Young Hip & Married Reviews
What a fabulous day! Thank you YH&M for making this experience a seamless one, and SO FUN! Choosing Jonathan was the best decision we made. Jonathan is a fabulous human, and our wedding ceremony wouldn’t have been more than perfection if it wasn’t for him. Jonathan brought a very special uniqueness to our wedding day, and our ceremony. He was able to cultivate an experience that was personal, fun and truly reflective of us. We went with the fully customized ceremony option, and I’m glad we did. Jonathan provided great ideas and touches, and worked with us to bring our vision to life. Thank you!!!Natasha & Hisham
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
Jane Halton was great! On time, energetic and very personable. I highly recommend her!!! Thank you Young Hip and Married!Dan Reynolds
Nothing but THE BEST! Shawn was our officiant, and made our day so smooth, comfortable and intimate. I wouldn’t change a thing. We got our video back last month, and the video really focused and used Shawn’s part as it was so unique and special. I highly recommend this company!Belle & Mike
We had Chris-Ann from Young Hip & Married as our officiant and we were thrilled! She was very organized, helpful and so hilarious in helping us with our wedding ceremony. Would for sure recommend.Cayley & Rob
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
I couldn’t be happier with the services we received. Our officiant was amazing and so thorough with us considering we were getting married out of province, and the initial reach out (I guess you could call that our coordinator/customer service rep) was phenomenal in getting us the perfect officiant. 100/10 would recommend this company to everyone I know who is getting married/eloping.Selina & Daniel
Our officiant Mark was a dream to work with. My husband and I come from two completely different backgrounds/cultures/faiths, and we wanted to craft our ceremony in such a way that it could encompass both of our traditions and values. Mark went through everything with us and made the process so easy. He was organized, helpful, and most of all very patient. The speech he crafted for us was so beautiful, and his personality was so warm and welcoming that our guests still can’t stop talking about our beautiful ceremony!Sherry and Jeffery
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
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
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
Our officiant Terry was lovely! Our wedding ceremony was in French and English, so we had to have a bilingual officiant, and Terry was just perfect for the job. He took the time to get to know us and personalised our ceremony in a beautiful way. Great experience 🙂Anonymous
Our 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
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
We had a wonderful experience with Young Hip & Married. Right from contacting them, booking the date till the actual ceremony, it was a smooth process. The team was very accommodating. Our officiant, Jordan Shaw, performed a beautiful ceremony to officiate our wedding on Mystic Beach. Such an amazing experience! We’ll cherish this moment forever.Kareena & Navpreet
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
We would highly recommend Young Hip & Married. Our friends booked with them and we did too. Lani was our wedding officiant and she did an amazing job. When we met her, we really liked her warm personality and she had a lot of ideas for the ceremony which helped make it more special. She was very organized during the wedding rehearsal which made everything go smoothly & we all had a lot of fun. Also, on the wedding day everyone was commenting how great she was. Thank you again Lani!!! : )Aiza & Hamed
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
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
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
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
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
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
Such an amazing company with amazing people. Everyone we met and worked with at YH&M was so positive, encouraging, and full of great energy. We received lots of compliments after our ceremony (officiated by Shawn).Kimberly Dioszeghy
Easy and they guided us step by step. Love Chris; made our ceremony special even during covid.Christine & Jason
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
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
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
On time, very professional and very accommodating to our situation. Made the day great!Melanie & Bryan
We loved working with Young Hip & Married. Denise was so amazing to work with from our first phone call. She listened to what we wanted and provided help along the way. She was very responsive and helpful every step of the way. She made our ceremony feel so personal and special. I can’t thank her enough for her beautiful words and our dream wedding ceremony. I am so incredibly thankful for her!Ally & Daniel
Erika was awesome 😊 easy going and made everything very comfortable 👌🏼Nikki & Dennis
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
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 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
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.
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
Probably the best officiants around. Revolutionizing the officiant experience and making it personal, emotional, fun, dynamic and an experience everyone can enjoy.Ivonne & Brent
Our 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
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
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
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
Great Experience! Young Hip and Married was a great wedding experience for us. We were given a detailed break down at a very affordable price. Anytime we had any questions leading up to the wedding we were immediately got back to with the answers. Our officiant Jane was prompt, friendly and very professional. Overall this company helped make our day special.Lloyd & Majd
We couldn’t be any happier with Young Hip and Married. Me and my husband got married September 17,2022. We met with Erika Enns prior to our wedding for a free consult. She was so sweet and friendly and asked all the right questions. We instantly knew we needed her for our officiant. She even came to our wedding rehearsal.
Our ceremony was absolutely perfect. She made it so personal, we got so many compliments on how beautiful the ceremony was. We are both so happy with Erika and so grateful for the service she provided us – thank you again, Erika! We would recommend Young Hip and Married to any couple looking for an officiant.Sylvia & Taran
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 could not have asked for anything more perfect! We worked with Jodi as our relationship coach, and then as our officiant for our beautiful, intimate ceremony at a lookout in Squamish (small hike required!). She was incredibly supportive throughout the process of working together as a couple through unexpected challenges, and replaning and rescheduling our wedding ceremony/celebrations. In the end we could not have asked for a more perfect way to formalize our union, with so very much to be grateful for, on Thanksgiving Monday with a ceremony officiated by Jodi completely bilingually (in Spanish and English), very much personalized to our story and our relationship, sharing such an important moment with our closest friends and family, surrounded by the beauty of the mountains and the ocean, decorated with brilliant sunshine and the colours of fall!Jennifer Baxter
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Shawn when planning our elopement this past summer and owe him a long overdue thank you! Shawn was incredibly personable and accommodating and we absolutely loved his laidback attitude and sense of adventure when telling him about our elopement plans, ‘Helicopter ride to a mountain top to profess your love, no big deal!’ He played a huge role in creating a fun and stress-free experience and we credit him for helping to make our day as memorable and enjoyable as it was. Thank you for everything!Amy
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
Thank you so much — you did a wonderful job as our officiant. We had family members telling us this was the best wedding they had ever attended, and everyone loved how you conducted the ceremony (us included!).Kevin & Yu-Ru
We used Young Hip and Married for our wedding and could not say enough about how amazing they were. We had a very unique request with a surprise ceremony and Peter La Grand was able to deliver on our vision (with very little input form us).Roger & Samantha
When I was first looking for an officiant, I had a lot of concerns. I’m a non-traditional bride and our wedding was so diverse that I was worried that I would have a super traditional and rigid officiant. My husband and I found YH&M through looking up online reviews and we were really drawn to the fact that we could customize the ceremony. They were so responsive once we filled in the information form. We got to meet our officiant before making any commitments as well.
Our officiant was Rhona and she was absolutely amazing!! Her energy matched my partner and I so well. She was so helpful and responsive when we emailed her with questions. Having her at our rehearsal made everything run so smoothly on the day. We asked her for a very sweet ceremony with some humour and she absolutely delivered! The ceremony was absolutely the highlight of the wedding. All of our friends and family thought she was great!
Lastly, the vow writing course was so helpful for organizing what we wanted to say to each other 🙂Shaira & De'voreaux
- 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
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
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
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.
We worked with officiant Jane Halton through YH&M and we’re so happy we did! From our first meeting with Jane, she was lovely to work with. She wrote a ceremony customized for us. When COVID hit and we had to postpone, she was flexible and supportive through a variety of revisions of the plan with frequently changing restrictions. Overall we couldn’t have been happier to have Jane officiate for us on our special day!It was a great experience from start to finish. Meeting Jane prior to the ceremony and sharing our backstory helped tailor the experience to who we are as a couple, while still keeping her signature presentation style. Jane was flexible and made sure we were comfortable during both the rehearsal and ceremony itself. Would definitely recommend to anyone considering their services.Sarah & Shaun
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
Young Hip & Married were efficient, friendly and would highly recommend. Jane was wonderful, extremely kind and personable. 10/10!Rona & Rich
Jordan Shaw was our officiant for our wedding and did an absolutely fantastic job! The communication and attention to detail made our day feel truly special!Ashton & Charley
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 chose YH&M after meeting with two other officiants. Cory was our officiant and he was awesome! He took the time to hear what we loved about each other and made sure we didn’t get a boring, run of the mill ceremony. My husband was very nervous about speaking in front of 80 people and Cory made him feel at ease. He helped us to create vows that were “us” and kept our guests laughing and tuned in to the ceremony. We are so happy with our choice and highly recommend YH&M! They made our ceremony something we can look back on with fond memories.Karesse
We had a small ceremony in Vancouver, and had so many people comment on how great Shawn was as our officiant! Highly recommended.Philip Ware
In the past few years, I’ve been to a lot of weddings. They’ve all been beautiful, but none of the ceremonies felt like something I would want to have for my wedding. Young Hip & Married gave us the most amazing officiant, Erika, who blew us away with the way she was able to really understand us and blow us away with our customized ceremony! I would absolutely recommend them to every couple who wants their unique love story to be incorporated into their marriage ceremony.Jennifer & Anthony
We were so fortunate to have Shalom marry us. Working with her and Young Hip & Married made eloping in another province a breeze. Shalom was flexible and patient with us which made our wedding day stress free and relaxing. We are so appreciative of that! She is so kind, and has the biggest heart. Her words during the ceremony were meaningful and heartfelt. We would highly recommend YH&M and Shalom for your upcoming wedding!Christy & Patrick
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
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

We couldn’t be happier to have chosen Young Hip & Married for our wedding. Jef Young was our officiant and the ceremony was absolutely beautiful. We told Jef we wanted a traditional ceremony with elements of fun/meaningful, elegant/playful and sacred/frisky. We had all of these plus more. Jef also read some of the lovely bible verses we sent him. My family was really touched and we all ended up shedding some tears as the memorable words were read. We had the elopement package since our wedding only had me and my groom along with six family members. Our wedding, especially the ceremony was everything we wanted and was absolutely perfect.Sam
Thank you, Erika. You made our special day even more special with your kindness and professionalism.
Everything was excellent and Erika is a wonderful person. She made our special day more remarkable and memorable. Punctuality and professionalism but kindness and a lovely person celebrating. Thank you.Beverley & Vittorio
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
- I’m so glad we went with these guys. They were so committed to giving us a personal wedding that was us. Jane was awesome and reached out to family and friends to find out stories about us. She also helped me and my partner with writing vows and giving us pointers. She was very open to hearing our thoughts and was soooo easy to work with. On the day, she was incredible! She kept everything fun and light and intimate which is exactly what we wanted. I had people coming up to me and saying that it was the most beautiful and funny ceremony they’ve been to and that was all down to Jane. She kept us right, guided us along the way and made us laugh. I would highly recommend these guys.Sara-Jo & Dáire
We wanted to thank you for doing an amazing job with the ceremony! We couldn’t have been happier with how it turned out.

Shawn was amazing! We loved our wedding ceremony. The entire process was so professional yet personal. Shawn made our ceremony so unique and memorable. We laughed, we cried, and we felt so much love. Thank you Young Hip & Married for making our special day something we will never forget!Anderson De Santis
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
- 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
Great experience using Young Hip and Married. Shawn did our brother’s wedding and we thought he was so good that we made sure we booked him for our wedding too and he did another amazing job with lots of good feedback from our guests. Would recommend Young Hip and Married to anyone getting married. All the best!Matt & Shivon
- 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
Young Hip and Married is fantastic; they are great at communicating and easy to work with. Our officiant caught covid a few days before our wedding and they were very quick with finding someone to take over for him and they did a fantastic job as well. Very happy with the service.Janessa & Adam
We eloped with young hip & married! Rhona was our officiant and we were so happy with our experience. She calmed our nerves and made us feel comfortable while exchanging our vows. Her words and delivery were heartfelt. Would definitely recommend booking Rhona!Ellen & Travis
Gerry was the perfect officiant for us. 10 out of 10. (We didn’t know him before this.) Gerry went above and beyond in so many ways. He had such a great energy from the start making our ceremony relaxed and fun. From helping us write our vows, to keeping our toddler distracted while we said them…he made things so much easier for us. We’re happy he was a part of our special day.Holly & Brandon
Great experience! Cory our officiant was absoulety amazing every step of the way.Naomi F
Our officiant, Jodi, did a fantastic job and we’re incredibly glad to have had her conduct our ceremony. She kept it simple, stress-free, and easy – exactly what we needed for our elopement. Thank you!! ❤️Carolyn & Peter
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 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
Young Hip & Married came highly recommended after our friends had used them for their September wedding last year. We contacted them and had nothing but a great experience from day 1. Marilyn was extremely helpful in planning our ceremony and the day couldn’t have gone better! Highly recommend her or anyone else from Young Hip & Married – thanks for making our wedding memorable!Kristina Pinton
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
We contracted with YH&M for our 11/12 wedding in Portland, and were assigned Sarah as our officiant. Sarah was warm, friendly, and so on top of everything from our first meeting with her, and we absolutely loved working with her! She responded to any questions we had super quickly, kept us on track by scheduling meetings at mid-way points to go over the ceremony, and was so patient with our indecision on some elements. Sarah also came to our rehearsal the day before the wedding in the rain and was still smiling and so positive about the whole thing, and helped make sure everything went smoothly.
