you for being a huge part of it. So many people complimented the ceremony. It was brilliant. – CiaranCiaran
AMAZING!! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this company, from initial contact to end of photography with Erica it was all perfect and couldn’t have asked for any improvements. Shawn and Erica are some of the most genuine individuals that we have ever come across. They truly are in this business for the right reasons and their passion is obvious. Our guests were all impressed with officiant services, very personalized and fun. Thank you so much so happy I found Young Hip and Married website!Kyla and Scott
I would highly recommend Young, Hip and Married. Having been to a ceremony by this company in Vancouver, I was so happy to see that they had expanded to Ontario. Mark Groleau was wonderful to work with from our first meeting to our wedding day. Our guests all raved about our ceremony; he managed to tell our story such that it was sentimental, lighthearted and entertaining — just what we had hoped for. We will look back on it and smile for years to come, and hope to see him at some of our friends’ weddings in the future (they are definitely all asking who did the ceremony!).Sarah Burns
We decided to have a very small intimate wedding ceremony with just us, our son and our parents. We opted for Young Hip and Married because we wanted a relaxed ceremony that had some life to it and was fun. We got exactly this. Our officiant was Cory and he exceeded our expectations. After watching his intro video we really liked his energy and after meeting him in person we realized he truly has a genuine love for being a part of marrying couples. We are a little quirky and shared with Cory in advance the sarcastic poems that we had written for one another. We were in awe when Cory had taken what he had learned about us and wrote a funny poem about us which he recited at our ceremony. It was perfectly attuned with our sense of humour and a wonderful addition to our night. He was genuinely interested in learning about our family and taking the time to make sure everything was perfect and relaxed just as we had envisioned. We really couldn’t have asked for a better officiant. Thanks Cory!Guy Dorchester
When I was looking for an officiant for our intimate Deep Cove ceremony, I came across Shawn Miller and the group at Young, Hip and Married. I booked over a year in advance and any time I called or had questions they were responsive, and in the week before the wedding Shawn was available to us via text or email or phone – even when I had a freak out about our marriage license the night before the wedding at 10pm!! Our attendees (5 parents) all said that it was perfect, that it was the best ceremony they had attended in a long time, and that it led them to reflect on the love in their own lives. We would do it again in a heartbeat.Matt & Amalia
We absolutely loved our wedding ceremony! Shawn was amazing, he kept it light-hearted yet sincere. We had many people approach us afterwards to tell us how much they enjoyed it. Shawn made it so easy, right from meeting him for the first time to exchanging vow ideas and finally, our actual ceremony. He was incredibly helpful at our rehearsal, and was there for before and after the ceremony to congratulate us and give us a chance to ask any last minute questions. We will be recommending him to everyone we know!Nick & Miraya
- My husband and I had the pleasure of Jane Halton marrying us in a small elopement with only 6 guests. She showed up early and was extremely pleasant. Explained everything prior to the ceremony and made a short and sweet note about marriage and the importance of each guest in our lives, before going through our vows. She even mailed our wedding license for us! Jane was a wonderful addition to our day and put us both at ease. Thank you, Jane!Matt and LaurenLauren & Matt
- We’re glad we came across Young, Hip and Married and worked with Jane as our wedding officiant. We came to Jane with a very specific idea about a Jewish/secular wedding ceremony, and she jumped right on board. At the start of the planning process she had us fill out a short answer form with questions about us as a couple, how we envisioned the ceremony and what was important to us. This was a valuable aid for us to think about the event. When we wrote the draft of our ceremony, Jane was helpful at making sure the different parts of our ceremony fit together into a whole that was understandable for our guests, flowed well, and was a good mix of explanation and action. She provided an experienced editorial voice that helped us clear up details like who would read which blessing, or whether one part of the ceremony was taking up too much time. The final product turned out beautifully. We had guests comment that they’d never attended a more heartfelt ceremony.Jane was also a neutral centre of authority, which was very much welcome, as both our parents are divorced. During both the rehearsal and the big day itself, she was organized, calm and projected the right mix of solemnity and cheerfulness. Thanks for sharing our wedding day with us!Sara & Art
After 14 years and 2 kids, my partner Jason and I decided to get married. We were delighted with Lani Brunn and how sweet and confident she was. We were able to get married with a very small group of friends on Third Beach in Stanley Park on Valentine’s Day. Having no family attending, save the one I created with Jason, Lani felt like a big sister, and helped to keep me calm as we ran late waiting for the only woman I would wait for—my mother-in-law, Della. I would highly recommend Young Hip & Married if you’ve been looking to get married, not just throw a wedding.Anna M.
- Shawn Miller was fabulous as our marriage commissioner! He met with us in person before we made our decision and he was our first and obvious choice. Shawn worked with us to make our ceremony as personal and as special as possible and put us both at ease on our big day. We had so many compliments on the part he played with our ceremony and his interaction with our guests before, during and after. He and his wife run a very professional business and make sure all your needs are met and your questions are answered in a very timely fashion. My new husband and I would highly recommend Shawn and his colleagues for anyone getting married and who wants their day to be as memorable and special as it can beLisa Fennell

We wanted to thank Kristen for helping to create a truly memorable ceremony for us. We had an awesome day filled with love, laughter, and wonderful memories. Kristen set the tone for what turned out to be a day filled with many blessings. We hope that the success of her 30-year marriage will rub off on us.Mike & Joanne
We used YH&M for our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made for our ceremony. Randy was super friendly and personable and was willing to meet at times and places that were convenient for us. He worked to make our ceremony unique and incorporated our personalities and our story into it. Many of our guests made comments on how much they liked Randy. We would definitely recommend YH&M to anyone who wants to make sure their wedding ceremony is perfect!Braden & Elisha
We got married August 13, 2016 and chose Cory Dueck from Young Hip and Married to be our wedding officiant. We can say without hesitation that this is one of the best decisions we made.
The ceremony was the most important part of the day to us. Cory took the time to meet us and was genuinely excited to get to know us and hear about our love story. He created a personal, emotional and heartfelt ceremony for us. When we think about our day, the emotions during the ceremony stand out to us the most. We’ve had people tell us it was the most emotional ceremony they’ve ever been to. Cory was truly invested in making our day special and memorable.
(My bridesmaids and I would especially like to thank Cory for his foresight, suggesting that we stand on the opposite side during the wedding ceremony so we weren’t blinded by the sun).
Cory-from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. You have united us as man and wife and we are forever thankful for this. We hope to stay in touch.Josh and Jennifer Wilkinson
We chose the elopement package for our wedding; it was perfect and fun. Thank you so much Shawn and Erica!Katie Zaloga
We had the pleasure of being married by Shawn Miller. He created a unique ceremony for our family as we were blending ours and were including our five children in our ceremony! He took the time to get to know each of us personally and realized that we had a very unique situation and went out of his way to make our day extremely special, and for that we are forever grateful. 🙂 The special flower ceremony that he created for us to include made each of the children feel special and unique and helped unite us as a family. We loved our day …. it was perfect. xo
Jane carefully crafted a ceremony that reflected us and encouraged us to fine tune things so they were just what we wanted. She was able to keep us calm and got us through our vows even though we were a bit choked up! We received so many compliments from our guests on the what a outstanding job Jane did and how beautiful and touching they found the ceremony.Jenny
We just wanted to say thank you again! Kristen made our ceremony perfect.Brittany and Thomas
Our wedding was incredibly atypical, and had a lot of factors to it most hired pros don’t appreciate having to arrange: early rising, considerable amounts of travel, an overall lack of traditional applications and at least 20% more emus than your usual venue. Shawn and Erica Miller committed to all of our needs with zero hesitation. While others said we were expecting too much or getting too eclectic, Y, H and M reassured us that this was our day and we should be able to design it however we wish. They did something very crucial few do for young couples planning their wedding: they listened. The officiating script was thoughtful and romantic, our photographer was excellent at directing us and incorporating our personal touches, and together they were a delightful, dedicated team who truly brought out every detail we wished to see shine on our biggest day. If your wedding plans stray from the more orthodox ways (or even if they don’t!), we highly recommend Young, Hip and Married. Your special day will be as beautiful and creative as you imagined with them on your side.Tess & Paul
You did an amazing job. Everyone commented on how personal and wonderful it was. They thought you knew [Laine & Tyler] for a long time. Thank you for making the day so special.Donna, Mother-of-the-bride
An exceptional company! We had a last minute elopement and were cared for above and beyond for the week before and the day of. They were quick to respond to any inquiries and provided all of the information we needed leading up to the ceremony. On the day of, we met Shawn, though it felt like we already knew him. Shawn included everything we had asked of him, while still guiding us through the ceremony with ease and comfort. We could not have asked for a better ceremony, and highly recommend Young Hip & Married.Megan Haliburton
Our officiant Mark was a dream to work with. My husband and I come from two completely different backgrounds/cultures/faiths, and we wanted to craft our ceremony in such a way that it could encompass both of our traditions and values. Mark went through everything with us and made the process so easy. He was organized, helpful, and most of all very patient. The speech he crafted for us was so beautiful, and his personality was so warm and welcoming that our guests still can’t stop talking about our beautiful ceremony!Sherry and Jeffery
- Amanda and I couldn’t be happier with the way things went on our perfect wedding day. Jane, the officiant, was a pleasure to deal with, from start to nuptials. She guided us through every step and allowed us to focus on what really mattered. Young Hip and Married recommended an amazing photographer (Emily) and videographer (Cole) that captured our moments and enhanced our experience without making things feel stilted or posed. The whole experience was incredible and the major reason that we were able to let ourselves go and live in the moment was because of the guidance and hospitality of YH&M. Thank you!Amanda & Stephen
Jane Halton officiated our wedding this past weekend and we could not have asked for a better experience! Our guests had nothing but compliments after the ceremony and loved the unique personality and casual nature of the event. Having the chance to meet with her in advance of the ceremony helped us feel comfortable that she would create a customized ceremony that fit our personalities and style. She also took care of our rehearsal, ensuring our entire wedding party was up to speed on the process and gave us a chance to review everything before the day. We’d highly recommend Jane and Young, Hip & Married to anyone looking for an excellent, highly personal wedding experience.Nick Sartore
The biggest thank you goes out to Randy Hamm from Young Hip & Married for helping us prepare for marriage and for making our wedding ceremony a beautiful and personal one. You went above and beyond what we could have ever imagined from an officiant. You made us laugh, cry and entertained our guests. You make our special day such a memorable one!! I would recommend Randy to everyone!
Shawn was able to captivate the attention of 300+ people with ease. My entire wedding went perfectly and it wouldn’t have been possible without Shawn’s help to start things off that way. Thank you so much, Shawn! You are the only person I will recommend to my friends and family!Jon
We had met with other officiants before meeting Jane from YH &M. We found the previous ones to be quite sterile and serious, but Jane was a breath of fresh air.
