Young Hip & Married Reviews
We had the pleasure of hiring Jonathan Manafo to be our officiant for our wedding in Uxbridge. He was AMAZING! Very organized, always on time for meetings/calls but more importantly, we felt like he really took an interest in getting to know us and making sure that our ceremony was exactly how we wanted it. We got so much positive feedback from family and friends afterwards as well. He made our ceremony so fun and everyone loved him! I would highly recommend Jonathan to anyone looking for an officiant for their big day.Ashley & Moses
We had Shawn from Young Hip & Married at our wedding – he was everything we could have wanted and more! Really set the vibe we were looking for and everyone loved him! Highly recommend them 🙂Kelsey & Sean
We had easy communication and a great wedding. Our officiant was excellent and our photographer took some beautiful photos. Excellent all around.Charlotte & Matthew
We had a small and intimate wedding ceremony on a mountain top. It was even more than what we dreamed of! The helicopter ride was very smooth and the scenery was stunning. YH&M provided us with a very friendly, kind, and patient officiant (Kristen) and a very talented photographer (Emily). The whole package was also very affordable! I would recommend YH&M to anyone looking to have an intimate ceremony.Fai & Daniel
We just wanted to express our appreciation once again for your help in making our wedding a very stress-free and happy occasion. Your calm command of the requirements along with your understanding of our wishes to keep things memorable but light set the tone for a beautiful wedding. The resources you provided to help us personalize the ceremony, along with your willingness to include our wishes, let us feel like we got exactly what we wanted. Thanks again for performing a lovely ceremony. We couldn’t be happier!Linda & Peter
Thank you thank you thank you! You guys are real pros. Our day was awesome and completely stress free. You all kept us informed, on track and laughing. We have already been talking non-stop about how awesome your company is.We worked with both Kadee and Erica and would recommend both of them to family and friends or anyone else looking for a relaxed (but organized) and fun day! Everything was exactly as we imagined, if not better.Thanks so much for helping us start the rest of our lives in the most awesome way.Sydney & Luke
We chose the elopement package for out wedding and it was perfect!
Short and efficient but very intimate and sencere. Shawn did an amazing job, making our day special.
Thank you❤️Martina & Andrew
Young Hip & Married is the way to go! We had the most wonderful experience working with them and are so grateful to our officiant, Peter, for his beautiful words at our ceremony and all of his help along the way. We were supposed to get married in 2020, and when we decided to postpone our wedding until 2021, YH&M were very accommodating and helpful! Peter made us feel so supported and heard during the preparations and he was such a warm, funny, and all around awesome officiant. We are so grateful to YH&M and highly recommend them!Tatiana & Geoff
Erika was lovely and very easy to work with. Our Elopement ceremony was held on our boat in Vancouver harbour. Young Hip and Married helped us coordinate our amazing day and remained flexible as we finalized details. We enjoyed meeting Erica and loved her warm, friendly personality, her humour and positive, cheery demeanour. Overall, our day was exactly what we wanted. We would recommend Young, Hip and Married to anyone wanting to get married.Jodi & Rob
Shawn was awesome. He matched the feeling of our wedding perfectly. He was super engaging and fun to work with, and the ceremony was perfect. Thanks guys!Alijah & Eve
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
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.Keven Wang
My husband and I recently got married and our officiant, Erika, was amazing. She made the process so easy and we felt very comfortable and relaxed at our wedding. All of our guests loved her and thought our ceremony was really fun and beautiful. Young Hip and Married is an awesome business and I highly recommend them.Sadie & Isidoro
Peter Le Grand was our officiant and was truly amazing. He really made our ceremony absolutely perfect and really tailored it to our relationship. He provided us with guidance and many options that it really was a ceremony just for us. Peter was flexible, really enthusiastic, gracious, compassionate and added just the right amount of humour to calm the nerves. Peter created a ceremony for us that was truly perfect. We absolutely loved that he was part of our day. Thank you Peter!Sherry & Christian
I have never been so sincere in writing a review for any service I have used, as I am about to be regarding Young Hip & Married. We are so beyond thankful and appreciative of the amazing, amazing, amazing ceremony their officiant Mark Groleau put together for us! It was so perfect and so truly captured the essence of our relationship. Every single one of our guests said that he was the best officiant that they had ever experienced and it was the most intimate and sincere wedding they had ever been to. His patience with the kids, his sense of humour, his focus on our love and sincere words made all the difference. It is something we will never, ever forget!Kate
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
Young Hip & Married was absolutely fabulous! They were so professional, amazing, and kind throughout the whole process! They made our day extra special and everyone really felt the love that day.Taylor & Elise
Shawn, the officiant, created a beautiful and unique wedding ceremony for us. He was very flexible with our vision of a wedding ceremony. As well, he also gave us some good ideas. It was a good experience and I would recommend Young, Hip & Married for any couple getting married.Jill & George
Kristen was amazing! We are so grateful to have had her as our officiant. From the beginning with Tara, to our first meeting with Kristen, YH&M was prompt, professional and they really love what they do! Thank you so much for an amazing ceremony and thank you Kristen for all the work and time that you had put into the script and getting to really know us!Natasha R
Bobbi did such an amazing job with our wedding ceremony. There is not enough words to describe how appreciative my husband and I are that Bobbi took the time and effort to get to know our story and personalize our vows. My husband and I were looking for an alternative to the traditional justice of the peace/church ceremony and Young Hip and Married was the prefect match for us! When I first viewed Bobbi’s profile I knew that she would be the prefect wedding commissioner for us! And I was 100% right. Even though we only had a few meetings with Bobbi, it is easy to tell that she is a beautiful person inside and out. We were super comfortable with her and able to open up and let her see the inner workings of our relationship. She was able to embody exactly who we were in our wedding ceremony. She brought fun and laughter, while capturing our hopeless romanticism. We want to thank her from the bottom of our heartSheila & Alex
YH&M was patient with me during the year (or two) it took to finally nail down actual elopement plans. After almost booking pretty well every option they offer, and going back and forth with about a million location ideas (and actually booking the helicopter elopement, before remembering I’m afraid of flying…), they worked with me and supported me through the entire process. I greatly appreciated the ease and flexibility in the planning and personalization of our ceremony, which was extremely important to us. Randy was an easy going “go with the flow” kind of guy – which rounded out our experience perfectly. No regrets with choosing YH&M to be a part of our special day!Tania
My husband and I found Young Hip & Married via Google and were immediately drawn to the company as they offer a fantastic service that allows couples to facilitate a personalized ceremony where they can be “married” by a friend/family member, while still having the marriage/ceremony be legalized through the attendance of one of YH&M’s officiants who is witnessing the ceremony and comes up for the legal signing of the licence (which could also be done ahead of time or afterwards at the couple’s choosing).
It was important to us to have the legalization of our marriage done during the ceremony, and YH&M was incredibly accommodating and set us up with Erika Enns, who was an absolute pleasure to work with. We spoke with Erika over the phone and she immediately was kind and supportive of our plan, understanding what we wanted right off the bat.
On our wedding day, she arrived early and prepared and having previously gave her our license, she brought it up for the signing during the ceremony. Erika was quick and efficient, very helpfully ensuring the ceremony continued on easily while clearly explaining who needed to sign what and where. She was so nice to work with and was a perfect addition to our day! Thank you so very much YH&M and Erika for making our vision come true!Deyell & Russell

We took part in the Valentine’s Day Weddings at Robson Square on February 14th, 2015. We had the pleasure of Shawn marrying us. He was extremely flexible and made us feel as if we were the only couple there that day getting married. After the wedding, he e-mailed us the vows he used so we could print them off and put them with a picture from that day. We would highly recommend Shawn to anyone looking for an officiant.Karmin
My partner and I scheduled an elopement through Young Hip & Married and have nothing but wonderful things to say about our experience. We specifically asked for an LGBTQ friendly officiant and they connected us with Beth! Beth was the perfect fit for us, asked us lots of questions and delivered a beautifully personalized ceremony. We would highly recommend for any couples looking for a very low stress and pleasant experience.Em & Beatrice
- We cannot express how incredibly happy we were with our ceremony and the whole process with YH&M. We opted for the full package deal and were able to tailor the ceremony; it also came with a vow writing course, which was extremely helpful. So many people told us how beautiful our vows and ceremony were. Our guests were surprised that our officiant, Jordan, wasn’t a close friend with how personal the ceremony felt. Thank you YH&M!Megan & Ariel
Janie was the perfect officiant for our wedding this last September. She was easy to work with throughout our engagement, and she was very open to hearing what we wanted for our ceremony. Her message was funny and personal, and she hit on everything that was important to us. I had multiple people throughout my reception raving about what a wonderful job Janie did. I can not recommend her more emphatically. Janie will do a wonderful job officiating your wedding.Emma & Robbie
Young Hip and Married was amazing to work with! We did an elopement with photography package and got to work with Shawn as our officiant and Erica for the photos! The YH&M staff were quick to answer all our questions and very understanding during covid times when we had to change our wedding date last minute. The notes sent to us by Shawn before the wedding date were so helpful and relieved any and all stress because we knew exactly what the expect on our special day.Breann & Barney
Rhona, thank you for officiating our wedding. It was a great day and the ceremony was perfect. We received a lot of compliments on how the ceremony was done, and I couldn’t be happier with how it went.Crystal & Bruce
Beth was the perfect officiant! We had specific things we really wanted in the ceremony and having it personalized was really important. Beth crushed it! It’s been almost a month and people are still commenting on how great she was!Olek & Emily
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.

We worked with Lani – she was beyond amazing. Hilarious, extremely warm and kind; we couldn’t have wished for a better officiant. She was excellent at listening to our story and writing a beautiful version for the ceremony. She also was fantastic at wrangling the wedding party in a fun and easy going way. Grateful for her and highly recommend using her for your special day!Bree & Steve
- We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you! Our day was so amazing and our ceremony was definitely our favourite part. I’ve already had a few people interested in booking you guys for their weddings! We appreciate all of the hard work you put into the ceremony and making us and our guests feel comfortable. We are so glad we did our own vows and we will cherish them forever! Again, can’t thank you enough.Paulina & Mitchell
Kadee was an amazing officiant. From day 1, she was organized, efficient and always quick to reply to our inquiries. During our wedding journey, Kadee made sure to check in to ensure that everything was on track, reached out to our family and friends for additional insight as well as providing details well in advance of what to expect on the big day. As a result, the ceremony went off without a hitch and exceeded all of our expectations. Thank you Kadee!Carl & Cathy
Thank you so much for everything yesterday. You wrote the perfect signing ceremony for us and we are forever grateful we were able to have this private moment with our siblings.
I don’t think I will ever forget you having our siblings perform the declaration at the end. Thank you for this memory. Thank you again for being a part of our day.Jessalyn & Eric
Young Hip & Married made our elopement super easy to plan (which is why we wanted to elope in the first place – very little planning!). We were connected with our wonderful officiant, Layne Kilbreath, who helped us organize our ceremony and provided guidance on how to complete paperwork beforehand. Layne worked with us during the few months leading up to the big day and collaborated with us to design a unique and personal ceremony. Layne met us at Moraine Lake (our ceremony destination) the day of and he was very friendly, prepared, and well-matched to our personalities. This whole process has been such a positive experience! Nik and I had the wedding of our dreams, and we highly recommend Young Hip & Married.Katherine & Nikolaus
We had an amazing experience with Young Hip and Married. We had Shawn Miller as our officiant, and we couldn’t be happier! He was kind, personable, communicative and attentive. YHM created a unique ceremony tailored to our personalities and hobbies, and Shawn did an amazing job telling “our story”. Our ceremony was funny, entertaining, romantic all in one, and people thought that Shawn had known us for years! It wasn’t the “boring” ceremony you hear at weddings, and I love that he gave us a script and asked us questions along the way. I love the fact that we also have a copy of it; I will print it out and put it in a wedding book 🙂 If you are thinking of hiring YHM for your wedding, DO IT! You won’t regret it! Thank you so so much Shawn 🙂Melissa & Steven
Our experience with this company was nothing short of amazing. They are very prompt and selected an officiant that worked perfectly for us. Rhona was amazing and we do not have enough nice things to say! She was so helpful in each part of planning and preparing our perfect ceremony. My husband and I were nervous about writing our own vows and Rhona helped us create a very special and meaningful ceremony and vows and we could not be more appreciative. I would highly recommend for anyone planning a wedding! Thanks again!Anne & Duncan
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
Young Hip and Married is the perfect way to go if you want flexibility in your ceremony! Beth was an absolute delight to work with. We met with her and she got to know about us and our story and she turned that into a ceremony that absolutely blew us away. It was personal and heartfelt and very much matched our vibe. Many people gave us compliments on her and asked us where we found her! She was also very accommodating when we had a lot of last-minute changes due to unforeseen circumstances. The whole ceremony still felt natural and she knows how to please a crowd! Our wedding was almost a disaster but Beth was a big part in making sure that it truly a memorable day!Ben & Shelby
My husband and I worked with Shalom and feel like we could not have had a better experience! Right from the beginning, the Young Hip and Married team brought incredible communication and set us up with an officiant who would be a great match, sensitive to our needs. Shalom created a custom ceremony that highlighted our story and shared our love perfectly. Thanks for being part of our perfect day!Erin & Jordan
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
Our experience with Young Hip & Married was absolutely amazing. We met with Jon over a coffee to get to know each other and we bonded quickly! It felt like we knew Jon for a long time and he showed great interest in our personal lives and love story. He was thorough in his preparation and we had full confidence in him for our big day. My husband and I highly suggest booking this company for your ceremony. They make your experience stress free and personalized. Our officiant Jon did not disappoint. He had a natural way to to hold the room/read the crowd. He made our ceremony fun, relaxed, yet very touching. We would highly recommend him or any other Young Hip & Married officiant for your wedding day 🙂Erika & Steven
Amazing group of people. Our officiant, Jodi, was personable, charming and was truly interested in getting to know my husband and I before marrying us. Their business runs smoothly and efficiently. We couldn’t have been happier with our wedding.Alison & Sean
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
Thank you for your warm, calm energy and eloquent words, Shalom! You were perfect!Shannon & Kenneth
The day was amazing! We had the best experience with Rhona; she was personable and kind. She had the sweetest and calmest voice. We had to make a quick change and she was able to do so in a short time, very accommodating. Thank you so much Rhona and to the team at Young Hip & Married! 🙂
Kristen, thank you so much for officiating our marriage ceremony! You were fantastic and we really appreciated your patience and support through the day! We could not have asked for a better officiantJordon & Cassandra
We were in a rush and these guys made the process seamless. Smooth and fast which is what we were after. Thank you and your team for the amazing help and service.Michael & Aoda
Young Hip and Married is an excellent marriage service. They took care of us from the beginning and they were super nice and very attentive. We are a gay couple who wanted a simple wedding but in a very special way and Young Hip and Married went the extra mile.P & A
I highly recommend the Young Hip and Married team. We chose to do the elopement package with the hour of photography. Shawn was our officiant and Erica was our photographer. Both were very professional and did an excellent job!Brianna & Antony
Shawn was our officiant for our wedding (March 2017). Not only was he a joy to work with, he really helped us make our ceremony unique. Since the wedding, I’ve had tons of people comment on how amazing and captivating he truly was. Would definitely recommend him!Kengie Law
Absolutely Incredible! Rebecca (our organizer) was always so personable and very quick to respond! Emily Nicole our photographer, was indispensably helpful and so kind. And our Officiant Beth Carlson-Malena was so helpful before the wedding, worked with us on everything, made everything very easy going and intimate. We had the most wonderful wedding and we are so grateful to Young Hip & Married! Cannot recommend enough!
AWESOME! My husband and I chose their officiant Jonathan Manafo to perform our ceremony and we cannot say enough about what a gem of a human he is! We totally clicked with him right off the bat and really enjoyed getting to know him in the lead up to our big day. He did such a great job capturing our story to share with our friends and family, and really made the ceremony fun, breezy, funny and super special / unique to us. The whole experience absolutely rocked. Thanks again Jonathan!N & A
We had the most amazing experience with Peter La Grand. We had actually booked a different officiant who canceled just under 3 weeks before our wedding. Peter stepped in at that point and got to know our story and who we are so well in such a short time. We told him we wanted our ceremony to be beautiful, comfortable, personal, and to have some humour, and it was exactly that. We felt like a friend was marrying us. Several guests commented on how great Peter was and asked how we found him – many people assumed we already knew him! Thank you so much Peter, our ceremony was a huge highlight of our wedding day, we will treasure it forever and it could not have been better!Lea & Mitchell
We want to pass along a sincere thank you to YHM & especially, Jonathan, for making our day perfect. Jonathan delivered a ceremony that was eloquent, personable, and jovial. He was able to mix seriousness with humour and without knowing the guests in attendance, made them feel like he knew us for years. We were so pleased with his performance and cannot thank him enough for being a part of our big day.Chris & Samantha
We eloped, which means planning/stress was already minimal compared to your ‘typical’/average wedding but it was SO nice to have Young Hip & Married involved in planning our day. Our officiant, Jane, was amazing. Professional, friendly and personable. I liked the idea that YH&M has many officiants so if yours is suddenly ill or has an emergency and cant attend they’ve got a roster of others to swoop in and cover for you! We did photography through YH&M as well which was a breeze to have that organized through them as well! I’ve recommended YH&M to many friend who are interested in a small wedding, and I will continue to recommend them!Ally + Phillip
Thank you so much for being part of our wedding day! We had the most amazing time and are so grateful for Young Hip and Married because we had such a great experience. There were a lot of things to be nervous about after so much anticipation, but I couldn’t have asked for a better day!Rose & Marlon
I couldn’t be happier with the services we received. Our officiant was amazing and so thorough with us considering we were getting married out of province, and the initial reach out (I guess you could call that our coordinator/customer service rep) was phenomenal in getting us the perfect officiant. 100/10 would recommend this company to everyone I know who is getting married/eloping.Selina & Daniel
Bobbi was so much fun to work with! Warm and outgoing, she helped us work through some of the “awkward stuff” during our first meeting, and once we were comfortable it was a breeze finalizing the details. She personalized our wedding ceremony and gave us tips for our vows, checking in during the weeks leading up to make sure everything was perfect. We got feedback from our guests that her speaking style really suited the feel we were going for: the ceremony was full of laughs and was a great start to the celebrations. Dealing with Young, Hip & Married in general (mostly Tara, who handled some admin work!) was also a pleasure
Great service, we had Beth as our wedding officiant and she is awesome! Highly recommend.Trisha & Dulguun
Oh my goodness, thank you so so much for Saturday. We are still glowing from the beautiful ceremony. Everyone always said how fast it would go by in a blur, but I remember every single moment. It was amazing. You were amazing from start to finish of the process. I will absolutely recommend you to anyone getting married!! Wishing you the best and sending our love & endless thanks.Emilie & Ryan
We booked a helicopter elopement package with Young Hip & Married and were very happy with their services. We especially loved our officiant, Beth. Beth was very responsive and helpful before the wedding when the ceremony wording was being prepared. On the wedding day, she was early and well prepared. We didn’t do our own vows and I thought that what she wrote captured us perfectly. She made us feel very at ease during the ceremony. The office staff was also great and always responded to my questions very quickly.Stephanie
YH&M were wonderful to work with from start to finish. Charlie, our officiant, is a stellar human being and I cannot recommend her enough. She was a joy to speak with through email, and when we met in person as she showed up to officiate our wedding, it was a natural connection- as if she’d been a friend of ours for years, somehow!
Affordable, professional, courteous, respectful, and I N C L U S I V E!!!!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the work Charlie and the YH&M team did for us.Eden & Adrian
- YH&M where incredible to work with! Everybody who attended our wedding was raving about the ceremony and how much of us and our personalities was put into it. I couldn’t recommend them enough!Jeff & Jen
Easy to work with and amazing ceremony that worked for us perfectly!Marina & Ross
The team at YH&M were very helpful and accommodating as we planned our elopement. They made every effort to connect us with a queer officiant to give our ceremony some extra magic and did they ever deliver!
Curt Allison personalized our ceremony to reflect our relationship and we will forever remember the love and care that he brought to our special day. John Bello was our photographer and was just as fantastic to share our day with. He captured some incredibly breathtaking photos that we will cherish forever. We could not have asked for a better ceremony and we are grateful for the YH&M team in making that happen for us!Jamie & Laura
We had the best intimate elopement wedding last Jan 8, 2021. My wife and I planned it in less than 2 weeks. We managed to pull it off perfectly with the help of YHMW, especially Shawn and Erica, the best duo. We and our family had the best day! 🙂 thank you again!Karl & Carlen
My husband and I were recommended to check out Young, Hip & Married for our officiant services and we had a great experience. From the moment we met Shawn, we knew that we could trust him to be nothing but perfect for our day and he absolutely was. We have been married now for three weeks and our guests are still talking about how fabulous the ceremony was and how much a part of it they felt they were. We highly recommend Young Hip & Married to all future couples; you won’t be disappointed!Ashley Douglas
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 last-minute booked Randy as our officiant as we were not happy with our lack of connection with our previous officiant. It was one of the best decisions we made with our wedding. It was personal, intimate, and so connected throughout. Our guests LOVED how unique our ceremony was and I will forever recommend them. Some may scoff at the price tag, but it is *SO* worth it. If you think about it, the ceremony is the most important part of a wedding. Why cut corners with that aspect of your big day? I have been re-watching my ceremony video and am SO happy with it. Young Hip and Married is AMAZING!Hannah & Lindsay
The team, starting from the enquiry till the marriage, addressed all of our queries and concerns so personally, which really makes you feel very comfortable in a situation when you are making one of the biggest life decisions. These people are great people and they know what they do and the importance of such events. We opted for their elopement plan and that was exactly what we expected and, in fact, more than that. We were very nervous and unsure how things would go but they took care of everything so well. Our initial contact was Rebecca and she answered all of our queries so well and made us feel very comfortable that we were with the right people. When it came to the final day, we met Kadee as our officiant and in a simple word I can say she is excellent.
Kadee was our officiant. She helped us in finalizing the venue and we chose Third Beach and Stanley Park. She also asked two ladies at the beach to be witnesses for our ceremony. The company communicated very well and made us feel very comfortable throughout the process. They got back to us for our queries very fast. Thank you Young Hip and Married for being a part of our new journey, especially Rebecca and Kadee 🙂Ravi & Gurveer
We have nothing but kind words about our experience with Young Hip & Married. From the moment we met with Shawn, the process was seamless. Shawn was so helpful guiding us through the ceremony process, from the number of edits to assisting with the vows and how the ceremony should run. We don’t know how we would have done it without him. He customized the ceremony and it really felt like he had known us for forever. We had so many comments on how great and unique our ceremony was!! Going into a wedding, the ceremony is the most memorable part for the bride and groom and Shawn did everything to make us feel comfortable and at ease standing in front of 150 people. I would recommend Shawn and Young Hip & Married to anyone who is looking for an officiant. A million thanks!Sarah & Marc
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
Cory Dueck was amazing! We are so happy we chose him. Everybody liked him and our ceremony went exactly as I imagined.S Saniee
Randy was amazing. Very professional, funny, and made for a heartfelt yet un-cheesy ceremony. YH&M was very easy to work with, prompt with our last minute booking, and very fairly priced. I recommend their services to any.Krista Brittner
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
Randy Hamm was the officiant for our wedding and he was OUTSTANDING!! All of our guests raved about how good he was. He got everyone involved, and kept them entertained. If you are looking for an officiant that is unlike any other, Randy is your guy! The team at Young Hip & Married were very easy to correspond with (which isn’t always the case with wedding vendors, unfortunately).
Randy gave us the ceremony that we were dreaming of. He kept it light hearted and very personalized. We didn’t want anything scripted. He was able to tell a story about US.
Thank you Randy! *round of applause*The Dinhs
Young Hip & Married came highly recommended after our friends had used them for their September wedding last year. We contacted them and had nothing but a great experience from day 1. Marilyn was extremely helpful in planning our ceremony and the day couldn’t have gone better! Highly recommend her or anyone else from Young Hip & Married – thanks for making our wedding memorable!Kristina Pinton
I would highly recommend choosing Shawn to officiate your wedding! He was so personable and relaxed, yet super professional at the same time; it’s clear he has done this many times before. I was especially grateful for this at our wedding rehearsal, where I was feeling a bit lost and nervous about our upcoming ceremony. Shawn came in and, in tandem with our week-of wedding coordinator (who he knew because he knows many people in this industry! Definitely a huge benefit.), totally took charge and told us exactly what we needed to do. I also appreciated Shawn’s words of encouragement, shared quietly with us in free moments, during the actual ceremony itself.
Speaking of the ceremony, Shawn delivered a heartfelt and nicely-written speech. He delivered it like a family friend- and several guests thought we’d known him for a long time. While Shawn provided the bulk of the writing, he encouraged us to change, add, or subtract anything we felt necessary. Although it is never a comfortable feeling being critical of a person’s work, my partner and I felt that Shawn truly wanted our honest feedback. And, as a result, people loved our ceremony and felt like it suited us perfectly.
The last thing I’d like to say is, Shawn is passionate about relationships and the people within them. We could tell from the outset that Shawn was a different personality type from either of us; but, just as you make friends who are different from you, it is absolutely possible to have the same thing in your wedding officiant. I didn’t know that until we met Shawn and decided that he would be a good match for us (and vice versa). We are so glad that we made the right choice!Scotti Gibson
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
Beth married us this Sept 8, 2018 and we couldn’t have been happier. The entire experience with Young Hip & Married was smooth and professional with the warm and personal touches we were looking for. Our officiant, Beth, was absolutely amazing! She stayed in contact with us through the whole process and wrote us the most touching ceremony. It was fun and sweet and everything we had hoped for! And although we didn’t meet until the ceremony, it was just like having an old friend there with us – inviting and comfortable! Our backyard, East Van, lesbian wedding was nothing short of extraordinary thanks to Beth and Young Hip & Married! We would recommend using them a thousand times over!!
Beth, we wanted to thank you so very much for giving us an absolutely beautiful ceremony and truly making our story come alive surrounded by friends and family. We were so pleased to work with you, every single step of the way was smooth and your warm and approachable nature made the ceremony all the more special!Elona & Michelle
- 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!Claire & Bodo
I went back and forth about hiring YH&M for quite a while. It is a lot of money to spend on an officiant. Beth ended up being so much more than I wanted. She was super attentive and paid attention to every detail. It really showed in our script. It was perfect. Everyone absolutely adored how personal our ceremony was. It made our vows that much more special as well. Thank you so much Beth for everything. I will recommend you and YH&M to everyone <3Cortni & Dillon
We chose the elopement package for our wedding; it was perfect and fun. Thank you so much Shawn and Erica!Katie Zaloga
We wanted to ensure a very intimate ceremony for our elopement, the plans for which came together very last minute. We were extremely impressed with the responsiveness, flexibility, and guidance we received every step of the process. We would highly recommend to anyone! Thank you for everything you did to make our special day so special.Kelly & Calyn
I highly recommend YHM! I want to send a huge thank you to Layne and Deanna for being so kind to us on our big day. You guys made us laugh, you were so easy to work with and we are so incredibly thankful to have found this company. YHM walked us through our vow training, they officiated our wedding AND they provided photography. I can’t recommend enough.Christina & Cole
Amazing. Working with Young Hip and Married was so simple, and Chris-Ann was so compatible with our laid back style. We had so much fun working with her, and she gave us such a lovely ceremony script. We thought we would write our own vows, but ultimately decided that what she gave us to work with was so lovely we didn’t even need to! We highly recommend this service.Allison & Dwayne
Jane was kind, lovely, and gave us a great outline for our vows which we felt very comfortable with. She was also available on short notice which we really appreciated!Anonymous
Our day was amazing and we couldn’t have been happier with our decision to have Shawn Miller from YH&M as our wedding Officiant. While home in Australia we found YH&M on the internet and put our trust in YH&M and especially Shawn for our special day while on holiday in Vancouver. The whole process was faultless and Shawn was so professional and fun right from our first meeting. He provided a wonderful suggestion for where to have our elopement ceremony and his delivery throughout the service was perfect! We could not be more grateful of Shawn for providing an enjoyable atmosphere and a day we will not forget, Thank you ShawnAnonymous
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
YH&M was recommended to us by a friend who used to be a photographer in the wedding business. I could not be more thankful that she pointed us in this direction! We worked directly with Shawn who was totally down to earth, connected with us immediately, and was the most helpful and gracious all the way up in preparing for our day! Our ceremony was AWESOME – Shawn spoke beautifully, he ensured our ceremony captured exactly us and helped our guests feel super engaged with the ceremony. We received LOTS of feedback from guests that they thoroughly enjoyed our ceremony – it set the tone for a wonderful love & fun-filled evening! GO WITH YH&M FOR YOUR WEDDING FOR SURE!!!Candice Coombes
My partner, James, and I are a blended family. Untraditional, 3 kids, met online, you know… I saw Shawn at a friend’s wedding and loved his demeanor and words and contacted YHM for our wedding. Shawn was booked but the person who emailed me back was helpful in guiding me to who was available and a good fit. I picked Marilyn. She was easy to talk to and met with us right away. She asked all about our lives, how we met, our kids, pets, where we lived, our goals and what we wanted. All with a smile and a lot of laughter! One of the things I really appreciated was that she talked me into writing vows. I said I was too shy and she said I would regret it and she would help me. She sent me tips and coached me. I did it! As you will see from the video, I did it, cracking voice and all. I am forever grateful. She was great during the ceremony, went with our craziness and danced, laughed, fist pumped and gave some thoughtful words. I had so many compliments and people wondering where she came from as they have never seen such a ceremony and I quote my uncle, “That was the most real, unpretentious wedding ceremony I’ve ever been to. It was so you.” Thank you, thank you.Alexis & James
Can’t thank our friends enough for recommending YH&M. Kristen was our officiant and she was super responsive to all our requests and helped put together the perfect ceremony for our small, intimate wedding. Her style and delivery were perfect for engaging everyone and making them feel a part of the ceremony and she managed to cope with all the little ad libs and laughter from me and my bride. Would definitely recommend both the company and Kristen; in fact I already did to one of our wedding party getting married next year.Martin & Yoyo Saunders
100% Recommend! They have all sorts of packages to suit everyone. They suggested the most amazing photographer- Bree Lion who we adore!!!! The celebrant who they picked for us was the nicest guy and who made us feel so comfortable. We are so happy with how everything went! Wouldn’t have changed a thing!Lana-J & Benjamin
We just wanted to reach out to you and thank you again for making our ceremony so special! It was above and beyond what we could have even imagined, and it was definitely a highlight of the day for us and our families! We really appreciated the amount of effort you put into the ceremony and meeting with us before.Leah & Patrick
Best ceremony ever. Highly recommend Mark. He made the ceremony very interesting and personal. We received a lot of compliments from the guests as well. – SaharSahar
Shawn officiated our wedding ceremony and we were blessed with his bright and positive energy, as well as the depth of feeling in his words. He shared from his heart and touched everyone in a way that made us feel very connected to each other and to the land on which we were married. We have so much gratitude for having Shawn and his beautiful wife Erica be a part of our special day – many thanks now and forever!Amanda
Shawn was our officiant for our wedding just this past September and he knocked our socks off. Our ceremony was just perfect all thanks to him; it was very heartfelt and full of humour – so totally us. He was very quick to respond to any of our questions or concerns & was very professional. Our guests felt he was so great and personable and we still get comments today on how amazing our ceremony was. He made us feel comfortable and had the best tips for our special day with all those wedding day jitters. If you’re looking for someone to ‘just get’ you and your partner and tailor your entire ceremony to fit you then you came to the right place. We 100% recommend the YH&M team! Thanks again Shawn, you definitely made our ceremony one to remember!Alissa & Corey
Kadee was our officiant and she was awesome. At our first meet, she asked a lot of questions and helped us figure out what we wanted for our ceremony. We wanted a short and simple service that was also special and very meaningful. She was very informative and patient as I had lots of questions. Super happy that we had her as a part of our special day. I highly recommend Young Hip and Married and Kadee!Linda & Stanislaw
We couldn’t have been happier with YH&M! Their customer service is amazing, they are very accommodating, and Shawn truly helped to put us at ease and create exactly the right ceremony for me and my now husband. Although we had a large wedding, our ceremony felt personal and intimate. I would recommend them to anyone!
Shawn, we can’t thank you enough for helping us create the perfect wedding. I must admit I was pretty nervous for the ceremony, but it ended up being both mine and Derek’s favourite part of the wedding (even better than the cake)! It was just beautiful and meant so much to us.Rebecca & Derek
Jane did an amazing job at our wedding! Even our friends who interacted with her found her very friendly.Althea & Seth
It was an absolutely perfect day in Vancouver and our officiant, Rob, was lovely. Young Hip and Married were very easy to work with and we appreciate the resources available as well. Thank you.Amy Molema
Young Hip and Married are lovely to work with. Their staff is friendly, professional, and most important – excited about weddings. Jodi married us in July. We met with her back in September and she came away from that meeting and crafted a ceremony that was perfectly us. We couldn’t be happier with our choice.Danielle & Scott
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 xoxHolly & Geoff
Great people to work with. Rebecca was really easy to communicate with. Jane was a great officiant and the photographer, John, was amazing. Highly recommend YH&M!!Christian & Silvana
My wife and I came across Hip, Young and Married via WeddingWire and we couldn’t be more pleased with the service. They offer multiple options of packages to help you prepare for the ceremony.
