In the summer of 2018, my wife, Michelle, and I were married by Young Hip & Married officiant, Shawn Miller. It was that experience that sparked my love for officiating and led me to join the team at Young Hip & Married. I love hearing the stories folks tell about how different moments or events shaped who they are. I would love to hear about your moments and partner together to authentically tell the story of your relationship during your wedding ceremony.
When I’m not officiating weddings, I work as a pastor at Woodcliff United Church in Calgary. And when I’m not working you can find me reading fantasy novels, cycling on my Peloton bike or trying different craft beers during a date night with my wife. One of the things Shawn said to us during our ceremony was to always make time for date nights. To us, that means to be our authentic selves, strengthen our partnership, and never stop falling in love.
My favourite part of a wedding ceremony is right before the kiss. There is so much anticipation in the air and you can just feel all the guests ready to shout for joy and wish the couple well. My wish for newlyweds is that they can start off their married life with honesty, humour and love. With hard work and those three things, a marriage can go a long way.
Your wedding ceremony is the time in your life where you get to define where you’ve come from as a couple and where you want to go. A personalized ceremony affords you the opportunity to hear and experience your story as you know it. We are not about making you fit a wedding ceremony, but creating a wedding ceremony that fits you and tells your story.
We got married at a small park and just loved the experience. Eric was polite and professional and our ceremony was exactly what we wanted.Jessica & Tyson
Getting married during covid19 wasn’t easy in general. Having to plan & re-plan. But YH&M made it work. They were super flexible, reassuring, and easy to work with. Best experience! Our Officiant Eric was amazing and he put all our values first, and made our ceremony fun and memorable!Kendra & Krisztian
