Jane Halton (she/her)

I did my first wedding for two friends in 2002, followed by a myriad of cousins’ weddings and a few weddings for friends from my swim team.  When I first joined Young Hip and Married in 2013, I wasn’t sure if I would like doing weddings for ‘strangers.’ But it didn’t take long (one wedding!) for me to realize I love it.  Not to mention, by the time we are done planning a wedding ceremony together, we won’t feel like strangers.

I’ve done large fancy weddings in hotels, casual backyard ceremonies, sandy beachfront elopements and I’ve even canoed into a ceremony! The best thing about each of them is that they represented what the couple wanted.  I’d love to work with you to help create a ceremony you love.  Have no idea what you want? No problem!  Know exactly what you’d like? Speak right up. I’m listening.

I will be professional and calm (because most people are a bit nervous in front of everyone).  Whether you want a light-hearted and fun ceremony or something more romantic and serious, I’m happy to create what you desire.  I’d say my natural style is professional with a side of humor. You’ll be confident I know what I’m doing but I won’t steal the show.

Choosing a wedding officiant is a big deal!  We’ve all been to the long boring ceremony where the officiant reads the same script and clearly doesn’t know the couple. But I want to hear your story, what makes you tick and what your hopes are for your wedding ceremony.  

I’d love to get together for a chat and make sure you get all your questions answered.  Mainly, I want you to feel totally comfortable walking down the aisle toward me!  

I wear lots of hats here at Young Hip & Married. Not only am I an officiant, I hire and train all of the officiants and head up our pre-marriage/relationship coaching program. No two days are the same, just like no two couples are the same.

When I’m not marrying people, I love spending time with my husband and two boys. We enjoy going to the beach, making pizza and hanging out in our East Van neighbourhood.

Feel free to read some of my reviews below and ask as many questions as you’d like.

Testimonials

  • We saw Young Hip & Married in action when our best friends got married in 2018. They could not have recommended YH&M highly enough. Now that we’re married, we would confidently recommend them as well. My wife and I were very particular about what we were looking for out of our wedding officiant. Jane ticked all the boxes including some we didn’t realize we needed! She understood exactly what we had envisioned for our ceremony; and was full of good ideas and helpful advice during the planning process. Looking back now, we can’t imagine anyone else presiding over our wedding.

    Ray & Karmen
  • 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
  • We had a great experience using Young Hip and Married for our wedding! We had Jane as our officiant – she was super friendly and was very easy to communicate with throughout our whole wedding process. We had to change our venue 3 times, and she was able to accommodate every change we made. She wasn’t able to make it to our rehearsal, but she made us a personal video outlining every important detail for us to know. She was very responsive to our emails and questions; we couldn’t be happier with the service she provided. Would recommend using her and YH&M for your ceremony!

    Peter & Jenn
  • 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 was our wedding officiant and we have nothing but amazing things to say! On our first Skype call, we immediately knew she was the right person for the job. Her detailed script and prompt replies to my many emails were so helpful! Our wedding ceremony went so perfectly; we have had many guests ask who and where we hired our officiant from! We could not recommend Jane enough. Thank you for making our ceremony so special.

    Morgan & Jeffrey
  • Thanks so much to the team at YHM and especially to our wonderful officiant, Jane. Jane was outstanding. She was patient with use through the preparation, she was funny and insightful in her presentation, and she made us both feel so great during the event. Lots of great comments about Jane from those we shared the day with as well. Most of the comments were about how personal she made the event through her words and comments. Julie and I so appreciate all that Jane did to support us through this exciting process.

    Dan & Julie
  • Jane was an amazing officiant; we couldn’t ask for a better ceremony. Our guests were very impressed by the whole thing and very appreciative of the personal stories and humour. The professionalism she displayed put us at ease; everything was so well thought through from beginning to end. The vow writing tools are extremely helpful as we had no idea where to begin. I highly recommend this service over hiring someone who just shows up on the day.

    Shari & Philippe
  • Jane married us in a very intimate setting and I can’t say enough good things about her. She created an atmosphere where we were able to focus just on one another, and really kept it all about us. Thank you all at YHM for making our day perfect!

