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
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 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
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
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
When my husband and I started to think about what we wanted out of our wedding ceremony we thought about how we wanted our guests to feel like they were involved in the ceremony. We wanted them to feel like for a moment they were a part of our love story and learned a little more about why we came together to join our lives. Shawn at Young Hip and Married was the only choice for us. He spent so much time getting to know us, getting to know why we fell in love, why we were perfect for one another. He truly captured our essence in the ceremony. He created amazing sections that included our family and friends, getting them to pass around our wedding bands putting their love into them and then a amazing group vow with us. It was so special. We had so many guests coming up to us at our reception saying that the ceremony made them cry and laugh, and made them feel like we brought them into our love story, that was exactly what we wanted and Shawn gave us that. Everyone was telling us how he was so cool, funny and how he really captured us. We wanted our ceremony to be one of the most memorable parts of our wedding, and our guests mirrored that back to us. I will be recommending Shawn to everyone we know because he really married us, our way. Thanks so much Shawn!!Sarah
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
Shawn, at Young Hip & Married, was awesome! We had to postpone our wedding date because of Covid, and Shawn was super flexible and worked with us to make it all happen! We would totally recommend Young Hip & Married to anyone! Thanks for marrying us, Shawn!Amy & Wade
We were planning to do a small yet special ceremony! As we were researching ideas, we came across Young Hip & Married! And I am extremely glad we found them! We did a helicopter elopement with Erika as our officiant and Erica as our photographer. The whole experience was so amazing, and exceeded our expectations by far. We couldn’t be happier with our ceremony. Everybody at Young Hip & Married did a great job! The helicopter ride was very beautiful and we landed by a beautiful lake and got married there! Looking at the photos and videos, it is everything we wanted! We recommend Young Hip & Married to everyone who is looking for a unique and romantic experience for their ceremony.Mehrnoosh & Zephyr
We had Beth Carlson-Malena as our officiant and could not be more happy. From the moment we met her, we knew we had to have her be a part of our wedding. She was super accommodating, thoughtful and guided us through the process in the most smooth way possible. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted thanks to Beth – short, personal, warm & funny. Our guests have been raving about the ceremony and how amazing the officiant was, many asking if she knew us prior since it felt that personal. We would highly recommend Beth!Jess & Sheena
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
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
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
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
- 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
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
A day filled with lots of love, memories, amazement, stress and a foreverness. I am so grateful I came across Young Hip & Married. From the minute we put in our request, until the follow-up after… we couldn’t be more elated with our choice to have Jane and her team be part of our wedding day. Jane thank you for everything. You were professional, kind and very organized. Your guidance and time with us made us feel less stressed and comfortable. You blended in so amazingly into our wedding day and made it so beautifully memorable for us. We can’t say thank enough!! So glad we were able to have you with us and be a part of our special day. Thank you Young Hip and Married. Couples do yourself a favour… book them! Accountable, reliable, in-budget, generous, adaptable, professional… I could go on!Rhea & Dominic
- 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
- 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
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.
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
- Je joins ici quelques photos dans lesquelles tu figures aussi. Sens-toi libre de t’en servir aux fins de promotion si tu le veux. J’aurais aussi une faveur à te demander… serait-ce possible de me remettre une copie des paroles que tu as prononcées lors de notre cérémonie ainsi que le texte que tu as fait lire par nos témoins? J’aimerais bien les inclure dans mon album-souvenir. Merci encore, Terry, pour tes services. Nous en avons été ravis.Nicole
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
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
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
- Young Hip and Married is a very professional service. We contacted them and were connected with Jane Halton. Jane is an amazing officiant. She was very attentive, organized and hosted/wrote/performed a beautiful ceremony for us. We are so happy with having Jane make our wedding day all the more special. Thank you, Jane. Young Hip and Married is an excellent service if you want a reliable, helpful and professional company to help make your wedding day one to remember.Erica Torresan
We couldn’t have been happier with our decision to pick Shawn Miller from YH&M as our wedding officiant! If we had a penny for every time a wedding guest came up to us at the reception and said that that was the best wedding ceremony they’d ever been to, we’d be rich! Shawn was so professional and fun right from our first meeting. He crafted a beautiful, personal ceremony that was the perfect mix of sweet, funny and sentimental. He even helped us write our own vows! Shawn brought such lovely energy and enthusiasm to the whole ceremony (and even the rehearsal), our guests (and of course ourselves!) were delighted and excited. We cannot recommend him enough!Margaret & Nathan
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
- 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
Me and my fiancé had a very small wedding together in Canada which was a massive change to our original plan of being married in Mexico due to the covid restrictions. YHM were amazing, they updated us with regular information and responded to our questions in a timely manner. They adjusted the package so the bride could have a bridal walk down the aisle as her family couldn’t be there (bride from England and husband from Mexico) they helped to make the day extremely special. Jane our officiant was wonderful, she made the ceremony very welcoming, it didn’t feel rushed and she helped us to feel calm. Every word Jane said she related to our situation and made us feel that the day was truly all about us. It was the most perfect day considering the circumstances & we were happy to have YHM a part of our special day !! We would highly recommend !!Stephanie & Brandon
Using Jason Frizzell from Young Hip and Married for our officiant was hands down the BEST decision we could have ever made! He was so accommodating, creative, and encouraging when it came to writing what we wanted for our ceremony. He really let us make it exactly what we wanted and executed it perfectly. He kept in contact with us regarding the ceremony and even just to check up on us – he even Facetimed with us while we were in Germany! He truly took the time to get to know us and on the big day, it was so relaxed because we already knew him so well. One of our groomsmen actually asked during our rehearsal if he was a friend of the family! Thank you Jason and YHM for making out day the BEST DAY EVER!!Hayley & Brendan
Bobbi was professional but you felt like you were also talking to a friend. She was lovely!!Beth
- 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
I could not recommend a company more if you need a wedding officiant. We were introduced to Young Hip and Married through Shawn Miller who introduced us to Jane. We didn’t know what to expect but Jane blew us away. She was professional and sincere; she took time to get to know us and exactly what we wanted. She then set the tone for our wedding in an excellent way and exactly the way we wanted. Many people have told us how impressed they were with her and we absolutely agree. Jane is a fantastic officiant; you will not be disappointed.Derek Fletcher
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 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
We had such a great experience with Young Hip & Married and will recommend to anyone looking for an officiant! We were originally going to go with a marriage commissioner because I didn’t really know what the difference was but I’m glad we went this route in the end as it allowed for more flexibility and personalization for the ceremony. We booked with not much notice (due to COVID a lot of our plans changed and we ended up opting for a helicopter elopement instead.) Rebecca was very responsive and had great communication so it made organizing this part of our ceremony very easy! Our officiant, Beth, was lovely – it was great that we got to meet her beforehand so she got to know us a little bit as a couple. From our initial conversation she was able to pick up on all the little details and incorporate them into the ceremony script. Our elopement was perfect for us and I’m so happy we ended up going with Young Hip & Married.Ashleen & Lance
- 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
“Bobbi was truly the person who was meant to marry us. Once we met her, it felt like we had known her for years. She is such a kind and wonderful person who really brought such a great energy to our ceremony, and helped us tell the story of how we fell in love and had arrived at the day of our wedding. It was us, in every sense. She helped us with our vows and was so in tune with everything that was going on – we really couldn`t have done this without her. Thank you Bobbi!”Emma
From the minute we reached out to Young Hip & Married, we were treated like gold. We felt like they really cared about our vision and providing us with everything we wanted for our special day. Kadee was our officiant and we cannot say enough kind words about her! The instant we met her, we felt happy that it was her that was going to be a part of our special day. Kadee worked with us in ensuring we knew exactly what to expect and she delivered perfectly! We cannot recommend Kadee and the Young Hip & Married team enough! Thank you!Brandy & Jordan
Strongly recommend! Great experience, very in depth asking lots of questing and really getting to know the couple. Fantastic job!Shelby & Chris
YH&M were effortless to deal with. Thank you for being part of our “pop-up” wedding!John & Arwen
Shawn, you set the tone for our wedding. You honestly made our guests feel the love and romance in the air. I had no idea how important your role was until I witnessed it; you took over and let everyone feel our story and you somehow managed to include everyone into the story. We simply ADORE you and what you managed to do for us on our magical day. I’m still receiving calls about you and how you made what is typically boring the best damn part of our wedding. THANK YOU!!! We will cherish the words you spoke forever.
Bobbi Salkeld, our officiant, was amazing and very accommodating! I asked if we could skip the ring exchange and do our vows in French. She said it wasn’t a problem. We eloped and did an intimate knot-tying ceremony in Stanley Park. When we met her that same day, she has this serene energy that made everyone feel comfortable right away. The ceremony was simple but sweet. Honestly, we really couldn’t have asked for a better day! As our rather conservative friend and witness said, “I’ve been to a shitload of weddings and that one has got be one of the nicest ones I’ve been to!” So yes, you should book with them now!
Jane was a gem. She was easy going and relate-able without being too present. The ceremony was quick but still managed to hold a lifetime of emotion. I couldn’t have imagined things going more smoothly. The YH&M service itself was easy, convenient, attentive, and affordable.
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
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
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
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 anyone getting married and who wants their day to be as memorable and special as it can be!Lisa Dunn
Very helpful with any questions we had up to the day. They were so nice and very patient with us, we would strongly recommend them! Thank you Young Hip and Married!Alli & Walter
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
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
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
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
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
- My husband and I were looking for someone special who really understood us to officiate our wedding, and we definitely found that in Young Hip and Married. Our officiant was Erika, and she went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and relaxed with everything, while also having a lot of fun. We would highly recommend them to anyone who are looking at getting an amazing officiant!Cassidy & Jack
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
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
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
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
Shawn Miller was the perfect officiant for our wedding. Not only did he hike up the mountain with us, but he provided us with the most beautiful ceremony filled with touching sentiments and made the experience very personal for us. I highly recommend him.Shana & Kevin
- 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
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
Randy Hamm was absolutely perfect!!!!! I was completely skeptical in this process and also the amount of money it costs compared to a regular commissioner but I would choose Young Hip and Married (and Randy) over and over again!!!! Every single person and the wedding raved about how perfect he was! He was the right amount of funny with the right amount of religious and made the process so fun and so incredibly easy!!! We had people telling us that they wanted a divorce just so that Randy could remarry them all over again!!! We didn’t really want to write vows and Randy had the perfect suggestions and readings for us…it was so memorable and so perfect for us!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH RANDY YOU MADE OUR DAY PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!!!!Monika Romanowski
Our experience with young hip and married was fantastic. We were paired with Jane who made sure our ceremony fit us as a couple. We were able to explain to her how we wanted our guests to feel at our wedding and she did exactly that. Everyone said it was heartfelt and romantic. She also went as far to use some readings we liked and reached out to our friends to get to know us better. She was with us through the whole process, beginning to after the ceremony. We can’t recommend this company enough.Emily & Mitch
- Young Hip & Married are awesome! My wife (wife!!!) and I were married by Shawn with photography by Erica and couldn’t have asked for any better! Both Shawn and Erica were fun and enthusiastic and YH&M found us the most gorgeous location on top of everything else! Thank you!Laurel & Gillian
We got married in our home on Nov 7/21 and Erika Enns was our wedding officiant. She did a great job performing our wedding ceremony in front of our 4 adult children. She was professional and spontaneous and helped make our ceremony a very special and memorable one. I would highly recommend Young Hip & Married if you are looking to tie the knot!Jinet & Michael
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
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
- The BEST way to elope! Young Hip and Married made our elopement amazing and surpassed all of our expectations!Jayme & Brandon
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
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
Our experience with Young Hip & Married and specifically with Shawn was outstanding. Not only were we truly impressed with the wedding ceremony, we enjoyed the entire process of creating it with him. He wrote our love story in a very beautiful, funny and creative way for all of our guests to enjoy. He isn’t just a writer; he is a story teller and brought our story to life! Thank you Shawn for doing such an amazing job. We will never forgot it!
We encourage any and all couples to utilize Young Hip & Married’s services. Shawn always got back to us quickly and answered any questions we had promptly and thoroughly.Adam Blender
The YH&M team is AMAZING!! They were super friendly and organized! We had to change our schedule slightly, and they did not hesitate to accommodate us! Our officiant Jane was AWESOME!! She had a beautiful script prepared for us and was also happy to tweak it to make it sound more like us! Everything was perfect! I am sure that we owe a lot of that to this team – they made everything easy!Annabelle & Cameron
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
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
Bobbi S. was our officiant at our Ferguson Point outdoor wedding. Bobbi was very sweet and she did an awesome job in retelling our story. Our ceremony was overall slightly quirky, concise and to point, as requested. Lovely ceremony that suited our style as a couple! Price was rather high, but the level of personalisation and attention to detail is well worth it.April
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
AMAZING!! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this company, from initial contact to end of photography with Erica it was all perfect and couldn’t have asked for any improvements. Shawn and Erica are some of the most genuine individuals that we have ever come across. They truly are in this business for the right reasons and their passion is obvious. Our guests were all impressed with officiant services, very personalized and fun. Thank you so much so happy I found Young Hip and Married website!Kyla and Scott
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
I don’t even know where to start. Kadee was incredible. She worked with us closely leading up to the day and so we felt like she was a friend which was super important because we wanted a pretty personalized wedding. She also wrote the most beautiful ceremony that really shared our story and on the day of the wedding was professional, funny, and gracious. She made our guests laugh and cry all at the same time which we really wanted. She also didn’t mind that our wedding ceremony stared an hour late. She was amazing!!! I would recommend her 100%.Mia & Connor
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 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
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
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
Our officiant, Shawn, was so supportive and inspiring leading up to and during our elopement! He made our ceremony so fun and easy going! Until today all of our guests keep commenting on how much they enjoyed Shawn’s words and the energy he brought into our special day! Thank you so much again!!! My husband and I would highly recommend this organization to anyone getting married! You won’t regret it 🙂Daniella & Mark
One of the best choices we made for our wedding was booking with YH&M. We were fortunate enough to work with Shawn and Erica and they were absolutely phenomenal!!! We had a small intimate wedding and Shawn created an incredible ceremony for us and it fit us perfectly. Erica did an amazing job with the pictures and they all turned out great. All of our guests spoke so highly of the ceremony and the pictures! We highly recommend Shawn and Erica
to anyone considering Young Hip & Married for their wedding!Cherrilyn Jimenez
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
Thank you so much. It was an amazing day and Kristen made us look so good and organized.
She made the ceremony so spectacular, touching and unique to us. Then was able to add in some humor at our request to keep it light.
We absolutely loved how easy Kristen made the process for us, in fact all of you did – so thank you again.Laurie + Jeff
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 bought the elopement and photography package. Kadee was an amazing officiant. She made us feel comfortable and relaxed. Erica, the photographer was great as well. They made our wedding very special! They showed up on time, were very accommodating and responsive leading up to the ceremony and after. Would highly recommend them!Shanthi & Akhilesh
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
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
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 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
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
Huge shoutout to Peter at Young Hip & Married for officiating our wedding on August 8, 2020! He did an amazing job communicating ahead of time with us, and during our ceremony, was very professional and polite. I actually can’t think of any one specific thing that didn’t go as we expected. Would not hesitate to recommend Young Hip & Married to anybody, and know that your experience will be memorable in the most positive way possible! Thanks Peter, for exceeding our expectations and being awesome at what you do.Jeff & Tammy
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
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 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
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
YH&M was so great. The team was super helpful and supportive throughout the pandemic ups and downs, including numerous date changes. We took Shawn’s really beneficial vow writing course, and Erika, our officiant, was so lovely, organized, and helped create a beautiful ceremony. Can’t recommend them enough!Kate & Raul
Nothing but love for Young Hip and Married. We thoroughly enjoyed our ceremony and appreciate them for making our day so special!!Samantha & Zack
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
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
Young Hip & Married was a DREAM to work with! We are beyond happy that we booked them for our Vancouver elopement wedding. As a company, they were personal, authentic, and helpful. They prepped us well before the ceremony and answered any questions we had. We felt heard, seen, and valued through the whole process (which was hardly a process at all – it was easy!).
On top of that, our officiant – Lani Brunn – was absolute magic. She made everything so “us” — very meaningful and personal. Nothing was canned, boring, or cookie-cutter. We appreciated her kindness and humour, and the warmth she showed not just us, but everyone there. Out of the 10 people who were in attendance, all of them have said it was the most authentic wedding they’d ever been to. Yay!!
If we get the chance to marry each other again (or renew our vows) you can bet your butt we’ll be booking with the YHM team again. Unexpected bonus: Lani has coincidentally married 4 other couples we know, and everyone LOVES her. We now jokingly call her the official “family officiant.” Thank you so so so much Lani & everyone at YHM – you made our special day even more special.Kristy & Tyrone
We were thrilled from start to finish with this group. Every communication we had was prompt, informative and professional. We had a private ceremony at our home in our front yard under our willow tree. Peter was our officiant and he was simply the best! We connected with him from the moment we met him and his style, manner and tone was exactly what we were looking for. We can’t recommend him enough. I would have no hesitation to recommend Peter and YHM to anyone looking to get married!Laura & Jennifer
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
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
We were told it’s not always possible to get what you want from your officiant but Young Hip & Married proved that wrong and gave us and our guests the exact experience we were hoping for! Our ceremony was non-traditional and it was refreshing to know with Chris-Ann and the team any and all options were on the table for our special day (with the caveat we include those all important elements which make the event legally binding). Thanks Young Hip & Married!!Bryan & Kailey
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
We cannot say enough about Jef at Young Hip and Married. He was the PERFECT officiant, invested in our relationship, gave a strong sense of ceremony and FUN! Flying in from Los Angeles, California we were nervous because we wanted our officiant to KNOW us and we feel like in the process he truly got to know us. We love him and couldn’t imagine a more perfect friend/officiant to marry us. Thank you!Amanda
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
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
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
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
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
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
Roshan and I want to express our sincere gratitude to Shawn Miller for being our wedding officiant on Friday, September 28, 2018 at Furry Creek Golf & Country Club. Thank you for making our wedding ceremony so special and entertaining! We wanted a different wedding ceremony that people would enjoy and have fun at and it’s exactly what people felt. Everyone said that they felt engaged and part of the wedding instead of just a spectator in the stands. Everyone had fun, laughed, cried and for ONCE weren’t consumed by their cellular phones and enjoyed the moment! Thank you Shawn for making our day so special!Heather & Roshan
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 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
Choosing to work with YHM is one of the best decisions we could have ever made. Not only are Shawn Miller and Erica Miller two of the most beautiful human beings, they’re professional and know their craft. We would recommend choosing them over anyone else to celebrate and commemorate a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you both for being a part of our special day. It’s one we will never forget.Shaun & Suzy
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
We commend them for the exceptional services we received in the midst of the Covid Pandemic 2020!!Lynn & Peter
Had a beautiful and intimate ceremony with Jon Wiebe officiating on the weekend. He was pleasant to communicate with, greeted us with a hug (aw!), and didn’t mind standing in the rain. Thanks YH&M!
