Erika Enns

I didn’t spend my childhood dreaming about my wedding, but as I have ventured through my own marriage, the importance of the wedding day keeps coming up.  A wedding is so much more than just a good party and a beautiful dress!  The vows a couple speaks to each other are so important.  Twenty years into my own marriage, I think I realize now more than ever the weight of those vows.

My husband, Matt, and I have been married for twenty years. In that time, life has gotten busy and our kids have gotten older so squeezing in dates and time together isn’t always easy. But it’s so important to make that time. Sometimes we have to remember to slow down and just enjoy the small moments together.  Making our marriage a priority is never something we regret.

When I’m not officiating, I can be found working at a small unconventional church in Abbotsford with my husband, dreaming of my next travel destination (Croatia and Greece are at the top of my list!) or just hanging out with my family. My favourite jobs ever are being a wife and a mother.

I absolutely love connecting with people, hearing their stories and finding the gold in them. I want to help couples create a ceremony that is creative, intimate and specific to who they are and what they stand for.  

Testimonials

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you!! We truly can’t thank Erika and YH&M enough for all they have done for our special day! From the moment we got in touch with YH&M, they have been nothing but helpful and professional, and got us in touch with the amazing Erika! Erika truly listened to our story and seemed excited to be able to retell it, and you could see it in her work. She told our love story as if it were that of a movie and engrossed the whole room making them feel as though they were living our story with us rather than listening from a far. Leaving our guests all complimenting her and our romantic, “perfectly you” ceremony! Erika was eager to help and make any additions we had; she was friendly, helpful and professional! And in regards to our ever changing wedding due to COVID, YH&M as well as Erika never wavered in their help and support! We are so happy with our wedding and thank YH&M so much!!

  • What we love about YH&M is that they were very responsive. They responded quickly to our questions and emails, and were very professional throughout. They got back to us within the day and we’ve set our date with them easily. That wasn’t easy, considering we had booked them a week prior to our wedding! My husband and I got the elopement package, simply because we wanted it very small and intimate. But just because it was small and intimate, they didn’t make it any less special. Erika Enns was our officiant and she prepared a short and nice message during the ceremony. What made it beautiful was that we were able to say our own vows for each other, and she made sure that the small ceremony was really just about the two of us. They handled all our details very well, and I could not commend them more for how quick and responsive they are considering how short of a time frame we gave them. Our marriage certificate was done in a couple of weeks too! Thank you YH&M team!

    Carlo & Marie Christel
  • We worked with Erika from YH&M for our wedding at Camp Fircom on the Sept long weekend. It was great right from the first meeting (we had 2). Her energy was great, we really clicked, and she was open to doing the ceremony different ways if we wanted, which was really comforting and refreshing for us. Before our second meeting she sent us what she had been working on, it was amazing, truly brought tears to our eyes as it touched us so. For the actual event, Erika was awesome. At the beginning of the ceremony, her presence commanded attention but not in an overbearing way at all. As soon as we were there she made us the focal point without us feeling nervous at all. The words she spoke were just as good as when we read them for the first time before that second meeting. She was engaging, she had warmth, and she spoke with meaningfulness. I would recommend YH&M and Erika to anyone, you’ll get a ceremony you’ll remember for all the right reasons!

  • We have nothing but wonderful things to say about Young Hip & Married. Erika performed our ceremony and it was beautiful. She was a pleasure to work with from the start to the finish. The ceremony was personalized and exactly what we wanted. Highly recommend these wonderful people to be a part of your special day!
    Erika, we can’t thank you enough for the beautiful ceremony you created for us! We’ve had so many comments about the lovely ceremony and the presence you created.  And you were an absolute pleasure to work with.  Thanks for making it so personal and special.

  • Couldn’t have asked for a smoother process. I got the Elopement & Photography Plus package and everyone from the officiant to our photographer was absolutely wonderful! Highly recommend their services.