The day of, the personalized vows she wrote were perfect- she paid so much attention to what we’d told her about ourselves and our values, and our friends and family can’t stop talking about the ceremony and most of them cried, haha. We’ll never forget it, and we’re so grateful to Sarah! We’d give our highest recommendations to Sarah and to Young Hip and Married.Kaitlin & Brian
My husband and I chose the elopement package. We wanted a small ceremony so we could get legally married in Calgary before having a wedding in Europe. Our officiant was Layne and he was great. Super friendly and kind. The actual ceremony was short and sweet. Customer service is amazing and it was so easy to communicate with them leading up to the day. I would highly recommend YHM!Paula & Jaromir
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
Our officiant Cory was exactly the person we wanted for our wedding ceremony. He’s friendly, personable, high energy and comforting to be around. He made us feel right at home when we first chatted with him. He was wonderful to work with and we loved how our ceremony turned out!Cindy Liu
Shawn was genuine, sincere, and more than willing and flexible to help us out on our big day! We hit a big bump in the road with our original plans due to COVID-19 but Shawn pulled through for us at the last minute and made it so magical. He walked us through the entire process and was available to us every step of the way. His wife, Erica, even photographed us during and after the ceremony and they are both truly such an awesome team. Thank you Shawn and Erica!Michael & Crystal
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
- Jane, thanks so much for all the work you did for us. Our guests really enjoyed the ceremony and the customized touches you added. More importantly though, you made Kathleen and I feel at ease on what was arguably the biggest day of our lives. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.Wes & Kathleen
We are so happy we had Young Hip & Married for our wedding! Lani was our officiant and she was beyond amazing! We had a lovely first meeting and she really took the time to get to know us. She helped us with writing our vows and gave us lots of great suggestions for the wedding. The ceremony was unique and really personal, and we wouldn’t have changed a thing! We would definitely recommend YH&M to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding!Mariel
- We 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 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
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
- The service offered by young hip and married was beyond expectation. By far pleased with how they went above and beyond for us to make this a great day. Highly recommended!Damon & Bobae
We 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
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
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
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
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
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
Beth from Young Hip and Married did our ceremony. In terms of designing the ceremony, she was meticulous in her detail researching our story and was responsive to our needs and suggestions. The ceremony itself was exactly as we had hoped for. She spoke very well and we really appreciated her calmness and energy.Andrew & Brittany
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
When we started researching officiants, I was determined to find someone that would make the ceremony the best and the least boring wedding ceremony my guests had seen, so when I found Young Hip & Married it seemed like a perfect fit. Brian was the company’s only option on the island and he was absolutely perfect. We chatted on the phone, over text and email, and met a few times before the wedding to get to know each other and it made the ceremony so authentic and personal. Brian is honestly one of the coolest and most interesting people I’ve met and almost every guest at the ceremony commented that it was the best one they’d been too. Everyone thought that Brian was an old friend that we’d known for years and it truly felt that way. The ceremony was the perfect length — not too long or too short — and Brian made it so fun and put us at both at ease. Young Hip & Married is a bit pricier than some officiants that you’ll find on the government website, but I am beyond happy that we went with them because the experience was truly priceless. I can’t recommend Brian enough and he will definitely be officiating our vow renewal in the future 😉Kayla & Aaron
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
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
- The BEST way to elope! Young Hip and Married made our elopement amazing and surpassed all of our expectations!Jayme & Brandon
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 loved our ceremony and I’ve had lots of comments on how great you were! Thank you so much for an amazing ceremony and for being so flexible!Heather & Jordan
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
- 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
WOW – thank you so much for putting together such a beautiful ceremony. It was amazing, perfect, and we feel so fortunate to have had you as our officiant. Your guidance helped Kyle and I create the ceremony of our dreams.Alana & Kyle
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
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
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 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
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
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
Young Hip & Married was hands down an all around incredible company to work with.
Stephen was absolutely amazing! He helped us create the most beautiful ceremony and his calm energy and sincere joy for us truly made getting through our big day that much more special and so much less nerve racking. If you are looking for an officiant who is going to go above and beyond to make sure you have the big day you were dreaming of, then I strongly recommend Stephen. You will not be disappointed!H & B
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
- 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
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
Getting married abroad seemed a daunting task but Lani pretty much guided us through the entire process ahead of the wedding, held our hands (metaphorically) in making the big decisions, and left us feeling entirely confident for the big day – and all this from the other side of the Atlantic. The day was everything we hoped it would be; a relaxed affair with 20 of our closest friends and family in Downtown. Lani captured the atmosphere perfectly and all of our guests commented on how “us” (not sure whether that was meant as a compliment for us or not!) the ceremony was, which at the end of the day is exactly what every couple wants; something that reflects who we are as a couple. We would definitely recommend YH&M and Lani in particular to anyone, and would certainly use their services again….o no….wait….James & Rosie
We had the pleasure of having Stephen as our officiant. He enthusiastically agreed to our adventure mountaintop elopement idea and was easy-going through all the last minute location and weather uncertainties. He prepared the perfect ceremony for us; joyous, genuine, and heartfelt.
Our two witnesses felt he was incredibly personable and authentic too. We loved his warm and vibrant energy. He made all of us feel so comfortable on the hike up. Stephen even included my guests’ names and some snippets of our personal stories that he heard on the way up into the ceremony. It was more magical than I ever imagined. I could not have hoped for a better human than Stephen to officiate our wedding and share our love story with.Tiffany & Russell
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
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
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
Thank you so much for being part of our wedding day! We had the most amazing time and are so grateful for Young Hip and Married because we had such a great experience. There were a lot of things to be nervous about after so much anticipation, but I couldn’t have asked for a better day!Rose & Marlon
YH&M was exactly the right choice for our elopement. We always knew we wanted to elope, it was just a matter of how. When we decided on a helicopter adventure with Sky and our photographers, Isle and Oak, Young Hip & Married was the perfect next choice. They’ve all worked together before! We love that they are inclusive, modern in all the right ways, and focused on what makes each union unique. Erika met us at the hangar and her kind, calm (while still being excited), professional demeanour shone through. She listened to us about the story of the origin of our rings, and then added it into the ceremony. We are so grateful for her, and the way in which YH&M took care of us through the whole process. 10/10.Kim & Chris
We had a great experience with Young, Hip & Married. Our officiant was great at keeping in communication. Our ceremony was exactly what we needed and wanted- simply, quick and easy. The whole team at YH&M were great!Shannon & Jack
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
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
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
Randy Hamm was the officiant for our wedding and he was OUTSTANDING!! All of our guests raved about how good he was. He got everyone involved, and kept them entertained. If you are looking for an officiant that is unlike any other, Randy is your guy! The team at Young Hip & Married were very easy to correspond with (which isn’t always the case with wedding vendors, unfortunately).
Randy gave us the ceremony that we were dreaming of. He kept it light hearted and very personalized. We didn’t want anything scripted. He was able to tell a story about US.
Thank you Randy! *round of applause*The Dinhs
It was a wonderful experience! They were professional and eager to please! Amazing pictures and memories! Highly recommend!David & AJ
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Thank you so much for your kind words! Everyone said that you did such a fantastic job and people really got a kick out of the hand fasting. It was different and a little unique, so thank you for making it happen! I’ve enjoyed my experience with you and the company since day 1. If someone were to ask me what legendary customer service is, I’d point at you guys!Gina & Brett
Thank you so much for being our officiant! You were so amazing! Everybody was telling us throughout the evening that you were the best officiant they have ever seen at a wedding, and that you spoke so well, the ceremony script was amazing, and also that you just looked so chic and professional. My sister is now considering ditching her officiant for a Young, Hip, and Married officiant 😂 We’re so appreciative! Thank you again!Lucie & Spencer
Everything was wonderful; Erika was amazing and she made our ceremony exactly the way we wanted it to be :). She was kind, professional, on time, and just a joy to work with. I would highly recommend her and your team to officiate.Merissa & John
Our wedding ceremony went perfectly and we could not have been happier with it! So many people commented on how much they loved the ceremony, and how Marilyn made them feel included in it, rather than like they were just a spectator. And I was surprised at some of the people who were so touched by the custom ceremony and our vows… it was not just the family like we expected, it was our friends too! And a lot of our guy friends, who I didn’t realize were so sentimental! I am so happy I listened to my friend at work who suggested we use Young Hip and Married, and I would love to be able to recommend you guys to anyone else who is unsure.Ashley & Trevor
My husband and I had a wonderful experience with our officiant Shawn. A lovely and dedicated person who made our day so much easier and enjoyable for everyone!Harry & Toby
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 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 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
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
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
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
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
Accommodating, extremely easy to work with!! Very professional. Highly recommend!Tina & Derek
We had an incredible experience with YH&M. Beth was our officiant and she was beyond wonderful. The whole experience was seamless 🙂Ariana & Michael
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 wouldn’t change a thing! There’s not many brides lucky enough to say that their wedding was absolutely perfect!Kelly & Derek
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
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
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
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
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
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
BEST officiant ever!! We had the pleasure of having Erika be our officiant on our big day! We have been with her for 2 years and 2 reschedules, and her communication and understanding is amazing! She rewrote our script when we asked without hesitation, and always made sure we were happy! She is sooo sweet, friendly and lovely to be around.
Erika was super helpful during our rehearsal and gave us such ease of mind before leaving to make sure everything was running smoothly. She gave amazing suggestions and advice. Our script was personalized and beauitful. We had sooo many compliments about Erika throughout the night and after the wedding about how great she was and that was the best wedding and ceremony they ever been to!
She had everyone is smiles, tears and laughter. She knew the moments to step aside to be out of photos. Couldn’t have asked for a better officiant!
Hire Young, Hip & Married, you won’t regret it!! Yes they are a bit more expensive, but you only get married once and they will make sure you have the best ceremony possible! They are worth every penny and more!
Thank you sooo much Young, Hip & Married and a special thank you to Erika!Joanne & TJ
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
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
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
- Now that Anton and I have had a chance to relax a bit and enjoy married life, we just wanted to say another big thank you to you for being part of our wedding day and making it so memorable for us. We had such a great time and the ceremony was just like we wanted it to be (and fun too!).We found the rehearsal to be super helpful too. It made us feel more comfortable and confident on the day. I didn’t get much sleep the night we did the rehearsal, but I surprisingly slept well the night before the wedding. I think it really helped me to have time to reflect on what was going to happen on the wedding day.Thank you for the vow course as well! It was great to have a framework to work with, with the different sections and relative lengths of each.Yasaman & Anton
Beth was our wedding officiant and she did such an amazing job telling our story. Her energy was amazing and brought such good humour to our relaxed casual wedding. I highly recommend Beth!
We 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
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
Lise was incredible. We had a non-traditional wedding with a private signing/legal ceremony in the morning followed by a larger traditional ceremony and reception in the afternoon. Lise performed our signing/legal ceremony with just our siblings present. Even though it was a small ceremony, she still took the time to get to know us and walked the line perfectly between making our morning ceremony special without overshadowing the afternoons events. I would highly recommend Lise to anyone getting married in the area.Jessalyn & Eric
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
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!
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
Young Hip and Married is an exceptional group of people who we felt genuinely cared that we have the best wedding experience possible, from the very beginning to the big day, and even after! We so appreciated the entire process, and the flexibility for us to be involved in the writing of the ceremony. Both us and our guests were blown away on the execution by Erika on the day of the wedding. Certainly a milestone moment in our lives we will look back on with smiles on our faces.Sam & Scott
We had such an amazing time working with Shawn Miller! We knew he was the perfect one to officiate our wedding right when we first had our zoom meeting with him! He was easy to talk to and was very accommodating! He was also present on our wedding rehearsal a few days before the wedding.
He made our wedding day extra special by telling a short story about my husband and I. Our family and friends asked if we knew him beforehand because the way he talked during our ceremony made it seem like he was there right when my husband and I started dating– the ceremony was unique and very personal. He also gave us pointers on how to write our own vows!
Overall, we highly recommend Young Hip & Married, and we loved working with Shawn! Thank you for making our wedding day extra special and memorable!Adrienne & Tyler
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
We were SO pleased with YHM! Shawn was our officiant and was great to work with. He collaborated with us to customize our ceremony. He also did a fantastic job facilitating and taking charge of our rehearsal. On our wedding day day, Shawn was fantastic. His kind energy put everyone at ease and he was very charismatic and engaging. Our guests were blown away by our ceremony and I would recommend Shawn to any couple needing an officiant!Nicky
We could not be happier that we hired Shawn to be our wedding officiant! The whole process of working with him was a dream and he created the most amazing, personalized ceremony that we could have asked for. All of our guests couldn’t stop talking about how awesome he was and how they enjoyed the ceremony very much. Shawn genuinely cares about the couples he works with and is a true professional who is easy to work with, fun, and stylish. We highly recommend him for any wedding! Thank you Shawn!Justin & Johnnie
Our experience with Young Hip & Married was nothing short of perfect! We wanted to keep our special day simple and carefree and YH&M ensured just that. Everything from location suggestions to an absolutely amazing officiant was exactly what we envisioned. I would highly recommend YH&M to couples who want to keep their elopement simple and stress-free! Thanks for everything YH&M team! You made our special day unforgettable!Tiffany & Adam
My husband and I put a lot of effort into finding the right officiant for our wedding. We knew we didn’t want a little old lady who does the same weddings every weekend for the last 20 years. .