We wanted to keep our afternoon restaurant wedding light hearted but very genuine. Jane never pushed anything on us that felt unnatural or corny. She was laid back but still professional which made her easy to talk to. She wrote an amazing ceremony that our guests really loved and was so personal to us.
We mentioned our favorite movies and she went and researched readings and quotes to include in the ceremony without us even asking for them, and our ceremony was so much better than we thought it could be! We allocated more of our budget to the officiant than to other details and it was definitely worth it! our ceremony was great and set the tone for the whole wedding.Kevin & Tara
Both my new husband and I would highly recommend the services at Young Hip & Married. We had a lot to do in a short amount of time, and their services were fast (like we were hoping for) however I was pleasantly surprised to find out how very much they cared about making our special day perfect for us. Our officiant Jodi was amazing, and didn’t mind my last minute bride calls and questions. The wedding was short and simple just as we had requested, however it was one of those moments in time that we’ll never forget, and for that I’d like to send out a huge thank you to Tara, Jodi, and the entire Young Hip & Married team for helping us make our special day come true.Nicole
All of our interactions with Young Hip & Married were very pleasant! Firstly, they were able to help us arrange our small marriage with just a few weeks notice, and secondly made everything we needed to do very clear in advance despite not actually meeting with our officiant (Shawn) until the day of our marriage due to the expedited arrangements we had made. We were provided with a sample of how the ceremony would go as well as opportunities to tailor things here and there to our wishes. Not being sure of what exactly was involved in terms of formalities and administrative things surrounding getting married, it was so very helpful to have all of the guidance that was provided. Shawn’s wife Erica was our photographer, and they both arrived precisely when they said they would! Right away they were very friendly and comforting to have with us. While our ceremony was small, it went exactly as we had hoped it would go. Despite having only spoken over the phone and by email, Shawn had prepared some words for the day that seemed to suit us perfectly. Erica’s photography was great! We love the photos that she took of us and our guests. She did a great job at mixing the scenery into the shots. Perfect for our forested garden location! All of our guests have complemented the ceremony itself and appreciated the friendliness they presented. Thank you both, and thanks also to Tara for helping to set things up for us!Sam
We cannot thank Shawn enough for his personal touch to our elopement ceremony. It genuinely felt like he was feeling all the emotions of our special moment right along with us, and we had never met before our ceremony outside of a few excited email exchanges. Our witnesses could not believe the care and emotion emitted from someone who had never met us. We really appreciate the beautiful words, it is a moment we will remember forever because he cares so much. Anyone who has the opportunity to have Shawn participate in any kind of celebration is truly lucky!Amanda Banks
Kristen, thank you so much for officiating our marriage ceremony! You were fantastic and we really appreciated your patience and support through the day! We could not have asked for a better officiantJordon & Cassandra
My husband and I put a lot of effort into finding the right officiant for our wedding. We knew we didn’t want a little old lady who does the same weddings every weekend for the last 20 years. .
I was so intrigued when I discovered Young, Hip & Married! We were put in contact with Cory and we hit it off from the first meeting. Cory was such an amazing officiant and made our wedding much much more than I had hoped for. We had high expectations but they were blown away. My husband and I each sent Cory our love story but from our own perspective and allowed Cory to surprise us at the wedding by melting our stories together. That allowed us to be surprised and deeply touched at the same time our guests were. I feel this made the ceremony more genuine and not too rehearsed. Cory is so kind and we have enjoyed getting to know him. He made our dreams come true and I can’t thank him enough for that. We have received so many compliments that our wedding was so personal and touching. I believe we owe that to Cory!
Don’t think twice, book Young, Hip & Married.Lesley
- Thank you so much for your lovely message and kind words during the ceremony. We absolutely loved our wedding and a huge part of that is how awesome and cool you are. We’ve greatly enjoyed getting to know you and can’t thank you enough for helping us create a beautiful memory that we can reflect back on often 🙂Hopefully we’ll be seeing you soon (a lot of our newly engaged friends have been asking about you)!!Mackenzie & Anthony
Bobbi was our officiant for our elopement and she showed up early, she was professional and flexible. She made our day very special and was so personable. The website for Young, Hip and Married was a useful resource and help us with our vows.Denise
Young Hip & Married offers you a choice of officiants and you are able to watch videos recorded by each of the officiants to get a feel for them. I loved this because I was really looking for something unique and different and we were SO pleased with our officiant Lani Brunn. I had so many people tell me how wonderful and personal they thought the ceremony was and what an amazing officiant we had. Lani is amazing and such a lovely and genuine person, she is a goddess!!!Bryce & Holly
My husband and I wanted a small, romantic wedding ceremony and we are so happy we chose Young, Hip and Married. Our wedding was officiated by Shawn Miller on May 7th and it was simply amazing! We had a chance to skype with him before the ceremony to share our story and let him know what we were looking for. It was so much more than what we excepted. Shawn was professional, enthusiastic, welcoming and authentic. The ceremony was meaningful and full of emotions. We feel extremely grateful that he created such a memorable moment for us with his spirit and his words. Thank you so much Shawn!!!Joanna
What an incredible ceremony! Bobbi truly made our ceremony unique, fun and fabulous. Would not have changed a thing!!Jennifer
There was so much excitement and high energy right before the ceremony and it was Shawn’s impromptu introduction that really brought us into the moment, setting the soulful intention and deep connected feeling for our ceremony.Seriously, we can’t say enough good things about Shawn, Erica, and the YH&M team. We are so happy that they were a part of our joy and we highly recommend them to anyone looking for a unique and personal wedding experience.Kate
- Wow what a whirlwind day! Thank you so much for your generosity in being our officiant. You were the perfect person to marry us and we are ever so thankful to have you play such a big part in our union! Thank you so much!!!!!!We really cannot thank you enough!Mark & Anita
I have never been so sincere in writing a review for any service I have used, as I am about to be regarding Young Hip & Married. We are so beyond thankful and appreciative of the amazing, amazing, amazing ceremony their officiant Mark Groleau put together for us! It was so perfect and so truly captured the essence of our relationship. Every single one of our guests said that he was the best officiant that they had ever experienced and it was the most intimate and sincere wedding they had ever been to. His patience with the kids, his sense of humour, his focus on our love and sincere words made all the difference. It is something we will never, ever forget!Kate
My husband and I had been engaged for a couple of years and life kept getting in the way, so finally we decided enough already and just eloped with Young Hip and Married. I can’t say enough about how easy they made the process, from booking to sorting out details to putting together a ceremony that felt genuinely representative of us. Jane Halton was a fantastic officiant who incorporated our reading beautifully, kept everything on track and organized and on time, but allowed for our personalized touches and an informal feel at the same time. She was great at keeping in touch leading up to the day of, making sure we had all our details in place. Thanks again YH&M for making our day special and making everything so stress-free! Would definitely, highly, recommend.Heather Scott
We could not have asked for more for our elopement. Even with very short notice, Lani was able to accommodate us and adjust for a date change 1 week out! Even though it was an elopement, Lani was able to provide a personal touch that made us feel extra special. At the end of the day having Lani as our Officiant felt like it was meant to be.
Thank you so much YH&M! Our wedding was in Toronto and we had Anthony as our officiant. He was so wonderful during the entire planning process and completely wowed us on our wedding day. His charm and wit made every feel very relaxed, especially my husband and I. Thank you Anthony and thank you YH&M!Christina Marsala
We had a small wedding ceremony in Calgary, and it was a great experience. Rich was our officiant and he was really helpful throughout the whole process. We had a phone conversation early on and he made sure I had all the information needed. The ceremony was quick and easy, and tailored to us. Young, Hip & Married was simple, affordable, and our officiant was easy-going, but still professional.Joanna LePrieur
Thank you so much for everything you have done for us – you truly were AMAZING and it not only was such a memorable experience for us but for all of our guests as well! Everyone have continuously been telling us that they have never been a part of such an amazing, beautiful and personal ceremony. It really was our favorite part of the day and we couldn’t be any happier than choosing you to be our officiant! We will forever recommend you as an officiant to family and friends getting married and will definitely follow your blog to hopefully join in on some of the events and workshops you have!Karly & Wade
We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding officiant than Jane. She is laid back enough to make it fun and non-stressful to work with her, but not so laid back that she is casual or trivial—she takes seriously the significance and honour of the ceremony. She took the time to get to know us as a couple, and this allowed her to be very personal in her homily, and to speak words of encouragement and challenge that will remain with us for a lifetime.B & D
At first we weren’t sure about the costs involved but as soon as we had a chance to talk to Cory we knew it was well worth it. Cory made all efforts to make himself available to us through Skype since we lived out of town. He helped us with planning all the details of the big day and took a lot of the stress off our shoulders. He managed to suit the ceremony to our personalities and we couldn’t have been happier!Oscar
It was truly the most incredible and best experience ever having YH&M help us create our elopement ceremony in Toronto! Truly a brilliant company, exceptional service, and special thanks to our rockstar officiant, Jonathan Manafo!!! The best on every level! THANK YOU!!!!Christopher Emerson
We had Randy as our officiant at Young Hip and Married, and he was absolutely amazing! We had quite a fusion wedding and ceremony, (western and Indian) and Randy was so amazing and helping us bring our cultures together in our ceremony. He has so many amazing ideas, and really helped us plan out our ceremony. Everyone at our wedding gave us compliments on our ceremony saying it was heartfelt and romantic, as well as light and fun, which is what we wanted! He is completely capable to create any ceremony you want! Randy was such a great person to work with, and I would recommend him, and Young Hip and Married to anyone getting married! Thank you again, Randy!Nathan & Andrea
My husband and I had Shawn Miller officiate our wedding this October and it was one of the best decisions we made by far! What a nice guy! From the beginning Shawn was friendly, personable, enthusiastic and caring. He made sure to create a ceremony that was authentic and unique to our personalities. He made me feel so comfortable that I wasn’t even nervous by the time I got to the altar! Our guests are still talking about how engaging and perfect our ceremony was and assume Shawn is a long time friend of ours. Highly recommend!Kayzia Mitchell
We had a great experience with Young Hip & Married and are so thankful we chose them for our small, intimate elopement ceremony. Communication was timely and efficient and everything felt effortless. Our officiant, Jane, was very professional and helpful along the way. Thank you for making this experience easy and enjoyable and for your wonderful energy!Briana Garelli
Nathan and I were so happy to have Debbie officiate our wedding. We wanted something more on the simple side and right to the point, as neither of us is overly religious. We wanted it to be about us and our love for each other emphasized on the fact that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. Debbie gave us exactly what we were looking for. Working with her beforehand as a couple for the premarital meetings was wonderful, it was super easy going and we were extremely comfortable discussing our relationship with her. Debbie’s advice going into our wedding was perfect. She has such a warm and loving presence, we couldn’t imagine our day without her. Thanks again for everything!Kassandra
- Brian did an absolutely amazing job before and after with sitting us down and talking and made the ceremony relaxing and very easy going!!!Lauren & Mathew Woodley
Cory was great! Wish I would have been more specific with the crowning portion of our ceremony but he did such a great job of articulating our journey to our guests and setting a fabulous tone for a magical evening!Josh & Melena
Bobbi did such an amazing job with our wedding ceremony. There is not enough words to describe how appreciative my husband and I are that Bobbi took the time and effort to get to know our story and personalize our vows. My husband and I were looking for an alternative to the traditional justice of the peace/church ceremony and Young Hip and Married was the prefect match for us! When I first viewed Bobbi’s profile I knew that she would be the prefect wedding commissioner for us! And I was 100% right. Even though we only had a few meetings with Bobbi, it is easy to tell that she is a beautiful person inside and out. We were super comfortable with her and able to open up and let her see the inner workings of our relationship. She was able to embody exactly who we were in our wedding ceremony. She brought fun and laughter, while capturing our hopeless romanticism. We want to thank her from the bottom of our heartSheila & Alex
My husband and I tied the knot on Saturday, May 23rd, 2015 and Shawn Miller was our wedding officiant. We both knew Shawn prior to getting engaged. Once we got engaged we knew immediately who we wanted to marry us. Shawn made our wedding all about us– plain and simple. He took the time and effort to really get to know us (aside from what he already knew), who we are as individuals, who we are as a couple, our values, our view on marriage, what kind of wedding we want – everything! He compiled all of this into a draft, which we got to read and edit. We tossed the draft around a few times over the months until it was just what we wanted. He assisted us with the writing of our vows, he tossed around new ideas (wine box ceremony – which we ended up having at our ceremony!), and he incorporated the story of my husband and I and how we met into our ceremony. Our guests kept coming up to us at the reception inquiring about Shawn and commenting on how incredible, beautiful, personal, and unique our ceremony was. They mentioned they had never been to a ceremony like ours before and that it was just outstanding. We highly recommend Shawn of Young, Hip, and Married as your wedding officiant!Brad & Anita
- Je joins ici quelques photos dans lesquelles tu figures aussi. Sens-toi libre de t’en servir aux fins de promotion si tu le veux. J’aurais aussi une faveur à te demander… serait-ce possible de me remettre une copie des paroles que tu as prononcées lors de notre cérémonie ainsi que le texte que tu as fait lire par nos témoins? J’aimerais bien les inclure dans mon album-souvenir. Merci encore, Terry, pour tes services. Nous en avons été ravis.Nicole
The staff at Young Hip & Married were a pleasure to deal with. They were very responsive and helpful in every way they could be. We coordinated with both Shawn Miller & Tara Volney.