    Shawna & Noah
  • We used Y H&M for our small ceremony. It was exactly what we wanted for our big day. Much thanks to Jane.

    Ray L
  • Jane was fantastic and flexible. She made our day seamless and wrote a beautiful ceremony perfect for us. Jane was lovey to deal with and answered all of our questions. Would highly recommend her and this company to anyone looking for an easy stress free ceremony!

    Megan
  • My husband (hihi still new to this) and I had to plan our wedding in two weeks (gatherings were forbidden in Quebec because of Covid and we really wanted to get married on our anniversary date!). On top of being referred to us by a photographer, Young Hip & Married was at the top of the results when we searched for an officiant in Vancouver! That’s because they’re so great to deal with! Jane asked us for all the necessary information beforehand so that the ceremony itself would be a breeze and she provided us with a google doc that explained how the ceremony would go so that there are no surprises! Jane was very nice and professional! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

    Laury & Miguel
  • From the moment we contacted them, the customer service was amazing! Jackie sent us a super fun personable video and was prompt to respond to our questions. Jane helped us pick a location to get married and was also very quick to respond to any questions we had. Jane’s energy was great during the ceremony. We also loved her outfit! Would highly recommend Young Hip and Married!

    Sara & Hollis
  • Jane was our officiant for our intercultural wedding. She helped us craft our ceremony from scratch, and she was very dedicated and knowledgeable. We ended up having the best ceremony, with 3 different cultures incorporated.

    I highly recommend Jane to any couples who want to get married. She is very fun, detailed and also she set up a call to get to know us better.

    Nazanin & Leo
  • It’s a tough decision picking your wedding officiant. We read lots of reviews online and came across Jane (who we hired to be our officiant), and boy did we make the right decision! Jane was so passionate about making our ceremony special, and was very supportive with our requests. Jane is also an incredible speaker. Over half of our wedding guests commented to us about our officiant’s incredible talent. We would highly recommend Jane to anyone that asks! Thanks!

    Jonah & Rachelle
  •  

    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
  • Jane was an amazing officiant. Emotions were high on my wedding and the way my husband and I cope is with comedy. Jane was able to adapt to our chemistry and made us feel very comfortable. There was great communication prior to the ceremony as well.

    Jenny & Nathan
  • Jane Halton was an excellent, efficient, very professional wedding officiant. Our wedding was everything we wanted. The service was what we wanted, and Jane arranged everything perfectly.

    Sharon & Libby
  • 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
  • We worked with officiant Jane Halton through YH&M and we’re so happy we did! From our first meeting with Jane, she was lovely to work with. She wrote a ceremony customized for us. When COVID hit and we had to postpone, she was flexible and supportive through a variety of revisions of the plan with frequently changing restrictions. Overall we couldn’t have been happier to have Jane officiate for us on our special day!

    It was a great experience from start to finish. Meeting Jane prior to the ceremony and sharing our backstory helped tailor the experience to who we are as a couple, while still keeping her signature presentation style. Jane was flexible and made sure we were comfortable during both the rehearsal and ceremony itself. Would definitely recommend to anyone considering their services.

    Sarah & Shaun
  • The service offered by young hip and married was beyond expectation. By far pleased with how they went above and beyond for us to make this a great day. Highly recommended!
    Damon & Bobae
  • We loooved how Young Hip and Married was so simple and straight forward with planning our special day. Jane was our officiant and she was amazing. Emily Nicole was our photographer; we totally recommend her if you want your pictures to blow your mind. They both made us feel at ease and kept the process easy, simple and fun. We loved every minute of it.

    Hamas & Simon
  • My husband and I cannot thank Jane Halton enough for choosing to be our officiant for our special day! Jane was so sweet, calm and relaxed which eased both of our nerves combined. We felt well taken care of and even though our ceremony was short and sweet, Jane made us feel as though we were the only two on the planet for those 10 minutes💞 Thank you Jane for making our special day so memorable!!