I was so intrigued when I discovered Young, Hip & Married! We were put in contact with Cory and we hit it off from the first meeting. Cory was such an amazing officiant and made our wedding much much more than I had hoped for. We had high expectations but they were blown away. My husband and I each sent Cory our love story but from our own perspective and allowed Cory to surprise us at the wedding by melting our stories together. That allowed us to be surprised and deeply touched at the same time our guests were. I feel this made the ceremony more genuine and not too rehearsed. Cory is so kind and we have enjoyed getting to know him. He made our dreams come true and I can’t thank him enough for that. We have received so many compliments that our wedding was so personal and touching. I believe we owe that to Cory!
Don’t think twice, book Young, Hip & Married.Lesley
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 wanted to say a final thank you, for being such a wonderful leader for the most sacred part of our day! Thank you for saying all the important stuff… and making sure us and our brothers were following instructions!Matthew & Alessia
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
Young Hip & Married was just perfect for us. I wanted something beautiful classy fun and so so stress free and blam found it here. We booked our elopement through them. Our officiant was Beth and she’s so cute and fun. She made our vows hilarious (we are a humour filled family) and Emily took fantastic photos. I’m super happy with our special day and I don’t think you’ll regret being stressless on your wedding day.Roger & Huanyu
We were in a rush and these guys made the process seamless. Smooth and fast which is what we were after. Thank you and your team for the amazing help and service.Michael & Aoda
Cory was fantastic – you know he leaves an impression when multiple people come up to say congrats, but then ask you where you found your officiant! Even my wedding planner said he was the best officiant she had ever worked with and will be recommending you to future clients. We love Cory and were so happy we had him as an integral part of our wedding day.
You guys far exceeded our expectations on how you could make our wedding day even more memorable. Thank you for everything!!!Jessica + Reuben
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
I highly recommend YHM! I want to send a huge thank you to Layne and Deanna for being so kind to us on our big day. You guys made us laugh, you were so easy to work with and we are so incredibly thankful to have found this company. YHM walked us through our vow training, they officiated our wedding AND they provided photography. I can’t recommend enough.Christina & Cole
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
- 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
I never imagined getting married could be so fun and easy! From the very start, staff were very responsive with clear instructions what to do – we even get a reminder what not to forget on the day of. Charlie & Heather are super chill and go above and beyond to be there for your needs with some good professional advice on preparing for the ceremony and photos. We loved our wedding day and not have to worry about anything but showing up !P & B
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
Young Hip & Married is an amazing company to work with. We had Rhona as our officiant and we would not have had it any other way! She is so patient, calm and has a peaceful aura to her. Myself and my now husband highly recommend Rhona Segarra and using Young Hip & Married!Natalia & Leo
We found Young Hip & Married in 2021 when we were considering an elopement package. When 2022 rolled around and we decided to have an in-person wedding we decided to reach out to them again. And we’re so happy we did!
Through YH&M we found both our wedding officiant, Rhona Segarra, and our wedding photographer, Clint Bargen. Both were absolutely the best! We met with them online first and decided to work together because our values really synced up with theirs.
Rhona was very sweet and was totally prepared when the time came. She was able to keep us calm and grounded so that we could be present and enjoy the moment. Many of our guests commented that the words she chose were very moving. And that she smiled and seemed to really enjoy the ceremony.
Clint takes wedding photography to a whole other level! Not only did he take beautiful pictures that captured the moment he also helped us through each moment throughout the day. He’s been to more weddings than we have and was a dedicated guide. We didn’t know how to do the ceremonial cake cutting and Clint took over and gave some simple instructions so we felt comfortable in front of our gather family and friends.
If we had to do it all again, we wouldn’t change a thing.Colin & Janet
Perfection! It was such an honor and privilege to have Kadee present our wedding ceremony to our family and guests. Choose the package where they tell your story! Trust me it was so worth it 🙂 Every guest enjoyed the heartfelt story and laughter.Henry & Susan
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
We had Shawn as our wedding officiant and absolutely loved our ceremony! It was so special and intimate. It was all so stress-free as well. We got to meet Shawn in person, and we had a chance to go over the entire ceremony before the wedding. Loved everything about this company!Ashley & Toby
- 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
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
Great people to work with. Rebecca was really easy to communicate with. Jane was a great officiant and the photographer, John, was amazing. Highly recommend YH&M!!Christian & Silvana
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
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
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
Jordan Shaw was our officiant from Young Hip and Married for our elopement and he was amazing for us! We wanted an intimate, non-religious ceremony and he created an amazing script with a beautiful blessing at the end that was perfect. Highly recommend him and Young Hip and Married for wedding ceremonies!Lauren & Justin
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
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
We were married in September 2019, and the experience we had with Beth from start to finish was one of the best parts of our wedding. We had selected a full package, allowing Beth to write and direct the ceremony that best fit our style, but which also allowed her to be comfortable in her style as well. It was fabulous to be in such good hands, to be understood so well, and to have someone convey our story so eloquently. The ceremony was a major highlight, and we’ll cherish the vows and story she wrote forever. Thanks Beth!Tivohn & Katie
- We 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
Thank you so much for everything yesterday. You wrote the perfect signing ceremony for us and we are forever grateful we were able to have this private moment with our siblings.
I don’t think I will ever forget you having our siblings perform the declaration at the end. Thank you for this memory. Thank you again for being a part of our day.Jessalyn & Eric
We recently did our wedding through Young Hip & Married and it was honestly perfect. The wedding was small, intimate, easy to set up, and went off flawlessly. We wanted something COVID-friendly with immediate family, and Erica gave us a few solid options and packages – we eventually landed on Stanley Park as the location. Erica, Jane, and co were super friendly, responsive, and provided easy documentation and guidance throughout the whole process. Honestly, everything was just super easy and really helped de-stress the event.
The wedding itself was great. Erica helped us arrange and time everything, and was a great photographer throughout. Jane was a great officiant and did a simple but meaningful ceremony with vows and rings exchanged. If you want to do an intimate, family-focused wedding – can’t recommend Young Hip & Married enough!Shay & Rachael
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
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
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 absolutely loved having Shawn and Erica be part of our special day. Shawn’s words about love, commitment and marriage during our elopement ceremony were so powerful and made our moment so much more meaningful. Erica’s positive energy made us enjoy and take our photos that much better. So lucky to have this beautiful couple marry us and capture our love!Sarita Basran
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
I’m so glad I reached out to Young Hip & Married. They made the whole process very simple and hassle free. Our wedding officiant was Erika and she was so nice to work with. Highly recommended!Alvin & Akemi
Young Hip and Married was a great company to work with for our ceremony. We worked with Shawn and he was amazing! He is so kind and loving and really wanted to get to know us to create a personal ceremony that was not canned or boring but truly about us and our love. Shawn was easy to work with and he changed things in the ceremony at our request to make it more personal. On the wedding day, Shawn did an amazing job. His energy was infectious and he really did make the wedding memorable. Everyone should work with Young Hip and Married!Margaret & Devon
Oh my goodness, thank you so so much for Saturday. We are still glowing from the beautiful ceremony. Everyone always said how fast it would go by in a blur, but I remember every single moment. It was amazing. You were amazing from start to finish of the process. I will absolutely recommend you to anyone getting married!! Wishing you the best and sending our love & endless thanks.Emilie & Ryan
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
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
Cory and Erika were amazing; could not be better! We felt like we were with our close friends. We are from a hispanic country, but really it was so beautiful. Thank you – the best people!Basinger Dominguez
- We were so happy to have you take part in our wedding day! We both really loved the words you spoke. You are so kind and have the perfect demeanour for this. You make everyone feel so comfortable and calm. Thanks again for everything!Jess & Raad
Thank you for making the day exactly how we wanted! Your team of planners, officiants, and photographers are amazing.Chelanne & Chris
Stephen Anderson was the PERFECT officiant for our wedding. He created a ceremony custom made for our situation. He is considerate, understanding, polite and a classy guy in every way. We are so pleased to have him marry us and highly recommend Stephen to anyone for their wedding.Larry & Edward
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
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
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
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
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
Getting married during a global pandemic is far from easy. YHM acknowledged this and worked with us, ensured we had a physical distancing and safety plan in place, and made our day more special than I ever imagined. Jane, our officiant, was absolutely lovely, and walked us through each stage of the elopement process. Thank you so much for taking some stress off of us as we took our loving relationship to the next level.Bran & Mikah
My husband and I had a wonderful experience with YH&M! They have such great communication. Our officiant was Curt and he was the best! Everything went smoothly. Our requests were for the wedding ceremony to be inspiring and memorable, and to ensure that guests would feel like they are a part of it, not just as audience. And Curt made sure to tick those boxes! Curt is so personable! My husband and I really love him and his vibe. Additionally, the rest of the team at YH&M were all so organized and professional. They are definitely the best in the business. It’s been a pleasure working with them. We definitely recommend!Jewel & Goodee
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
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
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
We wanted to thank you so much for the great job you did and the positive energy you brought to our wedding ceremony. It was so perfect and we really appreciated how easy you made this whole process for us. Your card was a very thoughtful touch as well!
We will definitely be recommending you to any friends/family that are getting married in the future.Katharine & Jason
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
- 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
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
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
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
- 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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
This company had the approach, the guidance, the resources, and the warmth to make my ceremony the best and most unique my friends and family have attended.Annette & Joe
Young Hip & Married was so prompt on all their responses and helped us with EXACTLY what we needed.We were looking for a signing ceremony as we already had an overseas wedding. I was able to make some customizations to our ceremony and Erika was so sweet and funny. She made everything light and really understood our sense of humour and was so supportive of our tiny wedding. WE LOVED IT <3 Thanks for being part of our signing ceremony.Cassandra & Trevor
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
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
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
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
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
- Marilyn was awesome, and I appreciate all the hard work she put in to making the ceremony go off without a hitch.Kristina
- 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
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
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
- 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
Well…what to say about this lovely company but more specifically Rhona??? They are absolutely amazing! Their professionalism is top notch.
Our first meeting with Rhona was via Zoom. She came with a great and genuine spirit which immediately put us at ease. She was so real and walked us through what that part of the evening might look like. She followed up with so much support material around writing your own vows or choosing an already curated one.
Thank you Young Hip and Married for sharing Rhona with us!
Rhona, it was such a wonderful wedding and you will always be a part of it. We can’t thank you enough for your calmness and professionalism. We will never forget you.Adanma & Peter
YHM were wonderful to work with and were great at rolling with the punches when our wedding dates and details were altered by COVID-19. Peter La Grand was our officiant and he was really awesome, a great listener, and did a great job writing a unique script for himself at the ceremony that honoured our history and requests.Sterling & Ara
We are about to leave for our destination wedding, but had our legal ceremony prior to our trip. It was easy to book and plan our ceremony. It was so much more than just a legal ceremony—the vows were a perfect fit for us, and the hand ceremony was truly heartfelt and very meaningful! Our officiant, Mark was very personable and professional—he made our day perfect!Dana
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
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
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
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
Young Hip & Married are amazing! From my first contact with them all the way to saying ‘I do’ they were so incredibly helpful. I unfortunately had numerous changes to my wedding plans, due to Covid, and they were able to accommodate – they made a stressful situation as stress free as possible.Sara & Ryan
We can’t thank you enough for how easy you have made this process for us. Your professionalism and kindness helped us so much as we were so last minute and behind on our planning …❤️ There is nothing I would change and again thank you.Darya & Anoush
We 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!
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
Really easy and Stephen A. was amazing. We were looking for a very intimate and personal ceremony and he delivered. The whole process was great. I would certainly recommend!Ryan & Najia
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
Beth from Young Hip and Married went above and beyond serving as our wedding officiant. She was on the ball with her communication and really personalized our ceremony. She is extremely professional, personable and we would recommend her to any of my friends in need of a wedding officiant.Kathleen & Fabian
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
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
Shawn was the officiant at our October 2020 wedding. As a more mature couple, we had certain ideas as to what we wanted our ceremony to look like! We had seen Shawn at our friends’ wedding and liked him. As well we had been at another wedding where another member of the YH&M team was the officiant and she was great! Our ceremony was intimate and romantic yet humorous! Everything we wanted! Shawn delivered for sure! Thank you for being part of our fabulous day! We would absolutely recommend your company to others!Pat & Shelley
Amazing experience all around. Great customer service. Anthony was wonderful.Kylie Virtue
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
We can’t begin to explain how truly amazing every aspect of our helicopter elopement was. Young Hip & Married were incredibly helpful, accommodating and responded promptly. We were ecstatic to have Shawn as our officiant and Erica as our photographer. They were both very personable. Thank you Shawn and Erica for making our day so special and for being such sweethearts! We couldn’t have been happier with our decision! Truly top notch, highly recommend!Tara & Isaiah
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
My wife and I, along with our two witnesses, arrived at the gates of Golden Ears park on a gorgeous Tuesday afternoon in March. We had arranged to meet Kadee and Emily there at 2pm with the intent to drive further in to the park to a few preselected and picturesque spots to conduct our ceremony and take our wedding photos. We arrived to find the gates locked! Kadee and Emily seemed a bit more concerned than we were, but remained consummate professionals. We simply backtracked down the road a bit and said our vows on a rock outcropping in the middle of a river along the side of Golden Ears Way and took some lovely photos (after politely shooing away a few groups of playing children and teenagers). Kadee and Emily were wonderful to have with us on our wedding day; I would highly recommend them to anyone.Ben & Miranda
Jonathan M. was an amazing officiant for our ceremony. We wanted short and sweet but personable and it was just that. He was a great fit. I would highly recommend him for officiating services for brides/grooms-to-be.Holly Miller
We spent quite a bit of time researching wedding officiants in Vancouver and we are so glad that we met with Shawn Miller.