The staff is very friendly and engaged. Beth, our officiant, was amazing from the first zoom call all the way to the “I do’s”. Thank you!Nels & Manjit
We eloped with young hip & married! Rhona was our officiant and we were so happy with our experience. She calmed our nerves and made us feel comfortable while exchanging our vows. Her words and delivery were heartfelt. Would definitely recommend booking Rhona!Ellen & Travis
Shawn Miller crafted an amazing ceremony for my wife and I and he was incredible to work with throughout the entire process!Travis Harrison
From the prompt, personal response after our first inquiry about an elopement package to the ceremony itself, Young Hip & Married knocked it out of the park with the Elopement Plus package. We had the absolute pleasure of having Beth officiate our ceremony. She listened to our story and turned it into beautiful, touching verses. It was everything we could have asked for and fit us perfectly.Emily & Corey
Our experience with Young Hip and Married was amazing. We had the pleasure of working alongside Denise. She helped us create a beautiful personalized ceremony. She was very quick to answer any questions and always available to chat when needed. All of our guests loved how personalized and meaningful this ceremony was. We highly recommend using Young Hip and Married for your wedding!Justine & Matt
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
We are so grateful we came across Young Hip & Married as we were planning our wedding. We hired Denise as our officiant and from the first time we met her we knew we had made the right choice! Everything was absolutely perfect. She was warm, perceptive, and thoughtful in everything she prepared – from readings, to our request for a Scottish handfasting, to our vows. We’ve had so many family and friends comment to us that it was one of the most personal and meaningful ceremonies they’ve witnessed – and we feel the same! Thank you SO much Denise for helping us create meaningful memories as we start our marriage together 🙂Aliez & Jeff
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
Amazing. From start to finish it was exactly what we were looking for. Erica and Shawn were fun professional, knowledgeable and a dream to work with. Worth every penny and a memory to last. Did I mention we were married in a helicopter orbiting above Vancouver? Yep, they made that happen. Thank you very much you cooky kids; you did awesome.Sean
The whole experience from start to finish was amazing! My wife and I booked in our zoom pre call with Jane and instantly knew she would be our officiant. After our pre zoom call, Jane was very professional and prompt with helping script the ceremony! On the day of the wedding, Jane was nothing less than amazing! A lot of our wedding guests even stated that Jane was the best officiant they’ve seen! If you’re on the fence with picking officiants, Young Hip & Married is the way to go!!Jeff & Morgan
- We had the most amazing experience using YH&M for our backyard wedding. We got our officiant (Jane) and our wedding photographer (Erica Miller) through them and both were beyond amazing. The whole experience dealing with the team leading up to the event was so organized and relaxed; they would always reach out with ample notice to make sure things were on track and sorted which was really helpful when we were dealing with 10+ vendors without a coordinator.Our officiant Jane was amazing. Exactly the type of ceremony and relaxed vibe that we wanted; our guests loved the ceremony as well. It was probably one of my favourite parts of the wedding which I hadn’t expected.Erica Miller was an absolute joy to work with as well. We got a (very reasonable) package that included an engagement shoot, wedding day (2 photographers), and wedding book. Our engagement shoot was so much fun and the photos turned out even better than expected. We haven’t received the wedding photos yet but I have no doubt they will be amazing. Erica was just so much fun to have around! Our guests also commented on how fantastic she was.Do yourself a favour and book with YH&M! You will not regret it!Caitlin & Owain
There was so much excitement and high energy right before the ceremony and it was Shawn’s impromptu introduction that really brought us into the moment, setting the soulful intention and deep connected feeling for our ceremony.Seriously, we can’t say enough good things about Shawn, Erica, and the YH&M team. We are so happy that they were a part of our joy and we highly recommend them to anyone looking for a unique and personal wedding experience.Kate
One the best choices made as part of our wedding planning process. Erika. Is. AMAZING! Super friendly and charismatic! We opted for the Custom and Creative Ceremony option and, while it was a bit on the pricey side, it was worth every penny with many of our guests saying they loved the ceremony as it was unique and different from so many weddings they have attended in the past.Don & Rebecca
Shawn was so helpful and encouraging and kind, which helped so much because we were both pretty nervous. He helped us make our ceremony so unique and specific to us as a couple, and many guests complimented us for not going with a traditional or religious ceremony. He kept both of us and all of our guests engaged in the ceremony and the reason we were there. Thank you, Shawn! We’ll remember you forever!Krystal
Our experience with Young Hip & Married was nothing short of perfect! We wanted to keep our special day simple and carefree and YH&M ensured just that. Everything from location suggestions to an absolutely amazing officiant was exactly what we envisioned. I would highly recommend YH&M to couples who want to keep their elopement simple and stress-free! Thanks for everything YH&M team! You made our special day unforgettable!Tiffany & Adam
Young Hip and Married was the icing on the cake for our day – they made it simple yet special from the first time I emailed them to the day of the ceremony! Would highly recommended them to anyone!Emma & Braeden
- Faye & Zach
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
What a wonderful experience we had with Young Hip & Married! My husband and I were married this September 2018 and Randy Hamm was our officiant. What a joy to have Randy! He was 100% personable, and really made the cermony personable to us. He guided us the whole way through, giving us ideas for readings, helping us with our vows and even contacting important family and friends to get further insight into us as a couple. He truly was the best! Thank you!!Ryan & Courtney
- To make this easier for us to write out I’ve listed the ways you were awesome.1) You were so accommodating when we were waiting for a few people who were running late that we really wanted to be there before we got started.2) You helped to calm me down when I was feeling very anxious before the ceremony started.3) You delivered an extremely personal and touching ceremony that had our family and friends laughing, crying, and completely immersed in the ceremony.4) You weren’t thrown off by the 100 (not actually 100) fire trucks that decided to crash our pre ceremony.5) You were very kind and friendly to our friends and family before, during, and after the ceremony.6) You were HILARIOUS. Excellent delivery of our strange friend’s jokes.7) You helped us ensure things were set up for an easy transition to signing the documents when we were too overwhelmed to pay attention to our surroundings.8) You accommodated, very willingly, our unusual wedding requests even though we didn’t follow “the template”.9) You were very organized during the ceremony planning and made the process very easy on our side, as well as fun.10) You were the BEST officiant we have ever come across and could not be happier that it was for our wedding 🙂Amber
Amazing service ! The best part was at about 11 pm I told him he can go home and he said he still wants to keep the dancers going that’s commitment!Nikki & Shayne
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 used Young Hip & Married for our wedding and couldn’t be happier with the service they provided. Erika worked with us to tailor our ceremony to be personal, funny, and engaging. We won’t need to hire them again, but anyone looking for a company that puts you in the spotlight at your wedding, and does so with care and attention, then look no further!Erika, we’re still on cloud nine from it all! It couldn’t have gone any better and we’re still feeling all the love from our family and friends 🙂Thank you so much for an awesome ceremony! The words, delivery, planning, everything was spot on and really made us feel like we were part of something special.Paul & Keara
Shawn Miller was our marriage officiant this past weekend. He was communicative, personable, and professional. For our wedding ceremony, he created a unique and authentic ceremony that truly represented us. We received compliments from our family and friends! If you’re looking for a marriage officiant, I recommend Shawn at Young Hip & Married for your wedding.Batya Wan
Lise did a fantastic job for us. Our celebration was small and unique. She met with us to get to know us in advance, had us fill in a questionnaire to get more detail and put together a beautiful ceremony that was warm and loving. Several of our guests mentioned it was the nicest ceremony they had ever been to. Lise has many talents including being a dance instructor so we asked her to stay to do a little lesson with the group and it got everyone up out of their chairs and dancing and laughing and we all had a wonderful time!!Carrie & Vern
- I wanted to write a little note to thank Young, Hip and Married (and especially our officiant Mark) for providing us with the most perfect officiant experience possible. Mark exceeded our expectations! He was funny, approachable, professional, and overall just a pleasure to work with. We loved hearing our story and so did our family and friends. Almost everyone asked us who he was and how we chose him – including our photographers.
We got married at Cave Spring Vineyard (through Inn on the Twenty), and I think every wedding ever performed here has had a particular local officiant (who I’m sure is also very good). In the weeks leading up to our wedding, the venue, our photographer, the florist, and pretty much anyone else who is familiar with this venue expressed shock at the fact that we weren’t going with the status quo. Afterwards though, all of these people approached us for information on Young, Hip and Married. Our photographers said ours was the best wedding ceremony they have ever seen.
Thank you again YH&M and especially Mark for making our day unique and unforgettable! We will be recommending you to anyone and everyone we know!!Brianna
We had Cory and he was such a delight. As a couple coming from two seperate countries we didn’t have a lot of time to organize our wedding and Cory was just brilliant! He helped us out with vows and the order of the ceremony, told us where to pick up our marriage license and all the nitty gritty (honestly my husband and i had absolutely no clue haha) He was amazing on the day, so friendly, he came to check on us both to make sure we felt prepared and never once did the smile fade from his face. He was perfect, really delivered a ceremony catered completely to us. Everyone commented after how wonderful he had been and i know when they take the plunge they’ll all be asking how to get in contact with Cory. Thanks Young, Hip & Married for a beautiful day!!!!Kylie
Awesome company, they set up everything for us and even had a back up plan ready when we couldn’t do our helicopter elopement like we originally had planned because of weather!Mandy & Michael
- Thank you so much for giving us a perfect oath ceremony. Your draft of the marriage proposal is beautiful and warm. We are very moved and agree with you that marriage is to face all kinds of difficulties and happiness together in the future. Thank you again for this wonderful memory.Justin & Sherry
Great to work worth! They came through on such short notcie and made our day so special! Highly recommended 🙂Angela
Jane was great and followed through even with the challenges of covid. We appreciated her working with us to find a solution that allowed us to keep our special day. Highly recommend this team.Jen & Craig
In a pinch to find an officiant in Vancouver (we thought wrongly we could do city hall), YH&M came through at the last minute and in the midst of the Christmas holiday. Kadee was fantastic–responsive, friendly and adaptable to our quirks.Sara D
Young Hip and Married made our special day an amazing one! We were to be wed on May 30, 2020, but Covid hit and all was cancelled. This year we were going to get married no matter what! So May the fourth be with you 2021 was our day in the park with some family and the rest is bliss. Thank you YH&MAdam & Shawna
Made getting married so memorable and easy. Highly recommend!Christie & James
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 are so happy we had Young Hip & Married for our wedding! Lani was our officiant and she was beyond amazing! We had a lovely first meeting and she really took the time to get to know us. She helped us with writing our vows and gave us lots of great suggestions for the wedding. The ceremony was unique and really personal, and we wouldn’t have changed a thing! We would definitely recommend YH&M to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding!Mariel
We couldn’t be happier to have chosen Young Hip & Married for our wedding. Jef Young was our officiant and the ceremony was absolutely beautiful. We told Jef we wanted a traditional ceremony with elements of fun/meaningful, elegant/playful and sacred/frisky. We had all of these plus more. Jef also read some of the lovely bible verses we sent him. My family was really touched and we all ended up shedding some tears as the memorable words were read. We had the elopement package since our wedding only had me and my groom along with six family members. Our wedding, especially the ceremony was everything we wanted and was absolutely perfect.Sam
We could not have asked for a better experience with Bobbi from Young Hip & Married. As soon as we met her, we immediately felt so comfortable with her & didn’t even meet with any other officiants; we just booked her right away.
Bobbi made the ceremony really easy; we had a microphone glitch & she totally rocked it, making it more relaxed for everyone there. I know that I am probably biased since it was our wedding, but I’ve never been to a wedding ceremony that was so relaxed & with so many laughs, thanks to Bobbi. We had so many compliments afterwards telling us what an amazing job they thought that she did. Thanks Bobbi!! 🙂Alexandra Coburn
We wanted to say thank you very much again for being part of our wedding. What you said was just perfect and despite the very difficult time you and your family have to go through right now, you were there, in a positive and warm spirit, which we more than just appreciated.Angela & Roman
As a company, Young Hip and Married have a quick response time and excellent communication. We opted for the Rockin’ Wedding package which was reasonably priced and really comprehensive. Kadee, our officiant, was wonderful. She got to know us, and wrote and delivered a wonderful service that felt true to our relationship. She was professional, organized, communicative, and fun and we feel lucky to have had her marry us!Matina & Kit
We will look back on our wedding ceremony with gigantic smiles, largely thanks to our wedding officiant and cool guy, Terry Shea. We had a short, relaxed and playful ceremony, which Terry easily balanced with kind words, wise phrases and a bit of tradition – it was absolutely beautiful. Terry is very thoughtful and takes the time to get to know you as a couple but also as a family. He is also patient, organized, and genuine. We love Terry and you will too!!!
Young, Hip and Married is also a great company. They checked-in on us regularly (but not too often) to make sure things were running smoothly and are a super nice and friendly bunch!
High Fives all around!Anonymous
Our officiant Peter La Grand was professional, kind, and enthusiastic about our super tiny ceremony in West Van! He gave us suggestions for where to do our ceremony and was willing to scale some rocks for the perfect spot! Great experience overall.Sydney & Carlos
Young Hip & Married has a fantastic team of people who truly care about the couples that they work with. My communication with Jackie-Deane was always fast and helpful despite ongoing uncertainties due to the pandemic. And it was such a pleasure having Jane be a part of the most important moment of our lives. One of my best friends married us, but Jane was there to oversee the signing of the certificate and she is a genuine and beautiful person who I was so glad to have for that very special moment.Cherlyn & Casey
10/10✨ Shawn was our officiant for our May 16th 2021 wedding. The energy he brought to our day made it that much more special. He made us both feel so important and our union one of a kind. Shawn made the whole experience run very smoothly, from our very first emails exchanged, to the moment we signed our marriage license. His Wedding Vows Course provides a lot of guidance and helps build confidence in creating perfectly balanced vows. Thank you so much Shawn!Joe & Becca
Wonderful experience! Our officiant was lovely. She took the time to determine exactly what we were looking for and did a great job of information gathering. The speech was heartfelt and genuine and everyone really enjoyed themselves. Excellent pacing and perfect delivery.Andrew & Amy
Shawn and Erica were wonderful! Erica captured so many wonderful shots of our special day and stayed overtime to get our requests met! Shawn was professional and good-humoured throughout, and made our special day a little less stressful! Thanks so much guys!Josann & Kaid
I was so happy with the customer service and our officiant all the way through the process with YH&M. Jackie-Deane was my first contact. She was very personable, had great tips and extra information, and helped me find the perfect officiant. I made rather last minute plans for an unusual evening ceremony and wasn’t sure how I’d find an officiant. I found YHM online and after my first contact I was confident that I would be taken care of. Everything was handled very professionally, efficiently and personably. I haven’t done much online sourcing for services and was very pleasantly surprised to find that it could feel personal.
Our officiant was Beth Carlson-Malena. She was fabulous in every way: answering all of our questions, provided helpful tips (including excellent YH&M tips for writing vows) and reminders, and enthusiastically hopping on board and guiding our quirky wedding ceremony. Couldn’t be happier with our choice. I would highly recommend YH&M for wedding assistance. A personalized, supportive and easy solution to challenging event planning.Glenda & Christopher
Our officiant, Beth, was amazing!! She told our love story so beautifully and with humor and warmth! Everyone after our wedding said how incredible our officiant was that it was the most romantic and best ceremony they had ever attended! Thanks YH&M!Suzanne Miller
My wife and I hired Kadee from Young Hip & Married after witnessing her in action as the officiant for two friends of ours during simpler pre-pandemic days. Throughout the past year and a half of scheduling, planning, rescheduling, planning more, Kadee was nothing short of amazing! When the wedding day finally came, she had prepared the most true-to-us script, better than we ever could have hoped for. Without a doubt, we’d recommend Young Hip & Married, and specifically our Rockstar officiant, Kadee to anybody looking for a perfect, personalized ceremony. After all the uncertainty this past year, our little wedding ceremony was an experience we’ll cherish. Thanks so much!!Bryan & Lisa
We had the pleasure of being married by Shawn Miller. He created a unique ceremony for our family as we were blending ours and were including our five children in our ceremony! He took the time to get to know each of us personally and realized that we had a very unique situation and went out of his way to make our day extremely special, and for that we are forever grateful. 🙂 The special flower ceremony that he created for us to include made each of the children feel special and unique and helped unite us as a family. We loved our day …. it was perfect. xo
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
Peter was an incredible officiant. We decided to have a small, socially distanced ceremony in our backyard and Peter was fantastic about social distancing protocol to keep everyone safe. He gave us the ability to make the ceremony ours, without having to do too much thinking on our own – that was much appreciated given all the other wedding details we were busy with! I would highly recommend Peter – he knew just what to say, and when. Thank you to him and the entire Young Hip & Married team!Sarena & Vassily
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
Thank you for making the day exactly how we wanted! Your team of planners, officiants, and photographers are amazing.Chelanne & Chris
Thank you very much, Lauren. You made us feel welcome and your warm, friendly professionalism made things easy. So nice to see you again, and to have you be part of this important day in our lives. Thanks again for everything!Angus & Daichan
We got married on August 25th, 2017 and both me and my now husband are not huge attention/ crowd people and the ceremony was the biggest area of anxiety for us. I came across Young Hip & Married and read Cory’s page and we both knew we needed to meet him!
When we met, right away I had a great feeling and Cory was so welcoming and calming and put so many of our questions and concerns at ease.
He was amazing helping us put our vows together and prepping us for the most important day of our lives.
The day of our wedding Cory was AMAZING. He spent time with Kyle and myself making sure we were ready and that we knew everything that was going to happen so we felt comfortable.
The ceremony felt like someone who knew us for years was speaking to us and walking us through it, everything felt so natural and meant to be and that was due to the relationship we had formed with Cory over the months leading up to our wedding.
Everyone says to me now, “Your wedding was beautiful and your officiant was incredible – one of the best ceremonies I have ever witnessed.”
Thank you, Cory!
I can’t wait for our 10 year vow renewal so we can have Cory come and do that as well!!!!Jenifer & Kyle Bramhoff
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
We had the pleasure of having Stephen as our officiant. He enthusiastically agreed to our adventure mountaintop elopement idea and was easy-going through all the last minute location and weather uncertainties. He prepared the perfect ceremony for us; joyous, genuine, and heartfelt.
Our two witnesses felt he was incredibly personable and authentic too. We loved his warm and vibrant energy. He made all of us feel so comfortable on the hike up. Stephen even included my guests’ names and some snippets of our personal stories that he heard on the way up into the ceremony. It was more magical than I ever imagined. I could not have hoped for a better human than Stephen to officiate our wedding and share our love story with.Tiffany & Russell
Coco and I just wanted to say thank you again for being a part of the wedding and helping to make it such a success. We had so much great feedback about the whole wedding; it was a great night. You did an awesome job of being in the moment and helping us through the day.David & Coco
Thank you so much for everything you helped us with, the warm vibes and…just everything. You made the process so easy for us and we definitely needed the help with everything else going on. We got so many comments on how thoughtful and genuine the ceremony was, and you were a huge part of that.Lisha & Richard
We had the joy of having Beth as our officiant this past weekend. By far her ceremony was the most talked about part of our day. She had us all laughing, crying and feeling all the love. Perfection ❤Jessica & Brian
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 lovely message and kind words during the ceremony. We absolutely loved our wedding and a huge part of that is how awesome and cool you are. We’ve greatly enjoyed getting to know you and can’t thank you enough for helping us create a beautiful memory that we can reflect back on often 🙂Hopefully we’ll be seeing you soon (a lot of our newly engaged friends have been asking about you)!!Mackenzie & Anthony
Young, Hip and Married made it so easy for us to plan our day. Chet was out officiant and he was the perfect piece of the puzzle to set our nerves at ease. We couldn’t be happier with the way things turned out on our special day. Thank you so much
It was a pleasure working with Jane and having her officiate our wedding. She has a calming presence which put us at ease, making it much easier to say our vows. We loved her words and would definitely recommend her.Kajal & Ian
Loved working with YHM. From the first interaction through many wedding postponements due to the pandemic, they were so flexible with us. Jonathan was our officiant and he was awesome. Funny, laid back and just so easy to work with. We clicked right away and he took the time to get to know us (note we did interview/speak with two or three other officiants outside of YHM that we did not feel the same connection with). Jonathan is so passionate about his work and invested in his couples! We initially booked the Rocking Wedding package for our original wedding date of May 16, 2020 but due to the pandemic, we were able to downgrade to the Elopement Package with the difference in cost returned to us. We ended up getting married at our home this May 2021 in front of 4 guests. YHM was very accommodating as was Jonathan through our entire process! Can’t say thank you enough!!Olivia & Leslie
We had the pleasure of having Shawn as our officiant for our ceremony. From the start, our experience with YH&M has been top notch. After our initial conversation over the phone, Shawn sent us a personalized greeting video to introduce himself and give us more information on the process. This gesture blew us away. After that, Shawn worked with us on the draft for our ceremony up until the week of the wedding. On the wedding day, Shawn showed up early and helped us quickly go through the steps for the ceremony (we did not have him at our rehearsal). The ceremony went amazing. Shawn helped guests (and the bridal party) ease into the ceremony with a fun ice breaker which really set the tone (another WOW factor). The ceremony went flawlessly: not too long, not too short, guests were engaged, people laughed, people cried. After the ceremony, we had countless guests tell us how great Shawn was. We would definitely recommend YH&M to any couple who are looking for an officiant for their ceremony. YH&M is a bit pricier than what you would normally expect to pay but they are well worth the money. The ceremony couldn’t have gone any better! Thanks YH&M and Shawn!!Thomas & Holly
My wife and I had a fantastic helicopter wedding. We highly recommended!Fei & Jie
We are so happy that we chose Young Hip & Married to be a part of our wedding! Stevan was just great all the way from our initial meeting to the end of our big day. We got countless positive comments from our guests, complimenting his demeanor and delivery during the ceremony. He was even willing to go the extra mile and say a few words in a foreign language so that all our guests felt included. Clint was a great photographer to work with and was more than generous with his time and in the final photos, which are stunning and were sent to us only a few days after the ceremony! Stevan and Clint were highlights of the day that stood out to our guests, and as the couple getting married we really appreciated their calm and reassuring presence, which helped keep tensions low and alleviate a lot of potential stress. Highly recommended!Brady & Olivia
We had the most amazing officiant! Jason was thorough, accommodating and kept us loose throughout the rehearsal and our big day! I’d recommend Young Hip & Married to any couple and couldn’t imagine our day without them!Christina & Tim
So happy we left this part of our wedding in your organized hands. And Curt was wonderful, thoughtful, warm and personable as our officiant. Thanks again to your team.Deneen & Mark
HIGHLY recommend using YHM for your big day ! We fortunately got the dynamic duo! We had Shawn as our officiant and his wife Erica as our photographer. The ceremony went flawlessly as Shawn went above and beyond for us and made sure everyone stood in the right place so my photographer could get the best photos. Shawn told our love story perfectly! As for Erica, well.. I have had MULTIPLE companies approach me wanting to post/use our wedding photos because they turned out that good. Erica captured the day perfectly, she understood THE VIBE. I swoon over my wedding album and still look at it 3x a day. YHM was extremely easy to work with, from the first email I sent everything just fell into place for us without any headache. Very well organized company!Richelle & Matthew
Jane from Young, Hip and Married was an absolute dream to work with. She did such an incredible job and we are so happy with how our ceremony turned out. She was so good that we even had family come up to us asking if we knew her – she made it that personal and intimate. 10/10!Carly & Justin
Jane, thank you very much for being there for us. We were very satisfied with our little ceremony. Everything was just what we imagined. Thanks again for your efforts!Lucy & Roy
Thanks so much for your help on Saturday! We had a great time, and we had multiple people tell us how great the ceremony was specifically and I think people really enjoyed how you were able to make it a little bit more interactive. I personally really enjoyed when everyone collectively came together for the “Pronounce you husband and wife.”Stephanie & Spencer
Young Hip & Married were absolutely fantastic! We wanted to have a personalized ceremony without the added pressure of writing our own vows so we worked with Jason Frizzell and created the most awesome “ultimate re-up” vows. Jason also suggested adding a poem about love and dogs since our two Great Danes were part of our wedding party. It couldn’t have been more perfect! Thank you so much for making our day so much more special!Dana & Alex
We chose Young Hip & Married based on reviews and we are so happy that we did! From the beginning, they were so amazing to deal with. Erika was our officiant and she exceeded our expectations in every way possible. She gave us the exact ceremony we wanted which included our guests, giving thanks to our parents and was all about us. Erika was in constant contact with us from the very beginning. She was friendly, prompt with her responses and helped us through the entire process. We have had so many people come to us saying they have never seen a ceremony like ours and that Erika was amazing. Thank you so much Young Hip & Married, and an even bigger thanks to Erika for giving us the best ceremony we could have asked for!!Kendrianne
Our wedding was truly an amazing and very romantic experience for us. Just as we had imagined and even more. We appreciated and enjoyed every minute of it and it will always be in our hearts!
We thank you so much for guiding and supporting us all the way from the beginning with our thoughts and ideas for the ceremony. You were very present and we felt very secure in you leading the ceremony.
We are glad that we met you before the ceremony and got to know you. We are also glad you mingled with Simon and our friends before the ceremony. That meant a lot to us
Thank you so much Kristen! We will always remember you being a part of our very beautiful, important and romantic day. We hope our paths will cross again some day ….Tina & Simon
Shawn was amazing! He was so charismatic and easy to talk to about our ceremony. Shawn helped guide us through what we believed to be the most anxious part of the day and honestly it became not only the funniest but most memorable. (To be fair I think Shawn won’t forget this day either!) He made me and my now hubby calm and made us laugh which is exactly what we wanted – he was there every step of the way, throughout the process of conjuring up the ceremony tweaking it here and there, making it ours. Many of our guests noted his wit and personality and how he made the day fun and special and that they have never been to a ceremony like ours before stating it was one of the best ones they have been to. It was the best choice to hire Young Hip and Married and we would highly recommend this company to anyone. 11 out of 10 for sure!Christine & Jayson
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
We had an amazing experience with YH&M who were the officiants for our ceremony. When we were at the very early stages of planning our wedding we had come across the YH&M team and immediately knew that we wanted them to be a part of our special day. We were so happy when the planners that found (Pop Up Weddings) used them as the officiants for the ceremonies that they organize. Shawn was so helpful from the very beginning and every step of the way even helping the groom with his boutonnière just before the ceremony! All of the correspondence we had with him was fun and made us even more excited! All of our guests raved to us about how great and perfect he was for our ceremony. We felt so at ease knowing we were in great hands. He was so supportive, professional, and welcoming. We will be recommending Shawn and his Young Hip and Married team to everyone! (Also, Shawn’s wife Erica is a fantastic photographer who we were so lucky to have capture the special moments of our day). Thank you for an unforgettable experience!The Carigrens
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
We absolutely adored the entire process of getting married, helped along by Young Hip & Married; specifically by Lani Brunn. Our ceremony was perfect, completely and 100% us, and yet we were surprised by the insight Lani used. She really knew our story. She listened to us and our dreams for our marriage, not only for the ceremony, and what she facilitated was perfect. Thank you for a wonderful experience.Jen & Mike
Chad and I recently got married and couldn’t have asked for a better officiant for our special day. Jef was easy to work with, answered our questions and calmed our nerves, keeping everything fun, but also very professional. We 100% recommend Young Hip and Married to any couple looking to tie the knot!Jill & Chad
Nathan and I were so happy to have Debbie officiate our wedding. We wanted something more on the simple side and right to the point, as neither of us is overly religious. We wanted it to be about us and our love for each other emphasized on the fact that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. Debbie gave us exactly what we were looking for. Working with her beforehand as a couple for the premarital meetings was wonderful, it was super easy going and we were extremely comfortable discussing our relationship with her. Debbie’s advice going into our wedding was perfect. She has such a warm and loving presence, we couldn’t imagine our day without her. Thanks again for everything!Kassandra
An exceptional company! We had a last minute elopement and were cared for above and beyond for the week before and the day of. They were quick to respond to any inquiries and provided all of the information we needed leading up to the ceremony. On the day of, we met Shawn, though it felt like we already knew him. Shawn included everything we had asked of him, while still guiding us through the ceremony with ease and comfort. We could not have asked for a better ceremony, and highly recommend Young Hip & Married.Megan Haliburton
My husband and I hired Shawn from Young Hip and Married to officiate our wedding this past August and are so glad we did! We had such an amazing experience working with Shawn. He has such a great positive energy and was so easy to work with. We loved how our personal love story was able to be shared with our guests and we received so many compliments on how enjoyable our ceremony was. Our sister and her husband to be were even lucky enough to hire Shawn for their wedding next year! It makes it so special to be able to have Shawn be a part of another wedding in the family and we can’t wait! We cannot say enough good things about Young Hip and Married. Thank you so much for officiating our wedding Shawn!! 🙂Darlene & Shane
Beth was awesome! She incorporated all our important milestones and memories. She knew it was a hard emotional day with the loss of two loved ones, but kept the ceremony light hearted and straight to the point. Highly recommend using her as your officiant!Parveen & Ashneel
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!Paige & Correy
We loved working with Young Hip & Married. Denise was so amazing to work with from our first phone call. She listened to what we wanted and provided help along the way. She was very responsive and helpful every step of the way. She made our ceremony feel so personal and special. I can’t thank her enough for her beautiful words and our dream wedding ceremony. I am so incredibly thankful for her!Ally & Daniel
Erika and the team at Young Hip and Married helped us make the most out of our Covid restricted wedding. Right from the start they helped us navigate what we could do and helped make our day special. Would definitely recommend 🙂Stephanie & Matthew
We had a great experience with Beth! She was very kind and professional. Additionally, her write up of us during our ceremony was fantastic! Thanks again Young, Hip & Married!Tara & John
10/10 would recommend! They were amazing with communicating and making things very simple. They were able to accommodate a same day rehearsal as well as make the vows exactly what we were looking for. We had Curt officiating and he was wonderful to work with. I would recommend for anyone.Erika & Niko
- Thanks for marrying us! Your words were beautiful and everything was perfect on our wedding day.We’re very happy with everyone that we had on our special day. And we feel lucky to found all of you guys. Officiant, photographer, videographer, coordinator, harpist, groomsmen and bridesmaids. We could have the perfect wedding all because of everybody. Thanks again!Hye Min Kim & Michael Choi
Amazing experience from beginning to end. We wanted an elopment package that would fit our budget and also be super special. My partner came across Young, Hip & Married and what they offered was perfect. We live in London and travelled to Vancouver to elope. Tara and Kadee were very helpful with answering our questions as ‘out of towners’ and made everything very easy, which was very much appreciated. We opted for the helicopter elopement and it was simply perfect. The weather was a bit rainy and windy that day but we managed to get to the riverbed location at the bottom of the mountain. I would not have changed a thing. Erica was so helpful on the day, coordinating between us and the pilot, and making the photos a fun and awesome experience Kadee was the perfect officiant, couldn’t have asked for better. It was the perfect ceremony, beautiful words and Kadee worked in a small change to the traditional vows for us to make it super personal.
Thank you so much Kadee, Erica and Tara for all your help and expertise, it really did result in the best day ever. Kadee and Erica were absolutely the best and made the day so special. Tara, the Office Goddess who helped us orchestrate the whole thing, was also fantastic. Amazing company, amazing ideas and super friendly and supportive. Cannot rate them high enough and would thoroughly recommend. Thank you for an amazing and unforgettable day!
I would highly recommend this company, the friendliest and most amazing people to work with.Katrina & Peter
- Robbie & Emma
It was such a pleasure to meet you Randy! Thank you so for such a wonderful elopement! You made our simple legal ceremony a fun and memorable experience! It was so nice to have a second Kits beach ceremony that was super low-key and less stressful than the actual day. We really appreciate you working with our spur of the moment schedule as well!
I would recommend Young Hip & Married for any wedding or elopement for sure!Tanya
Curt was an amazing officiant for our wedding! He was so easy to work with, and really took the time to personalize his speech to our story. He was also completely open and flexible with anything we wanted to add or adjust. Our guests absolutely raved about him and how perfect our ceremony was. We will be recommending Curt and the YHM team to any of our friends who get engaged in the future!!Brit
When planning our wedding we knew early on that we wanted to put a focus on the ceremony, and really have the opportunity to set the tone for the rest of the evening. Finding an officiant that did not just read out one of five set ceremonies was a huge deal, thankfully we found Young Hip & Married. We were able to customize the ceremony to engage our guests, instead of generic thoughts of love and marriage, we were able to share and laugh about how we met, talk about how we fell in love and really connect. Our officiant Shawn was so easy to work with, he was fun and engaging with us getting us ready for the big day. As well despite the fact he was always jumping from wedding to wedding when he was there helping us with our rehearsal and patiently waiting for late guests to arrive before we walked down the aisle he was always present and invested. The actual ceremony was wonderful, it could not have gone any better, it felt genuine and truly helped show our guests who we were as a couple. I have been told many times in the 4 weeks since our wedding by guests that they had never actually enjoyed a wedding ceremony that much, it is defiantly my favourite memory from the day! I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!! Thank you Shawn and Young Hip & Married.Alex & Kyle
Our wedding was small and simple. We loved how fast we arranged everything with Young Hip & Married. Jonathan, our officiant, was super cool and whole ceremony was amazing. Thank you so much.Lorita & Martin
Beth created an amazing ceremony for us that felt so personal and unique! She was very responsive and made us feel very much at ease – not to mention she trekked to our beach location in the rain – would highly recommend her!! Thank you for an amazing ceremony, Beth!!!Jackie & Eli
We were lucky enough to have Brian marry us for our BC summer wedding, Aug 2015. We were coming from Australia and wanted to have the right person for the job, but didn’t have the time or means of meeting officiates from across the waters. So when asking friends and family the recommendation of Brian couldn’t come high enough.
A few days prior to the wedding we met Brian, we were a bit nervous hoping he would fit our personality and be able to give a ceremony that was a reflection of us and nothing too stuffy, immediately we were relieved, knowing the fit was going to be perfect. We had a comfortable chat with Brian, during which he asked questions about ourselves, backgrounds and talked about himself and his family, he was able to make us laugh and feel at ease and then explained how the layout of a ceremony worked. It felt like he got to know us and by the end of the conversation, he shared with us three pieces of advice to bring forward into our marriage. Today we still reflect and apply the advice he shared with us towards our marriage, as well as pass on these gems to friends and family that are about to tie the knot.
On the wedding day, Brian arrived early, was ready for us and set the mood for the ceremony. He started with a bit of a joke about us that had as laughing (calming our nerves) and the guests laughing (connecting into the ceremony), which in turn brought us all in together. From that moment he drew us all into the words he was sharing and made the moment unforgettable and very special not just for bride and groom but for our guests too.
Overall we couldn’t have asked for a better officiate; a kind hearted, polite, professional individual, that is a true natural when it comes to celebrating and connecting loved ones.Courtney & Beau Jansens
- 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
My now-husband and I picked three things that mattered most to us: the venue, photographer and officiant. We wanted a personal ceremony that reflected our story and values, and we got exactly that with Young Hip & Married. Shawn was our officiant and was polite and professional, easy to get a hold of, and we haven’t stopped receiving compliments about our ceremony. Our guests loved how personal it was, and we had total control over the entire script – including the vows we said as we exchanged rings, which was such a special thing for us. I can’t say enough good things! Thank you so much to this team!Jessi
We decided to have a very small intimate wedding ceremony with just us, our son and our parents. We opted for Young Hip and Married because we wanted a relaxed ceremony that had some life to it and was fun. We got exactly this. Our officiant was Cory and he exceeded our expectations. After watching his intro video we really liked his energy and after meeting him in person we realized he truly has a genuine love for being a part of marrying couples. We are a little quirky and shared with Cory in advance the sarcastic poems that we had written for one another. We were in awe when Cory had taken what he had learned about us and wrote a funny poem about us which he recited at our ceremony. It was perfectly attuned with our sense of humour and a wonderful addition to our night. He was genuinely interested in learning about our family and taking the time to make sure everything was perfect and relaxed just as we had envisioned. We really couldn’t have asked for a better officiant. Thanks Cory!Guy Dorchester
LOVED having Beth officiate our elopement – she made it so personal for us, even added some on-the-fly touches during the ceremony that we will always remember. Should also mention that she hiked through the woods in the rain to be a part of our day – what a trooper! Thank you so much to Beth and Young Hip & Married!Jackie & Eli
Excellent company to work with. Jane conducted our ceremony and she was perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend her.Katherine McKey
My husband Skylar and I were so happy with our experience with Young Hip & Married. They were wonderful to communicate with and took the time to explain how things worked clearly and were patient with us as we made a decision about our officiant. Our officiant Peter was perfect. He was flexible, clear, open and so wonderful to deal with. He asked us so many questions and so by the time the day came around we felt like we really knew him and he knew us. He was wonderful on the day attentive and engaged and he speaks so well. He turned our story into something beautiful and memorable for all our guests and ourselves. We had multiple guests asked us where we were friends from because he was so connected to Skylar and I. I would not hesitate recommend both Young Hip & Married and Peter for anyone’s wedding.Lorin & Skylar
- We can’t thank you enough! The fact that we asked your company for an officiant to wake up in the middle of the night and drive to Mount Seymour then hike an hour to the Dog Mountain lookout to marry us is crazy enough. But to have two officiants from Young Hip & Married agree still has us shocked! Thank you for being crazy with us! It was such a pleasure first dealing with Peter and then with yourself when we had to change the date of our wedding.Thank you so much for hiking and marrying us in the only way we could imagine doing it. Chris and I have looked back at the day and pictures several times and are still in disbelief that we pulled it off, and of course, it wouldn’t have been a reality without you. So thank you from our whole hearts (not just the bottom)!Caitlin & Chris
Jordan Shaw was our officiant from Young Hip and Married for our elopement and he was amazing for us! We wanted an intimate, non-religious ceremony and he created an amazing script with a beautiful blessing at the end that was perfect. Highly recommend him and Young Hip and Married for wedding ceremonies!Lauren & Justin
Usually the ceremony is the most boring part of a wedding. I am happy to say that wasn’t the case for us. All of our guests said that our ceremony was the highlight of our wedding. Overall we had an amazing and memorable experience with Young Hip & Married. We started by picking our package based on what is most important to us and we got matched with Marilyn Knipp. Marilyn really listened to what is important to us and asked the right questions to help us think about what we really wanted for our ceremony. She is a great communicator and we felt understood and respected by her. During the actual ceremony, she gave us exactly what we wanted. She gave us the element of surprise that we both wanted, as well as humor, storytelling, and officiating. Everyone was very happy during the ceremony.Heba & Evan
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
Our parents thought we were crazy when we said we wanted to fly Shawn up to Powell River to officiate our wedding. Within moments of Shawn running through the rehearsal, they understood why and were happy we did! Shawn was DEFINITELY the highlight of our day! The ceremony was more than we could have imagined or even come close to constructing ourselves. Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding, Shawn. You are doing amazing work and our only hope is that you’re still around in 10 years to renew our vows (hopefully next time in Hawaii).Jess & Chris
Working with Young, Hip & Married was easy and they provided us a lot of great resources to help with getting organized for the ceremony.