Our officiant, Anthony, took the time to meet with us and have a casual conversation to learn who we were and walk us through what to expect with our upcoming ceremony.
Overall, I would recommend the entire team!!Jeffery
Shawn was our officiant for our wedding (March 2017). Not only was he a joy to work with, he really helped us make our ceremony unique. Since the wedding, I’ve had tons of people comment on how amazing and captivating he truly was. Would definitely recommend him!Kengie Law
Our wedding ceremony was the absolute highlight of the day for both of us and a lot of our guests. We had so many compliments about it, and about our officiant, Bobbi! My cousin thought Bobbi must have been an old friend of ours seeing as how natural the fit was and how well she represented us. It was so awesome! We also had a lot of people say how they usually want to fall asleep during the ceremony, but not in this case. Honestly we talk about how hiring Bobbi was one of the best things we decided on for our wedding.Emma & Dave
We could not have asked for anything more perfect! We worked with Jodi as our relationship coach, and then as our officiant for our beautiful, intimate ceremony at a lookout in Squamish (small hike required!). She was incredibly supportive throughout the process of working together as a couple through unexpected challenges, and replaning and rescheduling our wedding ceremony/celebrations. In the end we could not have asked for a more perfect way to formalize our union, with so very much to be grateful for, on Thanksgiving Monday with a ceremony officiated by Jodi completely bilingually (in Spanish and English), very much personalized to our story and our relationship, sharing such an important moment with our closest friends and family, surrounded by the beauty of the mountains and the ocean, decorated with brilliant sunshine and the colours of fall!Jennifer Baxter
I would just like to say how amazing Mark was on Friday at the wedding for S&T. He was absolutely hilarious in such a tasteful way. All the guests thoroughly enjoying his service. S&T had only great things to say about him.Christina, Lead Planner, Stealing Cinderella Planning & Events
Thank you so much. It was an amazing day and Kristen made us look so good and organized.
She made the ceremony so spectacular, touching and unique to us. Then was able to add in some humor at our request to keep it light.
We absolutely loved how easy Kristen made the process for us, in fact all of you did – so thank you again.Laurie + Jeff
We met up with Bobbi after viewing her video on the Young, Hip & Married website. As soon as we met her, we knew she was the one! She is extremely warm, funny, and was able to capture our personalities perfectly in the wedding vows! Many people came up to us after the ceremony and said she was amazing – so gifted and talented at what she does! We couldn’t agree more. Not only is she a beautiful person, but you can tell that she absolutely LOVES officiating. The BEST!!Andrew & Patricia
We were fortunate enough to have Cory Dueck from YH&M officiate our wedding. He went above and beyond to make sure we all felt comfortable and to make our ceremony personal, meaningful, and funny. Several of our guests asked how we knew Cory/how long we’ve known him – which speaks to how well he highlighted our unique personalities and relationship in the ceremony. With YH&M, you’ll forever have fond memories of that “I do” moment, they are worth every penny.Laura Hayes
This is long over due as we were married March 5th. What can I say, these guys are FANTASTIC. Let’s add a little back story. The Mrs and I have been trying to plan our wedding for the last few years, well, last week of February we finally decided to do it. Well within a week Young Hip & Married was able to step up to the plate. They provided us an officiant and a photographer, both were fantastic. We were married half way up the Sea-to-Sky gondola. Yes you heard correctly, half way up, we wanted something different.
Keep up the great work Young and Hip. You, literally, made our day amazing and unforgettable.Leonard
We had the best experience with Young Hip and Married. Our officiant, Lani, was a perfect fit for us! She met with us early on to get to know us and to understand our vision for the ceremony. She was incredibly enthusiastic and accommodating to our adjustments and plan. She went through everything at the rehearsal (expect our surprise vows to each other, of course!) and trouble-shooted all potential problems so that on the day of our ceremony everything was absolutely perfect. She made us both feel at ease and was just a pleasure to work with! I highly recommend her!!!Jon & Dianna
We just wanted to personally thank you, Cory, for doing such an amazing job with our ceremony. We loved how personal, light and fun it was. We had so many comments from our guests about how our ceremony was easily one of the best ones they have attended.
Everyone loved how personal it was, also, everyone loved the idea of having community vows – it truly did give the wedding a “camp feel”. We had many people mention that they loved feeling like they were apart of the ceremony, not just a witness to it. Everything about the ceremony was perfect. Thank you for all of your hard work. The dedication and enthusiasm you have for your job is something that helped set the tone for our ceremony, and we can’t thank you enough for that.Lyn & Braedon
Cory was fantastic – you know he leaves an impression when multiple people come up to say congrats, but then ask you where you found your officiant! Even my wedding planner said he was the best officiant she had ever worked with and will be recommending you to future clients. We love Cory and were so happy we had him as an integral part of our wedding day.
You guys far exceeded our expectations on how you could make our wedding day even more memorable. Thank you for everything!!!Jessica + Reuben
Young, Hip and Married exceeded our expectations in every area! Shawn and Erica are both so personable that even though we had never met face to face until moments before we were getting married, we felt as though we were spending time with old friends. Quality time! Shawn hit the mark so dead on in the words he spoke during our ceremony that one would wonder if he had been following us around for years in preparation. Erica took the photos for us and made our family feel completely at ease. We enjoyed the most laid back wedding day that suited our personalities completely, we wouldn’t change one thing and are so grateful for the experience! If we could tell the world how awesome this was we would, I have even been suggesting people marry strangers just to get in on it:) Thanks!Darcy Arnold
- My wife and I were completely blown away by Andy’s eloquence during our wedding ceremony this past March. The words which were carefully crafted for us by Andy will allow us and our guests to remember the most important day of our lives for years to come. He filled the service with laughter and lightheartedness, all while not allowing our guests or ourselves to forget why we were gathered together.His professionalism and excellent customer service will always be remembered, as some of the best we’ve ever encountered. Thank you so much again, Andy!Ben + Justine Bradley
We chose the elopement package for out wedding and it was perfect!
Short and efficient but very intimate and sencere. Shawn did an amazing job, making our day special.
Thank you❤️Martina & Andrew
We had the pleasure of having Shawn as our officiant for our ceremony. From the start, our experience with YH&M has been top notch. After our initial conversation over the phone, Shawn sent us a personalized greeting video to introduce himself and give us more information on the process. This gesture blew us away. After that, Shawn worked with us on the draft for our ceremony up until the week of the wedding. On the wedding day, Shawn showed up early and helped us quickly go through the steps for the ceremony (we did not have him at our rehearsal). The ceremony went amazing. Shawn helped guests (and the bridal party) ease into the ceremony with a fun ice breaker which really set the tone (another WOW factor). The ceremony went flawlessly: not too long, not too short, guests were engaged, people laughed, people cried. After the ceremony, we had countless guests tell us how great Shawn was. We would definitely recommend YH&M to any couple who are looking for an officiant for their ceremony. YH&M is a bit pricier than what you would normally expect to pay but they are well worth the money. The ceremony couldn’t have gone any better! Thanks YH&M and Shawn!!Thomas & Holly
WOW. Shawn made getting hitched SUCH an easy and wonderful experience. Reminding us to be present in the moment and taking a few seconds during the ceremony often for us to stop and absorb the emotions! It was such an awesome experience. Shawn was such a wonderful energy to have with us when it was such a small and intimate thing (only 4 people) and we are so glad he was one of them. Thank you to YH&M and Shawn.Miranda
Cory Dueck was amazing! We are so happy we chose him. Everybody liked him and our ceremony went exactly as I imagined.S Saniee
Jonathan! Thank you so very much for every contribution to our incredible day. It was a dream and everything we wanted. Truly was so perfect. The location, the timing, the ceremony, the whole morning, and day. Loved it.Christopher & Fatine
We were lucky enough to have Brian marry us for our BC summer wedding, Aug 2015. We were coming from Australia and wanted to have the right person for the job, but didn’t have the time or means of meeting officiates from across the waters. So when asking friends and family the recommendation of Brian couldn’t come high enough.