    Ashly & Dustin
  • Erika, you were absolutely amazing and exceeded all expectations. You gave us the exact ceremony that we wanted, and we don’t think it could have been any better. From the start of the ceremony to the very end, it was perfect. You wrote the most beautiful ceremony that included our guests, gave thanks to our parents and was all about Jonathan and myself. So many people have come to us and said the ceremony was amazing, that you were amazing, and that it was such a heartfelt, and meaningful ceremony. I am pretty sure you had most, if not all, of our guests in tears.

    I think all that is left to say is Thank You, Thank You and Thank You. Thank you to you for everything, I don’t think we will ever be able to say how thankful we are and Thank you to Young, Hip & Married for connecting us with you. We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant, or a better ceremony.

    Kendrianne & Jonathan
  • We cannot recommend YH&M enough, and in particular our absolutely amazing officiant Erika Enns. From the administration, to the owners, to our officiant, everyone was quick to respond, invested in our vision, and most importantly kind. We were one of the couples affected by the Sea to Sky Gondola, and they went above and beyond to ensure our officiant could make our new location for both our rehearsal and wedding. Our ceremony was personal and special, with all our guests saying it was the best they had seen!

    Crystal & Dave
  • Erika, you were amazing! Thank you for making our ceremony classy, trendy, hip, fun, engaging, and as per our expectations. You were engaged throughout the entire process and we truly appreciated that. We received a lot of comments that it was the best ceremony guests had ever been to because it was personal, fun, and I quote, “not ridiculously long or boring.”

    Nancy & James
  • Strongly recommend! Great experience, very in depth asking lots of questing and really getting to know the couple. Fantastic job!

    Shelby & Chris
  • We are so happy that we went with YH&M for our wedding. The ceremony is such a special part and the ability to have an officiant that helps tailor the ceremony to who you are as a couple with the ability to say what you want to say is important. Erika Enns was our officiant and we knew from our first meeting that she was perfect for us. She was so easy to talk to, super friendly and we loved her energy. Being able to work on a wedding script with her was easy and all the tips and links she provided were really helpful when it came to making our ceremony personal to us. Thank you for being a part of our special day!

    Felicia & Ryan
  • I’m so glad I reached out to Young Hip & Married. They made the whole process very simple and hassle free. Our wedding officiant was Erika and she was so nice to work with. Highly recommended!

    Alvin & Akemi
  • Erika,

    We wanted to thank you so much for the great job you did and the positive energy you brought to our wedding ceremony. It was so perfect and we really appreciated how easy you made this whole process for us. Your card was a very thoughtful touch as well!

    We will definitely be recommending you to any friends/family that are getting married in the future.

    Katharine & Jason
  • When we first heard about Young Hip & Married, we were intrigued but didn’t really know how wonderful of an experience it would be. From the beginning to the end, we had nothing but support from the different people we were in touch with and our officiant Erika was just so darn wonderful! She was open, kind, supportive, and so thoughtful about details we hadn’t even considered. The whole process of writing our vows and deciding how we wanted our ceremony to flow could have been so stressful had it not been for Erika – we really can’t say enough about how lovely she is. We truly lucked out in hearing about this company because while they might provide a service, it is so clear it’s much more than that to them. The communication was crystal clear throughout, and we really couldn’t have been happier with our ceremony!

    Gladys & Justin
  • One of the best decisions we made for our wedding (Sept 15th, 2018) was hiring YHM…Erika was professional, thoughtful, kind, patient, generous with her expertise and spirit and powerfully eloquent. Not only was she able to guide us throughout the process but she also found a beautiful way to incorporate our two different cultures and families into the ceremony. She knew exactly how to take our vision and manifest it into action and in such a calm and grounding way. She gave us the peace we needed to just take in our day. Everything was perfect, due in large part to her hard work. We cannot recommend YHM enough.