Thanks Young Hip & Married team for being part of our ceremony. The team was very responsive, helpful and supportive. They made everything clear, easy to understand and stress-free. Thanks Jane and Erica again for being with us on a rainy windy day. Highly recommended!Annie & Nick
Jane was an amazing and flexible officiant. She was gracious in dealing with our last minute changes and prioritized our needs the whole way through. Thank you for such a smooth experience! We would definitely recommend 🙂Annie & Paul
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
Made getting married so memorable and easy. Highly recommend!Christie & James
We had such a wonderful experience with Young Hip & Married. They were easy to deal with and super accommodating. Our officiant was Layne Kilbreath from Calgary, and he was awesome. He hiked with us to our special spot in the Kananaskis mountains and performed an intimate ceremony that was just perfect for us. He was a calming presence, and you can tell that he loves seeing people get married. I am so glad we chose to do our elopement this way, it couldn’t have been better. Thanks YH&M for making it happen!Sherry & Frederick
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
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
Shawn made everything go smoothly on our day. He calmed our nerves, helped us with our ceremony and vows. It was worth every penny to have him! We couldn’t be happier with the communication we had from day one. I highly recommend Shawn and this company.Ema-lee Beth
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
Best day ever! Young Hip and Married made everything so easy, and were very professional. Our wedding day was so much fun. Lauren and Erica were the best. I would highly recommend YH&M and the helicopter elopement to anybody wanting to elope!S & T
- 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 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
Jef Young was our Officiant. He was fantastic! We received a lot of compliments about our ceremony which could not have happened without his doing. He added some special touches that meant a lot to us. We are super grateful to him!!He did a great job at customizing a service for us that fit our personalities. Utilizing their website and securing the date were all very easy. Though I am happy to say I will never need their services again, I very much recommend them to anyone else!!! Thank you for making our experience stress-free and memorable!!!Tamara
Shawn Miller crafted an amazing ceremony for my wife and I and he was incredible to work with throughout the entire process!Travis Harrison
Our wedding day could not have been more perfect. Peter was our officiant and we are so thankful for his presence on our special day. He was calm, cheerful, and candid- making us comfortable right away.Dana & Tiana
We eloped on a mountaintop this summer, and hit the jackpot, having Beth as our officiant. We’d gone for a beer with her the week prior, and somehow it was as if we’d known her for years. She just GOT us. She encapsulated our love story, and all of the things that were important to us, so beautifully. The only downside is that every single one of our photos show us either crying or laughing! It’s been a month since that magical day. We already miss hanging out with her.Sarah & David
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
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
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
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
Shawn was fantastic in every aspect. I recommend to everyone.Stefan & Courtney
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
We were so happy with everything and all the services that Young Hip & Married provided that day. I shouldn’t use the word services, because, both the officiant and the photographer didn’t feel like people that we had hired, they felt like friends we had known for years and they were integral to our wedding day! I wish I could give them more than 5 stars, but this is all that Google provides.David
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
Best option for elopement! We decided to elope before I can start working again so we decided to hire Young Hip and Married and get their wedding plus photography package. One of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. Despite the busy popular summer wedding months, they were able to respond to my questions in a timely manner. All my questions and concerns where answered. Our officiant Jane was lovely with great tips on how to make your own vows and our photographer Erica Miller was so sweet and patient with us. If you want a hassle-free elopement with photographs to remember your wedding, I highly recommend getting the services of Young Hip and Married. They provide officiants and great photographers.Kenta & Christian
Easy and they guided us step by step. Love Chris; made our ceremony special even during covid.Christine & Jason
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
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
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
Cory Dueck, out of Young Hip and Married BC was absolutely amazing! He was so friendly and helpful through our entire process. Every one of our guests mentioned how good he was during the ceremony.David & Jeelena
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
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
We had the pleasure and honour of having Cory Dueck marry us on our big day. He was and is an amazing kind hearted soul that had every single one of our guests laughing and crying all at once. We had so many people ask us after the ceremony, how long we had known Cory for (which is exactly what we wanted people to think when we hired him). He gave it 110% and truly put a personal touch on things. This made us feel like our ceremony was more “us” and far from long and boring. Cory said from the get go that he wanted to help encourage our guests to feel a part of our ceremony and to remind them that the party and the fun start with the them at the ceremony (and it worked). From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you Cory. He was amazingly supportive and helpful and we couldn’t have gotten to that moment standing before him without all his wonderful help along the way. We highly recommend Cory to ANYONE that wants a kickass memorable ceremony. We truly felt like he became a part of our family along the way and because of that we plan on keeping in touch with him He is THAT amazing.Jacquie & Mark
We got connected with Rich through YH&M and we could not have asked for a more fun and awesome person to officiate our wedding. He had some amazing ideas for our ceremony, as we wanted to keep it really casual, but also wanted something a bit different, and he delivered exactly that, coming up with some amazing and out of the box ideas for our short ceremony. Even our wedding coordinator made a point of calling me the day after the wedding and commenting on how amazing of a job she felt Rich did, as it was her first time working with him. He also was extremely flexible and rolled with the punches when my husband and I FORGOT OUR MARRIAGE LICENCE AT THE HOTEL. Luckily, he stuck around after the ceremony while someone ran to grab it for us. Rich helped make our wedding day so amazingly special, and we would not hesitate to ask him to officiate again if we could do it all over.Jennifer & Alex
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
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 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
Our wedding was amazing, made only more amazing by Cory Dueck! He was so helpful in the days leading up to the big day, which calmed both of our nerves greatly. Cory delivered perfectly during the ceremony! He really encompassed both of our personalities and our sense of humour. I would recommend anyone to use YH&M. 10/10Hartman
Jane was our officiant from Young Hip & Married, she was incredibly patient with us and very receptive to all of our input and always responded swiftly to any questions or concerns we had. She took a very hands on approach with the ceremony’s proceedings and there was plenty of dialogue back and forth on what was to be included in the ceremony We were going for a very “feelsy” ceremony and Jane achieved that for us very well. She made the ceremony all that we hoped it would be. We would absolutely recommend Jane and Young Hip & Married to anyone looking for an officiant for their big day.Robert & Megan
Absolutely amazing! We booked Shawn for out August 2018 wedding- and are so pleased that we did! Shawn was easy to work with, gave great advice and was a complete pro the day of. We wanted a lighthearted ceremony and we wanted people to enjoy themselves. I work in the wedding industry and have seen many a boring ceremony that seemed like the officiant was using a generic template. Shawn made a personalized wedding just for us, and gave great tips for writing our own vows. Great communication over the TWO YEARS that we waited from booking until our wedding (haha!). Both the day of, and in the following weeks, we have had so many guests raving about what an awesome ceremony it was and how great the officiant was (and what rad shoes he wore!). I strongly believe the ceremony can set the tone for the entire wedding day, and Shawn did exactly this for us- we had an amazing wedding that was so much fun (the best in my mind- but I may be a bit biased!).Gabrielle & Joel
Choosing Shawn to officiate our wedding was the best choice we made. He makes the ceremony so personal; it feels like he knew us forever. We had so many compliments on what a great job he did!Eric & Michelle
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
- Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding!! You have such a nurturing, warm, and kind energy. The ceremony was wonderful! We are so happy to be married!! Thank you for your lovely presence on our day!Janet & Mark
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
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
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
I cannot say enough good things about Young Hip & Married and the service they provide. They delivered exactly what we were dreaming of for our ceremony. It was not your cookie cutter wedding ceremony, it was unique and completely personalized. As soon as we met our officiant Randy we felt like we had known him for years. With his guidance and encouragement we were able to write and read our own vows (something neither of us thought we could do!). He took the time to get to know us as a couple and individually and that helped make our ceremony extra special. The ceremony was heartfelt, fun, and funny. Everyone at our wedding is still talking about how awesome it was and how much they loved Randy! Thank you Young Hip & Married!Samantha & Andrew
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
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
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
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
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
We got married by Jane Halton this Saturday. She made our ceremony simple and beautiful. Highly recommend!Diana Meneses
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
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
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
When planning our wedding, we really wanted the day to have a relaxed feel to it. We wanted it to be about love. Our Officiant, Kadee, made that happen for us and really set the tone for the rest our wedding. Leading up to the ceremony, she made the whole process very stress-free. She was organized, knowledgeable and always got back to us quickly when we had questions along the way. She was easy to talk to and genuine. We were both so happy with Kadee, but we were further validated when our guests went out of their way to tell us what a fantastic job she did!Gabriela & Jose
What an incredible ceremony! Bobbi truly made our ceremony unique, fun and fabulous. Would not have changed a thing!!Jennifer
- 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
We had a wonderful wedding experience with Young Hip & Married! Our wedding was exactly what we wanted; our officiant, Lani, was incredible, and made the day so easy and stress-free. The ceremony was beautiful, and so very much us! It was just like Disney…we loved it!Sarah & Tom
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 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
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
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
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
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
We were a little unsure of how the process would work when we signed up, but we were impressed with the level of service and care. All e-mails were answered promptly regarding any questions we had and when we found our officiant the process became even better. We chose Rhona based on her profile and after meeting via Zoom we could feel her warmth and that she genuinely wanted us to have the wedding ceremony of OUR dreams. She was very easy to work with, understanding and delivered a phenomenal ceremony. It felt like we knew her for years, our family and friends were extremely impressed by her words. I would recommend this website for anyone who is looking to get married. It’s very straightforward and easy to use.
Having our wedding officiated by Rhona was the greatest! Rhona made the process so simple and every piece reflected who we are as a couple. During the ceremony I felt anchored by Rhona and my family was happily surprised that we found someone with such sweet energy. Thank you, thank you, thank you!Matthew & Jazmine
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
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
Jonathan was amazing! We have had so many compliments about him! So easy going, and great to deal with leading up to and on the day of. Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone!Aliya & Mathew
- Wow what a whirlwind day! Thank you so much for your generosity in being our officiant. You were the perfect person to marry us and we are ever so thankful to have you play such a big part in our union! Thank you so much!!!!!!We really cannot thank you enough!Mark & Anita
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
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
Our officiant was Jane! To keep it short & sweet, I think it was a little daunting to have to explain our relationship to someone, anyone. We didn’t have a theme, we don’t realllyy have any extreme activities we do together. We’re the Netflix and chill, get coffee, be with our family & friends couple and Jane didn’t bat an eye. She got it, she wrote it, we made little to zero corrections and she killed it at the ceremony. Most importantly she kept the attention of our guests, and made sure they knew how much we loved them too. Also, she’s great at keeping secrets (we had a surprise wedding). And I realized it must have been interesting to write something where we didn’t want her to talk about marriage itself (lots of divorces there that night) and just us. So thank you Jane, it was everything we could have Asked for. Also, they made a welcome video when you inquire and it’s the loveliest touch.Kerstyn & Kody
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 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
Thank you YH&M for sending us Jane.
She was a perfect match for the vibe of our wedding. We had no idea what we were doing and Jane made the process seamless and easy. Our guests are still talking about how special and personal the ceremony was and they thought Jane was a perfect match for the day. We will highly recommend Jane and YH&M to anyone and everyone.Karen & Paul
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
It was truly the most incredible and best experience ever having YH&M help us create our elopement ceremony in Toronto! Truly a brilliant company, exceptional service, and special thanks to our rockstar officiant, Jonathan Manafo!!! The best on every level! THANK YOU!!!!Christopher Emerson
We couldn’t have asked for anyone better to officiate our wedding! Kristen has an amazing energy that shone through from her first introductory email right to the ceremony and beyond. Never a hesitation when I emailed with questions. We FaceTimed with her shortly before the ceremony to go over the details and we just loved her! She spoke with such joy about us during our ceremony. My mother wanted a blessing for our union and Kristen wrote an absolutely beautiful one for us! These guys know what they’re doing and make sure that you get exactly what you want! Our day was perfect and a big part of it was because of Kristen!!Alicia & Keith
Jane Halton recently officiated our wedding. She was perfect to work with. We had a vision in mind for our ceremony and learned throughout the process with her that what we actually wanted, wasn’t what we thought we wanted when we had started the process. Our ceremony turned out perfectly, and that was in large part as a result of her guidance, patience and flexibility with us.Elyse
My wife and I decided to go with Young Hip and Married for our elopement and we couldn’t be happier. They were really responsive, and helped us through all the steps in the process. Shawn is an amazing officiant and Erica’s’ photos are breathtaking. I really recommend them if you want a special and unique ceremony.Daniel & Mayra
The entire Young Hip and Married team were amazing throughout the entire process! We had an elopement wedding with last minute changes right up until the very last minute which they were very accommodating to. Our Officiant Jane was amazing. She was so kind and professional and her wedding speech was so inspirational for a couple embarking on the life long union of marriage. Although it was a very short elopement wedding, she took her time and we never felt rushed even though both of our vows ran a little longer than anticipated. She was very organized with our paper work and continued to communicate with us after the wedding regarding the timeline of when we would be receiving our marriage certificate. Erica, our photographer, was also amazing from start to finish. She is so talented on capturing every special moment throughout a wedding ceremony. Although we had a short amount of time with her, we also never felt rushed. She was so friendly and it felt like we were able to get all the photos in we wanted as well as her input on some more photos she thought would look beautiful also. She is so creative in her work and I am sure the photos will turn out beautifully! I hope to use her talent again in the future. We would highly recommend this amazing team to any couple getting married, from smaller elopement style weddings to larger party weddings as well! A Big Thank you to the entire team for making our day more special than we could have ever imagined! 🙂Chelsea & Marcus
Thank you so much Kristen! It was certainly a magical and beautiful day! Couldn’t have pictured it any other way now. We are so happy and excited for what is next. Thank you so much for helping us commit to each other!Brittany & Nick
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
Shawn from Young Hip & Married managed to pull off a ceremony that all our parents (and us!) truly loved and we weren’t really sure if that would even be remotely possible! My husband and I grew up with different cultures and traditions and Shawn helped us find the perfect balance creating a custom ceremony that was so special and meaningful for us and our families. We got so many compliments from our guests on the ceremony, they loved being involved and a few people even asked if Shawn was a friend of ours! It was exactly what we wanted! We highly recommend Shawn if you’re looking for an excellent officiant. The whole process was easy and professional.Ashley & Simon
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
Our Helicopter Elopement could not have been more perfect!! The sun was shining, it was warm and the snow was deep! Young Hip & Married took all the stress out of our “big day.” They were on their A Game from the beginning and I couldn’t have asked for anything more from them. Erika was absolutely delightful and her calm demeanor calmed me down… not so much my new husband, but oh well!Chelsea Domich
We’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
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
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
Probably the best officiants around. Revolutionizing the officiant experience and making it personal, emotional, fun, dynamic and an experience everyone can enjoy.Ivonne & Brent
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
Jonathan! Thank you so very much for every contribution to our incredible day. It was a dream and everything we wanted. Truly was so perfect. The location, the timing, the ceremony, the whole morning, and day. Loved it.Christopher & Fatine
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
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
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
I highly recommend Young Hip & Married for anyone who is wanting an amazing ceremony they will never forget. We had Peter La Grand officiate our wedding and we couldn’t have asked for anything better. We were wanting to have a ceremony that was personalized and tailored to who we are as individuals and as a couple with nothing too traditional. Peter did just that. Our ceremony was filled with heartfelt moments, stories and humour with not one dull moment. What Peter will do is help you create the perfect ceremony for your perfect day every step of the way.Patrick & Emma
My wife and I had a great experience with Young Hip and Married for our wedding in September. We had the pleasure to work with Shawn to prepare for our day. Shawn’s process is very collaborative, with online meetings, document sharing the ceremony text, and he helped us create our vows. On the day of, Shawn made our day very special. He was very fun for our guests, and he has a clear and strong voice that all our guests could hear. Shawn helped guide my wife and I through the ceremony, helped keep us relaxed and made us look good. Shawn also looked Young and Hip 🙂 Thank you Shawn and I highly recommend Young Hip and Married to officiate your ceremony.Paolo & Stephanie
Erika did a wonderful job as our officiant. She got to know us and put together a wonderful speech on our special day. Very professional, reliable, and a pleasure to work with. We strongly recommend this company.Brianne & Bryan
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
My partner and I were married in a North Vancouver forest by Shawn and Erica was our photographer. We were looking for a very personal, private and intimate ceremony and that is exactly what we got. Shawn lead us through a beautiful ceremony and gave us some guidance before the ceremony that really helped my husband and I lock into each other and reason we were there together. Shawn has a way of guiding the ceremony, while stepping back enough for us to feel like we were there alone. This made it easy to be our authentic selves in that moment, there was no show. This naturally led to a flood of emotion for both of us, as we felt the weight of our love, the significance of our bond, and the deep appreciation and gratitude that we have for each other.
Erica did a wonderful job of capturing the moment with beautiful and candid photographs of the ceremony and the hour following. The pictures are great!
In addition to the wedding day, they were both very helpful prior to the wedding, helping when we asked for guidance (e.g., alternative ceremony locations for rainy day and where/how to get our marriage license). They always answered the phone when I called with a question. We really feel that they were there for us before and during the wedding.
If you are considering a wedding officiant and/photographer we highly recommend Shawn and Erica. I cannot imagine a better couple to have there supporting a bride and groom on your wedding day. We are so grateful that Shawn and Erica were a part of this significant and special day.Kristin Wilson
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 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
YH&M made everything easy and stress free! The officiant and photographer were both amazing. No complaints whatsoever!Laura & Christopher
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
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
- Brian did an absolutely amazing job before and after with sitting us down and talking and made the ceremony relaxing and very easy going!!!Lauren & Mathew Woodley
Erika, you were absolutely amazing and exceeded all expectations. You gave us the exact ceremony that we wanted, and we don’t think it could have been any better. From the start of the ceremony to the very end, it was perfect. You wrote the most beautiful ceremony that included our guests, gave thanks to our parents and was all about Jonathan and myself. So many people have come to us and said the ceremony was amazing, that you were amazing, and that it was such a heartfelt, and meaningful ceremony. I am pretty sure you had most, if not all, of our guests in tears.
I think all that is left to say is Thank You, Thank You and Thank You. Thank you to you for everything, I don’t think we will ever be able to say how thankful we are and Thank you to Young, Hip & Married for connecting us with you. We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant, or a better ceremony.Kendrianne & Jonathan
We were engaged in early April and between the pandemic and having all of our family on the other side of the country, we were unsure how we would plan our wedding. After scrolling through different wedding officiant services, something about YHMs page caught our eye. We had no idea where or when, but we sent off an email. From the very first response we could tell we chose correctly. They were so helpful and quick to respond, they spent time helping us decide where, and when we gave them our date, they immediately said they could accommodate us. Erika our officiant was so helpful with handling most of the wedding license process and guided us with the rest.
On our special day, our officiant Erika greeted us like old friends and we instantly felt comfortable. She was the perfect addition to our day and we will remember her fondly always! Our photographer, Erica, was also out of this world. She was there for the entire process from the first email. Showing us photos of locations and helping us decide on the perfect time. We got married standing next to the ocean at sunset and it was PERFECT. Erica even watched the weather and the tides leading up to our day to ensure the perfect day. Her genuine sincerity and the level of care that she puts into her clients and her work, is unmatched. We cannot imagine our day with anyone else. We are both pretty shy and Erica was able to direct us, without really telling us to pose, by just getting us to be ourselves and laugh; she was incredible. The photos are absolutely stunning; she captured every moment and every emotion in that moment. Our photos will forever make us laugh, cry and smile at all the detail and emotion she captured.
Everything with YHM was so seamless and stress-free, everything was planned so well and the communication was flawless. We wouldn’t change a thing about our day and we would recommend YHM to anyone who’s looking for something different, unique or personally tailored to what you had in mind – this group of people can make it happen. Thank you again, YHM!Shelby & Curt
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.
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 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
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
Jane did an amazing job at our wedding! Even our friends who interacted with her found her very friendly.Althea & Seth
We met this company at a wedding show. From first contact all the way to our big day, we have nothing but gratitude and praise to express. Professional, responsive, great value for money. Our thanks go particularly to Rebecca for her support and also Marilyn who was our officiant. She was high energy, genuine, fun, engaging, everything we had hoped for. Our guests absolutely loved all her personal touches and her humour! Merci mille fois for making our special event a night to cherish and remember.Hugo & Remi
YH&M: The best in the industry!
Shawn was incredible to work with and we cannot recommend him and Young Hip & Married enough! Shawn was the very first vendor we booked (about a year and a half in advance) before a dress, flowers, coordinator, or anything else. I had seen him in action at another wedding and knew he was the perfect person to marry us. Right from our initial meeting, Shawn made us so at ease and we felt like old friends just catching up over donuts at Cartems. He took real time to get to know us and ask meaningful questions. The process leading up to the wedding was fun and easy.
Shawn walked us through our rehearsal and calmed our nerves. On the day of the wedding, the ceremony he delivered for us was personalized, eloquent, meaningful, romantic, lighthearted, and fun all at once. It perfectly captured the essence of “us” in a way that even we couldn’t have put into words.
Our guests were also blown away! We had more than a few people ask us how long we had known each other, thinking that we were lifelong friends since he captured us and our story so well. My personal favourite comment from a guest was “his voice spoke to my soul.” Shawn indeed has a unique brand of gravitas mixed with humour, authenticity, and a genuine love for LOVE!
Shawn, we cannot thank you enough for the beauty and laughs you brought to our day. THANK YOU!Paige & Jamie
Couldn’t have chosen a cooler, more professional, and awesome company than this. Was lucky enough to hire Shawn for our wedding , and he did nothing short of an amazing job. I would reccomend Young Hip & Married to absolutely anyone getting married.Justin & Kayla
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
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
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
WOW. Shawn made getting hitched SUCH an easy and wonderful experience. Reminding us to be present in the moment and taking a few seconds during the ceremony often for us to stop and absorb the emotions! It was such an awesome experience. Shawn was such a wonderful energy to have with us when it was such a small and intimate thing (only 4 people) and we are so glad he was one of them. Thank you to YH&M and Shawn.Miranda
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
My husband and I met Jane at Young Hip & Married initially through our good friends. Jane was their officiant, and involved the entire wedding party from the get go. She thoughtfully reached out to each of us so that she could get to know her bride and groom better, and curate a perfect wedding ceremony for them. We were very impressed with Jane, and decided to reach out to her shortly after the wedding to discuss officiating ours! Through our discussions, we decided to try a marriage coaching session with Jane. After one session we saw the benefits, and signed up for four more. Jane covered some serious topics with us, many of which we wouldn’t have discussed in great detail otherwise. She created a comfortable atmosphere for both of us, and an environment where we could talk about anything. Our relationship with Jane has been incredibly special. As she got to know us better, she was able to craft the perfect ceremony that really reflected who we are. Our wedding day was perfect, and Jane played a huge part in that. I think a lot of people overlook the marriage coaching aspect of Young Hip & Married, but it equipped us with some essential skills we will be using for many years to come. Thank you, Jane! You have our highest recommendations!Mackenzie & Mike
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
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
Loved that we got to customize our ceremony to fit what we wanted (even though we didn’t really know what we wanted, we got help with that too). All of our guests commented on how much they loved our ceremony and officiant and that they thought it was one of the most personal, touching and fitted to the couple that they had been to. We loved it!Andrea
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
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
- Lani, we just wanted to send you a note to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being a part of our absolutely perfect day. Our ceremony would not have been what it was without your direction and influence, and we are so so SO happy with how it all came together. We knew when we met you that your attitude and all-around joyful personality would make you the perfect person to marry us, and we were so right.Our wedding party has been gushing about you since the rehearsal, and SO many people have told us it was the most beautiful and funny ceremony they’ve ever witnessed. THANK YOU SO MUCH! You helped make our wedding everything we could have dreamed and more.Endless thank-yous, especially for doing this on your birthday.Michelle & Jackson
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!