    Niki & Steve
  • Despite being the middle of the winter season, YH&M coordinated a flawless 15 minute elopement for me and my wife. This is honestly the only wedding officiant organization to hire if you’re in Vancouver.

  • Could not say enough good things about YH&M! When we were planning our wedding we knew we wanted an intimate ceremony with an officiant who was heartfelt, genuine and who made the ceremony fun yet special. Jane was perfect. We would 100% recommend YH&M for big and small ceremonies. You completely get what you pay for and for us that was so important.

  • My wife, Teresa, and I are incredibly happy with our experience with Young Hip & Married. Everything was so well coordinated and absolutely painless. Rebecca helped connect us to Jane, our officiant, and Clint, our photographer, after letting us describe the kind of ceremony we wanted. Jane officiated beautifully, adding wonderful and intimate touches to our vows. Clint managed to capture so much of our essence as a couple. His beautiful shots will be cherished forever by us. We cannot recommend this company enough. They have a human approach to their business and made us feel special and fully part of the entire process. Thank you so much for everything 🙂

    Michel & Teresa
  • Jane Halton recently officiated our wedding. She was perfect to work with. We had a vision in mind for our ceremony and learned throughout the process with her that what we actually wanted, wasn’t what we thought we wanted when we had started the process. Our ceremony turned out perfectly, and that was in large part as a result of her guidance, patience and flexibility with us.

    Elyse
  • My husband and I had a wonderful experience with YH&M! They have such great communication. Everything went smoothly and thank you to Jane for the nice ceremony. Would highly recommend.

    Marydel & Russell
  • We are so glad we decided to hire Young Hip & Married! Jane was terrific! She was so attentive and worked with us to write a ceremony that fit our personalities. She is calm, organized and professional. We felt at ease during our rehearsal and ceremony. We would definitely recommend her.

    Juliane & Ryan
  • Jane set the tone for the day. Inclusive, relaxed, funny, and warm; everything that we wanted for our day. Every guest commented on how great she was. Our prep was minimal and she understood our schedules and worked with us. I can’t thank Jane and Young Hip and Married enough for being a part of our day.

    Colleen & Dan
  • Jane was absolutely wonderful; she was the perfect person to marry my wife and I. She catered the ceremony to our exact desire and did a very good job on our big day. We would highly recommend her!

    Candice & Steve
  • We did not know at the time of planning our wedding how important the choice of the officiant was. Our ceremony was unique and customized for us and truly the highlight of the big day! We recently got married in Nov 2020 during the height of the second wave lockdown here in BC. It was an extremely stressful time to say the least as our venue closed its doors 7 days out from the wedding and we went from a 50 person wedding to having just our families there. It was challenging but our amazing Officiant JANE was supportive and worked with us to make changes on the fly. We ended up pushing the wedding out one week to a new venue and she was able to accommodate us. In terms of the ceremony, we wanted to have something that highlighted both of our different cultures and again Jane did a great job of working with us on those pieces. We also wanted the ceremony to feel spiritual and special and Jane hit the spot so right. She was easy to work with, responsive, fun, and professional! We were so happy and would certainly recommend Jane and Young Hip & Married to anyone looking for an officiant.

    N & D
  • We had a great experience with Jane. She gave us lots of resources so we could figure out what we wanted for our ceremony. We were able to choose our vows from the great list that she gave us and she walked us through each detail and listened to all of our wants and revisions to the general template that she had. It was important that our ceremony was simple, short, and intimate – which meant it was more informal than your regular ceremony. Many of our guests said it was perfect – that it wasn’t so long and full of pomp as other weddings – but felt special and reflected who we were as individuals and a couple. Neither of us are religious, and my wife feels that some traditions go against her feminist beliefs. Jane ensured our voices were heard and the result was a ceremony that had us laughing, had us crying, and made us remember that this moment doesn’t last long – so we have to enjoy and savor everyone minute.

    Pam & Len
  • 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
  • Jane from Young Hip & Married was amazing as an officiant. She did an awesome job with our wedding; the words shared were perfect and beautiful. We wrote our own vows and the vow writing course was very good, helpful and concise. It helped us tremendously to write our vows. We can’t thank her enough and are very happy that she was our officiant for our wedding.