Together, we worked to customize an entire ceremony that was completely and genuinely us. His infinite patience and creativity had all our guests talking about how sincere and refreshing it was to attend a wedding where the officiant spoke like he actually got the chance to get to know the couple and engaged with those gathered to witness the marriage. Shawn’s advice and guidance was invaluable when planning the big day and we are one of the lucky few that can say our ceremony started right on time!Roxanne Ramzi
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
- We had such a fabulous experience working with Rhona from Young Hip and Married. We had a bit of a different request as we wanted a dear friend of ours to perform the ceremony. Rhona was nothing but supportive and helpful through the whole process. She provided all we needed to have a successful ceremony and was full of warmth and support the whole way through. Her presence on the big day was a calming one for us, and our friend who was marrying us – we couldn’t have asked for better 💕 With Rhona, you can’t go wrong! Thank you so so much.Melissa & Kevin
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
Since day one Jane was extremely easy to get along with and talk to. Jane always replied right away via email or text message. After the first meeting we knew she would be part of the reason our day would be so special. Jane presents herself in a professional, yet fun manner. We would highly recommend Jane and Young Hip & Married to any of our friends and family.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Our experience with Young Hip and Married was great. Our officiant Jordan was awesome, our limo driver took a wrong turn and the bride was at least 30 min late to the venue and Jordan was very understanding. We were able to review the ceremony beforehand and make changes. It all turned out amazing. Thanks again!Ty & Quinn
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
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
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
Rebecca from Young Hip & Married arranged our ceremony in Vancouver, we came from Australia. Fantastic to deal with, nothing was too much trouble. Our celebrant, Marilyn was absolutely beautiful and perfect for our family to celebrate and formalize over 22 years together. Thank you all, Toni, Lindy, and family.Toni & Belinda
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
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
Planning our elopement in Vancouver with the help of Jane and the rest of the YH&M Team was flawless, stress-free and so simple. If you are considering booking your elopement with them, stop considering and book NOW. Our wedding day would not have been the same without them.
Jane was prompt in responding to emails, gave incredible advice for locations and was professional and lovely during our ceremony. It felt as though we had known her personally for a long time.
The YH&M Team has streamlined elopement ceremonies and we would recommend this a million times over! This is a decision you just can’t regret. Thank you for making our day the most amazing day of our lives!Cindi & Nate
- 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
I would highly reccomend Shawn and YH&M for your ceremony. It was deeply personal and our story was the focal point of the ceremony. We have received countless compliments about our ceremony and many wondered how many years Shawn had known us. Beautifully done and we would choose them every time.Eric
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
The BEST! I wish there were more than 5 stars because they deserve all the stars! Our wedding day could not have been any more perfect. They did a great job making it casual, personal, and unique. There was no stress, no complications, and tons of good vibes.Caitlin & Christopher
We 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
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
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
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
Randy Hamm at helped us to create the most special part of our wedding! We have heard over and over from friends and family that it was the best ceremony they have ever attended. And we may be biased, but we could not agree more. It absolutely exceeded our VERY high expectations and has been permanently etched in our hearts. We knew we weren’t the type of couple who wanted to get the ceremony over and done with and onto the party; we really wanted to create a ceremony that would capture who we are and allow us to express our love and commitment in front of our witnesses. We had a Skype meeting with three officiants and right after talking to Randy, we knew he was “the one”. He was an amazing listener and communicator, on top of being an awesome person! We expressed to him our vision for the ceremony – that we wanted it to be loving and meaningful, a little funny, but not a joke, and most importantly, very “us”. Randy respected and delivered this from start to finish. Our second meeting was in person at a pub. We got along brilliantly with Randy. He asked us thoughtful questions and enabled us to open up right away. He talked us through sample ceremonies, answered all of our many questions and reinforced we had made the right decision. He knew how much we loved beer, so even suggested a beer toast instead of champagne, which we ended up doing, and it was perfect! After our meetings, he shared sample readings and questions to help us write our vows. And when it came down to that difficult task, he was right there with us, making sure one of us didn’t upstage the other and making suggestions. For the ceremony, he completely set the tone, got the balance of seriousness and light-heartedness and left no dry eyes in the audience! He was an absolutely amazing speaker and added the sweetest personal touches. We also did a quick assessment and counselling session in advance of our marriage. We highly, highly recommend this for all couples!!Ashley & Reiner
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
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 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
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
My partner and I loved our elopement-style wedding! We had a destination wedding the following week, but wanted something short and sweet for the legal ceremony in Vancouver. Every aspect of working with Young Hip & Married was a breeze! Their website was clear, easy to navigate, and had helpful tips. After we filled out the questionnaire, we received a response within the day, were able to secure a time and location within the following day, and heard from our officiant immediately. Planning our wedding has involved many vendors that have been unreliable, so I can tell you that when our officiant arrived early on the day of the ceremony and things went exactly as we expected, we couldn’t have been happier! All of our friends and family also remarked at how pleasant and seamless the ceremony was.Shaneen & Patrick
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
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
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
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
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
Shawn was absolutely amazing! He was so flexible while writing our ceremony script and was really able to capture us! Everyone at our wedding couldn’t stop talking about how personal and powerfully Shawn spoke. Shawn was the perfect mix of funny, serious and outrageously well spoken. It felt like he had known us for years instead of just a few months.Emily
- Peter and I want to thank you again for being part of our wedding ceremony. Your energy and your words were really heartfelt and wonderful. We really enjoyed the ceremony! Thank you!Peter & Daniela
We 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 worked with Erika Enns at YHM for our wedding in July 2022, and honestly wouldn’t have asked for a more perfect ceremony. With just a phone call and questionnaire, Erika worked her magic to create the most personal, engaging and totally authentic ceremony. She totally understood what we were looking for, and managed to create something hugely emotional without any cliches, cringe or cheesy moments. Every one of our guests commented on how personal the ceremony felt, and how different it was to so many weddings they’d attended in the past. Erika and Jackie-Deane were a dream to work with, and made the whole process totally seamless. We couldn’t have asked for anything more – thank you so much!Livvy & Hugo
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
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
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
- It is a rare experience to work with someone outside of your relationship to capture it, honour it, and present it to those you care most about as you and your partner create a sanctuary, a special space, to put each other first and take a big step into a new, untold, tricky, and beautiful chapter of life together. My husband Triston and I shared this experience with Officiant Chris-Ann Lake and I can honestly say that not only did she honour the magnitude of this experience but added elements to it that made it more extraordinary than we ever imagined.Chris-Ann Lake is meant for this. She truly sees people. She sees people and cares for them along the path to their wedding. She invests time, passion, and trust along this journey to arrive at a destination that is irreplaceable. She captained our wedding with kindness, joy, professionalism, genuineness, and immense care. We honestly couldn’t have asked for anything more from our friend, Chris-Ann Lake. The Young Hip and Married Team, and specifically Chris-Ann have our highest recommendation!Savannah & Triston
- I cannot thank you guys enough for making this happen for us! Rebecca (customer relations), it was the best experience/day of our lives. We are still in awe about the helicopter elopement. The pilots, our photographer (Erica), officiant (Kadee) were absolutely amazing and we could not have asked for a better elopement. All of you guys made us feel so special and were all just perfect. Again, we cannot say one bad thing about this elopement and I would have paid thousands of dollars more! It was absolutely perfect and I have you all to thank you for that. You worked really hard and made this happen for us and again thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.Thank you, Young Hip & Married, for making our helicopter elopement one of the best days of our lives! We will never forget it.Alaysha & Darren
We can’t 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
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
We had Shawn as our officiant. Shawn was awesome – we loved the ceremony draft he made for us and he really made the day about my husband and I. Our family mentioned that Shawn did a phenomenal job and they really enjoyed his personality. Some family members even said they wish they had somebody like him for their wedding. Shawn helped us with our vows. When he double booked himself he apologised and sent a co-worker in his place for the rehearsal. Shawn’s coworker Denise did so good and was so helpful. The company is awesome and has many choices for officiants and we loved how they personalized everything around my husband and I. Definitely recommend them.Samantha & Sean

- Chris-Ann was the most amazing person to fit our “short and sweet” ceremony. As soon as we met her, she matched our energy, really made the ceremony perfect and exactly what we wanted/hoped for. Could not be happier with Young Hip & Married because of how easy and smooth the process was from the time we reached out to them to the ceremony itself. All around great people and services.Ben & Savannah
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

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 had Shawn officiate our wedding and it was amazing. We had so many compliments on the ceremony and people asking where we got him from. Some people complain about the costs for this company on the wedding groups I am in but they are worth every penny. The ceremony was personal and felt like he really knew us. He got our drafts to us in a timely manner, showed up for the rehearsal dinner (even though we forgot to confirm and we booked the rehearsal almost a year in advance, it gave me comfort for the wedding day knowing they had their schedule organized). Shawn was running about 30 minutes late on the day of the wedding but that was due to the people before us running behind so it was out of his control but he did call and let us know so we just made an announcement to our guests so they knew what was happening and could grab a drink while they were waiting. I would highly recommend Young Hip and Married.Lindsey Noble
My husband and I found Young Hip & Married via Google and were immediately drawn to the company as they offer a fantastic service that allows couples to facilitate a personalized ceremony where they can be “married” by a friend/family member, while still having the marriage/ceremony be legalized through the attendance of one of YH&M’s officiants who is witnessing the ceremony and comes up for the legal signing of the licence (which could also be done ahead of time or afterwards at the couple’s choosing).
It was important to us to have the legalization of our marriage done during the ceremony, and YH&M was incredibly accommodating and set us up with Erika Enns, who was an absolute pleasure to work with. We spoke with Erika over the phone and she immediately was kind and supportive of our plan, understanding what we wanted right off the bat.
On our wedding day, she arrived early and prepared and having previously gave her our license, she brought it up for the signing during the ceremony. Erika was quick and efficient, very helpfully ensuring the ceremony continued on easily while clearly explaining who needed to sign what and where. She was so nice to work with and was a perfect addition to our day! Thank you so very much YH&M and Erika for making our vision come true!Deyell & Russell
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
Our relationship with YHM has extended for far longer than we anticipated – thanks covid! – and for this reason, among others, we are incredibly grateful for the professionalism, flexibility, and warmth demonstrated by Kadee (who officiated our legal ceremony in 2020) and Shawn (who officiated our larger wedding in 2021). Shawn on the big day itself was simply amazing – we received many compliments from guests on his “stage presence” not to mention how he contributed to the overall ceremony. We’re so thankful we chose YHM to be part of what turned out to be a very unconventional journey!Patrick & Allison
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
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
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
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
An essential for any elopement! They helped us set a date, time, booked an officiant, and photographer, and even helped us find our perfect location. We would recommend them to anyone!Lauren & Ethan
Young Hip & 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
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
We could not have asked for a better experience working with Young Hip & Married. Shawn was there every step of the way to guide us through planning the ceremony. We felt going into our day that he had helped to create a ceremony that really felt like us. On the day, we were even more blown away! We would not have changed one thing, it was perfect. If you are getting married you will not be disappointed booking with Young Hip & Married!!Laura Willms
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
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
I hired Erika to be the officiant for our wedding day and she is AMAZING! We had to postpone our wedding 4 times due to Covid and every time she was available and very understanding. Her communication is great and response time is fast. I had my rehearsal the same day she had to officiate at another wedding and she was still able to make it on time for my rehearsal. I am so happy with this service and will recommend this company to anyone getting married.Tamara & Palmer
Jane Halton from Young Hip and Married was absolutely fantastic. She worked with us every step of the way leading up to our wedding and gave us guidance that was incredibly helpful. My wife and I both knew that we wanted to do our own vows, but had no idea where to begin. Jane gave us just enough guidance to help us write our vows while still making sure they were our own; they ended up feeling like the perfect expression of what we wanted to say to each other. She also helped us craft what felt like the perfect ceremony, and we’ve received numerous compliments on the ceremony and our vows following the wedding. We couldn’t have done it without her, and we’re so grateful that we found Young Hip and Married for our wedding.Stefan & Stephanie
We were married at the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary in Calgary, with Jodi as our officiant and it was perfect. We couldn’t have asked for anything more, we got exactly what we asked for.Alaina & Matt
- It truly was the best day! We are very happy to have hired you and to have found Young Hip and Married, a delight to work with. Very professional and communicative. It’s stressful going through all the steps to plan and you made it very simple and easy for us! I would recommend you in a heartbeat!Thanks again!Mel & Sean
Had no idea what to look for and how this would work but we knew we wanted something unique. After doing a search, I stumbled upon their page and it kind of stood out with a couple of buzzwords/phrases that spoke to what we were looking for. Something uniquely us and fully customized. We sent off the request and were quickly moved into a conversation with the business who were very helpful right away. It was the 1st time so neither me, nor my now wife, had any idea what we were to do with this part of the wedding.