A few days prior to the wedding we met Brian, we were a bit nervous hoping he would fit our personality and be able to give a ceremony that was a reflection of us and nothing too stuffy, immediately we were relieved, knowing the fit was going to be perfect. We had a comfortable chat with Brian, during which he asked questions about ourselves, backgrounds and talked about himself and his family, he was able to make us laugh and feel at ease and then explained how the layout of a ceremony worked. It felt like he got to know us and by the end of the conversation, he shared with us three pieces of advice to bring forward into our marriage. Today we still reflect and apply the advice he shared with us towards our marriage, as well as pass on these gems to friends and family that are about to tie the knot.
On the wedding day, Brian arrived early, was ready for us and set the mood for the ceremony. He started with a bit of a joke about us that had as laughing (calming our nerves) and the guests laughing (connecting into the ceremony), which in turn brought us all in together. From that moment he drew us all into the words he was sharing and made the moment unforgettable and very special not just for bride and groom but for our guests too.
Overall we couldn’t have asked for a better officiate; a kind hearted, polite, professional individual, that is a true natural when it comes to celebrating and connecting loved ones.Courtney & Beau Jansens
When planning our wedding we knew early on that we wanted to put a focus on the ceremony, and really have the opportunity to set the tone for the rest of the evening. Finding an officiant that did not just read out one of five set ceremonies was a huge deal, thankfully we found Young Hip & Married. We were able to customize the ceremony to engage our guests, instead of generic thoughts of love and marriage, we were able to share and laugh about how we met, talk about how we fell in love and really connect. Our officiant Shawn was so easy to work with, he was fun and engaging with us getting us ready for the big day. As well despite the fact he was always jumping from wedding to wedding when he was there helping us with our rehearsal and patiently waiting for late guests to arrive before we walked down the aisle he was always present and invested. The actual ceremony was wonderful, it could not have gone any better, it felt genuine and truly helped show our guests who we were as a couple. I have been told many times in the 4 weeks since our wedding by guests that they had never actually enjoyed a wedding ceremony that much, it is defiantly my favourite memory from the day! I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!! Thank you Shawn and Young Hip & Married.Alex & Kyle
James and I had very specific requests and concerns regarding our wedding ceremony. Anthony more than addressed them all and worked with us to achieve exactly what we had envisioned—if not better! We specifically chose Anthony because we loved the way he spoke so clearly and personably when speaking to a congregation. We wanted a God-centered ceremony that reflected our hearts and our beliefs, but was not preachy or offensive. Of 180 people, nearly everyone commented or wrote letters afterward on how it was one of the most amazing and beautiful weddings they had ever been to.Sarah & James
- We wanted to thank you so much for making our day perfect. You were so helpful, easy to deal with and cool. Our families also commented on how great you were. We are so happy you married us on our special day. Working with you was such a pleasure.
Thanks again, we are so happy!
Riley and BillRiley & Bill
We were thrilled with the service from Young Hip and Married for our small, intimate wedding. We contacted them on quite short notice and they were extremely accommodating. They were thoughtful, caring, and easy to communicate with. On the day of our wedding, Shawn was organized, expert, and relaxed. We had an incredibly special and memorable ceremony, without going through great pains to explain ahead of time what we were looking for. Would HIGHLY recommend if you want a clear, professional planning process, and an intimate, meaningful day-of!
I was one of the many couples at Robson’s Square on Valentine’s. I just wanted to say again how thankful I am for what you guys did there. I am sure that all those involved are still exhausted and horse from that days events, but I sincerely hope that your views of that day were not changed! I must confess when I woke up that morning I had no idea I was going to get married, but even if I had known I couldn’t have pictured a more beautiful ceremony, or have found more perfect vows! Thank you so much Shawn Miller for marrying us! Though we had not met before, you spoke to us as old friends, easing our nerves, and even making us laugh. We were by know means the first couple you married that day, but you performed our ceremony as though we were. When you spoke the crowd around us melted away and there was only us three. It was absolute perfection! My only wish now is that I had a copy of those beautiful vows you helped us recite. In the moment I knew what I was saying was right with all my heart! Now that the moment has passed however, I can’t seem to remember them as eloquently as I should. I know it may seem silly seeing as you probably said the same words to every couple there that day but to me those words were meant for us and they are the words I would like to tell my grandchildren I said to their grandpa however many Valentine’s Days ago. My deepest and sincerest thanks to Shawn and everyone involved at Young Hip and Married. I really do hope you can continue this tradition though I do understand the event surely has taken off. In any case I will be sure to recommend Young Hip and Married to anyone getting married! You guys have started our lives together on the best note possible!Kimberley
Shawn from Young, Hip, and Married was the officiant for our wedding last October (2016). Communication leading up to the wedding was prompt, the script he produced was fantastic and wonderfully tailored to us, and he made sure that everything went incredibly smoothly. YHM are paragons of professionalism, right down to the wedding rehearsal (which I highly recommend you take advantage of). I have literally no complaints about them and, were I to do it all over again, I’d still go with YHM. They’re not cheap, but you absolutely get what you pay for.Geoff & Kat Fisher
Thank you, Jane!!! It was such a special day. Everything was perfect and we wouldn’t have done anything differently! The ceremony was our favorite part of the day and that was the part I was most nervous about, thank you for everything! Everyone was raving about how great you were.Tara & Kevin
When we decided to elope, our expectations (when it came to finding an officiant and photographer) did not include anything close to the level of expertise we experienced with Shawn and Erica. It’s impossible to describe, except to say that they put such beautiful human touches on so many moments. We are extremely grateful to have been joined by Shawn and Erica on this day!Grover & Helen
I cannot say enough good things about this business! They are wonderfully warm, fantastically flexible, quick with the responses, and the quality of the service is to die for! They truly helped make our day an unforgettable one by doing their best to make us happy, and they succeeded fully! They are a definite go-to for anyone getting married. They will not let you down, and they will bend over backwards to bring a smile to your face and help lighten the load on your shoulders.Corrina
When my husband and I started to think about what we wanted out of our wedding ceremony we thought about how we wanted our guests to feel like they were involved in the ceremony. We wanted them to feel like for a moment they were a part of our love story and learned a little more about why we came together to join our lives. Shawn at Young Hip and Married was the only choice for us. He spent so much time getting to know us, getting to know why we fell in love, why we were perfect for one another. He truly captured our essence in the ceremony. He created amazing sections that included our family and friends, getting them to pass around our wedding bands putting their love into them and then a amazing group vow with us. It was so special. We had so many guests coming up to us at our reception saying that the ceremony made them cry and laugh, and made them feel like we brought them into our love story, that was exactly what we wanted and Shawn gave us that. Everyone was telling us how he was so cool, funny and how he really captured us. We wanted our ceremony to be one of the most memorable parts of our wedding, and our guests mirrored that back to us. I will be recommending Shawn to everyone we know because he really married us, our way. Thanks so much Shawn!!Sarah
Bobbi S. was our officiant at our Ferguson Point outdoor wedding. Bobbi was very sweet and she did an awesome job in retelling our story. Our ceremony was overall slightly quirky, concise and to point, as requested. Lovely ceremony that suited our style as a couple! Price was rather high, but the level of personalisation and attention to detail is well worth it.April
Great service! Officiant Rich was very attentive, understanding and professional. Highly recommended!Windsor Lam
Bobbi Salkeld, our officiant, was amazing and very accommodating! I asked if we could skip the ring exchange and do our vows in French. She said it wasn’t a problem. We eloped and did an intimate knot-tying ceremony in Stanley Park. When we met her that same day, she has this serene energy that made everyone feel comfortable right away. The ceremony was simple but sweet. Honestly, we really couldn’t have asked for a better day! As our rather conservative friend and witness said, “I’ve been to a shitload of weddings and that one has got be one of the nicest ones I’ve been to!” So yes, you should book with them now!