Anthony was our Officiant and he was awesome! He showed up well in advance and considering we had never met before or even walk the ceremony space together he was exactly what we had hoped for. His calm cool demeanor, professionalism and overall enthusiasm for our special moment was fitting for our camp wedding weekend! He was able to read our style and he fit right in with our group creating an even more unique and memorable experience!Luke & Julie
Kristen, we wanted to thank you so much for making our wedding ceremony so meaningful. You made the entire process enjoyable and we have received so many compliments on our fabulous officiant!Brittany & Nate
At first we weren’t sure about the costs involved but as soon as we had a chance to talk to Cory we knew it was well worth it. Cory made all efforts to make himself available to us through Skype since we lived out of town. He helped us with planning all the details of the big day and took a lot of the stress off our shoulders. He managed to suit the ceremony to our personalities and we couldn’t have been happier!Oscar
Having been at a friend’s wedding in the fall where it was very evident that the officiant hadn’t met the couple previously, my then fiancé and I decided that we should invest some money in our wedding ceremony- after all, it was a very important element of our wedding day for us. After some research, we reached out to Young Hip & Married and within a day we had a meeting scheduled with Shawn. From the moment we met him, we knew that we wanted him to officiate at our wedding. It was obvious that he wanted to create a ceremony that was completely “us” and he wanted all our guests to leave the ceremony thinking the same! He answered all our questions and put us at ease. He took us through all stages of the planning so painlessly and it was so much fun working with him. When my fiancé and I read the ceremony script for the first time, we cried- Shawn had captured our story perfectly and we couldn’t wait for the big day!! When it came to the rehearsal, Shawn was just so excited to see us and to prepare us for our big day; all the nerves went away! Then to our big day- the day was so emotional and he actually worked with our guests and us to calm us all down and perform the most perfect ceremony for us!! All our guests were raving about how amazing he was and we couldn’t agree more! Young Hip and Married genuinely care for their couples and we couldn’t recommend them more to all the engaged couples out there!Brian & Ryan
My wife and I had a vision of our elopement being intimate and relaxed. Jane wrote a script that suited our vision, and our lives perfectly. She spoke with honesty and authenticity, and guided us through our brief ceremony lovingly.
Young Hip and Married was a great service to go through. Thanks to them, and especially Jane.Dave & Danielle
We decide to do a Covid year wedding since we had no idea when things will get back to normal again. However, this choice came with a lot of changes along the way during our planning phase. Young Hip & Married went above and beyond accommodating all our date, time, and location changes. We bombarded them with a ton of e-mails, and was all answered with kindness and patience. Shawn was beyond amazing marrying us. He was so genuine, and his bubbly personality and wonderful speech really made the day even better than it was. Emily delivered us wonderful pictures that told our story of that morning, and she delivered sneak peaks to us immediately just because I needed to share it with family overseas. I would definitely recommend them to couples seeking to get married with little hassle!Ginny & Jason
- I’m Hailey’s mom. I know Hallie & Ellie were over the moon about Beth and they let her know that. For my part, I can’t say enough about how wonderful Beth was— in very difficult circumstances as we had to make a venue change at the 11th hour when both brides came down with Covid.I truly don’t know what we would have done without Beth— there would have been no wedding, and our relatively few guests had come a very long distance at great personal expense (literally and figuratively) to celebrate this marriage.The ceremony was memorable and lovely— Beth was gracious, funny, poignant and personal— we appreciated how much research she did about who Hailey and Ellie were as a couple, as well as individuals.So, thank you, Beth, and YHM; we literally couldn’t have done it without you. In sickness and in health indeed!Cindy Findlay
We had the best day ever and enjoyed every moment of our wedding – even the rain! Thank you so much for your assistance throughout the ups and downs of planning our wedding during a pandemic. We loved having you be a part of our day!Brittany & Jeremy
Our elopement was fantastic – I would not have changed a thing!Rebecca & Christopher
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
My husband & I would like to thank Young Hip & Married for their outstanding service for our special day. Right from the start, we felt they went the extra mile to make us feel welcomed, cared for, and they answered all our questions and concerns.. Once we found our photographer and officiant, our communication with both was wonderful.. their sweet, caring personalities set some of our concerns at ease.. closer to wedding date our original venue was no longer an option, and being that neither of us lived in the Vancouver area. We were able to speak with both officiant and photographer and get some input on a secondary location that worked out wonderfully. Our wedding day ended up being chilly and colder than expected, but the love and care both Lauren & Brit brought with them helped make our special day much more special.. We are happy with the service we received and would definitely recommend Young Hip & Married to everyone.
Thank you YH&M, and a huge thank you especially to Lauren & Brit for their excellent service. Our wedding day is a day we will remember for a life time and we are so glad we got to have you apart of our day!
Thank you once again, Tyler & ArdeeArdee & Tyler
The BEST! I wish there were more than 5 stars because they deserve all the stars! Our wedding day could not have been any more perfect. They did a great job making it casual, personal, and unique. There was no stress, no complications, and tons of good vibes.Caitlin & Christopher
We could not have asked for a better experience working with Young Hip & Married. Shawn was there every step of the way to guide us through planning the ceremony. We felt going into our day that he had helped to create a ceremony that really felt like us. On the day, we were even more blown away! We would not have changed one thing, it was perfect. If you are getting married you will not be disappointed booking with Young Hip & Married!!Laura Willms
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

Every single person who attended our wedding took the time to personally tell us what a wonderful job our officiant did. Our guests (and us) were blown away with how eloquently and effortlessly Lani captured our personalities, our story and our love. From the first day we met Lani she was exceptionally professional, friendly and completely accommodating to any requests we had along the way. We are so grateful to Lani for helping give us a wedding ceremony that we will forever cherish!Jasmine & Sandy
- My husband and I had the pleasure of Jane Halton marrying us in a small elopement with only 6 guests. She showed up early and was extremely pleasant. Explained everything prior to the ceremony and made a short and sweet note about marriage and the importance of each guest in our lives, before going through our vows. She even mailed our wedding license for us! Jane was a wonderful addition to our day and put us both at ease. Thank you, Jane!Matt and LaurenLauren & Matt
- Katie & James
The entire experience was fantastic. Jane was amazing and made our day incredible!Amanda & Drew
Beth was an incredible officiant. She got to know us and shared our story effortlessly and beautifully. Our ceremony was perfect for us and far exceeded any expectations. She was easy going and easy to work with. I would recommend Beth at Young Hip and Married to anyone looking for an officiant.Jacqui & Shannon
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
- I’m a Vancouver wedding photographer who has photographed over 250 weddings… which means I’ve witnessed over 250 officiants! I can honestly say that the team at Young, Hip and Married are some of the best. I’ve worked with many of them over the years and they always bring creativity, fun and professionalism to every wedding ceremony. An officiant changes SO MUCH about your ceremony–don’t take your chances with just anybody, hire someone from YH&M!Jamie Delaine Watson
Our wedding experience was wonderful! We flew by helicopter to an area in the mountains that was so special for our ceremony. We had a wonderful time; thank you so much for making our special day so momentous!!Maria & Kurt
Very pleased with Kadee and Young Hip & Married! The whole process with Young Hip & Married was stress-free and easy. We were matched with Kadee as our officiant and she couldn’t have been better! Kadee met with us and heard our story and then crafted a beautiful ceremony that reflected our love and relationship. During the ceremony, Kadee’s energy and presence was calm and grounding and full of light! We were very happy with the service provided by Young Hip & Married in general and Kadee specifically. We definitely recommend them!Karli & Sid
We had Lani as our officiant and couldn’t have been happier. She walked us through the process over coffee, taking lots of our input along the way and asking lots of questions about our story. Having her at our rehearsal was a huge help; I don’t think we would have gotten half as organized without her. On the day itself, she was professional, funny, and engaging – our guests loved her as much as we did. Thank you Lani and YHM!David & Sally
My husband and I chose the elopement package. We wanted a small ceremony so we could get legally married in Calgary before having a wedding in Europe. Our officiant was Layne and he was great. Super friendly and kind. The actual ceremony was short and sweet. Customer service is amazing and it was so easy to communicate with them leading up to the day. I would highly recommend YHM!Paula & Jaromir
Was recommended by a friend who had used their services. We were extremely happy with the results from start to finish. From the simple back and forth via email to get to know us right up to the rehearsal and eventual ceremony to taking care of all documentation, it really was seamless and easy going. Shawn tailored the ceremony exactly how we wanted it to be and based on the compliments received from our guests, the ceremony was a success and enjoyed by all. We highly recommend YH&M!Jean Michael & Tamara
From the bottom of our hearts, we want to send you the biggest thank you in the world for making our ceremony so special, so loving and so thoughtful. Afterwards, people were asking if you were our friend, how long we’ve known you, where did we find you and on and on the compliments went. Thank you so much. You made it a blissful and perfect experience.
While searching for an officiant I came across Young, Hip and Married, I loved the way their website explained what they do and how you can pick who you think you want to work with so within minutes of entering my info in online I had a voicemail waiting from them. We wanted something fun and enjoyable so it asked for a suggestion and next thing you know we had a meeting with Bobbi! She sat down with us got to know our story, asking us questions taking the time to get to know who we were. Once we decided on Bobbi and we got the ceremony outline I couldn’t get over how personal it was. It captured us perfectly she was so fun to work with! We have had so many compliments on Bobbi and the ceremony! Would always recommend this vendor!
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
I believe we had a pretty unique case. My husband and I wanted to have our ceremony on top of Mt. Seymour. There are no gondolas, and there was still plenty of snow on that hike in the beginning of May, so we knew that it would be a challenge to find an officiant who would hike up there with us. Thankfully, Randy from YH&M was up for that challenge! 🙂 He was also there on time and was very attentive; he engaged in meaningful conversations with our guests which meant a lot to me personally. The hike wasn’t easy, so he was also a great moral support to others :). There was an extra cost for his time, but absolutely reasonable and worth it.
I am very grateful that companies like YH&M exist and help bring our dreams to life <3 🙂Irina Gushchina
Working with Shawn and Erica of Young Hip & Married was so awesome! There was so much excitement and high energy right before the ceremony and it was Shawn’s impromptu introduction that really brought us into the moment, setting the soulful intention and deep connected feeling for our ceremony. Even though he had never met us, it was like Shawn really knew us and got what we were all about. The ceremony was so personal and it was really reflective of our values and wants as a couple. We could not be more thrilled. Working with Erica for the photography was equally as awesome. She put us totally at ease and was up for all the silly photo ideas we had. She even walked over to the Olympic stage to take photos of us having our “first dance” at a public concert. Seriously, we can’t say enough good things about Shawn, Erica, and the YH&M Team. We are so happy that they were a part of our joy and we highly recommend them to anyone looking for a unique and personal wedding experience.Kate
I’m so glad that we chose Young Hip and Married to officiate our wedding! Erika was awesome in every way; a great combination of fun, sincerity and professionalism. She took the time to really get to know us and helped make the ceremony exactly as we hoped it would be. We can’t thank you enough, Erika! The day was magical and we truly appreciate all that you did to make it that way!Cathy & Doug
Lani was our officiant and she was lovely to work with. She totally understood who we are as a couple, offered some really lovely suggestions for us to include our family in our ceremony, and was an all around delight to be around!Anja Micevic
This company made our wedding really great! Jane was excellent, friendly and organized and she made our ceremony unique for us! We really appreciate it and for sure we recommend Jane Halton to make your wedding as nice as you want!Brandon & Steph
What an amazing experience! The staff are so kind and talented, they go above and beyond to make sure your ceremony is exactly what you want. It felt amazing knowing our ceremony was hand written and designed to our story. All of our guests loved it, and said it was one of their favourite parts of our wedding.Chantelle & Marcus
I was one of the many couples at Robson’s Square on Valentine’s. I just wanted to say again how thankful I am for what you guys did there. I am sure that all those involved are still exhausted and horse from that days events, but I sincerely hope that your views of that day were not changed! I must confess when I woke up that morning I had no idea I was going to get married, but even if I had known I couldn’t have pictured a more beautiful ceremony, or have found more perfect vows! Thank you so much Shawn Miller for marrying us! Though we had not met before, you spoke to us as old friends, easing our nerves, and even making us laugh. We were by know means the first couple you married that day, but you performed our ceremony as though we were. When you spoke the crowd around us melted away and there was only us three. It was absolute perfection! My only wish now is that I had a copy of those beautiful vows you helped us recite. In the moment I knew what I was saying was right with all my heart! Now that the moment has passed however, I can’t seem to remember them as eloquently as I should. I know it may seem silly seeing as you probably said the same words to every couple there that day but to me those words were meant for us and they are the words I would like to tell my grandchildren I said to their grandpa however many Valentine’s Days ago. My deepest and sincerest thanks to Shawn and everyone involved at Young Hip and Married. I really do hope you can continue this tradition though I do understand the event surely has taken off. In any case I will be sure to recommend Young Hip and Married to anyone getting married! You guys have started our lives together on the best note possible!Kimberley
We are so happy with how the day went (the weather turned out to be so incredible), and we are very grateful for your help in making our day so special. We’ve really enjoyed working with you, right from the beginning with our intro meeting, and it was so great that you understood right away the tone and intent we wanted for our ceremony. You made the process incredibly easy, smooth and stress-free for us, and for that we are very thankful. All our friends thought it was one of the best ceremonies they’ve attended!Mengdi & Max
Probably the best officiants around. Revolutionizing the officiant experience and making it personal, emotional, fun, dynamic and an experience everyone can enjoy.Ivonne & Brent
Our elopement was perfect! Tara took care of all the details and my requests promptly and efficiently. We chose Beth Carlson-Malena to be our officiant who was a perfect fit for us. She took time to meet and get to know our story and performed a perfect loving, joyous ceremony and reading of the vows on the day. Erica Miller photographed us and though I cannot comment on the photos as of yet; we get them in a week or 2, I can say she was also a perfect compliment of joy and celebrating spirit for our small elopement party.
The helicopter company and the pilots who Young Hip and Married use are most excellent. We flew up the mountain. And came down married. It was a beautiful day, the clouds parted, sun came out and blue skies peeked. Thank you Beth, Erica and Tara for making the planning and our Elopement Day flow with ease, joy, and love.Martina Griffiths
- We absolutely loved Jef; he was so wonderful in creating a ceremony for the two of us that was so perfectly us. I cried a few times reading just his rough work because it felt so personal! We would totally recommend Jef and this company! Thank you for helping us create the most important part of our day!Sarah & Devon
We hired Shawn for our elopement at city hall and it was perfect! Great communication leading up to, and the vow course that was included was really helpful to write our own personalized vows! The day of everything went really smoothly and the ceremony was wonderful! Would highly recommend YH&M!Sarah & Adam
Absolutely amazing service! Shawn was so personable and accommodating to our ever changing circumstances! He truly knows how to take your story and tell it in such a beautiful way. Now we are young hip and married!:)Taylor & Justin
Young Hip and Married was an absolute dream to work with. They responded quickly and always fully answered any questions or concerns my husband and I had. They matched us up with the PERFECT officiant, Kristen, who is an absolutely phenomenal person. My husband and I really wanted to have a personalized ceremony performed by someone who truly got us – from the moment we met Kristen we knew she was the one! Whether it was talking on the phone or chatting over coffee, Kristen took the time to really get to know us and our story and she quickly became our friend. Furthermore, my husband and I are not too fond of the spotlight, so the wedding ceremony was a source of anxiety for both of us. Kristen easily removed those anxieties for us, not only in the planning process, but on the day of as well. This is a great company with exceptional people and my husband and I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a truly special and personalized ceremony!Tess & Dillon
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
- I’m so glad we went with these guys. They were so committed to giving us a personal wedding that was us. Jane was awesome and reached out to family and friends to find out stories about us. She also helped me and my partner with writing vows and giving us pointers. She was very open to hearing our thoughts and was soooo easy to work with. On the day, she was incredible! She kept everything fun and light and intimate which is exactly what we wanted. I had people coming up to me and saying that it was the most beautiful and funny ceremony they’ve been to and that was all down to Jane. She kept us right, guided us along the way and made us laugh. I would highly recommend these guys.Sara-Jo & Dáire
We could not imagine a better person to marry us than Beth. She is welcoming, warm and professional; but more importantly than that, we felt utterly comfortable with her.
It is a funny thing to have a stranger play a central part in what is a very personal, often private, happy and vulnerable moment of your life. Beth felt like a friend from the start. She is a person that we would consider a true privilege to know.
Thank you Beth, for your thoughtful, kind and engaging self.Sarah & Tammy
Great experience with Curt on their team. Very easy to work with and professionalism was top notch.Matthew & Karina
Jane was amazing!!! Such a personalized and unique ceremony tailored to our needs/event. On time, professional and open to couple’s input! Would recommend over and over!Alisha & Jesse
Jane Halton was great! On time, energetic and very personable. I highly recommend her!!! Thank you Young Hip and Married!Dan Reynolds
Peter was such a perfect addition to our remote small mountain elopement! So professional and had such a calming present vibe. We highly recommend! Not to mention he traveled three hours to the middle of nowhere! Serious trooper!Tyla & Arad
We had a great experience with Young, Hip & Married. Our officiant was great at keeping in communication. Our ceremony was exactly what we needed and wanted- simply, quick and easy. The whole team at YH&M were great!Shannon & Jack
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
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
Anthony’s warm and humorous personality helped Mario and I feel comfortable and at ease on what could have been a stressful day. Every one of our guests commented on how the wedding ceremony was so wonderful and touching. Anthony’s message and style reflected our own hearts to our guests.Mario & Hilda
Shawn Miller was the officiant at my brother’s wedding as well as a good friend’s wedding about 5 years ago; his charisma and style left a lasting impression on my now husband and I. While planning our wedding years later, we had the pleasure of attending quite a few weddings, so we kept our eyes open for a great officiant but none could compare to Shawn that we had seen years ago. When we met with him the first time, he made us feel relaxed and comfortable; it was an easy choice. He took the time to get to know us and craft a ceremony that felt personal to the both of us. Furthermore, he offered us both help with writing our vows. Shawn did not disappoint; our ceremony was amazing and we had numerous people ask us how we found him! We would highly recommend his services; you won’t regret it!!Jenna & Doug
After 21 years we decided to tie the knot. We didn’t want all the fuss of a big wedding and simply needed a commissioner to facilitate the ceremony. Young, Hip, & Married introduced us to Lauren Kirby who couldn’t have been more perfect. She met with us prior to the big day get to know us and learn our story. My partner and I had opted not to exchange vows — it’s not our style and after 21 years together we didn’t feel any words were needed. That said, as our commissioner, Lauren spoke so eloquently during our ceremony. She skillfully wove our love story into the ceremony and was personal and authentic. We felt that she understood us and reflected that perfectly in our ceremony. Thank you, Lauren!Glen & Houshan
This company had the approach, the guidance, the resources, and the warmth to make my ceremony the best and most unique my friends and family have attended.Annette & Joe
We absolutely loved our wedding ceremony! Shawn was amazing, he kept it light-hearted yet sincere. We had many people approach us afterwards to tell us how much they enjoyed it. Shawn made it so easy, right from meeting him for the first time to exchanging vow ideas and finally, our actual ceremony. He was incredibly helpful at our rehearsal, and was there for before and after the ceremony to congratulate us and give us a chance to ask any last minute questions. We will be recommending him to everyone we know!Nick & Miraya
Amazing Ceremony! One of the comments I heard the most during our reception was how amazing our ceremony was. Everyone was at one time laughing and crying at our story and how personalized the ceremony was to our personalities and relationship. Kadee is absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend her and the team at Young Hip and Married and their Rockin’ Wedding Package to anyone looking for get married and have a memorable and tailored ceremony. Thank you!Jennifer & Stuart
Young Hip and Married made everything so easy for us and they are so flexible and understanding with the needs that we had for our wedding. They made sure every detail was perfect; they provided us with a list of people for the things that we needed to help us see who we felt more comfortable with, who was sending us the vibe that we wanted for our elopement and of course all them very professional. They made sure that the vision we had for our wedding came true, always keeping up to date with everything. During the pandemic, they made it so much easier by being extremely comprehensive with the situation and managed to give us that beautiful experience with all the precautions, keeping us and everyone involved safe. The team that worked with us was so amazing, had the energy we were looking for, very enthusiastic on the adventure that we planned and very happy to share it with us. We had the experience working with them and so extremely thankful for making our day so special and amazing.Andrea & Aleksey
Everything was wonderful; Erika was amazing and she made our ceremony exactly the way we wanted it to be :). She was kind, professional, on time, and just a joy to work with. I would highly recommend her and your team to officiate.Merissa & John
Cory was fantastic – you know he leaves an impression when multiple people come up to say congrats, but then ask you where you found your officiant! Even my wedding planner said he was the best officiant she had ever worked with and will be recommending you to future clients. We love Cory and were so happy we had him as an integral part of our wedding day.
You guys far exceeded our expectations on how you could make our wedding day even more memorable. Thank you for everything!!!Jessica + Reuben
My husband and I were married by Kadee and she was great! She worked with us beforehand to make our ceremony script more personal. She was warm and welcoming and kept us from feeling awkward or nervous at the actual ceremony too (even when we forgot our rings for a minute and a squirrel tried to attack our cake).Kim & Alistair
I loved the short ceremony Shawn performed for my daughter’s wedding. It was touching, inspiring and unique. And Erica was a fabulous wedding photographer. I would highly recommend them as a team!Nala Henkel-Aislinn
Our amazing officiant was Lani from YH&M. She was so personable and we couldn’t imagine such an important day, and milestone in our lives without having her there that day. She catered to all of our requests for our ceremony, offering her opinion when asked and it was nothing short of perfect! Thank you so much Lani and the crew at Young Hip & Married for the most perfect day ever.Vanessa & Justin
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
We had Peter as our officiant – he was fantastic. From the initial stages to signing our names off, the communication we had from Peter & Rebecca was smooth, timely, and solution oriented. Thank you again!!!Joey & Hannah
When I was first looking for an officiant, I had a lot of concerns. I’m a non-traditional bride and our wedding was so diverse that I was worried that I would have a super traditional and rigid officiant. My husband and I found YH&M through looking up online reviews and we were really drawn to the fact that we could customize the ceremony. They were so responsive once we filled in the information form. We got to meet our officiant before making any commitments as well.
Our officiant was Rhona and she was absolutely amazing!! Her energy matched my partner and I so well. She was so helpful and responsive when we emailed her with questions. Having her at our rehearsal made everything run so smoothly on the day. We asked her for a very sweet ceremony with some humour and she absolutely delivered! The ceremony was absolutely the highlight of the wedding. All of our friends and family thought she was great!
Lastly, the vow writing course was so helpful for organizing what we wanted to say to each other 🙂Shaira & De'voreaux
- Our big day will never be one to forget thanks to YH&M! Right from the beginning we had the pleasure of dealing with Jackie-Deane. She got excited when we showed excitement, she made us feel at ease with the process our helicopter elopement, and was super helpful with the abundance of questions we had. 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 (right from a questionnaire!!) 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 to make our helicopter elopement the best day we could imagine during a pandemic! Now we fully understand why people say your wedding day is the best day of your life. 150% recommend YH&M for your wedding day. 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!Katarina & Meaghan
We just wanted to say thank you again! Kristen made our ceremony perfect.Brittany and Thomas
- Peter and I want to thank you again for being part of our wedding ceremony. Your energy and your words were really heartfelt and wonderful. We really enjoyed the ceremony! Thank you!Peter & Daniela
We worked with Rhona and she was amazing! Very responsive, flexible with what we were hoping for our ceremony and just overall a lovely person. Would definitely recommend!Samara & Anders
Thank you so much Danya and Stephen for making our special day happen!! We very much appreciated the extra effort you did under such short notice leading up to Christmas Eve!! It was such a pleasure chatting with you both and meeting you, Stephen. Thanks again for a great experience 🙂Diane & Raymond
Young Hip & Married provided us with a wonderful, simple option for organizing the simple ceremony we wanted. We had originally opted to go with their Helicopter Elopement package, however on the day of our wedding, we were rained out and were unable to fly! YH&M was quick to offer a number of alternative ground locations that we could use that same day, or offered the option to reschedule as well. Since we had planned a reception that evening with our family and friends (for after the ceremony), we opted to continue our ceremony plans the same day in Stanley Park – it was BEAUTIFUL. The team at YH&M worked quickly to make sure that everyone involved (officiant, photographer, extra witness) were all notified of the last minute change and everything went off without a hitch! Both our officiant, Kadee, and our photographer, Erica, were awesome to work with – you can tell they both love what they do and are super pros. If you’re looking for a no fuss way of creating beautiful, intimate memories of your ceremony/wedding day with your partner – look no further, this is it.Saya & Brent
Beth, our officiant, made the day something special. Our guests thought she was a long-time friend, yet we only met her in person the day we were married! We didn’t want the usual “I thee wed” formal church-style ceremony. We are in our 40’s and wanted to celebrate our union with our friends and family. She told our “origin” love story with humour and grace, and made the entire ceremony fun and memorable. The “how to write your vows” video help series was hugely valuable too, and almost all our guests commented on our great vows. Wholeheartedly recommend YH&M and Beth in particular!Warwick & Isabel
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
The process from start to finish with Young Hip & Married was easy and professional. We really enjoyed Kadee as our officiant; she is friendly, helpful and easy going, as well as provides guidance intuitively. Kadee brought a balance of humour, lightheartedness and romance to our ceremony. Our guests raved about it.Derek & Taryn
You did an amazing job. Everyone commented on how personal and wonderful it was. They thought you knew [Laine & Tyler] for a long time. Thank you for making the day so special.Donna, Mother-of-the-bride
I am thrilled I found Young Hip & Married! There are not enough words to express the gratitude we have for Beth and the ceremony she put together for us. She was able to take all my crazy, jumbled thoughts and put them into a beautiful ceremony that was not only above our expectations, but was nothing short of perfection. I had so many compliments on the ceremony: the language she choose for us, the manner in which she interacted with our guests, and the unique and special way she incorporated our children into the ceremony. Furthermore, she was so flexible. Working with her really was a dream, and she helped make my dreams come true! Thank you so much.Kathleen & Adrian
- 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
We had the pleasure of having Lonnie officiate our wedding this past September. His ceremony was a great mixture of laid back, heartfelt, and with a little touch of humour. Highly recommended!
Young Hip and Married was also very easy to communicate with and responded promptly to our emails. They worked hard to accommodate our requests on short notice after a previous reservation with another company had fallen through.TJ & Jessica
- Leah & Ryan
Such an amazing experience! We had switched our wedding plans several times due to the pandemic and decided in the end to elope. The team at Young Hip and Married were so great to work with and special shout out to Jane for being making our wedding still feel special. Would highly recommend!Nicole & Connor
My husband and I are seat-of-my-pants planners and our wedding was no different. We woke up Sunday morning and decided to elope the following weekend. YH&M came through! They were responsive, easy to work with and definitely made having the actual ceremony easy. We just had to contact them, pick a time and we were set for the next week. Picking a restaurant to eat at after was harder to plan than our ceremony.Kathy G
- Working with Young, Hip & Married was fantastic. Our officiant, Curt, went above and beyond to make our ceremony special and memorable. We couldn’t have asked for a better day!
Young Hip & Married (especially Jackie-Deane) did an amazing job of making our elopement both easy and amazing. The service was professional and quick, and our photographer, Sarah, and officiant, Beth, were both wonderful. We were so happy to share such a great day with both of them. I would highly recommend them to anyone!!Nicole & Fionnhula
We had a wonderful experience with Shawn. He tailored our ceremony to be specific and unique to us which was so meaningful. We had many guests ask how long we had known Shawn as it seemed like he was an old friend. They were shocked to find out that we had just met through the wedding planning process. Would thoroughly recommend using him as your officiant.Jacqueline & Derek
My partner and I loved our elopement-style wedding! We had a destination wedding the following week, but wanted something short and sweet for the legal ceremony in Vancouver. Every aspect of working with Young Hip & Married was a breeze! Their website was clear, easy to navigate, and had helpful tips. After we filled out the questionnaire, we received a response within the day, were able to secure a time and location within the following day, and heard from our officiant immediately. Planning our wedding has involved many vendors that have been unreliable, so I can tell you that when our officiant arrived early on the day of the ceremony and things went exactly as we expected, we couldn’t have been happier! All of our friends and family also remarked at how pleasant and seamless the ceremony was.Shaneen & Patrick
We are so happy we hired our officiant from Young Hip & Married! Excellent service since the day we inquired and right up to our big day and even after. We are so lucky to have Marilyn and she is everything!! She is such an amazing person and so great with what she does and I couldn’t have asked for a better officiant. She’s perfect!! She made sure that our ceremony will run smoothly and tailored it to what we want it to look like and made it truly unforgettable. It was so special and it’s something we will always remember for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much Young Hip and Married team who are always been so helpful!Kishia & Paolo
We used Young Hip & Married for our small elopement ceremony. They were caring, quick to respond, and respectful of our wishes. Peter La Grand was our officiant, and he was awesome. Very timely, and was able to accommodate all of our requests. He made our day very special and exactly what we were hoping for. Highly recommended!Natalie & Andrew
- 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
Gerry Hiebert did a wonderful job officiating our wedding. He was extremely helpful with his suggestions on how the ceremony could flow. He listened to the things that we had requested be put in the ceremony and you could tell he had much wisdom in the area of weddings.
Nicole and I were blessed to have someone so experienced as Gerry marry us. He’s kind-hearted and funny and (most importantly, haha) he stepped off to the side for our first kiss so the photographer didn’t get him in the shot. You can easily tell his heart’s desire is for the couple and the families celebrating to have a good time together.Jesse-Cole and Nicole
- We would just like to say THANK YOU, so much, for everything! Our wedding day was a perfect whirlwind of excitement. Brian is absolutely amazing and somehow managed to make a ceremony that blended Cody’s Jewish traditions with my modern bohemian spirituality. The only word I have that could accurately describe the feeling of that day is pure joy.I honestly don’t know what we would have done without Young Hip and Married, I am so thankful we found you guys 🙂
Amazing service! Other than having our marriage licence (which was about to expire) we didn’t really have any idea how to pull our elopement off. Rebecca put us in touch with our officiant Brian, who worked with us to mix together different traditions into a style that was perfectly us. From initial email to signing our marriage licence, the whole process took two weeks. 10/10 would recommend! Thanks so much everyone 🙂Chrystal & Cody
We got married at the end of September with Shawn as our officiant. The entire process was stress-free and Shawn really delivered the wedding ceremony that fit us best. Thank you for making our ceremony heartfelt, light-hearted and most importantly: fun! Thanks again to the entire Young Hip & Married team!Cassady & David
We used Young Hip and Married for our wedding and could not say enough about how amazing they were. We had a very unique request with a surprise ceremony and Peter La Grand was able to deliver on our vision (with very little input form us).Roger & Samantha
As seniors, we wanted a simple ceremony. Our Commissioner met with us beforehand to get to know us and what our wishes were. He listened, prepared the wedding vows script per our request and approval, and the wedding was exactly what we wanted, stress-free and casual. We highly recommend their services.Erik & Karen
Beth did an amazing job for our ceremony done in French and English. She was wrote a thoughtful, love-filled ceremony and delivered it flawlessly. There were many happy tears.Joe
We couldn’t have been happier with our experience with Young Hip & Married! After finding out Randy was available for our big day, we decided to meet with him for coffee. Randy’s funny and easy going personality, along with his professionalism, made us feel he was the perfect fit to officiate our wedding! He took the time to get to know us as a couple and our story, which we really liked. He attended our rehearsal where he walked us through everything and provided us with helpful ideas, while making it fun. We can’t express enough how thankful we were to have Randy as our officiant. He was there throughout our wedding planning to answer any questions, provide us with support and reassurance that we were on the right track, and he even helped us with writing our vows! When the day came, our ceremony was honestly perfect and more than what we could have hoped for. Randy made our ceremony memorable and special by making it specific to us as a couple and our journey together. He even incorporated a beautiful love quote from “The Office” because he knew it was sentimental to us, which we loved! We got so many compliments from our family and friends and were told it was the best ceremony they’ve been to! This was because they said it was “us” and they were emotionally involved throughout the ceremony. Even a few of our friends, who are getting married, asked for Randy’s contact information. Thank you so much Young Hip & Married, especially Randy, we can’t thank you enough for all your support and help in making our day extra special!!Krystal
Kristen was amazing! Kristen was a lit officiant. We are so so very glad that we were connected with her. She is kind, caring, fun, thoughtful, organized, professional and all around amazing.
She truly made our day what we dreamed of. She was a rockstar during the rehearsal and really helped make sure everything ran smoothly. She honoured our wishes and gave suggestions when we needed.
The ceremony was incredible. It was real, genuine, personal, heart warming and beautiful. Kristen set the tone for just what we were hoping for. We are so grateful!!Casey & Flavio
- There is not a single aspect that I could have imagined being better, I wouldn’t change a thing. Jodi is absolutely delightful, everything I hoped for in an officiant. I knew from the second I saw your domain name that your company was the one for Graham and I. Thank you for being so accommodating of our adventure filled lifestyle; I seriously doubt that anyone could be so great helping us plan our wedding from Halifax. Four time zones away? Jodi didn’t even flinch.Thank you for creating such a fantastic community of people dedicated to keeping the magic of marriage young, hip, and beautiful! You guys blew my mind!With much love and light,Madeleine & Graham (Young, hip, and stoked to be married!)Madeleine & Graham
We had a trip planned to Canada from Kansas. We decided a couple weeks before our trip that we’d get married while we were visiting. Because of Young Hip & Married, it was easier than I ever though it would be! Everyone was fantastic to work with! Thanks again!!Jessica Zwiesler
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
Thank you so much for officiating our wedding. We were so happy with your service and glad you were a part of our special day!!Rika & Hiroshi
Jane was a huge help from our first consult with her through writing our ceremony and vows. She was very responsive and answered all of our questions about how to structure our ceremony with very helpful detail. Also the ceremony she wrote was great for us, we got a lot of comments from guests saying it was the best ceremony they had ever attended!Jen & Dean
We had the most incredible laid back wedding hosted by Shawn Miller of Young Hip and Married. From the moment we first started talking about our ideas to the actual day, we had full support and communication from Shawn and the team. We are based in the U.K. and they worked with the time zone difference to organize Skype calls and used Google docs to write and annotate the wedding service. If you want a fully customizable, personal, laid back wedding, this is the company to use.Sarah & Phillip
It didn’t take very long for my wife and I to realize we made the right decision choosing YH&M. We were paired up with Kristen and she was nothing short of amazing! She came across as a very genuine and lovely person and was extremely attentive to any questions or concerns and in turn she was very informative. In the weeks leading up to our big day, she made sure that everything was dialled in and we were feeling comfortable. The ceremony was an awesome experience; She was able to set the tone for the day and tell our stories in a beautiful and very fun way. We cannot say enough good things about this company and this lovely lady. Thank you!Madison & Jan Michael
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
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
A ceremony well-delivered! Kadee was exactly what we were looking for in a wedding officiant.