It didnt matter; they jumped right in and let us know we are far from the 1st that showed up doe eyed on the subject. We were put in touch with Jason pretty quick. We ended up talking over the phone at 1st and it was one of the 1st moments of “breath out” we experienced during the planning. He was ready to go, he had a plan for us and just wanted to hear what we had to say pertaining to what we like. He took that 1st interview and started to get to work.
We were a little late on the follow up as I am sure many of us are but he maintained contact and reminded us periodically that we still had this to complete. We were only about 5 weeks out when Jason had suggested we meet via Skype to build off the 1st call. It was great; he had an idea based on the initial call and started bouncing ideas off us. It fueled the thought processes for us as well and we worked to put together a fully customized, short and sweet but very meaningful ceremony that day. Jason took the ideas, wrote up a draft and sent it that week. We were able to review, make a couple small changes and send it back for finalization.
This was an area of worry from the jump and this company took that all away and allowed us to concentrate on all the other planning. It was incredible how easy it felt. While I would love to say I would use them again I do think this will be the only time 😉 I highly recommend to anyone that needs this service however. They were terrific.Ron Klatt
My husband was the groomsman at a friend’s wedding where Lani from Young Hip & Married was the officiant. He enjoyed the ceremony so much that he insisted we go with them for our wedding ceremony. When we met with Lani, I can see why he enjoyed it so much – Lani got to know us well, and tried to incorporate our personalities, hobbies/interests into our ceremony. During our actual ceremony, she had the audience engaged, and laced together words and quotes that described us into the ceremony proceedings – to audience members, it seemed like she knew us well like good friends. It was relaxed, non-traditional, but yet still touching – I was crying before we even got to the vows! Many of our friends and family said it was the best ceremony they’ve ever been to – so if you’re looking for a personalized, not boring, and non-traditional ceremony, you’ve found the right people! They also offer premarital coaching to hone communication skills to set you up in the right steps.Luo Lora & Clinton
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
We had such an amazing experience with Young Hip & Married! The whole process was clear and easy to navigate. The website was detailed but not too overwhelming.
We decided to elope at Stanley Park Rose Garden in Vancouver, B.C. and the YHM team provided all the information we needed to make sure we knew how and where to purchase our wedding license, park permit and liability insurance. Communication with the staff from when we paid online all the way to our wedding day was helpful, kind, and quick.
We loved the awesome vow writing class (that was an added free bonus) ahead of our wedding date and Jane, our amazing officiant took time to chat with us a few weeks before to answer our questions and make sure we felt at ease.
The day of our elopement was perfect! Jane met us at the park and together we found the perfect spot. She made sure we felt ready to go and then proceeded to facilitate a lovely, intimate, and joyful ceremony. It was everything we wanted. We are so grateful for and highly recommend Young Hip and Married and Jane! Thank you!
We also wanted to share our wedding blog post with you all as well. This was how we shared our elopement news with our community. Lots of our friends have been excited to learn about YH&M through it.Faith & Abhi
The whole experience with YH&M was seamless. From initial contact, to meeting with our officiant Jodi, to the wedding itself. Everything was easy and they maintained great communication throughout. Jodi did a fantastic job with our ceremony and she was a pleasure to work with. She helped coach us through putting together the ceremony to make it unique to us, and was also able to make it bilingual for our Spanish-speaking family. Overall a great experience through and through!Alejandra & Cameron
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
- Thank you for everything! Our wedding was incredible and we can’t thank you and our vendors enough! Especially when those dark clouds rolled in and the tornado warning came on the TV! But regardless of the quick downpour, we had the most amazing day and it was everything we could have dreamt of and more. We have received a lot of lovely feedback about your officiating and we couldn’t agree with everyone more about how great you were 🙂Caitlin & Jordan
- John & Arwen
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
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
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
The team at YH&M were very helpful and accommodating as we planned our elopement. They made every effort to connect us with a queer officiant to give our ceremony some extra magic and did they ever deliver!
Curt Allison personalized our ceremony to reflect our relationship and we will forever remember the love and care that he brought to our special day. John Bello was our photographer and was just as fantastic to share our day with. He captured some incredibly breathtaking photos that we will cherish forever. We could not have asked for a better ceremony and we are grateful for the YH&M team in making that happen for us!Jamie & Laura
Randy performed our ‘Vancouver’ wedding ceremony in a park near the ocean, in dumping rain, with us in our bathing suits and raincoats; he even joined us and the bridal party for a post-ceremony ocean dip. Because we did the marriage questionnaire and coaching session with him prior to the wedding, he was able to personalize the ceremony in such a way that we still get compliments on the wedding 6 years later!! I highly recommend Randy for both the pre-marriage coaching and performance of the ceremony.Jo-Ann D.
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
I can’t express how much I recommend this company. From the first email to the wedding itself and everything in between, they have been friendly, helpful and all around amazing. My husband and I wanted to do something absolutely different and wild, asking 9 of our close friends to hike Dog Mountain on Seymour at sunrise to witness us get married. When I wrote the email to Young Hip & Married about what we envisioned our wedding day to look like, they didn’t even hesitate to accommodate our insane request. Our wedding was perfect! I can’t thank Shawn enough for waking up at 3:00am, meeting us on the mountain at 4:15am and hiking to the lookout with all of us. This gratitude we feel can’t be put into words. Good on you for creating such an amazing company! Obviously our crazy wedding has caught some attention amongst our peers and I’ve been singing the highest praises about Young Hip & Married! Use them! They’re the best!Caitlin & Christophe
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 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 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
YH&M made everything easy and stress free! The officiant and photographer were both amazing. No complaints whatsoever!Laura & Christopher
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
Thanks so much to the team at YHM and especially to our wonderful officiant, Jane. Jane was outstanding. She was patient with use through the preparation, she was funny and insightful in her presentation, and she made us both feel so great during the event. Lots of great comments about Jane from those we shared the day with as well. Most of the comments were about how personal she made the event through her words and comments. Julie and I so appreciate all that Jane did to support us through this exciting process.Dan & Julie
- 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
Erika was extremely patient and professional in planning the whole ceremony process. She always ensured that we’re on the same page and was excellent at telling our story. The rest of her speech was great – perfect length and wording to signify the meaning of marriage and the rings. The ceremony became such a more memorable experience than expected all thanks to Erika!Katie & Calvin
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 knew early on that we wanted Young Hip & Married to officiate our wedding. What a great decision! Our officiant Shawn took the time to really get to know us and wrote a ceremony script that was beautiful, heartfelt and full of details about our love story. It was everything we hoped it would be and more.Janine & Sam
Amazing. From start to finish it was exactly what we were looking for. Erica and Shawn were fun professional, knowledgeable and a dream to work with. Worth every penny and a memory to last. Did I mention we were married in a helicopter orbiting above Vancouver? Yep, they made that happen. Thank you very much you cooky kids; you did awesome.Sean
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
I am so happy that I chose Young Hip & Married. Our officiant, Erika Enns, was amazing. She’s such a lovely person and she was the perfect fit for our ceremony. And our photographer Emily Nicole – she guided us through our photoshoot and now we have very beautiful photos from our wedding. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who is looking for an officiant & photographer – all in one place. Everything was so easy to arrange. I just loved it. A huge thank you to all.Evita & Andrejs
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
My husband and I were looking for an officiant that was thoughtful, organized and fun. Shawn is that person and we were lucky to get him. All of the suggestions from Shawn and Young Hip & Married really made the ceremony run smoothly and feel unique to us! We got many compliments from our guests and family afterwords. Thank you Shawn for such a wonderful experience. And thanks for getting us married!Ashleigh & Greg
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
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
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
Excellent company to work with. Jane conducted our ceremony and she was perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend her.Katherine McKey
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
We’re so happy that Young Hip and Married exist! Everything was great from inquiry to ceremony. We are so lucky to have Jane Halton as our officiant and John Bello as our Photographer. Thank you so much Rebecca for making this happen.Redmond & Luigi
With Young Hip & Married you will get a wedding that is both individualized & unique – and far from generic! Professional, organized, flexible, and thorough are just some words I would use to describe this company. A few things that really stood out to me right away were how quickly they were to respond during communication, their great tips and advice for weddings, and how they even provided a course for writing your own vows.
Gerry Hiebert was the officiant for our wedding and he did an amazing job from beginning to end!
His expertise along with his warm and calming presence made the entire process smooth and painless, and gave us the confidence and peace of mind we needed. Not only was Gerry incredibly helpful and supportive along the way, but he also created a highly personalized ceremony which was perfectly tailored for us!
On our wedding day we were able to just enjoy it and live in the moment, and we are still receiving comments about how beautiful and romantic the ceremony was. We couldn’t have done it without Gerry, and we are so glad we chose Young Hip & Married!Sylvie & Jon
- Young Hip and Married made our day special. The officiant was exactly what we wanted and the service was professional and personalized to our exact needs. Highly recommended.David & Laura
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
Young Hip and Married provided my husband and I exactly the wedding ceremony we hoped for. We were looking for a unique and personal experience that wouldn’t compromise our personal or spiritual values. Shawn was attentive, creative, and confident helping us arrange just such a ceremony. He kindly helped us through the entire process, from writing our own vows to navigating the paperwork involved in getting hitched. On the big day Shawn really connected with our family and friends and held the perfect space for my husband and I to be wed. After the ceremony many of my guests (some cynical anti wedding types) approached me to say they had never been to such an authentic and personally meaningful wedding until this one. I came to Young Hip and Married with a lot of ideas about the wedding I didn’t want and Shawn was able to help me find my perfect wedding.Jennifer Himmel
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
- Lauren was incredible, we could not have asked for a better person to be our officiant! She did an amazing job capturing my partner’s and my energy and intentions for one another. All of our guests could not get over how perfect she was and how she made the ceremony that much more special. The day would not have been the same without her. Thank you again!Anne-Emilie & Eleen
Was recommended by a friend who had used their services. We were extremely happy with the results from start to finish. From the simple back and forth via email to get to know us right up to the rehearsal and eventual ceremony to taking care of all documentation, it really was seamless and easy going. Shawn tailored the ceremony exactly how we wanted it to be and based on the compliments received from our guests, the ceremony was a success and enjoyed by all. We highly recommend YH&M!Jean Michael & Tamara
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
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
This team is great! We got exactly what we were hoping for and more. Pleasant to work with and helpful with writing our ceremony. Would recommend!Amanda & Jesse
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
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
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
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
We are so happy with how the day went (the weather turned out to be so incredible), and we are very grateful for your help in making our day so special. We’ve really enjoyed working with you, right from the beginning with our intro meeting, and it was so great that you understood right away the tone and intent we wanted for our ceremony. You made the process incredibly easy, smooth and stress-free for us, and for that we are very thankful. All our friends thought it was one of the best ceremonies they’ve attended!Mengdi & Max
Our officiant, Charlie, was absolutely the best! Charlie came in super friendly and fit right in with our group. We couldn’t have asked for a better person to be a part of our special day. Thanks YH&M and huge huge huge thanks to Charlie!Terra & Byron
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
I was referred to Young Hip & Married by my amazing photographer. YH&M were super friendly, quick & responsive to all of my questions. We got Erika Enns as our officiant & we couldn’t be any happier. She worked with us to make some small tweaks for the script to make it fit ‘us’ better. She even made recommendations for places for our engagement photos & took the time to get to know us on a more personal note.
On the day of, she met us early in the parking lot & we got to walk down to our ceremony spot together. Erika took her time & let us enjoy the moment knowing that it’s passing by so quickly. Erika was was very loving & personable it really made our ceremony smooth & effortless. Would recommend Erika for sure!Leslie & Tony
They are amazing! Very responsive and organized even when we changed the event location a couple weeks before the date they still made it work. Sarah our officiant was amazing! She was excited and so genuinely happy for us. She was up for going down on the rocks for the ceremony with the waves splashing up and was so excited for us. She was amazing!! I definitely recommend her and the company for your services. We couldn’t be happier!
