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.
I am Colin’s mom and I just want to thank you for presiding over their vows on Friday. Obviously the event is highly emotional and I would say even tense! But I commented to Colin and Jaime that I felt your introduction before their vows allowed us all to catch our breath, relax, and then really enjoy the ceremony that followed. I appreciated your small injections of humour during the ceremony and the way you spoke, and what you said was truly beautiful. I know you must do many, many of these ceremonies but of course for us it’s just the one. It felt to me that you treated it as if it was just the one for you too! So I asked Colin for your email to specifically thank you for making the ceremony so wonderful for all of us!! Thanks again!Heather
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
Very professional and knowledgeable. They guided us through this event and we’d be happy to recommend them to anyone.Vanessa & James
We are so happy we had Erika Enns from Young Hip and Married officiate our wedding. We knew right away when we met Erika that it was a good fit and she made the whole process easy and enjoyable. We loved how she told our story and helped us choose what type of vows we wanted to go with, etc. Several guests commented on how much they liked her and how she helped create the perfect ceremony. Thank you so much Erika!!Jaime & Colin
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
Erika was our officiant. She was wonderful to work with. Very professional, responds quick and is very flexible and giving with her time. Highly recommend!Metica & Aristotle
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!Ashley & Rebecca
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
I hired Erika to be the officiant for our wedding day and she is AMAZING! We had to postpone our wedding 4 times due to Covid and every time she was available and very understanding. Her communication is great and response time is fast. I had my rehearsal the same day she had to officiate at another wedding and she was still able to make it on time for my rehearsal. I am so happy with this service and will recommend this company to anyone getting married.Tamara & Palmer
YH&M was so great. The team was super helpful and supportive throughout the pandemic ups and downs, including numerous date changes. We took Shawn’s really beneficial vow writing course, and Erika, our officiant, was so lovely, organized, and helped create a beautiful ceremony. Can’t recommend them enough!Kate & Raul
We were engaged in early April and between the pandemic and having all of our family on the other side of the country, we were unsure how we would plan our wedding. After scrolling through different wedding officiant services, something about YHMs page caught our eye. We had no idea where or when, but we sent off an email. From the very first response we could tell we chose correctly. They were so helpful and quick to respond, they spent time helping us decide where, and when we gave them our date, they immediately said they could accommodate us. Erika our officiant was so helpful with handling most of the wedding license process and guided us with the rest.
On our special day, our officiant Erika greeted us like old friends and we instantly felt comfortable. She was the perfect addition to our day and we will remember her fondly always! Our photographer, Erica, was also out of this world. She was there for the entire process from the first email. Showing us photos of locations and helping us decide on the perfect time. We got married standing next to the ocean at sunset and it was PERFECT. Erica even watched the weather and the tides leading up to our day to ensure the perfect day. Her genuine sincerity and the level of care that she puts into her clients and her work, is unmatched. We cannot imagine our day with anyone else. We are both pretty shy and Erica was able to direct us, without really telling us to pose, by just getting us to be ourselves and laugh; she was incredible. The photos are absolutely stunning; she captured every moment and every emotion in that moment. Our photos will forever make us laugh, cry and smile at all the detail and emotion she captured.