She managed to strike the perfect balance of humor and sincerity. Our ceremony felt personal and intimate, even though we had only met Kadee that day. A ceremony well-delivered. Thank you!Judy & Rob
When we met in person with Erika at YH&M, we knew right away that she was who we wanted there on the big day. We were pleased with her communication, support, and most importantly her execution on the day. So many of our guests were commenting on how beautiful our ceremony was – Erika kept it short, sweet, and personal. She was a calming presence while standing up there and saying “I do”. Forever grateful.Jasmine & Dylan
Beth was an incredibly kind, approachable, professional and easy-going officiant. Beth really got to know us as a couple and personalized our wedding ceremony and experience. She got in touch with all our friends and family many months before the wedding to compile unique anecdotes and stories shared with our loved ones. When first meeting Beth, I just knew she was the best fit for us and I sensed right away she was going to make the experience preparing our ceremony smooth and enjoyable. Beth was so flexible and opened our eyes to the many possibilities we could have for our ceremony. My guests said that it was the most memorable and touching ceremony they had been to and certainly a highlight of the night! We will remember our ceremony forever and reflect on this experience throughout our new lives together. Thank you so much!!Sara & Alex
Just wanted to drop you a quick message to say thank very much for Friday. It was the best day of our lives and we thank you for being a huge part of it. So many people complimented the ceremony. It was brilliant. – CiaranCiaran
My partner and I planned our wedding to be very non-traditional with lots of personal touches, and we wanted our ceremony to reflect that as well. Sarah understood our vision from the start and worked closely with us to create something we loved. From totally delivering on our request of “we want this section to have feel-good, funny vibes” to working in a math joke during the ring exchange or incorporating our favorite movie quote, she delivered a ceremony that was personal, memorable, and totally unique to us. Our guests couldn’t stop gushing about how it was “the most fun wedding ceremony ever!”
She also ran our ceremony rehearsal and blew us away there too! We had almost 30 people involved in our ceremony, and she was able to organize and direct everyone so seamlessly that we managed to make it through the run-through twice in one hour (with time to spare).
On top of being amazing professionally, Sarah is incredibly kind. She brought such genuine warmth and joy to our day—the perfect embodiment of the love we felt for each other!
I can’t recommend Young Hip & Married highly enough! They’ll deliver a stress-free, highly personal day that is filled with love down to the tiniest detail.Haley & Carrington
We would like to thank you again for being such a good spirit about the rain and really being professional throughout the ceremony despite getting completely poured on. A lot of our guests commented on what a trooper you were! Mauricio and I agreed that you were the real heart of the day and kept us thinking about what was really important and not worried about the rain as much as we could have.Amy & Mauricio
We were married by Rich for our Canmore wedding and we really enjoyed getting to know him. He helped us write a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted, was personable, professional and timely. We’re so glad we went with Young Hip & Married.Brittany & Mark
We had such an amazing time working with Shawn Miller! We knew he was the perfect one to officiate our wedding right when we first had our zoom meeting with him! He was easy to talk to and was very accommodating! He was also present on our wedding rehearsal a few days before the wedding.
He made our wedding day extra special by telling a short story about my husband and I. Our family and friends asked if we knew him beforehand because the way he talked during our ceremony made it seem like he was there right when my husband and I started dating– the ceremony was unique and very personal. He also gave us pointers on how to write our own vows!
Overall, we highly recommend Young Hip & Married, and we loved working with Shawn! Thank you for making our wedding day extra special and memorable!Adrienne & Tyler
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
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 could not be happier that we hired Shawn to be our wedding officiant! The whole process of working with him was a dream and he created the most amazing, personalized ceremony that we could have asked for. All of our guests couldn’t stop talking about how awesome he was and how they enjoyed the ceremony very much. Shawn genuinely cares about the couples he works with and is a true professional who is easy to work with, fun, and stylish. We highly recommend him for any wedding! Thank you Shawn!Justin & Johnnie
We had Beth as our officiant for our wedding this summer. She was fabulous! We met her at a coffee shop to see if it was a right fit for us and she was. Beth was very communicative via email and she was very flexible with our rehearsal. She prepared a fantastic ceremony based on our survey responses and responses from our friends. We received many compliments on our ceremony. We highly recommend Beth and the team!Darren & Shauna
Thank you to Jane for making our elopement a memorable and enjoyable experience. We wouldn’t have changed a thing. Cheers!Angela & Ryan
We got married on August 12th and had Marilyn as our officiant. She was absolutely everything we wanted! We wanted it to be light-hearted, fun and still romantic and she delivered plus more. She got the crowd going before the wedding so that everyone felt like they were a part of the ceremony and everyone was all excited by the time it started. We were a little disorganized and didn’t have the papers filled out correctly, and I forgot my vows 🙁 She handled it like a pro, and made me feel so encouraged and comfortable as I was ad-libbing my vows. I could not have gotten a better person marrying us. Marilyn, thank you for making our day even better! You were the icing on the cake 🙂Antonella & Peter
I highly recommend Young Hip & Married! We planned our Vancouver wedding from out of town but that was never a challenge. The office and our officiant Kristen were always very responsive and happy to answer our questions. Most importantly, our guests and us had a blast during the ceremony! Couldn’t have done it without this lot!
Thank you so much, Kristen! We received lots of compliments on the ceremony, so that was definitely all you! We were on tip toes when you spoke of our story, all ears!
Finally, I especially enjoined the little banter you and Toby had during the rehearsal, over which hand to use for the exchange of rings. Such a true demonstration of professionalism!
Thank you for everything!Ruth & Tobias
Young Hip & Married made this process so incredibly easy. They found the perfect person for us! Rich officiated our wedding on October 1st and he was an absolute pleasure to work with! He really listened to what we wanted/needed. Thank you again 🙂Britney & Brian
We can’t thank you enough for how easy you have made this process for us. Your professionalism and kindness helped us so much as we were so last minute and behind on our planning …❤️ There is nothing I would change and again thank you.Darya & Anoush
- We had a dreamy elopement prior to our big wedding. It was unforgettable and they made it as smooth and fun an experience as one could wish for!Catriona & Damien
Working with YH&M was a wonderful (and easy) experience from start to finish! Rhona was just SO lovely to have marrying us, her warmth and genuine love of LOVE really added something special to the day!Britt & Liam
Shawn was absolutely amazing! It was raining on our special day..but Shawn made it seem like there wasnt a drop in the sky. His words soothed the crowd..and everyone was in the present moment sharing laughs and tears together. Shawn kept it light, romantic, and fun…just what we asked for. Our day was perfect. Thanks so much Shawn; we appreciate it more than you know.Tanya
Our officiant, Jodi, did a fantastic job and we’re incredibly glad to have had her conduct our ceremony. She kept it simple, stress-free, and easy – exactly what we needed for our elopement. Thank you!! ❤️Carolyn & Peter
We were SO pleased with YHM! Shawn was our officiant and was great to work with. He collaborated with us to customize our ceremony. He also did a fantastic job facilitating and taking charge of our rehearsal. On our wedding day day, Shawn was fantastic. His kind energy put everyone at ease and he was very charismatic and engaging. Our guests were blown away by our ceremony and I would recommend Shawn to any couple needing an officiant!Nicky
Wow. Randy was amazing!!! We surprised our parents with an elopement and Randy (who we had never met before) became our newest family member! He showed such compassion, generosity and thoughtfulness throughout the whole process – we honestly could not have asked for a better experience. We had no idea but Randy captured each of the surprises on video and sent them to us! Such valuable memories to have! Randy is a lovely human being and definitely THE person you want to officiate your wedding!Christina
Chris-Ann was amazing! Great energy, flexible with how we wanted to do things, and great communicator.Kevin & Brooke
Young Hip and Married made getting married effortless! They coordinated everything, from booking our helicopter with SKY to confirming our vendors. Erika was available to answer all of our questions and wrote a beautiful ceremony for us to commit our love to each other!Tiia & Lewis
Nothing but love for Young Hip and Married. We thoroughly enjoyed our ceremony and appreciate them for making our day so special!!Samantha & Zack
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
Easy and they guided us step by step. Love Chris; made our ceremony special even during covid.Christine & Jason
I used YOUNG HIP AND MARRIED, to help assign an officiant for my elopement wedding. It was short notice and they were able to assign a wonderful officiant named Erika to come to our wedding. I really liked how efficient the company is; their main contact who organised everything with me always was available for any questions or problems that arose via text. Also being not super religious, I found the marriage vows the officiant wrote for us were perfect and did not focus on any religious aspects. Everything went smoothly, the price we paid for this company was very suitable. I would highly recommend it to young couples who want to take the hassle out of arranging an officiant and a photographer because the YH&M team will arrange it for you as part of their package (Depending on which package you select).Tina & Stephen
My wife and I got married in February, having a small, intimate COVID safe ceremony at our recording studio. As a queer couple, we wanted to find an officiant for the wedding who understood our experience in the world and who could grasp our views and feelings surrounding marriage, and how we wanted our day to look. We found YH&M online, and heard back within a day – right away they recommended one of their officiants, Lauren, to us – who we then had an opportunity to meet with over Zoom. We chatted for a solid hour and had a wonderful time getting to know Lauren, and felt right away that she understood who we are and what’s important to us. We connected right away! We had a “chosen officiant” to host the wedding, so Lauren was simply attending as the legal commissioner/witness to sign off on our paperwork – but her incredible presence added so much to our big day. She is so kind, thoughtful and wonderful to be around. I would recommend Lauren, and Young Hip & Married’s services to any other couples out there looking for officiant/commissioners right now. They are wonderful to work with, and lovely compassionate folks. Thanks for making our day so wonderful!Nicolle & Megan
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
Friends of ours used YH&M a few years back and we absolutely loved the ceremony they put together for them. So when my hubby proposed of course one of the first vendors I reached out to was YH&M. We were paired up with Erika to officiate our ceremony and immediately clicked with her our first FaceTime chat. From day one she was very involved with the planning, kind, and very responsive. She made the process easy and fun and we enjoyed working with her along the way! Come our big day that just passed (September 2021), she created the perfect ceremony for us. She added humour, emotion and life into our ceremony as she shared our story with our friends and family. I would absolutely recommend Erika/ YH&M for your ceremony!
Our ceremony was perfect and Erika was just an absolute delight to have marry us. Our guests were so touched and entertained by your words Erika, and Colton and I felt the day flowed so perfectly thanks to you. I will forever recommend YH&M whenever anyone asks me for officiant recommendations (actually even if they don’t ask LOL!)Cassandra & Colton
Both my new husband and I would highly recommend the services at Young Hip & Married. We had a lot to do in a short amount of time, and their services were fast (like we were hoping for) however I was pleasantly surprised to find out how very much they cared about making our special day perfect for us. Our officiant Jodi was amazing, and didn’t mind my last minute bride calls and questions. The wedding was short and simple just as we had requested, however it was one of those moments in time that we’ll never forget, and for that I’d like to send out a huge thank you to Tara, Jodi, and the entire Young Hip & Married team for helping us make our special day come true.Nicole
We got married at a small park and just loved the experience. Eric was polite and professional and our ceremony was exactly what we wanted.Jessica & Tyson
I am so happy that I chose Young Hip & Married. Our officiant, Erika Enns, was amazing. She’s such a lovely person and she was the perfect fit for our ceremony. And our photographer Emily Nicole – she guided us through our photoshoot and now we have very beautiful photos from our wedding. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who is looking for an officiant & photographer – all in one place. Everything was so easy to arrange. I just loved it. A huge thank you to all.Evita & Andrejs
My husband and I used Young Hip & Married to find Lauren for our elopement in August this year. We had the easiest lead up to the wedding day! She helped us find vows to choose from and was so easy going after a few location changes on the day prior. She put together the most beautiful ceremony that was so fitting for our easy going day! We couldn’t be happier and would recommend Lauren and YH&M to anyone!Carly & Robert
Hubby and I decided to get married in a private and intimate ceremony instead of waiting for COVID-19 restrictions to be lifted. We contacted YH&M as we had no idea where to start. They helped us from start to end. They coordinated everything; we even got guidance on how to write our vows. Our ceremony was very intimate and beautiful. Shawn Miller was our officiant and Emily Nicole our photographer; I cannot stress enough how amazing they are. We are more than happy with our decision to marry during COVID times and incredibly thankful with YH&M for making it happen, in such an intimate, romantic and lovely way.Eva & Peter
We used Young Hip & Married for our officiant for our wedding and couldn’t have been happier with our experience! Especially when 3 days before our wedding our original officiant unfortunately contracted COVID and couldn’t participate in our wedding any longer, Young Hip & Married was all over it and immediately connected us with another one of their officiants; we didn’t have to do anything. It saved us a lot of stress and our wedding was perfect.Geraldine & Michael
Beth Carlson-Malena was a joy to work with as the officiant for our wedding ceremony. We wanted a small, simple wedding and she helped guide us through the process, giving us great suggestions, which resulted in a ceremony that was perfectly suited to us. She is personable and very easy to talk and relate to. Our wedding celebration was lovely and she helped make our day extra special with her warmth and professionalism. We would highly recommend her.A & P
Easy to reach, easy to coordinate with, transparent with every transaction. Everything about our wedding was personalized and done how we wanted it. No drama. No nonsense. Vow making seminar is so easy to follow and such an awesome feature. Beth is an amazing officiant, took the time to know us and we felt she is never too busy to accommodate our questions or requests. Britt is an amazing photographer, took the time to scout our venue to find best shots possible.Angeli & Renz
- We were definitely happy we went with Young Hip & Married and we would recommend them 1000% to anyone looking to get married. We had to plan our ceremony on short notice and they were able to accommodate the date and location we wanted, as well as a few last minute tweaks to the ceremony. The vow writing course was very useful and helped make our vows all the more meaningful. Shawn and Erica are a great team and they will help make your big day so sweet and memorable.Grace & Pauric
YHM were wonderful to work with and were great at rolling with the punches when our wedding dates and details were altered by COVID-19. Peter La Grand was our officiant and he was really awesome, a great listener, and did a great job writing a unique script for himself at the ceremony that honoured our history and requests.Sterling & Ara
YHM was so easy and fun to work with. We booked our officiant, Denise, roughly a month before our elopement and the whole process from consultation to the wedding day was such a breeze! Denise kept in touch with us so many times to make sure that we had everything sorted out and ready to go. She then delivered such a stellar ceremony for us to remember. Tears were shed; it was magical. Highly recommend YHM and Denise to anyone looking to make their special day truly a once in a lifetime experience.Viona & Brian
YH&M was the perfect choice for us. They were professional and very easy to deal with. Answered any questions we had immediately and made the whole process simple. Jonathan, who married us was amazing! We met him over FaceTime and the decision was clear. He was professional, kind, personable and cool. We felt like we’d known him forever; he made us feel so comfortable. Our families also commented on how great he was. We couldn’t be happier with our choice.Riley Flynn
My experience with Young Hip & Married was beyond amazing. They provided me with everything I needed. Our officiant Rhona is one of the most beautiful souls. She was so dedicated to making our day unique and special; we felt supported and like our wedding and ideas mattered. Amber Leigh was our photographer and we had such an amazing experience with her. She had us laughing, and caught some of our most special moments. I would highly recommended these two to anyone looking to make their wedding day special.Ashley & Sara
We used YH&M for our ceremony which was postponed a bunch of times due to pandemic restrictions. Every time they accommodated us without any issue and always had someone available. Our ceremony was officiated by Marylin. She was awesome! She kept everyone at ease and made the ceremony fun and memorable. Thank you Marylin and YH&M!Stephen & Jasmine
We had a 10/10 experience with Young Hip & Married! There was many bumps along the road with planning our wedding and 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!Rebecca & Tanner
Kadee was very professional and her personalized speech was very touching and a great addition to the ceremony. She took the time to speak with close friends and family to make the ceremony more interesting, and very memorable and heartfelt for us and our family and friends.Pedram & Pegah
Thanks again for everything! Your personal touches were incredible and we received comments from so many of our guests about it. We would highly recommend you to our friends and family.Sarah and Chris
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
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
We were extremely happy and fortunate to have you marry us. It was unfortunate with all the rain, however it was still a beautiful day and everything turned out fantastic – best day ever!Henry & Mel
It was a wonderful experience! They were professional and eager to please! Amazing pictures and memories! Highly recommend!David & AJ
Erika – thank you so much!! You were wonderful, and so many people told us that ours was one of the best ceremonies they’d been to.Kathryn & Neil
Truly awesome job Jason did for the wedding. He was always on time for appts and very punctual. Handles himself in a professional manner while making sure to have some humour along the way. I would recommend him to anyone; he made the day very special.Jason & Lindsey
James and I had very specific requests and concerns regarding our wedding ceremony. Anthony more than addressed them all and worked with us to achieve exactly what we had envisioned—if not better! We specifically chose Anthony because we loved the way he spoke so clearly and personably when speaking to a congregation. We wanted a God-centered ceremony that reflected our hearts and our beliefs, but was not preachy or offensive. Of 180 people, nearly everyone commented or wrote letters afterward on how it was one of the most amazing and beautiful weddings they had ever been to.Sarah & James
Jane Halton and the folks at YH&M were fantastic to work with and they made our special day that much more special. My wife and I can’t recommend them enough!Arash & Sumedha
We really enjoyed our wedding, they made it super easy for us to elope. Charlie was super professional and so friendly she really made our special day perfect. We highly recommend it to anyone.Johnny & Cindy
We had Shawn Miller officiate our wedding and he was absolutely amazing from start to finish! We were looking for an officiant who was NOT BORING! Meeting with Shawn for the first time, he made us both really excited for the ceremony and seemed like the perfect. He said you sometimes go to weddings where the ceremony is the most boring part but yet it is the most important and meaningful part of the day. We both completely agreed and wanted to ensure our ceremony was the most meaning part of our day so hiring him to be our officiant was an easy choice! Leading up to our wedding, Shawn put together a beautiful outline of what we would expect during the ceremony. It was extremely personalized and engaging which was exactly what we were hoping for. He came up with ideas and details we both never would have thought of and loved everything he suggested! Immediately following our ceremony along with following the days after our wedding, we continued to receive many amazing comments from our guests saying how they never have been apart of a more beautiful ceremony before ours. Looking back on our amazing day, our ceremony was definitely our favorite part of our day and we will never forget it! Thank you so much Shawn – we are so grateful to have found you!Karly & Wade
We just did an Elopement Package so we could get legally married before going down south for the big bash. It was easy to set up online, then keeping in contact with Layne was also very simple and painless. The actual day of the ceremony was intimate, short and obviously magical for us! Would highly recommend Layne and Young Hip & Married to anyone that is looking for an officiant!Mairi & Daniel
Jonathan, our officiant, MADE this day – he quelled any and all anxiety we had prior to the wedding (having planned it all on our own) and was our closest ally when religious differences from our family threatened to interfere with what we both wanted. The service offered by YH&M is professional, and true to what they advertise – weddings that are TRUTHFUL, HONEST and that put love FIRST. My husband and I would both recommend this to anyone looking for an alternative to city hall or traditional religious ceremony. THANK YOU YH&M!Anissa & Mina
Thank you SO SO much to everyone at Young Hip & Married! My new husband and I were visiting Canada from the UK and had always wanted something simple, stress free and intimate for our wedding. We certainly got that with YH&M! From the first email, right up to receiving the papers, everything was a breeze! We had the ‘Photography and Elopment Package’ with the wonderful Emily as our photographer and the fabulous Shawn as our officiant. We wrote our own vows, with helpful suggestions from Shawn, and loved every word Shawn said throughout our ceremony. He made us feel totally at ease, as did Emily! Emily made a camera shy couple feel totally confident, like no one was even there! We couldn’t be happier with our beautiful photos! Our day was just amazing. Thank you YH&M for marrying us!Joanna & Mat
Beth Carlson-Malena was our wedding officiant in May 2022. She made us feel at ease in our initial meeting, and put together the ceremony of our dreams. Our friends and family cannot stop raving about the ceremony, how much it felt like us, and how much they enjoyed Beth herself.Michaela & Shafer
Absolutely superb people and superb service! We had a very inspiring welcome to Young Hip and Married via Rebecca, who connected us with the best officiant ever, Jane Halton, and our awesome photographer, Emily, who brought a wonderful balance of warmth, professionalism and genuine happiness to our photo shoots. We also felt that the cost of these excellent people helping us out was very reasonable and on the whole, we would say that you need look no further for your wedding officiant and photographer needs. We’d give them 8/5 stars if we could!Tristan & Carol
Our elopement couldn’t have been more perfect! It was just what we wanted with a quiet and beautiful location, and the ceremony was very intimate and special. YH&M were so friendly and helpful throughout the whole process. Thank you Shawn and Erica for helping to make this the most memorable day of our lives! It turned out even better than we had hoped.Janna Hsieh
Our officiant Erika was on time, professional and very pleasant to talk to. She understood what we wanted really quickly and completed one of the most important pieces of the whole wedding perfectly. Would definitely recommend her.Bruce & Amy
Exceeded expectations at every turn! We cannot recommend Young Hip and Married highly enough. Every single person we interacted with was amazing. Their customer service is top notch and the officiants are incredible. We received so many compliments on our officiant and it’s such an unexpected thing for guests to actually be awake and engaged during a wedding ceremony (ha!). Thank you so much to Shawn and the team for being a part of our big day and making it such a fun and enjoyable experience! 10/10 all around!Erin & Mike
We had Shawn as our officiant for our wedding. We cannot say enough good things about Shawn and YH&M! We had to postpone our May 2020 wedding to May 2021 due to covid, and Shawn was so understanding, flexible, and supportive during the re-planning process. We had access to our ceremony script, which we could edit on google docs as needed. Shawn worked with us to figure out what type of ceremony we wanted, and gave us ideas and prompts for the script. Shawn was absolutely amazing for the rehearsal and ceremony and he was such a calming presence on our wedding day. We 100% recommend Shawn and Young Hip and Married!Jenelle & Stuart
- Now that Anton and I have had a chance to relax a bit and enjoy married life, we just wanted to say another big thank you to you for being part of our wedding day and making it so memorable for us. We had such a great time and the ceremony was just like we wanted it to be (and fun too!).We found the rehearsal to be super helpful too. It made us feel more comfortable and confident on the day. I didn’t get much sleep the night we did the rehearsal, but I surprisingly slept well the night before the wedding. I think it really helped me to have time to reflect on what was going to happen on the wedding day.Thank you for the vow course as well! It was great to have a framework to work with, with the different sections and relative lengths of each.Yasaman & Anton
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
They made the whole process very seamless. Always contactable and had great contacts for vendors to complete our day.Rod & Jessica
Dealing with YHM was seamless and easy! We did a last minute (10 days from decision to wedding day) small elopement ceremony and were so thankful that YHM could accommodate our short timeline. Rebecca was so quick and helpful at getting the admin pieces organized and was easy to communicate with. Last minute time changes to our ceremony were accommodated and we were never made to feel like our requests were unreasonable. Erika, our officiant, was responsive, flexible, organized, and patient. We were able to personalize our ceremony to something that felt meaningful to us. Overall, I would definitely recommend YHM to anyone looking for officiant services on their wedding day. Thank you for helping make this wedding happen on a short timeline!Joti & Mike
- 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
Shawn Miller was our officiant for our small ceremony on May 12, 2017. We couldn’t have asked for a better person to be part of the one of the biggest days of our lives! Not only was the experience a memorable one for us, it was special and unique. Shawn spoke with warmth and sincerity. He brought smiles to our faces and our hearts. If anyone is looking for a wonderful, professional, charismatic and all around awesome person to officiant your wedding, I would highly recommend it! In fact, I insist it!Tina Do-An
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
After changing our wedding date twice and moving it from our province of origin to Vancouver (where we are living), we were matched up with Shawn from Young Hip and Married through our elopement company. I don’t think our wedding planner could have picked a more PERFECT officiant for our special day. Shawn was so kind and energetic (and dressed so damn well to boot!!). He spoke beautifully at the ceremony and was extremely accommodating to the wants and desires of us as a couple. I cannot thank Shawn enough for helping make out big day as special as possible for us!!Robyn & Graeme
- Young Hip & Married was super easy to work with, professional and responsive. They have a straightforward process delivered in a fun way. Lots of resources made available as well for ceremony ideas and suggestions, and the vow course included was also super helpful! Our officiant Chris-Ann Lake brought wonderful energy and experience. She provided the perfect balance of structure and guidance as well as flexibility and creativity for personalizing the ceremony in a way that was fun and enjoyable, and not at all overwhelming. We’ve heard such great feedback from guests about the feel and the script for the ceremony – it was an engaging experience for everyone. All in all a great experience with YH&M and Chris-Ann, and would definitely recommend!Kathryn & Ezekiel
Shawn Miller performed our ceremony and he executed it perfectly – exactly what we wanted for our big day! He customised our ceremony to suit our personalities and it was very fun and engaging but captured the importance of the decision we were making to spend our lives together. Our guests commented over and over again on how much they enjoyed our ceremony! I would recommend Young Hip and married to anyone getting married – especially if you want something a little bit extraordinary! Thank you so much Shawn!Megan Hyams
Working with Shawn and the Young Hip and Married team was a dream come true. We had a good feeling about it from the beginning based on the feedback from other couples so we didn’t think twice. Shawn’s enthusiasm was contagious and inspired us to think about taking a modern approach to our ceremony (like doing a cocktail hour before), infusing our personal story with a little bit of humour, and writing the most heartfelt vows (their guideline to writing vows was super helpful). We also appreciated the extra care when our officiant phoned on the day before our wedding just to check in on how we were feeling. Our wedding was truly beautiful, but one of the best compliments we get from our guests are that they absolutely LOVED the ceremony, and some even say that it was the best part of our wedding. Young Hip and Married is for anyone who thinks that their wedding ceremony should be unique, on-brand and fun. They are dedicated to celebrating not only weddings but LOVE as a whole!Elena Sarasom
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
Jon officiated our wedding this past weekend and he was amazing! From our first meeting to the day of, and all the interactions in between, he made us feel so comfortable. Jon thoroughly explained the entire process to take away any of our stress. He catered to our needs and delivered a beautiful ceremony. It was everything we wanted and more. Thank you so much Jon!!!Nicola Hitchcock
We loved how our wedding came together, it was incredibly easy and straight-forward (maybe a total of 10 emails to arrange the entire thing!). Beth Carlson-Malena was our officiant, we loved how she approached creating our ceremony and that we were able to personalize all of the language to make sure it was right for us. As queer women we really appreciated how inclusive the process was from start to end.Monica & Abbie
My husband and I would highly recommend Mrs. Gwen Smith as a wedding officiant. She is a warm, caring, professional woman with a wealth of knowledge in many areas involving marriage. She is very flexible and helps involve you in every single aspect of your ceremony, asking your input, and letting you add your tidbits in there as well. She is experienced and will guide you letting you create a ceremony that is your own and is exactly what you always imagined. The quality of service is first class,
The quality of service is first class, without a doubt. She responds to all your emails/calls/texts promptly. Gwen helped us make our special day even more special than we could have ever imagined! I couldn’t picture our ceremony being done any better than she had organized! Thank you Gwen, times a million! Our day was perfect, all thanks to you!Kelsy & Alan
BEST officiant ever!! We had the pleasure of having Erika be our officiant on our big day! We have been with her for 2 years and 2 reschedules, and her communication and understanding is amazing! She rewrote our script when we asked without hesitation, and always made sure we were happy! She is sooo sweet, friendly and lovely to be around.
Erika was super helpful during our rehearsal and gave us such ease of mind before leaving to make sure everything was running smoothly. She gave amazing suggestions and advice. Our script was personalized and beauitful. We had sooo many compliments about Erika throughout the night and after the wedding about how great she was and that was the best wedding and ceremony they ever been to!
She had everyone is smiles, tears and laughter. She knew the moments to step aside to be out of photos. Couldn’t have asked for a better officiant!
Hire Young, Hip & Married, you won’t regret it!! Yes they are a bit more expensive, but you only get married once and they will make sure you have the best ceremony possible! They are worth every penny and more!
Thank you sooo much Young, Hip & Married and a special thank you to Erika!Joanne & TJ
So happy and thrilled we chose them to do our ceremony. We had so many compliments about how fun, funny and engaging the ceremony was from the start to the end. It was exactly what we wanted plus more. I would recommend this to anybody who’s looking for something different than the boring old normal ceremonyKelley & Michael
The biggest thank you goes out to Randy Hamm from Young Hip & Married for helping us prepare for marriage and for making our wedding ceremony a beautiful and personal one. You went above and beyond what we could have ever imagined from an officiant. You made us laugh, cry and entertained our guests. You make our special day such a memorable one!! I would recommend Randy to everyone!
Working with Kadee was so pleasant and professional. We went with the rocking wedding package and were beyond happy with the level of personalization and detail. Kadee worked with us and our loved ones to tell our story and was very accommodating in incorporating some traditional elements into our ceremony. Our ceremony captured our personalities perfectly and went smoothly, beautifully, and was so meaningful to us both! We recommend Kadee and Young Hip and Married to anyone looking for an exceptional experience.Joyce & Johnny
- Shawn Miller was the officiant at my wedding and he was phenomenal. He was easy to communicate with leading up to the wedding and he prepared a thoughtful and energetic ‘script’ for the wedding ceremony. We received so many compliments from wedding guests on the back of our wedding. Young Hip & Married was worth every penny.Brett & Jennifer
- 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 commend them for the exceptional services we received in the midst of the Covid Pandemic 2020!!Lynn & Peter
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
Young Hip and Married was a great choice for our wedding! Our officiant Randy was amazing. We had originally thought we wanted to speed through the ceremony; however, after talking with Randy we realized what a special moment it is not only for us but for our guests. We couldn’t have been happier with how our ceremony turned out and we owe it all to Randy!Shelby & Greg
We had the best experience with Young Hip and Married. Our officiant, Lani, was a perfect fit for us! She met with us early on to get to know us and to understand our vision for the ceremony. She was incredibly enthusiastic and accommodating to our adjustments and plan. She went through everything at the rehearsal (expect our surprise vows to each other, of course!) and trouble-shooted all potential problems so that on the day of our ceremony everything was absolutely perfect. She made us both feel at ease and was just a pleasure to work with! I highly recommend her!!!Jon & Dianna
Bobbi was professional but you felt like you were also talking to a friend. She was lovely!!Beth
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
There simply isn’t enough space to say all the great things I want to say! Shawn was fantastic to work with – the process of creating our ceremony was fun and collaborative and on the wedding day, it showed. We were both thrilled with how it all came together, and our guests are still telling us how much they loved our ceremony and how honest & true it felt to us as a couple. Thank you Shawn for helping make our wedding ceremony a moment to remember.Jeannine
We would highly recommend Young Hip & Married. Our friends booked with them and we did too. Lani was our wedding officiant and she did an amazing job. When we met her, we really liked her warm personality and she had a lot of ideas for the ceremony which helped make it more special. She was very organized during the wedding rehearsal which made everything go smoothly & we all had a lot of fun. Also, on the wedding day everyone was commenting how great she was. Thank you again Lani!!! : )Aiza & Hamed
Our wedding ceremony was perfect! It was personalized to explain us as a couple, and really did just that. Rhona was fantastic! She made our experience very special, and was very helpful and easy to get a hold of. She was very thorough and we really felt that she had an accurate description of us as a couple. She contacted our friends and family for their input as well. We had our guests raving about the ceremony afterwards and how personal and loving it was. We couldn’t have asked for anything more! We highly recommend!Konnor & Jade
WOW – thank you so much for putting together such a beautiful ceremony. It was amazing, perfect, and we feel so fortunate to have had you as our officiant. Your guidance helped Kyle and I create the ceremony of our dreams.Alana & Kyle
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.Malak & Jordan
The best option for a small, tailored wedding! Shawn our officiant was warm and well spoken. Erica, the photographer, was so personable and made us feel comfortable getting our photos taken (neither of us are one for the spot light). Would 100% recommend!
Loved having Young Hip & Married officiate our wedding. Everything was tailored to us and what we wanted. They accommodated our early start time and made us feel so special on our big day. We used their photography services as well. We have not gotten the photos back just yet, but the photographer was such a joy to work with. She made us feel very comfortable and at ease. Neither of us like attention or the spotlight so having Erica and Shawn (photographer and officiant) be so warm and kind made us feel relaxed and free to just be in the moment.Kristin & Kylene
Beth from Young Hip and Married went above and beyond serving as our wedding officiant. She was on the ball with her communication and really personalized our ceremony. She is extremely professional, personable and we would recommend her to any of my friends in need of a wedding officiant.Kathleen & Fabian
So glad we came across this company to marry my husband and I. We loved our officiant, Kadee! She made us feel so comfortable and had a great sense of humor which made the crowd laugh. My husband and I are very happy with how our ceremony turned out. I definitely recommend Young Hip & Married!Amirah & Rusty
Working with Young Hip & Married was excellent from our first inquiry, right away it felt like a good fit. We quickly choose Marilyn and our instincts were right, she was exactly the person we wanted to marry us. Her energy, lovely spirit and all of her efforts to really get to know us made our ceremony so personal and so fun. Our day was beyond perfect for us and we will always treasure getting know Marilyn and having her be part of our day. Thank you so much.Jacqui & Darren
Perfect Experience with Beth, Erica and YH&M!
Once we had decided that we wanted to elope in Vancouver, we started looking at options to do so. As two foreigners, we knew nothing about the legal procedures and who to get in order to elope in Canada. We read tons of blogs and reviews and even contacted a few officiants. What drew us to YH&M, however, was its cool name (I mean, can we at least take a minute to appreciate the name!?) and the overwhelmingly great reviews it had gotten on WeddingWire. We shot them an email and that was it; we were hooked.
We simply love our officiant, Beth. She was nothing but kind and patient with us. She explained to us what we should do step by step and set up a Skype meeting for us to tell her more about our story. I love that when we were trying to set up a time and date for the Skype meeting, she changed the time zone on the calendar to ours so that we’d get a clearer sense of the time. It’s the little things that let us know how much she cared.
Around 2 months before our elopement, a friend of ours who said she could take pictures for us on that day found out she couldn’t make it. Again, we turned to YH&M for help and we were so glad that we did. The staff promptly found Erica for us and we couldn’t be happier. She was kind and professional. Her work on social media looked amazing and we simply couldn’t wait to meet her in person.
Finally, the day of our elopement came and it was everything we hoped for and better. We were a bit nervous at first for we had chosen a rather crowded place to get married (Queen Elizabeth Park), when what we really wanted was to get married in an intimate and quiet corner. Lucky for us, Erica was there early and she immediately recommended this beautiful spot next to a small waterfall. The ceremony itself was lovely and we loved every second of it. Beth was so attentive to details which we could tell by the script she wrote for us.