    Ryna & Sean
  • Young Hip & Married are an incredible team that provide the very best service. We wanted a quiet, personal and intimate experience and thanks to this wonderful team, we got just what we wanted. I highly recommend you try Young Hip & Married if you ever thought of having that special day with that special someone. They will be with you every step of the way, helping you through what can be an overwhelming experience and making it an easy journey to fulfill. Thank you to everyone at Young Hip & Married and thank you to Erika Enns, our officiant, for leading our elopement and for being a delightful human!

    Raphael & Maïté
  • Erika and the team at Young Hip & Married were excellent. Highly recommended.

    Jeremy Clark
  • Erika met with us to find out our story. She helped us personalize our ceremony to our comfort levels. It was sweet, personalized and she really made the experience exceptional! I would recommend YH&M to anyone.

    Jessie & Daryl
  • This was, by far, the best avenue we could’ve taken for our wedding! Erika was an exceptional officiant who kept in contact with us from day one, made sure everything we wanted was included in the ceremony, and even made it as minimalist as possible for my husband when it came to his speaking parts! Our wedding was a surprise, so no one knew it was happening, and Erika blended in with the crowd with ease and played her part perfectly, even with a few wondering stares! We are so, so, happy with Young Hip and Married, and would recommend them in a heartbeat to personalize your wedding and make it a truly special day!

    Eleni & Regan
  • We had a great experience with Young Hip and Married. Planning a wedding is so stressful and for us, and I’m sure a lot of other couples, the ceremony takes a bit of a backseat compared to the reception. With Young Hip and Married I didn’t have to worry about the ceremony at all. Our officiant, Erika, began preparing far in advance so there wasn’t any last minute stress. Even though we never met in person, great care was taken to really get to know us and what we wanted. The ceremony was personal and beautiful and flowed exactly how we wanted without us having to put in sweat and blood get it there. What more can you ask for! If only preparing the reception had been that easy…

    Katie & Ben
  • Our Helicopter Elopement could not have been more perfect!! The sun was shining, it was warm and the snow was deep! Young Hip & Married took all the stress out of our “big day.” They were on their A Game from the beginning and I couldn’t have asked for anything more from them. Erika was absolutely delightful and her calm demeanor calmed me down… not so much my new husband, but oh well!

  • Erika, you were an amazing officiant and we we’re so happy you were the one to officiate our marriage! You were so accommodating due to the weather and the schedule changes and still provided us with a special ceremony that didn’t feel rushed. You really helped validate our vows and unite us as one and shared a sense of humour with the sea planes going by! We wouldn’t have had it any other way! Thank you for creating a moment in time that we will never forget! You are the best!!

    Sarah & Joe
  • We had a small wedding ceremony in Stanley Park set up by Pop Up Weddings and we loved our officiant, Erika. Shawn set us up for success with tips and pointers and an outline prior to the big day so we could write up our vows. I’ve also seen them in action at a friend’s wedding and highly recommend.

    Brenna le Nobel
  • Our officiant Erika was on time, professional and very pleasant to talk to. She understood what we wanted really quickly and completed one of the most important pieces of the whole wedding perfectly. Would definitely recommend her.

    Bruce & Amy
  • Excellent and amazing service! Couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Thank you again for everything!

    Tyler & Stephanie
  • My wife and I used Erika as our officiant, and she couldn’t have been better. I rate 5/5 easily, and would recommend her services to anyone. She was professional, friendly, and really made our ceremony special. Thank you!

    Irek Piekarski
  • Erika, thank you so so much!! You are absolutely amazing! It really was the perfect day and all of our friends and family love what you had said and all the special moment you included (the hell yeah!, Rock Paper Scissors and the high five!). I have to say I will be recommending you to all of my friends because you made our day even more special!

    Solana & Justin
  • Matt and I are so lucky to have worked with such kind-hearted souls like you, Madalena and Marcelo! You set a beautiful tone to our day and could not have asked for a more magical ceremony.