Doug and I would like to thank you guys SO much for making our day so special. Big shout out to Cory for helping us out and nailing the speech. Our guests were so impressed with how personal you made the ceremony. It really did make our day that much more personal and fun! If we could have rated you 10 stars we would haha We will also be recommending you guys to our friends who are looking to get hitched in the coming years.Meghan & Doug
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
Rhona from Young Hip & Married put together an amazing ceremony for us. She took the time to get to know us and always kept in touch with us. Our families thought she did an amazing job with the ceremony. I felt like I knew Rhona very well before even meeting her face to face. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.Jenn & Scott
My wife and I had a fantastic helicopter wedding. We highly recommended!Fei & Jie
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
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
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 officaint and Erica was our photographer. They were so fun to work with; we can’t recommend them enough.Meredith & Sarah
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
Throughout the process of arranging our elopement style wedding Lani was incredibly helpful, responsive and accommodating. We didn’t meet her in person until the wedding day, but it was like we had known her for a long time. She was incredibly approachable, friendly and easygoing—exactly what we needed. We had our wedding in a public place where we had to navigate some crowds, aim for good weather, and walk some trails to get to the ceremony location. I was really worried about having an officiant that would be difficult to work with in this type of setting. Lani was the exact opposite. She was excited with how we were doing our ceremony and was helping organize the crowds and setting. In the ceremony itself, she nailed it! I have, and will continue to, recommend Lani to any of my friends.Mark & Elle
Young Hip & Married were amazing to work with! Shawn took our ceremony to the next level and our guests were blown away with how funny and down to earth our ceremony was. We loved having a personalized ceremony that told our story and he did a great job of capturing our personalities. Thank you!!J
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
I discovered Young Hip and Married when I was searching for places and ways to elope! Ironically, the day we decided to get married in Vancouver (the day before we were leaving on an Alaskan cruise), Tara had emailed me to see if I had any questions! It was fate! Our fairytale started right then!! Erika was an amazing officiant, walking us through the whole process!! She did an awesome job, finding a great spot in Stanley Park to marry us!! Victoria was our photographer and she, too, made us feel so comfortable and special!!! Thanks for your professionalism and detail!! We could not have been happier with our “Young, Hip, and Crazy” elopement (7 hours after flying in from Chicago)!!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!Barb & Ross
We were very happy with the job Lani did at our ceremony and we highly recommend her. We wanted a mix of traditional and non-traditional, but we didn’t really know what else we wanted and Lani had lots of suggestions and helped us make it happen. Because we live out of town, we didn’t meet Lani in person until our rehearsal but right away it was obvious she knew what she was doing. She was the right mix of fun and professional. And after talking with our family and friends, all our guest seemed to agree.Caley + Brien
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
When we decided to elope, our expectations (when it came to finding an officiant and photographer) did not include anything close to the level of expertise we experienced with Shawn and Erica. It’s impossible to describe, except to say that they put such beautiful human touches on so many moments. We are extremely grateful to have been joined by Shawn and Erica on this day!Grover & Helen
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
- 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
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
- 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
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
Jane Halton officiated our wedding this past weekend and we could not have asked for a better experience! Our guests had nothing but compliments after the ceremony and loved the unique personality and casual nature of the event. Having the chance to meet with her in advance of the ceremony helped us feel comfortable that she would create a customized ceremony that fit our personalities and style. She also took care of our rehearsal, ensuring our entire wedding party was up to speed on the process and gave us a chance to review everything before the day. We’d highly recommend Jane and Young, Hip & Married to anyone looking for an excellent, highly personal wedding experience.Nick Sartore
We had Rich as our officiant and I absolutely love how smooth our ceremony went. He is very flexible. The YH&M team are very accommodating with all of my inquiries from beginning to end. Rich also gave us a what I would say a quick lesson on the do’s in a ceremony and also gave us freedom to play around with how we want things to go down. From wedding vows to my desire to walk into an aisle even if it’s just an elopement. I would love to have them again in my renewal of vows!Frances & Jason
So glad we chose them! We went with the helicopter elopement package and it was everything we had hoped. The photographer, officiant and staff that we dealt with were all professional, helpful and genuinely enthusiastic. Our day was everything we wanted.M & K
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
Such a great experience using YHM for my wedding. Super professional and lovely people – thank you!!Michelle & Craig
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
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
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
Young Hip & Married is by far the best company to work with when it comes to officiating your wedding. Shawn was absolutely fantastic from start to finish! Extremely knowledgeable, professional and beautifully spoken. Our friends and family are still raving about our ceremony and how creative and loving Shawn was on our wedding day. Love love love the team at YH&M!Sarah & Damon
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
We just wanted to say thank you so much, Erika! We really appreciated you being there and we couldn’t have asked for a better officiant! Thanks for all of your work and also your flexibility with COVID19 and the sudden change in venue.Victoria & Sam
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
Bobbi was absolutely incredible, making a real effort (and succeeding) in connecting with us. She made our special day the best it could be.Graham
When I was looking for an officiant for our intimate Deep Cove ceremony, I came across Shawn Miller and the group at Young, Hip and Married. I booked over a year in advance and any time I called or had questions they were responsive, and in the week before the wedding Shawn was available to us via text or email or phone – even when I had a freak out about our marriage license the night before the wedding at 10pm!! Our attendees (5 parents) all said that it was perfect, that it was the best ceremony they had attended in a long time, and that it led them to reflect on the love in their own lives. We would do it again in a heartbeat.Matt & Amalia
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
Jane was absolutely amazing officiating my wedding. She’s so easy going, and personalized our ceremony brilliantly to suit the exact mood and style we wanted. Worth every penny. Thanks again Jane!Emily & Tyler
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
Shawn officiated our wedding. We couldn’t be happier with our experience. Shawn was very professional throughout the process and took the time to get to know us so that he could tailor our ceremony to suit our personalities. The ceremony was perfect and it felt “very us.” We had numerous people come to us after the wedding and ask if Shawn was a friend of ours because the ceremony felt that personal. I would highly recommend using this company for your wedding.Stacy Shields
We loved Jane from Young Hip & Married! Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted and Jane did such a wonderful job. Highly recommend!Sydney & Taylor
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
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
Our officiant was Jane and she was absolutely wonderful! My husband and I were doing the small elopement package and she was able to walk us through what was going to happen before we started which really calmed down my nerves. We also had great service from Tara; she helped us set up the time with Jane and was supper helpful throughout the entire process. We planned the wedding in a week so everything was at the last minute and this company was kind and willing to find us an officiant so we could make our special day possible. Thank you so much!! Great people and great company!!Lucy Reid
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
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
- 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
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
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
“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
Planning a wedding is stressful but during a pandemic is on a whole new level of stress. Working with Shawn from Young, Hip & Married made the ceremony easy and relaxing. Shawn was professional and helped keep my wife and I at ease. As a result, our socially distanced and covid friendly ceremony was perfect. My wife and I will be recommending YH&M to everyone.Marc & Eojin
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
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
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
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
The staff at Young Hip & Married were a pleasure to deal with. They were very responsive and helpful in every way they could be. We coordinated with both Shawn Miller & Tara Volney.
Our officiant, Anthony, took the time to meet with us and have a casual conversation to learn who we were and walk us through what to expect with our upcoming ceremony.
Overall, I would recommend the entire team!!Jeffery
- 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
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 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
From the very first day we met Shawn, we knew our ceremony was going to be prefect! He listened and understood what we wanted and made it so personal. He was patient with us on editing the draft and was super helpful at explaining why he did certain things, but changed it if we wanted to. Yes, they are more expensive than a government marriage commissioner, but it is well worth it. All my guests said they LOVED the ceremony (and so did we)!!!!Jennifer & Joshua
Our officiant was Shawn Miller and he did a great job of preparing and ensuring that our wedding ceremony went perfectly! He was both professional and spontaneous throughout the day. A number of our guests remarked afterwards that they had enjoyed his fun and engaging manner. We were lucky to have Shawn with us and wholeheartedly recommend him.Mindy & Jim
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
I couldn’t have asked for a better day! The Young Hip and Married team took care of everything for our small heli-elopement. It was the no stress wedding we were dreaming of. Shawn did a great job officiating and made us both feel comfortable and we were touched by his words. Erica’s photos turned out so beautiful. We couldn’t have asked for anything more !Megan & Kyle
We eloped as we wanted a small and intimate wedding with no stress. The best decision we made was to have Young Hip & Married involved in planning our day. Our officiant was Jane and she was fantastic. Professional, friendly and personable – making our day even more special. Although we did not meet Jane prior to the wedding, she was available via email, text and phone. She helped us with our ceremony sequence and wedding vows. The ceremony was exactly what we imagined. We also went with photography through YH&M and had Erica. We loved Erica. Great energy and very personable. We can’t wait to see the photos! If you are considering a small wedding then don’t look anywhere else – go with YH&M!Nelia
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
The moment I met Shawn I knew I wanted him to officiant my wedding. I was looking at venues and he was handing out business cards. After only speaking to him for 30 seconds, I loved his charisma. My now husband and I met with him shortly afterwards, and my husband liked him too. We decided to go with Young, Hip & Married because we wanted something special, and we wanted our wedding to leave a positive impression in our guests’ memories. We’ve witnessed more than enough wedding ceremonies that were impersonal and boring because the officiant didn’t take the time to get to know the couple like Shawn and his team do. I really liked being able to review, edit, and customize our ceremony as many times as we wanted to before the big day. We even made some last-minute changes only days before, and this wasn’t a problem. Shawn had many great ideas, and some ideas that we didn’t like as much, but he customized our ceremony until we were 100% happy with it. We wrote a few of the details ourselves, including our own vows, and Shawn incorporated everything. He even printed out copies of our vows and brought them to the ceremony for us so we didn’t have to worry about that with everything else going on. After the ceremony, some guests asked how Shawn knows us. Young, Hip & Married does such a great job, your guests will assume the officiant is a long-time friend of yours! I also love that he attended and directed our rehearsal. It took some of the stress away from the big day having someone else tell everyone where they needed to be and what the needed to do that day. I highly recommend Young, Hip & Married to officiant anyone’s wedding! You won’t be disappointed!David & Tamara
My husband and I couldn’t say greater things about working with Young Hip and Married for our big day. They were so great and easy to work with and made the whole experience from beginning to finish enjoyable. We were looking for a fun way to elope and from the second we met Shawn and Erica, they did not let us down. They made the experience light and fun and were so easy going. It was all about us and the experience we were after. We took a helicopter tour to the top of a mountain which had incredible views. The ceremony with Shawn was super fun and the photography from Erica took our breathes away. We couldn’t recommend this company more and now we have an amazing memory to look back on with incredible pictures we hold near and dear to our hearts. If you are getting married, they are the best and they are great to work with.Lisanne & Brett
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
Kadee was our wedding officiant, and in hindsight, I can’t see us making any changes at all. Before the ceremony, she always kept in touch and asked various questions to get to know us better. During the ceremony, she was prompt and professional. Additionally, her speech was heart felt, personal, and funny. This is exactly what we wished for. After the ceremony, Kadee from Young Hip & Married followed up with us. I am so happy we went this route rather than paying less for the standard city officiant. She made our day memorable and we are so pleased.Kelsey & Jonathon
Thank you SO much for your attention to detail and sense of humour, you got us so well. It was really fun having you part of it and literally wouldn’t change a thing! You adapted your script to suit us and I loved it, you made us laugh too, love that even more!Cassandra & Trevor
We chose Young Hip & Married to perform our ceremony because a friend of ours had Shawn and they loved every moment working with him. We decided to meet with Kristen and from the moment we met with her we knew we wanted her to do our ceremony! She was fantastic throughout the entire planning process and always offered her help. She made our ceremony very special and related it to us and our story and there’s nothing we would’ve changed!Amy & Troy
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
Jane Halton was our officiant for our wedding and she was fantastic! She was very much on-top of working with us to create the timeline. We were quite slow to respond to emails at times and she was very patient. Our ceremony went off perfectly as she had laid it out! The entire process was so smooth with Young Hip and Married and we can’t thank Jane enough!!Gerard & Letty
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)
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
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
Our officiant, Erika Enns, and Tara were extremely helpful, kind and dedicated. Can’t recommend them enough!Katrina Xavier
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
Lauren was so wonderful officiating our wedding. Her words during our ceremony were fantastic, we were so lucky to have had her part of our wedding!Eli & Anna-Maria
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
Obviously an officiant is an essential part of any wedding day but YH&M and Curt ESPECIALLY made it all the more special. The process was easy and collaborative and we would easily recommend them to anyone thinking about getting married.Ana & Chris
Everything was very lovely, Shawn and Erica were also very friendly. I had a great time. I was worried while planning this wedding about the covid restrictions and about what could happen but everything was soo smooth! Would recommend!Crystal & Joel-Peter
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
Young Hip & Married was amazing from the start to finish. We went with the elopement/photography package and it was perfect. We eloped in West Vancouver at Whytecliff Park; had Shawn & Erica Miller as our officiant/photographer. They are both extremely professional, friendly & HIP! They made our day very special, laid back, but most of all- they customized it to exactly what we wanted for our special day. Wouldn’t change one thing about our wedding day & highly recommend this company!!!Brooke & Curtis
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
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
We chose Young Hip & Married based on reviews and we are so happy that we did! From the beginning, they were so amazing to deal with. Erika was our officiant and she exceeded our expectations in every way possible. She gave us the exact ceremony we wanted which included our guests, giving thanks to our parents and was all about us. Erika was in constant contact with us from the very beginning. She was friendly, prompt with her responses and helped us through the entire process. We have had so many people come to us saying they have never seen a ceremony like ours and that Erika was amazing. Thank you so much Young Hip & Married, and an even bigger thanks to Erika for giving us the best ceremony we could have asked for!!Kendrianne
We put off getting married for 5 years because nothing seemed right until we found Young Hip and Married. We had family flying in and we were working on such a tight schedule; I figured booking any officiant was going to be a long shot. The awesome team made everything so easy, painless and fun. Our officiant, Peter, was so prepared and clearly full of passion. He was able to make our tiny elopement very intimate and personal. 10/10 would recommend!Lauren & Nathaniel
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
I just wanted to personally say how wonderful Jodi was. We renewed our vows with her in a creek in Canmore Alberta on Sept 08, 2018. She was amazing!!!
For a unique wedding- this is the perfect choice. There are a lot of older Justices of the Peace that are just not speaking to our generation, so we called Young Hip & Married. We wanted someone who would give us a nice ceremony but fun enough to marry us in a creek in Canmore, Alberta. Thank you Jodi!Carie & Brad
Jane, Clint, and Rebecca were the most helpful and accommodating during the planning of our COVID wedding. One of our family members had some last minute health issues and the three of them were so kind and eager to make things work for us – even if it meant rescheduling twice! To top it off, we got married on the windiest day ever, but Jane and Clint were such troopers through it all. Our families both commented on how much they loved Jane’s attitude and words during the ceremony. We were absolutely blown away (pun intended) by the photos we received from Clint! My hair was so wind blown and we were both cold, so we didn’t have high hopes that the photos would turn out – but we were so wrong! Clint used the surroundings to provide us with a range of photos that felt fresh and intimate. He made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and was eager to take photos wherever we wanted. All in all – we definitely recommend Young Hip & Married!Maddy & Jonathan
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
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
- 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
If you’re looking for a wonderful officiant, I promise you, you will be so happy working with Young Hip & Married! They are the best in the business! We were fortunate enough to have Beth officiate our wedding. A true professional!! She was was incredibly top-notch, kind, funny and wonderfully easy to talk to. Beth got in touch with us via Zoom and spoke to us about how we wanted to tailor our wedding. She was extremely flexible and generous with our needs while masterfully creating the perfect script for the ceremony itself. She kept us informed every step of the way, and if we needed to make any changes, she was always supportive and constructive with our requests.
Before we began writing vows, I felt like an amateur. However, Beth provided us a PDF of vow writing tips and tricks for my spouse and I to study. Following her instructions, I carefully spent a couple of days drafting and writing my vows until they were just right. On the day of the ceremony, we recited them as planned and even 4 weeks after the wedding we are STILL receiving compliments for our vows. This was all thanks to Beth!!
Before the wedding began, she came to find me before the ceremony and assured us that everything was going smoothly. It gave me so much peace of mind. She helped give the wedding party very easy-to-follow instructions on where to stand and what to do. This took immense pressure off of us, since we chose not to go with a rehearsal and went with a very simple ceremony instead. You will not be disappointed with YH&M. Beth went above and beyond and I truly believe that her expertise is proof that YH&M genuinely cares about their clientele.A & C
Brian from YH&M married us on October 6th at Birds Eye Cove Farm on Vancouver Island and it was AMAZING!! We loved working with him; he has a wonderful personality and he did a great job on our wedding ceremony. At first we weren’t sure if it was worth it and kept contemplating going with a JOP, but everyone on the day of and since our wedding has said that the ceremony was one of the best parts. It was SO worth it!!! Thank you so much for starting our wedding day off on such an enjoyable note.Emma & Gregory
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
Great service! We got the awesome elopement package and enjoyed every second of it. The pictures and ceremony were great!Nikita & Tyler
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
- Jane, thanks so much for all the work you did for us. Our guests really enjoyed the ceremony and the customized touches you added. More importantly though, you made Kathleen and I feel at ease on what was arguably the biggest day of our lives. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.Wes & Kathleen
Jane Halton was very professional and laid back. She was extremely helpful and made our wedding an excellent one. Couldn’t be any happier!! Thank you, Jane.Rhys Smith
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
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
A big thanks to Young Hip & Married and especially to Beth for doing such an amazing job on sharing our story with everyone at our wedding ceremony. Her warmth and enthusiasm brought every aspect of our story to life with a touch of humor and emotion. We highly recommend Young Hip & Married to anyone looking for a memorable experience. Thanks again from Nicky & Chris.Nicky & Christopher
- 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
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
- 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
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
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 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
Young Hip & Married is so awesome. Rich was adorable, kind, accepting, flexible, accommodating, charming. We were trying to plan a wedding from another province and communicated with him mostly through email and Skype. We gave him a jumbled up, poorly articulated description of what we thought we wanted, and he somehow transformed that into a ceremony that was so us. Our families come from very different faiths and cultural backgrounds, and Rich somehow found a way to make a seamless ceremony that left everyone satisfied and impressed.Kerrie & Raza
An unforgettable day with Young Hip & Married. Right from the get go, the company, Shawn and Erica were responsive to all our questions and concerns. A blip on our part resulted in us wanting to change the date of the elopement, which YH&M accommodated no questions asked. Incredible service. The helicopter ride was stunning, the ceremony itself was everything we could have asked for and Shawn really was a dream to listen to. He made us feel relaxed and his words were beautiful. Erica, our photographer, was such a babe. She made us feel comfortable and the photos are amazing – we genuinely look like we are having an absolute blast! It was totally worth flying from the UK to be married in such a way, with such an awesome company. I can’t recommend them enough!Team Katie
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
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
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
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
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
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
Young Hip and Married was so easy to work with as we planned our elopement only a month and a half out from the event! The staff were all friendly and easy to communicate with. Our officiant Erika wrote a BEAUTIFUL ceremony for us that included our sons, and at the last minute when she was unable to make it due to a family emergency, Jane stepped in immediately and saved the day! She read Erika’s ceremony and helped it all feel incredibly sweet and personal (yes we all cried). Thanks to all of you for making our day that much more special!Rhiannon Jones
We 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 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
Thank you so much for being a part of our special day. You truly made our ceremony special and exceeded all expectations! We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant to share this moment with.Abigail & Jan Michael
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
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
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
Working with Young Hip & Married, specifically our officiant Shawn Miller, was a dream come true! Everything went off exactly as we had hoped and many of our wedding guests commented on how much they loved our unique, thoughtful, personalized wedding ceremony!Briana
A moment of huge appreciation and joy for the people at Young Hip & Married that were so accommodating, kind, and well spoken for our COVID-19 ceremony. Our friends and family who watched the video were all like “Wow the guy who married you guys was such a great speaker!” or some variation, and honestly, I just really enjoyed working with them! I’m not planning on getting married again, so I can’t say that I would use them again for, you know, another marriage ceremony. But we are planning on doing a vow renewal or something once COVID is under wraps and we can actually, you know, hug our friends and family without fear of giving them (or receiving) a virus; and for that we are definitely planning on going back to Young Hip & Married to see if that’d be cool!Nicholas & Kim
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
- 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
We worked with Jane of Young Hip & Married, and she was just tremendous! We set up an initial consultation with her in which she went over the services she offered. Our entire meeting went really smoothly, and Jane was so professional and easy to talk to. We knew she was exactly the type of person we wanted to take charge of our ceremony. After our initial meeting, we filled out some questionnaires about our relationship. This questionnaire was to help Jane draft up her script for the ceremony portion. We had unlimited access to altering the script, and Jane always had great suggestions with regards to vows, blessings, etc. We really appreciated this, as we had no idea what we were doing. Jane was always professional, very responsive, and easy to communicate with. She also came to our dress rehearsal and went over the entire ceremony portion in detail with everyone in attendance, which was greatly appreciated. On our wedding day, Jane’s speech was so beautiful and felt so genuine. The ceremony flowed so effortlessly, and Jane spoke of us as if we were old friends. We are forever grateful for all the time and effort she put into writing everything up. We would highly recommend going with Young Hip & Married if you want a stress free experience! Jane even mailed off our marriage licence.