Randy Hamm was absolutely perfect!!!!! I was completely skeptical in this process and also the amount of money it costs compared to a regular commissioner but I would choose Young Hip and Married (and Randy) over and over again!!!! Every single person and the wedding raved about how perfect he was! He was the right amount of funny with the right amount of religious and made the process so fun and so incredibly easy!!! We had people telling us that they wanted a divorce just so that Randy could remarry them all over again!!! We didn’t really want to write vows and Randy had the perfect suggestions and readings for us…it was so memorable and so perfect for us!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH RANDY YOU MADE OUR DAY PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!!!!Monika Romanowski
We had an amazing experience with YH&M who were the officiants for our ceremony. When we were at the very early stages of planning our wedding we had come across the YH&M team and immediately knew that we wanted them to be a part of our special day. We were so happy when the planners that found (Pop Up Weddings) used them as the officiants for the ceremonies that they organize. Shawn was so helpful from the very beginning and every step of the way even helping the groom with his boutonnière just before the ceremony! All of the correspondence we had with him was fun and made us even more excited! All of our guests raved to us about how great and perfect he was for our ceremony. We felt so at ease knowing we were in great hands. He was so supportive, professional, and welcoming. We will be recommending Shawn and his Young Hip and Married team to everyone! (Also, Shawn’s wife Erica is a fantastic photographer who we were so lucky to have capture the special moments of our day). Thank you for an unforgettable experience!The Carigrens
Shawn Miller was fabulous as our marriage commissioner! He met with us in person before we made our decision and he was our first and obvious choice. Shawn worked with us to make our ceremony as personal and as special as possible and put us both at ease on our big day. We had so many compliments on the part he played with our ceremony and his interaction with our guests before, during and after. He and his wife run a very professional business and make sure all your needs are met and your questions are answered in a very timely fashion. My new husband and I would highly recommend Shawn and his colleagues for anyone getting married and who wants their day to be as memorable and special as it can be!Lisa Dunn
Cory Dueck of Young, Hip, and Married was amazing to work with. My husband and I agree that one of the main vendors you must feel comfortable with is your officiant, because they are the ones who will share your story, your relationship – and that means you have to be able to be vulnerable with them. Cory made us feel incredibly comfortable to share our story with him and we trusted him from the start. He’s warm, funny, and engaged. He listened to what our vision was for our ceremony and he gave us great advice and suggestions on how we can make our vision a reality. On our wedding day, there was not a dry eye in the house. He relayed our story beautifully – with the perfect balance of funny, sweet and endearing. We cannot be happier with having Cory officiate our wedding and be a part of our forever memories. – Shima & JoséShima & José

We took part in the Valentine’s Day Weddings at Robson Square on February 14th, 2015. We had the pleasure of Shawn marrying us. He was extremely flexible and made us feel as if we were the only couple there that day getting married. After the wedding, he e-mailed us the vows he used so we could print them off and put them with a picture from that day. We would highly recommend Shawn to anyone looking for an officiant.Karmin
- Thanks for EVERYTHING Jason. So many people told us that this was one of the best ceremonies they had ever been to. We couldn’t be happier with it ourselves!Justine & Blake
Thank you to Anthony for being part of one of the most important days of our lives. He helped make our wedding day beautiful and memorable with his genuine, personable, and peaceful presence.Roberta & Jason
WOW – thank you so much for putting together such a beautiful ceremony. It was amazing, perfect, and we feel so fortunate to have had you as our officiant. Your guidance helped Kyle and I create the ceremony of our dreams.Alana & Kyle
Our wedding day was such a special, memorable day for us. I don’t think either of us has every been so happy! Thank you so much for making the ceremony what it was. It was perfectly us and exactly what we had hoped for. – Matt & MarinaMatt & Marina
- We live in the UK and decided that we wanted a small, intimate, fun and relaxed ceremony (with just our immediate family) that doubled as an amazing holiday for everyone.Our officiant Cory delivered at every single stage of our wedding as he helped us plan in the months prior and gave a wonderful ceremony on the day. He went above and beyond, making time for us on Skype and via email and meeting us when we arrived in Vancouver, to learn more about us and put us at ease. He crafted a wonderful ceremony which our family absolutely loved and engaged us all. Our day couldn’t have been any better, and that’s in no small part thanks to Cory.A huge thank you to both Cory and YH&M for making our wedding so enjoyable and stress free. Hand on heart, it was the perfect day and we couldn’t have hoped for better.If you want a unique, fun and stress free wedding experience where you and your guests enjoy every moment then these are the people to make it happen – couldn’t recommend highly enough!Matt & Hayley
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Shawn when planning our elopement this past summer and owe him a long overdue thank you! Shawn was incredibly personable and accommodating and we absolutely loved his laidback attitude and sense of adventure when telling him about our elopement plans, ‘Helicopter ride to a mountain top to profess your love, no big deal!’ He played a huge role in creating a fun and stress-free experience and we credit him for helping to make our day as memorable and enjoyable as it was. Thank you for everything!Amy
- Thank you so much for the lovely ceremony! We feel so fortunate to have had you there to walk us through it and you made it very special for us. It was exactly what we had hoped for, it felt very “us”. It was wonderful to meet you and a pleasure to have you join us in celebration! We will never forget it!Carla & Cam
Our officiant Terry was lovely! Our wedding ceremony was in French and English, so we had to have a bilingual officiant, and Terry was just perfect for the job. He took the time to get to know us and personalised our ceremony in a beautiful way. Great experience 🙂Anonymous
Bobbi was amazing. She really took the time to get to know us and write a ceremony that was truly us. She was easy to get in contact with and was prompt delivering the ceremony for us to review as we liked. On the day, she was easy-going, charming, and absolutely perfect for the day. I highly recommend Bobbi if you’re getting married, and the services of Young, Hip and Married are tailored to making getting married easySarah
- There is not a single aspect that I could have imagined being better, I wouldn’t change a thing. Jodi is absolutely delightful, everything I hoped for in an officiant. I knew from the second I saw your domain name that your company was the one for Graham and I. Thank you for being so accommodating of our adventure filled lifestyle; I seriously doubt that anyone could be so great helping us plan our wedding from Halifax. Four time zones away? Jodi didn’t even flinch.Thank you for creating such a fantastic community of people dedicated to keeping the magic of marriage young, hip, and beautiful! You guys blew my mind!With much love and light,Madeleine & Graham (Young, hip, and stoked to be married!)Madeleine & Graham
Every single person who attended our wedding took the time to personally tell us what a wonderful job our officiant did. Our guests (and us) were blown away with how eloquently and effortlessly Lani captured our personalities, our story and our love. From the first day we met Lani she was exceptionally professional, friendly and completely accommodating to any requests we had along the way. We are so grateful to Lani for helping give us a wedding ceremony that we will forever cherish!Jasmine & Sandy
Beth Carlson-Malena was a joy to work with as the officiant for our wedding ceremony. We wanted a small, simple wedding and she helped guide us through the process, giving us great suggestions, which resulted in a ceremony that was perfectly suited to us. She is personable and very easy to talk and relate to. Our wedding celebration was lovely and she helped make our day extra special with her warmth and professionalism. We would highly recommend her.A & P
Jonathan M. was an amazing officiant for our ceremony. We wanted short and sweet but personable and it was just that. He was a great fit. I would highly recommend him for officiating services for brides/grooms-to-be.Holly Miller
We couldn’t have been happier with Young hip and Married as our officiants! Shawn Miller made our day extra special, our ceremony was light, beautiful and filled with love. Our families were especially impressed with Shawn and how he made everyone feel like this day was as special to him as it was to us.
Thank you for EVERYTHING Shawn. We have already been recommending you to our friends for their future ceremonies. 🙂Angela + Martin
Throughout the process of arranging our elopement style wedding Lani was incredibly helpful, responsive and accommodating. We didn’t meet her in person until the wedding day, but it was like we had known her for a long time. She was incredibly approachable, friendly and easygoing—exactly what we needed. We had our wedding in a public place where we had to navigate some crowds, aim for good weather, and walk some trails to get to the ceremony location. I was really worried about having an officiant that would be difficult to work with in this type of setting. Lani was the exact opposite. She was excited with how we were doing our ceremony and was helping organize the crowds and setting. In the ceremony itself, she nailed it! I have, and will continue to, recommend Lani to any of my friends.Mark & Elle
Our wedding was truly an amazing and very romantic experience for us. Just as we had imagined and even more. We appreciated and enjoyed every minute of it and it will always be in our hearts!
We thank you so much for guiding and supporting us all the way from the beginning with our thoughts and ideas for the ceremony. You were very present and we felt very secure in you leading the ceremony.
We are glad that we met you before the ceremony and got to know you. We are also glad you mingled with Simon and our friends before the ceremony. That meant a lot to us
Thank you so much Kristen! We will always remember you being a part of our very beautiful, important and romantic day. We hope our paths will cross again some day ….Tina & Simon
- Thank you so much for everything! We truly appreciate you being apart of our special day. It definitely was a night to remember! We couldn’t have asked for anything to go better. You were amazing as both our officiant and MC so thank you! We will be sending our friends your way in the future!Jordanna & Brian
My husband and I would highly recommend Mrs. Gwen Smith as a wedding officiant. She is a warm, caring, professional woman with a wealth of knowledge in many areas involving marriage. She is very flexible and helps involve you in every single aspect of your ceremony, asking your input, and letting you add your tidbits in there as well. She is experienced and will guide you letting you create a ceremony that is your own and is exactly what you always imagined. The quality of service is first class,
The quality of service is first class, without a doubt. She responds to all your emails/calls/texts promptly. Gwen helped us make our special day even more special than we could have ever imagined! I couldn’t picture our ceremony being done any better than she had organized! Thank you Gwen, times a million! Our day was perfect, all thanks to you!Kelsy & Alan
We so appreciate being able to have our little elopement on such short notice even though it was pouring rain on the day, we braved the weather and so appreciate that our officiant (Kristen) and camera woman (Naomi) did as well for us!Brittany & Nick
We eloped, which means planning/stress was already minimal compared to your ‘typical’/average wedding but it was SO nice to have Young Hip & Married involved in planning our day. Our officiant, Jane, was amazing. Professional, friendly and personable. I liked the idea that YH&M has many officiants so if yours is suddenly ill or has an emergency and cant attend they’ve got a roster of others to swoop in and cover for you! We did photography through YH&M as well which was a breeze to have that organized through them as well! I’ve recommended YH&M to many friend who are interested in a small wedding, and I will continue to recommend them!Ally + Phillip
- To make this easier for us to write out I’ve listed the ways you were awesome.1) You were so accommodating when we were waiting for a few people who were running late that we really wanted to be there before we got started.2) You helped to calm me down when I was feeling very anxious before the ceremony started.3) You delivered an extremely personal and touching ceremony that had our family and friends laughing, crying, and completely immersed in the ceremony.4) You weren’t thrown off by the 100 (not actually 100) fire trucks that decided to crash our pre ceremony.5) You were very kind and friendly to our friends and family before, during, and after the ceremony.6) You were HILARIOUS. Excellent delivery of our strange friend’s jokes.7) You helped us ensure things were set up for an easy transition to signing the documents when we were too overwhelmed to pay attention to our surroundings.8) You accommodated, very willingly, our unusual wedding requests even though we didn’t follow “the template”.9) You were very organized during the ceremony planning and made the process very easy on our side, as well as fun.10) You were the BEST officiant we have ever come across and could not be happier that it was for our wedding 🙂Amber
- Everything was perfect and simple. The ceremony was exactly the way we wanted it. Eloping with Jane as our officiant was easy. Thank you!!Jen + Brenden
ABSOLUTE MUST! Jef was absolutely amazing!! My husband and I clicked with him right away! He had some great, creative ideas for us and made our ceremony script very personal and made our guests laugh (which is exactly what Tobi and I wanted). He was professional and the quality of service was outstanding! They were extremely accommodating as we had to reschedule our rehearsal dinner and Jef moved around his schedule to meet our needs. HIGHLY RECOMMEND them!! <3Rhiannon & Tobi
From the bottom of our hearts, we want to send you the biggest thank you in the world for making our ceremony so special, so loving and so thoughtful. Afterwards, people were asking if you were our friend, how long we’ve known you, where did we find you and on and on the compliments went. Thank you so much. You made it a blissful and perfect experience.