I highly recommend Beth, Erica and YH&M and we definitely owe them many thanks. As a lesbian couple coming from Asia to get married, they really have helped us make our dreams come true.Jasmine & Freya
Shawn was an incredible officiant. He was warm, responsive, and supportive. He put together a beautiful ceremony for us and helped us write our personal vows. The guests loved it, and we will remember it forever. Highly recommend these folks, they’re wonderful!Grace & Kelsey
I have never been so sincere in writing a review for any service I have used, as I am about to be regarding Young Hip & Married. We are so beyond thankful and appreciative of the amazing, amazing, amazing ceremony their officiant Mark Groleau put together for us! It was SO perfect and so truly captured the essence of our relationship. We have heard nothing but positive feedback from our guests, and literally every single one of them said that he was the best officiant that they had ever experienced and it was the most intimate and sincere wedding they had ever been to.Kate
Bobbi was amazing. She really took the time to get to know us and write a ceremony that was truly us. She was easy to get in contact with and was prompt delivering the ceremony for us to review as we liked. On the day, she was easy-going, charming, and absolutely perfect for the day. I highly recommend Bobbi if you’re getting married, and the services of Young, Hip and Married are tailored to making getting married easySarah
Jef was awesome! He made the ceremony reverent and put in a funny twist to lighten the ceremony. We would highly recommend him.Irene & John
Working with Young Hip and Married made our wedding so smooth and stress free. Last minute we had to move our wedding date up by several months but there were no issues; they really took care of us. Jane and Erica were so wonderful and accommodating; communication was impeccable!Chantal & Taylor
Lise was so amazing and made us so comfortable from day one. Thank you for helping to create a beautiful ceremony that we will remember forever! We had many guests say how awesome and fun the ceremony was. We enjoyed having you marry us so much – we’ll never forget it.Stephanie & Adam
When we decided to get married, we were looking for something unique to commemorate US. The team at Young Hip and Married made it very easy from the get go. They were fun, and made our wedding experience very personal.Eesha & Rajan
We were so happy to have found Young Hip & Married! We wanted a simple beach wedding and they took care of the important things like the officiant & photographer. Service was amazing and we couldn’t be happier with how our wedding day turned out. It was absolutely perfect!Hanna & Tim
My wife and I were lucky enough to have Beth as our officiant for our ceremony. She did such an amazing job matching our style, and telling our story for all of our guests to hear. Beth helped to make our special day even more memorable. Throughout the night I had countless people tell me that it was the best, most personal and memorable ceremony they had ever seen. We can’t thank Beth enough for such a wonderful experience, and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs an officiant.
Thank you so much for such an amazing job. Both Kristina and myself couldn’t be happier with how our ceremony went. You played such an important part, and by adding personal touches regarding our story, you helped all of our guests get to know us in a way that helped to truly showcase what Kristina and I are about. I had so many people (including both my parents) tell me that this was the best ceremony they’ve ever seen. In their own words, each person ended up saying that usually most ceremonies they’ve seen tend to be a boring portion of a wedding that tends to drags on, but that ours was the complete opposite. Everyone loved how you managed to encapsulate our story, while at the same time reflecting a tone and style that matches how Kristina and I are. You helped make everyone laugh, cry, and have an unforgettable experience. Thank you for everything, and most of all, thank you for helping make the day perfect for Kristina.James & Kristina
We were completely thrilled to learn Shawn would officiate our wedding when we first contacted Young Hip and Married! My fiancé and I knew we wanted something a little different, more personal and completely unique for our ceremony and Shawn definitely delivered! We are so pleased with how the whole ceremony went; he created a personalized “story” to start off the ceremony and encouraged and helped us both write out own vows. I will admit I was hesitant with this at first but with Shawn’s guidance and support, I am so happy we did! Shawn helped us make this ceremony our own by helping us arrange a cask tapping – accentuating it with a personalized message relating love, partnership and family…to beer!! He truly was a pleasure to work with and I cannot recommend him and this organization enough. Thank you so much Shawn for helping our wedding visions come to life!!Cassandra
From start to finish the experience with Young Hip & Married was great! Everyone was so nice and really helped to make us feel stress free 🙂Hayle & Jeremy
We eloped with YH&M early May 2018. We chose the package with Sky Helicopters and got married on top of a mountain in Pitt Meadows (unreal). Beth, our officiant, was amazing. She worked with us to create a ceremony perfect for us and made us feel so comfortable from the minute we met. Erica, our talented photographer, captured everything …before we took off, the flight, on the mountain… from the preview we have seen the shots are gorgeous. Tara in the office was so helpful answering ALL of my questions (many of them multiple times) in a timely and informative manner. Highly, highly recommend using Young Hip & Married!Sara
- My husband and I are beyond happy with our decision to have hired Young Hip and Married for our wedding this past May. We had the privilege of having Kristen O as our officiant, and she was amazing. She checked in with us leading up to our wedding. Our ceremony was not the generic boring wedding ceremony I’ve experienced; it was personable and reflected us as a couple. If you are thinking of choosing Young Hip and Married for your wedding, don’t double guess yourself and just do it. It was one of, if not the best decision of our wedding planning process.Kristen, you are amazing! We were so lucky to have you. Thank you so much! Our day was absolutely amazing ♥️♥️ You were fabulous!Shayla Fraser
I definitely recommend Young Hip & Married to officiate any wedding. The gentleman we had was awesome gearing our wedding to us. The company is really awesome at making sure you are comfortable with who they set you up with. They take the time to get to know you as a couple. Our officiant was professional but friendly and flexible.Tammy & Robert
Young Hip and Married made our elopement an amazing experience!! Through covid changes, snow storms and having to postpone multiple times, every step of the way was a breeze. They listened to what we wanted, got to know us and made our day so special. We had Rhona as our officiant and she was the sweetest, and Amber Leigh as our photographer and she had a great eye for detail!! We highly recommend YH&M and the photographer package, it made planning that much easier.Bobbi-Jo & Nathen
Having Young Hip & Married officiate our elopement was extremely easy and fun. Rhona, our officiant, was great! She’s very kind and sincere and Mark and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. We are very happy we chose Young Hip & Married to be part of our special day! Thank you once again!Nicole & Mark
Thank you soooo much for officiating our wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony and we loved your fun and memorable touches. You truly capture who Paul an I truly are which made the event even more personal/intimate.Ada & Paul
My fiancé and I were planning to elope and we were in search of an officiant and photographer in Vancouver. I stumbled across YH&M on the internet and they seemed the perfect fit. We wanted a simple, sweet ceremony sans religious overtones. We hoped to find someone that would reflect our sensibilities -creative/contemporary/cool. Shawn and his wife Erica were perfect!! Since we are from California & unfamiliar with Vancouver, they were extremely helpful in finding where we could procure our marriage license close to the hotel. They were also flexible about our location and allowed us to confirm within 24 hours of the scheduled ceremony. We wanted to visit the site we had chosen via pictures to be certain it was exactly what we wanted. They were on site prior to our scheduled time and ready to go as soon as we were. It was so nice to finally meet them in person after communicating with them via emails. We couldn’t have felt more comfortable! Our ceremony went off without a hitch- we managed to get a couple bicyclists to be witnesses 🙂 Erica stayed with us after the ceremony and we took loads of pictures. She couldn’t be nicer and really put us at ease. We got some great pictures out of the experience that we are free to use as desired. We both felt the value for the service was incredible. We were extremely happy with the entire experience with them, and would highly recommend their services to anyone!!Kathie & Scott
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.
We can’t thank Mark Groleau from Young, Hip and Married enough. We met him and within 2 minutes I knew we had found our wedding officiant. He was SO easy and fun to work with, we knew our wedding ceremony was going to be so unique, fun and meaningful, that’s what we wanted and that’s exactly what we got. Our ceremony truly described our relationship and it was so special, it was definitely one of our favourite things about our wedding day. After our ceremony, so many of our guests told us that they had never seen a ceremony like ours, everyone absolutely LOVED it and thought it was the greatest ceremony they had ever seen at a wedding. We will never, ever forget our ceremony and the amazing story that Mark put together for us, we are truly so grateful for everything that he did and we can’t wait to recommend him to all future couples tying the knot! 🙂Dan & Katie
We had a vague idea of what we wanted at the beginning of the process but Lise got to know both of us and put together something really special. The ceremony was customized for us – she kept it light, heartfelt and humorous (just how we wanted!). She was professional, has a wonderful speaking voice and her warm presence put us at ease. Exceptional job – thank you so much for marrying us! It was so lovely and so, so memorable.Leesa C
We had Beth Carlson-Malena as an officiant and had an unbelievable mountaintop wedding via helicopter. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We highly recommend that anyone who isn’t interested in a traditional wedding do this.Kenneth & Courtney
Absolutely wonderful service. Cory married us an I couldn’t have asked for a better guy. He was funny and laid back just like we wanted. I would recommend Young,Hip and Married to everyone I know. Thank you again fr a great weddingKris
For us, the most important part of the wedding was the ceremony and it was paramount to us to find the right officiant. We wanted a lighthearted ceremony since we knew, our emotions will be running high on that day. It was important to us to tell our story with a touch of humour but elegance. So when we came across YH&M, we really liked what we read (very effective website) and filled out their online form. Next day, we received an email with time options to meet the officiant. We had the pleasure to meet with Shawn Miller and had a great meeting. We felt immediately that with Shawn, we are in good hands. We didn’t even think twice but to hire YH&M. We were so excited, we both felt that it’ll be a great ceremony. What we gathered from our initial meeting was that Shawn is very experienced in his field, he is professional, knowledgable, has a great sense of humor and most importantly is very understanding. We made a few requests that were very important for us to be mentioned during the ceremony. On top of that, Shawn had to be mindful of my medical condition so that everything went smoothly. Yes, my parents were by my side but there were many things that were depending on the officiant and Shawn did an amazing job ensuring that I felt good throughout the entire ceremony, even if he had to do a few uncomfortable things like moving the guests around, rearranging seats, changing timing a bit etc. But he did it with such professionalism that no one felt awkward or uncomfortable. It was a smooth operation. Thank you for that Shawn! I have been to a few weddings and the ceremony has been always dry and impersonal, even though some couples chose their mutual friend to be the officiant so that this doesn’t happen. Our guests thought Shawn is our old friend, and knows us many years. This is the level of experience that he provides. After our initial meeting we filled out an extensive form detailing our wish ceremony style. Sometimes, when you fill out a form, people requesting those don’t read half of it. One thing that stood out for us with Shawn was his attention to detail. I’m very detail oriented and it was so important for me that nothing gets missed, especially during the ceremony. Shawn, paid attention to every detail and we could see that in the ceremony. Not only that, he has given us some valuable advise about certain things that we thought should be otherwise. Thank God we followed his advise. Our ceremony was better than we had envisioned or hoped for. We loved every single bit of it. It was lighthearted, elegant, beautiful, we laughed, we cried, it was 100% us and we felt amazing. Our guests are still talking about it and asked us how we found Shawn. For my husband and I the ceremony was the most magical experience and we are always thankful to Shawn for that. Well, needless to say, we highly recommend Shawn and YH&M to new couples.Liana & Tom
- John & Arwen
- We had such a fabulous experience working with Rhona from Young Hip and Married. We had a bit of a different request as we wanted a dear friend of ours to perform the ceremony. Rhona was nothing but supportive and helpful through the whole process. She provided all we needed to have a successful ceremony and was full of warmth and support the whole way through. Her presence on the big day was a calming one for us, and our friend who was marrying us – we couldn’t have asked for better 💕 With Rhona, you can’t go wrong! Thank you so so much.Melissa & Kevin
So easy and accommodating. The perfect people to help us with our elopement and have little to no stress doing so. I highly recommend their services.Clint & Ashley
We are so glad we chose Young Hip & Married for our elopement. We felt comfortable and at ease from the moment we met Shawn and Erica. The ceremony was beautiful and exactly what we wanted. The photos are incredible too!Rebekah Nelson
- Tina and I wanted to thank all of you for making our wedding happen. It was everything we imagined and the three of you are to thank for that. The process of setting it up was smooth and easy, thank you Tara for dealing with us and getting everything sorted. The ceremony was beautiful, not too long or short, it was perfect and Beth, your words and the way you said them made it so heartfelt. The photos after were a lot of fun to do and Emily you made us relaxed and less awkward than we usually are for photos. (That and the ones we’ve seen are incredible, freaking stunning.)We can’t thank you guys enough for everything; it was the perfect weekend.Young Hip and Married was the best choice we made when planning our elopement. They were easy to work with and the whole team there is full of caring, lively individuals who want to see their clients happily married. I would recommend them to anyone getting married as they offer many different packages and tailor to what you want. We dealt with Tara, Beth (Officiator) and Emily (Photographer) and they went above and beyond.Kirby & Tina
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
Young Hip and Married made our elopement super special! Rebecca sent us this amazing video message when we inquired about arranging our elopement that immediately connected us. Jane provided amazing resources which helped us prepare our vows and felt like she had known us for years. Clint was the photographer they helped to arrange and he was amazing. The photos he captured were perfect for us to commemorate the day and share with family. Despite the impact of the pandemic, the warmth, support, and follow-up by Young Hip & Married made our day truly special. We are so happy that we found them and would highly recommend it for anyone looking to elope or have a wedding ceremony. Thank you!Damon & Andrew
Thank you to Shawn and the team for making our wedding memorable and amazing. We’ve always preferred a more personal touch, and the team was able to totally deliver. We’ve enjoyed the progress and were very pleased with how everything turned out. I’m sorry I’ve only posted this now, but we’re still together since Shawn officiated for us 4 years ago. Thanks a bunch once again!Ichigo Ryu
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.Ken & Taylor
Our wedding ceremony was the absolute highlight of the day for both of us and a lot of our guests. We had so many compliments about it, and about our officiant, Bobbi! My cousin thought Bobbi must have been an old friend of ours seeing as how natural the fit was and how well she represented us. It was so awesome! We also had a lot of people say how they usually want to fall asleep during the ceremony, but not in this case. Honestly we talk about how hiring Bobbi was one of the best things we decided on for our wedding.Emma & Dave
- You were an incredibly important part of our day. Thank you so much for the most perfect ceremony. Your words and the way you led the ceremony was absolutely perfect. It could not have been better. We are very happy and we are so lucky you were a part of our very special day. Truly was magical!!Thank you a million times from both of us and the whole family. We greatly appreciate what you brought to our day.Natalie & Paulius
We just got married in April 2017 by Marilyn Knipp and we couldn’t have asked for a better officiant!! We met Marilyn a few months before the wedding to get to know each other, but it was more like a session to understand yourself better. I learned so much about myself and what I wanted out of my relationship/marriage, as did my husband. Marilyn made us feel totally relaxed and brought us together during a really stressful time in our lives. I felt like she was my long lost mother that I could talk to and feel at ease with 🙂 Marilyn tailored our wedding based on our personalities – we wanted something laid back and fun yet still have the romantic aspect of the ceremony. She also made all our guests feel included and brought good vibes. I’m so happy we chose Marilyn to be our officiant. Thank you for making us laugh and lifting our spirits and overall helping us have the wedding of our dreams!!!Aditi & Keith
Jon at Young Hip & Married was so awesome. An officiant can really make or break a wedding. We wanted the ceremony to be easy going, light hearted, short and sweet. Not stuffy. He did exactly that. He gave the audience a couple of good laughs and practically held our hands when we didn’t know what to say or do. The only thing we knew we wanted was to write our own vows. The reason we chose Young Hip & Married is because you can basically choose exactly what you want to do with them. The problem is, we didn’t have a clue where to start. With Jon, we didn’t have to. He sent us a script and we could edit it any way we wanted. Adding things in, taking things out, etc. We made a few changes back and forth and bam, just like that, it was done. All we had to do was show up! We did the rehearsal and he got all of us uncoordinated, country bumpkins, walking down the aisle like we owned the thing! Thank you Jon for getting our nerves out and making us feel at ease. You rock!Jamie & Kirandeep
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
I thought Shalom was lovely and easy to work with. She was very responsive and did a great job telling the couple’s story. She was very warm and friendly and chatting with the guests beforehand. The ceremony was charming and personal. She did a great job!Margot Bower, Petite Pearl Events
So easy, so good! The Team was great. From first email inquiry to follow ups after the service. With Young Hip and Married’s help, we were able to elope within three days. Jane was amazing and very understanding of what we wanted. Thank you again for all the help and advice.Matt & Ann-Marie
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
We had Young Hip & Married help us with our wedding and they did an awesome job. They were very flexible with organizing a safe way to conduct the ceremony, considering the ongoing complications of COVID-19, and were great to deal with throughout the entire process. Can’t say enough good things about our officiant, Lani, as well. She delivered on all our requests for the ceremony, from managing the duration of it to noting all the highlights of the relationship we had asked her to. We’ll be recommending Lani and the Young Hip & Married group to all our friends getting married in the future. Thanks again!Nolan & Tina
Lauren was an absolutely fantastic officiant for our special day! We honestly couldn’t have been more pleased. Her words felt so authentic and from the heart and her demeanour was so calming and yet excited at the same time….the perfect balance!Tina & Jamie
- Huge thank you for marrying us!!!!!! I was hopeful for a personal, casual and totally us experience and you delivered that and more so thank you very much. We appreciated your patience/kindness with the slight delay, no pressure, and it was so great that you celebrated with us and had a glass of champagne after. You never felt rushed. We laughed through out the vows; I loved that we were able to help with them in advance yet you added thoughtful messages during the ceremony. It was perfect, all of it, thank you!Joey & Jason
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
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
I first connected with Young Hip and Married in August 2019 to book the Helicopter Elopement Package for April 8, 2020. I was floored with their quick response even though my date was still 8 months away! During the unraveling of Covid-19, our communication remained impeccable during such a stressing time; we were given weekly updates up until our province lockdown and we had to postpone with SKY Helicopters. Because we had no clue when life would resume to normal again, Shawn (our officiant) was determined to still make our special day happen since the date was sentimental to us. We were so touched! We followed the strict social distancing protocols and his words were so personalized and touching, I happy-cried throughout the whole ceremony. Also, our photographer, Erica Miller, offered a complimentary photography session which was awesome! We are so grateful for the commitment and hard work Young Hip and Married showed us, especially during this crazy time we’re all going though.Linda & Tony
- Our wedding was better than we imagined. Denise and Emily played a huge part in that. Despite a couple of hiccups with some guests arriving late and slight change in location of the ceremony, Denise and Emily were so gracious and helpful. Thanks guys for making our dream wedding a reality!!Milena & Jordan
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
Jef was fantastic! We couldn’t be happier with how our ceremony turned out. Jef and YH&M were professional, organized, and took the time to personalize our ceremony.Andrew & Rainhard
We were married May 13th, 2017 in Stanley Park and it was a wonderful experience. Shawn at Young Hip & Married is a fantastic officiant. The ceremony was exactly what we were looking for: relaxed, easy and fun. The photographer, Erica Miller was AMAZING. The photos turned out better then we expected. I would definitely recommend YH&M.Jodie LaFleur
What a wonderful experience!! Everyone was so awesome during the entire process. Very responsive to emails with all my questions since we were traveling to BC from Missouri. Thank you for making our day awesome!Bobbie & Rob
- Thank you for everything! Our wedding was incredible and we can’t thank you and our vendors enough! Especially when those dark clouds rolled in and the tornado warning came on the TV! But regardless of the quick downpour, we had the most amazing day and it was everything we could have dreamt of and more. We have received a lot of lovely feedback about your officiating and we couldn’t agree with everyone more about how great you were 🙂Caitlin & Jordan
Jane was an absolute joy to work with. On the day of the wedding, she made us feel reassured throughout the day by being capable, clear and made us laugh at the right times to ease our nerves. The service was everything we defined at the beginning–short, fun and meaningful. We also did pre-marriage counseling with her, which I recommend doing. Our sessions brought a couple things to light that were helpful to talk through before our big day. Jane is a smart, funny, all around wonderful person whose intuitive nature makes her the perfect person to officiate your wedding.Matt & Meghan
- Excellent experience, very personable and professional!Dorothy & Sandro
My wife and I got married about 3 weeks ago by Young Hip and Married! We were very happy with the experience we had with this company! Their response was always very fast and super friendly! On the day, Beth was our officiant and Erica was our photographer. They were so fun to work with; we can’t recommend them enough.Meredith & Sarah
We had Shawn as our wedding officiant and absolutely loved our ceremony! It was so special and intimate. It was all so stress-free as well. We got to meet Shawn in person, and we had a chance to go over the entire ceremony before the wedding. Loved everything about this company!Ashley & Toby
Jodi officiated our wedding at Fraser River Lodge in Agassiz and from first contact to saying goodbye at the end of our wedding day, she was amazing. I would highly recommend YH&M to anyone planning their wedding. Jodi really took the time to get to know us and make the ceremony special and unique to our style. Don’t balk at the price; they’re worth every penny.Jeremy & Hillary
Booking an officiant was really easy and Jodi did a good job of doing the sort of service we wanted. We had a small, more laid back day and she kept that mood going for our ceremony.
Young Hip and Married were really easy to book and coordinate things with. We had some changes early on in planning and they were very accommodating with that. Jodi did a great job of keeping the ceremony relaxed.Martine & Sean
YH&M connected us with Anthony Does to officiate our wedding ceremony in Toronto. Anthony put together a short and very sweet personal service for us — with ample opportunity to make any tweaks we desired. On top of that, Anthony’s ceremony execution couldn’t have been any better. Thanks again!Lori Rose
My wife and I could not be happier with our experience with Young Hip and Married. Everyone involved was amazing, and were more than happy to help us accomplish our dream day. Our officiant, Peter, was unbelievable! It turned out we had a lot in common including some mutual acquaintances. He took the time to get to know us both personally and wrote us the most beautiful and personal ceremony. If we could give ten stars it wouldn’t be enough to express our gratitude to the YHM team. Blessings and gratitude to you all!Chris & Kim
We cannot thank Shawn enough for his personal touch to our elopement ceremony. It genuinely felt like he was feeling all the emotions of our special moment right along with us, and we had never met before our ceremony outside of a few excited email exchanges. Our witnesses could not believe the care and emotion emitted from someone who had never met us. We really appreciate the beautiful words, it is a moment we will remember forever because he cares so much. Anyone who has the opportunity to have Shawn participate in any kind of celebration is truly lucky!Amanda Banks
When Brian and I got engaged, one of the first things we did was hire an officiant from YH&M. We watched all the video bios and chose Jane as our officiant for the big day!
We wanted out ceremony to be light and fun, while also being sincere and heartfelt. Basically, we wanted it all! And boy, did Jane deliver! There were giggles & tears, with a side of nerdiness. It was perfect.
Everyone that attended our ceremony was able to tell how much work Jane had put into actually getting to KNOW us. We’re proud and happy to say that our ceremony was not generic. It was unique, just like us! Star Wars references and all!
We would recommend Young Hip and Married in a heartbeat! Words are not enough to express the magic that these people create! 🙂Mellie + Brian
Exceeded expectations. It genuinely felt like we were the most important couple that were working with, and the care, and the extra touches and input they added made our day that much more special. Our officiant Lise put so much time and effort into our ceremony, spending the time to get to know us, and what was important to us, she really tailored everything to us so well. Will happily recommend.Jordan & Peter
My wife and I are wedding photographers, and as such we get the opportunity to work with a LOT of different wedding officiants! Rarely do we get the opportunity to work with someone as engaging and genuine as Shawn Miller from Young Hip & Married. His enthusiasm is plain to see, and he has a way of creating an intimate vibe with the wedding guests. Many officiants are not able to get an audience’s cooperation when requesting an unplugged ceremony, but Shawn had a way of requesting it that made guests feel more involved, and it made for a lively and captivating ceremony wherein the guests did not miss their devices. We look forward to the opportunity to work with Shawn again, or any of the other YH&M officiants, as I’m sure they all exhibit the same standard of care! Thank you Shawn, for creating a beautiful ceremony for us to photograph. And for looking like a bit of a rock star in the pics! – Matt of Pebble & Pine PhotographyMatt Neumann
Young, Hip and Married was a great company to work with – from the initial inquiry to the final follow up, they really care about making the process easy and fun! I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone getting married!!
Cory Dueck was the best officiant we could have asked for!!
We received so many compliments on our style of ceremony and specifically our choice of officiant – one of my girlfriends has already sworn she will hire him when she gets married!
Cory took the time to get to know us and really made our ceremony reflect who we are as a couple. It was an absolute pleasure working with him! My wedding planner even said he was the best officiant she had ever worked with, and that she would be recommending him to future brides! Cory, you ROCK!!!Jessica Wrinskelle
Young hip and married, owned by a wonderful couple will listen to what you want and bend over backwards to make it happen! They want this experience to be truly what you dreamt of. Personally, I went with them specifically because they would meet me anywhere in Vancouver I desired. I picked Stanley park which made the ceremony and photos even more memorable. If all you want is to run away and elope, they are the crew for you. These people made my dreams come true!Jayd & Cody
Oh my goodness Chris-Ann was the best officiant ever and we had the best ceremony! Thank you thank you thank you! Also you guys were sooo accommodating throughout all the changes for our wedding over Covid. You guys are so wonderful, thank you!Laura & Benn
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
Erika and the team at Young Hip & Married were excellent. Highly recommended.Jeremy Clark
What a wedding!!
I’ve had SO many people that night and even still now telling me HOW AMAZING our officiant was!
You did such a great job that I can’t express the words! You made the best ceremony for us. It’s still a dream to be that has came to reality 🙏🏼💛Jordanna & Justin
Shawn did an amazing job with our ceremony! We had to make a lot of adjustments to our original plan due to Covid restrictions and Shawn was so accommodating! We could not have been happier to have YH&M and Shawn be a part of our big day! We could not be happier!Cassandra & Michael
We found Young Hip & Married in 2021 when we were considering an elopement package. When 2022 rolled around and we decided to have an in-person wedding we decided to reach out to them again. And we’re so happy we did!
Through YH&M we found both our wedding officiant, Rhona Segarra, and our wedding photographer, Clint Bargen. Both were absolutely the best! We met with them online first and decided to work together because our values really synced up with theirs.
Rhona was very sweet and was totally prepared when the time came. She was able to keep us calm and grounded so that we could be present and enjoy the moment. Many of our guests commented that the words she chose were very moving. And that she smiled and seemed to really enjoy the ceremony.
Clint takes wedding photography to a whole other level! Not only did he take beautiful pictures that captured the moment he also helped us through each moment throughout the day. He’s been to more weddings than we have and was a dedicated guide. We didn’t know how to do the ceremonial cake cutting and Clint took over and gave some simple instructions so we felt comfortable in front of our gather family and friends.
If we had to do it all again, we wouldn’t change a thing.Colin & Janet
I’m so glad I reached out to Young Hip & Married. They made the whole process very simple and hassle free. Our wedding officiant was Erika and she was so nice to work with. Highly recommended!Alvin & Akemi
Erika was our officiant and I cannot say enough good things about her; she was incredible. She made everything so comfortable and easy for everyone it felt like I had known her forever. She was extremely prompt with communication and any edits I had to the writing were changed immediately without any problems. She was there for the rehearsal which was wonderful and was able to tell everyone where to go and run though it all which was a huge relief. The writing was wonderful – short and sweet but was also packed with a ton of emotion and meaning. She really took our story and made it personal (which was exactly what we asked for). Everyone was laughing and crying and everyone had something good to say about Erika. Highly recommend to anyone.Maria & Nigel
I would highly reccomend Shawn and YH&M for your ceremony. It was deeply personal and our story was the focal point of the ceremony. We have received countless compliments about our ceremony and many wondered how many years Shawn had known us. Beautifully done and we would choose them every time.Eric
We’ve had such a positive experience with YH&M. Our officiant was Kristen and we couldn’t have been more lucky than to be matched up with her. She personalized our ceremony in a way that was unique to us and incorporated all the aspects that we found important. She was calm and reassuring, a great resource for information, and was extremely organized and direct with her instructions (which made us feel more comfortable with something that could have been way more nerve wracking!). Such a pleasure to work with!Ashley & Patrick
Mark Groleau was our officiant for our wedding at Steamwistle in Toronto in September, and simply put he was incredible.
Our meetings with him were direct, comfortable, and honest. We had a non-religious ceremony and after our initial discussions he was able to identify the exact correct tone for us.
We were so happy with the way it turned out: it felt honest, personal, as if we had been friends with him for years. We couldn’t have imagined it being better, and that’s a huge testament to him and the work he did.
Now this was our wedding day so we were obviously biased as to its overall success, but we weren’t the only ones who felt that way: in almost every single recounting of the wedding by friends and family Mark was mentioned as standing out, something that made the day as great as it was and above and beyond a ‘normal’ wedding.
We highly recommend Mark. He is awesome!!!Steve & Ashley
- We were so happy to have you take part in our wedding day! We both really loved the words you spoke. You are so kind and have the perfect demeanour for this. You make everyone feel so comfortable and calm. Thanks again for everything!Jess & Raad
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
They have an amazing team. Made our intimate wedding very special and stress free. Great price too 🙂Sarah & Zachary
Super flexible and responsive! We had Erika as our officiant and we had an enjoyable experience from start to finish. She was very responsive the entire process and super flexible with any changes we had, would definitely recommend!Alison & Faris
These guys were amazing from the start. Very professional and accommodating when we changed our location. Our officiant, Rhona, was so lovely and really helped to make our wedding a great day. I’m so impressed with how professional this company is.
These guys were amazing from start to finish. Thank you!Michelle & Glen
We are so thankful we went with Young, Hip and Married for our wedding day. Jane was an awesome officiant and made the day very special and Emily the photographer went above and beyond. Thanks again to everyone at Young, Hip and Married for making our day unforgettable.Jenn + Matt
- Ron and I feel that words can truly not express our gratitude for you in making our day truly special. We both feel so lucky to have had you officiate our intimate wedding — you exceeded our expectations, chatting with you over the phone beforehand made a huge difference. You were so efficient in coordinating and leading us throughout the ceremony. Thank you for being so accommodating when it came to our ceremony and readings!Ron and I are so, so grateful that you officiated our union so beautifully. Thank you from our hearts!Maria & Ron
We really liked the concept of this company and definitely wanted to stay away from a long, boring, templated wedding ceremony. We hired Shawn as our officiant and he was excellent! He met with us a couple of times to get to know us and what we were looking for in our ceremony. He also gave us separate forms to fill out to find out about our personal thoughts on our relationship. In the end, he came up with a very nice, unique story of our relationship to share with our wedding guests. Our guests got to learn more about us as a couple. He also directed our rehearsal ceremony in a very fun, but organized and structured way which is difficult when there are so many people involved. We wrote our own vows and Shawn gave us a lot of advice on how to create them. Shawn was very good at communicating with us and provided the perfect ambiance for our young, hip wedding ceremony. We strongly recommend looking into this company for a similar experience. Shawn met all of our expectations.Jillian & TJ
YH&M was excellent to work with. We were very, very happy with our officiant, Kadee. She made a fantastic ceremony for us. We would recommend the company highly.Graeme & Cinting
We cannot say enough about the team at Young Hip & Married! Our officiant Jane was fabulous and made our ceremony one to remember! They made us feel at ease and so comfortable. It was a slightly rainy day in Stanley Park when we said our I do’s but we didn’t care. Both Jane and our lovely photographer Erica were both so happy to be there sharing in our moment which made our day even more special. I would recommend them over and over to anyone wanting a simple elopement or something more. Thank you Jane and Erica and thank you Young Hip & Married for making our day so special!Tania & Michael Cox
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
YH&M were an absolute delight to work with. There was great and fast communication between us throughout the planning process. Our officiant, Kristen, was very approachable and quick to understand how we wanted our ceremony to be. We had a small elopement with just 2 witnesses. On the day of, she made us feel very comfortable, made us laugh, and the ceremony was exactly how we wanted it to be. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We went with the elopement + photography package and our assigned photographer, Erica, was very pleasant and helpful in directing the shots. We can’t recommend YH&M enough! Thanks for everything.Mark & Danai
We’re so happy that Young Hip and Married exist! Everything was great from inquiry to ceremony. We are so lucky to have Jane Halton as our officiant and John Bello as our Photographer. Thank you so much Rebecca for making this happen.Redmond & Luigi
We booked Lani for our wedding this June and she did an amazing job of putting together a ceremony for us that made everyone attending feel involved, while still making it personal for us. She was extremely accommodating with us, changing her schedule around so that she could attend our wedding rehearsal, and we both found her super fun to work with!Megan & Robert
We had Lani perform our ceremony at Estate 248 (with Pop Up Weddings) back on Sept 24th and she was AMAZING!! ! It was honestly one of the best parts of the day. We had so many people comment on how it was the best ceremonies they had ever been part of and it was as if she had known us for years! It was so thoughtful and mindful and fit us so perfectly! Everyone felt connected which was so important to us. Her funny, friendly and upbeat personality made everyone so relaxed and comfortable. My dad kept going on about how great she was haha. It was a perfect mix of fun and formal. She created such a relaxed environment that she made doing our vows (which we were both nervous about) easy! We couldn’t possibly thank her enough!Sam
Had an amazing experience with young, hip and married. Could not recommend them enough! Lani was our officiant and she made our ceremony so personalized to us as a couple. We absolutely loved her.Ashley Hall
We couldn’t be happier with booking Young Hip & Married. Shawn was the officiant for us and he was amazing. He really was able to capture us and have our ceremony reflect who we are. We had so many compliments from our guests about how much they enjoyed listening to him. He was able to really capture our guests and make the ceremony fun. Thank you so much for all the hard would you put in to making it a special time for us.Tamara Turner
As many can relate, organizing a wedding (no matter the size) can be quite a daunting task, including finding a great officiant. We are incredibly happy we stumbled upon YHM, as they provided us with quick and the uttermost smooth service, and hooked us up with a fantastic officiant! Shawn went above and beyond what we expected, and allowed us to have a wonderful moment in life at a beautiful location. Definitely recommend them, as their pricing is very fair too.Pavel & Yuki
I recommend Young Hip and Married. The experience far exceeded expectations and they made it perfect for our special day and situation (covid… our kids only). Thanks for facilitating and enhancing our wedding… which is now a great life memory.Luke & Nicole
After Covid-19 canceled our wedding plans, we decided to get married anyway, and planned an elopement in just a couple of months. Young Hip and Married was easy to work with on a tight timeline. Our officiant, Chris-Ann Lake, had no problem traveling to our fairly remote location. She was warm and friendly and felt like someone we would like to hang out with- not just a random stranger from an internet search. While I’m hoping to never need a wedding officiant again, I’d definitely recommend their services to anyone else.Emily & Chris
- Lauren was incredible, we could not have asked for a better person to be our officiant! She did an amazing job capturing my partner’s and my energy and intentions for one another. All of our guests could not get over how perfect she was and how she made the ceremony that much more special. The day would not have been the same without her. Thank you again!Anne-Emilie & Eleen
They helped us to have a wedding that felt special and personal. There were also a lot of shifts in our plans, and they were incredibly accommodating. Can’t recommend them enough!Jordan & Megan
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
From the beginning, everyone at Young Hip and Married was fun, easy and quick at getting back to me and putting me in touch with Jonathan M. The entire process was uncomplicated and flowed so nicely. Jonathan was truly amazing. We worked with him via Skype leading up to the day and it was perfect and felt like we knew him forever. Jonathan was funny and the whole ceremony was personal and perfect beyond words. We haven’t stopped receiving compliments from our friends and family. Thank you so much Jonathan – we love you ! And thank you to the whole team!Joanna & Matthew
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
Kadee Smedley from Young Hip & Married did an AMAZING JOB as our officiant. She was responsive to our emails during the planning phases, she wrote us a wonderful introduction to our vows that really captured our love and who we were. While we did not meet in person until the actual day, we could not have been more pleased with her services. She even found our parents to get their information for the license while we were getting our photos taken! She printed up our vows so we did not have to worry about getting them to the ceremony. We had a zero stress experience working with her and would highly recommend her and Young Hip & Married to anyone in search of an officiant!Sybil & Jason
Cory Dueck in Vancouver was the officiant for our wedding. I would recommend him to anyone wanting more from the typical officiant experience. He puts the time in to get to you know you, provides a calming positive energy before hand and is super entertaining and great on the day of (great for same day edits/videos). 5 stars!Trevor Nakanishi
We had such a great experience with Beth, Clint, and the whole Young Hip & Married team for our small elopement this summer. We originally just booked the elopement package as we had our own photographer, but when plans with our own photographer fell through, the team at YH&M were quick to find us a replacement photographer even though our wedding date was just weeks away. Our officiant Beth took the time to ask questions about our relationship and incorporate our answers into a customized ceremony script. She even accommodated our request to include our secret handshake into the ceremony. It was perfect!