Sarah was fabulous! She was fun and excited to be there. She was up for going in the rocks to help us get married! She did a fantastic job and was very reasonable when we had to make a last minute change! Definitely recommend!Kaila & Shane
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 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
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
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
We didn’t want a typical wedding set up so Shawn helped orchestrate a circular wedding for us. It was perfect in every way!! He really kept us calm and relaxed so we could enjoy every moment of our ceremony.Ann & Justin
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
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
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
- 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
- Our wedding was better than we imagined. Denise and Emily played a huge part in that. Despite a couple of hiccups with some guests arriving late and slight change in location of the ceremony, Denise and Emily were so gracious and helpful. Thanks guys for making our dream wedding a reality!!Milena & Jordan
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
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
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
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
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
Great service! We got the awesome elopement package and enjoyed every second of it. The pictures and ceremony were great!Nikita & Tyler
Peter and the entire Young Hip and Married crew were so awesome to work with! From the beginning to the end, the whole process was super personal and customized to what my husband and my wishes were. We really felt like Peter knew us when he was standing up there as our officiant and it totally made our wedding complete. We would absolutely recommend Young Hip and Married to anyone wanting a personalized service!Dallas & Flynn
We had a last minute wedding, but YH&M were able to fit us in and we are so happy they did! Erika was so wonderful to work with and she did such an amazing job officiating our wedding. We honestly couldn’t have been happier. Thank you for helping to make our day so perfect for us!Katie & Anthony
10/10 experience from start to finish with Erika! She is so professional, organized and genuine. She truly felt like a guest at our wedding! No one else we would have had marry us and be a part of our special day. Young Hip & Married is an absolute must!Kayla & Andy
- 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
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
Nothing but love for Young Hip and Married. We thoroughly enjoyed our ceremony and appreciate them for making our day so special!!Samantha & Zack
We had the most amazing experience with Peter La Grand. We had actually booked a different officiant who canceled just under 3 weeks before our wedding. Peter stepped in at that point and got to know our story and who we are so well in such a short time. We told him we wanted our ceremony to be beautiful, comfortable, personal, and to have some humour, and it was exactly that. We felt like a friend was marrying us. Several guests commented on how great Peter was and asked how we found him – many people assumed we already knew him! Thank you so much Peter, our ceremony was a huge highlight of our wedding day, we will treasure it forever and it could not have been better!Lea & Mitchell
We 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
We had the honor of having Curt from Young Hip & Married officiate our wedding. The team at Young Hip & Married was very accommodating with our last minute changes to both the guest count and venue. Curt was very helpful throughout the process and provided all information needed way ahead of time. I highly recommend the the team at Young Hip & Married. Thank you all for your support during our wedding!Brian & Pamela
- 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
You are an awesomely awesome person to work with! You made our day special and we will be happy to share this with another people!Natalia & Jorge
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 worked with Lani – she was beyond amazing. Hilarious, extremely warm and kind; we couldn’t have wished for a better officiant. She was excellent at listening to our story and writing a beautiful version for the ceremony. She also was fantastic at wrangling the wedding party in a fun and easy going way. Grateful for her and highly recommend using her for your special day!Bree & Steve
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
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
We had a unique situation of wanting our long time friend to officiate our ceremony but also having our wedding day be legal. The team at Young Hip and Married had the perfect service for us where we could have our friend do the ceremony and the legal officiant came by after to make it all legitimate. Lise was lovely to work with and gave us exactly the legal ceremony we wanted. The whole team was great to work with and very responsive.Georgia & Nathan
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
Having Young Hip & Married officiate our elopement was extremely easy and fun. Rhona, our officiant, was great! She’s very kind and sincere and Mark and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. We are very happy we chose Young Hip & Married to be part of our special day! Thank you once again!Nicole & Mark
Young Hip and Married provided my wife and I a personal and unique ceremony that was perfect. Denise was our officiant and she was so professional, very thoughtful and a careful listener to our desires for our ceremony. We loved how smoothly and perfect the ceremony went and our guests loved it too.Taylor & Lauren
Erika, you were absolutely amazing and exceeded all expectations. You gave us the exact ceremony that we wanted, and we don’t think it could have been any better. From the start of the ceremony to the very end, it was perfect. You wrote the most beautiful ceremony that included our guests, gave thanks to our parents and was all about Jonathan and myself. So many people have come to us and said the ceremony was amazing, that you were amazing, and that it was such a heartfelt, and meaningful ceremony. I am pretty sure you had most, if not all, of our guests in tears.
I think all that is left to say is Thank You, Thank You and Thank You. Thank you to you for everything, I don’t think we will ever be able to say how thankful we are and Thank you to Young, Hip & Married for connecting us with you. We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant, or a better ceremony.

We 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
Peter was such a perfect addition to our remote small mountain elopement! So professional and had such a calming present vibe. We highly recommend! Not to mention he traveled three hours to the middle of nowhere! Serious trooper!Tyla & Arad
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
Beth was incredibly amazing for our ceremony! She listened to everything we said and truly took it to heart when writing our script. Everyone at our wedding thought she had known us for years and said it was the best ceremony they had ever been to! We cannot recommend YH&M enough, especially Beth!Bethany & Ryan
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
- Jane Halton officiated our wedding. Communicating with her was easy and we loved that our ceremony & vows told our story authentically. We were a little bit nervous before the rehearsal, but after running through it with her, we felt so much better and hopeful that our day will go smoothly. On our wedding day, Jane was very supportive and made sure to give us little reminders. She worked very well with our coordinator to make sure that our ceremony was smooth-sailing. She completed the paperwork and we got our marriage license soon after the wedding. We are so happy that we chose YH&M and got to work with Jane!Andrew & Riela
- Katie & James
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
Beth was our officiant and she did an amazing job! She incorporated our story into the ceremony so everything felt tailored just for us – better than we could have hoped for! She made us laugh and have tears of joy on our happy day with her beautifully written ceremony and delivery.Melissa & Marko
We had a small ceremony in Duncan BC in our uncle’s beautiful backyard. Our officiant Brian was easy to communicate with before and during the wedding. His beautiful words were true personally to us. He was calm and relaxed and made us feel at ease. We highly recommend Young Hip & Married, especially Brian! Thank you so much for your help and support on our special day.Katie & Dustyn
Awesome group of people! Super inviting, the officiant, Cory, supported and understood how to make our wedding and our marriage super special.Tasha Baynes
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
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
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
YH&M were so great to work with. I live over 1000km away from Vancouver but knew we wanted to elope in Vancouver, YH&M were very easy to communicate with via phone and email! It was also fairly last minute planning on my part but YH&M managed to make it all work perfectly! Jane was an amazing officiant, professional, friendly and personable. I would highly recommend them!Allison Shepperd
Young Hip & Married was absolutely fabulous! They were so professional, amazing, and kind throughout the whole process! They made our day extra special and everyone really felt the love that day.Taylor & Elise
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
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
We were married by Rich for our Canmore wedding and we really enjoyed getting to know him. He helped us write a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted, was personable, professional and timely. We’re so glad we went with Young Hip & Married.Brittany & Mark
My husband Skylar and I were so happy with our experience with Young Hip & Married. They were wonderful to communicate with and took the time to explain how things worked clearly and were patient with us as we made a decision about our officiant. Our officiant Peter was perfect. He was flexible, clear, open and so wonderful to deal with. He asked us so many questions and so by the time the day came around we felt like we really knew him and he knew us. He was wonderful on the day attentive and engaged and he speaks so well. He turned our story into something beautiful and memorable for all our guests and ourselves. We had multiple guests asked us where we were friends from because he was so connected to Skylar and I. I would not hesitate recommend both Young Hip & Married and Peter for anyone’s wedding.Lorin & Skylar
We so appreciate being able to have our little elopement on such short notice even though it was pouring rain on the day, we braved the weather and so appreciate that our officiant (Kristen) and camera woman (Naomi) did as well for us!Brittany & Nick
Young Hip & Married and our officiant, Erika Enns, made our special day even more special! We had an amazing small ceremony at the Lighthouse Park in Vancouver and everything went fantastic! From our first contact to the moment we got our Marriage Certificate – everything was organized professionally, timely communication and important reminders. Definitely recommend these guys!Irina & Curtis
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
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
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
Lani did a phenomenal job officiating our wedding ceremony! Would recommend her for anyone that would like to really personalize your ceremony and make it your own.Karen Rickards
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
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
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
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
Shawn was amazing! He showed up on time and knew exactly what to do. I hadn’t spoken to him on the phone or in person but he said our vows like he knew us for years. I couldn’t stop saying to my guests how thankful we were that he was our officiant. Our guests loved him too. Shawn helped make our day amazing! Thank you, Young Hip & Married.Kirsten Kostyniuk
Matt and I are so lucky to have worked with such kind-hearted souls like you, Madalena and Marcelo! You set a beautiful tone to our day and could not have asked for a more magical ceremony.Matthew & Elsie
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
The crew at Young Hip & Married were all so wonderful, responsive and attentive especially during this crazy pandemic year. We were quickly matched with the perfect officiant (shoutout to Beth, you were PHENOMENAL) and the whole experience from start to finish was simple, clear, and fun. We loved every moment of planning our ceremony, from zoom chats with our officiant to helping edit the final script – and the day of was FLAWLESS as well! Beth did such a wonderful job with the ceremony, everyone adored her and laughed in all the right places. 100/10 service and experience!Kat & Kelsey
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
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
- 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
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
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
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
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
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 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
Shawn was an incredible officiant. He was warm, responsive, and supportive. He put together a beautiful ceremony for us and helped us write our personal vows. The guests loved it, and we will remember it forever. Highly recommend these folks, they’re wonderful!Grace & Kelsey
Lorraine gave us an absolutely beautiful ceremony. She was calmed, patient and also containing of all the emotions that came up before and during our ceremony, which my husband and I really appreciated. She took her time to get to know us and customize a very special ceremony for us, taking into consideration all of our preferences. We are very thankful for her.
Thank you so much Lorraine!Susan & Jarod
Wow! We could not have asked for a better experience for our special day. In a (very) short amount of time Young Hip & Married was able to match us with a great location, photographer, and officiant. We loved working with Erika Enns! Her words were so powerful and we were so happy to have our wedding just the way we wanted it. The day was more than magical. Thank you Erika and Young Hip & Married for the awesome experience!Kyle & Laura
A HUGE thank you from Eli and I for making our day better than we could ever have imagined. You nailed the ceremony and our love for each other, and were such a joy to work with.
Couldn’t have asked for anyone better to have made our marriage official. Thank you so much.Eli & Anna-Maria
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
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
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
Easy to reach, easy to coordinate with, transparent with every transaction. Everything about our wedding was personalized and done how we wanted it. No drama. No nonsense. Vow making seminar is so easy to follow and such an awesome feature. Beth is an amazing officiant, took the time to know us and we felt she is never too busy to accommodate our questions or requests. Britt is an amazing photographer, took the time to scout our venue to find best shots possible.Angeli & Renz
We 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 had such a great experience with Beth, Clint, and the whole Young Hip & Married team for our small elopement this summer. We originally just booked the elopement package as we had our own photographer, but when plans with our own photographer fell through, the team at YH&M were quick to find us a replacement photographer even though our wedding date was just weeks away. Our officiant Beth took the time to ask questions about our relationship and incorporate our answers into a customized ceremony script. She even accommodated our request to include our secret handshake into the ceremony. It was perfect!
Our photographer Clint was awesome to work with. He was professional but casual and friendly in a way that made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. He had great ideas for poses and photo locations, and we never felt awkward in front of the camera. We are so glad we booked with Young Hip & Married and would highly recommend them. Thank you for taking care of everything and making our special day so memorable!Andrea & Paul
We 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.