P.S. Please consider asking all your guests to put their phones away for their ceremony! This was one of Jane’s suggestions, and we are SO glad we listened. Looking out at the sea of familiar faces (not phones!) at our ceremony was one of my favourite parts of our ceremony.Joyce & Joe
Jodi met with us several months before the wedding. Over a couple cups of coffee at Starbucks, we shared my fiancé and my story. She listened to our stories of how we met and what we enjoy most about being together. A few weeks later, she had vows written that expressed exactly how we felt about each other. Jodi included a mix of humour, tradition and uniqueness to our vows. In the end, she provided the best intro to the wedding festivities we could ask for. We highly recommend using Jodi and Young Hip & Married to any couple looking for an upbeat and memorable experience.Jake and Mardi
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
We had a great wedding experience with Peter and the YHM team. Communication was great and everyone was on-board and eager to help with our delays and ever-changing plans (covid!). Peter was the perfect fit for our outdoorsy, hike-in wedding. Would definitely recommend these guys to everyone.Stephanie & David
We love you Jane!!! What an amazing experience we had with Young Hip & Married, Jane was our officiant as well as our pre-wedding coach (highly recommended) and she absolutely rocked it. Our ceremony was more than we could have hoped for and we are so overwhelmed with gratitude. I will 100% be recommending YH&M to all of my friends.Bella & Alec
Shawn from Young, Hip, and Married was the officiant for our wedding in October 2016. Communication leading up to the wedding was prompt, the script he produced was fantastic and wonderfully tailored to us, and he made sure that everything went incredibly smoothly. YHM are paragons of professionalism, right down to the wedding rehearsal (which I highly recommend you take advantage of). I have literally no complaints about them and, were I to do it all over again, I’d still go with YHM. They’re not the cheapest, but you absolutely get what you pay for.Geoff Fisher
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
Just attended the wedding of my daughter and her fiancé this past Saturday. Shawn was the officiant and I can’t say enough about how amazing the whole ceremony was!! It was personal, and beautiful, and unique. There were light touches of humour and so much pure emotion felt by everyone!! Shawn obviously put a lot of thought into helping them plan their perfect ceremony and it was exactly that!! The best part of the day and a ceremony that won’t be forgotten!! Thank you so much!Linda - Mother of the Bride
My husband and I got married on August 6th, 2016. We chose Mark Groleau to be our officiant from Young Hip & Married. We were extremely happy with this decision! Choosing an officiant is a very important step when planning a wedding. As my husband and I are not religious, we really wanted an officiant who was personal, understood us, and made our ceremony very special. Mark was very easy to get along with, professional and courteous. We met a few times before the wedding to get organized and for Mark to learn our story. He made the actual ceremony very touching and personal by actually writing about us vs. reading anything general that could be applied to anyone. We recommend Mark to anyone. We honestly couldn’t picture anyone else marrying us!Bianca
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
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
Couldn’t have asked for a smoother process. I got the Elopement & Photography Plus package and everyone from the officiant to our photographer was absolutely wonderful! Highly recommend their services.Ashly & Dustin
Thank you Young Hip & Married! We were lucky enough to have Peter as our officiant; he was awesome! Peter contacted us early and helped us understand how the ceremony would flow and never pressured us when we were late with our vows. We came all the way from Florida and Peter made us feel comfortable from afar. Unfortunately, on the day of the ceremony, weather related challenges cancelled our original plans. We were faced with making on-the-spot changes and Peter was key in keeping us calm and reminded us that the day unfolded exactly the way it was supposed to. It was beautiful – just really cold! Thank you, Peter, for being an awesome human and making our ceremony something we will never forget!Keoni & Chris
My husband and I eloped with Young Hip & Married and it was everything we wanted and more! It was a no fuss, simple ceremony with just Shawn and Erica from Young Hip & Married… and us! Even short and sweet, the ceremony touched us very deeply. It truly felt like Shawn, our wedding officiant, “got” who we were as a couple without having met us once before the ceremony. Shawn’s wife Erica, who was our photographer that day, was professional but incredibly friendly, kind, encouraging, and above all, patient with us two camera-shy love birds. The photos were jaw-dropping, and the experience itself was all the more enjoyable because Shawn and Erica were there to add their love for each other and weddings to our special day. Thank you for creating such special memories for us!
- 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
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
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
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
So glad we made the very important decision to go with Young Hip and Married to officiant our ceremony. From the beginning I was impressed with how professional and kind Tara was. We had found out through our planning process that I was newly pregnant and Tara was nothing but patient and kind! Tara recommended Jane for Nick and I and I’m SO glad she did. We met Jane at a cute coffee shop and immediately felt comfortable and excited! Following after our first meet Jane sent us the draft on how our ceremony would commence. I was blown away at the beautiful words that Jane had written crying (happy tears) the whole way through! She was able to capture the mood and overall essence of our relationship, amazing!!The ceremony itself was more than we could have imagined, Nick and I both agreed Jane made it so easy for us. She spoke so eloquently and with true genuine love for our love. We wanted to tell our family at our wedding the sex of our baby and Jane came up with a sweet little entrance to announce our baby girl! All of our guests said she was incredible! Since it was such a small and intimate wedding I’m so thrilled we went with Young Hip and Married to find Jane it helped create the romantic, intimate and moody feel we were looking for. Worth every penny!! Thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts Jane will forever be someone special to us!!Jessica & Nick
We had a very small, intimate wedding. Having Shawn, as our officiant, and Erica, as our photographer, felt like we had two more close friends at our ceremony. Both instantly put us at ease and never made us feel rushed or anxious. Shawn’s words were so touching and heart felt, it seemed like he had known us for ages. Erica knew what our wishes were and stuck to them without making anyone else feel uncomfortable. We spent the first couple of hours as husband and wife, walking along the sea wall with Erica, and I can’t imagine it any other way. Our wedding was perfect and even more special than I ever could have imagined. Thank you so much Shawn and Erica! You are amazing!Melody Jean
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
Chris-Ann designed us the most intimate and personal wedding ceremony filled with love, laughter and everything in between. There wasn’t a dry eye at our wedding, mixed with smiles and cheers. Everyone has been talking about how intimate and personal and beautiful our ceremony was and that was the response we were hoping for. Thank you for guiding us through the process of writing our own personal vows and for marrying us. We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant.Mel & Ashley
Thank you once again for being our marriage officiant! You made the whole process very easy for us, including the rest of the Young Hip & Married team.Alvin & Jumi
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
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
- 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
I have only good things to say about Shawn. He was professional, organized, timely, thoughtful, caring and supportive throughout the whole process. He created the perfect ceremony that was specific to us as a couple. Everyone who attended our wedding commented on how awesome he was. My husband and I were both so nervous on the big day but when we got to finally see each other, hold hands up at the altar and listen to Shawn, all of that melted away and we were overcome with happiness and excitement. He convinced us to read our own personal vows and we are both very happy we did.
He was very understanding and patient with all of my edits of the ceremony (little add ins here and there) and found a way to encorporate anything and everything we asked for! Shawn had a big part in making our day as special and perfect as it was. Cannot thank him enough! Highly recommend!!Ashley Hayes
- 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
Our ceremony was the best part of our wedding day and that is all thanks to Young Hip & Married! Jane Halton officiated our ceremony and from start to finish, it was perfect. We booked Jane with only a month to go due to some covid changes and she immediately jumped into action. She wrote us a beautiful script that perfectly told our personal story and reflected all of our values. She was so open to changes. It was the perfect combination of allowing us to be creative and make our ceremony our own, while knowing that she was guiding us and everything was in her experienced and professional hands. Leading up to the wedding we also completed the Young Hip & Married vows course and it was incredibly helpful. We both wrote our own vows and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!
On the day, Jane showed up early and coordinated with us and our photographer. Immediately, she was a calming presence. Throughout the ceremony, we didn’t have to once worry about what Jane was going to say. And despite the fact that we had read the script, every word Jane said was so meaningful. Our guests loved her – so many guests, both in-person and on our live stream, raved about our officiant! Jane was the perfect mix of serious, sentimental and funny – exactly what we wanted! We always knew we wanted our ceremony to feel intimate, personal, meaningful and so us. And that is exactly what Jane and Young Hip & Married delivered!Colin & Riana
We hired Beth Carlson-Malena as our officiant and could not be more happy. From the moment we met her, we knew we had to hire her for our wedding. She was super accommodating, thoughtful and guided us through the process in the most smooth way possible. Our guests have been raving about the ceremony and how amazing the officiant was, many asking if she knew us prior since it felt that personal. She was funny, articulate & warm. We would highly recommend her.Jess & Sheena
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
Shawn was the best officiant we could have hoped for! Our ceremony was perfect and went very smoothly. Shawn kept in contact with us and made sure we were calm and comfortable. He said some great words to begin our ceremony too. Thanks for being so awesome!!Jessica Sigurdson
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
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
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
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
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 met up with Bobbi after viewing her video on the Young, Hip & Married website. As soon as we met her, we knew she was the one! She is extremely warm, funny, and was able to capture our personalities perfectly in the wedding vows! Many people came up to us after the ceremony and said she was amazing – so gifted and talented at what she does! We couldn’t agree more. Not only is she a beautiful person, but you can tell that she absolutely LOVES officiating. The BEST!!Andrew & Patricia
We had this team booked for us through a ceremony package and the whole experience was great! We received a full overview of how the day was going to go and a step by step about writing vows etc Overall it was all super easy which I think everyone wants on their wedding day!Dariya & Justin
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
- The biggest thing that I found frustrating during the initial wedding planning process was the lack of responses from 80% of the “vendors/companies” that I had emailed. That being said you guys were really on top of it all and answered all my many many questions quickly.
As for Cory, I have to say he is really amazing and the first time we met with him we knew we wanted him to do our wedding. Meeting anyone can be a bit nerve wracking to begin with but the energy that he carries and puts out makes you feel completely calm and relaxed.With the wedding day come and gone, I can say if I had to do it all again I would 100% still make the choice to use YH&M.Kandyce & Matthew
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
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
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
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
Jane was amazing. Throughout the whole process she was a treat to work with and really added to our perfect day.Alex & Cody
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
Honestly the best wedding officiants in Vancouver and quite possibly the world. The fact that they continue to grow and serve more and more couples speaks volumes for Shawn’s vision and his commitment to his clients. I love documenting weddings in Vancouver when Shawn or one of his incredible wedding officiants are involved. I’m excited for the future of Young Hip & Married and wish Shawn, Erica, Jane, and the whole team a beautiful 2021.Sachin Khona (Vancouver Photographer)
Amazing to deal with. Brought ideas to the table we hadn’t thought of and recommended ideas.Avery & Danica
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
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
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 our officiant was wonderful! She was quick with replying and so patient with us as we were not the easiest in communicating back with her. Our guests were very impressed on how personal the ceremony was and it did not feel long like the traditional ceremonies we have been to. The whole experience with YH&M was beyond expectation and we would 100% recommend working with them.Helen & Brian
We had Shawn officiate our wedding on Aug 21st and he was amazing! We changed our wedding to a small elopement ceremony and Young Hip & Married was beyond accommodating with changing our wedding date (twice!) and downgrading our package. Shawn had an amazing energy, beautiful words… he just made the whole experience that much better. Our families were so impressed! Would absolutely refer them to anyone 🙂Michelle & Albert
- 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
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 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
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
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 first contacted Young Hip and Married five years ago with an elopement date that we were dead set on. They followed us ever since and worked really hard to have our vision realized. Even when an unexpected event kept her from being present on our elopement day, she had everything arranged with her partner to ensure that we would not notice anything different! I hope to never need their services again (cuz you know… :P) but please if you just got engaged with no clue where to start, these guys are all you need to make things a whole lot easier and smoother!Kara & Andrew
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
How do I even begin? From the start of contacting YH&M they were All Stars. Absolutely amazing customer service. We wanted a sweet & simple (not boring) elopement and that’s when they hooked us up with our officiant Jane. We stayed in contact via email and every step along the way was easy. On our wedding day, Jane & her adorable personality showed up on time and exactly where we needed her to be. It was the perfect little ceremony we hoped for, a quick photo op & Jane was on her way doing all the dirty work for us. We even received follow up emails from both Jane and the owner of the company. Love love love Young Hip & Married. If you’re considering hiring them, stop considering & book them already!! Thank you!!Celina Seib
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
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!Johnnie & Justin
We had a great experience using Young Hip and Married for our wedding! We had Jane as our officiant – she was super friendly and was very easy to communicate with throughout our whole wedding process. We had to change our venue 3 times, and she was able to accommodate every change we made. She wasn’t able to make it to our rehearsal, but she made us a personal video outlining every important detail for us to know. She was very responsive to our emails and questions; we couldn’t be happier with the service she provided. Would recommend using her and YH&M for your ceremony!Peter & Jenn
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
Excellent and amazing service! Couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Thank you again for everything!Tyler & Stephanie
Absolutely recommend this amazing company. They were incredibly flexible, helpful, responsive during a stressful time to make wedding plans. We had to change dates due to COVID19 and they accommodated with understanding and professionalism. Our officiant Shawn was perfect, and his ceremony style is very comfortable and authentic. He adjusted his speech on the fly, as we had a few hiccups the day of our wedding. His words were so heartfelt. Shawn and his wife Erica (who provided photography for our wedding day) were the perfect dynamic duo to celebrate our day with us. Our photos are incredible and we couldn’t be happier to have them to look back on for the rest of our lives! The Young Hip & Married team was great from the initial planning phase all the way through to finally signing the papers. We couldn’t be more thankful for finding this company to be with us for our day!Delaney & Samara
Shawn was incredible. He fully customized our ceremony and presented it amazingly! He helped use each with our vows and was very helpful in calming my nerves about public speaking. I’ve had many guests tell me that it was the best wedding ceremony they have ever been through and what I enjoy mostly from that is that it was 100% personalized to my husband and I. We had the guests laughing and crying the whole ceremony!! Honestly, if you don’t go with Shawn … you are crazy!
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
Thank you so much YH&M! Our wedding was in Toronto and we had Anthony as our officiant. He was so wonderful during the entire planning process and completely wowed us on our wedding day. His charm and wit made every feel very relaxed, especially my husband and I. Thank you Anthony and thank you YH&M!Christina Marsala
Jodi was awesome. She showed up on time, added in readings that we requested, and was really friendly. She made the whole process painless. Thank you!Alyssa & Grayson
We chose Young Hip & Married based on the positive feedback from other couples and they did not disappoint. Shawn was our officiant and he was extremely supportive, encouraging and helpful. From our first meeting to our wedding day, Shawn was always there to see everything through. We loved how the ceremony was tailored for us and reflected us as a couple. We got many compliments from our family and friends and were asked more than a dozen times who Shawn works for! Thank you Young Hip & Married for a wonderful day. Thank you Shawn for making the journey to our big day an easy one. We really couldn’t have done it without you. You’ve left quite an impression with our wedding guests filling them with laughter and tears of joy!Samantha Aeron
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
Callan and I knew that we were looking for something different when it came to our ceremony. Not the traditional wedding officiant style that we had seen at weddings before. When we began our planing, we had not heard of Young Hip & Married until our wedding planner shared their website with us. After reviewing each of the team members videos and bios, we decided to meet Erika. Within 3 minutes of meeting Erika, we felt like we had been friends with her for 20 years and that she had been alongside our journey together the entire time. It was a perfect fit. The ceremony that Erika created was truly beautiful and perfectly us. The entire process was amazing from the first interview to each and every interaction we had with Erika and the YH&M team! I remember the day we got our first draft and I cried when I read it, because she had captured every essence of our relationship and love for one another in a way that was us. Best decision we made by far and would highly recommend them to anyone!!Jessica & Callan
We 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
We can’t thank Young Hip & Married and Jonathan enough for all their help on our special day. Young Hip & Married was always punctual with email responses and reassured and answered all our questions. My husband and I are eternally grateful for Jonathan (our Officiant). He exudes friendliness and love and made every effort to get to know us and tailor our ceremony to us. His questions and style of getting to know us was perfect and we had so much fun filling out the questionnaire for our ceremony. We cannot count the number of compliments we received about our ceremony. Our guests complimented how fun, personal, and succinct it was. Guests said it was the most fun ceremony they have ever been to. Thank you Young Hip & Married!Amanda & Daniel
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
- Young Hip & Married was everything that we could have asked and hoped for, for our wedding! Jason was friendly, approachable, understanding, patient, insightful, and always prompt in returning emails, texts, or phone calls. Jason ensured that everyone involved with our ceremony was cognizant and prepared in their role. The man knows how to direct traffic! He was open minded to our ideas and wishes, and offered some fantastic advice from his perspective. Jason’s honest and receptive nature made us very comfortable, and calmed our excited nerves on our big day! It was obvious from the moment we met Jason, that we knew he and Young Hip & Married were a professional, well-run, and fun organization, and they did not disappoint. We highly recommend Jason and Young Hip & Married! Thank you so much!Garrett & Steph
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
Great service! Officiant Rich was very attentive, understanding and professional. Highly recommended!Windsor Lam
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
My husband and I just wanted a very small wedding and just a month to do all the planning and preps. When I researched and read about Young Hip and Married, read and heard really good feedback about their services I immediately contacted them and response time was superb, very professional, kind and warm. Our very intimate wedding in Beacon Park in Sidney was such a perfect day we could not have asked for more (except for the bride’s family was not able to come from overseas due to COVID). Chris-Ann (officiant) and Taylor (photographer) were SUPER AMAZING. We had Zoom meetings prior and email exchanges up to before the wedding day. They were so amazing guiding us throughout. Thank you again Chris-Ann, Taylor and Young Hip & Married. I really do recommend them.Nickola & Justin
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
- 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 anyone getting married and who wants their day to be as memorable and special as it can beLisa Fennell
- Jef, you were absolutely amazing yesterday; we are so blown away. Perfect! Everyone told us that was the best ceremony they have ever been to. Also the off-the-cuff “no kicking motion” comment is being considered the greatest officiant comment of all time. Everyone loved it!Mish & Tim
Shawn Miller is the best of the best. He had wonderful energy and came through for us only a few days before my wedding. After calling Young Hip & Married twice, I thought they didn’t return my phone calls. But after posting to Shawn online about it, he got involved and got down to it and solved all my problems. My mother forgot to replay the message to me 🙁 but despite the mix up, he delivered. I can’t thank him enough. And would recommend him to everyone and anyone getting married.Jessica Morrisson
Young Hip and Married was great to work with! Lani was our marriage officiate and even though we did not meet in person prior to the wedding day, she made our ceremony very personal and special. Lani was very authentic when she spoke about commitment and our union. I would totally recommend Young Hip and Married to anyone who wants a unique and awesome experience on their special day! Thank you!Todd & Angela
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
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
Kristen was our officiant and she was completely amazing! Her ceremony was beautiful and we had tons of compliments from our family and friends on how great she was. She was an absolute pleasure to get to know and to work with. Customer service and all of our administrative interactions at YHM with any of their staff were professional, warm, and friendly. Highly recommend their service! We had absolute peace of mind that we were looked after for our big day.Megan & Jonathan
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
So happy I found Young Hip & Married. Jane (our officiant) was awesome! The ceremony was quick and sweet.Sarah M
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
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
Erika was the PERFECT person to lead our wedding ceremony. From the moment I met her, her warm and engaging nature made me feel comfortable and at ease. After just one coffee visit and a short intake form, Erika created a draft ceremony script that was as if she had known Gary and I our whole lives. During the ceremony, she struck the perfect balance between having us and our guests in sentimental tears and light-hearted laughs, which is exactly what we wanted. Our wedding involved the fusion of Western and Sikh cultures, and Erika created a ceremony that honoured our parents and our backgrounds in a unique and perfect way, and gave us words of wisdom to remember as we move on in our marriage together. I cry every time I think of our ceremony and how perfect it was. Thank you for being such an important part of the start of our new lives together.Jessica & Gary
- We wanted to write and say thank you so much for being part of OUR day! Honestly, pulling up in a cloud of dust after continuing a search for us (I am SO sorry about the directions!), you were such a delight! Although our parents weren’t there, I felt as though you were a proud mother sending me over the cliff to meet Matt! Many comments of how lovely and thoughtful, excited and appreciative of the work we had put in to create our day, and genuinely in love with what you do were said after you left, that is absolutely what couples should look for when they are seeking someone to marry them!We appreciated your excitement, your sincerity, our instant connection with you, your easy-going nature and the fact that you created a genuine celebration not for us, but WITH us.It was a day we will never forget and we couldn’t stop saying, on the drive home, how perfect everything was…even the timing!You were a beautiful part of our day. Thank you, thank you!Acacia & Matt
We booked Young Hip & Married for our tiny forest ceremony in Stanley Park through Pop Up Weddings BC. Our officiant was Kadee and she was absolutely wonderful to work with as we designed our ceremony script together. She was very responsive and friendly in all of her emails (and she was thrilled to include a territorial acknowledgement when we requested it!). Kadee was perfect during the ceremony; she was so calm and sweet and we could really tell that she loves helping folks like us tie the knot. Highly, highly recommended!Alison & Brian
Kadee was soooooo amazing!!!! Not only did she do an amazing job telling our story she was great from the beginning getting information from us. We loved that she was able to incorporate some Spanish to make all of our guests feel included in our day. We received so many compliments from our guests. We couldn’t have asked for a better ceremony.Claudia & Derek
- 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
On their experience with Jane: Wonderful service. From the first time we contacted them, they were friendly and helpful, and quick with their responses. I was worried that I’d given too short notice for our wedding date, but they were very accommodating, even though I wasn’t sure about the exact time when I contacted them (even asked them for advice!). Booking with them was easy, and stress-free. Would definitely recommend!Abby
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
Chris-Ann Lake was amazing. We met via Zoom first to discuss the details, then went back and forth and figured out the ceremony. On the day she did such a great job delivering the ceremony and getting us organized. Would highly recommend working with Chris-Ann!Caitlin & Alexander
- Jodi was amazing. What she wrote was personal, funny and heartwarming! We had an amazing experience!Cayley & Douglas
This is long over due as we were married March 5th. What can I say, these guys are FANTASTIC. Let’s add a little back story. The Mrs and I have been trying to plan our wedding for the last few years, well, last week of February we finally decided to do it. Well within a week Young Hip & Married was able to step up to the plate. They provided us an officiant and a photographer, both were fantastic. We were married half way up the Sea-to-Sky gondola. Yes you heard correctly, half way up, we wanted something different.