    Liliana & Jason
  • My husband and I decided back in July 2022 to get married in September 2022. We contacted Young Hip & Married, after having looked through the website and seeing the services they offered. They responded promptly and had a photographer and officiant available on the day we wanted. Our officiant, Jane, was so lovely and the words she spoke during our ceremony were beautiful. Our photographer, John, was nothing short of amazing – his photographs were mind-blowing. In all, it was a perfect day and we could not have have asked for a more “us” wedding day. Thank you so much, YH&M!!! 🙂

    Saghar & Sebastian
  • Jane Halton from Young Hip and Married was absolutely fantastic. She worked with us every step of the way leading up to our wedding and gave us guidance that was incredibly helpful. My wife and I both knew that we wanted to do our own vows, but had no idea where to begin. Jane gave us just enough guidance to help us write our vows while still making sure they were our own; they ended up feeling like the perfect expression of what we wanted to say to each other. She also helped us craft what felt like the perfect ceremony, and we’ve received numerous compliments on the ceremony and our vows following the wedding. We couldn’t have done it without her, and we’re so grateful that we found Young Hip and Married for our wedding.

    Stefan & Stephanie
  • Thanks Young Hip & Married team for being part of our ceremony. The team was very responsive, helpful and supportive. They made everything clear, easy to understand and stress-free. Thanks Jane and Erica again for being with us on a rainy windy day. Highly recommended!

    Annie & Nick
  • Such a lovely experience with Jane from Young Hip and Married. She was professional, warm and guided the ceremony with such grace. I also loved the vow course that YHM sent to us before our big day. Overall an excellent experience.

    Jamie & Blair
  • We love you Jane!!! What an amazing experience we had with Young Hip & Married, Jane was our officiant as well as our pre-wedding coach (highly recommended) and she absolutely rocked it. Our ceremony was more than we could have hoped for and we are so overwhelmed with gratitude. I will 100% be recommending YH&M to all of my friends.

    Bella & Alec
  • 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
  • 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
  • Thanks Erica and Jane! They were super friendly, professional and accommodating. Our wedding was simple and quick. Erica was our photographer and she took some amazing photos that an amateur photographer would not be able to replicate. I highly recommend their services.

    Brandon & Eryl
  • Excellent company to work with. Jane conducted our ceremony and she was perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

    Katherine McKey
  • We worked with Jane of Young Hip & Married, and she was just tremendous! We set up an initial consultation with her in which she went over the services she offered. Our entire meeting went really smoothly, and Jane was so professional and easy to talk to. We knew she was exactly the type of person we wanted to take charge of our ceremony. After our initial meeting, we filled out some questionnaires about our relationship. This questionnaire was to help Jane draft up her script for the ceremony portion. We had unlimited access to altering the script, and Jane always had great suggestions with regards to vows, blessings, etc. We really appreciated this, as we had no idea what we were doing. Jane was always professional, very responsive, and easy to communicate with. She also came to our dress rehearsal and went over the entire ceremony portion in detail with everyone in attendance, which was greatly appreciated. On our wedding day, Jane’s speech was so beautiful and felt so genuine. The ceremony flowed so effortlessly, and Jane spoke of us as if we were old friends. We are forever grateful for all the time and effort she put into writing everything up. We would highly recommend going with Young Hip & Married if you want a stress free experience! Jane even mailed off our marriage licence.

    P.S. Please consider asking all your guests to put their phones away for their ceremony! This was one of Jane’s suggestions, and we are SO glad we listened. Looking out at the sea of familiar faces (not phones!) at our ceremony was one of my favourite parts of our ceremony.

    Joyce & Joe
  • Jane was absolutely amazing officiating my wedding. She’s so easy going, and personalized our ceremony brilliantly to suit the exact mood and style we wanted. Worth every penny. Thanks again Jane!

    Emily & Tyler
  • Super responsive and flexible with our constant wedding date and time changes. Provided great resources. Our officiant was exactly the style we were looking for. Modern, simple and sweet. We did a private elopement before heading to a ceremony that was ‘officiated’ by a close friend. Both were special moments in their own way. Highly recommend.