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
Erika was lovely and very easy to work with. Our Elopement ceremony was held on our boat in Vancouver harbour. Young Hip and Married helped us coordinate our amazing day and remained flexible as we finalized details. We enjoyed meeting Erica and loved her warm, friendly personality, her humour and positive, cheery demeanour. Overall, our day was exactly what we wanted. We would recommend Young, Hip and Married to anyone wanting to get married.Jodi & Rob
We did not know at the time of planning our wedding how important the choice of the officiant was. Our ceremony was unique and customized for us and truly the highlight of the big day! We recently got married in Nov 2020 during the height of the second wave lockdown here in BC. It was an extremely stressful time to say the least as our venue closed its doors 7 days out from the wedding and we went from a 50 person wedding to having just our families there. It was challenging but our amazing Officiant JANE was supportive and worked with us to make changes on the fly. We ended up pushing the wedding out one week to a new venue and she was able to accommodate us. In terms of the ceremony, we wanted to have something that highlighted both of our different cultures and again Jane did a great job of working with us on those pieces. We also wanted the ceremony to feel spiritual and special and Jane hit the spot so right. She was easy to work with, responsive, fun, and professional! We were so happy and would certainly recommend Jane and Young Hip & Married to anyone looking for an officiant.N & D
Strongly recommend! Great experience, very in depth asking lots of questing and really getting to know the couple. Fantastic job!Shelby & Chris
We are so happy we hired our officiant from Young Hip & Married! Excellent service since the day we inquired and right up to our big day and even after. We are so lucky to have Marilyn and she is everything!! She is such an amazing person and so great with what she does and I couldn’t have asked for a better officiant. She’s perfect!! She made sure that our ceremony will run smoothly and tailored it to what we want it to look like and made it truly unforgettable. It was so special and it’s something we will always remember for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much Young Hip and Married team who are always been so helpful!Kishia & Paolo
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
We were married by Rhona on a cold and rainy day in May. She was wonderful; calm, competent and so kind. She delivered a beautiful and well-paced ceremony. If we ever renew our vows we will definitely ask Rhona to be the officiant again!Jake & Diana
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
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 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
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
Arranging an officiant with the Young Hip and Married team was easy and quick! We had Johnathan as our officiant and we can’t say enough positive things; he was kind, and easy to talk to. He was so friendly and open to ideas. He also gave us some really great advice. The ceremony went off without a hitch! Johnathan was funny, interesting, sweet and engaging; our guests loved him, we loved him. It was so so great. I would recommend going with YH&M to ANYONE who plans on getting hitched! Very positive and amazing experience.Erica
We were beyond pleased to work with Young, Hip & Married. We had less than two weeks to find an officiant for our small elopement ceremony. Sarah came out on our wedding day and did a wonderful job. She was so warm and friendly. I highly recommend!Erika & John
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
Beth did an amazing job for our ceremony done in French and English. She was wrote a thoughtful, love-filled ceremony and delivered it flawlessly. There were many happy tears.Joe
- Excellent experience, very personable and professional!Dorothy & Sandro
The entire experience was fantastic. Jane was amazing and made our day incredible!Amanda & Drew
Jane from Young Hip & Married was amazing as an officiant. She did an awesome job with our wedding; the words shared were perfect and beautiful. We wrote our own vows and the vow writing course was very good, helpful and concise. It helped us tremendously to write our vows. We can’t thank her enough and are very happy that she was our officiant for our wedding.Liliana & Jason
Jane did an amazing job at our wedding! Even our friends who interacted with her found her very friendly.Althea & Seth
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
Shawn was simply amazing! So many of our guests commented on how they felt like he was marrying them too 🙂 He really connected with the crowd, and was such a please to deal with during the whole process.Christina & Michael
Very professional and knowledgeable. They guided us through this event and we’d be happy to recommend them to anyone.Vanessa & James
Wonderful experience! Our officiant was lovely. She took the time to determine exactly what we were looking for and did a great job of information gathering. The speech was heartfelt and genuine and everyone really enjoyed themselves. Excellent pacing and perfect delivery.Andrew & Amy
One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was choosing Erika from YH&M to be our officiant. From the moment we had our first meeting, we knew we had made the right choice. She was extremely helpful, kind, flexible, generous and insightful. She created the most incredible custom ceremony for us, something we will cherish forever. There was not a dry eye in the room! She made us feel comfortable and at ease during our wedding ceremony and we wouldn’t change one thing about our experience. Thank you Erika, you made our wedding dreams come true!!Tazmin & Shahaan
What a great service! It was perfect and our officiant, Peter, was so great. I wish I could give more than 5 stars; the man is a wordsmith. He spent quality time with us and was able to create a ceremony that truly reflected our personalities and us as a couple. He made it a fun and enjoyable journey.Chris & Jessy
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
Thank you so much for being our amazing and lovely officiant!! And thank you for being flexible when ceremony got delayed. We received so many compliments from guests about how well you set the mood and the way you spoke and everything was perfect!! We feel so fortunate to have been married by you, Erika!Lidia & Edmund
- 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
Curt is an incredible guy – he is so thoughtful and personable and we are so grateful he was our officiant! Working with him and YH&M was so easy and putting together the ceremony was a really fun and collaborative experience. It ended up being everything we dreamed of and more – it was so beautiful and just felt like us. A big thank you to Curt and to YH&M for making our day extra special; we highly recommend!Elyssa & Tim
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
Jane officiated our wedding this past weekend and it was amazing! We really wanted a wedding that was short and sweet but had a lot of fun and humor to it. Jane captured all of that! All our guests said the ceremony was so much fun and so “us” and we really appreciate how Jane could capture so much about the two of us. She was also so quick to respond, even when we had to move the wedding date, and it was super easy to schedule meetings and our rehearsal. You can tell Jane loves to work to make your wedding your own and we really recommend her for anyone who wants to personalize their wedding and make it a fun experience everyone will remember!Paige & Correy
We 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
My husband and I got married on May 28th with Stephen as our officiant. From the onset, communication with Stephen was easy and efficient! We had an initial zoom meeting where we were given the chance to meet and tell our story. He was able to capture our relationship in his script so well. 10/10 would recommend YHM and Stephen!Laura & Andrew
Working with Shawn and the Young Hip and Married team was a dream come true. We had a good feeling about it from the beginning based on the feedback from other couples so we didn’t think twice. Shawn’s enthusiasm was contagious and inspired us to think about taking a modern approach to our ceremony (like doing a cocktail hour before), infusing our personal story with a little bit of humour, and writing the most heartfelt vows (their guideline to writing vows was super helpful). We also appreciated the extra care when our officiant phoned on the day before our wedding just to check in on how we were feeling. Our wedding was truly beautiful, but one of the best compliments we get from our guests are that they absolutely LOVED the ceremony, and some even say that it was the best part of our wedding. Young Hip and Married is for anyone who thinks that their wedding ceremony should be unique, on-brand and fun. They are dedicated to celebrating not only weddings but LOVE as a whole!Elena Sarasom
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
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
- Shawn really made our day amazing! He had great energy and we are so happy we had him be a part of our wedding day! Both my wife and I were pretty nervous to be the center of attention and Shawn took charge! I would recommend Shawn and his team over and over again. He’s a professional, easy to deal with and anyone would be lucky to have him at their wedding! Thank you Shawn for all of your help and for being a huge part of our wedding day!Duane & Tessa
We loooved how Young Hip and Married was so simple and straight forward with planning our special day. Jane was our officiant and she was amazing. Emily Nicole was our photographer; we totally recommend her if you want your pictures to blow your mind. They both made us feel at ease and kept the process easy, simple and fun. We loved every minute of it.Hamas & Simon
Young Hip & Married were incredible. They help connect you with an officiant; we had Jane for our special day. She laid everything out clear and simple and allowed us to make adjustments to the ceremony.
Jane had great communication and was always quick to respond. She had great suggestions when we felt lost or didn’t know what to do. Young Hip & Married also offer the option of helping set up pre-marriage counselling and tell you where you can get a marriage license. The communication was incredible and extremely helpful. They took the stress out of everything!Bree & David
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
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
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 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
Our experience with Young Hip and Married was amazing. We had the pleasure of working alongside Denise. She helped us create a beautiful personalized ceremony. She was very quick to answer any questions and always available to chat when needed. All of our guests loved how personalized and meaningful this ceremony was. We highly recommend using Young Hip and Married for your wedding!Justine & Matt
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 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 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
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
Young Hip and Married made our elopement an amazing experience!! Through covid changes, snow storms and having to postpone multiple times, every step of the way was a breeze. They listened to what we wanted, got to know us and made our day so special. We had Rhona as our officiant and she was the sweetest, and Amber Leigh as our photographer and she had a great eye for detail!! We highly recommend YH&M and the photographer package, it made planning that much easier.Bobbi-Jo & Nathen
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
- We had the most amazing experience using YH&M for our backyard wedding. We got our officiant (Jane) and our wedding photographer (Erica Miller) through them and both were beyond amazing. The whole experience dealing with the team leading up to the event was so organized and relaxed; they would always reach out with ample notice to make sure things were on track and sorted which was really helpful when we were dealing with 10+ vendors without a coordinator.Our officiant Jane was amazing. Exactly the type of ceremony and relaxed vibe that we wanted; our guests loved the ceremony as well. It was probably one of my favourite parts of the wedding which I hadn’t expected.Erica Miller was an absolute joy to work with as well. We got a (very reasonable) package that included an engagement shoot, wedding day (2 photographers), and wedding book. Our engagement shoot was so much fun and the photos turned out even better than expected. We haven’t received the wedding photos yet but I have no doubt they will be amazing. Erica was just so much fun to have around! Our guests also commented on how fantastic she was.Do yourself a favour and book with YH&M! You will not regret it!Caitlin & Owain
- 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
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
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
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
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 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
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
We had Randy as our officiant at Young Hip and Married, and he was absolutely amazing! We had quite a fusion wedding and ceremony, (western and Indian) and Randy was so amazing and helping us bring our cultures together in our ceremony. He has so many amazing ideas, and really helped us plan out our ceremony. Everyone at our wedding gave us compliments on our ceremony saying it was heartfelt and romantic, as well as light and fun, which is what we wanted! He is completely capable to create any ceremony you want! Randy was such a great person to work with, and I would recommend him, and Young Hip and Married to anyone getting married! Thank you again, Randy!Nathan & Andrea
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 is an excellent wedding officiant. We were so happy with the service that she provided. She personalized our ceremony, made us feel at ease, and spoke from the heart. Throughout it all, she was professional, yet warm and personable. She was incredibly open to aspects of our ceremony that were non-traditional. Overall, she inspired a lot of confidence in us, and we are glad she was a part of our ceremony.S & J
Shawn Miller was the officiant at my brother’s wedding as well as a good friend’s wedding about 5 years ago; his charisma and style left a lasting impression on my now husband and I. While planning our wedding years later, we had the pleasure of attending quite a few weddings, so we kept our eyes open for a great officiant but none could compare to Shawn that we had seen years ago. When we met with him the first time, he made us feel relaxed and comfortable; it was an easy choice. He took the time to get to know us and craft a ceremony that felt personal to the both of us. Furthermore, he offered us both help with writing our vows. Shawn did not disappoint; our ceremony was amazing and we had numerous people ask us how we found him! We would highly recommend his services; you won’t regret it!!Jenna & Doug
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
Was a fantastic pleasure working with everyone to make our day great! Couldn’t of asked for better! 10 out of 10Justin & Olivia
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
We had the honor of being wedded by Chris-Ann Lake. They were very responsive and is probably the best communicator via email I’ve ever had the honor to interact with.
The words that they shared with our guests were so beautiful and helped make our wedding day better than we ever could have imagined.Ryan & Danielle
- 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
From our initial contact to the actual ‘big day’ – the team at Young Hip & Married provided exceptional communication and service. Our ceremony was unique (nude!) – we were embraced with openness and acceptance of what our version of ‘intimate’ meant. We were guided on how to write our vows with the YH&M ebook and it made all the difference to streamlining our intentions. As a photographer, Erica was a rockstar and provided great feedback, suggestions and creativity. Beth, our officiant, wrote the wording for ceremony that were beautifully fitting and heartfelt for our setting. I recommend YH&M to any couple who wants superb professionalism with cool people who really do make a difference. A big high-five to YH&M for your loving presence and helping us make our elopement unforgettable! LOVE ❤️Ellah & Terry
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
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
- I wanted to reach out to you to say a big thank you for officiating our marriage last week. You did a wonderful job and we couldn’t imagine having anyone else there to do it. It was so lovely to finally meet you, we will definitely be recommending you to our friends and family! All the best, and thank you again!Emily & Matt
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
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
They have an amazing team. Made our intimate wedding very special and stress free. Great price too 🙂Sarah & Zachary
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 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 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
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
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
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
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
- 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
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!
I manage the Princess and the Pea Hotel in Langley BC and had the pleasure of meeting Rhona, who officiated a recent wedding here. Professional, kind, and her grounded presence made this ceremony absolutely magical. I highly recommend her.Ange
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
We had Shawn from Young Hip & Married at our wedding – he was everything we could have wanted and more! Really set the vibe we were looking for and everyone loved him! Highly recommend them 🙂Kelsey & Sean
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
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
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
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.
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
Our wedding day was such a special, memorable day for us. I don’t think either of us has every been so happy! Thank you so much for making the ceremony what it was. It was perfectly us and exactly what we had hoped for. – Matt & MarinaMatt & Marina
My wedding day was still as amazing even though my now husband and I decided to elope. At first I wasn’t excited about the idea of eloping and none of our friends or family would be there to witness our special day. But when my husband found Young Hip & Married and I looked into the helicopter elopement package, I fell in love instantly. The whole experience from picking our special day to getting married on a private mountain top was a fairy tale. The ladies I was communicating with were very well mannered and respectful of our wishes. The officiant Kadee and the photographer Vickie made the ride and the special moment really come alive for us both. The many pictures that were taken to capture every moment of our wedding day made me really happy. The officiant Kadee made our quick but still special moment on the mountain top so special for my husband and I. Sky Helicopter was the company who flew us to the private mountain top. The pilot was very polite and was happy to be at his job. Everyone, you made mine and Jeremy’s special wedding day a day to remember forever. Thank you to all of you and I hope you make many more couples’ special wedding moments as special and intimate as ours was. Thanks again. Cheers 🙂Joanna & Jeremy
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
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
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
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

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!