I have never been so sincere in writing a review for any service I have used, as I am about to be regarding Young Hip & Married. We are so beyond thankful and appreciative of the amazing, amazing, amazing ceremony their officiant Mark Groleau put together for us! It was SO perfect and so truly captured the essence of our relationship. We have heard nothing but positive feedback from our guests, and literally every single one of them said that he was the best officiant that they had ever experienced and it was the most intimate and sincere wedding they had ever been to.Kate
Jane was kind, lovely, and gave us a great outline for our vows which we felt very comfortable with. She was also available on short notice which we really appreciated!Anonymous
My fiancé and I were planning to elope and we were in search of an officiant and photographer in Vancouver. I stumbled across YH&M on the internet and they seemed the perfect fit. We wanted a simple, sweet ceremony sans religious overtones. We hoped to find someone that would reflect our sensibilities -creative/contemporary/cool. Shawn and his wife Erica were perfect!! Since we are from California & unfamiliar with Vancouver, they were extremely helpful in finding where we could procure our marriage license close to the hotel. They were also flexible about our location and allowed us to confirm within 24 hours of the scheduled ceremony. We wanted to visit the site we had chosen via pictures to be certain it was exactly what we wanted. They were on site prior to our scheduled time and ready to go as soon as we were. It was so nice to finally meet them in person after communicating with them via emails. We couldn’t have felt more comfortable! Our ceremony went off without a hitch- we managed to get a couple bicyclists to be witnesses 🙂 Erica stayed with us after the ceremony and we took loads of pictures. She couldn’t be nicer and really put us at ease. We got some great pictures out of the experience that we are free to use as desired. We both felt the value for the service was incredible. We were extremely happy with the entire experience with them, and would highly recommend their services to anyone!!Kathie & Scott
My husband and I got married on August 6th, 2016. We chose Mark Groleau to be our officiant from Young Hip & Married. We were extremely happy with this decision! Choosing an officiant is a very important step when planning a wedding. As my husband and I are not religious, we really wanted an officiant who was personal, understood us, and made our ceremony very special. Mark was very easy to get along with, professional and courteous. We met a few times before the wedding to get organized and for Mark to learn our story. He made the actual ceremony very touching and personal by actually writing about us vs. reading anything general that could be applied to anyone. We recommend Mark to anyone. We honestly couldn’t picture anyone else marrying us!Bianca
We had the pleasure and honour of having Cory Dueck marry us on our big day. He was and is an amazing kind hearted soul that had every single one of our guests laughing and crying all at once. We had so many people ask us after the ceremony, how long we had known Cory for (which is exactly what we wanted people to think when we hired him). He gave it 110% and truly put a personal touch on things. This made us feel like our ceremony was more “us” and far from long and boring. Cory said from the get go that he wanted to help encourage our guests to feel a part of our ceremony and to remind them that the party and the fun start with the them at the ceremony (and it worked). From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you Cory. He was amazingly supportive and helpful and we couldn’t have gotten to that moment standing before him without all his wonderful help along the way. We highly recommend Cory to ANYONE that wants a kickass memorable ceremony. We truly felt like he became a part of our family along the way and because of that we plan on keeping in touch with him He is THAT amazing.Jacquie & Mark
We were so happy with everything and all the services that Young Hip & Married provided that day. I shouldn’t use the word services, because, both the officiant and the photographer didn’t feel like people that we had hired, they felt like friends we had known for years and they were integral to our wedding day! I wish I could give them more than 5 stars, but this is all that Google provides.David
Young, Hip and Married made it so easy for us to plan our day. Chet was out officiant and he was the perfect piece of the puzzle to set our nerves at ease. We couldn’t be happier with the way things turned out on our special day. Thank you so much
Young Hip and Married provided my husband and I exactly the wedding ceremony we hoped for. We were looking for a unique and personal experience that wouldn’t compromise our personal or spiritual values. Shawn was attentive, creative, and confident helping us arrange just such a ceremony. He kindly helped us through the entire process, from writing our own vows to navigating the paperwork involved in getting hitched. On the big day Shawn really connected with our family and friends and held the perfect space for my husband and I to be wed. After the ceremony many of my guests (some cynical anti wedding types) approached me to say they had never been to such an authentic and personally meaningful wedding until this one. I came to Young Hip and Married with a lot of ideas about the wedding I didn’t want and Shawn was able to help me find my perfect wedding.Jennifer Himmel
We had Cory and he was such a delight. As a couple coming from two seperate countries we didn’t have a lot of time to organize our wedding and Cory was just brilliant! He helped us out with vows and the order of the ceremony, told us where to pick up our marriage license and all the nitty gritty (honestly my husband and i had absolutely no clue haha) He was amazing on the day, so friendly, he came to check on us both to make sure we felt prepared and never once did the smile fade from his face. He was perfect, really delivered a ceremony catered completely to us. Everyone commented after how wonderful he had been and i know when they take the plunge they’ll all be asking how to get in contact with Cory. Thanks Young, Hip & Married for a beautiful day!!!!Kylie
YH&M were so great to work with. I live over 1000km away from Vancouver but knew we wanted to elope in Vancouver, YH&M were very easy to communicate with via phone and email! It was also fairly last minute planning on my part but YH&M managed to make it all work perfectly! Jane was an amazing officiant, professional, friendly and personable. I would highly recommend them!Allison Shepperd
There’s something to be said about the fact that we had picked out the officiant we wanted before my husband and I had even gotten engaged – and we were 110% right! Realtalk: Shawn & Erika were amazing and phenomenal. They have an amazing energy, are attentive to details to ensure your day goes according to your vision, are prompt in their communication, are caring individuals, super chill, hilarious, flexible and professional. They took all the stress out of a day that could’ve been highly stressful and helped us enjoy the moment and the start of a new journey. Tara (aka Office Goddess) was prompt in communication and super helpful about guiding us through the logistics and process. It just doesn’t get any better than this super team! We highly recommend! In fact, down the road, my husband and I might just have to go through a divorce and then a re-marriage à la Elizabeth Taylor just so that we have an excuse to work with these two again… 🙂Tee
- When we were looking for someone to officiate our wedding, we didn’t exactly know what (and who) we were looking for. But when we met Jane for our initial consult, she was warm and reassuring. We were charmed!In the hours and days after the wedding, our family and friends told us how wonderful the ceremony was. Jane gave us everything we needed to personalize the wedding. She carefully considered our input, working around the readings we chose. And when the time came, she set the mood for our guests on the special day with some beautiful words and a narrative that touched everyone.We couldn’t have made a better decision for our most important day.Jason & Rebecca
We had Shawn Miller as our wedding officiant and it was the best decision we could of made for our wedding!! Shawn won us over with his refreshing positive outlook on marriage and after meeting with him, he had us even more excited for our wedding day (which we didn’t think was possible). From beginning to end, Shawn had us covered and left us feeling relaxed and eager for our day. He was extremely accommodating and created the perfect ceremony catered to us. Throughout the evening we had so many compliments about our ceremony.Weeks after the wedding, we are still receiving so many compliments on how much they enjoyed the ceremony and how amazing Shawn was. Thank you to Young Hip and Married for making our day even more perfect. Thank you Shawn for everything!!!Chelsea Brittany
Thank you! We had the best day ever! I just want to let you know that we were more than please with Jane as our officiant. She was so easy to talk to and plan with before the wedding and on the day was very friendly, professional and easy to work with. We were very very happy!Britney & Mathew
- We were thrilled with Debbie as the officiant at our daughter’s wedding. Her words were deeply thought out and exactly what the wedding couple was looking for. Plus, she is a joy to work with. We would highly recommend her to any couple looking for an officiant for their wedding.Sandy
We are so thankful we went with Young, Hip and Married for our wedding day. Jane was an awesome officiant and made the day very special and Emily the photographer went above and beyond.
Thanks again to everyone at Young Hip and Married for making our day unforgettable.
Thank you soooo much for officiating our wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony and we loved your fun and memorable touches. You truly capture who Paul an I truly are which made the event even more personal/intimate.Ada & Paul
Bobbi was absolutely incredible, making a real effort (and succeeding) in connecting with us. She made our special day the best it could be.Graham
Thank you YH&M for sending us Jane.
She was a perfect match for the vibe of our wedding. We had no idea what we were doing and Jane made the process seamless and easy. Our guests are still talking about how special and personal the ceremony was and they thought Jane was a perfect match for the day. We will highly recommend Jane and YH&M to anyone and everyone.Karen & Paul
Shawn was incredible. He fully customized our ceremony and presented it amazingly! He helped use each with our vows and was very helpful in calming my nerves about public speaking. I’ve had many guests tell me that it was the best wedding ceremony they have ever been through and what I enjoy mostly from that is that it was 100% personalized to my husband and I. We had the guests laughing and crying the whole ceremony!! Honestly, if you don’t go with Shawn … you are crazy!
We chose YH&M after meeting with two other officiants. Cory was our officiant and he was awesome! He took the time to hear what we loved about each other and made sure we didn’t get a boring, run of the mill ceremony. My husband was very nervous about speaking in front of 80 people and Cory made him feel at ease. He helped us to create vows that were “us” and kept our guests laughing and tuned in to the ceremony. We are so happy with our choice and highly recommend YH&M! They made our ceremony something we can look back on with fond memories.Karesse
We got married August 13, 2016 and chose Cory Dueck from Young Hip and Married to be our wedding officiant. We can say without hesitation that this is one of the best decisions we made. The ceremony was the most important part of the day to us. Cory took the time to meet us and was genuinely excited to get to know us and hear about our love story. He created a personal, emotional and heartfelt ceremony for us. When we think about our day, the emotions during the ceremony stand out to us the most. We’ve had people tell us it was the most emotional ceremony they’ve ever been to. Cory was truly invested in making our day special and memorable. (My bridesmaids and I would especially like to thank Cory for his foresight, suggesting that we stand on the opposite side during the wedding ceremony so we weren’t blinded by the sun). Cory-from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. You have united us as man and wife and we are forever thankful for this. We hope to stay in touch. Josh and Jennifer WilkinsonJosh & Jennifer
Young Hip & Married is so awesome. Rich was adorable, kind, accepting, flexible, accommodating, charming. We were trying to plan a wedding from another province and communicated with him mostly through email and Skype. We gave him a jumbled up, poorly articulated description of what we thought we wanted, and he somehow transformed that into a ceremony that was so us. Our families come from very different faiths and cultural backgrounds, and Rich somehow found a way to make a seamless ceremony that left everyone satisfied and impressed.Kerrie & Raza
We couldn’t be happier to have chosen Young Hip & Married for our wedding. Jef Young was our officiant and the ceremony was absolutely beautiful. We told Jef we wanted a traditional ceremony with elements of fun/meaningful, elegant/playful and sacred/frisky. We had all of these plus more. Jef also read some of the lovely bible verses we sent him. My family was really touched and we all ended up shedding some tears as the memorable words were read. We had the elopement package since our wedding only had me and my groom along with six family members. Our wedding, especially the ceremony was everything we wanted and was absolutely perfect.Sam
Mark from Young Hip & Married was perfect for our wedding ceremony. Mark performed a non-denominational service, and took time to get to know us and explain the ceremony to us (made sure we were comfortable).