Everything with YHM was so seamless and stress-free, everything was planned so well and the communication was flawless. We wouldn’t change a thing about our day and we would recommend YHM to anyone who’s looking for something different, unique or personally tailored to what you had in mind – this group of people can make it happen. Thank you again, YHM!Shelby & Curt
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
Super easy folks to work with at YH&M! Erika married us this autumn, and Amber-Leigh was our photographer. It was a blast. We were laughing until we were in tears. Will highly recommend to anyone I know!Lucia & Baron
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
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
- We wanted to say a big thank you for officiating such a natural and organic ceremony! It went beautifully with the setting and our personalities. I could tell that our guests had a great time, and you absolutely helped facilitate that!Jeremy & Josephine
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
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 used them through our Adventure Elopement package with Will Pursell Photography. She did a great job. And even though we had to change a location about a week or so before our wedding, due to extra covid restrictions about travel within health regions, she was understanding and polite and it all went very smooth! Would recommend them for sure!Crystal & Tyler
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
I enjoyed your officiating. I wished that I could have thanked you in person after the ceremony. You were able to give everyone in the room an excellent idea of the relationship between Mark and Rebecca. You described them both so well. Thanks so much for making this event and last summer’s event so wonderful!Carolyne (Mother of the Groom)
- Ahhhhh it was such a dream! It almost feels like it didn’t happened it passed by so fast! Awww it was truly a pleasure having you; I couldn’t imagine anyone better for the job! You handled the rain with so much grace as well, I barely even felt that it was raining to be honest!Mariah & Anthony
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
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
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
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
Erika and the team at Young Hip & Married were excellent. Highly recommended.Jeremy Clark
We are so happy that we chose YH&M to perform our wedding ceremony! They were quick to respond and find us an officiant that fit with our needs, and helped us every step of the way with editing our ceremony and writing our own vows. A few days before the wedding, our original officiant was unable to perform our ceremony, but we were quickly put in touch with an alternative officiant and it was a seamless transition with zero panic or stress!Molly & Alex
We had a last minute wedding, but YH&M were able to fit us in and we are so happy they did! Erika was so wonderful to work with and she did such an amazing job officiating our wedding. We honestly couldn’t have been happier. Thank you for helping to make our day so perfect for us!Katie & Anthony
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
Such a great experience using YHM for my wedding. Super professional and lovely people – thank you!!Michelle & Craig
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.

- 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!Cassidy & Jack
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!Chelsea Domich
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 knew Young Hip and Married would be the best choice after watching my sister have such a positive experience at her own wedding two years previous – we were lucky enough to get the same officiant, Erika! The entire experience from the initial emails, to the video chats with Jackie-Deane and Erika, to our actual wedding was such a delight. Everyone was patient, understanding, and flexible. Our needs were acknowledged and met with the upmost positivity. The day of our wedding was absolutely beautiful – Erika really engaged the guests, and kept the ceremony light and fun, which was the exact atmosphere that we were looking for. We cannot suggest anyone else other than YH&M to do your wedding; you will not regret it as we certainly did not! Thanks again to everyone on the team who ensured we had an amazing day!!!Josephine & Jeremy
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
These guys are the best! They know what great customer service is and they execute on it every single time. I got the rockin wedding package and they let me customize our ceremony 100%. Can’t say enough good things about these guys. I had Erika for my officiant. She’s just the loveliest person and is a truly talented officiant. I love the way she writes.Gina & Brett
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
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 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
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
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!Meaghan & Anthony
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!!Angelica & Ryan
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
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
From the first virtual meeting with Erika Enns we had an awesome connection and tons of fun laughing. Erika made the whole ceremony clear and easy to understand (for us newbs who had no idea what we were doing). The personalized ceremony and her lovely personality really helped us feel at ease on the Big Day and we were very confident walking down the aisle <3 Young Hip and Married is a fantastic company and Erika is amazing!Brittani & Chris
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
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
Erika was incredible, welcoming and attentive to our needs. She really rounded out our ceremony well! Everyone loved her!!Jade & Fred
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
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
- 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!Jenna & Ryan
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
- Our elopement in Vancouver with Erika was perfect! Rebecca helped us to organise it and the whole process was stress free. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Thank you to all involved!Lucy & Phil
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
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
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
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
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
We have nothing but good things to say about Erika and the staff at YH&M! They were able to work with us and advise on the difficult procedures to do with COVID restrictions. When our original officiant with them had to drop out due to unforeseen circumstances, we were set up with a new and also great replacement immediately.