Our photographer Clint was awesome to work with. He was professional but casual and friendly in a way that made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. He had great ideas for poses and photo locations, and we never felt awkward in front of the camera. We are so glad we booked with Young Hip & Married and would highly recommend them. Thank you for taking care of everything and making our special day so memorable!Andrea & Paul
- We wanted to say thank you so much for your help and patience.We had a great experience with Young Hip & Married and especially with you, Rich!Rich, you were an awesome officiant for us and did such a great ceremony! We really enjoyed every second of it. You found great words even though we didn’t really know each other. But it was just perfect! We just couldn’t have had a better day.Damaris & Tim
We wanted to express our sincere thanks for the most wonderful, exclusive wedding anyone could wish for. Thank you Erica and Shawn for sharing our special moment.Neena & Harjinder
We had a very small and intimate ceremony with Peter LaGrand as our officiant. He was just what we had hoped. He made things simple and we felt calm and relaxed on our special day. We would definitely recommend YHM!Klemen & Sara
We got married August 13, 2016 and chose Cory Dueck from Young Hip and Married to be our wedding officiant. We can say without hesitation that this is one of the best decisions we made. The ceremony was the most important part of the day to us. Cory took the time to meet us and was genuinely excited to get to know us and hear about our love story. He created a personal, emotional and heartfelt ceremony for us. When we think about our day, the emotions during the ceremony stand out to us the most. We’ve had people tell us it was the most emotional ceremony they’ve ever been to. Cory was truly invested in making our day special and memorable. (My bridesmaids and I would especially like to thank Cory for his foresight, suggesting that we stand on the opposite side during the wedding ceremony so we weren’t blinded by the sun). Cory-from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. You have united us as man and wife and we are forever thankful for this. We hope to stay in touch. Josh and Jennifer WilkinsonJosh & Jennifer
We wanted to thank Kristen for helping to create a truly memorable ceremony for us. We had an awesome day filled with love, laughter, and wonderful memories. Kristen set the tone for what turned out to be a day filled with many blessings. We hope that the success of her 30-year marriage will rub off on us.Mike & Joanne
We are happy for the good service of Stephen. I will recommend him to everyone! Thank you 😊 for your service 👍🏻🥳🎉🥂Andre & Johane
We had a fantastic little wedding and the best officiant imaginable. We are a seasoned couple and “young and hip” at heart and loved the service we received. With COVID and having to re-arrange our date last minute, plus considering all things that were going on, Young Hip & Married was very accommodating, understanding and were able to find us an officiant for the exact date and time we were looking for. Not just an officiant, but an awesome one! Layne our officiant made our day very special and fun. We sure enjoyed the way he personalized our ceremony and had a few laughs and tears of joy throughout our little celebration. We could have not wished for a better person to get us married. If you are young & hip or young & hip at heart we highly recommend and thank Young Hip & Married as well and especially Layne Kilbreath!Alexa & Ken
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
I can’t express how much I recommend this company. From the first email to the wedding itself and everything in between, they have been friendly, helpful and all around amazing. My husband and I wanted to do something absolutely different and wild, asking 9 of our close friends to hike Dog Mountain on Seymour at sunrise to witness us get married. When I wrote the email to Young Hip & Married about what we envisioned our wedding day to look like, they didn’t even hesitate to accommodate our insane request. Our wedding was perfect! I can’t thank Shawn enough for waking up at 3:00am, meeting us on the mountain at 4:15am and hiking to the lookout with all of us. This gratitude we feel can’t be put into words. Good on you for creating such an amazing company! Obviously our crazy wedding has caught some attention amongst our peers and I’ve been singing the highest praises about Young Hip & Married! Use them! They’re the best!Caitlin & Christophe
Curt was absolutely amazing, and we were so thrilled to have him officiate our wedding! Curt was personable, accommodating and very supportive of our plans for the wedding. His ability to customize and personalize his speech to our story was outstanding and he really made this a collaborative experience. Thank you, Curt, for giving us such an amazing memory that we will hold on to forever!Cameron & Jacqueline
Rhona was an amazing officiant. She has such a loving and warm energy and was really easy to work with. She helped make our special day even more special! I do recommend going for the option with the rehearsal. It will make all the difference.Aldo & Kristal
My fiancee and I were in a predicament – we wanted to elope on a short notice in a foreign country with little-to-no knowledge of the area. I stumbled upon Young Hip and Married and was astounded by their incredible budget friendly options and flexibility. They offered a service that was notably absent in my internet searches – a quaint yet curated elopement package. Our officiant, John M., was incredible – he dealt with our last minute planning and gave us insight into a process we were completely new to. Our ceremony was short, beautiful, and exactly what we wanted. The whole process could not have been more enjoyable and helpful – I highly recommend them!Page Redding
We couldn’t be happier with our experience with Young, Hip & Married. Shawn is extremely thorough and professional. He is easy to communicate with and perfectly captured the tone we wanted to set for our ceremony. Highly, highly recommended!Jillian Oliver
We were married on Sept 1, 2018 at 3 Sisters Winery in Penticton and Randy officiated our wedding. The ceremony could not have been better. The crowd was really engaged the whole time and we had several guests tell us how wonderful the ceremony, and in particular the officiant, was. He really personalized the ceremony by reaching out to family and friends beforehand and he had both of us, bride and groom, relaxed and laughing during the ceremony. We would 100% recommend Randy to anyone looking for an officiant.Stephen & Lexy
Never in my wildest dreams did I think a wedding ceremony could be so much fun. I’m talking, grinning and laughing so much that there’s not a single elegant photo of me from the time I got to the top of the aisle to the moment I kissed my groom, I mean husband. Of course a lot of that had to do with my fantastic, best ever partner, but, SO much of it also had to do with Lonnie. He knew how to make the two of us shine.
Lonnie takes the time to hear your story, and to get to know you. Once he’s got your vibe, he can guide you, giving you samples and ideas that suit your style, and helps you craft your unique ceremony. Spend some time socializing with him and his husband, and consider it an investment in your wedding day, because the better he gets to know you, the more intimate your big day is going to feel. And do NOT be surprised if he becomes a lifelong friend: that’s the kind of man he is.
Thank you Lonnie, from the bottom of our hearts, for making our wedding an evening of pure and utter crazy joy.Martin & Inge
I was referred to Young Hip & Married by my amazing photographer. YH&M were super friendly, quick & responsive to all of my questions. We got Erika Enns as our officiant & we couldn’t be any happier. She worked with us to make some small tweaks for the script to make it fit ‘us’ better. She even made recommendations for places for our engagement photos & took the time to get to know us on a more personal note.
On the day of, she met us early in the parking lot & we got to walk down to our ceremony spot together. Erika took her time & let us enjoy the moment knowing that it’s passing by so quickly. Erika was was very loving & personable it really made our ceremony smooth & effortless. Would recommend Erika for sure!Leslie & Tony
We used YH&M for our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made for our ceremony. Randy was super friendly and personable and was willing to meet at times and places that were convenient for us. He worked to make our ceremony unique and incorporated our personalities and our story into it. Many of our guests made comments on how much they liked Randy. We would definitely recommend YH&M to anyone who wants to make sure their wedding ceremony is perfect!Braden & Elisha
Bobbi was our officiant for our elopement and she showed up early, she was professional and flexible. She made our day very special and was so personable. The website for Young, Hip and Married was a useful resource and help us with our vows.Denise
What an incredible ceremony! Bobbi truly made our ceremony unique, fun and fabulous. Would not have changed a thing!!Jennifer
We had been exploring different wedding ideas for 12 years and decided that an elopement would be perfectly us. Nearly overwhelmed by the organizing, I found Young Hip & Married online. Communication was prompt with the positive attitude of “oh yes we can!” Our Officiant Brian Pankratz was really good at listening to our story and tailoring a script. Everything was organized within 10 days and we loved our wedding! Thank you Young Hip & Married❤️Lisa & Brent
- We could not have been happier with Erika and the entire team at YH&M. Everything went perfectly, it was easy to talk to everyone handling all the details and when the day finally came, Erika went above and beyond to make everything just as we had hoped it would turn out. She was compassionate and we’re so grateful that she helped us through something we had hoped would never be stressful. Couldn’t thank this team anymore, and would absolutely highly recommend them to anyone!Reese & Mikah
Peter was great!! He was very attentive and flexible. Peter was very accommodating as we were running a bit behind and had to change our elopement time. THANK YOU:)Louise & Rosemary
- We had the best experience with Jane throughout the entire process of creating our ceremony details! Jane was simply the best and so easy to work with, and made the entire experience that was stressful in our minds, so fun and creative. She did a fantastic job with the Persian ceremony as well that we got so many wonderful feedback from our guests. Thank you Jane for everything, it was so great working with you!Sherry & Wojtek
Our wedding day was such a special, memorable day for us. I don’t think either of us has every been so happy! Thank you so much for making the ceremony what it was. It was perfectly us and exactly what we had hoped for. – Matt & MarinaMatt & Marina
Beth listened, she took the time to get to know us and made the ceremony beautiful. She brought in just enough personal touches, including recommending ways for family stuck across the country to participate. She seamlessly incorporated scripture with funny moments from our relationship and truly made it feel like a longtime friend was conducting our ceremony. We were beyond thrilled with the ceremony and the services of Young Hip and Married. Amazing people, would recommend to anyone.Awss & Katie
Kadee, thank you so much for being the perfect officiant for our magical, garden wedding this past weekend. We absolutely loved your enthusiasm for our wedding plans right from our first meeting at Delany’s in Edgemont and this continued right through to everything you did during our special day – to make it so very memorable. We absolutely would be thrilled to recommend you and Young Hip and Married to anyone that we know that’s getting married anytime soon. Warmest regards and a big hug from Jenny and I!Ian & Jenny
It was purely an amazing experience. Shawn definitely sets the mood and experience we seriously couldn’t ask for more. If you to-be newlyweds are looking for a unique, warm experience and if the support and words from an officiant are important to your day then please share your wedding with them! You won’t regret it!Kat & Corey
Booking with Young Hip and Married was super easy. Rebecca was very communicative and responded to my million questions prior to booking. On the day of, Shalom was a joy to work with! We were running a bit behind schedule but Shalom made me feel relaxed and calm when the ceremony kicked off. Her script was perfect for our micro ceremony and it was exactly what we wanted for a wedding.Jean & Kyle
We heard about Young Hip & Married through our photographer. Since we had family traveling very far to come see us get married, we wanted the ceremony to be a bit longer and more intimate. Shawn Miller was our officiant and was perfect. We were able to collaborate with him and tailor our ceremony to fit our personalities. His words were beautiful, and we couldn’t have asked for a better guy to of the job.Jaimie Krzynski
Planning our elopement in Vancouver with the help of Jane and the rest of the YH&M Team was flawless, stress-free and so simple. If you are considering booking your elopement with them, stop considering and book NOW. Our wedding day would not have been the same without them.
Jane was prompt in responding to emails, gave incredible advice for locations and was professional and lovely during our ceremony. It felt as though we had known her personally for a long time.
The YH&M Team has streamlined elopement ceremonies and we would recommend this a million times over! This is a decision you just can’t regret. Thank you for making our day the most amazing day of our lives!Cindi & Nate
Beth was our wedding officiant and she did such an amazing job telling our story. Her energy was amazing and brought such good humour to our relaxed casual wedding. I highly recommend Beth!
We sent in a request for more information and within 24 hours, received a personalized video. They introduced themselves, congratulated us, and answered our questions. By the next day, they had arranged for an officiant on our special day. We were sent the details of what our ceremony would look like. Lauren showed up early even though traffic was a nightmare. She brought formal shoes and sneakers to help her on the trails in Lighthouse Park. She made us feel comfortable and shared a few laughs with us. We found her to be just delightful. We were glad that we choose YHM and would definitely recommend them to all of our friends as they approach their own weddings.Trevor & Joy
- Our officiant (Courtney) was punctual, communicative, and made the process easy for us. We definitely recommend using YH&M!Hunter & Stacey
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
Had a really wonderful experience with YHM. They were flexible and responsive right from day one, and made our quick and casual wedding dreams a reality. With last minute changes they were open and willing to help and when our helicopter was canceled they ensured to keep us informed and up to date. Highly recommend.Hannah & Jason
Lani made our wedding extra special. In fact we would not have been able to get married without her. All we knew was that we were in love and wanted to get married in a park. She helped us have a wedding more amazing than we could have ever imagined.
One of the best choices we made for our wedding was booking Shawn! He was absolutely phenomenal!!! He created an incredible ceremony for us – it was unique and fit us perfectly. Not only were we blown away by him but all of our guests spoke so highly of the ceremony! We highly recommend Shawn to anyone considering Young Hip & Married for their wedding!Kaetlyn Ratzlaff
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
- We couldn’t have asked for a better experience with a wedding officiant. Shawn from YH&M was absolutely amazing. Highly recommend this company. Not only will they marry you however you want, they are great, down to earth people. The best of the best!Sophia Milette
- We worked with Erika Enns at YHM for our wedding in July 2022, and honestly wouldn’t have asked for a more perfect ceremony. With just a phone call and questionnaire, Erika worked her magic to create the most personal, engaging and totally authentic ceremony. She totally understood what we were looking for, and managed to create something hugely emotional without any cliches, cringe or cheesy moments. Every one of our guests commented on how personal the ceremony felt, and how different it was to so many weddings they’d attended in the past. Erika and Jackie-Deane were a dream to work with, and made the whole process totally seamless. We couldn’t have asked for anything more – thank you so much!Livvy & Hugo
Everything from the planning to the wedding day went so smoothly. Our wedding day was perfect!! Jane was fabulous and so easy to work with!! Would highly recommend!!Kylie & Andrew
We had a very quick elopement (15min + 45min photo shoot) on a local beach outside of Vancouver. Shawn, our officiant, and Erica the photographer were awesome. Everything went smoothly, Shawn was a great speaker even though he had never met us, and Erica was very casual to work with afterwards for our photo shoot. We were lucky enough to have both of them available for our date with only about 2 months notice. Thanks guys!Andrew & Tara
We’re a second time mature couple with 6 kids between us ages 16 to 23. We met with Peter La Grand and shared our love story. He made note of every detail including getting to know our family and friends via Facebook and email. We shared that there were some doubters, judgemental individuals who want what we have. He knocked it out of the park AKA CHURCH ! Those people were gob smacked. Subtle, classy and yet made a statement. Humour, romance and tradition was our design and Peter delivered. See you again, Peter we will be in touch!Deborah & Scott
We loved working with Young Hip & Married! Everyone we met along the way was kind and helpful, and I truly felt that they wanted us to find the very best fit of officiant for us.
And they did! Erika was amazing. She is warm and friendly and worked hard to make sure she captured the vibe we wanted for our wedding. We were looking for short and sweet, but still meaningful and heartfelt. Her words were inspiring and funny, and her delivery was wonderful. I definitely felt a calmness having her there.
The whole team delivered exactly what we wanted, and made sure we understood the process and what was needed of us every step of the way. Super easy to work with and would definitely recommend!Laura & Zac
Our officiant was Beth and she was a fantastic. She captured exactly what we wanted for our wedding. Everybody attending the event thought Beth was a friend of ours acting as an officiant. She captured our sense of humour and individual preferences very well. It was funny, heartfelt, and professional. Beth took the time to be sure all names were pronounced correctly and she was on time and ready to go as planned. We have nothing else than kind words and gratitude for Beth for making our wedding an amazing event.Jorgelina & Liza
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
I wouldn’t change a thing! There’s not many brides lucky enough to say that their wedding was absolutely perfect!Kelly & Derek
From creation to delivery, Shawn was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process! We were so thrilled to have had a ceremony so meaningful and beautifully written for the two of us. Even Shawn’s quirky, unique style was a true reflection of the two of us – something a little bit off the beaten path and totally unique! The only unfortunate issue we had was that the microphone cut out near the end of the ceremony… without missing a beat, Shawn handled it like a true pro and carried on. Thank you Shawn for helping to make this extra special day so memorable – it truly was magical!
We had a fabulous day. Jane, our officiant, put together a great ceremony, listened to who we are and really captured the way we are. She was super helpful in making suggestions and seeking the right feedback from us and delivered in an exceptional way on the day of. We couldn’t ask for any better and would highly recommend her and/or Young Hip & Married any day, everyday.Justin Reiher
- This was our first experience with Young Hip & Married and we were over the moon with their service. We had requested Shawn and thought that he was the perfect fit for us. He made a custom service for us that touched all of us that day, and we couldn’t be more thankful. Thank you guys so much for being there for us on our special day! Love Kaelen & Kelsey McGuireKelsey & Kaelen
Young Hip & Married is an amazing company to work with. We had Rhona as our officiant and we would not have had it any other way! She is so patient, calm and has a peaceful aura to her. Myself and my now husband highly recommend Rhona Segarra and using Young Hip & Married!Natalia & Leo
Thank you! We had the best day ever! I just want to let you know that we were more than please with Jane as our officiant. She was so easy to talk to and plan with before the wedding and on the day was very friendly, professional and easy to work with. We were very very happy!Britney & Mathew
Randy performed our ‘Vancouver’ wedding ceremony in a park near the ocean, in dumping rain, with us in our bathing suits and raincoats; he even joined us and the bridal party for a post-ceremony ocean dip. Because we did the marriage questionnaire and coaching session with him prior to the wedding, he was able to personalize the ceremony in such a way that we still get compliments on the wedding 6 years later!! I highly recommend Randy for both the pre-marriage coaching and performance of the ceremony.Jo-Ann D.
We loved working with YH&M! Jodi officiated our AB wedding and our ceremony was so uniquely us! Both my hubby and I wanted a unique experience that spoke to our love story. Neither one of us are religious and we never felt weird or pressured to include anything in the ceremony we didn’t want. Also, the ability to be able to read your ceremony over before your wedding day is SO WORTH IT. We’ve been to so many weddings before where the officiant randomly throws in a joke or reference that doesn’t feel right for the couple and throws off the vibe of the ceremony. Jodi was on point with the tone we were going for from the beginning and did her research by reaching out to our family and friends. We really felt like she knew us well and that our ceremony reflected our love for each other from a real and honest place.
Hot tip for people who think reading your ceremony beforehand “isn’t romantic”: my hubby and I got our ceremony months before our day and we decided to read it over just one time. By the time the day came it was fresh and new again and we cried just as much the first time we heard it as we did the first time we read it. Thanks YH&M for making our day uniquely us.Taryn & Rob
My husband and I had been engaged for a couple of years and life kept getting in the way, so finally we decided enough already and just eloped with Young Hip and Married. I can’t say enough about how easy they made the process, from booking to sorting out details to putting together a ceremony that felt genuinely representative of us. Jane Halton was a fantastic officiant who incorporated our reading beautifully, kept everything on track and organized and on time, but allowed for our personalized touches and an informal feel at the same time. She was great at keeping in touch leading up to the day of, making sure we had all our details in place. Thanks again YH&M for making our day special and making everything so stress-free! Would definitely, highly, recommend.Heather Scott
My husband and I tied the knot on Saturday, May 23rd, 2015 and Shawn Miller was our wedding officiant. We both knew Shawn prior to getting engaged. Once we got engaged we knew immediately who we wanted to marry us. Shawn made our wedding all about us– plain and simple. He took the time and effort to really get to know us (aside from what he already knew), who we are as individuals, who we are as a couple, our values, our view on marriage, what kind of wedding we want – everything! He compiled all of this into a draft, which we got to read and edit. We tossed the draft around a few times over the months until it was just what we wanted. He assisted us with the writing of our vows, he tossed around new ideas (wine box ceremony – which we ended up having at our ceremony!), and he incorporated the story of my husband and I and how we met into our ceremony. Our guests kept coming up to us at the reception inquiring about Shawn and commenting on how incredible, beautiful, personal, and unique our ceremony was. They mentioned they had never been to a ceremony like ours before and that it was just outstanding. We highly recommend Shawn of Young, Hip, and Married as your wedding officiant!Brad & Anita
Lani made our ceremony absolutely spectacular! When we first met Lani, we were instantly drawn to her charm, wit and humor. She is one of the friendliest and funniest people we have ever met. She took the time to meet with us and create our quirky dream ceremony, and when the day came, she sure did deliver! We had so much fun with our ceremony, and it really felt true to us. Many of our guests have said that it was the best ceremony they have ever attended. Choosing Lani as our officiant was the best decision ever. Thank you SO much, Lani, for making our day perfect. We are so grateful to have crossed paths with you.Jen & Derek
We had the best experience with them. They helped us to create the perfect wedding even during these difficult times. We are really grateful.Maria & Peter
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.

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
We wanted to reach out and say how great Marilyn was. She actually married Brandon’s sister 8 years ago, did our wedding, and will be doing our best man’s wedding in September this year. From our initial meet-and-greet at Starbucks, to our phone call a week before, and our rehearsal, we were continually impressed by her energy, enthusiasm and ability to walk us through everything. It was reassuring, calming, and we always knew we were in good hands with her. We were very happy with our ceremony and heard great comments from our guests about it.Sarah & Brandon
Shawn was amazing! We loved our wedding ceremony. The entire process was so professional yet personal. Shawn made our ceremony so unique and memorable. We laughed, we cried, and we felt so much love. Thank you Young Hip & Married for making our special day something we will never forget!Anderson De Santis
Cory was great! Wish I would have been more specific with the crowning portion of our ceremony but he did such a great job of articulating our journey to our guests and setting a fabulous tone for a magical evening!Josh & Melena
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
We had read great things about Young Hip & Married before our wedding and they honestly lived up to all the hype. The booking process is so easy and organized, they are quick to respond and open to requests. Our officiant was Peter and we felt he was a wonderful addition to our ceremony. He was kind, patient, and encouraging. We originally were not going to write personal vows but he gave us a helpful guide that made it super easy and we were glad that we went with his suggestion to do them. We loved our experience and would highly recommend to everybody!Jennifer & Peter
Jodi was incredible. She made our ceremony so personalized. We had a Star Wars wedding and you can tell she did a lot of research. I cannot thank her enough for how amazing it was. She even dressed up as a Jedi. Our guests said it was the best and most funny ceremony they have ever been to. She was great at keeping everyone focused and on time as well. Highly recommend!April & Jonathan
- Thank you for such a wonderful service. We couldn’t have been happier. We received lots of compliments on your ceremony – you are very good at your job! Denis and I both think that the ceremony was the best part of the wedding (as it should be!). I have attached one of my favourite photos from the day – you can see the relaxed, happiness just shining through!Vanessa & Denis
We had Shawn as our officiant. Shawn was awesome – we loved the ceremony draft he made for us and he really made the day about my husband and I. Our family mentioned that Shawn did a phenomenal job and they really enjoyed his personality. Some family members even said they wish they had somebody like him for their wedding. Shawn helped us with our vows. When he double booked himself he apologised and sent a co-worker in his place for the rehearsal. Shawn’s coworker Denise did so good and was so helpful. The company is awesome and has many choices for officiants and we loved how they personalized everything around my husband and I. Definitely recommend them.Samantha & Sean
- Thank you so much for everything! We truly appreciate you being apart of our special day. It definitely was a night to remember! We couldn’t have asked for anything to go better. You were amazing as both our officiant and MC so thank you! We will be sending our friends your way in the future!Jordanna & Brian
- Thank you so much for celebrating with us! You were wonderful to work with – I think we were both so calm because of you!We couldn’t have asked for more – the service was seamless and beautiful and the weather was perfect. Aside from the small blip of stress when we found out they closed the park, it was everything I imagined and more!Thanks again for everything – running the service so smoothly and guiding us through the ceremony. We’re so happy you shared that moment with us!Mandy & Josef
Jane exactly knew what we wanted for our wedding! Everything was perfect and we are glad that she was our officiant. 🙂Naomi & Devon
We were blessed to have Shawn officiate our marriage! The whole journey from meeting them via zoom, and going through the process of writing vows and planning the coordinates was so hassle free! We are very grateful to have them to be part of our wedding journey! Shawn was early in the location making sure everyone feels welcome. He is very professional and very kind. Before the event starts, he came out to find me and re-assure me that everything is perfect and that everything is right on time. 5/5 star is not enough, should be 10/10 🙂Reyanna & Gerard
Our September 2021 wedding was officiated by Kadee from Young Hip & Married and we couldn’t have been happier with the ceremony she prepared for us! It absolutely poured on our wedding day and Kadee was right there along with us, getting soaked as could be. She was well spoken, kind, thoroughly researched all of our requests, and spoke to our friends and family extensively in order to curate the ceremony to fit us perfectly. It was touching, funny, and memorable; we’ve had many comments from loved ones saying how much they enjoyed our personalized ceremony, as they felt it was a perfect representation of our relationship, and of us as people.
We connected with Kadee a few months before our wedding and immediately felt at ease with her — having never been married or planned a wedding before, we were unsure of what to expect but she guided us along the way and answered all of our questions with patience and enthusiasm. I would recommend Young Hip & Married to anyone looking for a personalized and memorable ceremony. Thank you Kadee and the entire YH&M team, we are so grateful for all that you contributed to our big day!Becca & Ben
Great personal touch and service. Shawn went above and beyond in planning and working with us to create a unique and authentic ceremony.Guy & Jen
Cannot recommend YH&M more! We worked with Erika as an officiant for our small elopement, and since we sent our first email reaching out, to the moment we said our “I do”s, the service was so incredibly personal, warm and helpful. They were supportive of us using our own format, including adding in a few extra moments that were not originally in the script. On top of all of this, they also took care of all the paperwork for us, making everything post-elopement a breeze. Despite only ever meeting Erika on the day of our wedding, our guests all felt like we already had an existing relationship with her. Thank you so much for the amazing support and service!Amanda & Blaise
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
My husband and I knew we wanted a really personalized wedding ceremony. When we first met with Shawn for coffee, we were super impressed on how well he understood our relationship…so we hired him on the spot! We both loved how we got to read over his drafts and edit anything we wanted. Shawn did not disappoint either, and he made our wedding ceremony truly special. Our wedding guests were super impressed and kept commenting on what a great job he had done. We loved working with Shawn overall, and he nailed every aspect that we wanted to have for our wedding. You can’t go wrong if you hire Young Hip and Married!Kylee & Luis
Young, Hip and Married exceeded our expectations in every area! Shawn and Erica are both so personable that even though we had never met face to face until moments before we were getting married, we felt as though we were spending time with old friends. Quality time! Shawn hit the mark so dead on in the words he spoke during our ceremony that one would wonder if he had been following us around for years in preparation. Erica took the photos for us and made our family feel completely at ease. We enjoyed the most laid back wedding day that suited our personalities completely, we wouldn’t change one thing and are so grateful for the experience! If we could tell the world how awesome this was we would, I have even been suggesting people marry strangers just to get in on it:) Thanks!Darcy Arnold
We had a wonderful experience with Young Hip & Married. Right from contacting them, booking the date till the actual ceremony, it was a smooth process. The team was very accommodating. Our officiant, Jordan Shaw, performed a beautiful ceremony to officiate our wedding on Mystic Beach. Such an amazing experience! We’ll cherish this moment forever.Kareena & Navpreet
After attending 7 weddings one summer, as an officiant, Shawn really stood out to us. In fact, several years later when we decide to elope, we reached out to Young Hip and Married and booked Gerry as we were confident anyone with the company would be great.
The responses were timely, professional and detailed. Coordinating everything was a breeze as Gerry was extremely flexible and accommodating – even day of when we started 15 minutes ahead of our scheduled time! He made sure we came prepared with all the necessary legal paperwork and he too was organized with all the paperwork side of things on his end.
Gerry was also extremely helpful when we worked on creating our vows. He truly made this part easy and captured our vision in words quite easily. Our family was very impressed that they actually paid attention to each word being exchanged!
Thanks Gerry and Young Hip and Married for making this piece of our day special and easy!Dalida & Scott
I can’t recommend these guys enough. Shawn made our rehearsal stress free and easy. He took all of us who didn’t know what we were doing and made us feel secure and confident with the plan. Everything on the wedding day went perfectly. Everyone was impressed and our guests kept asking where we found him! Absolutely perfect.Laura & Steven
We chose the elopement + photography package which included the wedding ceremony (vows, ring exchange, signing of papers) followed by 1 hr of photo’s. It was perfect from start to finish! Erica our photographer was so fun and knew exactly the style we wanted. Shawn was our officiant and he was so down to earth and kind. It was a bonus that they are a husband and wife duo! Couldn’t be any happier with choosing Young, Hip and Married for our special day.Codee & Jamieson
We had the honor of having Curt from Young Hip & Married officiate our wedding. The team at Young Hip & Married was very accommodating with our last minute changes to both the guest count and venue. Curt was very helpful throughout the process and provided all information needed way ahead of time. I highly recommend the the team at Young Hip & Married. Thank you all for your support during our wedding!Brian & Pamela
Had no idea what to look for and how this would work but we knew we wanted something unique. After doing a search, I stumbled upon their page and it kind of stood out with a couple of buzzwords/phrases that spoke to what we were looking for. Something uniquely us and fully customized. We sent off the request and were quickly moved into a conversation with the business who were very helpful right away. It was the 1st time so neither me, nor my now wife, had any idea what we were to do with this part of the wedding.
It didnt matter; they jumped right in and let us know we are far from the 1st that showed up doe eyed on the subject. We were put in touch with Jason pretty quick. We ended up talking over the phone at 1st and it was one of the 1st moments of “breath out” we experienced during the planning. He was ready to go, he had a plan for us and just wanted to hear what we had to say pertaining to what we like. He took that 1st interview and started to get to work.
We were a little late on the follow up as I am sure many of us are but he maintained contact and reminded us periodically that we still had this to complete. We were only about 5 weeks out when Jason had suggested we meet via Skype to build off the 1st call. It was great; he had an idea based on the initial call and started bouncing ideas off us. It fueled the thought processes for us as well and we worked to put together a fully customized, short and sweet but very meaningful ceremony that day. Jason took the ideas, wrote up a draft and sent it that week. We were able to review, make a couple small changes and send it back for finalization.
This was an area of worry from the jump and this company took that all away and allowed us to concentrate on all the other planning. It was incredible how easy it felt. While I would love to say I would use them again I do think this will be the only time 😉 I highly recommend to anyone that needs this service however. They were terrific.Ron Klatt
Shawn was amazing! He showed up on time and knew exactly what to do. I hadn’t spoken to him on the phone or in person but he said our vows like he knew us for years. I couldn’t stop saying to my guests how thankful we were that he was our officiant. Our guests loved him too. Shawn helped make our day amazing! Thank you, Young Hip & Married.Kirsten Kostyniuk
Our experience exceeded every expectation we had. Hands down, this is the best wedding officiant service out there. Randy Hamm was our officiant and he made our ceremony so personalized to us that it had everyone engaged the whole time. After the ceremony, family members came up and asked if we’d known our officiant all our lives. Yup, that’s how good it was!Ana Campbell
What an awesome day! Jonathan was not only professional, but also brought a ton of personality and humour to our vows and everyone really enjoyed the ceremony. I would definitely recommend this company to my friends and family.Steve & Valerie
Jane is an excellent wedding officiant. We were so happy with the service that she provided. She personalized our ceremony, made us feel at ease, and spoke from the heart. Throughout it all, she was professional, yet warm and personable. She was incredibly open to aspects of our ceremony that were non-traditional. Overall, she inspired a lot of confidence in us, and we are glad she was a part of our ceremony.S & J
We were married on November 9th this year at the Fraser Rover Fishing Lodge. We used the wonderful services of YH&M for our ceremony and rehearsal and everything went off without a hitch! They made us feel super comfortable and accommodated every request we had for the ceremony! We will certainly be recommending them to the rest of our ‘yet to be married’ friends for when the time comes to find an officiant!! Thank you so much Kristen for making our day extra special and walking us through the most important day of our lives so far!
Loved our ceremony!! It was very well performed and I felt like leading up to it communication was great, making changes was easy and it was totally customized!!Leighton & Nicole
Our experience with YH&M was great – from booking to the day of the ceremony, they were professional and made the whole experience totally stress-free. We especially had a wonderful experience with Jane (our officiant) and Emily (our photographer)! Jane, our officiant, was organized, thoughtful and supportive throughout the whole process from booking to the day. She made everything so easy by communicating with us before the ceremony, and guided a smooth ceremony on the day. Emily, our photographer, made us feel comfortable from the get go, even though we tend to be camera shy folks! She gave us direction and made us feel totally at ease on the day, and we couldn’t have been more grateful! She provided us with a sneak peek of our photos promptly, and they turned out perfectly. Thank you YH&M, Jane and Emily for making our day so special!Jessica & Eric
- We couldn’t have asked for a better ceremony! Shawn was an incredible officiant and made sure that both the ceremony was wonderful and we were present and got the most out of the experience. I am so glad we went with YH&M and would definitely recommend them.Molly & Conor
We were beyond pleased to work with Young, Hip & Married. We had less than two weeks to find an officiant for our small elopement ceremony. Sarah came out on our wedding day and did a wonderful job. She was so warm and friendly. I highly recommend!Erika & John
Young Hip and Married provided a very relaxed environment. They were very professional, and helped to provide a very heartfelt ceremony. Highly recommend themKristen & John
Amazing experience from start to finish. Lani was our officiant and did an outstanding job! I cannot stress how amazing she is – incredibly professional and the ceremony was beyond what we could’ve hoped or imagined! Each and every one of our guests commented on what an amazing ceremony it was; how it was both serious and very personal and fun. A lot of them said it was the best ceremony they have ever attended.Devon Vanmook
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
We are from out of town and Lani made everything so easy for us and graciously answered all of our questions. When we met Lani, we instantly felt comfortable and knew we were in good hands. Everything went smoothly (and with some fun laughs!) and we were impressed with the connection she made with us, even though we did a smaller elopement ceremony. A big thank you to Lani and Young Hip & Married for making our day so beautiful.
YH&M helped us organize a small elopement in Calgary – they were friendly and organized, put us in touch with a great officiant, and helped us plan the ceremony. I’d happily recommend them to friends & family.Charles & Amelia
Beth was incredible. We hit it off right from our first meeting, and felt comfortable and safe with her ideas for handling our intimate ceremony. The draft of the ceremony she first sent us showed how thoughtful and creative she is with designing the perfect ceremony for each of her couples. We are both teachers, and the end of term is a very hectic time for us, but Beth was beyond patient with delayed responses and last minute questions and changes. She made everything so easy and stress free; it was an absolute blessing.
At the wedding itself, her calm, generous presence really set the tone for our relaxed ceremony—exactly what we wanted. She exceeded our wildest expectations for a personally tailored ceremony illustrating our story and what is important to us. It felt like she was part of the family, she was so at ease and made everyone else feel that way too.
We are so grateful for the time, care and attention that Beth brought to every part of the process, and we cannot recommend her highly enough.