    Sarah & Erik
  • Jane, thanks so much for all the work you did for us. Our guests really enjoyed the ceremony and the customized touches you added. More importantly though, you made Kathleen and I feel at ease on what was arguably the biggest day of our lives. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.
    Wes & Kathleen
  • We knew we wanted a ceremony that was playful and true to our personalities. Jane with Young Hip and Married was not only friendly and professional, but delivered 110% on this requirement. All of our guests commented on how genuine, heartfelt and fun our entire ceremony was. We couldn’t be happier!

    Sarah & Dan
  • Jane was a wonderful officiant! She was thoughtful in her delivery and so helpful as we organized our elopement ceremony! I couldn’t have asked for a better ceremony that fit us perfectly! Overall it was a seamless process working with Jane and the YHM team. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking for a great wedding ceremony experience!

    Bryanna
  • This team is great! We got exactly what we were hoping for and more. Pleasant to work with and helpful with writing our ceremony. Would recommend!

    Amanda & Jesse
  • We commend them for the exceptional services we received in the midst of the Covid Pandemic 2020!!

    Lynn & Peter
  • Where do I even start?! Jane was awesome, sweet and amazing. Our booking was easy, we started on time and had a blast. If you’re looking for stress free elopement like us, use Jane. 10/10 and thank you from Geoff & Holly Wishlaw xox

    Holly & Geoff
  • YH&M were great! We had a unique ceremony where a close friend acted led the ceremony and the reading of the vows. YH&M were present at the ceremony for the official signing of the marriage license only (as per our wishes). They were very flexible and accommodating about their role in the ceremony. They did a fantastic job, and I would highly recommend them.

    David & Swetha
  • 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
  • Jane did an amazing job at our wedding! Even our friends who interacted with her found her very friendly.

    Althea & Seth
  • Jane Halton from YH&M officiated our day, and I can not recommend her more highly! She had a great presence – keeping us calm and in the moment – and everyone in attendance commented about how lovely her ceremony was. The whole process of hiring Jane was seamless, the team at YH&M really know what they’re doing. If you’re looking for an officiant for your wedding or elopement, look no further!

    Kali & Mitchel
  • Jane Halton officiated our wedding. Communicating with her was easy and we loved that our ceremony & vows told our story authentically. We were a little bit nervous before the rehearsal, but after running through it with her, we felt so much better and hopeful that our day will go smoothly. On our wedding day, Jane was very supportive and made sure to give us little reminders. She worked very well with our coordinator to make sure that our ceremony was smooth-sailing. She completed the paperwork and we got our marriage license soon after the wedding. We are so happy that we chose YH&M and got to work with Jane!
    Andrew & Riela
  • Jane is a great officiant! We are very happy to have her marrying us. Even it was rainy on our elopement day, she did a great job on keeping our elopement run smoothly. The vow course provided by YHM was very useful. It provided us so much inspiration on writing our vows. Highly recommend to any couples who are ready for your next chapter together!

    Evelyn & Jason
  • Jane was the officiant for our wedding and she did such an amazing job. She was very detailed, attentive, answered all our questions, was flexible and knowledgable in editing our scripts, and provided lots of resources for helping us write our vows. Her professionalism definitely showed at our ceremony rehearsal! She knew where certain people should stand, how/when the music should be played, etc. Her speech was perfect – touching, personal, and funny. She was completely respectful of our needs and wants for our ceremony and made everything 100% about us. We will happily recommend Young Hip & Married to all our friends!

    Bee & Simon
  • Working with Young Hip & Married for our tiny park elopement was delightful. From our first email exchange with Tara (super responsive) to our amazing officiant Jane (perfect ceremony in a google doc!), to our wonderful photographer Emily (who met with us beforehand and was totally on the same page with us the whole time), they were all great, professional, easy to work with, etc etc. Loved the experience!

    Andrea
  • 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
  • It was such a huge blessing to have you as our guide throughout our wedding and we couldn’t have imagined it without you! Everything was perfect. We are forever grateful for that day and all your help through the process and so very thankful for all you’ve done.