Erika and the YH&M team were great and helped us with the replanning of our wedding during the COVID pandemic. She tailored a wonderful ceremony for us, and ensured that we were able to have a safe wedding.Cierra & Matt
We used Young, Hip and Married for our officiant service. Erika was amazing and really took time to make the ceremony very personalized. She had multiple conversations with us to get to know us individually and as a couple. She also reached out to friends and family to get different perspectives. The whole team made the process very comfortable. I would absolutely recommend using them.Colton & Cassandra
Erika, thanks so much for everything! You guys made the whole experience exactly as relaxed and beautiful as we hoped it would be.Dannie & Lyle
We had such an amazing experience working with young hip & married. Especially our officiant Erika! Despite not being able to meet prior to our wedding due to Covid-19, the email communication was very prompt! I cant tell you the amount of times I bugged Rebecca and Erika with questions/changing of time line. They both were so great throughout the entire process. Erika was so kind, funny and all around a good time. Our ceremony was short and sweet just how we wanted it, in that short time of talking/meeting Erika my husband and I both felt so comfortable!! Not everyday you meet a “stranger” and feel so comfortable around them. To anyone who is looking for a fantastic officiant I would highly recommend working with young hip & married, especially Erika!Tennille & Conrad
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
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
- Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding!! You have such a nurturing, warm, and kind energy. The ceremony was wonderful! We are so happy to be married!! Thank you for your lovely presence on our day!Janet & Mark
We got married in our home on Nov 7/21 and Erika Enns was our wedding officiant. She did a great job performing our wedding ceremony in front of our 4 adult children. She was professional and spontaneous and helped make our ceremony a very special and memorable one. I would highly recommend Young Hip & Married if you are looking to tie the knot!Jinet & Michael
The Young Hip and Married team is fantastic. They are easy to communicate with and quick to respond. We were paired with Erika and she did an amazing job. She took the time to get to know us and she was open to all our suggestions. We had an small ceremony with family and close friends. Erika fit in perfectly and made our ceremony feel very personal and very us. Can’t recommend Erika and the Young Hip Married team enough.Lexie & Mick
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.Julie & John
We had easy communication and a great wedding. Our officiant was excellent and our photographer took some beautiful photos. Excellent all around.Charlotte & Matthew
Thank you so much for sharing our day with us. It was a wonderful day, thank goodness the weather held out for us. Thank you again for being our officiant, you were amazing and the ceremony was perfect for us.Deanna & Steve
Erika at Young Hip and Married went above and beyond to help make our day magical! She got to know us, captured our story and gave our guests a ceremony to remember! Thank you, Erika 🙂Kirsten & Brian
Young Hip and Married is an exceptional group of people who we felt genuinely cared that we have the best wedding experience possible, from the very beginning to the big day, and even after! We so appreciated the entire process, and the flexibility for us to be involved in the writing of the ceremony. Both us and our guests were blown away on the execution by Erika on the day of the wedding. Certainly a milestone moment in our lives we will look back on with smiles on our faces.Sam & Scott
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
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
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
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
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!Erika & Michael
Thank you so much for your kind words! Everyone said that you did such a fantastic job and people really got a kick out of the hand fasting. It was different and a little unique, so thank you for making it happen! I’ve enjoyed my experience with you and the company since day 1. If someone were to ask me what legendary customer service is, I’d point at you guys!Gina & Brett
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
We just wanted to say thank you so much, Erika! We really appreciated you being there and we couldn’t have asked for a better officiant! Thanks for all of your work and also your flexibility with COVID19 and the sudden change in venue.Victoria & Sam
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.Jennifer & Anthony
YH&M made everything easy and stress free! The officiant and photographer were both amazing. No complaints whatsoever!Laura & Christopher
- 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.Justine & Hatem
Strongly recommend! Great experience, very in depth asking lots of questing and really getting to know the couple. Fantastic job!Shelby & Chris
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
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
Erika was awesome 😊 easy going and made everything very comfortable 👌🏼Nikki & Dennis
Our officiant, Erika Enns, and Tara were extremely helpful, kind and dedicated. Can’t recommend them enough!Katrina Xavier
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
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
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.Sarah & Gary
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
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.Cassandra & Trevor
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
We would highly recommend Young Hip & Married to anyone who is looking to elope in BC! Booking was a breeze, the team promptly responded to any questions we had and they were a delight to deal with. We are over the moon with the photos we have received so far, and we received our filed marriage certificate in a few weeks. Due to the weather, we had to change the location we were hoping to get married at multiple times on the day. Both Erica (photographer) and Erika (officiant) dealt with our last minute panic with a smile and showed nothing but professionalism. If you are looking to elope in BC, there isn’t any better option then YH&M… it is as simple as that 🙂Kieran & Hannah
YH&M was exactly the right choice for our elopement. We always knew we wanted to elope, it was just a matter of how. When we decided on a helicopter adventure with Sky and our photographers, Isle and Oak, Young Hip & Married was the perfect next choice. They’ve all worked together before! We love that they are inclusive, modern in all the right ways, and focused on what makes each union unique. Erika met us at the hangar and her kind, calm (while still being excited), professional demeanour shone through. She listened to us about the story of the origin of our rings, and then added it into the ceremony. We are so grateful for her, and the way in which YH&M took care of us through the whole process. 10/10.Kim & Chris
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