It’s been months since our wedding and people from our wedding are still bringing up how amazing Beth was and how special she made that crucial part of our big day.Marie & Tash
We are so glad we decided to use Young Hip and Married for our special day. The process was very easy to complete and they were very responsive which is very important. Our officiant was Jane and she was so sweet and amazing. She checked in a couple times before the wedding day which was really nice. On the wedding day, Jane did an amazing job with crafting the vows to suit us perfectly. Wedding day was a huge success. Thanks Jane!Kelly & Eva
Shawn was absolutely fantastic! We had requested a simple legalization/elopement, and everything turned out exactly as we had imagined it. He showed up at our chosen vacation excited for us and ready to go. He was friendly and engaging with us and our two friends who were there to witness. The whole experience turned out to be a very happy and memorable one! I will definitely be recommending these guys to anyone I know getting married in the future.Brittany Manson
Beth was the most amazing officiant we could have asked for. She created a beautiful and personal ceremony for us that suited my husband and me perfectly. Before our wedding day, she met with us to get to know my husband and me and what we were hoping to have included in the ceremony. She even contacted our friends to get personalized information for the ceremony. It was the most effort I’ve ever seen an officiant put into a wedding, and we are so grateful for her guidance through the whole wedding planning process. My husband and I have had so many friends and family who attended the wedding tell us that it was the most heartfelt ceremony they had been to. This was largely due to Beth’s warm and friendly presence, and the fact that she created a ceremony that was unique to us. Any couple who have Beth as an officiant are so fortunate as she truly is a special person to have marry you.M & B
My wife and I had called upon Young Hip & Married when we were on the hunt for an officiant for our wedding. We were immediately introduced to Beth and clicked right away. My wife and I were already doing a completely different wedding away from our traditional Indian culture so there was some pressure for Beth. She executed the ceremony flawlessly, she was very well spoken, catered to us completely, and respected all of our requests and feedback. I only plan to get married once so I wouldn’t be able to call them again haha, however, if you plan on hiring an officiant this is a great company to call!Runesh & Karen
The whole experience with YH&M was seamless. From initial contact, to meeting with our officiant Jodi, to the wedding itself. Everything was easy and they maintained great communication throughout. Jodi did a fantastic job with our ceremony and she was a pleasure to work with. She helped coach us through putting together the ceremony to make it unique to us, and was also able to make it bilingual for our Spanish-speaking family. Overall a great experience through and through!Alejandra & Cameron
Kadee was an amazing officiant! We got the custom package and we loved everything about the script that Kadee (our officiant) made for us. You work with so many vendors for your wedding and Young Hip & Married is probably one of the most professional ones that we’ve worked with.Nathania Gail & Vincent
I knew when we were planning our wedding that I did not want a cookie cutter wedding ceremony where you regurgitate words that you ‘have to say.’ I contacted YH&M and in walked SHAWN. Honestly, it was one of the best decisions we made!!! He was AMAZING!! We worked together to create a ceremony that was personal and heartfelt and that is exactly what our guests felt. We received so much positive feedback about our ceremony saying how ‘US’ it was and how great SHAWN was. Shawn was open to all the suggestions I made (even if that meant letting the best man read some lines in French 🙂 I cannot recommend YH&M and SHAWN enough!!! Seriously, it is soooo WORTH IT!!!Chelsea & Julien
Everything about Young Hip and Married was fabulous. We were so well looked after from the first point of contact to the ceremony itself. We had the pleasure of being married by Jodi and she did an amazing job. Thank you, YH&M!Mascha & Nicholas
“Sarah is personable and easy to work with. She is articulate, intelligent, and quick-witted. She sat down with us a few months before our wedding to learn more about us so that she could capture “us” in the ceremony, which she did perfectly. She wrote and performed a beautiful ceremony that fit us and our wishes (and all in 30 minutes!) We have gotten so many compliments from family and friends about how beautiful and moving our ceremony was, and this was all thanks to Sarah’s careful planning and execution. Sarah made the ceremony about us, but maintained a commanding and professional presence and we highly recommend her.”Natalie Higgins
We had a wonderful experience with YH&M! They were communicative from the start up until the big day. They had great suggestions for locations, pictures and vows. Overall, a great experience and would recommend to our friends!Megan & Jeremy
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
Our officiant Mark was a dream to work with. My husband and I come from two completely different backgrounds/cultures/faiths, and we wanted to craft our ceremony in such a way that it could encompass both of our traditions and values. Mark went through everything with us and made the process so easy. He was organized, helpful, and most of all very patient. The speech he crafted for us was so beautiful, and his personality was so warm and welcoming that our guests still can’t stop talking about our beautiful ceremony!Sherry and Jeffery
It was an absolute pleasure working with Curt for our wedding ceremony. He was easy-going, funny, thorough and worked with us to craft our perfect ceremony. His presence on the day set a great tone for the ceremony and we are still receiving compliments on his delivery, warmth and professionalism. We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant or ceremony. We strongly recommend Curt!Anna & Jordan
We were married at the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary in Calgary, with Jodi as our officiant and it was perfect. We couldn’t have asked for anything more, we got exactly what we asked for.Alaina & Matt
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
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
My wife and I, along with our two witnesses, arrived at the gates of Golden Ears park on a gorgeous Tuesday afternoon in March. We had arranged to meet Kadee and Emily there at 2pm with the intent to drive further in to the park to a few preselected and picturesque spots to conduct our ceremony and take our wedding photos. We arrived to find the gates locked! Kadee and Emily seemed a bit more concerned than we were, but remained consummate professionals. We simply backtracked down the road a bit and said our vows on a rock outcropping in the middle of a river along the side of Golden Ears Way and took some lovely photos (after politely shooing away a few groups of playing children and teenagers). Kadee and Emily were wonderful to have with us on our wedding day; I would highly recommend them to anyone.Ben & Miranda
Cory was absolutely amazing and really made a connection with our story. He understood us and our religious values while making the ceremony light and fun. He handled everything with professionalism and ensured that Jordan and I knew what to do on the day of our wedding. Wonderful job and I would definitely recommend Young Hip & Married to those who are looking for something professional and fresh.Ashleigh
Jonathan was the perfect officiant for us. He is easy going and cared deeply about his role in our wedding ceremony. Jonathan was so organized that we didn’t need to be concerned over every detail; he took care of everything. His message for us was personal and heartwarming and everyone had such good things to say about our ceremony. We highly recommend Jonathan and the Young Hip and Married team to anyone who is looking to get married in Toronto!Tanya Wiebe
- The BEST way to elope! Young Hip and Married made our elopement amazing and surpassed all of our expectations!Jayme & Brandon
Booking and planning our elopement was easy with Young Hip and Married. Jordan the officiant did a wonderful job and was in contact with us prior to the service to ensure it was exactly what we wanted. Heather from Tulle and Tweed Photography (booked through Young Hip and Married) did an incredible job capturing the day and gave us plenty of beautiful photos to look back on. Communication from every person we spoke with was great and made planning the day and making sure we had everything ready easy.Megan & Matthew
Randy and the Young Hip & Married team were incredible! We got so many compliments with most people telling us it was the best ceremony they’ve ever been to! Randy made us comfortable, made us laugh and was a pleasure to work with. He worked with us to really make our ceremony our own and fit our personalities! Thank you so much Randy and Young Hip & Married!Stephanie & Kyle
Shawn and Erica made our day so special, we will never forget our wedding day. Thank you for making our day so memorable and personable. The photos turned out great and Shawn officiated our wedding in the most perfect way that suited us 100%. Will recommend to anyone planning a wedding!Lillian & William
We had a small ceremony in Duncan BC in our uncle’s beautiful backyard. Our officiant Brian was easy to communicate with before and during the wedding. His beautiful words were true personally to us. He was calm and relaxed and made us feel at ease. We highly recommend Young Hip & Married, especially Brian! Thank you so much for your help and support on our special day.Katie & Dustyn
Shawn officiated our wedding and we couldn’t be more thrilled. We had chosen to go with YHM due to the wide selection of officiants to choose from, and we found one that suited the theme/vibe we were going for. Unfortunately, a few months before the wedding, something came up and the officiant we chose was unable to do our wedding. We were disappointed and wondering whether we had made a mistake (spoiler alert – we hadn’t). Shawn reached out to us immediately, apologized, and offered to find a suitable replacement, or officiate our wedding himself. At first we were apprehensive as we really connected with our original choice, but Shawn met with us in person and quickly put us at ease that everything would only be done with our approval of the finished product/script. From that point forward, Shawn worked very closely with us and our feedback, and we went through various iterations of our final wedding ceremony. He even helped us with our vows. On the day, Shawn delivered in spades – A true pro. He was very well prepared, without sounding too rehearsed, and he struck the right tone that we were going for. We received several compliments from guests after the ceremony on how awesome the officiating was – Authentic, sweet, and engaging, while keeping the focus squarely on the bride and groom. Things went perfectly and we couldn’t be happier – Thanks Shawn for saving the day and making our wedding a huge success!Katie & Daniel
Peter, our wedding officiant, was the best – literally the best. He took the time to meet us for coffee, get to know us, understand our expectations, dislikes, likes and was able to weave those into a surprise ceremony. Our ceremony was also at a strange time and Peter promised to come out at a specific time and not to worry, he would stay until he had married us. It was super important to us to be able to do it our way and Peter was always understanding of this, super excited to work with us and just a pleasure to get to know. The only thing we wish was that he stayed around for the after party ; ) We highly recommend. Thank you!Angela & Dylan
They are so kind and we (from Japan) were relieved. The officiant also readily changed the shipping address of the certificate. We had a superb wedding with Young Hip & Married.Chisako & Eri
Randy was outstanding!! Could not have asked for a better officiant! He was very helpful with writing our vows, kept the ceremony light and thoughtful. Highly recommended!!Steven
We had an incredible experience with YH&M. Beth was our officiant and she was beyond wonderful. The whole experience was seamless 🙂Ariana & Michael
Shawn was the officiant for our Pop-up Wedding (organized by Primp & Pop) and we couldn’t be happier. He connected with us right away and the first draft of the ceremony was so beautiful. He adapted his script to our requests to make it more personalized. Shawn’s energy was the perfect tone for our ceremony and we were lucky that he was able to work while on vacation in Muskoka!Nicole & Andrew
Thank you so much for being our amazing and lovely officiant!! And thank you for being flexible when ceremony got delayed. We received so many compliments from guests about how well you set the mood and the way you spoke and everything was perfect!! We feel so fortunate to have been married by you, Erika!Lidia & Edmund
Young Hip and Married were fantastic to work with. From the personalized video introduction of the company, to helping us with recommendations, and finally the meaningful and heartfelt officiating (by Shawn) and capturing-the-moment photography (by Erica). They really helped to make our elopement unforgettable.Zoe & Lucas
We had originally booked with Shawn but due to a scheduling conflict, Randy stepped in and took over as our officiant. We feel like we lucked out because HE IS AMAZING!! From our first initial meeting with him, to the very last moments right before our ceremony, Randy was there every step of the way. What we really noticed about Randy was that he loves what he does, and he just happens to be amazing at it too! Bonus! Randy took the time to create the ceremony we wanted. He even reached out to our close friends and family to get inside jokes and stories about us. Our ceremony reflected us and although there were lots of tears, there were equally as many laughs which is exactly how we pictured our ceremony. We really feel like he went over and beyond and we still get compliments from our guests about Randy and how awesome he was. On top of creating and executing the perfect ceremony for us, we did a coaching session with him which we would highly recommend, either before or after marriage. We both went in open-minded and felt really comfortable. So glad we took the time to meet with him and do this. He has a calm nature, and is a great listener and very easy to talk to. He provided great suggestions for making and keeping our marriage strong. We would be happy to have sessions with him in the future as well. We’re over the moon happy that we had him as our officiant!Katrina Carle
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
Young Hip and Married were amazing! We had Mark officiant our wedding and all the guests couldn’t stop raving about his ceremony! He was so personable and made our day so perfect. Highly recommend!Will & Katrina
Lise was incredible. We had a non-traditional wedding with a private signing/legal ceremony in the morning followed by a larger traditional ceremony and reception in the afternoon. Lise performed our signing/legal ceremony with just our siblings present. Even though it was a small ceremony, she still took the time to get to know us and walked the line perfectly between making our morning ceremony special without overshadowing the afternoons events. I would highly recommend Lise to anyone getting married in the area.Jessalyn & Eric
Kristen was the perfect officiant for our wedding! She was warm and personable – a great fit for our intimate wedding. My husband and I planned our Vancouver wedding remotely from the US, and Kristen was extremely accommodating. She truly guided us through the entire ceremony planning process. Thank you Kristen for making our day extra special!Christine Kim
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
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
We just wanted to personally thank you, Cory, for doing such an amazing job with our ceremony. We loved how personal, light and fun it was. We had so many comments from our guests about how our ceremony was easily one of the best ones they have attended.
Everyone loved how personal it was, also, everyone loved the idea of having community vows – it truly did give the wedding a “camp feel”. We had many people mention that they loved feeling like they were apart of the ceremony, not just a witness to it. Everything about the ceremony was perfect. Thank you for all of your hard work. The dedication and enthusiasm you have for your job is something that helped set the tone for our ceremony, and we can’t thank you enough for that.Lyn & Braedon
We had Jonathan as our officiant. He was always willing to help, respond quickly and make any edits to the ceremony that we wanted. It was a great ceremony.
We loved everything about this experience!Brittney & Jarrett
We had Denise as our officiant for our elopement and we’re so happy to have had her! From our intro call, Denise was very welcoming, clear, and thorough, making it super easy to work with her to bring together the ceremony. We also absolutely loved story she put together for us based on our experience/responses. The execution was flawless as well!
Young Hip & Married team was also very responsive and great to work with. The team was very professional, and we highly recommend the team to any couple looking to hold a wonderful personalized wedding ceremony!Michelle & Charles
Getting married during a global pandemic is far from easy. YHM acknowledged this and worked with us, ensured we had a physical distancing and safety plan in place, and made our day more special than I ever imagined. Jane, our officiant, was absolutely lovely, and walked us through each stage of the elopement process. Thank you so much for taking some stress off of us as we took our loving relationship to the next level.Bran & Mikah
Young Hip and Married made the entire process of booking our officiant easy and without stress. When we wanted to meet with a second officiant, there was absolutely no problem, and we found our perfect fit! Peter was efficient, relaxed, professional, and an absolute dream to work with. He was quick to make any changes we wanted, and put so much love and support into our ceremony. Can’t recommend YHM enough!We got married in September 2020 and had Peter La Grand as our officiant. Right from the start, Michael and I both knew he was the perfect officiant for us! He was incredibly easy-going and focused, which took all of the buzzing anxiety out of the room so that we could focus on what we wanted and needed to think about. He is also very organized! After our initial meeting, he sent us a thorough survey covering every aspect of the ceremony to get a feel for what it was that we wanted. He even reached out to our wedding party to gather little testimonials. Due to COVID, our wedding parties couldn’t make it, but hearing their loving words of encouragement made it feel like they were right there with us on the big day. Peter was very quick to respond and apply any edits we made to the script, often within minutes of us making them! When he arrived for the rehearsal, he was great doling out responsibilities to my two young nephews who were our ring bearer’s. On the day, he was just incredible, full of smiles and laughter and giving our photographers enough room to snap that ‘first kiss’ shot. All in all Peter was exceptionally personable, professional, kindhearted, and easy to talk with. I would absolutely recommend him and YHM to anyone planning their wedding day. Thanks, Peter!Mariah & Michael
I’m so glad to have had you guys on my big day! Our wedding was just simple and with our officiant, Kadee, she made the wedding so sweet and warm. I will recommend Young Hip & Married to all my friends!Zoe Wang
We had a very small ceremony with Chris-Ann Lakes as our officiant. As soon as we met her, we knew she was the perfect fit for us. She was warm and friendly and set the perfect tone for our ceremony. We did not want to write our own vows, so Chris-Ann scripted a beautiful ceremony for us, including our vows. Thank you Chris-Ann for a wedding ceremony we will always cherish.Erin & Damon
- Erika, you were wonderful! You displayed a genuine interest in our love story and helped us craft a beautiful wedding ceremony that was cherished by all. The rehearsal was great because it gave us a sense of what was going to happen the day of, and everything really came together with your amazing help!Your warmth and energy also helped make our special day such a positive one that we will cherish forever. We cannot thank you enough!Will & Vikki Greenlaw
We had a great experience using Young Hip & Married for our helicopter elopement. They made the booking process a breeze and provided us with several backup options in case of bad weather. We loved our short and sweet ceremony and are looking forward to seeing our photos!Allison & James
We wanted to thank you for doing an amazing job with the ceremony! We couldn’t have been happier with how it turned out.

My mother found Young Hip & Married for us… and it turned out amazing. Kadee was our officiant up in Squamish. We had multiple comments made by guests on how they enjoyed the non traditional speech about our lives and where we came from. It was truly personalized. Would definitely recommend the service to anyone looking to have their wedding personalized and tailored to the actual couple!Jared & Szilvia
Very professional and knowledgeable. They guided us through this event and we’d be happy to recommend them to anyone.Vanessa & James
We wanted to thank you so much for officiating our wedding! It was amazing and we received many compliments from our guests on how great the ceremony was! Thank you! It was a very touching ceremony and it would have not been possible without you there with us!Sean & Iva
Our wedding officiant was Kristen and she was outstanding! Kristen took on the challenge of adding some Spanish to our wedding ceremony and it was way beyond what we asked for. She really did an amazing job and our Spanish-speaking guests were delighted. Kristen took care of us since we decided to work with Young Hip and Married and made everything go so smoothly and stress-free. We were able to personalise a lot of things for our ceremony and it made it extra special. We feel lucky for having Kristen and Young Hip and Married as part of our wedding day. You guys are awesome!Vanadis & Jeff - Spanish/English Wedding
We couldn’t be more thankful to have found Peter and the YH&M team. From the very first email, everyone was incredibly supportive, responsive, calm, and organized. Peter knew all the right questions to ask and he captured our story so perfectly. Our guests loved him and it was a pleasure having him officiate our ceremony. Thank you, Peter and YH&M, for making our day so happy, relaxed, and memorable.Jessica & Toby
We cannot thank Jane Halton enough for helping make our ceremony so beautiful! Never in a million years could we have imagined being so comfortable standing up there in front of 160 people but Jane made all of our fears disappear. She created a beautiful ceremony that fit our personalities perfectly and allowed us to enjoy the moment. We absolutely loved every aspect of the process working with Jane. I would highly recommend her!Olivia & Anthony
We’re a little late to the review party here, having been married in May, but we wanted to give a shout out to Peter La Grand + YH&M. We had originally planned for a 100-ish person wedding, but COVID-19 had other ideas. Thusly, we ended up having an outdoor elopement with 7 guests. Peter was easy to communicate with throughout the whole process, including the transition to the elopement. We enjoyed the relaxed nature of the ceremony planning process. We started by meeting Peter for a beer, where he informally asked us questions about us as a couple and as individuals. From there, we each filled out a survey with more questions. The result was a personalized, fun and upbeat ceremony. Our guests loved the ceremony – typical wedding ceremonies can be a little “cookie cutter,” but ours was the opposite. Peter did such an amazing job that some people thought he was a personal friend of ours! All in all Peter and YH&M helped us create a magical day, despite some major adjustments due to the pandemic. We couldn’t be happier with how things turned out and HIGHLY recommend both Peter and YH&M.Oliver & Elisabeth
Shawn was a great officiant, able to adjust to a last minute change with no problem. The vows were perfect for us as a couple and he put us at ease immediately with his professionalism and kind attitude. The services offered by “Young hip & married” were thorough, stress free and provided just the amount of assistance we wanted.Greg & Amy
- Initially in the deer in headlights phase of planning my wedding, I didn’t give a great deal of thought to who our officiant would be. Nor honestly did I think much about the words that person would say before our friends and family, though words are very important to me. Our wonderful wedding planner encouraged us to look into Young Hip & Married though, and I’m so grateful that she did. The sample ceremonies on their website had me absolutely touched and we soon connected with Lani.From the very first (zoom) meeting she was warm and delightful and engaged. In our wedding prep meeting she listened actively to our whole love story. She guided us through the process of preparing our ceremony and gave us tons of options to customize it to fit us. From the broad strokes of the structure of the ceremony and mood to the micro details of her script. At the rehearsal she wrangled our highly distractable wedding party with skill. At the wedding she inspired laughter and tears in all the best ways.Lani and Young Hip and Married helped absolutely make our day. If you’re considering working with them, absolutely pounce on that opportunity.Danny & Ian
We received a quick response from Young Hip & Married when we inquired about their elopement photography package. Everything was communicated through e-mail but you could still feel how genuine and kind everyone was. The whole process was easy and it even came with a wedding vow course which actually helped a lot! Thank you Erica, Shawn and the rest of the team for making our day so special.Angel & Brandon
With Young Hip & Married you will get a wedding that is both individualized & unique – and far from generic! Professional, organized, flexible, and thorough are just some words I would use to describe this company. A few things that really stood out to me right away were how quickly they were to respond during communication, their great tips and advice for weddings, and how they even provided a course for writing your own vows.
Gerry Hiebert was the officiant for our wedding and he did an amazing job from beginning to end!
His expertise along with his warm and calming presence made the entire process smooth and painless, and gave us the confidence and peace of mind we needed. Not only was Gerry incredibly helpful and supportive along the way, but he also created a highly personalized ceremony which was perfectly tailored for us!
On our wedding day we were able to just enjoy it and live in the moment, and we are still receiving comments about how beautiful and romantic the ceremony was. We couldn’t have done it without Gerry, and we are so glad we chose Young Hip & Married!Sylvie & Jon
Shawn is so enthusiastic and vibrant. He told us exactly what to do at our rehearsal. My friend actually thought he was our friend because there’s no way he’s that good and was hired!! Shawn has such a great voice too!!Diana & Scott
- Many thanks Jonathan, for your thoughtful note and part in the ceremony! Together we created a magical memory we’ll cherish forever. Peace and love, Cat & JoeCat & Joe
Excellent and amazing service! Couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Thank you again for everything!Tyler & Stephanie
Beth at YH&M was absolutely outstanding. She read our personalities perfectly and picked up on exactly what we were looking for in a wedding experience. The ceremony was the perfect balance of fun, humour, and warmth. She went above and beyond, researching our interests, and incorporating them into the ceremony. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about how great she was, and how perfectly her ceremony was suited to our personalities. In short, we could not have asked for a better experience.Erik & Jessie
Jane made the process very easy, fun and really reduced the stress that weddings can be. She was very understanding and even helped us correct errors we made. I’d highly recommend her services and can see why others have recommended her as well. All the best, Winhol and My LinhWinhol & My Linh
Shawn, we wanted to thank you for being our officiant; you were absolutely amazing. We could not have asked for a better ceremony. Even though we had just met, you made it so personal and it was fantastic! We were so happy with how our day went; we wouldn’t have changed a thing! Thank you for being a part of our special day.Katrina & Scott
Jodi was an absolute delight!!! The best of the best!!! Don’t hesitate, JUST BOOK!!!Terry Clapp
- We had a wonderful experience. Shawn happily endured some wild weather for our dramatic outdoor ceremony. I feel that he did a good job of quickly reading our personalities and providing a service that was just right for us.Erin & John

Energetic, fun and organized! We were more than impressed with our officiant from YHM.Erika & Kelbey
When we started researching officiants, I was determined to find someone that would make the ceremony the best and the least boring wedding ceremony my guests had seen, so when I found Young Hip & Married it seemed like a perfect fit. Brian was the company’s only option on the island and he was absolutely perfect. We chatted on the phone, over text and email, and met a few times before the wedding to get to know each other and it made the ceremony so authentic and personal. Brian is honestly one of the coolest and most interesting people I’ve met and almost every guest at the ceremony commented that it was the best one they’d been too. Everyone thought that Brian was an old friend that we’d known for years and it truly felt that way. The ceremony was the perfect length — not too long or too short — and Brian made it so fun and put us at both at ease. Young Hip & Married is a bit pricier than some officiants that you’ll find on the government website, but I am beyond happy that we went with them because the experience was truly priceless. I can’t recommend Brian enough and he will definitely be officiating our vow renewal in the future 😉Kayla & Aaron
Great experience using Young Hip and Married. Shawn did our brother’s wedding and we thought he was so good that we made sure we booked him for our wedding too and he did another amazing job with lots of good feedback from our guests. Would recommend Young Hip and Married to anyone getting married. All the best!Matt & Shivon
We are very happy we chose Young Hip & Married! Chris-Ann was fantastic! She was very responsive and quick to reply to emails. Her overall vibe was exactly what we were hoping for. We were nervous to have a stranger marry us, especially because of covid so we couldn’t meet in person before the wedding, but Chris-Ann eased any trepidations we had during our zoom chat. The actual day of the wedding was so chaotic, but she remained cool, calm and so professional!!!!!Aya & Justin
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
We had our wedding on May 22, 2022 and Erika was our officiant. My word, what a wonderful officiant. The whole process of preparing for the wedding, scripting of ceremony, rehearsing and the day itself was made so wonderful by her! Would highly recommend Young Hip and Married and also Erika!Melvin & Tsveta
We had Jane as our officiant and she was lovely to work with! She was very helpful, providing lots of resources to write our own vows but in the end, I decided it would be better for us to just do the standard vows she provided us with and it turned out very well! Short and sweet – thank you Jane and the YHM team for helping us on our special day, we definitely won’t forget it!Jade & Murray
We couldn’t be happier that Peter married us! My now husband and I reached out to YHM last January 2020 and were paired with Peter. We met up with Peter that same month and instantly felt a connection with him. He was very easy to talk to and we were confident he was the right officiant for us. But as covid hit, we postponed our wedding and ended up eloping. Our wedding was very intimate and Peter made the ceremony personable. The ceremony was heartfelt and we were impressed with how he referred to our vows in the ceremony as well. Communication with Peter and Rebecca, who works in YHM’s customer relations area, was smooth and stress-free even when we had to change our plans a few times. We look forward to having Peter again for our bigger wedding ceremony once it is safe. Thank you Peter and YHM team!Bianca & Thomas
Jane Halton was our wedding officiant from Young Hip and Married. She was extremely professional, warm, and she delivered the exact ceremony we wanted. I would highly recommend Jane to anyone searching for a top notch wedding officiant. Thank you Jane for making our wedding day highly memorable!Jill & Mark
Most of my life can be summed up by the saying, “better late than never”. So, in classic ‘me’ fashion, here’s my review for Young Hip & Married and Marilyn Knipp. We could not have been happier with the amazing ceremony that was presided over by Marilyn. The instant we met her for our initial meeting, we knew we wanted her to officiate our wedding day. Her kindness, warmth, and genuine happiness shone through her and she made us feel like we were her family. She listened to our ideas and helped us to create a truly intimate and personal ceremony. We have never been ones to do things “in the box”, and we were so blessed to have someone like Marilyn to help us plan and execute our ceremony, as well as help us wrangling our families on the day. Every step of the way was an amazing process, and every YH&M rep we spoke with was absolutely amazing. So endless thank you’s to the YH&M team and the amazing Marilyn. We couldn’t have done it without you.Samantha & Josef
We had a wonderful experience with Young Hip & Married. Beth was our officiant and she was fantastic! We did a helicopter elopement and that alone was the coolest experience! Also we had to change our dates a few times and they were so great working with us and finalizing all the plans. We had just the best day every!! Thanks so much Young Hip & Married!!Jerica & Brett
Thank you Lauren for officiating our wedding. You exceeded our expectations. The ceremony and your words are full of love and sincerity. We are so blessed to have met you.Cherry & Ruth
Shawn and the whole team have been amazing through this whole wedding journey. Everything was so thoroughly planned and executed. We couldn’t have asked for a better team to get us married. Everything from our first meeting to writing out the whole ceremony for our guests was all so wonderful. We wanted a light, simple, funny but sentimental ceremony and it’s exactly what we got. They were always available to answer any questions but text or email. Thank you to the amazing team and Erika for getting us married.Angela & Peter
I had the fantastic experience of having hired Young Hip and Married for my small wedding ceremony. Amazing customer service and our officiant Jane was lovely! Best day of our lives.Lais & William
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
When we first started planning a wedding, we had no idea what we were doing. We started looking at venues and photographers, commissioners and cake! It was all so expensive and complicated and making me really stressed. When we found Young Hip & Married through Google – looking at their services and packages… We knew that eloping was more our style and once we talked to them, all of our stresses were relieved. We told them what our overall wishes were and they helped us to find a beautiful spot in the city – we got married at Rotary Park. Layne was our officiant, and he was so kind and funny and helped us feel at ease the day of when we were nervous! Deanna was our photographer and she did such an amazing job; the pictures turned out beautiful. Overall I suggest YH&M 100% and would suggest that anyone who wants a special and unique wedding day to speak to them and find out more. Thanks again so much to the team, we loved every minute of it.Olivia & Justin
Thank you SO much for the most amazing ceremony!! When we got engaged I thought about the (admittedly few) weddings I’d been to and how bored I always was during the ceremony and knew that I wanted mine to be something people would actually enjoy and remember. I’m so happy I found you because that’s exactly what I got and every single person I talked to at the reception raved about how perfect the ceremony was. We can’t thank you enough for making the best day of our lives beyond perfect!Kayla & Aaron
We feel so lucky to have had you as our officiant, truly. You made everything so simple for us, and everyone was super touched by your speech. You’ve given us exactly what we wanted!Echo & Roy
Shawn Miller was fabulous as our marriage commissioner! He met with us in person before we made our decision and he was our first and obvious choice. Shawn worked with us to make our ceremony as personal and as special as possible and put us both at ease on our big day. We had so many compliments on the part he played with our ceremony and his interaction with our guests before, during and after. He and his wife run a very professional business and make sure all your needs are met and your questions are answered in a very timely fashion. My new husband and I would highly recommend Shawn and his colleagues for a very memorable day!Ivan & Lisa
We had a great time working with our officiant and ceremony coordinator for our special day. They helped us think of all of the important details about our ceremony, and the vow course was excellent as well. Experience with officiant was excellent. Thank you!Oona & Jeffrey
I would highly recommend Young, Hip and Married. Having been to a ceremony by this company in Vancouver, I was so happy to see that they had expanded to Ontario. Mark Groleau was wonderful to work with from our first meeting to our wedding day. Our guests all raved about our ceremony; he managed to tell our story such that it was sentimental, lighthearted and entertaining — just what we had hoped for. We will look back on it and smile for years to come, and hope to see him at some of our friends’ weddings in the future (they are definitely all asking who did the ceremony!).Sarah Burns
We wanted our ceremony to be a memorable part of the wedding for both us and our guests. Lani from YH&M was spectacular! She understood our personalities and through the ceremony was able to set the tone for the rest of our wedding. Our day was joyous and fun, and Lani played a huge role in creating this mood. We cannot thank her enough. 10/10 would recommend her.Krista & Andrew
Our officiant Terry was lovely! Our wedding ceremony was in French and English, so we had to have a bilingual officiant, and Terry was just perfect for the job. He took the time to get to know us and personalised our ceremony in a beautiful way. Great experience 🙂Anonymous
Our officiant was Lani Brunn and she was amazing. She made us feel comfortable and at ease. She was very organized and meshed well with our parents and bridal party. She kept everyone in check as well. We really appreciated the uniqueness of YHM’s style of officiating. They were also very professional and made sure we were happy with whomever we were hiring. I would definitely recommend Lani Brunn at YHM.Birinder + Laurel
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
For our intimate, Covid19 wedding, Shawn made the experience feel comfortable and special. We really appreciated his words and manner. From booking, to wedding it was an easy process, and we were very happy with the outcome.Kaity & Andrew
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
- We live in the UK and decided that we wanted a small, intimate, fun and relaxed ceremony (with just our immediate family) that doubled as an amazing holiday for everyone.Our officiant Cory delivered at every single stage of our wedding as he helped us plan in the months prior and gave a wonderful ceremony on the day. He went above and beyond, making time for us on Skype and via email and meeting us when we arrived in Vancouver, to learn more about us and put us at ease. He crafted a wonderful ceremony which our family absolutely loved and engaged us all. Our day couldn’t have been any better, and that’s in no small part thanks to Cory.A huge thank you to both Cory and YH&M for making our wedding so enjoyable and stress free. Hand on heart, it was the perfect day and we couldn’t have hoped for better.If you want a unique, fun and stress free wedding experience where you and your guests enjoy every moment then these are the people to make it happen – couldn’t recommend highly enough!Matt & Hayley
We can’t thank you enough for making our day so special. You are a Rock Star! Absolutely everyone commented about how beautiful the ceremony was (and we totally lucked out with the weather).
Thank you for coming to check on me also! I had everything planned to the minute but my dress ended up being more complicated than I gave it credit for. After you came back I went into high gear, had a few laughs and away we went. It was a perfect day and just what we wanted. Thank you for everything and a lovely ceremony!Larissa & John
My husband and I got married through Young Hip & Married and it is the most amazing service we have had. Our officiant’s name was Layne and he was the absolute sweetest and the most relaxed. 10/10 would recommend for anybody!Darcye & George
- Shawn really made our day amazing! He had great energy and we are so happy we had him be a part of our wedding day! Both my wife and I were pretty nervous to be the center of attention and Shawn took charge! I would recommend Shawn and his team over and over again. He’s a professional, easy to deal with and anyone would be lucky to have him at their wedding! Thank you Shawn for all of your help and for being a huge part of our wedding day!Duane & Tessa
We were married in September 2019, and the experience we had with Beth from start to finish was one of the best parts of our wedding. We had selected a full package, allowing Beth to write and direct the ceremony that best fit our style, but which also allowed her to be comfortable in her style as well. It was fabulous to be in such good hands, to be understood so well, and to have someone convey our story so eloquently. The ceremony was a major highlight, and we’ll cherish the vows and story she wrote forever. Thanks Beth!Tivohn & Katie
We had the most fantastic experience with Young Hip & Married and can not recommend them enough. The communication prior to the wedding was brilliant and completely stress free. Shawn and Erica were both amazing and we are absolutely in love with our wedding photos.Charlene & Simon
From the second we met with Denise, we knew that we made the right decision. The whole experience was the perfect amount of “laid back” that we were looking for but also very professional. The ceremony was my husband and my very favourite part of the entire day and we owe that to Young Hip and Married. We are so thankful that we went with them and 100 percent recommend them!Tania & Zac
We so appreciate being able to have our little elopement on such short notice even though it was pouring rain on the day, we braved the weather and so appreciate that our officiant (Kristen) and camera woman (Naomi) did as well for us!Brittany & Nick
Such a great experience using YHM for my wedding. Super professional and lovely people – thank you!!Michelle & Craig
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
Jane was our officiant, and she was just perfect. She made us feel comfortable, was very communicative, provided ceremony script options and allowed us to write our own, and was smiling and laughing the whole way.
Erica was our photographer, and it was obvious that she is very experienced. She was so much fun to work with! We got way more than was expected, and felt we were in good hands.
All in all, Young Hip & Married was just ideal for our small wedding of 20 guests. I sincerely recommend them for their ease, experience, great attitudes, and very reasonable prices. Thank you!Matt Little
My husband and I were lucky enough to work with Erika as our officiant. Her and the Young, Hip & Married team did such a good job with making the process run smoothly and were so helpful along the way. Erika came up with such a beautiful ceremony speech that was personalized and made it such a memorable moment in our special day to us and our guests.