Keep up the great work Young and Hip. You, literally, made our day amazing and unforgettable.Leonard
Great experience! Cory our officiant was absoulety amazing every step of the way.Naomi F
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
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
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
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
We worked with Beth from Young Hip & Married throughout our COVID wedding plans that involved multiple changes due to the pandemic. She was amazing and so kind throughout the process. We were both particularly enamoured with how personalized the experience was. Numerous guests at our wedding commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and what an excellent job Beth did! One aunt actually thought Beth was an old friend of ours because of how many stories and personal touches she included in our ceremony. Can not say enough nice things about her and this company!!!!!Jeff & Carrie
My Mother-in-Law is still talking about the cool boots that Shawn wore. More importantly though he tailored his service to maximize the amount of time we had for pictures in the cool setting where we got married.Liz & Zach
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
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
The perfect vows were sent to us , nothing needed to be changed , we could not believe what a wonderful person we were given to speak our vows with . Truly the best wedding of my life and I have had 3!Sandi & Duncan
- 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
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
We truly felt you captured Dave and I as a couple during our ceremony. It was an amazing day and we are so happy that we had you as our officiant!Kailah & Dave
Our officiant was Lani and she was absolutely amazing!! My husband and I were both nervous about the ceremony but she kept it light and not too serious. She added some humorous moments that seemed to break up the seriousness. I also appreciated when she came up with some ideas (like having people introduce themselves to other they didn’t know prior to the ceremony) that were different. She spent a lot of time getting to know us and writing a totally personalized ceremony. I would definitely recommend!Jessica Feskun
Thank you Young Hip & Married! Shawn delivered above & beyond for our special day, making it perfect. Erica, I can’t express enough the talent you entail and amazing works of art! Thank you both for your charisma, talents, and amazing personalities and joining us for our special day xxKatrina & William
My new husband and I were SO grateful to have Cory as our officiant on our big day. On top of being incredibly professional, he has a warm/welcoming demeanor and had endless amazing ideas of how to make our ceremony personal and unique (all of which our guests loved). Many of our guests told us that the ceremony was the highlight of the day, and much of this we have to credit to Cory. We can’t thank Cory enough!Stephanie Wong
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
Jodi from Young Hip & Married was our officiant for our wedding in July 2019. We absolutely loved our experience of working with YH&M, particularly with Jodi. Everything was easy, organized and straight forward. A few months before the wedding, we met with Jodi over coffee and told her our story, where she made us feel comfortable right from the beginning. About a month before our ceremony, Jodi provided us with a customized ceremony script for us to review and it was amazing. She had captured our story so perfectly – it was a perfect balance of sweet and sentimental, but also funny and lighthearted.
On the day of the ceremony, Jodi was totally flexible for a last minute change to the ceremony location (weather related) and she had a calming presence which was so reassuring. The ceremony had its hiccups (nothing to do with Jodi), but she handled it all with ease. So many of our guests commented on how special and amazing our ceremony was – they (along with us) were so impressed with Jodi. I honestly am so thankful that we found YH&M and Jodi – selecting Jodi as our officiant was among the best decisions we made for our wedding!Rachel & Tom
- We just wanted to reach out and thank you so much for a wonderful day. You were fantastic and we really appreciate you taking the time to come out and marry us. Your words were perfect and we are so thankful for your energy on the day.Nikki & Stefan
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
After 14 years and 2 kids, my partner Jason and I decided to get married. We were delighted with Lani Brunn and how sweet and confident she was. We were able to get married with a very small group of friends on Third Beach in Stanley Park on Valentine’s Day. Having no family attending, save the one I created with Jason, Lani felt like a big sister, and helped to keep me calm as we ran late waiting for the only woman I would wait for—my mother-in-law, Della. I would highly recommend Young Hip & Married if you’ve been looking to get married, not just throw a wedding.Anna M.
Honestly we were so pleased with our little covid wedding. Many changes had to take place to finally get a wedding, but we are so thrilled with how it turned out, and how accommodating Young Hip and Married were. Shawn was so magnetic and engaging; he had us so present in the moment. The few guests we had, and who watched the ceremony virtually, thought Shawn had been our friend for years, when in fact we had never spoke before that morning!! I can’t express how great it was for someone to be so comfortable in their job, and just know the perfect things to say. I will 100% tell all of my friends.Suzanne & Andrew
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
- We wanted to say a big thank you for officiating such a natural and organic ceremony! It went beautifully with the setting and our personalities. I could tell that our guests had a great time, and you absolutely helped facilitate that!Jeremy & Josephine
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
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 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 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
- Marilyn was awesome, and I appreciate all the hard work she put in to making the ceremony go off without a hitch.Kristina
YHM are not like your usual officiants, they bring a spark of energy and life into your ceremony all while making it heartfelt and personal. Shawn made us feel at ease and as if he’s known us for years. This is a great choice if you want your ceremony to be more of a memorable experiences and connection with your guests!Elaine & Catalin
Thank you so much for facilitating our elopement! It was perfect in every way! Your personal touch to make it “ours” was wonderful, and you helped us make an amazing memory of a lifetime 🙂 We would love to frame the fantastic poem and vows you wrote as you did such a great job of capturing who we are!Tomoko & Jason
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
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
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
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
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
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 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
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
We had the joy of being married by Erika from Young Hip & Married. She made everything so easy and was an absolute doll from the first day we met her. Even leading up to meeting Erika and deciding she was the perfect fit, Young Hip & Married made everything very simple and were so quick to respond to all my questions. Once we met Erika and she began her process of writing our ceremony she went above and beyond everything we imagined to make this so personal. Her words were beautiful and she made everything about us and our love just as we asked. Even after the wedding, Young Hip & Married showed how efficient they are by submitting all of the paperwork so quickly making us receive our marriage license in just under two weeks which we were amazed by. So many thank yous and so much love towards Erika and Young Hip & Married.Alisha & Colin
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
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
Cory from Young Hip and Married made the whole experience so much fun. Most of our pictures are of us laughing. Such a great experience amd would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you!Jessica Alcott
Shawn made the process so simple and easy. We received nothing but compliments with his services, everyone loved it. He told a story, our story and it meant a lot to family and friends. Thanks for everything Shawn!Miles & Nicole
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
Young Hip & Married offers you a choice of officiants and you are able to watch videos recorded by each of the officiants to get a feel for them. I loved this because I was really looking for something unique and different and we were SO pleased with our officiant Lani Brunn. I had so many people tell me how wonderful and personal they thought the ceremony was and what an amazing officiant we had. Lani is amazing and such a lovely and genuine person, she is a goddess!!!Bryce & Holly
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
We would highly recommend Young Hip & Married to anyone who is looking to elope in BC! Booking was a breeze, the team promptly responded to any questions we had and they were a delight to deal with. We are over the moon with the photos we have received so far, and we received our filed marriage certificate in a few weeks. Due to the weather, we had to change the location we were hoping to get married at multiple times on the day. Both Erica (photographer) and Erika (officiant) dealt with our last minute panic with a smile and showed nothing but professionalism. If you are looking to elope in BC, there isn’t any better option then YH&M… it is as simple as that 🙂Kieran & Hannah
Personable, friendly and exactly what we were looking for! We absolutely loved working with the YH&M team. Rich was also incredible, making sure that the ceremony truly reflected our individual style and exactly what we wanted. He was personable and lovely to work with. I would highly recommend working with Rich and the team!Brittney & Jared
Chris-Ann really had everyone talking about just how wonderfully different, personal and special her entire presentation, vibe and ceremony was! “One of the best weddings we’ve ever been to, it was so personal!” Thank you for making our wedding one of the best days of our lives!Ashley & Melissa
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
Me and my now husband come from different countries, cultures and religions. Our parents don’t speak English and we had no translators. Now imagine how difficult it was be to be our officiant.
We met a couple of other officiants, but when we met Kristen, we knew she was the one. She took the time to listen to our story and prepare a very a personalized ceremony and helped us with the vows. She came early and was dressed professionally. It was a great experience.Orgilsaikhan Byambajav
Young Hip & Married were great to deal with right from the start. They were responsive, professional and helpful. Initially, my fiancé and I were going to go with the standard ceremony package but we ended up going with the Rockin Wedding story package and are so glad we did. We got paired up with Jonathan Manafo and he was the highlight of our wedding ceremony (other than us!). Our guests approached us after the ceremony and asked us how long we had known Jonathan for because it seemed like he was an old friend. We were so pleased with the company and with Jonathan. We will definitely recommend YH&M to all our friends/family/anyone getting married.Melissa & Kevin
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
I cannot say enough good things about our officiant, Lauren! We had to make many changes to our wedding amidst the Covid-19 pandemic and Lauren (and the rest of the YH&M team) were incredibly supportive and flexible. We had a zoom meeting with Lauren to introduce ourselves and ended up sharing many laughs, feeling even MORE excited about our upcoming nuptials, and like we had known her for years. She has a genuine approach, great energy, and we felt she totally had our back every step of the way. We had so many complements from our guests in regards to Lauren – she was the cherry on top for our perfect day. Thank you YH&M for linking us with Lauren; she’s an 11/10! xoxoxo Lisa & DarrylLisa & Darryl
Kadee was perfect in every way – respectful and cognizant of time and venue. Her follow up was also amazing. I highly recommend Young Hip & Married, and specifically, Kadee, to everyone.Christy L
Peter was our officiant and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Peter listened to exactly what we wanted and provided helpful tips about our ceremony. We worked collaboratively to create a ceremony that was perfect for us!Sue & Wanjohi
- 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
Best decision we’ve ever made!! My husband and I had Shawn officiate and from the moment we met him, we knew he was our guy! The whole process was smooth and stress free but what amazed me the most was how he was able to capture us so perfectly as a couple. He set the tone for our perfect day and made it better than we could’ve ever imagined!!!Dan & Beca
Great to work worth! They came through on such short notcie and made our day so special! Highly recommended 🙂Angela
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.
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
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
Very professional and knowledgeable. They guided us through this event and we’d be happy to recommend them to anyone.Vanessa & James
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
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
Gwen was prompt and organized in answering our queries about availability and setting up a time and date to plan. We live in another province so she quickly set up a Skype call with us so that she could get to know us, all about our values, interests, and relationship. She sent us detailed information about the ceremony and supported us in writing our vows.
At the rehearsal, she had excellent ideas about staging and was very efficient about timing. Her calm and friendly manner put everybody at ease, and her sense of humour invited everyone into the process. She was extremely interested in making our ceremony amazing. She calmed any nerves, questions or concerns we might have had.
The ceremony Gwen delivered was absolutely beautiful! Her words were beautifully chosen, and so fitting with our personalities, values, and relationship. We felt showered with love! Gwen made the
celebration of our marriage absolutely perfect! Our guests consistently commented on the beauty of our ceremony, the words chosen, and how much it fit with us! Many marveled that the words of both of our vows matched the words in the ceremony very consistently. That’s how in tune Gwen was with us as a couple. We cannot thank her enough for the respectful, enthusiastic, organized and heartfelt way she worked with us. She helped us plan the perfect ceremony to start our marriage and life together!Ginger & Todd
Shawn and the rest of the Young Hip & Married Team were an absolute dream to work with!! We are still buzzing from our big day. Thanks for making our elopement in the woods so very special! I would highly recommend the Young Hip & Married team and eloping/micro weddings to all! Shawn was the most chill and down to earth officiant! He was the perfect fit to marry my hubby and I. Thanks again for everything you did!Taryn & Daniel
Mark from Young Hip & Married was perfect for our wedding ceremony. Mark performed a non-denominational service, and took time to get to know us and explain the ceremony to us (made sure we were comfortable).
Mark received great compliments from our guests (best ceremony ever was not an exaggeration). Other vendors and guests asked for his contact information. In fact, one guest hired him for an upcoming wedding in 2017!Sean
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 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
We wanted a small and intimate wedding while on holiday in Vancouver and a quick search online brought up Young Hip & Married. So, we did our research on them and we couldn’t find a bad word about them, just an absolute abundance of positivity. On the day, we were blessed to have Shawn as our officiant; he instantly put us at ease and the ceremony was delightful. He is all around fantastic at his job and we felt honoured to have him perform the wedding. We also had Emily as our photographer. When originally looking at her previous work, I was drawn to her dark artistic style. We decided to choose Emily for that reason. On the day, Emily made us feel incredibly comfortable in front of the camera and as if no one else was around. It was a beautiful and bright day, so I was intrigued to see how the photos would turn out. We couldn’t be happier with the final product. It felt like a total contrast to what previous work we had seen but with her own unique artistic style. She is a truly talented professional. A massive thank you to everyone that made our day so special.Mat & Joanna
Amazing experience all around. Great customer service. Anthony was wonderful.Kylie Virtue
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 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!
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
My husband and I had Shawn Miller officiate our wedding this October and it was one of the best decisions we made by far! What a nice guy! From the beginning Shawn was friendly, personable, enthusiastic and caring. He made sure to create a ceremony that was authentic and unique to our personalities. He made me feel so comfortable that I wasn’t even nervous by the time I got to the altar! Our guests are still talking about how engaging and perfect our ceremony was and assume Shawn is a long time friend of ours. Highly recommend!Kayzia Mitchell
- 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
Shawn accommodated us in every way possible, from not having a real location set when we booked, to changing the time and then trekking down a hiking path on a dreary Saturday in January. He made me feel so at ease and added personal details to our ceremony which made it even more amazing. I couldn’t imagine having anyone else there that day.Christina
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
YH&M is an amazing company! We had Jane officiate our ceremony and she put many hours of detail into creating a blended Persian & Canadian ceremony unique to us. The price is on the higher end, but it is definitely worth the investment! Our ceremony was personalized, professional, and we had a lot of input into the final version. Well done YH&M!Vanessa & Ehsan
We couldn’t have chosen a better officiant. Shawn was so eloquent and fun and really made the ceremony special. You’re in amazing hands with YHM.Lorenzo & Laura
- 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
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 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
We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding officiant than Jane. She is laid back enough to make it fun and non-stressful to work with her, but not so laid back that she is casual or trivial—she takes seriously the significance and honour of the ceremony. She took the time to get to know us as a couple, and this allowed her to be very personal in her homily, and to speak words of encouragement and challenge that will remain with us for a lifetime.B & D
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
- 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
Peter La Grand from Young Hip & Married was the perfect officiant! He made it very easy to work with him to plan a very thoughtful and meaningful wedding ceremony. He brought a wonderfully light and positive energy to the experience and he was personable and dynamic. He skillfully knew exactly when to step in and when to give us space and time to fully enjoy the experience. He also worked well with the photographer to ensure that we had important moments captured in pictures. We highly recommend him!Karen & Ryan
Quality of Service: 5.0, Responsiveness: 5.0, Professionalism: 5.0, Value: 5.0, Flexibility: 5.0
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
Jodi was great! We were very comfortable with her from the onset of our first meeting and she was easy to work with as we planned our big day! She was well prepared, she listened to the details of our relationship in our early discussions and as a result, she nailed her initial draft of how the ceremony would unfold. On the day prior and the day of, Jodi took control of the rehearsal and helped keep the calm in advance of the ceremony. Also, Rebecca, who was our initial point of contact was extremely responsive and helped create additional excitement which made us more engaged in the process. Overall, though Young Hip and Married was slightly more expensive than the other vendors we interviewed, we felt that the value provided substantiated the slightly higher cost and then some and would we strongly recommend them to anyone looking for a seamless experience. Well done!Jackie & Scott
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
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
We had the perfect experience! Thank you Peter for making this such an easy experience! No stress and exactly what we wanted! Highly recommend these guys! Thank you again for everything!!Adrianna & Tiziana
We had Jason Frizzell as our officiant and he was fantastic! Very personalized ceremony, he had a very similar sense of humour to us and everything went smoothly. Would definitely recommend! Yes, they are a premium service but you get fully customized service! 100% recommended.Emma & Khalen
This team is amazing. From the first video message from Rebecca, all the way through to thanking Marilyn for doing such an amazing ceremony, Young Hip and Married made getting married the easiest part of our Big Day. Thank you all so very much and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Young Hip & Married Team to anyone looking for someone to help them tie the knot.Kyle & Fiona
Absolutely amazing! Young Hip and Married helped make our wedding perfect. If you are lucky enough to get Shawn as your officiant, you will not be let down! Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!Jeff & Jenn
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
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
Discovering Young Hip and Married was the best thing that could have happened for my husband and I. Upon reading what they were all about we knew we had found our officiant- we hired Shawn Miller, and he made our ceremony so much more than we could have dreamed.
Shawn’s energetic and enthusiastic vibes really set the tone for our wedding, and he embraced our style and desire for a simple and fun ceremony. He tailored it to us and delighted us with the work he did. His communication leading up to the big day was fantastic, and we never felt like anything was ever left on the table. He made sure we felt confident with him.
Shawn Miller made our day better than I had imagined it- and I’m a girl who has been dreaming about her wedding day for YEARS. Thank you so much Shawn for creating such a special ceremony for us, we are truly grateful!