    Steven & Aleesha
  • My husband and I had friends who where married a few years ago and the thing I most remembered about their wedding was the ceremony. Since usually the ceremony tends to be the most unmemorable thing about a wedding, and not what I wanted mine to be, I asked them who they used. Young Hip and Married was the answer. I’m so glad they shared with us where they found their officiant. When I first contacted Young Hip and Married myself, I received a quick response (which was amazing since inquiries to 6 other officiants/marriage commissioners went unanswered). Young Hip and Married suggested that we meet with one of their officiants, Jane Halton. Jane was the perfect fit for my husband and I. She was able to craft the most beautiful ceremony for us; something that was elegant, with a touch of humour, and not too mushy. It was perfect. How she managed to take a bunch of our ramblings during our interview and subsequent survey she sent us, and turn it into an elegant ceremony that fitted us perfectly was amazing. I’m so glad that we had Jane officiate our day. We would highly recommend her and Young Hip and Married to anyone.

    Samantha & Michael
  • My wife and I had our ceremony January 20th 2018; it was nice and small. Jane officiated for us and was just an absolute pleasure! She made us feel very relaxed and happy, absolutely no pressure, exactly how we wanted our ceremony to go! Great services and highly recommended for anyone looking to get married on a smaller scale!! Thank you so much Jane and thank you Young Hip and Married!

    Colton McLaughlin
  • 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
  • We went through this company for our elopement and they were great! Everyone was really quick to respond to emails, and answer any questions we had. Jane the officiant was amazing; we changed our vows last minute and she was super nice about it and made the switch almost immediately. Clint, the photographer, was great! He suggested poses and saw details in things we never would have thought of. We can’t wait to see the pictures! The only thing I would have changed would be longer on the mountain (we did the helicopter elopement), but in saying that we did know the time limitations before hand, it just went by super super quickly in reality! Thanks again for everything.

    Taylor & Jordan
  • 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
  • Thank you so much to Jane at Young Hip & Married, the experience from start to finish was great. Jane shared ideas, resources and her script with us. I felt like we were able to co-create the tone, atmosphere and language that mattered to us as we made our promises. Most of our communication happened via email and Google docs which worked really well for us. Jane was really flexible and responsive to questions and changes. Most important to us was that Jane has a really lovely presence and led us and our family & friends through the ceremony in a warm, thoughtful, and beautiful way. The ceremony was exactly what we hoped it would be. Thank you so much Jane!

    Christie & Matt
  • The entire experience was fantastic. Jane was amazing and made our day incredible!

    Amanda & Drew
  • Wonderful experience. At first we were hesitant about it – this is quite a non-traditional experience. YH&M was always responsive to us though and provided all the details we needed. My wife and I are actually from Atlanta, GA and had a destination wedding in Vancouver, so YH&M worked perfectly for us. Jane (our officiant) had prepared a lovely intro speech before we said our vows. It was surprising and very heart-warming! The photographer (Amber) was also very friendly and took photos for us in various locations in the city following the ceremony. All in all, this was a worthwhile experience and worth our money. Highly recommended.

  • Young Hip and Married is a very professional service. We contacted them and were connected with Jane Halton. Jane is an amazing officiant. She was very attentive, organized and hosted/wrote/performed a beautiful ceremony for us. We are so happy with having Jane make our wedding day all the more special. Thank you, Jane. Young Hip and Married is an excellent service if you want a reliable, helpful and professional company to help make your wedding day one to remember.

  • Our ceremony was the best part of our wedding day and that is all thanks to Young Hip & Married! Jane Halton officiated our ceremony and from start to finish, it was perfect. We booked Jane with only a month to go due to some covid changes and she immediately jumped into action. She wrote us a beautiful script that perfectly told our personal story and reflected all of our values. She was so open to changes. It was the perfect combination of allowing us to be creative and make our ceremony our own, while knowing that she was guiding us and everything was in her experienced and professional hands. Leading up to the wedding we also completed the Young Hip & Married vows course and it was incredibly helpful. We both wrote our own vows and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!