Erika made the whole process so comfortable and natural for the both of us. Her communication with us from the very beginning all the way up to the wedding day was great. We feel very lucky to have had her as our officiant on our special day! We can’t thank you enough Erika!Mikayla & Max
YH&M were fantastic from start to finish! As a couple wanting a non religious marriage ceremony, we were finding it restrictive seeking a commissioner who would give us much control of our day and let us have it as casual as we wanted it. I was lucky enough to witness Shawn conduct a wedding ceremony at Cleveland Dam when I happened to be there one day. I was so impressed I cancelled the commissioner I had previously booked (who wasn’t even interested in meeting us before the day), spoke with YH&M (who were very relaxed & friendly from the get go) and booked Shawn with just a little over a week to go before our big day. Shawn catered the ceremony to us and what we wanted. I cannot quite explain the relief this gave us to know that we could finally have the day we had dreamed of! I highly recommend YH&M for anyone whether they are young, old, religious, non religious, traditional or want an original wedding day. They made our day extremely special! Thank you 🙂Emma & Elliott
We were married by Randy Hamm from Young Hip and Married. Randy did an excellent job! He took the time to get to know me and my husband and what we wanted for our wedding, and he crafted a perfect ceremony that was highly personal and emotional. We also found the coaching services offered to be useful and gave us an opportunity to look at all aspects of our relationship before the big day. I would absolutely recommend this business to anyone looking to get married!Robyn
- Thank you Kristen for being part of our wedding! We loved your humor and the overall flow of the ceremony. We had many people come up to us saying how well the ceremony was!We could not have done this without you! Thank you for all your support. Was so great to meet you and to have you there for our day.Keeley & Ian
My husband and I eloped and happened to find this company online. They made it such a great experience; everything was taken care of and there was always communication. With Covid restrictions and all, they kept in contact and updated us. Gerry was absolutely fantastic; I couldn’t praise him any higher. He made our elopement super special and treated us like family. Amber was so much fun working with her as a photographer and our sneak peak pics are amazing – super excited to see the rest. All in all, absolutely 5/5 would 10000% recommend. This company was amazing to work with and our experience was better than I could have thoughtPaige & Brian
An essential for any elopement! They helped us set a date, time, booked an officiant, and photographer, and even helped us find our perfect location. We would recommend them to anyone!Lauren & Ethan
Young Hip and Married was a great company to work with for our ceremony. We worked with Shawn and he was amazing! He is so kind and loving and really wanted to get to know us to create a personal ceremony that was not canned or boring but truly about us and our love. Shawn was easy to work with and he changed things in the ceremony at our request to make it more personal. On the wedding day, Shawn did an amazing job. His energy was infectious and he really did make the wedding memorable. Everyone should work with Young Hip and Married!Margaret & Devon
My husband and I wanted a small, romantic wedding ceremony and we are so happy we chose Young, Hip and Married. Our wedding was officiated by Shawn Miller on May 7th and it was simply amazing! We had a chance to skype with him before the ceremony to share our story and let him know what we were looking for. It was so much more than what we excepted. Shawn was professional, enthusiastic, welcoming and authentic. The ceremony was meaningful and full of emotions. We feel extremely grateful that he created such a memorable moment for us with his spirit and his words. Thank you so much Shawn!!!Joanna
Beth was so awesome to work with! We weren’t sure of exactly what we wanted, but Beth offered us several helpful starting points that made our preparations very easy. She really listened to us and prepared a beautiful ceremony that really captured who we are and she made us feel at ease throughout the whole process. We could not have hoped for a better officiant. Thank you, Beth, for making this such a great experience!
Thank you for making our day extremely easy and special! We have been reflecting on the experience, and we keep commenting that you were the perfect person for the job, making us feel at ease and letting us be ourselves throughout the ceremony.Soo & Matt
Lani did an absolutely fabulous job of our ceremony. Everyone was raving about what a great job she did officiating all night long. We’re SO happy we chose her to be our officiant!Julia & Oliver
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
- We would absolutely recommend using YHM to officiate your wedding. They are organized, helpful and work with you to create a special ceremony thats fits your ideal day. Peter was fabulous – he worked with us to adapt a ceremony that was tailored to us; we had many comments from guests that he was genuine, a great speaker, and that he fit with the day perfectly. Thank you!Alana & Albert
Lauren was amazing was all that we wanted and more. Lauren wrote our ceremony and gave us the best day; all our guests loved her and expressed how friendly she was. We would do it all again!Wayne & Brian
It was awesome. Professional from the beginning when I contacted until the last minutes of the ceremony. I would recommend to any couples ready to tie the knot. Thank you for all the help!Don & Nga Le
From initial contact with Rebecca and onto our officiant, Shawn, and photographer, Erica, we felt welcomed and relaxed with the whole process! We really wanted it to feel like an intimate, elopement-style wedding but it ended up being so much more. Our location at the Nitobe Gardens felt really special, and the arrival of the team calmed down our nerves and helped us really focus on the moment between just the two of us. We had so many compliments from our guests on how wonderful and impressive Shawn was! As we didn’t know the script beyond our own vows, it ended up being very beautiful and customized based on us! After the ceremony, Erica did a great job helping us round everyone up for group photos. She also was very personable and does her job with ease! Hands down we will recommend you guys to our friends!Sharleen & Bobby
- Thanks for EVERYTHING Jason. So many people told us that this was one of the best ceremonies they had ever been to. We couldn’t be happier with it ourselves!Justine & Blake
We chose YH&M after meeting with two other officiants. Cory was our officiant and he was awesome! He took the time to hear what we loved about each other and made sure we didn’t get a boring, run of the mill ceremony. My husband was very nervous about speaking in front of 80 people and Cory made him feel at ease. He helped us to create vows that were “us” and kept our guests laughing and tuned in to the ceremony. We are so happy with our choice and highly recommend YH&M! They made our ceremony something we can look back on with fond memories.Karesse
We had the pleasure to have Kadee marry us in beautiful Stanley Park. She was an absolute delight, such a lovely personality. She is very professional and provided us with many samples of the ceremony script and made sure we were comfortable with everything. She always got back to us almost instantly. She performed the ceremony so elegantly and just something about her personality is so lovely that made the ceremony so very beautiful and so very special to us. I highly recommend YH&M, especially Kadee; they made us so very happy.Anita & Steven
Stephen Anderson was a wonderful officiant! My sister got married this weekend, and Stephen was the perfect fit for the small gathering we had at Lighthouse Park. He met us in the parking lot and we all walked down the trail together to the spot the couple had picked. At no point did we ever feel rushed. Stephen was was very personable, very well put together, and really made their ceremony effortless. He stood off to the side, which was much appreciated, so we could get some awesome photos of just the couple during their special moment. 10/10 would recommend!Natalie P
Shawn was very helpful and helped to make our ceremony very personal. Our guests commented as to how personal and interesting our ceremony was and that was what I really wanted. It’s great to have a fun party after but let’s be real, its really all about the ceremony, right? Shawn is well worth the costs and he really is available for any help you may need.Jennifer Curpen
On time, very professional and very accommodating to our situation. Made the day great!Melanie & Bryan
Lani did a phenomenal job officiating our wedding ceremony! Would recommend her for anyone that would like to really personalize your ceremony and make it your own.Karen Rickards
Our first meeting with Shawn from Young Hip & Married confirmed that we were working with a caring and professional officiant. We went with the Rocking Wedding package and were so happy with the level of detail and the way that our personal story was told throughout the ceremony. Shawn was easy to get a hold of and always responded quickly to our questions. Our wedding hit a major hiccup when our venue was vandalized and we had to find a new location for our ceremony and reception. Shawn did everything to make sure that his part in our wedding caused no additional stress. He was flexible with the location and timeline for the day, assured us that he would adjust his intro to suit our new location, and took in stride that our wedding took place outside in a downpour of rain. Our ceremony went smoothly, beautifully, and was so meaningful to us both! We couldn’t recommend Shawn more!Nicole & Alexander
Cory of Young Hip and Married was wonderful!! He made our wedding so personal and special. Our guests commented all evening how lovely and unique the ceremony was! Thank you YH&M!!Lauren Buksevics
Arranging an officiant with the Young Hip and Married team was easy and quick! We had Johnathan as our officiant and we can’t say enough positive things; he was kind, and easy to talk to. He was so friendly and open to ideas. He also gave us some really great advice. The ceremony went off without a hitch! Johnathan was funny, interesting, sweet and engaging; our guests loved him, we loved him. It was so so great. I would recommend going with YH&M to ANYONE who plans on getting hitched! Very positive and amazing experience.Erica
Our officiant, Lise, braved backroads and mosquitoes to accommodate our non-traditional outdoors wedding. She took extra time to tailor a ceremony that was fun and encompassed our personalities and lifestyles. We all enjoyed the ceremony immensely! I would highly recommend Lise to anyone wishing to have a great wedding!Barbara & Patrick
Lorraine gave us an absolutely beautiful ceremony. She was calmed, patient and also containing of all the emotions that came up before and during our ceremony, which my husband and I really appreciated. She took her time to get to know us and customize a very special ceremony for us, taking into consideration all of our preferences. We are very thankful for her.
Thank you so much Lorraine!Susan & Jarod
Chris-Ann Lake is an amazing Officiant! Her service was top notch and I’m 100 percent happy with her! She provided us with both witnesses and a location for our Elopement!! I highly recommend her! 🙂Mike & Kelens
We booked a really tight schedule with YH&M and they managed to do it on time. We were outstandingly attended by Shawn who delivered an awesome and caring ceremony for us with beautiful, kind and loving words. Perfect!Thiago Tunes
Awesome group of people! Super inviting, the officiant, Cory, supported and understood how to make our wedding and our marriage super special.Tasha Baynes
We had a wonderful experience with Young Hip & Married. The officiant who we chose, Lani, did an amazing job ensuring that our ceremony was perfect for us. She was caring and personable and her enthusiasm was infectious. She really went above and beyond everything we expected!Mallory & Lukasz
Over and above all my expectations. They were able to answer all of my questions and helped us to make a truly unique and personal wedding experience. We loved the entire experience with YH&M and I have recommended them to many of my friends.Colleen & Dominic
Randy Hamm was the officiant for our wedding and he was OUTSTANDING!! All of our guests raved about how good he was. He got everyone involved, and kept them entertained. If you are looking for an officiant that is unlike any other, Randy is your guy! The team at Young Hip & Married were very easy to correspond with (which isn’t always the case with wedding vendors, unfortunately). Randy gave us the ceremony that we were dreaming of. He kept it light hearted and very personalized. We didn’t want anything scripted. He was able to tell a story about US. Thank you Randy! *round of applause*Anh
Our relationship with YHM has extended for far longer than we anticipated – thanks covid! – and for this reason, among others, we are incredibly grateful for the professionalism, flexibility, and warmth demonstrated by Kadee (who officiated our legal ceremony in 2020) and Shawn (who officiated our larger wedding in 2021). Shawn on the big day itself was simply amazing – we received many compliments from guests on his “stage presence” not to mention how he contributed to the overall ceremony. We’re so thankful we chose YHM to be part of what turned out to be a very unconventional journey!Patrick & Allison
We planned our elopement in less than 2 weeks, and your team was so accommodating! You matched us with the best person ever! KADEE was absolutely amazing. She did things above and beyond for us! It was all so magical up on Grouse Mountain! THANK YOU Kadee and Young Hip & Married!! You made our journey to I Do’s enjoyable and not stressful! Thanks!
- Did a helicopter elopement with Young Hip & Married and it was amazing! We loved our officiant Beth and how she worked with us to completely personalize our ceremony! Also loved our photographer Erica who helped us feel less awkward in front of the camera and made us laugh shaking off the nerves! The pilots at Sky Helicopters were aweeeesome and made our ride so fun (and safe!)! It’s beautiful up there guys! Highly recommend Young Hip & Married and their helicopter elopement package! Thanks for the unforgettable day!Randi Roberts
- 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
I would highly recommend Young Hip & Married to anyone looking for an incredible elopement in a stress-free environment. They make the experience feel so personalized! Thank you for an incredible day!Carly & Colin
Bobbi was our officiant at our wedding and she was amazing – we couldn’t have asked for anything else. Her words were so touching and moving that there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. I would highly recommend Bobbi, and Young, Hip & Married to everyone.Andrea
Marilyn from YH&M officiated our wedding and we could not be happier with how it went! We wanted our ceremony to be heartfelt, romantic, and laid back, but we also wanted it to be fun. My husband and I are not formal people and we knew we wanted to be able to laugh and maybe crack a few jokes. It was evident from our first meeting with Marilyn that she was the perfect person for the job! Our ceremony was everything we could have asked for and more; Marilyn was able to capture the spirit of our relationship so well. Multiple guests commented on how much they loved our ceremony, how beautiful it was, and that they felt like they were truly a part of the wedding rather than just spectators watching it play out. Thank you Marilyn for braving the rain with us and for all you did to help make our wedding day so magical!Ashley & Trevor
We were married last month by Jane from Young Hip and Married and I can’t say enough good things about her! We didn’t have a rehearsal but it didn’t feel chaotic at all because she directed everyone subtly and seamlessly on the day and had such beautiful things to say.
We love YHM’s vibe of celebrating weddings of any size or style with enthusiasm and inclusivity! Highly recommend!Holly & George
Awesome group of people! Super inviting, the officiant, Cory, supported and understood how to make our wedding and the beginning of our marriage super special.Natasha
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
- 2017 Fairmont Hotel Wedding
My husband and I did a Sky helicopter elopement with Peter as our officiant. It was such an amazing experience, making our marriage intimate but memorable. Peter was diligent, organized and did everything he could to make our ceremony personal. We can’t recommend him enough!Laura & Jamie
Jane was our wedding officiant. She is one most likely to gather a huge crowd whenever she talks. She is inspiring and professional on her approach. Hence, our wedding went well as planned. It was a simple garden wedding at Vandusen Botanical Garden, but still it was too magical. Thanks to all your preparations and efforts to make our wedding such a huge success. Another person to thank is Clint, the photographer. He was the wonderful person who assisted us professionally when to take our pose. He was excellent at his job. He delivered as promised and his pictures were magnificent. Couldn’t ask for any other person to take our pictures on our most memorable day. Lastly, thanks to your company, Young Hip & Married. More power to you guys, and God bless! All smiles from us.Reman & Myra
Shawn was simply amazing! So many of our guests commented on how they felt like he was marrying them too 🙂 He really connected with the crowd, and was such a please to deal with during the whole process.Christina & Michael
We are very glad that we chose Young Hip & Married for our wedding. Erica & Kadee were both equally professional and relaxed. They were very flexible and responsive to our requests. The ceremony went smoothly and the views were spectacular. The ride in the helicopter was very smooth, and the pilot friendly and professional. We were pleased with our photos. On the whole, we HIGHLY recommend Young Hip & Married!Stephen & Elizabeth
Our marriage commissioner, Marilyn, took the time to get to know us and our story, was organized and charismatic and very fun. Since our wedding many of our guests have commented on how excellent she was and how it was one of the best ceremonies they had ever attended.Dustin & Kaley
Rebecca from Young Hip & Married arranged our ceremony in Vancouver, we came from Australia. Fantastic to deal with, nothing was too much trouble. Our celebrant, Marilyn was absolutely beautiful and perfect for our family to celebrate and formalize over 22 years together. Thank you all, Toni, Lindy, and family.Toni & Belinda
Fantastic ceremony with Kadee Smedley! Right from the start, Young Hip and Married was easy to work with, along with our Marriage Officiant Kadee who was outstanding. Kadee was warm, personable, and her personalized write up for the ceremony was outstanding with humour, which we wanted. She is quick on her feet too, which helped when the cruise ship horn interrupted our ceremony but Kadee quickly worked it into our ceremony and made it memorable!!! All the guests loved it!! Thank you Kadee!Julia & Shafik
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
- If you’re looking for a company with an amazing officiant service for your wedding ceremony, I highly recommend Young Hip and Married. They have a team of officiants that will take your vision of our ceremony and bring it to life.
We had the pleasure of working with Erika Enns. After our first meet and greet with Erika, we knew we found the perfect officiant for our wedding.
We all sat down in a coffee shop and talked about the vision we had and what was important to us for our ceremony. Erika was everything we needed – kind, full of energy, creative and most important it was clear that she really loves love. Erika took the time to ask all the questions to capture us as a couple. She made sure that she knew what our love story was and what it meant to us. She was flexible with our schedule as we had just evacuated from the 2021 floods. We spoke about vows and my husband and I were honest that we were not great with words. Erika had made us feel comfortable and sent us all the tools we needed to help guide us through our vow process.
Following our meet and greet, Erika asked for some contact information of close friends and family. She reached out with a questionnaire to get the scoop on our relationship for the ones who are special to us and who had supported our relationship from the very beginning.
After receiving her questionnaires back, she got to work. After a short time, she sent us the first draft. As my soon-to-be husband and I read through the ceremony she created personally for us, we got emotional. We had moments of getting teary eyed and moments of laughter. She captured us perfectly. She put us into words that we could not.Erika was very open to adjustments to the ceremony she had written. We requested some small adjustments and she was happy to make them. She was very clear that she was here for us and wanted to make sure our ceremony was everything we invisioned. Erika sent us the second draft and assured us that if we thought of anything else we wanted to add or change to reach out to her at any time.
When it came time for our rehearsal, she was thrilled to meet us at our venue. With our wedding party in tow, Erika guided us through the ceremony from start to finish. She made the whole process so easy for us and continued to question us on our views. We really felt like she had our backs from start to finish.
When it came to the big day we were relaxed knowing that everything was planned and that there would be no surprises. Our ceremony was everything we could have asked for and more.
If you’re looking for an amazing officiant to bring your ceremony to life we could not be stronger in our feelings that Erika is an amazing option. She is a person we will recommend to everyone we meet on their own search for the perfect officiant. Our experience with her was amazing. The journey we went through to plan our ceremony is a memory we will hold close forever. Thank you so much to Erika for everything you had done to support us and create our perfect for us ceremony.Thank you so much for the beautiful experience.Cassidy & Raymond
Jonathan M. was an amazing officiant for our ceremony. We wanted short and sweet but personable and it was just that. He was a great fit. I would highly recommend him for officiating services for brides/grooms-to-be.Holly Miller
Shawn did an amazing job with our ceremony! We had to make a lot of adjustments to our original plan due to Covid restrictions and Shawn was so accommodating! We could not have been happier to have YH&M and Shawn be a part of our big day! We could not be happier!Cassandra & Michael
Young Hip & Married were amazing to work with! They were super responsive and the process was super clear and easy to understand from the very beginning. Beth Carlson-Malena was our officiant and she made our wedding an absolute dream and we both feel so blessed that she was. From our initial meeting both my husband and I felt an instant connection and everyone at the wedding thought she was a life-long friend as she knew us so intimately and the ceremony reflected us so well. Thank you for making our ceremony a dream come true!Amanda & Joel
Thank you again Kristen, for doing such an amazing job with our ceremony. Everyone told us that it was so clearly a reflection of us and that makes us so happy! We’ve just returned from our honeymoon and have been looking at the footage that our videographer shot of the ceremony—it brings tears of happiness to our eyes!Eliza and Ryan
Getting married is stressful, however you plan to do it. Finding Young Hip and Married made it so much easier for us. They guided us through all the steps like the pros they are, were very responsive and accommodating throughout, and on the day, our officiant (Kadee) and photographer (Erica) were both super wonderful and supportive. I really have no idea how we would have gotten through it without them. I can’t recommend this whole service more; you’d be crazy not to use them! Also, if you are eloping, the helicopter package was well worth it, for many reasons not in the least the great story and photos to pass along to friends and family. Good luck!Jonathan & Sunny
We originally wanted to elope but YHM had an option of elopement with 20 guests and photographer. We are very happy we went with this as our families wanted to be witnesses. Both the photographer (Sarah) and the officiant (Erika) were great! There were some last minute changes and they were very flexible. Definitely recommend this company.Linsey & Nicholas
I 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)
They were very open and flexible with our unique marriage arrangements and easy to work with. The ceremony went off without a hitch and all of the administration work was handled swiftly and professionally. Highly recommended.Kasan & Hiromi
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.Richelle & Adam
Our officiant Chris-Ann was so lovely. She made our small elopement ceremony very fun, easy, and memorable 🙂 Thank you to Young Hip & Married for connecting us!Morgan & Patrick
We are about to leave for our destination wedding, but had our legal ceremony prior to our trip. It was easy to book and plan our ceremony. It was so much more than just a legal ceremony—the vows were a perfect fit for us, and the hand ceremony was truly heartfelt and very meaningful! Our officiant, Mark was very personable and professional—he made our day perfect!Dana
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
- Everything went so well the day of. I had slight bride anxiety and both Erica and Kristen were so amazing and lovely to work with!!! I can’t express how grateful we are that it all worked out.We will definitely recommend you guys to others!!! Everyone was so understanding; we were totally scattered and changed plans etc. In the end, everything worked out because you guys are professionals and have things handled. This really is a great way to get married!!!
Kristen! You are so sweet! It was great to work with you and you really made the day so special! Everything turned out just great and we are very happy!Lauren & Neil
We were planning an elopement wedding in Vancouver from another province; the Office Goddess at Young Hip and Married was so responsive and picked the best possible officiant for us! From the moment we met Kadee it felt like we were meeting an old friend. She was so personable and ensured the ceremony was everything we could have imagined and more! She was also so responsive and answered every question we asked. Thank you everyone at Young Hip & Married that made our big day the best day ever!Heather & Dylan
I had been following Young Hip & Married for a few years, always impressed with their annual “Love In the Square” elopement event held on Valentine’s Day. When my partner & I decided to get married, there was no hesitation in choosing to work with YH&M! We wanted a quiet, simple, no-frills moment to celebrate our union, and YH&M delivered that. Shawn, our officiant, and Erica, our photographer are the ultimate power couple! Both super sweet, they took excellent care of us. They suggested the perfect quiet spot in the forest, and gave us a beautiful ceremony. The wedding vows course was an added bonus! So helpful. Considering we didn’t exchange rings or anything like that, our vows were the focal point of our day. The course helped us make sure they would be perfect. YH&M was such an easy choice for our special day.Julie & Wes
You were so nice and precise, and everything went well; you guys made our day. I am so so happy you enjoyed our local cuisine, it was our pleasure. Thanks again once more and have a blessed day.Austin & Rita
Janie was an incredible companion on one of the most special days of our lives. She listened deeply to the story of our love and worked with us to craft a ceremony that celebrated what was most important to us about our journey. Her carefully crafted words and confident presence made space for us to laugh, savor the moment, and celebrate with those closest to us. If you are looking for an officiant who is equal parts organized, thoughtful, hilarious, and attentive, Janie’s the one for you. We cannot recommend her enough!Liz & Dexter
We had the pleasure to meet with Rhona from Young Hip & Married. She was fabulous. Really contributed to making our wedding day special. We had many compliments from our guests about her, how personal she made the ceremony and how pleasant she was. Would highly recommend Rhona.M & M
- Jane was incredible! We felt so taken care of and her energy was perfect for our wedding ceremony.Shane & Stephanie
- We wanted to thank you so much for making our day perfect. You were so helpful, easy to deal with and cool. Our families also commented on how great you were. We are so happy you married us on our special day. Working with you was such a pleasure.
Thanks again, we are so happy!
Riley and BillRiley & Bill
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
Shawn was a great officiant, and we highly recommend hiring him. He helped us get our wedding details in place, and was extremely helpful whenever we needed anything.Sara & Scott
- Thank you so much for everything, Kristen!! You were awesome and made us both feel so comfortable on our big day, even though we were shaking with nerves. The ceremony was easier than I thought it would be. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!Morgan & Daren
Cory was awesome! He delivered our story in a way that made our guests feel like they were there throughout our journey together. He was able to incorporate cultural traditions like the cord and the veil ceremony but made it more modern. We loved everything about our ceremony!Marie and Mahmoud
Shawn was able to captivate the attention of 300+ people with ease. My entire wedding went perfectly and it wouldn’t have been possible without Shawn’s help to start things off that way. Thank you so much, Shawn! You are the only person I will recommend to my friends and family!Jon
We feel very blessed to be married by such a genuine and loving person as yourself – thank you for working so hard to make it all perfect for us. It was the most wonderful day of my life so far and I still feel like I am in a dream. Thank you for your blessings in our marriage.Amanda & Scott
The crew at Young Hip & Married were all so wonderful, responsive and attentive especially during this crazy pandemic year. We were quickly matched with the perfect officiant (shoutout to Beth, you were PHENOMENAL) and the whole experience from start to finish was simple, clear, and fun. We loved every moment of planning our ceremony, from zoom chats with our officiant to helping edit the final script – and the day of was FLAWLESS as well! Beth did such a wonderful job with the ceremony, everyone adored her and laughed in all the right places. 100/10 service and experience!Kat & Kelsey
The Young Hip & Married team were absolutely amazing. We chose Jodi as our officiant, and we couldn’t be happier with everything. We first met with Jodi several months in advance where she got to know us. As we got closer, we got a draft of how the ceremony would look so we could edit anything that we wanted. When it came to the rehearsal, Jodi made sure we all knew exactly how the ceremony was going to go. As a result, the day went perfectly and we received compliments all night on how great Jodi was. Highly recommend her and the entire Young Hip & Married team.Nicholas & Samantha
My husband and I knew we wanted to have someone officiate our wedding with personal stories, no references to religion, and good old fun. We reached out to YH&M and knew that this was a versatile team to make sure our guests would be entertained and our vows would still be genuine. Beth met with us and asked about our story from start to finish and even reached out to our close friends (we provided contact details) to find gems to sprinkle into the ceremony. Our pictures speak for themselves – everyone laughed and some cried. I’m excited to see our wedding video to listen back to our story personally crafted for our special day.Kim & Will
Shawn was amazing. He was friendly and helpful. Our ceremony was simple and quick and exactly what we wanted. If you are not sure with what service you want then they are very helpful.Corinne Lee
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
Shawn was our officiant, and we cannot rave about him enough! From the beginning of the process right until the end, he captured every detail, calmed our nerves and brought such a positive, personal and fun vibe to our special day! Thank you Shawn!Tarryn & Ryan
I contacted YH&M via an email on Thursday. By end of night on Friday, Jackie-Dean arranged a last minute officiant for our elopement for the next morning in Vancouver. I was so impressed at how quick and responsive she was. Beth, our officiant, was awesome; we both loved the ceremony she put together for us! Our ceremony was very quick as it was only the 2 of us and 2 witness, but I have all confidence with YH&M! Thank you 🙂Wynnter & Yolin
I never imagined getting married could be so fun and easy! From the very start, staff were very responsive with clear instructions what to do – we even get a reminder what not to forget on the day of. Charlie & Heather are super chill and go above and beyond to be there for your needs with some good professional advice on preparing for the ceremony and photos. We loved our wedding day and not have to worry about anything but showing up !P & B
Nothing but THE BEST! Shawn was our officiant, and made our day so smooth, comfortable and intimate. I wouldn’t change a thing. We got our video back last month, and the video really focused and used Shawn’s part as it was so unique and special. I highly recommend this company!Belle & Mike
Really easy and Stephen A. was amazing. We were looking for a very intimate and personal ceremony and he delivered. The whole process was great. I would certainly recommend!Ryan & Najia
We had a fantastic lovely experience working with Beth from Young Hip & Married. We are a queer couple getting married, and we wanted a wedding officiant who would make this wedding special and ensure that our story is told well. Beth was nothing short of amazing, and it was such a smooth and wonderful process. We are thankful she told our love story to our best friends. I recommend her, and Young Hip & Married, wholeheartedly.Danny & Matthew
Thank you Shawn for the amazing elopement ceremony! Damian and I couldn’t have asked for a more heartfelt and romantic day. You attention to detail while weaving pieces of the two of us into our ceremony was amazing and very personal! We can’t recommend you enough!Natasha & Damian
Couldn’t have asked for a better team to get us married! We wanted something quick and meaningful and we got all that and more. Beth worked with us to create the perfect little ceremony and our photographer Sarah was awesome at capturing all the special moments during and as we wandered around by the lake. Shout out to Sky Helicopters (and our pilot, Aaron) for an awesome adventure and the thoughtful gift. Everyone was super communicative and great to work with. We’ve bragged about how easy and awesome the whole thing was to all our friends so we figured we’d brag about it here too. Thanks again to the team at Young, Hip and Married for such an amazing experience xxBrandon & Rob
Let me tell you this….there wasn’t a dry eye in the house! We cannot even count how many times we have been told that that was the best wedding anyone has ever been too! The ceremony was out of this world and we could not be happier! Denise was an absolute god send, angel, poet; she helped us create the ceremony of our dreams!Syndi & James
I cannot say enough good things about this business! They are wonderfully warm, fantastically flexible, quick with the responses, and the quality of the service is to die for! They truly helped make our day an unforgettable one by doing their best to make us happy, and they succeeded fully! They are a definite go-to for anyone getting married. They will not let you down, and they will bend over backwards to bring a smile to your face and help lighten the load on your shoulders.Corrina
Like everyone else this year, we had to cancel the big wedding and wanted to elope in a special way with just the two us. We couldn’t have picked a better company to help us through with that! Our helicopter elopement was everything we could have ever hoped for and it was a perfect (and SUPER romantic!) way to tie the knot. Daniel and I want to send our warmest thank you to Shawn & Erica. We couldn’t recommend you more! <3Gia & Daniel
Kadee was super professional and made it easy with the planning of the vows and reading for the ceremony. During the ceremony she knew exactly what to do and when and wrangled our guests like a pro. It was the perfect day and perfect ceremony- like clockwork. She’s obviously done this a few times before!Philippa & Pontus
We got the Elopement Plus package. YH&M really came through with introducing us to our amazing officiant, Beth. Our ceremony was tiny and informal and Beth tailored everything specifically to us. It felt very ‘us’ in every way and I couldn’t have asked for more.Emily & Corey
Thank you to Anthony for being part of one of the most important days of our lives. He helped make our wedding day beautiful and memorable with his genuine, personable, and peaceful presence.Roberta & Jason
My wife and I could not have been happier with our experience with YH&M over the course of planning our wedding and the day itself. They were exceptionally accommodating as our plans changed with COVID, and Jackie-Deane provided fantastic customer service throughout. Shawn provided the perfect energy and feeling we had hoped for during the ceremony itself, which was personalized to us as a couple and our story. Could not more highly recommend YH&M as a great addition to your wedding day.Tom & Katherine
Thanks to Young Hip & Married and to Lauren for making our wedding ceremony so special. They really take the time to listen to your needs and to hold your vision. Both my husband and I highly recommend Young Hip & Married to anyone looking for a warm and meaningful ceremony.Mirelle & Jesse
We had Chris-Ann from Young Hip & Married as our officiant and we were thrilled! She was very organized, helpful and so hilarious in helping us with our wedding ceremony. Would for sure recommend.Cayley & Rob
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
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
Cory Dueck from YHM, married us on Sunday May 28, 2017. We had an overall great experience, and have heard countless compliments about the flow and feeling of our ceremony from guests.Tara Borgstrom
- Young Hip & Married were the perfect addition to our special day. They were friendly and helpful and relieved some of the stress that can come from a hectic time. Jon was especially great. The ceremony he performed was just what we wanted. Thanks everyone!Christine & Kevin
- I cannot thank you guys enough for making this happen for us! Rebecca (customer relations), it was the best experience/day of our lives. We are still in awe about the helicopter elopement. The pilots, our photographer (Erica), officiant (Kadee) were absolutely amazing and we could not have asked for a better elopement. All of you guys made us feel so special and were all just perfect. Again, we cannot say one bad thing about this elopement and I would have paid thousands of dollars more! It was absolutely perfect and I have you all to thank you for that. You worked really hard and made this happen for us and again thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.Thank you, Young Hip & Married, for making our helicopter elopement one of the best days of our lives! We will never forget it.Alaysha & Darren
We can’t begin to explain how truly amazing every aspect of our helicopter elopement was. Young Hip & Married were incredibly helpful, accommodating and responded promptly. We were ecstatic to have Shawn as our officiant and Erica as our photographer. They were both very personable. Thank you Shawn and Erica for making our day so special and for being such sweethearts! We couldn’t have been happier with our decision! Truly top notch, highly recommend!Tara & Isaiah
Amazing to deal with. Brought ideas to the table we hadn’t thought of and recommended ideas.Avery & Danica
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 allRaven & James
You truly made our day special and we really enjoyed working with you. Thanks so much. You will forever be part of our memories of this special day.Scott & Nicole
Cory Dueck was amazing! We could not have asked for a more personable guy who took the time to get to know us. Everyone who attended the ceremony said that Cory was the best officiant they had ever witnessed! Thank you so much!Paul & Sam
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
Young Hip and Married were super responsive and helpful. Our officiant, Beth, was great and really helped make our day special. I can’t wait to see the photos from our photographer Amber! They were both professional, friendly and fun. If you book YH&M you also get their vow writing course for free. The course is ok, but free so worth it.Kristen & Raphael
A HUGE thank you from Eli and I for making our day better than we could ever have imagined. You nailed the ceremony and our love for each other, and were such a joy to work with.
Couldn’t have asked for anyone better to have made our marriage official. Thank you so much.Eli & Anna-Maria
Thank you Kadee for doing such a great job! We wanted a civil + religious ceremony and we got just that. We especially loved the blessing you wrote just for us, to bless our wedding. Thank you again!Nancy & Mike
Thanks, Kristen! We are really thankful to you for playing such a pivotal role in the whole affair and for dealing with our last minute planning with great forbearance! You’ll be forever part of our memory of this experience. Thanks again.Samuel & Christine
Jane was our officiant and she did a fantastic job! Our ceremony was fun and sweet and all our family and friends LOVED it! People said it was very unique and refreshing to have such a thoughtful ceremony… my husband and I would recommend paying a little extra to have someone who is invested in YOUR ceremony and gets to know you; it makes it so so special. Thank you Jane and YH&M.Jen & Sean
We knew from the very first email that YH&M would be our vendor of choice! Shawn and the rest of the team were so accommodating and welcoming, we instantly felt we were in the right hands. They have guided us through the whole process (including writing our wedding vows!) and Shawn was awesome during our ceremony! It was so personal and heartfelt. We can really feel the dedication and passion he put into his craft. A handful of couples were actually inspired to renew their vows because of the ceremony Shawn has put together. Thank you to the team behind YH&M. May you continue to officiate more happy beginnings, just like you did with ours.Janice & Andrew
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
The team at Young Hip & Married was so wonderful to work with. We were a bit last minute in choosing an officiant and they were very prompt in responding and so accommodating. We chose Shawn as our officiant and he was so considerate and attentive to what we wanted. He was very professional, collaborative and mindful of what we wanted. We also had a small emergency on the day of our rehearsal and he was so kind while we sorted it out. Once we got the rehearsal going, he was so helpful and everyone knew exactly what they had to do on the day of. He put together such a beautiful ceremony and loved what everything he said. We received so many compliments from our guests! Highly recommend Shawn and the team at YH&M!Travis & Diane
Shawn and Erica Miller from Young Hip and Married were fabulous to work with. They gave my husband and I all the liberties we wanted to have the wedding we wanted. Our wedding was perfect in every way. From Shawn’s beautiful words, to our own vows, to the gorgeous location and perfect weather. We can’t wait to see the pictures Erica took throughout our day! Thank you Shawn and Erica for giving Ian and I a wedding day we will never forget!Becky & Ian
Young Hip and Married went above our expectations. I would highly recommend them to anyone. They were great at communicating and very professional. Our wedding turned out amazing thanks to them and we are so happy with the photos we received as well as the ceremony. Thank you for making our day so amazing!Natalie & Max
Getting married abroad seemed a daunting task but Lani pretty much guided us through the entire process ahead of the wedding, held our hands (metaphorically) in making the big decisions, and left us feeling entirely confident for the big day – and all this from the other side of the Atlant