Also to note, we hired Erica Miller as our photographer. She was wicked! She fit right in with us and our bridal party. We were able to laugh and joke all day and I never felt like she missed a moment with her camera. We had positive feedback from all of our guests about both her and Shawn. We couldn’t speak more highly of either of them!Rebecca Jamieson
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
We had a great experience with YH&M. Their script was fantastic, our officiant was sweet and flexible when we had to change our date & venue for the elopement. It’s not for everyone, but if you want a small ceremony hosted by an excellent and approachable stranger, they’re the best. I’m the fourth person I know who’s used them – small ceremonies are popular these days, I guess!Noemi & Adam
Thanks Erica and Jane! They were super friendly, professional and accommodating. Our wedding was simple and quick. Erica was our photographer and she took some amazing photos that an amateur photographer would not be able to replicate. I highly recommend their services.Brandon & Eryl
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
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
Had an awesome experience with our elopement. Everything was simple, smooth and we felt completely taken care of. Thanks, Erica and Shawn!Benjamin & Alison
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
Thank you, Young Hip & Married! Shawn delivered above & beyond for our special day, making it perfect. Erica, I can’t express enough the talent you entail and amazing works of art! Thank you both for your charisma, talents, and amazing personalities and joining us for our special day xx Mr. & Mrs. KerrKatrina & William
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
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
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
Having a personalized ceremony was extremely important to us. Have you ever been to a wedding that left you with confusion, that was emotionless or maybe one that simply didn’t reflect who the couple really was? We have been to plenty of those, and we can tell you that Young Hip & Married is the complete opposite! We had the pleasure of working with Jane, who drafted up the most personal ceremony we could have ever imagined. From quick email responses, unrelenting enthusiasm and authentic happiness for our upcoming wedding we could not have made a better decision having Jane as our officiant. It’s no wonder than Jane won “Best Wedding Officiant” at the BC Wedding Awards this past year! We also took advantage of their Marriage Coaching add-on that allowed us to ultimately address some topics that could have the potential to cause a rift at some point down the road (for any couple who has never had a heated discussion about something to do with money, you’re lying to yourself). Like most couples, we only plan on getting married once, so we owed it to ourselves to invest into our marriage before it even begun. Jane was there for us every step of the way, and we could not be more thankful that we had her to set the tone for our special day. If you are in need of an officiant for your upcoming wedding or perhaps you’re doing research for someone else, stop your search here because you need Jane to be part of your day. Jane is the real deal and you will not be disappointed with how much time, energy and love she puts into her work.Jennifer & Michael
Thank you for having made Kevin and Kristy Hatch’s wedding so safe, relaxed, meaningful and fun. Your energy was lovely – very calming, comforting and authentic. I am so glad they chose you. Thank you for your presence and your wonderful way of being. You made a hugely important event to me (and to them) absolutely wonderful in every way. And how you handled the forgetting of the marriage licence was just so kind and flexible and caring. You have certainly found your calling in life, Cory. Thanks again, from the bottom of my heart.Wendy Vaughn (Kevin's mom)
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
Kristen, from Young Hip & Married, officiated our wedding this August and I can only begin to tell you how amazing she is! I had an officiant already booked for our wedding, but when friends of ours got married in June with Kristen, I just knew I had to have her and cancelled our old officiant and booked her immediately! Kristen was amazing from the first email. She is incredibly sweet, prompt with returning emails, her outfits are appropriate and beautiful, and she just absolutely loves her job. Kristen is the first to tell you that she loves love and it is so apparent. Our ceremony was so personalized because Kristen actually cares enough to truly get to know her couples! I have had multiple friends and family members come to me and say how awesome she was also. I would recommend her to anyone and the cost is so worth it!Marissa & Krisztian
Jane Halton was great! On time, energetic and very personable. I highly recommend her!!! Thank you Young Hip and Married!Dan Reynolds
Thank you for making the day exactly how we wanted! Your team of planners, officiants, and photographers are amazing.Chelanne & Chris
Young Hip and Married kicked off our wedding day and really made it a special ceremony. Throughout the entire process the team communicated with us frequently to ensure that they really captured our love story. During the ceremony our guests were so engaged, they shared tears, along with big belly laughs. After the ceremony we have had so many of our guests comment on how great our officiant was and they haven’t experienced a ceremony like this before. We are so happy with the service we received from YH&M and would highly recommend their company.Vanessa & Zach
We are so happy with Young Hip and Married. Our officiant, Jon Wiebe, was awesome and made the magical day really easy and thoughtful. Could not be more happy with the experience and highly recommend both Young Hip and Married and Jon!Zack & Samantha
Young Hip & Married are amazing! Throughout the entire process they were extremely friendly and professional. We had Lani as our officiant and we cannot say enough positive things about her. Lani has an amazing energy and makes you feel completely comfortable. Lani also has tons of experience and it shows. During the rehearsal, Lani made sure every little detail was discussed… and yes ,you don’t have to have that awkward conversation about asking her to move out of the way for your photographer to capture your first kiss as Husband and Wife because she is on it haha! We loved her personalized story and we’re over the moon with how the ceremony turned out. It was so refreshing to deal with such an upbeat and friendly professional throughout the wedding planning process. Thank you, Young Hip & Married and Lani!Natalie & Tyler
We used Young Hip and Married to plan our small wedding ceremony. They were easy to talk to and very helpful. We had to postpone our wedding once due to covid and they were very accommodating, our photographer has to cancel the day before due to person reasons and they were able to find us a new one right away. Thanks so much, will definitely be recommending this company.Sierra & Michael
Young Hip 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
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
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
Shawn was awesome! He made the ceremony about us and our love. I would highly recommend Young Hip & Married for your special day.Jennifer & Tobin
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
We had such an amazing experience with Young Hip & Married! We contacted them not quite knowing what we wanted for our ceremony, but knew we wanted it to be more personalized to suit us and tell our story. Jodi at Young Hip & Married was so great to work with! It was such a relief to find to her! The amount of advice and guidance she gave us leading up to the big day was beyond helpful and made us feel so much more at ease. From our meet and greet, to the flow of the ceremony, to tips on writing our vows, down to making sure our family and friends were present and engaged during our ceremony, it’s hard to put in to words how perfectly everything turned out. We honestly couldn’t have ask for anything more! We thank you Jodi and the YH&M team for helping us create the most memorable experience of our lives!Natalie & Matt
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
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
We were thrilled with the service from Young Hip and Married for our small, intimate wedding. We contacted them on quite short notice and they were extremely accommodating. They were thoughtful, caring, and easy to communicate with. On the day of our wedding, Shawn was organized, expert, and relaxed. We had an incredibly special and memorable ceremony, without going through great pains to explain ahead of time what we were looking for. Would HIGHLY recommend if you want a clear, professional planning process, and an intimate, meaningful day-of!
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
We were fortunate enough to have Cory Dueck from YH&M officiate our wedding. He went above and beyond to make sure we all felt comfortable and to make our ceremony personal, meaningful, and funny. Several of our guests asked how we knew Cory/how long we’ve known him – which speaks to how well he highlighted our unique personalities and relationship in the ceremony. With YH&M, you’ll forever have fond memories of that “I do” moment, they are worth every penny.Laura Hayes
Lani officiated our wedding and is absolutely amazing! Many of our guests thought she was a friend of ours because she is so warm and personable. Would definitely recommend!!Jesse & Christian
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 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
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
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
We cannot recommend YH&M enough, and in particular our absolutely amazing officiant Erika Enns. From the administration, to the owners, to our officiant, everyone was quick to respond, invested in our vision, and most importantly kind. We were one of the couples affected by the Sea to Sky Gondola, and they went above and beyond to ensure our officiant could make our new location for both our rehearsal and wedding. Our ceremony was personal and special, with all our guests saying it was the best they had seen!Crystal & Dave
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 used Young Hip & Married for our wedding in September. We were so happy with the way they could customize our ceremony to be EXACTLY what we wanted and nothing we didn’t! They wanted to know about us as a couple, how did we meet, big adventures we had been on together and what words we would use to sum up our relationship. Then from there they put together exactly what we wanted for our special day! It was amazing! I highly reccomend Young Hip & Married.Crystal & Curtis
Absolutely amazing – Our ceremony was perfect! It was the best part of the entire day. It was so us! Jodi made us both feel comfortable and shared in our laughter. She was incredible to work with, tailored our ceremony to us exactly, and helped us write our vows.Sarah & Steven
The team at Young Hip & Married were such a pleasure to work with! Erika, our officiant, and Rebecca in customer relations were quick to respond to all our questions about the big day and made us feel prepared and at ease! My husband and I loved every second of our special day and we highly recommend Young Hip & Married!!Kinga & Nicolas
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
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
Right for us! Marilyn was our officiant. She was energetic, warm, and spoke well. We loved how she engaged the guests and included them in our wedding ceremony. Our ceremony was at times joyful and at times solemn – just right. Marilyn arrived early, and the ceremony started and ended as scheduled. We are grateful!Hana & Peter
We absolutely loved having Shawn! His approach was brilliant – his delivery perfect – and his green shoes incredible. Shawn made sure that the ceremony was just like we had envisioned.Spencer & Rebecca
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
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
I am SO glad we had Cory from Young Hip & Married officiate our wedding. He made our wedding ceremony so personal, memorable and special. Right from the beginning when we first met him it was like sitting with a friend, and he made us both so excited for the big day. He felt like one of the family and truly set the tone of the big day by creating an incredible atmosphere of love at our ceremony. I would recommend him to all brides and grooms.Carly
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
My wife and I were so happy with Young Hip & Married. We unfortunately had to cancel our first venue and move the wedding. YHM were so accommodating and provided us with Randy Hamm to fit the change. We met with Randy and he really made the effort to get to know us and contacted our family and friends. He was able to put together a unique ceremony specific to my wife and I, filled with references from our favourite movies and lifestyle. Thanks so much YHM for the the best day ever!Katie & Ryan
Thank you, Jane!!! It was such a special day. Everything was perfect and we wouldn’t have done anything differently! The ceremony was our favorite part of the day and that was the part I was most nervous about, thank you for everything! Everyone was raving about how great you were.Tara & Kevin
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
My husband Al and I were lucky enough to have Shawn and Erica as our officiant and photographer! I have leukemia and my treatment is not going so well, and my biggest wish was to marry my fiance Al. The generosity of Young Hip & Married, Shawn, Erica and Rebecca made this happen for us and in really short notice too! We did a helicopter elopement, and Shawn and Erica were so much fun and we had the best experience imaginable. We highly, highly recommend Young Hip & Married!!!Ffion & Al
We were beyond happy with the service provided, it felt like our officiant was someone who knew us well and wrote such special words. We had the 10 person elopement package and would 100% recommend this company/package to anyone looking to get married!Sarah & Benjamin
Words can’t expressed how pleased and amazed we were with our choice in using Young Hip and Married as our officiants for our September 2nd, 2017 wedding! We had the pleasure to work with JANE HALTON! She was extremely professional, organized, so easy to talk to and get to know, and so talented at creating the best ceremony script! Our guests were blown away at how personalized, fun, yet romantic the ceremony was. We literally had guests tell us it was “the best they have ever been to.” I would highly recommend investing in Young Hip and Married/Jane Halton for your upcoming wedding!!! Thanks again Jane!!! You are the best!Kylie
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
- I can’t rate them high enough!!! Erika was absolutely incredible!! She made us feel so comfortable on the day and through the entire process. Love this company!!!Erika, you were simply magical. Not only were you the right fit for Ryan and I but my guests continually came up to me after the ceremony and said how beautiful your words were and how calm and chilled out you conducted our ceremony. We couldn’t have asked for anything more and are just so happy with how it all turned out. Thank you so much for being apart of our special day. We will never forget it!Jenna & Ryan
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
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
Kristen we wanted to say thanks again for being part of our ceremony. You made both Brandon and I feel so comfortable, and you really were the perfect person to marry us. We could not have asked for anyone better.Hailey & Brandon
We saw Young Hip & Married in action when our best friends got married in 2018. They could not have recommended YH&M highly enough. Now that we’re married, we would confidently recommend them as well. My wife and I were very particular about what we were looking for out of our wedding officiant. Jane ticked all the boxes including some we didn’t realize we needed! She understood exactly what we had envisioned for our ceremony; and was full of good ideas and helpful advice during the planning process. Looking back now, we can’t imagine anyone else presiding over our wedding.Ray & Karmen
We are a same-sex couple and it was really important for us to have a supportive and open-minded officiant and we were not disappointed. The service was beautiful and the photographer and officiant were so helpful with the whole process, which made everything easy for us, allowing us to focus on getting married and having a wonderful time! We had an elopement style, destination wedding and orchestrating it from a different country wasn’t a problem at all! We are so happy we had them for our wedding ceremony and we highly recommend them! – Megan & SashaMegan & Sasha
- Everything was perfect and simple. The ceremony was exactly the way we wanted it. Eloping with Jane as our officiant was easy. Thank you!!Jen + Brenden
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
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
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
Marilyn did such a wonderful job with our ceremony! She understood exactly what we wanted. Highly recommend this company to anyone on the fence. It is worth it to give your ceremony that special and personal touch.Samantha & Damian
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
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
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
Great experience right from the start! I am so happy we went with this company. Our day was so intimate and special. Shawn is amazing at what he does and I am so happy we found him.Kiley & Alex
This was, by far, the best avenue we could’ve taken for our wedding! Erika was an exceptional officiant who kept in contact with us from day one, made sure everything we wanted was included in the ceremony, and even made it as minimalist as possible for my husband when it came to his speaking parts! Our wedding was a surprise, so no one knew it was happening, and Erika blended in with the crowd with ease and played her part perfectly, even with a few wondering stares! We are so, so, happy with Young Hip and Married, and would recommend them in a heartbeat to personalize your wedding and make it a truly special day!Eleni & Regan
- We had a 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
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
- 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
Our officiant, Beth, from Young Hip and Married was kind, patient, and flexible. Her communication with us was great and she made our ceremony script personal and heartfelt. We didn’t decide our elopement ceremony location until the evening before our elopement and she was so cool with it and never made us feel rushed or pressured. She was amazing and so was Young Hip and Married!
My husband and I are from Miami, FL so when we decided to elope in Whistler, Canada we knew we needed some guidance. Choosing Beth from Young Hip and Married as our officiant was one of the best decisions we made. She was patient with us and great at communicating throughout the entire process. She made our ceremony script loving and personal and she made our ceremony feel relaxed and special. The whole process was seamless from start to finish!Vanessa & Martin
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
To say our wedding was magical, would be an understatement. From the location, to the vows, to the atmosphere – everything was carefully considered and curated to our liking. We will forever be grateful to YH&M for organizing and creating a day to remember, or as we say, the best day of our lives!Shannon & Jarvis
We had an excellent experience with Young Hip & Married for our September 2020 wedding! Communication was seamless throughout the planning process, and the team took the time to ensure all of our questions were answered and needs were met. Our officiant, Lani, spent time getting to know us as a couple and wrote us the most beautiful ceremony we could have imagined. It was so perfectly us. She did a fabulous job officiating, and we received so many compliments about the ceremony and her specifically. I would highly recommend Young Hip & Married for anyone who wants a personalized and meaningful ceremony that will truly reflect who you are as a couple!Allison & Angelo
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
YH&M made planning a wedding easy! From the first email I sent, communication was quick and friendly. Marilyn was super easy to get along with and very adaptable for the kind of ceremony we were looking for. We can’t say enough about Erica as our photographer; she was absolutely perfect! Can’t wait to see the photos!Emily & Whitney
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
Using Jason from Young Hip and Married for our officiant was hands down the BEST decision we could have ever made! He was so accommodating, creative, and encouraging when it came to writing what we wanted for our ceremony. He really let us make it exactly what we wanted and executed it perfectly! He kept in contact with us regarding the ceremony and even just to check up on us – he even Facetimed with us while we were in Germany! He truly took the time to get to know us and on the big day, it was so relaxed because we already knew him so well. One of our groomsmen actually asked during our rehearsal if he was a friend of the family! Thank you Jason and YH&M for making our day the BEST DAY EVER!!Hayley & Brendan
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
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
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
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
Young Hip & Married brought so much ease to my big day! From start to finish they were professional, helpful and responsive. Shawn was an absolute pleasure to have officiate our wedding! He managed to swiftly juggle our ceremony with two toddlers pulling at each other, fighting for the attention. Worth every penny! Thanks again Young Hip and Married !! You guys rock!!Tarik & Kendra
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
So happy with our decision to choose Young Hip & Married! Jodi was so nice and did such a great job and received many compliments from our family and guests about how much they thought so too! This was just what we needed – personable, good with us and managing our wedding party, and making our vows and ceremony suited just to us. Thank you!Jen & Chris
ABSOLUTE MUST! Jef was absolutely amazing!! My husband and I clicked with him right away! He had some great, creative ideas for us and made our ceremony script very personal and made our guests laugh (which is exactly what Tobi and I wanted). He was professional and the quality of service was outstanding! They were extremely accommodating as we had to reschedule our rehearsal dinner and Jef moved around his schedule to meet our needs. HIGHLY RECOMMEND them!! <3Rhiannon & Tobi
I have nothing but good things to say about Young Hip & Married. These guys took care of everything and made us feel totally at ease. Our officiant, Peter La Grand, was also the best. Thank you again YHM!! You guys rule.Jeff & Olga
Thank you so much to Jane at Young Hip & Married, the experience from start to finish was great. Jane shared ideas, resources and her script with us. I felt like we were able to co-create the tone, atmosphere and language that mattered to us as we made our promises. Most of our communication happened via email and Google docs which worked really well for us. Jane was really flexible and responsive to questions and changes. Most important to us was that Jane has a really lovely presence and led us and our family & friends through the ceremony in a warm, thoughtful, and beautiful way. The ceremony was exactly what we hoped it would be. Thank you so much Jane!Christie & Matt
Jane was an amazing officiant. Emotions were high on my wedding and the way my husband and I cope is with comedy. Jane was able to adapt to our chemistry and made us feel very comfortable. There was great communication prior to the ceremony as well.Jenny & Nathan
We had easy communication and a great wedding. Our officiant was excellent and our photographer took some beautiful photos. Excellent all around.Charlotte & Matthew
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
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 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
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
- 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
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 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
Our experience with Erika was perfect. She was very warm and personable at our first meeting and her calm, attentive demeanor put us at ease. She addressed all of our wishes, had us consider many important points, and made sure that our personal story would be integrated into the ceremony. She also suggested that we include our son, which we loved and did. It truly made it that much more meaningful for us all.
On the day of the ceremony she saw us through it like a pro, even though she is terrified of birds! The only reason that we mention it is that we had an outdoor ceremony and right in the middle of it a big bird swooped down right at us! Again, Erica handled it like a pro and didn’t miss a beat. She had our guests entertained and crying with joy and laughter all at the same time. Again, she was perfect.
Overall, our experience was fantastic and our big day was something we will cherish for the rest of our lives. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Erika to any prospective couple. She is professional, calm and executed the ceremony flawlessly.Rosina & Chris
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
- Beth was unbelievably amazing! She made the process of seamless, exciting, and personable. HIGHLY recommended her!Tiffany & Kiana
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
I cannot say enough good things about YH&M. Cory officiated our marriage licence ceremony and he was absolutely WONDERFUL. He took all of the personal aspects of our story and incorporated it into the ceremony in a way that we would never have been able to do. We felt like we were hearing our own story for the first time! Our guests also commented on how beautifully personal it was. Some even teared up. So I can’t thank YH&M enough for what they did; they made our night that much more special. And big shout out to Cory for rocking a Hawaiian shirt! It was totally appropriate given we were signing the papers in a Tiki bar.
Love you guys!Meghan & Doug
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
We had a small ceremony in Vancouver, and had so many people comment on how great Shawn was as our officiant! Highly recommended.Philip Ware
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
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
Wedding made simple! Requests accommodated, professional and personable!Dan & Andrea
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
Randy Hamm was our wedding officiant in August of 2015. At the time of this writing, we have just celebrated our two year wedding anniversary and have had the full opportunity to reflect not only on our own thoughts about our wedding but also those shared by our family and friends who were in attendance.
Randy’s wonderfully kind and open nature was apparent right from the first moment we met him while sharing a coffee at Starbucks (which we now refer to as “Weddin’ Starbucks”) to get to know each other. His warmth and genuine personality was immediate and fit exactly with the type of person we were both hoping would be able to marry us. We found we all shared a sense of humour which was not only helpful in combatting many of the external pressures involved with the planning the various aspects of our wedding, but also any anxiety experienced during the ceremony itself.
We wanted somebody who embodied all the qualities of our relationship, and we found all of that and more in Randy. Right from the start, Randy spent much time getting to know us and what was important to us. As we developed our vows he provided valued guidance by asking thought provoking questions to help put into perfect words the love we both felt and continue to feel for one another. He made himself available anytime in case either of us had questions or needed guidance. But he also identified the cases where we were ok to walk the path on our own. He offers counselling for new couples and spent time using his skills in this area to ask thought provoking questions about us and our relationship in order to get the best picture of us as a whole.
Randy spent a lot of time with us discussing the type of ceremony we wanted. When we were unsure or didn’t have any specific ideas about various aspects of our ceremony, he provided a plethora of creative suggestions that he felt would fit our desired ambiance and atmosphere. From those, we chose our favourites and came up with what we felt was a beautiful and meaningful ceremony.
