A Ceremony That Actually Feels Like You

What our happy couples say

Our wedding was truly the best day of our lives – and Young Hip and Married was a huge part of that. We knew Stephen Anderson was the officiant for us immediately during our initial call when he expressed his passion for sharing couples love stories and understood our vision for a ceremony with emotion and also lots of laughter.

Without a doubt our custom ceremony was our favourite part of the day, and we still have our guests commenting on how it was theirs as well. We will forever treasure the beautiful ceremony Stephen wrote for us and cannot thank him enough for making our dream day a reality.

If you are debating a custom ceremony – do not think any longer!! It is sooo worth it! And Stephen is AMAZING and we have no doubt would be a worthwhile addition to any other couple’s wedding day.

Rhona Segarra was a joy to work with in officiating our multi cultural wedding blending two different traditions into a beautiful cohesive ceremony. She took the time to know us well, allowed us to co-write her part of the ceremony with her, projected heartfelt warmth and love, and brought many happy tears to the day. We recommend her wholeheartedly as a wedding officiant.

Rhona, you BROUGHT DOWN THE HOUSE! Thank you a millions times over, you were amazing! Your words and the way you spoke it was just exceptional. We felt such warmth and love and support from you and this just added to all the love in the room. We felt connected to you when we first zoom-met and you were the absolute right person to share our love with the world. Thank you!

We had the amazing Melinda Orlowski officiate our wedding on Pender Island a week ago and she was simply wonderful. From the moment we met her, we felt understood, celebrated and really safe in her hands.

Melinda captured our love story perfectly and took the heavy lifting when it came to guiding the ceremony and setting the tone for the wedding. We could not appreciate her more or recommend her more. If we could leave 20 stars we would!

Our big day will never be one to forget thanks to YH&M! Beth was our officiant, and let us tell you we couldn’t have asked for a better officiant! She too was full of personality, and created such a beautiful script for our intimate ceremony at Widgeon Creek.

Our photographer, Erica, was amazing. Despite feeling awkward when taking photos (we’re not ones to pose for mushy gushy photos) she had us laughing throughout, and even though awkward we felt comfortable.

We couldn’t have asked for a better crew from YH&M! Now we fully understand why people say your wedding day is the best day of your life. 150% recommend YH&M. We will be talking about this for the rest of our lives. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We are SO damn happy!

We were originally worried about spending too much on an officiant but after all was said and done we have no regrets. Our Officiant Wade was very professional and catered everything to our lighthearted tone. We had plenty of guests compliments and comments about how everything seems so natural.

Our officiant – Lani Brunn – was absolute magic. She made everything so “us” — very meaningful and personal. Nothing was canned, boring, or cookie-cutter. We appreciated her kindness and humour, and the warmth she showed not just us, but everyone there. Out of the 10 people who were in attendance, all of them have said it was the most authentic wedding they’d ever been to. Yay!!

If we get the chance to marry each other again (or renew our vows) you can bet your butt we’ll be booking with the YHM team again. Unexpected bonus: Lani has coincidentally married 4 other couples we know, and everyone LOVES her. We now jokingly call her the official “family officiant.” Thank you so so so much Lani & everyone at YHM – you made our special day even more special.

Jane officiated our wedding this past weekend and it was amazing! We really wanted a wedding that was short and sweet but had a lot of fun and humor to it. Jane captured all of that! All our guests said the ceremony was so much fun and so “us” and we really appreciate how Jane could capture so much about the two of us.

She was also so quick to respond, even when we had to move the wedding date, and it was super easy to schedule meetings and our rehearsal. You can tell Jane loves to work to make your wedding your own and we really recommend her for anyone who wants to personalize their wedding and make it a fun experience everyone will remember!

Dealing with YH&M was a stress-free process! Jordan was our officiant and we could not have asked for a better turn out. Finalizing vows took only a couple emails and the information he provided for guidance was so helpful! From the timing to the signing, everything was so smooth and seamless. Feels really good to start our marriage off in a way that felt genuinely like us.

What our happy couples say

It all started when we hired YH&M to help us plan a simple and personalized wedding. Rich officiated our marriage on January 28th 2024 in Banff. Although we didn’t meet Rich until the ceremony, he made us feel like we were old friends – very welcoming and comfortable!

He created a beautiful memory filled with love and warmth around us, which made the wedding vibe a lot easy, resulting in an absolute beautiful ceremony. Deanna photography skills is superb.

We are so pleased to work with you and every single step of the way was seamless, smooth and stress-free. Your warm and approachable nature made the ceremony all the more special! We would recommend you guys a thousand times over.

Ask for Wade. He’s fun loving, kind and likes dogs! We had a blast working with him and our guests still talk about how awesome he was! And so down to wear a custom jacket I made him for the occasion!

Wade sees the magic in love, from our first meeting with him hearing his passion for people, relationships whether romantic or otherwise. He made wedding planning so fun. You can tell he genuinely loved getting to know us, getting to know our family and friends. He was up for every challenge, writing our ceremony was truly a collaborative job between us.

The compliments on him and his personality and his love are still being brought up to us. It is such a huge part of the day and our lives and he breezed through it like an old family friend.

His smile says it all. We love him and hope to see him in years to come!

We had a 10/10 experience with Young Hip & Married! There were many bumps along the road with planning our wedding but Shawn was incredible with being super accommodating for us and planned and preformed an absolutely magically ceremony for us! We could not have been more pleased with our experience. We would 100% recommend to anyone looking for Young Hip & Married to marry them!

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.

What our happy couples say

We flew over from HK to Vancouver to have a simple elopement, and we basically knew nothing about wedding / venues / procedures there. YH&M gave us swift and comprehensive suggestions, and more importantly a peace of mind when we were very busy planning for the trip.

The ceremony went very smooth. Jane who officiated us was very very professional. She guided us through our nervous but important moment in life! We couldn’t ask for more for the entire arrangement. Thank you again, YH&M and Jane!

Lauren, we are deeply grateful for the beautiful ceremony that you gave us and for the lovely way that you connected with my family. It was such a special evening.

The decision to do the official ceremony with you before our party next year was so spontaneous that neither of us really knew what to expect. We both felt very honoured by how seriously you took us and surprised by how emotional we became upon hearing your beautiful speech. Even though we barely know one another, you managed to capture the way that we feel about one another perfectly.

Neither of us will forget you or that evening. Truly, anybody who has the chance to be married by you is a lucky person!

Shalom made the whole process easy and simple and gave us advice on what we needed to do leading up to our ceremony. Day of, she was amazing and sweet to work with and helped us figure out what were were doing!

I love that we got paired with our photographer, Nassim, as well who gave us some amazing photos of our special day. I 100% believe and will vouch that using Young Hip and Married is worth the price and would recommend their packages to anyone who is looking for wedding vendors.