    Matthew & Elsie
  • We truly felt you captured Dave and I as a couple during our ceremony. It was an amazing day and we are so happy that we had you as our officiant!

    Kailah & Dave
  • Wow! We could not have asked for a better experience for our special day. In a (very) short amount of time Young Hip & Married was able to match us with a great location, photographer, and officiant. We loved working with Erika Enns! Her words were so powerful and we were so happy to have our wedding just the way we wanted it. The day was more than magical. Thank you Erika and Young Hip & Married for the awesome experience!

    Kyle & Laura
  • Our officiant, Erika Enns, and Tara were extremely helpful, kind and dedicated. Can’t recommend them enough!

    Katrina Xavier
  • We had Erika Enns and she was AMAZING!!! She made our ceremony perfect, her words were so beautiful, loved everything about it. Not only does she write the ceremony script but also makes sure all the small details are taken care of when going through the rehearsal. YHM may be more expensive than other officiants or marriage commissioners but it’s worth every penny in my opinion.

  • So many of our guests told us the ceremony was their favourite part. You did the most amazing job, completely surpassing our expectations! I remember reading your first draft and crying happy tears because you just got us and captured us so perfectly. Thank you so much for your well wishes. I can only hope Michael and I will have a long and happy marriage like you and your husband!

    Janet & Mark
  • I can’t rate them high enough!!! Erika was absolutely incredible!! She made us feel so comfortable on the day and through the entire process. Love this company!!!
    Erika, you were simply magical. Not only were you the right fit for Ryan and I but my guests continually came up to me after the ceremony and said how beautiful your words were and how calm and chilled out you conducted our ceremony. We couldn’t have asked for anything more and are just so happy with how it all turned out. Thank you so much for being apart of our special day. We will never forget it!

  • Young Hip and Married was really accommodating especially during COVID and all of the changes that came with it. Erika was our officiant and we can’t say enough amazing things about her.

    Alecia & Giles
  • Callan and I knew that we were looking for something different when it came to our ceremony. Not the traditional wedding officiant style that we had seen at weddings before. When we began our planing, we had not heard of Young Hip & Married until our wedding planner shared their website with us. After reviewing each of the team members videos and bios, we decided to meet Erika. Within 3 minutes of meeting Erika, we felt like we had been friends with her for 20 years and that she had been alongside our journey together the entire time. It was a perfect fit. The ceremony that Erika created was truly beautiful and perfectly us. The entire process was amazing from the first interview to each and every interaction we had with Erika and the YH&M team! I remember the day we got our first draft and I cried when I read it, because she had captured every essence of our relationship and love for one another in a way that was us. Best decision we made by far and would highly recommend them to anyone!!

    Jessica & Callan
  • We recently had Erika as our celebrant and it was by far the best decision we made. Erika completely understood us and customized our ceremony. So many of our guests told us their favourite part of the wedding was the ceremony. She was equal parts funny and emotional and captured us so perfectly. In addition to the fact she’s an amazing celebrant, it’s so obvious she loves what she does and is an amazing person. I just wish we could do it all over again!

    Erika & Michael
  • Young Hip & Married are incredible!! We hired them for our elopement in Vancouver last month and they made every aspect of it honestly so enjoyable and easy. Erika Enns was our officiant and she was THE BEST, taking the little details of our relationship and bringing them into the ceremony which made it all the more special. Thank you so much Erika and team for helping us have our dream wedding day and for sharing it with us! If you’re getting married and looking for an incredible officiant, hire these guys!

    Mallory & Shane
  • Young Hip & Married and our officiant, Erika Enns, made our special day even more special! We had an amazing small ceremony at the Lighthouse Park in Vancouver and everything went fantastic! From our first contact to the moment we got our Marriage Certificate – everything was organized professionally, timely communication and important reminders. Definitely recommend these guys!