Even though we are not religious, we had some family attending our wedding who was very much so and had certain expectations. Not wishing any religious content within our wedding, we were concerned that it would be a delicate balancing act between our own desires for our wedding and the desires of others. When we brought this concern to his attention he immediately offered to have a reassuring chat with any of our family members to help alleviate any worries. In the end, Randy quashed any such concerns with epic skill and calm assurance! He performed a ceremony that absolutely encapsulated all the key focus points of love, commitment, and respect that are held dear by many religions. He managed this by using terminology and vocabulary that is common within the church, but he used it in a context that would appeal to those who are not religious. Even though we had Randy marry us as a wedding officiant, his being an ordained minister calmed any concerns that the more religious people in our family may have had.
The ceremony itself was beautiful and Randy encouraged us both to soak in every moment of the occasion and cherish each one. Many people say that their weddings flash by in a blur and often the majority of it goes unremembered. But now, two years later, the memories we both have are clear and happy ones. A calm celebration of love on the sea as we joined our lives together on a yacht at sunset. Indeed, when we found a party boat in our vicinity through portions of the ceremony, Randy used his excellent humour to lighten the situation and help people to laugh and enjoy the distraction. He has a true love of life which makes itself clear in every situation.
After our ceremony, while we were visiting with our guests and generally basking in the glow of the evening, Randy took a wonderful initiative to take the still running portable audio recorder we had set up to record the ceremony and asked each of our guests to say a few words so that we would have these as everlasting memories. We were so touched that even though his portion of the evening had completed and he was invited to relax and enjoy along with everyone else he went above and beyond his role to do everything he possibly could to help make our wedding evening truly special for us.
So, with all this said, we wish to express our everlasting gratitude to Randy for being absolutely amazing. Of all the people we worked with to plan our wedding (of which there were many!), he was without a doubt the best. Indeed, for many months after our wedding, all our guests commented just how great Randy was. We would absolutely and wholeheartedly recommend Randy to any couple planning a wedding! His skill in determining and creating the exact atmosphere desired is beyond what anyone could hope for. As we continue to move forward in our lives together, we will always have Randy at the forefront of our thoughts symbolizing our commitment and everlasting love for one another. Thank-you Randy!!Gail & Shawn
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
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
Excellent customer service! Provided us with insight to help us problem solve for a covid wedding, great introductions, professional attitude and very smooth flowing and flexible ceremony. They offer a vow course which helped us make our vows special and kept us on track.Katelyn & Stephen
- 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
- 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
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
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
From our initial point of contact right through to our wedding day, everything went so smoothly. My partner and I weren’t sure what exactly we wanted our wedding ceremony to be like, but Terry helped us create a ceremony that was a true reflection of who we are as a couple. Terry was super accommodating, personable, helpful and so much fun to work with. We felt like he really got to know us and our wedding ceremony was personal, unique, and completely captured our values and personalities. It was better than we could have even imagined and was definitely the highlight of our day!Natasha and George
We are so happy with our officiant, Marilyn! She made our intimate wedding very personal and engaging for us and our guests. Her wisdom and experience definitely was appreciated during the lead up to our wedding day. She made everything crystal clear for us and got to know us very well, so by the time of the wedding we felt like she was a dear friend! Thank you for making our ceremony extra amazing!Minnie & Matthew
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
Erika and the team at Young Hip & Married were excellent. Highly recommended.Jeremy Clark
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
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
Taylor and I couldn’t have chosen a better company for our elopement! We initially had the pleasure to work with Marilyn, but due to unforeseen construction at Lynn Valley we changed our location to the Fraser Valley. Unfortunately we could no longer work with Marilyn. YH&M accommodated us in a few hours with Gerry who works in that region. Gerry is down to earth and was a pleasure to work with. His words were incredibly heartfelt at our intimate ceremony. Thank you to the YH&M team for making our day so special and memorable!Urminder & Taylor
YH&M was on my wish list for almost a decade. I had witnessed an elopement in 2009 with Shawn Miller as the officiant and was blown away. Fast forward to 2018 and it’s finally my turn. Even after a decade of growth YH&M stood with the same morals and beliefs on marriage and weddings. We had the pleasure of having Beth be our officiant and she couldn’t have been more perfect. She understood who we were and where we came from after just one conversation. Beth was incredible to be around and was like one of the guests. The ceremony was perfect. Thank you YH&M for connecting us with Beth.Karly Cox
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
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 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
We could not have asked for more for our elopement. Even with very short notice, Lani was able to accommodate us and adjust for a date change 1 week out! Even though it was an elopement, Lani was able to provide a personal touch that made us feel extra special. At the end of the day having Lani as our Officiant felt like it was meant to be.
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
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
Thanks so much! I found your service to be exactly what we were looking for and you guys really helped us make that day perfect. I can’t say enough great stuff about YH&M to all our friends and family. If we hear of anyone getting married we will gladly share our story and recommend your services. Everything about that day was perfect and you guys really helped us put that together. Thanks again so much.Christopher & Tracei
We are completely thrilled with our experience with Young Hip & Married. From the first email from Jackie-Deane with a cute personalized video and all the details we needed, to a fun photo shoot in a park near our venue with Amber, to an amazing ceremony written and performed by Beth. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect, stress free day. We were very impressed with Beth. She really took time to get to know us. We started by filling out an online form with our ceremony preferences. Beth also took time to have a coffee with us in person to learn more about how we met and our relationship. She provided us with a script for the ceremony in advance. It really captured our journey together, and we both shed tears reading it. On the big day, Beth’s delivery of our ceremony was perfect!! She told the story of us in such a way that there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. I would absolutely recommend Beth to anyone looking for a simple stress free ceremony. Amber was great! She asked us in advance if we had any specific preferences for our photos and even suggested meeting at a park near our venue before the ceremony for 30 minutes; since we were married in late November, she wanted to make sure we could take advantage of the last of the daylight. At the ceremony, Amber seemed to blend into the decor. We forgot she was there and she got all the shots that we wanted of our ceremony and guests.Clayton & Guil Bart
- We used Young Hip and Married for our wedding and they provided us with Peter La Grand as our officiant. Not only was he super personable and made everything easy, he also provided a lot of insight before the wedding. He sent me a package of examples of wordings to be used for the wedding and asked for our input of what type of ceremony we wanted. I didn’t even know there were so many options so, it was a great help! Overall, great experience and would recommend Peter for any wedding!Kelly & Kramer
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
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
- We just loved our wedding day!!!! I never thought that it would be so emotional and fun at the same time!!! Thank you very much again for everything that you have done and I will definitely not hesitate to recommend you to anybody I know who wishes to get married!!France & Torsten
We booked the Helicopter Elopement Package through Young Hip & Married 8 months prior to our wedding day. Kadee was our wedding officiant and reached out to us instantly. Kadee was everything we wanted. Kadee really took the time to get to know myself and my husband and by doing that she wrote us the perfect vows. I remember the first time I read the vows I was blown away; they were perfect and we couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you Kadee for getting to know us; it made our special day that much more special. Thank you Young Hip & Married for making our Helicopter Elopement one of the best days of our lives! It was absolutely perfect. Your staff are amazing and we couldn’t have asked for better people to be a part of our special day.Alaysha & Darren
- 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
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
Erika at Young Hip and Married went above and beyond to help make our day magical! She got to know us, captured our story and gave our guests a ceremony to remember! Thank you, Erika 🙂Kirsten & Brian
We reached out to Young Hip & Married because they had a wonderful irreverent and casual attitude. They were fantastic throughout – communicative, clear and accommodating. We booked the elopement package, with Jane as our officiant and Emily as our photographer, and both were professional and lovely.Cecily Lo
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
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
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
Was a fantastic pleasure working with everyone to make our day great! Couldn’t of asked for better! 10 out of 10Justin & Olivia
Thanks again for making our day so special, everything turned out even better than we could have imagined 🙂 I will definitely recommend Jason and Young Hip & Married. They were absolutely awesome to deal with.Les & Joel
They have an amazing team. Made our intimate wedding very special and stress free. Great price too 🙂Sarah & Zachary
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 was amazing! We are so happy we chose him. Everybody liked him and our ceremony went exactly as I imagined.S Saniee
We just wanted to say thank you again! Kristen made our ceremony perfect.Brittany and Thomas
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
Erika was awesome 😊 easy going and made everything very comfortable 👌🏼Nikki & Dennis
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
Absolutely fantastic! I had no idea the ceremony could be so fun! Brian really got to know us and made the ceremony perfect. Our guests thought he was an old friend and absolutely loved it. As did we. Thank you SO MUCH!!Lisa & Jaime
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
Thank you Shawn for making our day extra special. The process was seamless, classy, and laid back. Exactly what we wanted. Thank you!Christy & Brian
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
Our officiant, Shawn, was so supportive and inspiring leading up to and during our elopement! He made our ceremony so fun and easy going! Until today all of our guests keep commenting on how much they enjoyed Shawn’s words and the energy he brought into our special day! Thank you so much again!!! My husband and I would highly recommend this organization to anyone getting married! You won’t regret it 🙂Daniella & Mark
We feel very lucky to have had the one and only Shawn Miller marry us! Oh and did we mention award winner!
We eloped from Australia and we found YH&M on Google, before watching Shawn and Erica’s early vlogs about the business and marriage. There was one helicopter elopement they both did by a stream, the words Shawn said, made the ceremony unique and moving in a way we have never seen before.
Needless to say, we were desperate to book YH&M, both Shawn and his beautiful wife for our elopement. We were so lucky to get them both.
Our elopement was at sunrise on a very cold, windy and rainy Saturday morning in late October. The day was perfect, Shawn’s words were relevant and real to us, even without having ever spoken with him in person. We were both overwhelmed by how he speaks from his heart. Even our one guest and witness, Tim from Landsea Tours & Adventures, commented on how beautiful the ceremony was.
I could write for hours about our time with YH&M, but I would just say, experience it for yourself.
And if you are on the fence about eloping, and want something very personal and intimate, you couldn’t find a better vendor.
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
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
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
Using Young Hip & Married was one of the best choices we made in our wedding planning process. Our officiant, Jane, was easy to work with and made us feel excited and comfortable. The ceremony was totally “us” and we received many comments and compliments about how engaging our ceremony was and how she made everyone feel at ease. If you are debating about using them for your wedding, don’t! Their services are totally worth it! Thanks Jane!Chelsea & Ryan
Shawn from Young, Hip, and Married was the officiant for our wedding last October (2016). Communication leading up to the wedding was prompt, the script he produced was fantastic and wonderfully tailored to us, and he made sure that everything went incredibly smoothly. YHM are paragons of professionalism, right down to the wedding rehearsal (which I highly recommend you take advantage of). I have literally no complaints about them and, were I to do it all over again, I’d still go with YHM. They’re not cheap, but you absolutely get what you pay for.Geoff & Kat Fisher
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
We had an amazing experience with Young Hip & Married and cannot recommend them enough. Shawn was very communicative and made everything stress free. He gave us tips on how to write our own vows and a step by step guide of what to expect on the day. Shawn is absolutely terrific! He made our ceremony absolutely perfect and we can’t thank him enough; especially for calming us with the deep breaths and the beautiful words he spoke at our ceremony. All our guests were ranting and raving about how incredible our officiant was and if they were to get married that’s who they would want officiating it.Chelsea & Kyle
Our elopement was fantastic – I would not have changed a thing!Rebecca & Christopher
Jodi was an absolute delight!!! The best of the best!!! Don’t hesitate, JUST BOOK!!!Terry Clapp
We had an issue with our original officiant not receiving our deposit and subsequently being booked. Young Hip & Married were able to book us in with relatively little notice and Lani our officiant was awesome. She met with both of us to get both our stories and viewpoints and customized our ceremony to fit exactly what we were looking for. Even though they were more expensive – Couldn’t recommend them more!Kelsey & Allan
- 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 had a very lovely experience with Young Hip & Married. They are very organized and provides great customer service. We chose Kadee as our officiant and we love her energy and great smile! Having a wedding during COVID was surely not easy but Kadee made sure that we feel comfortable and stay informed. The speech she made for us was very sweet and made the whole experience so much better than expected!May & Kevin
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 Wilkinson
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 had a simple wedding that became very special, thanks to Young Hip & Married. They were exactly what we were looking for; they made everything easy and we couldn’t have been happier with the day. Jane was perfect; our friends and family were very impressed with the ceremony and her personal touch. Very much looking forward to seeing our pictures!!Tiffany & Tim
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 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
- 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
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
We had met with other officiants before meeting Jane from YH &M. We found the previous ones to be quite sterile and serious, but Jane was a breath of fresh air.
We wanted to keep our afternoon restaurant wedding light hearted but very genuine. Jane never pushed anything on us that felt unnatural or corny. She was laid back but still professional which made her easy to talk to. She wrote an amazing ceremony that our guests really loved and was so personal to us.
We mentioned our favorite movies and she went and researched readings and quotes to include in the ceremony without us even asking for them, and our ceremony was so much better than we thought it could be! We allocated more of our budget to the officiant than to other details and it was definitely worth it! our ceremony was great and set the tone for the whole wedding.Kevin & Tara
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
Erika was incredible, welcoming and attentive to our needs. She really rounded out our ceremony well! Everyone loved her!!Jade & Fred
- 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
The PERFECT day… thanks to Kadee! Kadee was absolutely amazing in every way and is so talented in what she does! After getting to know us over a Skype call and talking with a few of our friends, she created the perfect ceremony that required basically no changes. She helped us so much with our vows; she was so encouraging and made the whole experience a very positive one. Everyone at the wedding said the ceremony was one of the very best parts and was very ‘us’ which is what was so important to us. The day of the wedding, she was so good at her delivery of the ceremony and tailored her delivery to the crowd very nicely. She was professional through the whole experience, while all the while being authentic and incredibly flexible. I HIGHLY recommend Kadee to anyone looking for an exceptional and very memorable experience. THANK YOU Kadee!Brit & Geoff
- 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
Just one word to describe how Shawn Miller officiated our wedding – AWESOME!!! We recommend Young Hip & Married to everybody who wants to have their wedding ceremony in good hands.Gordon & Tysa Thomson
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
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 were very happy with Kadee from Young, Hip & Married. She contacted us early for a skype call, and gave us a clear picture of how she approached the ceremony, and made it clear early on that she was flexible and accommodating of what we wanted. The forms from Young, Hip & Married were helpful in getting us to review what we wanted for our ceremony speech, and vows. Kadee put together a very nice ceremony for us to review a few weeks before our wedding, and was responsive to our feedback and suggestions. She was friendly and was happy to deal with a last minute change we made 2 days before for our ceremony. It was a pleasure working with Kadee and we would definitely recommend Kadee and the Young, Hip & Married team.Aaron & Carolyn
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
All of our interactions with Young Hip & Married were very pleasant! Firstly, they were able to help us arrange our small marriage with just a few weeks notice, and secondly made everything we needed to do very clear in advance despite not actually meeting with our officiant (Shawn) until the day of our marriage due to the expedited arrangements we had made. We were provided with a sample of how the ceremony would go as well as opportunities to tailor things here and there to our wishes. Not being sure of what exactly was involved in terms of formalities and administrative things surrounding getting married, it was so very helpful to have all of the guidance that was provided. Shawn’s wife Erica was our photographer, and they both arrived precisely when they said they would! Right away they were very friendly and comforting to have with us. While our ceremony was small, it went exactly as we had hoped it would go. Despite having only spoken over the phone and by email, Shawn had prepared some words for the day that seemed to suit us perfectly. Erica’s photography was great! We love the photos that she took of us and our guests. She did a great job at mixing the scenery into the shots. Perfect for our forested garden location! All of our guests have complemented the ceremony itself and appreciated the friendliness they presented. Thank you both, and thanks also to Tara for helping to set things up for us!Sam
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
- 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
Jane was absolutely wonderful; she was the perfect person to marry my wife and I. She catered the ceremony to our exact desire and did a very good job on our big day. We would highly recommend her!Candice & Steve
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
On time, very professional and very accommodating to our situation. Made the day great!Melanie & Bryan
This post is long over due, but here it is! I want to give a huge shout out to Erika, our officiant who went above and beyond to make my wedding happen. We were originally meant to get married on March 21, 2020 but that was the week everything was shutting down due to Covid-19. We had to cancel our big events that very week and we were unsure as to whether we could even continue with our smaller events. It was definitely stressful. So we called Erika to ask her if she was available earlier and she said she was. On March 16 (5 days earlier), Erika came to our house and made our ceremony happen. There were only 5 of us (me, my husband, Erika, her mom and friend as two witnesses) in our living room. Now it’s 5 months later and I am so happy that we made the decision that we did. I want to thank Erika for being so professional and so amazing. I would recommend Young Hip & Married and especially Erika!! Thank you again for making one of the most important days so special.Sabina & Joe
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
- Katie & James
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
Erika, thanks so much for everything! You guys made the whole experience exactly as relaxed and beautiful as we hoped it would be.Dannie & Lyle
We had 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
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 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 so much Erika (& the rest of the YHM team)!! Appreciate your flexibility and patience especially in this crazy time. Unreal service!! Again, from the bottom of our hearts…thank you!!! Appreciate it all.Laurenz & Amanda
Kadee was exactly what we needed for our unique ceremony. She seamlessly incorporated all of the elements that we wanted, and was open and caring. I would absolutely recommend her in particular but also the Young Hip & Married team in general!Andrea & Dodd
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
It was a wonderful experience! They were professional and eager to please! Amazing pictures and memories! Highly recommend!David & AJ
Young Hip & Married were amazing! They were extremely communicative and made the whole process very simple (even when COVID-19 made things uncertain). We chose the Elopement + Photography package and had so many amazing officiants and photographers to choose from. We chose Beth Carlson-Malena for our officiant and she was fantastic! She wrote a beautiful and individualized ceremony script and kept us calm, cool, and collected in the moment. She also looked after the pre and post paperwork efficiently. We chose Emily Nicole for our photographer and she captured the ceremony beautifully. We had an hour photography session with her after the ceremony and had so much fun – which is a big deal for 2 awkward and camera shy people! The photos are amazing and we will cherish them for years to come. We’re so thankful to have had Emily and Beth a part of our special day and we can’t say enough good things about Young Hip & Married! Thank you!!Caileen & Valentina
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
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
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
Jonathan was an amazing officiant. We had a beautiful ceremony at Berkeley Church and Jonathan made our ceremony personalized and with some flare. Thank you Young Hip and Married for helping to create the perfect wedding for us.Sarah & Michael
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 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
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
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
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
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
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
Courtney was an amazing officiant! She made the whole process stress free, and created a ceremony to suit us. Courtney got to know us as individuals and as a couple through deep conversations that never felt forced or awkward. She guided us through scripture choices and music that matched us and our individual faith journeys, prayed for our worries and apprehensions, and beautifully incorporated those tiny details of our story into our ceremony to make it uniquely ours. The rehearsal went so smoothly and Courtney handled every unexpected bump in the road so that our day would be perfect. If you want an officiant who will go above and beyond, I can’t recommend her enough!!Janelle & Moses
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
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
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
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
Jane was super easy to work with from start to finish. She made the entire experience an easy one, and was super organized and stellar on the day of our wedding. Highly recommend!June & Bryan
Kadee was everything a couple wants in an officiant. She was organized, warm, receptive, flexible, punctual and professional at every turn. Our wedding ceremony went smoothly and exactly as we wished. We would highly recommend Kadee to other couples looking for a wedding officiant.Stephen & Elizabeth
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
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
We were so happy with Jon from Young Hip & Married, as soon as we sat down with him we knew he was going to be our officiant.
He made the ceremony so personable; he asked our closest friends and family to give words that best describe us – it was so nice hearing these words from the most important people to us. He was a huge highlight of our day and made our ceremony so magical; we’ll always remember him and these special moments!
Thank YOU Jon, we adore you!!Dee & Bear
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 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
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
Cory Dueck was absolutely amazing! Nothing was a hassle for this guy; he made us both feel comfortable & at ease from our first meeting. No request was too much for Cory; he embraced our ideas & he gave any direction if required. He even dressed swankily for the occasion! On the day, all of our guests just loved him & endeared him into their hearts 💕 Cory made our day even more memorable & his presence was contagious!Gabby Star
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
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
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!
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
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
My partner and I were married in a North Vancouver forest by Shawn and Erica was our photographer. We were looking for a very personal, private and intimate ceremony and that is exactly what we got. Shawn lead us through a beautiful ceremony and gave us some guidance before the ceremony that really helped my husband and I lock into each other and reason we were there together. Shawn has a way of guiding the ceremony, while stepping back enough for us to feel like we were there alone. This made it easy to be our authentic selves in that moment, there was no show. This naturally led to a flood of emotion for both of us, as we felt the weight of our love, the significance of our bond, and the deep appreciation and gratitude that we have for each other.