Mark received great compliments from our guests (best ceremony ever was not an exaggeration). Other vendors and guests asked for his contact information. In fact, one guest hired him for an upcoming wedding in 2017!Sean
We are about to leave for our destination wedding, but had our legal ceremony prior to our trip. It was easy to book and plan our ceremony. It was so much more than just a legal ceremony—the vows were a perfect fit for us, and the hand ceremony was truly heartfelt and very meaningful! Our officiant, Mark was very personable and professional—he made our day perfect!Dana
Shawn was amazing. He was friendly and helpful. Our ceremony was simple and quick and exactly what we wanted. If you are not sure with what service you want then they are very helpful.Corinne Lee
Thanks again for making our day so special, everything turned out even better than we could have imagined 🙂 I will definitely recommend Jason and Young Hip & Married. They were absolutely awesome to deal with.Les & Joel
Loved that we got to customize our ceremony to fit what we wanted (even though we didn’t really know what we wanted, we got help with that too). All of our guests commented on how much they loved our ceremony and officiant and that they thought it was one of the most personal, touching and fitted to the couple that they had been to. We loved it!Andrea
We were very happy with the job Lani did at our ceremony and we highly recommend her. We wanted a mix of traditional and non-traditional, but we didn’t really know what else we wanted and Lani had lots of suggestions and helped us make it happen. Because we live out of town, we didn’t meet Lani in person until our rehearsal but right away it was obvious she knew what she was doing. She was the right mix of fun and professional. And after talking with our family and friends, all our guest seemed to agree.Caley + Brien
We used Young Hip and Married for our wedding ceremony and had the extraordinary pleasure of working with Shawn. The highest compliment I can pay Shawn is that after the ceremony, we had many friends come up to us and ask how long we had known him. We met with him once and worked online with him for the ceremony. What Shawn produced was an amazing and personal ceremony that me and my wife will never forget. Throughout the ceremony, there were tears and laughter. What Shawn had written for us was intimate, profound and perfectly us. It was my favourite part of the day and we have Shawn to thank for that. I would not hesitate to recommend Shawn and Young Hip and Married to anyone that will listen. They are extremely professional and will work with you to have a ceremony that people won’t forget.
On their experience with Jane: Wonderful service. From the first time we contacted them, they were friendly and helpful, and quick with their responses. I was worried that I’d given too short notice for our wedding date, but they were very accommodating, even though I wasn’t sure about the exact time when I contacted them (even asked them for advice!). Booking with them was easy, and stress-free. Would definitely recommend!Abby
Since day one Jane was extremely easy to get along with and talk to. Jane always replied right away via email or text message. After the first meeting we knew she would be part of the reason our day would be so special. Jane presents herself in a professional, yet fun manner. We would highly recommend Jane and Young Hip & Married to any of our friends and family.
Thanks again for everything! Your personal touches were incredible and we received comments from so many of our guests about it. We would highly recommend you to our friends and family.Sarah and Chris
Mark Groleau was our officiant for our wedding at Steamwistle in Toronto in September, and simply put he was incredible.
Our meetings with him were direct, comfortable, and honest. We had a non-religious ceremony and after our initial discussions he was able to identify the exact correct tone for us.
We were so happy with the way it turned out: it felt honest, personal, as if we had been friends with him for years. We couldn’t have imagined it being better, and that’s a huge testament to him and the work he did.
Now this was our wedding day so we were obviously biased as to its overall success, but we weren’t the only ones who felt that way: in almost every single recounting of the wedding by friends and family Mark was mentioned as standing out, something that made the day as great as it was and above and beyond a ‘normal’ wedding.
We highly recommend Mark. He is awesome!!!Steve & Ashley
Cory Dueck was amazing! We could not have asked for a more personable guy who took the time to get to know us. Everyone who attended the ceremony said that Cory was the best officiant they had ever witnessed! Thank you so much!Paul & Sam
Shawn Miller was fabulous as our marriage commissioner! He met with us in person before we made our decision and he was our first and obvious choice. Shawn worked with us to make our ceremony as personal and as special as possible and put us both at ease on our big day. We had so many compliments on the part he played with our ceremony and his interaction with our guests before, during and after. He and his wife run a very professional business and make sure all your needs are met and your questions are answered in a very timely fashion. My new husband and I would highly recommend Shawn and his colleagues for a very memorable day!Ivan & Lisa
Just attended the wedding of my daughter and her fiancé this past Saturday. Shawn was the officiant and I can’t say enough about how amazing the whole ceremony was!! It was personal, and beautiful, and unique. There were light touches of humour and so much pure emotion felt by everyone!! Shawn obviously put a lot of thought into helping them plan their perfect ceremony and it was exactly that!! The best part of the day and a ceremony that won’t be forgotten!! Thank you so much!Linda - Mother of the Bride
One of the best choices we made for our wedding was booking with YH&M. We were fortunate enough to work with Shawn and Erica and they were absolutely phenomenal!!! We had a small intimate wedding and Shawn created an incredible ceremony for us and it fit us perfectly. Erica did an amazing job with the pictures and they all turned out great. All of our guests spoke so highly of the ceremony and the pictures! We highly recommend Shawn and Erica
to anyone considering Young Hip & Married for their wedding!Cherrilyn Jimenez
We had Lani perform our ceremony at Estate 248 (with Pop Up Weddings) back on Sept 24th and she was AMAZING!! ! It was honestly one of the best parts of the day. We had so many people comment on how it was the best ceremonies they had ever been part of and it was as if she had known us for years! It was so thoughtful and mindful and fit us so perfectly! Everyone felt connected which was so important to us. Her funny, friendly and upbeat personality made everyone so relaxed and comfortable. My dad kept going on about how great she was haha. It was a perfect mix of fun and formal. She created such a relaxed environment that she made doing our vows (which we were both nervous about) easy! We couldn’t possibly thank her enough!Sam
Young, Hip and Married was a great company to work with – from the initial inquiry to the final follow up, they really care about making the process easy and fun! I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone getting married!!
Cory Dueck was the best officiant we could have asked for!!
We received so many compliments on our style of ceremony and specifically our choice of officiant – one of my girlfriends has already sworn she will hire him when she gets married!
Cory took the time to get to know us and really made our ceremony reflect who we are as a couple. It was an absolute pleasure working with him! My wedding planner even said he was the best officiant she had ever worked with, and that she would be recommending him to future brides! Cory, you ROCK!!!Jessica Wrinskelle
How do I even begin? From the start of contacting YH&M they were All Stars. Absolutely amazing customer service. We wanted a sweet & simple (not boring) elopement and that’s when they hooked us up with our officiant Jane. We stayed in contact via email and every step along the way was easy. On our wedding day, Jane & her adorable personality showed up on time and exactly where we needed her to be. It was the perfect little ceremony we hoped for, a quick photo op & Jane was on her way doing all the dirty work for us. We even received follow up emails from both Jane and the owner of the company. Love love love Young Hip & Married. If you’re considering hiring them, stop considering & book them already!! Thank you!!Celina Seib
Thanks, Kristen! We are really thankful to you for playing such a pivotal role in the whole affair and for dealing with our last minute planning with great forbearance! You’ll be forever part of our memory of this experience. Thanks again.Samuel & Christine
We were married by Randy Hamm from Young Hip and Married. Randy did an excellent job! He took the time to get to know me and my husband and what we wanted for our wedding, and he crafted a perfect ceremony that was highly personal and emotional. We also found the coaching services offered to be useful and gave us an opportunity to look at all aspects of our relationship before the big day. I would absolutely recommend this business to anyone looking to get married!Robyn
Absolutely wonderful service. Cory married us an I couldn’t have asked for a better guy. He was funny and laid back just like we wanted. I would recommend Young,Hip and Married to everyone I know. Thank you again fr a great weddingKris
We can’t thank Mark Groleau from Young, Hip and Married enough. We met him and within 2 minutes I knew we had found our wedding officiant. He was SO easy and fun to work with, we knew our wedding ceremony was going to be so unique, fun and meaningful, that’s what we wanted and that’s exactly what we got. Our ceremony truly described our relationship and it was so special, it was definitely one of our favourite things about our wedding day. After our ceremony, so many of our guests told us that they had never seen a ceremony like ours, everyone absolutely LOVED it and thought it was the greatest ceremony they had ever seen at a wedding. We will never, ever forget our ceremony and the amazing story that Mark put together for us, we are truly so grateful for everything that he did and we can’t wait to recommend him to all future couples tying the knot! 🙂Dan & Katie
Amazing experience from start to finish. Lani was our officiant and did an outstanding job! I cannot stress how amazing she is – incredibly professional and the ceremony was beyond what we could’ve hoped or imagined! Each and every one of our guests commented on what an amazing ceremony it was; how it was both serious and very personal and fun. A lot of them said it was the best ceremony they have ever attended.Devon Vanmook
Shawn was absolutely fantastic! We had requested a simple legalization/elopement, and everything turned out exactly as we had imagined it. He showed up at our chosen vacation excited for us and ready to go. He was friendly and engaging with us and our two friends who were there to witness. The whole experience turned out to be a very happy and memorable one! I will definitely be recommending these guys to anyone I know getting married in the future.Brittany Manson
Young Hip and Married was great to work with! Lani was our marriage officiate and even though we did not meet in person prior to the wedding day, she made our ceremony very personal and special. Lani was very authentic when she spoke about commitment and our union. I would totally recommend Young Hip and Married to anyone who wants a unique and awesome experience on their special day! Thank you!Todd & Angela
One of the best choices we made for our wedding was booking Shawn! He was absolutely phenomenal!!! He created an incredible ceremony for us – it was unique and fit us perfectly. Not only were we blown away by him but all of our guests spoke so highly of the ceremony! We highly recommend Shawn to anyone considering Young Hip & Married for their wedding!Kaetlyn Ratzlaff
Shawn was absolutely amazing! It was raining on our special day..but Shawn made it seem like there wasnt a drop in the sky. His words soothed the crowd..and everyone was in the present moment sharing laughs and tears together. Shawn kept it light, romantic, and fun…just what we asked for. Our day was perfect. Thanks so much Shawn; we appreciate it more than you know.Tanya
Young Hip and Married is an amazing service. Their ceremonies are completely 100% customizable, Shawn is an amazing officiant. He pinned me and my husband within 10 min, and we couldn’t have been happier with the service. We were even his first beer blending couple! How exciting! (It was a blast). Thank you so much for helping to make our day perfect!Emily & Luke
Randy was amazing. Very professional, funny, and made for a heartfelt yet un-cheesy ceremony. YH&M was very easy to work with, prompt with our last minute booking, and very fairly priced. I recommend their services to any.Krista Brittner