    Irina & Curtis
  • I’m so glad that we chose Young Hip and Married to officiate our wedding! Erika was awesome in every way; a great combination of fun, sincerity and professionalism. She took the time to really get to know us and helped make the ceremony exactly as we hoped it would be. We can’t thank you enough, Erika! The day was magical and we truly appreciate all that you did to make it that way!

    Cathy & Doug
  • Very professional and knowledgeable. They guided us through this event and we’d be happy to recommend them to anyone.

    Vanessa & James
  • YH&M made everything easy and stress free! The officiant and photographer were both amazing. No complaints whatsoever!

    by Menze Visuals

    Laura & Christopher
  • Young Hip and Married was so easy to work with as we planned our elopement only a month and a half out from the event! The staff were all friendly and easy to communicate with. Our officiant Erika wrote a BEAUTIFUL ceremony for us that included our sons, and at the last minute when she was unable to make it due to a family emergency, Jane stepped in immediately and saved the day! She read Erika’s ceremony and helped it all feel incredibly sweet and personal (yes we all cried). Thanks to all of you for making our day that much more special!

    Rhiannon Jones
  • We chose Young Hip & Married based on reviews and we are so happy that we did! From the beginning, they were so amazing to deal with. Erika was our officiant and she exceeded our expectations in every way possible. She gave us the exact ceremony we wanted which included our guests, giving thanks to our parents and was all about us. Erika was in constant contact with us from the very beginning. She was friendly, prompt with her responses and helped us through the entire process. We have had so many people come to us saying they have never seen a ceremony like ours and that Erika was amazing. Thank you so much Young Hip & Married, and an even bigger thanks to Erika for giving us the best ceremony we could have asked for!!

    Kendrianne
  • We were planning to do a small yet special ceremony! As we were researching ideas, we came across Young Hip & Married! And I am extremely glad we found them! We did a helicopter elopement with Erika as our officiant and Erica as our photographer. The whole experience was so amazing, and exceeded our expectations by far. We couldn’t be happier with our ceremony. Everybody at Young Hip & Married did a great job! The helicopter ride was very beautiful and we landed by a beautiful lake and got married there! Looking at the photos and videos, it is everything we wanted! We recommend Young Hip & Married to everyone who is looking for a unique and romantic experience for their ceremony.

    Mehrnoosh & Zephyr
  • We had the joy of being married by Erika from Young Hip & Married. She made everything so easy and was an absolute doll from the first day we met her. Even leading up to meeting Erika and deciding she was the perfect fit, Young Hip & Married made everything very simple and were so quick to respond to all my questions. Once we met Erika and she began her process of writing our ceremony she went above and beyond everything we imagined to make this so personal. Her words were beautiful and she made everything about us and our love just as we asked. Even after the wedding, Young Hip & Married showed how efficient they are by submitting all of the paperwork so quickly making us receive our marriage license in just under two weeks which we were amazed by. So many thank yous and so much love towards Erika and Young Hip & Married.

    Alisha & Colin
  • The team at Young Hip & Married were such a pleasure to work with! Erika, our officiant, and Rebecca in customer relations were quick to respond to all our questions about the big day and made us feel prepared and at ease! My husband and I loved every second of our special day and we highly recommend Young Hip & Married!!

    Kinga & Nicolas
  • Thank you once again for being our marriage officiant! You made the whole process very easy for us, including the rest of the Young Hip & Married team.

    Alvin & Jumi
  • Thank you SO much for your attention to detail and sense of humour, you got us so well. It was really fun having you part of it and literally wouldn’t change a thing! You adapted your script to suit us and I loved it, you made us laugh too, love that even more!

    Cassandra & Trevor
  • Very helpful with any questions we had up to the day. They were so nice and very patient with us, we would strongly recommend them! Thank you Young Hip and Married!

    Alli & Walter
  • Erika did a wonderful job as our officiant. She got to know us and put together a wonderful speech on our special day. Very professional, reliable, and a pleasure to work with. We strongly recommend this company.