    On the day, Jane showed up early and coordinated with us and our photographer. Immediately, she was a calming presence. Throughout the ceremony, we didn’t have to once worry about what Jane was going to say. And despite the fact that we had read the script, every word Jane said was so meaningful. Our guests loved her – so many guests, both in-person and on our live stream, raved about our officiant! Jane was the perfect mix of serious, sentimental and funny – exactly what we wanted! We always knew we wanted our ceremony to feel intimate, personal, meaningful and so us. And that is exactly what Jane and Young Hip & Married delivered!

  • 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.

  • YH&M is an amazing company! We had Jane officiate our ceremony and she put many hours of detail into creating a blended Persian & Canadian ceremony unique to us. The price is on the higher end, but it is definitely worth the investment! Our ceremony was personalized, professional, and we had a lot of input into the final version. Well done YH&M!

    Vanessa & Ehsan
  • Our officiant was Jane and she was absolutely wonderful! My husband and I were doing the small elopement package and she was able to walk us through what was going to happen before we started which really calmed down my nerves. We also had great service from Tara; she helped us set up the time with Jane and was supper helpful throughout the entire process. We planned the wedding in a week so everything was at the last minute and this company was kind and willing to find us an officiant so we could make our special day possible. Thank you so much!! Great people and great company!!

  • We didn’t know where to start when planning our small, backyard wedding. I Googled different options and was happy to see the range of packages offered by Young Hip & Married. We booked the elopement package with 90 minutes of photography and it was just enough. Our officiant was Jane and she was really collaborative and responsive when developing our ceremony. She was lovely to work with! And Erica Miller was our photographer. We are just thrilled with our pictures!! She was even able to get my camera-shy husband to look natural. All in all, it was a really great package that made all of the wedding planning way easier!

  • Working with Jane from Young Hip & Married for our wedding ceremony was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. YH&M and Jane were highly recommended to us and we can see why. Jane was so warm and welcoming to us right off the bat at our first meeting. She took the time to get to know us both as a couple and individuals. She created a personalized ceremony for us that was authentic, romantic, light-hearted, and a bit humorous – exactly as we had envisioned it. After the ceremony, we received many comments from guests about how much they loved our ceremony and how much they enjoyed it. Jane and the Young Hip & Married team made our wedding ceremony one we will never forget. We highly recommend their services to everyone.

  • Jane from YH&M was great to work with! She met with us to get to know us where we answered questions about our relationship and she put together a beautiful story for our ceremony. She was professional and was great at communicating. Would definitely recommend.

  • Super helpful and I am ever so grateful for the work that went in this to make our day amazing thank you so much we appreciate you all

  • My husband and I met Jane at Young Hip & Married initially through our good friends. Jane was their officiant, and involved the entire wedding party from the get go. She thoughtfully reached out to each of us so that she could get to know her bride and groom better, and curate a perfect wedding ceremony for them. We were very impressed with Jane, and decided to reach out to her shortly after the wedding to discuss officiating ours! Through our discussions, we decided to try a marriage coaching session with Jane. After one session we saw the benefits, and signed up for four more. Jane covered some serious topics with us, many of which we wouldn’t have discussed in great detail otherwise. She created a comfortable atmosphere for both of us, and an environment where we could talk about anything. Our relationship with Jane has been incredibly special. As she got to know us better, she was able to craft the perfect ceremony that really reflected who we are. Our wedding day was perfect, and Jane played a huge part in that. I think a lot of people overlook the marriage coaching aspect of Young Hip & Married, but it equipped us with some essential skills we will be using for many years to come. Thank you, Jane! You have our highest recommendations!

  • We just want to thank you for making it so easy for us to get married!  Jane, thank you for the tips and and the short but meaningful ceremony!  Without you, we won’t be married legally (literally)! Erica, thank you for being patient with us.  I know it’s an elopement but thank you for putting up with our antics.  The location you suggested was so beautiful and serene!  Now we can always go back there and remember.