The moment I met Shawn I knew I wanted him to officiant my wedding. I was looking at venues and he was handing out business cards. After only speaking to him for 30 seconds, I loved his charisma. My now husband and I met with him shortly afterwards, and my husband liked him too. We decided to go with Young, Hip & Married because we wanted something special, and we wanted our wedding to leave a positive impression in our guests’ memories. We’ve witnessed more than enough wedding ceremonies that were impersonal and boring because the officiant didn’t take the time to get to know the couple like Shawn and his team do. I really liked being able to review, edit, and customize our ceremony as many times as we wanted to before the big day. We even made some last-minute changes only days before, and this wasn’t a problem. Shawn had many great ideas, and some ideas that we didn’t like as much, but he customized our ceremony until we were 100% happy with it. We wrote a few of the details ourselves, including our own vows, and Shawn incorporated everything. He even printed out copies of our vows and brought them to the ceremony for us so we didn’t have to worry about that with everything else going on. After the ceremony, some guests asked how Shawn knows us. Young, Hip & Married does such a great job, your guests will assume the officiant is a long-time friend of yours! I also love that he attended and directed our rehearsal. It took some of the stress away from the big day having someone else tell everyone where they needed to be and what the needed to do that day. I highly recommend Young, Hip & Married to officiant anyone’s wedding! You won’t be disappointed!David & Tamara
My husband and I had a beautiful wedding day. Our officiant, Terry, was absolutely perfect, everyone loved him. The words he chose for us were very special. I would recommend young, hip, and married to anyone looking to have a small wedding. Thanks!J Pore
So glad we made the very important decision to go with Young Hip and Married to officiant our ceremony. From the beginning I was impressed with how professional and kind Tara was. We had found out through our planning process that I was newly pregnant and Tara was nothing but patient and kind! Tara recommended Jane for Nick and I and I’m SO glad she did. We met Jane at a cute coffee shop and immediately felt comfortable and excited! Following after our first meet Jane sent us the draft on how our ceremony would commence. I was blown away at the beautiful words that Jane had written crying (happy tears) the whole way through! She was able to capture the mood and overall essence of our relationship, amazing!!The ceremony itself was more than we could have imagined, Nick and I both agreed Jane made it so easy for us. She spoke so eloquently and with true genuine love for our love. We wanted to tell our family at our wedding the sex of our baby and Jane came up with a sweet little entrance to announce our baby girl! All of our guests said she was incredible! Since it was such a small and intimate wedding I’m so thrilled we went with Young Hip and Married to find Jane it helped create the romantic, intimate and moody feel we were looking for. Worth every penny!! Thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts Jane will forever be someone special to us!!Jessica & Nick
Mr. & Mrs. want to say thanks to the Young Hip & Married team! A big hug to our amazing officiant Kristen as well!Yeran Cheng
We had a very small, intimate wedding. Having Shawn, as our officiant, and Erica, as our photographer, felt like we had two more close friends at our ceremony. Both instantly put us at ease and never made us feel rushed or anxious. Shawn’s words were so touching and heart felt, it seemed like he had known us for ages. Erica knew what our wishes were and stuck to them without making anyone else feel uncomfortable. We spent the first couple of hours as husband and wife, walking along the sea wall with Erica, and I can’t imagine it any other way. Our wedding was perfect and even more special than I ever could have imagined. Thank you so much Shawn and Erica! You are amazing!Melody Jean
Beth was the most amazing officiant we could have asked for. She created a beautiful and personal ceremony for us that suited my husband and me perfectly. Before our wedding day, she met with us to get to know my husband and me and what we were hoping to have included in the ceremony. She even contacted our friends to get personalized information for the ceremony. It was the most effort I’ve ever seen an officiant put into a wedding, and we are so grateful for her guidance through the whole wedding planning process. My husband and I have had so many friends and family who attended the wedding tell us that it was the most heartfelt ceremony they had been to. This was largely due to Beth’s warm and friendly presence, and the fact that she created a ceremony that was unique to us. Any couple who have Beth as an officiant are so fortunate as she truly is a special person to have marry you.M & B
Kristen was amazing! We are so grateful to have had her as our officiant. From the beginning with Tara, to our first meeting with Kristen, YH&M was prompt, professional and they really love what they do! Thank you so much for an amazing ceremony and thank you Kristen for all the work and time that you had put into the script and getting to really know us!Natasha R
Thank you so much for the beautiful day Kristen. Brendan and I both could not have been happier with the way everything went. My mom literally won’t stop talking about how nice you were and how you were like a part of the family… Can not thank you enough!Brendan & Nadine
Young Hip & Married brought so much ease to my big day! From start to finish they were professional, helpful and responsive. Shawn was an absolute pleasure to have officiate our wedding! He managed to swiftly juggle our ceremony with two toddlers pulling at each other, fighting for the attention. Worth every penny! Thanks again Young Hip and Married !! You guys rock!!Tarik & Kendra
When Brian and I got engaged, one of the first things we did was hire an officiant from YH&M. We watched all the video bios and chose Jane as our officiant for the big day!
We wanted out ceremony to be light and fun, while also being sincere and heartfelt. Basically, we wanted it all! And boy, did Jane deliver! There were giggles & tears, with a side of nerdiness. It was perfect.
Everyone that attended our ceremony was able to tell how much work Jane had put into actually getting to KNOW us. We’re proud and happy to say that our ceremony was not generic. It was unique, just like us! Star Wars references and all!
We would recommend Young Hip and Married in a heartbeat! Words are not enough to express the magic that these people create! 🙂Mellie + Brian
While searching for an officiant I came across Young, Hip and Married, I loved the way their website explained what they do and how you can pick who you think you want to work with so within minutes of entering my info in online I had a voicemail waiting from them. We wanted something fun and enjoyable so it asked for a suggestion and next thing you know we had a meeting with Bobbi! She sat down with us got to know our story, asking us questions taking the time to get to know who we were. Once we decided on Bobbi and we got the ceremony outline I couldn’t get over how personal it was. It captured us perfectly she was so fun to work with! We have had so many compliments on Bobbi and the ceremony! Would always recommend this vendor!
We were SO pleased with YHM! Shawn was our officiant and was great to work with. He collaborated with us to customize our ceremony. He also did a fantastic job facilitating and taking charge of our rehearsal. On our wedding day day, Shawn was fantastic. His kind energy put everyone at ease and he was very charismatic and engaging. Our guests were blown away by our ceremony and I would recommend Shawn to any couple needing an officiant!Nicky
Jane was our officiant from Young Hip & Married, she was incredibly patient with us and very receptive to all of our input and always responded swiftly to any questions or concerns we had. She took a very hands on approach with the ceremony’s proceedings and there was plenty of dialogue back and forth on what was to be included in the ceremony We were going for a very “feelsy” ceremony and Jane achieved that for us very well. She made the ceremony all that we hoped it would be. We would absolutely recommend Jane and Young Hip & Married to anyone looking for an officiant for their big day.Robert & Megan

We had such an amazing experience with Young Hip and Married. We had Shawn as our Officiant, and Erica as our photographer, they both made our elopement so comfortable and easy. We were able to enjoy every moment of our special day and we can’t thank them enough. We highly reccomend Young Hip and married; our day was perfect! Thank you Shawn and Erica!Pam & Rich
Our wedding was amazing, made only more amazing by Cory Dueck! He was so helpful in the days leading up to the big day, which calmed both of our nerves greatly. Cory delivered perfectly during the ceremony! He really encompassed both of our personalities and our sense of humour. I would recommend anyone to use YH&M. 10/10Hartman
Our day was amazing and we couldn’t have been happier with our decision to have Shawn Miller from YH&M as our wedding Officiant. While home in Australia we found YH&M on the internet and put our trust in YH&M and especially Shawn for our special day while on holiday in Vancouver. The whole process was faultless and Shawn was so professional and fun right from our first meeting. He provided a wonderful suggestion for where to have our elopement ceremony and his delivery throughout the service was perfect! We could not be more grateful of Shawn for providing an enjoyable atmosphere and a day we will not forget, Thank you ShawnAnonymous
I cannot say enough good things about YH&M. Cory officiated our marriage licence ceremony and he was absolutely WONDERFUL. He took all of the personal aspects of our story and incorporated it into the ceremony in a way that we would never have been able to do. We felt like we were hearing our own story for the first time! Our guests also commented on how beautifully personal it was. Some even teared up. So I can’t thank YH&M enough for what they did; they made our night that much more special. And big shout out to Cory for rocking a Hawaiian shirt! It was totally appropriate given we were signing the papers in a Tiki bar.
Love you guys!Meghan & Doug
Cory was absolutely amazing and really made a connection with our story. He understood us and our religious values while making the ceremony light and fun. He handled everything with professionalism and ensured that Jordan and I knew what to do on the day of our wedding. Wonderful job and I would definitely recommend Young Hip & Married to those who are looking for something professional and fresh.Ashleigh
Discovering Young Hip and Married was the best thing that could have happened for my husband and I. Upon reading what they were all about we knew we had found our officiant- we hired Shawn Miller, and he made our ceremony so much more than we could have dreamed.
Shawn’s energetic and enthusiastic vibes really set the tone for our wedding, and he embraced our style and desire for a simple and fun ceremony. He tailored it to us and delighted us with the work he did. His communication leading up to the big day was fantastic, and we never felt like anything was ever left on the table. He made sure we felt confident with him.
Shawn Miller made our day better than I had imagined it- and I’m a girl who has been dreaming about her wedding day for YEARS. Thank you so much Shawn for creating such a special ceremony for us, we are truly grateful!
Also to note, we hired Erica Miller as our photographer. She was wicked! She fit right in with us and our bridal party. We were able to laugh and joke all day and I never felt like she missed a moment with her camera. We had positive feedback from all of our guests about both her and Shawn. We couldn’t speak more highly of either of them!Rebecca Jamieson
Cory Dueck, out of Young Hip and Married BC was absolutely amazing! He was so friendly and helpful through our entire process. Every one of our guests mentioned how good he was during the ceremony.David & Jeelena
We couldn’t have been happier with our decision to pick Shawn Miller from YH&M as our wedding officiant! If we had a penny for every time a wedding guest came up to us at the reception and said that that was the best wedding ceremony they’d ever been to, we’d be rich! Shawn was so professional and fun right from our first meeting. He crafted a beautiful, personal ceremony that was the perfect mix of sweet, funny and sentimental. He even helped us write our own vows! Shawn brought such lovely energy and enthusiasm to the whole ceremony (and even the rehearsal), our guests (and of course ourselves!) were delighted and excited. We cannot recommend him enough!Margaret & Nathan
Bobbi was so much fun to work with! Warm and outgoing, she helped us work through some of the “awkward stuff” during our first meeting, and once we were comfortable it was a breeze finalizing the details. She personalized our wedding ceremony and gave us tips for our vows, checking in during the weeks leading up to make sure everything was perfect. We got feedback from our guests that her speaking style really suited the feel we were going for: the ceremony was full of laughs and was a great start to the celebrations. Dealing with Young, Hip & Married in general (mostly Tara, who handled some admin work!) was also a pleasure
Working with Young, Hip & Married was easy and they provided us a lot of great resources to help with getting organized for the ceremony.
Anthony was our Officiant and he was awesome! He showed up well in advance and considering we had never met before or even walk the ceremony space together he was exactly what we had hoped for. His calm cool demeanor, professionalism and overall enthusiasm for our special moment was fitting for our camp wedding weekend! He was able to read our style and he fit right in with our group creating an even more unique and memorable experience!Luke & Julie
We couldn’t be happier with our experience with Young, Hip & Married. Shawn is extremely thorough and professional. He is easy to communicate with and perfectly captured the tone we wanted to set for our ceremony. Highly, highly recommended!Jillian Oliver