Erica did a wonderful job of capturing the moment with beautiful and candid photographs of the ceremony and the hour following. The pictures are great!
In addition to the wedding day, they were both very helpful prior to the wedding, helping when we asked for guidance (e.g., alternative ceremony locations for rainy day and where/how to get our marriage license). They always answered the phone when I called with a question. We really feel that they were there for us before and during the wedding.
If you are considering a wedding officiant and/photographer we highly recommend Shawn and Erica. I cannot imagine a better couple to have there supporting a bride and groom on your wedding day. We are so grateful that Shawn and Erica were a part of this significant and special day.
Ben and I worked with Kadee as our officiant and Emily as our photographer. Both women were fabulous to work with! They were extremely professional and communicated regularly leading up to our big day. We had chosen Golden Ears park as our location, and unfortunately the gates were closed for an unknown reason when we arrived. Both Kadee and Emily were quick to come up with solutions and were so very flexible to make sure we had an outstanding day even though it wasn’t in the location we had picked. Loved loved loved this experience and would recommend to anyone!Miranda & Ben
The Young Hip and Married team is fantastic. They are easy to communicate with and quick to respond. We were paired with Erika and she did an amazing job. She took the time to get to know us and she was open to all our suggestions. We had an small ceremony with family and close friends. Erika fit in perfectly and made our ceremony feel very personal and very us. Can’t recommend Erika and the Young Hip Married team enough.Lexie & Mick
I would just like to say how amazing Mark was on Friday at the wedding for S&T. He was absolutely hilarious in such a tasteful way. All the guests thoroughly enjoying his service. S&T had only great things to say about him.Christina, Lead Planner, Stealing Cinderella Planning & Events
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
My wife and I decided to elope to coincide with a planned trip to Vancouver Island. I reached out to Young Hip & Married who were happy to help us secure an officiant and a photographer that fit into our tight schedule. From start to finish they were friendly, informative, and offered exactly the value and service we needed. Thank you Rebecca & Chris-Ann, you helped make a special day be perfect. I’m pretty sure they even managed to control the weather for us!Ryan & Angela
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
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
We used Young Hip and Married for our wedding ceremony and had the extraordinary pleasure of working with Shawn. The highest compliment I can pay Shawn is that after the ceremony, we had many friends come up to us and ask how long we had known him. We met with him once and worked online with him for the ceremony. What Shawn produced was an amazing and personal ceremony that me and my wife will never forget. Throughout the ceremony, there were tears and laughter. What Shawn had written for us was intimate, profound and perfectly us. It was my favourite part of the day and we have Shawn to thank for that. I would not hesitate to recommend Shawn and Young Hip and Married to anyone that will listen. They are extremely professional and will work with you to have a ceremony that people won’t forget.
Young Hip & Married made our experience stress free. They were super helpful with any questions we had and I can’t thank them enough for helping us with our wedding.Laura & Derek
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
My wife, Teresa, and I are incredibly happy with our experience with Young Hip & Married. Everything was so well coordinated and absolutely painless. Rebecca helped connect us to Jane, our officiant, and Clint, our photographer, after letting us describe the kind of ceremony we wanted. Jane officiated beautifully, adding wonderful and intimate touches to our vows. Clint managed to capture so much of our essence as a couple. His beautiful shots will be cherished forever by us. We cannot recommend this company enough. They have a human approach to their business and made us feel special and fully part of the entire process. Thank you so much for everything 🙂Michel & Teresa
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
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
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
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.

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
- 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
Young Hip and Married is an amazing service. Their ceremonies are completely 100% customizable, Shawn is an amazing officiant. He pinned me and my husband within 10 min, and we couldn’t have been happier with the service. We were even his first beer blending couple! How exciting! (It was a blast). Thank you so much for helping to make our day perfect!Emily & Luke

Beth was amazing. She spent time to get to know the bride and groom through communication with our wedding party and made the wedding feel very intimate and personal. I would definitely recommend Young Hip & Married to any couple looking for an officiant.Evan & Sydney
If you don’t choose Rhona as your wedding officiant then you may as well not get married 😊 We both met Rhona for the first time as we both walked down the aisle. We couldn’t be happier in the officiant that we chose with her. Her personal demeanour, and what she wrote in her profile: “We honor all people: all races, all creeds, all political ideologies, all abilities, all ages, all expressions of gender, sexuality and who we love.” Were the reasons why we chose her to wed us as we have a son who is gay and that is important to us. Love is love is love ! ❤️ Thank you Rhona for being an integral part of our special day. We couldn’t be happier ! We both highly recommend Rhona as an officiant in making your special day come to life.
Thanks again Rhona and Clint! You were both exactly what we were looking for in making our day a special one.Dave & Nicole
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
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
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
Shawn did an amazing job with our ceremony! During the rehearsal he was knowledgable about the ceremony space, and left no details to chance. Everyone I talked to at our wedding said the ceremony represented us perfectly! Overall a great experience!!!M S
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
Positive and warm people who will tailor your wedding day to however you want. Shawn and Erica were so great in making us feel comfortable, excited and special on our wedding day.Lucy & Morgan
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
We had such an amazing experience with Young Hip and Married. We had Shawn as our Officiant, and Erica as our photographer, they both made our elopement so comfortable and easy. We were able to enjoy every moment of our special day and we can’t thank them enough. We highly reccomend Young Hip and married; our day was perfect! Thank you Shawn and Erica!Pam & Rich
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
We went with the elopement package because we were having a small, immediate, family-only wedding. YH&M matched us with Kadee Smedley since we requested someone familiar with Queen Elizabeth Park, and Kadee had done many weddings there. To my horror, as we were about to start the ceremony, Kadee reminds me about the marriage license and I realize we didn’t get one. I’m grateful to Kadee and my husband for talking me through a near-meltdown. She remained so calm and patient with us and reassured us this happens more often than you’d think, and suggested we go through with the ceremony, pick up a marriage license (she even Googled a place for us!), and meet up again to do the paperwork. Kadee had such a positive attitude, and she was so kind and flexible with our big goof-up. I’m so glad she was a part of our big day; she really went above and beyond for these two lovebirds!Elizabeth & Joel
We used Young, Hip and Married for our officiant service. Erika was amazing and really took time to make the ceremony very personalized. She had multiple conversations with us to get to know us individually and as a couple. She also reached out to friends and family to get different perspectives. The whole team made the process very comfortable. I would absolutely recommend using them.Colton & Cassandra
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
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 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
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
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
My husband and I cannot thank Jane Halton enough for choosing to be our officiant for our special day! Jane was so sweet, calm and relaxed which eased both of our nerves combined. We felt well taken care of and even though our ceremony was short and sweet, Jane made us feel as though we were the only two on the planet for those 10 minutes💞 Thank you Jane for making our special day so memorable!!Niki & Steve
We couldn’t have been happier with Young hip and Married as our officiants! Shawn Miller made our day extra special, our ceremony was light, beautiful and filled with love. Our families were especially impressed with Shawn and how he made everyone feel like this day was as special to him as it was to us.
Thank you for EVERYTHING Shawn. We have already been recommending you to our friends for their future ceremonies. 🙂Angela + Martin
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
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
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
We could not be happier with Young Hip & Married. Our officiant was Mark and he was absolutely fantastic! We researched quite a few officiants and had a few telephone interviews before we found Mark. He instantly made us feel comfortable and at ease and we felt that he just “got” us. He was extremely professional and took the time to outline his services and how he would be telling Our Story.
Closer to the date of the wedding, he met us for coffee and we left feeling SO amazing about our day because of him. Mark is funny, warm, welcoming and well spoken. He really got to know us as a couple and even sent out a questionnaire to some of our friends to make our ceremony a truly intimate and amazing moment. He was available for our rehearsal and stayed longer than he had to without complaint due to many late family members.
I can truly say the ceremony was the most beautiful part of our wedding and we truly have Mark to thank for that. We received so many compliments after the ceremony. If we get married again (hah!) we would choose Mark over and over. Just kidding – would HIGHLY recommend him though! Thanks so much for making our day magical and so so very intimate.Marla Pecchia
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
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
We have nothing but good things to say about Erika and the staff at YH&M! They were able to work with us and advise on the difficult procedures to do with COVID restrictions. When our original officiant with them had to drop out due to unforeseen circumstances, we were set up with a new and also great replacement immediately.
Erika and the YH&M team were great and helped us with the replanning of our wedding during the COVID pandemic. She tailored a wonderful ceremony for us, and ensured that we were able to have a safe wedding.Cierra & Matt
We’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
- We just wanted to share that we were very happy with the experience we had with Jodi Hartung. Organizing our elopement from Manitoba wasn’t always easy and she gave us some good ideas. Only meeting with Jodi a few minutes prior to the elopement ceremony, she made us feel very relaxed and comfortable 🙂 I certainly would recommend both Jodi and Yousif (our photographer)…they helped make our day memorable and were both very professional 🙂Ysabel & Ian
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
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
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
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
I wouldn’t change a thing! There’s not many brides lucky enough to say that their wedding was absolutely perfect!Kelly & Derek
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!
My husband and I had friends who where married a few years ago and the thing I most remembered about their wedding was the ceremony. Since usually the ceremony tends to be the most unmemorable thing about a wedding, and not what I wanted mine to be, I asked them who they used. Young Hip and Married was the answer. I’m so glad they shared with us where they found their officiant. When I first contacted Young Hip and Married myself, I received a quick response (which was amazing since inquiries to 6 other officiants/marriage commissioners went unanswered). Young Hip and Married suggested that we meet with one of their officiants, Jane Halton. Jane was the perfect fit for my husband and I. She was able to craft the most beautiful ceremony for us; something that was elegant, with a touch of humour, and not too mushy. It was perfect. How she managed to take a bunch of our ramblings during our interview and subsequent survey she sent us, and turn it into an elegant ceremony that fitted us perfectly was amazing. I’m so glad that we had Jane officiate our day. We would highly recommend her and Young Hip and Married to anyone.Samantha & Michael
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
My wife and I eloped at Stanley Park with Young Hip and Married. Our officiant and photographer, Kadee and Sarah, were amazing and very patient; we had some guests arrive late and they waited for everyone! The ceremony was very beautiful and to that point, Kadee wrote a very nice ceremony. Our photographer Sarah was excellent at giving us ideas and telling us what to do and how to pose! Would recommend YH&M to anyone looking to have an elopement!Quinn & Viridiana
I would like to thank the Young Hip & Married for making our big day a memorable one, and for your prompt reply on our request in so short notice. It was a pleasure to have acquired your services.Roberto & Ann
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
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
Truly had an expectational experience. Our officiant, Jane, was very patient and kind. Me and my fiancée were pretty nervous but Jane helped us calm down and enjoy the whole experience. Our photographer, Emily, is not only an experienced and talented person but also very friendly. I would strongly recommend YH&M to everyone. They made our big day very special and enjoyable.Manjot Kaur
We had Shawn Miller as our wedding officiant and it was the best decision we could of made for our wedding!! Shawn won us over with his refreshing positive outlook on marriage and after meeting with him, he had us even more excited for our wedding day (which we didn’t think was possible). From beginning to end, Shawn had us covered and left us feeling relaxed and eager for our day. He was extremely accommodating and created the perfect ceremony catered to us. Throughout the evening we had so many compliments about our ceremony.Weeks after the wedding, we are still receiving so many compliments on how much they enjoyed the ceremony and how amazing Shawn was. Thank you to Young Hip and Married for making our day even more perfect. Thank you Shawn for everything!!!Chelsea Brittany
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
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
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
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
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
Thank you so much for the beautiful day Kristen. Brendan and I both could not have been happier with the way everything went. My mom literally won’t stop talking about how nice you were and how you were like a part of the family… Can not thank you enough!Brendan & Nadine
There’s something to be said about the fact that we had picked out the officiant we wanted before my husband and I had even gotten engaged – and we were 110% right! Realtalk: Shawn & Erika were amazing and phenomenal. They have an amazing energy, are attentive to details to ensure your day goes according to your vision, are prompt in their communication, are caring individuals, super chill, hilarious, flexible and professional. They took all the stress out of a day that could’ve been highly stressful and helped us enjoy the moment and the start of a new journey. Tara (aka Office Goddess) was prompt in communication and super helpful about guiding us through the logistics and process. It just doesn’t get any better than this super team! We highly recommend! In fact, down the road, my husband and I might just have to go through a divorce and then a re-marriage à la Elizabeth Taylor just so that we have an excuse to work with these two again… 🙂Tee
- We decided to elope last minute and Young Hip & Married made that happen! As with most weddings our plans changed and evolved and Young Hip & Married was on board! Easy to contact, easy to work with and lovely people we were happy to have in our wedding! Special thanks to Jodi for being so open to change.Erin & Shea
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
We had a small wedding ceremony in Calgary, and it was a great experience. Rich was our officiant and he was really helpful throughout the whole process. We had a phone conversation early on and he made sure I had all the information needed. The ceremony was quick and easy, and tailored to us. Young, Hip & Married was simple, affordable, and our officiant was easy-going, but still professional.Joanna LePrieur
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
Getting married during covid19 wasn’t easy in general. Having to plan & re-plan. But YH&M made it work. They were super flexible, reassuring, and easy to work with. Best experience! Our Officiant Eric was amazing and he put all our values first, and made our ceremony fun and memorable!Kendra & Krisztian
Tasso and I just wanted to thank you again for being apart of our wedding ceremony. We picked the perfect officiant. It was nice and relaxing and you spoke perfectly. Thanks again!!Tasso & Raj
Young Hip & Married were incredible. I asked my Fiancé want she wanted for Christmas this year and she said, to be married… And within 2 weeks we were married, due to the excellent and professional services that we received from Young Hip & Married. We contacted them, and in less then a day, they reached out and told us about their great & awesome services … My Fiancé and I considered our options and picked the elopement package… Short simple and yet very professional and one hell of a great job. It was as though Shawn had known Megan and I for decades… Shawn is a gifted speaker, and we recommend them with all our heart. Young Hip and Married are the way of the future. They crushed it. Thank you Young Hip & Married!Quinn & Meg
Beth officiated for me and my newly married wife this September 6 along with the best photographer, Erica. Can’t thank them enough for this wonderful experience and everything! It’s one of our best decisions to choose Young Hip &Married!
Simple but perfect! It was really so random that we chose Young Hip & Married, but when we saw Beth and her introduction, immediately we contacted her. In the beginning, we only used emails to keep in touch, but she responded so quickly and understood everything me and my wife wanted. Even when our photographer accidentally couldn’t make it, she found us Erica, the nicest and prettiest photographer in the world! We’re really grateful for everything Young Hip & Married has done for us, and we will definitely recommend them to our friends if they want to get married in Canada!Freya & Jasmine
We recently had the pleasure of being married by Shawn of Young Hip & Married. The entire process was amazing. Shawn helped us see that being involved in writing our vows would lead to a ceremony that was incredibly meaningful and unique. The goal of the ceremony was to create a very special feeling and to allow the attendees to really get to know us and our relationship.During the ceremony Shawn made us feel incredibly at ease. I was surprised by how many guests came up to us after that fact, commenting on how amazing our officiant was. For anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding , definitely go with Shawn from Young Hip and Married. They are truly the best!Sandra & Robert
Marilyn was 10/10 – highly recommend! From meeting and getting to know my husband and I, to the check in’s, helping with the vows and the personalized ceremony just for us, she was perfect in every way. Also a big thank you to Young Hip & Married for making the process so easy (especially during COVID)!!Kayleigh & Dustin
We didn’t know where to start when planning our small, backyard wedding. I Googled different options and was happy to see the range of packages offered by Young Hip & Married. We booked the elopement package with 90 minutes of photography and it was just enough. Our officiant was Jane and she was really collaborative and responsive when developing our ceremony. She was lovely to work with! And Erica Miller was our photographer. We are just thrilled with our pictures!! She was even able to get my camera-shy husband to look natural. All in all, it was a really great package that made all of the wedding planning way easier!Alicia Richards
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
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
Jane was super attentive, emailing back and forth to make sure the ceremony proceedings were what we wanted them to be. On the day of, she was calm (which made me calm!) and made sure we took time to enjoy the moment. Would highly recommend her and Young Hip & Married to anyone looking to have a small, but still great, wedding!Laura Collins
We had an idea of location and time but it just wasn’t working with the vendors they had available (or to have them travel to us was very expensive). Instead of giving up after a lot of email back and forth, they offered an alternative that worked perfectly! We were matched to an officiant and a photographer who made sure our wedding was exactly what we wanted! We were originally supposed to get married in April 2020, but had to postpone due to COVID. Throughout a very difficult time for a lot of vendors and couples, they remained professional and made sure we had options and eventually had our perfect wedding, exactly how we wanted it. The patience, quick response time, options available, and overall attitude towards weddings and marriage made the experience for us super easy and fun. I’ve recommended them to everyone I know who is getting married!Janey & Kyle
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
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
Rich – what an absolutely awesome officiant to work with – he was funny, bright and wasn’t put off when we sent him to the wrong spot on Scottsman’s hill! Rich is through Young Hip & Married, they were great to work with, have tons of options for officiants! They were in constant contact with us, making sure that the ceremony Rich did was exactly what we wanted.Lauren Cushing
Our officiant was Peter and he was so great!! We’re happy he was our officiant. Highly recommended!!Vicky & Henry
We had Beth as our officiant. She worked with us to include our son in the ceremony. It felt very personal and she met all our requests. I wanted to add little details into the ceremony and Beth fit all of them in perfectly.Melissa & Trevor
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
Great service, we had Beth as our wedding officiant and she is awesome! Highly recommend.Trisha & Dulguun
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 hired Young Hip and Married to officiate our ceremony after they were recommended to us by our wedding coordinator. We were a bit hesitant at first because they are a bit pricy, but after our initial interview we were sure we wanted to select them for our ceremony. It was obvious right away that they would do everything they could to customize the ceremony to be exactly how my wife and I wanted it.
From our initial interview right until the day of, they were professional and exciting, and took a lot of the edge off the process, helping us have a little fun during the stressful wedding planning phase. One particularly cute detail: Shawn, the CEO, who was also our officiant, prefers to send recorded videos as opposed to e-mails to his clients. We thought that was awesome! The only hiccup was caused by the officiant we initially chose dropping out about 3 months before the wedding for personal reasons. This was a wholly-unforeseen incident, not at all the fault of anyone at YHM. Even then, the company stepped in right away, and Shawn offered to officiate our wedding himself. He was one of our top picks, so we agreed. Despite the initial panic, the exchange went through relatively smoothly, so it all worked out in the end.
After that, everything went very smoothly. We went back and forth with Shawn and edited our ceremony until we were happy, no complaints from him whatsoever (and we can be quite picky!). We were able to run some ideas by him, and he helped us fit them into the ceremony smoothly. He also helped us write our vows (without showing them to either of us, of course). Organization-wise, Shawn worked directly with our wedding coordinator and DJ, and we did not have to worry about a thing on the day of.
We also found he had a calming presence, which was a huge help since we were both so nervous. He was there for our rehearsal too, and calmly taught us exactly what we needed to do, very good for us since neither me or my wife had done this kind of wedding before, not being originally from Canada. We also had the misfortune of getting rain RIGHT in the middle of our outdoor ceremony. Shawn was really put to the test then; he could have easily forced us indoors and ruined our carefully laid out plans, but he handled everything so well! He asked us what we wanted to do in a very subtle way, we doubt our guests even realized we were having a problem. We’re sure a less professional officiant might have botched it; we were really really glad to have him around then.
As for the ceremony itself, almost all of our guests remarked on how beautiful it was. Shawn was fantastic! Everything we could have hoped for. We highly recommend working Young Hip and Married for your wedding ceremony. If you want the ceremony YOU want, exactly the way you want it, and to not have to worry about any mistakes, or dealing with unforeseen mishaps, there is no one better!Razvan & Jenny
In the short time prior to our wedding when we first contacted Young, Hip & Married, they were quick to get back to us and put everything together. Shaun showed up on time and was able to breathe a little air into the situation and calm both me and my wife. The ceremony was great and most people’s favorite memory of the evening. Even though we had been married in Mexico a month prior, we wanted to do something special at our Vancouver reception and Shaun came through in spades!! Thanks again!Justin & Lolita
My husband and I had a very small ceremony (the Elopement Plus package) and Peter was our officiant. We were very happy with his easy going nature, and the way he made us feel relaxed and calm. His emails to us ahead of time were clear and concise, and he always made us feel that we could call the shots for how the day went. We planned our wedding in less than a month and Peter helped everything to go smoothly. We definitely recommend him!Lauren & James
We chose the elopement package for our wedding; it was perfect and fun. Thank you so much Shawn and Erica!Katie Zaloga
- 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 &