    Brianne & Bryan
  • Hitting speed-bumps are a natural and sometimes common occurrence when planning a wedding, but our officiant Erika and the entire team at Young Hip and Married, really went the extra mile to take care of us! Erika was unbelievably amazing! Personable, professional, and prompt. She took the time to really get to know us and made sure that our ceremony was the best representation of us as a couple. The best part was the love our friends and family expressed afterwards for the presentation and delivery of our story – some friends even left with the intention of hiring YH&M as one of their vendors! Our only wish would be to have had Erika stay for the reception for a celebratory drink for making our day perfect! Thank you Erika and YH&M – you’re the best!

    Erika, we wanted to reach out to you to thank you for doing such an amazing job for us and in such a short amount of time! We honestly had multiple friends and family come up to us afterwards and say how great of a job you did and how much they liked you. After the ceremony, one of the couples even took note of YH&M because they thought you did such a good job and so they might want to go with you for their wedding!

    Sean & Kelsey
  • We used Young Hip and Married to plan our small wedding ceremony. They were easy to talk to and very helpful. We had to postpone our wedding once due to covid and they were very accommodating, our photographer has to cancel the day before due to person reasons and they were able to find us a new one right away. Thanks so much, will definitely be recommending this company.

    Sierra & Michael
  • We both disliked the idea of a big wedding. YH&M provided us with all that we could ever need in a ceremony. Officiant Erika and photographer Tanja were both very professional. We had to hike less than 20mins to our destination (note: for a tiny extra travel fee) however overall worth it compared to paying thousands had we gone the “traditional route.”

    Jen & Eric
  • We originally wanted to elope but YHM had an option of elopement with 20 guests and photographer. We are very happy we went with this as our families wanted to be witnesses. Both the photographer (Sarah) and the officiant (Erika) were great! There were some last minute changes and they were very flexible. Definitely recommend this company.

    Linsey & Nicholas
  • I discovered Young Hip and Married when I was searching for places and ways to elope! Ironically, the day we decided to get married in Vancouver (the day before we were leaving on an Alaskan cruise), Tara had emailed me to see if I had any questions! It was fate! Our fairytale started right then!! Erika was an amazing officiant, walking us through the whole process!! She did an awesome job, finding a great spot in Stanley Park to marry us!! Victoria was our photographer and she, too, made us feel so comfortable and special!!! Thanks for your professionalism and detail!! We could not have been happier with our “Young, Hip, and Crazy” elopement (7 hours after flying in from Chicago)!!

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!

    Barb & Ross
  • We had an excellent experience with Young Hip & Married, who facilitated our intimate ceremony even whilst everything was disrupted by COVID. The communication was great throughout, and our officiant Erika really took the time to get to know us and make our ceremony special. Would definitely recommend!

    Giles & Alecia
  • We had easy communication and a great wedding. Our officiant was excellent and our photographer took some beautiful photos. Excellent all around.

    Charlotte & Matthew
  • Young Hip and Married made getting married effortless! They coordinated everything, from booking our helicopter with SKY to confirming our vendors. Erika was available to answer all of our questions and wrote a beautiful ceremony for us to commit our love to each other!

    Tiia & Lewis
  • WOW! Professional, personalized, individualized, and exactly what you want during your ceremony.

    Our wesding officiant, Erika, started with meeting with us. Then she emailed us with a questionnaire to make a personalized script for the ceremony. Not only was it amazing, but she even reached out to the wedding party to gather some words for the ceremony too.

    On the day of, Erika was spot on with presentation and keeping to schedule. She was even flexible with my request for a certain song to be played as the ceremony was coming to a close. Flexible, check!

    And if you are asking for price? Absolutely it was affordable. It is based on what you are looking for and how much time you will take. I would recommend Young Hip & Married over the government officiants anyday.

    Thank you, Erika. You made it a ceremony that guests were raving about and a ceremony that they listened to every word of.