    You both were very lovely and welcoming.  Everyone felt comfortable and happy.   My husband who is very shy was raving about how great you guys were and he doesn’t  even do that with me! Thank you Young Hip and Married for making my elopement possible!  Despite the busy season, communicating was easy and all my questions were answered fast. Again, thank you!

    Christian & Kenta
  • It was a very short wedding but regardless of the time and the amount of stuff we wanted to save for our big ceremony, we still cried and felt blessed with how Jane officiated.

  • Best option for elopement! We decided to elope before I can start working again so we decided to hire Young Hip and Married and get their wedding plus photography package. One of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. Despite the busy popular summer wedding months, they were able to respond to my questions in a timely manner. All my questions and concerns where answered. Our officiant Jane was lovely with great tips on how to make your own vows and our photographer Erica Miller was so sweet and patient with us. If you want a hassle-free elopement with photographs to remember your wedding, I highly recommend getting the services of Young Hip and Married. They provide officiants and great photographers.

  • We got married by Jane Halton this Saturday. She made our ceremony simple and beautiful. Highly recommend!

    Diana Meneses
  • We used Young Hip and Married for an elopement package to officially seal the deal (we had a wedding in a location where it wasn’t possible to get a celebrant in). Jane and the team at YH&M were professional, polite and friendly and were clear about their recommendations and their service. Very happy with ours!

    Emmy & Mark
  • Our officiant, Jane, was amazing. We began our journey with her with a plan to hold our ceremony in West Vancouver, and when I suddenly broke my leg and had to rework the entire plan, and switch our location to Richmond, she was nothing but understanding and supportive. The way she ran our ceremony was wonderful. Quick, casual, but beautiful and warm – exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend her. She really made the ceremony part of our wedding day feel effortless.

    Vivi & Aaron
  • Great Experience! Young Hip and Married was a great wedding experience for us. We were given a detailed break down at a very affordable price. Anytime we had any questions leading up to the wedding we were immediately got back to with the answers. Our officiant Jane was prompt, friendly and very professional. Overall this company helped make our day special.

  • We have had such an amazing experience with YH&M! We were able to link with Jane who was the very best helping us out along the way and having such great communication with us. She lead our ceremony so beautifully we were tearing from the very beginning with her words. We were able to have help with the videos provided for making our custom vows too! The weekly reminders to complete the vow course was a nice touch. Thank you guys so much for everything we appreciate you! We will definitely be spreading the word on YH&M

  • Using Young Hip & Married was one of the best choices we made in our wedding planning process. Our officiant, Jane, was easy to work with and made us feel excited and comfortable. The ceremony was totally “us” and we received many comments and compliments about how engaging our ceremony was and how she made everyone feel at ease. If you are debating about using them for your wedding, don’t! Their services are totally worth it! Thanks Jane!

    Chelsea & Ryan
  • 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.

  • Jane Halton was great! On time, energetic and very personable. I highly recommend her!!! Thank you Young Hip and Married!

    Dan Reynolds
  • Young Hip & Married were SO easy to work with. We’re in Australia and submitted an enquiry about eloping before travelling to Canada. They got straight back to us with a personalised video and all the details we needed. It was made super simple – all we had to do was pick a time and location; they did the rest! We wanted a simple, very casual ceremony with just us. We met the celebrant (Jane ) and photographer (Emily) at the park we chose and the ceremony and photos were all done within an hour. It was perfect!

    Gabrielle & Lincoln
  • I cannot speak highly enough of Young Hip and Married. Professional and accommodating while being super affordable, they managed to roll with the restrictions on indoor dining being announced the day before our wedding and still helped make it the best day of our lives.

    Chris & Carissa
  • 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.

  • Young Hip & Married were incredible. They help connect you with an officiant; we had Jane for our special day. She laid everything out clear and simple and allowed us to make adjustments to the ceremony.

    Jane had great communication and was always quick to respond. She had great suggestions when we felt lost or didn’t know what to do. Young Hip & Married also offer the option of helping set up pre-marriage counselling and tell you where you can get a marriage license. The communication was incredible and extremely helpful. They took the stress out of everything!