    James Van
  • Callan and I cannot thank you enough!!! It was truly a perfect day, and having you be a part of our ceremony was the icing on the cake.  The words you spoke, and the way in which you shared them, made us both feel like you had been a part of our journey together, making it that much more special.  So thank you!  We have received non stop compliments on the uniqueness of the ceremony and everyone is asking where did we find you!

    Jess & Callan
  • Erika made us feel really comfortable from the get go. She is real, understanding, and friendly. We felt like we could truly make the ceremony our own unique experience, and we were blown away with how it all came together. Erika was professional, efficient, and flexible from start to finish!

    Megan & Adam
  • Thank you so much for being our officiant Erika. We were both extremely happy with the ceremony, vows, everything really. I thought you brought a calming energy as well as a genuine happiness and excitement – it felt like we had known you for years. Thanks for doing such a fantastic job!

    J.R. & Katherine
  • Our experience with Erika was perfect. She was very warm and personable at our first meeting and her calm, attentive demeanor put us at ease. She addressed all of our wishes, had us consider many important points, and made sure that our personal story would be integrated into the ceremony. She also suggested that we include our son, which we loved and did. It truly made it that much more meaningful for us all.

    On the day of the ceremony she saw us through it like a pro, even though she is terrified of birds! The only reason that we mention it is that we had an outdoor ceremony and right in the middle of it a big bird swooped down right at us! Again, Erica handled it like a pro and didn’t miss a beat. She had our guests entertained and crying with joy and laughter all at the same time. Again, she was perfect.

    Overall, our experience was fantastic and our big day was something we will cherish for the rest of our lives. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Erika to any prospective couple. She is professional, calm and executed the ceremony flawlessly.

    Rosina & Chris
  • This post is long over due, but here it is! I want to give a huge shout out to Erika, our officiant who went above and beyond to make my wedding happen. We were originally meant to get married on March 21, 2020 but that was the week everything was shutting down due to Covid-19. We had to cancel our big events that very week and we were unsure as to whether we could even continue with our smaller events. It was definitely stressful. So we called Erika to ask her if she was available earlier and she said she was. On March 16 (5 days earlier), Erika came to our house and made our ceremony happen. There were only 5 of us (me, my husband, Erika, her mom and friend as two witnesses) in our living room. Now it’s 5 months later and I am so happy that we made the decision that we did. I want to thank Erika for being so professional and so amazing. I would recommend Young Hip & Married and especially Erika!! Thank you again for making one of the most important days so special.

    Sabina & Joe
  • We had an great experience dealing with Young Hip & Married for our wedding. We had Erika as our officiant and she was amazing.

    Alma & Colin
  • I used YOUNG HIP AND MARRIED, to help assign an officiant for my elopement wedding. It was short notice and they were able to assign a wonderful officiant named Erika to come to our wedding. I really liked how efficient the company is; their main contact who organised everything with me always was available for any questions or problems that arose via text. Also being not super religious, I found the marriage vows the officiant wrote for us were perfect and did not focus on any religious aspects. Everything went smoothly, the price we paid for this company was very suitable. I would highly recommend it to young couples who want to take the hassle out of arranging an officiant and a photographer because the YH&M team will arrange it for you as part of their package (Depending on which package you select).

    Tina & Stephen
  • My husband and I were looking for someone special who really understood us to officiate our wedding, and we definitely found that in Young Hip and Married. Our officiant was Erika, and she went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and relaxed with everything, while also having a lot of fun. We would highly recommend them to anyone who are looking at getting an amazing officiant!

  • Thank you, Erika. You made our special day even more special with your kindness and professionalism.

    Everything was excellent and Erika is a wonderful person. She made our special day more remarkable and memorable. Punctuality and professionalism but kindness and a lovely person celebrating. Thank you.

  • We had such a wonderful experience with Erika and YH&M. They made the process very smooth and were definitely the easiest part of the wedding to coordinate. Once we were connected with Erika, it was such a relief knowing the ceremony was in her capable hands and we had one less thing on the wedding planning list. The personalized ceremony she put together was both touching and heartfelt while incorporating humour. We’ve had so many people say it was their favorite ceremony ever and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend YH&M!

  • Super flexible and responsive! We had Erika as our officiant and we had an enjoyable experience from start to finish. She was very responsive the entire process and super flexible with any changes we had, would definitely recommend!

  • In the past few years, I’ve been to a lot of weddings. They’ve all been beautiful, but none of the ceremonies felt like something I would want to have for my wedding. Young Hip & Married gave us the most amazing officiant, Erika, who blew us away with the way she was able to really understand us and blow us away with our customized ceremony! I would absolutely recommend them to every couple who wants their unique love story to be incorporated into their marriage ceremony.

  • When we met in person with Erika at YH&M, we knew right away that she was who we wanted there on the big day. We were pleased with her communication, support, and most importantly her execution on the day. So many of our guests were commenting on how beautiful our ceremony was – Erika kept it short, sweet, and personal. She was a calming presence while standing up there and saying “I do”. Forever grateful.

  • Erika was our officiant and I cannot say enough good things about her; she was incredible. She made everything so comfortable and easy for everyone it felt like I had known her forever. She was extremely prompt with communication and any edits I had to the writing were changed immediately without any problems. She was there for the rehearsal which was wonderful and was able to tell everyone where to go and run though it all which was a huge relief. The writing was wonderful – short and sweet but was also packed with a ton of emotion and meaning. She really took our story and made it personal (which was exactly what we asked for). Everyone was laughing and crying and everyone had something good to say about Erika. Highly recommend to anyone.

  • Erika, thanks so much for everything! You guys made the whole experience exactly as relaxed and beautiful as we hoped it would be.

  • Young Hip & Married was so prompt on all their responses and helped us with EXACTLY what we needed.We were looking for a signing ceremony as we already had an overseas wedding. I was able to make some customizations to our ceremony and Erika was so sweet and funny. She made everything light and really understood our sense of humour and was so supportive of our tiny wedding. WE LOVED IT <3 Thanks for being part of our signing ceremony.

  • Thank you so much Erika (& the rest of the YHM team)!! Appreciate your flexibility and patience especially in this crazy time. Unreal service!! Again, from the bottom of our hearts…thank you!!! Appreciate it all.

    Laurenz & Amanda
  • Our officiant, Erika, took the time to get to know us as a couple and to truly understand exactly what we wanted out of our wedding ceremony. We were able to have complete control over the script and Erika provided us with a lot of suggestions along the way. We wrote our own vows, combining some provided by Erika and our own words. We thought that the ceremony was the perfect length and tone. I liked that we could communicate by text, phone and email. We would highly recommend Erika and Young Hip & Married to prospective couples.

  • Erika was the PERFECT person to lead our wedding ceremony. From the moment I met her, her warm and engaging nature made me feel comfortable and at ease. After just one coffee visit and a short intake form, Erika created a draft ceremony script that was as if she had known Gary and I our whole lives. During the ceremony, she struck the perfect balance between having us and our guests in sentimental tears and light-hearted laughs, which is exactly what we wanted. Our wedding involved the fusion of Western and Sikh cultures, and Erika created a ceremony that honoured our parents and our backgrounds in a unique and perfect way, and gave us words of wisdom to remember as we move on in our marriage together. I cry every time I think of our ceremony and how perfect it was. Thank you for being such an important part of the start of our new lives together.

    Jessica & Gary

  • Young Hip & Married (specifically Erika and Emily) helped me pull off a surprise wedding! There were a lot of moving parts to coordinate and they were both wonderfully supportive and patient. It turned out PERFECTLY. Erika provided us with a unique and heartfelt ceremony, and Emily captured our family perfectly through her lens. HUGE thank you to both of you! I wasn’t sure a surprise wedding was possible, but Young Hip & Married were on board (and excited!) from that first email I sent. So happy with them.