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 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
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
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
Working with Young Hip & Married for our tiny park elopement was delightful. From our first email exchange with Tara (super responsive) to our amazing officiant Jane (perfect ceremony in a google doc!), to our wonderful photographer Emily (who met with us beforehand and was totally on the same page with us the whole time), they were all great, professional, easy to work with, etc etc. Loved the experience!Andrea
When we met in person with Erika at YH&M, we knew right away that she was who we wanted there on the big day. We were pleased with her communication, support, and most importantly her execution on the day. So many of our guests were commenting on how beautiful our ceremony was – Erika kept it short, sweet, and personal. She was a calming presence while standing up there and saying “I do”. Forever grateful.Jasmine & Dylan
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
Simply put, we had an amazing experience with Young Hip & Married. Communication between the team was fantastic and our officiant Lauren was there to answer any and all questions we had. Even when we wanted to make changes, she was super willing, with no hassle, as we went and we couldn’t have been any happier with the love and service we received. During these strange times of COVID some people tend to put a little less effort into making connections but not YH&M. Would absolutely recommend if you’re looking for people who have your best interest at heart. If we could get married again, I’d choose them no questions.Kaytlyn & Courtney
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

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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
- Thank you so much for celebrating with us! You were wonderful to work with – I think we were both so calm because of you!We couldn’t have asked for more – the service was seamless and beautiful and the weather was perfect. Aside from the small blip of stress when we found out they closed the park, it was everything I imagined and more!Thanks again for everything – running the service so smoothly and guiding us through the ceremony. We’re so happy you shared that moment with us!Mandy & Josef
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
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
Our officiant, Erika, took the time to get to know us as a couple and to truly understand exactly what we wanted out of our wedding ceremony. We were able to have complete control over the script and Erika provided us with a lot of suggestions along the way. We wrote our own vows, combining some provided by Erika and our own words. We thought that the ceremony was the perfect length and tone. I liked that we could communicate by text, phone and email. We would highly recommend Erika and Young Hip & Married to prospective couples.Julie & John
We had 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
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
- Young Hip and Married made our wedding experience easy going and friendly, like planning dinner with your best friends. Our wedding day went off without a hitch and our officiant was lovely and accommodating. We had an elopement style wedding, and although we hadn’t met Jodi before our wedding day, she was a delight and did a great job of dispelling our nerves before the ceremony. Communication with the Young Hip and Married team was fast and friendly. I would recommend them to anyone getting married in the Calgary area.Kiah & Aaron
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
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
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
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
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

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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Thank you SO SO much to everyone at Young Hip & Married! My new husband and I were visiting Canada from the UK and had always wanted something simple, stress free and intimate for our wedding. We certainly got that with YH&M! From the first email, right up to receiving the papers, everything was a breeze! We had the ‘Photography and Elopment Package’ with the wonderful Emily as our photographer and the fabulous Shawn as our officiant. We wrote our own vows, with helpful suggestions from Shawn, and loved every word Shawn said throughout our ceremony. He made us feel totally at ease, as did Emily! Emily made a camera shy couple feel totally confident, like no one was even there! We couldn’t be happier with our beautiful photos! Our day was just amazing. Thank you YH&M for marrying us!Joanna & Mat
We had Marilyn as our officiant for our elopment at Sea to Sky Gondola. She was kind, funny, professional, and was really the perfect person to marry my wife and I. I do not have enough words for how special she made the ceremony for us both. Thanks so much, Marilyn and YHM for being a part of what made our special day perfect.Sharayah & Katelynn
Jane Halton recently officiated our wedding. She was perfect to work with. We had a vision in mind for our ceremony and learned throughout the process with her that what we actually wanted, wasn’t what we thought we wanted when we had started the process. Our ceremony turned out perfectly, and that was in large part as a result of her guidance, patience and flexibility with us.Elyse
We 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 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
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 had the pleasure to meet with Rhona from Young Hip & Married. She was fabulous. Really contributed to making our wedding day special. We had many compliments from our guests about her, how personal she made the ceremony and how pleasant she was. Would highly recommend Rhona.M & M
- 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
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
Cory Dueck was amazing! We are so happy we chose him. Everybody liked him and our ceremony went exactly as I imagined.S Saniee
“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
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
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
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
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
We heard about Young Hip & Married through our photographer. Since we had family traveling very far to come see us get married, we wanted the ceremony to be a bit longer and more intimate. Shawn Miller was our officiant and was perfect. We were able to collaborate with him and tailor our ceremony to fit our personalities. His words were beautiful, and we couldn’t have asked for a better guy to of the job.Jaimie Krzynski
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
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
We booked a really tight schedule with YH&M and they managed to do it on time. We were outstandingly attended by Shawn who delivered an awesome and caring ceremony for us with beautiful, kind and loving words. Perfect!Thiago Tunes
- Everything went so well the day of. I had slight bride anxiety and both Erica and Kristen were so amazing and lovely to work with!!! I can’t express how grateful we are that it all worked out.We will definitely recommend you guys to others!!! Everyone was so understanding; we were totally scattered and changed plans etc. In the end, everything worked out because you guys are professionals and have things handled. This really is a great way to get married!!!
Kristen! You are so sweet! It was great to work with you and you really made the day so special! Everything turned out just great and we are very happy!Lauren & Neil
Wedding made simple! Requests accommodated, professional and personable!Dan & Andrea
We highly recommend YH&M! The entire team has been incredibly supportive and communicative during the covid19 pandemic. We had to postpone our original wedding plans and we decided to reschedule last minute and the YH&M team worked with us to make everything happen. Gerry, our officiant, was calm, flexible, and supportive during our entire time working with YH&M. He wrote a beautiful wedding script with impeccable attention to detail based off of communication between emails and meeting with us once in person. Thank you for everything!Josh & Stephanie
Our day was amazing and we couldn’t have been happier with our decision to have Shawn Miller from YH&M as our wedding Officiant. While home in Australia we found YH&M on the internet and put our trust in YH&M and especially Shawn for our special day while on holiday in Vancouver. The whole process was faultless and Shawn was so professional and fun right from our first meeting. He provided a wonderful suggestion for where to have our elopement ceremony and his delivery throughout the service was perfect! We could not be more grateful of Shawn for providing an enjoyable atmosphere and a day we will not forget, Thank you ShawnAnonymous
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
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
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
It was an absolutely perfect day in Vancouver and our officiant, Rob, was lovely. Young Hip and Married were very easy to work with and we appreciate the resources available as well. Thank you.Amy Molema
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
We had our wedding on May 22, 2022 and Erika was our officiant. My word, what a wonderful officiant. The whole process of preparing for the wedding, scripting of ceremony, rehearsing and the day itself was made so wonderful by her! Would highly recommend Young Hip and Married and also Erika!Melvin & Tsveta
- You were an incredibly important part of our day. Thank you so much for the most perfect ceremony. Your words and the way you led the ceremony was absolutely perfect. It could not have been better. We are very happy and we are so lucky you were a part of our very special day. Truly was magical!!Thank you a million times from both of us and the whole family. We greatly appreciate what you brought to our day.Natalie & Paulius
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
My husband and I did a Sky helicopter elopement with Peter as our officiant. It was such an amazing experience, making our marriage intimate but memorable. Peter was diligent, organized and did everything he could to make our ceremony personal. We can’t recommend him enough!Laura & Jamie
My husband and I had a beautiful wedding day. Our officiant, Terry, was absolutely perfect, everyone loved him. The words he chose for us were very special. I would recommend young, hip, and married to anyone looking to have a small wedding. Thanks!J Pore
We are very happy we chose Young Hip & Married! Chris-Ann was fantastic! She was very responsive and quick to reply to emails. Her overall vibe was exactly what we were hoping for. We were nervous to have a stranger marry us, especially because of covid so we couldn’t meet in person before the wedding, but Chris-Ann eased any trepidations we had during our zoom chat. The actual day of the wedding was so chaotic, but she remained cool, calm and so professional!!!!!Aya & Justin
We really could not have been happier with our experience with Young Hip and Married. They matched us up with the most wonderful, warm, loving officiant in Lauren. We can’t say enough about her except that she was meant to do that job! Our elopement couldn’t have been any better.Sara & Spencer
When planning our wedding we knew early on that we wanted to put a focus on the ceremony, and really have the opportunity to set the tone for the rest of the evening. Finding an officiant that did not just read out one of five set ceremonies was a huge deal, thankfully we found Young Hip & Married. We were able to customize the ceremony to engage our guests, instead of generic thoughts of love and marriage, we were able to share and laugh about how we met, talk about how we fell in love and really connect. Our officiant Shawn was so easy to work with, he was fun and engaging with us getting us ready for the big day. As well despite the fact he was always jumping from wedding to wedding when he was there helping us with our rehearsal and patiently waiting for late guests to arrive before we walked down the aisle he was always present and invested. The actual ceremony was wonderful, it could not have gone any better, it felt genuine and truly helped show our guests who we were as a couple. I have been told many times in the 4 weeks since our wedding by guests that they had never actually enjoyed a wedding ceremony that much, it is defiantly my favourite memory from the day! I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!! Thank you Shawn and Young Hip & Married.Alex & Kyle
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 both appreciated how easy it was to work with YH&M. Our officiant, Jordan Shaw, was wonderful as well. +Very accommodating +Friendly staff +Wide range of services to choose fromJ & J
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
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
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 cannot express how incredibly happy we were with our ceremony and the whole process with YH&M. We opted for the full package deal and were able to tailor the ceremony; it also came with a vow writing course, which was extremely helpful. So many people told us how beautiful our vows and ceremony were. Our guests were surprised that our officiant, Jordan, wasn’t a close friend with how personal the ceremony felt. Thank you YH&M!Megan & Ariel
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
- 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
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
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
- 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
From the moment we contacted them, the customer service was amazing! Jackie sent us a super fun personable video and was prompt to respond to our questions. Jane helped us pick a location to get married and was also very quick to respond to any questions we had. Jane’s energy was great during the ceremony. We also loved her outfit! Would highly recommend Young Hip and Married!Sara & Hollis
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
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
When we first heard about Young Hip & Married, we were intrigued but didn’t really know how wonderful of an experience it would be. From the beginning to the end, we had nothing but support from the different people we were in touch with and our officiant Erika was just so darn wonderful! She was open, kind, supportive, and so thoughtful about details we hadn’t even considered. The whole process of writing our vows and deciding how we wanted our ceremony to flow could have been so stressful had it not been for Erika – we really can’t say enough about how lovely she is. We truly lucked out in hearing about this company because while they might provide a service, it is so clear it’s much more than that to them. The communication was crystal clear throughout, and we really couldn’t have been happier with our ceremony!Gladys & Justin
Great service, we had Beth as our wedding officiant and she is awesome! Highly recommend.Trisha & Dulguun
Perfect wedding! We worked with Beth and the entire process was flawless. She was very easy to work with and made the entire process as easy and seamless as possible. She was very accommodating to our needs. We definitely recommend her!Cindy & Jason
We were getting married when restrictions only allowed for 10 people and the awesome package from young hip and married accommodated that perfectly. We were so happy with the communication and process, the day went by smoothly without any hiccups. I would absolutely recommend young hip and married!Michelle & Jeff
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
My wife and I could not be happier with our experience with Young Hip and Married. Everyone involved was amazing, and were more than happy to help us accomplish our dream day. Our officiant, Peter, was unbelievable! It turned out we had a lot in common including some mutual acquaintances. He took the time to get to know us both personally and wrote us the most beautiful and personal ceremony. If we could give ten stars it wouldn’t be enough to express our gratitude to the YHM team. Blessings and gratitude to you all!Chris & Kim
We 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
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
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
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
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
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
Great personal touch and service. Shawn went above and beyond in planning and working with us to create a unique and authentic ceremony.Guy & Jen
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
Bobbi was our officiant at our wedding and she was amazing – we couldn’t have asked for anything else. Her words were so touching and moving that there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. I would highly recommend Bobbi, and Young, Hip & Married to everyone.Andrea
- 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
- Ben and I wanted to give you a HUGE thank you for the most magical ceremony. It was beautiful. We both keep thinking back to it and reliving parts of it. We got so many comments saying how beautiful it was and how good you were. Thank you for being a part of our special day. Couldn’t have imagined it any better than it went!Erin & Ben
Kadee Smedley from Young Hip & Married did an AMAZING JOB as our officiant. She was responsive to our emails during the planning phases, she wrote us a wonderful introduction to our vows that really captured our love and who we were. While we did not meet in person until the actual day, we could not have been more pleased with her services. She even found our parents to get their information for the license while we were getting our photos taken! She printed up our vows so we did not have to worry about getting them to the ceremony. We had a zero stress experience working with her and would highly recommend her and Young Hip & Married to anyone in search of an officiant!Sybil & Jason
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
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
- 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
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
I thought Shalom was lovely and easy to work with. She was very responsive and did a great job telling the couple’s story. She was very warm and friendly and chatting with the guests beforehand. The ceremony was charming and personal. She did a great job!Margot Bower, Petite Pearl Events
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
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
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
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
We have had such an amazing experience with YH&M! We were able to link with Jane who was the very best helping us out along the way and having such great communication with us. She lead our ceremony so beautifully we were tearing from the very beginning with her words. We were able to have help with the videos provided for making our custom vows too! The weekly reminders to complete the vow course was a nice touch. Thank you guys so much for everything we appreciate you! We will definitely be spreading the word on YH&MIan & Kirstin
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
- 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
Shawn Miller crafted an amazing ceremony for my wife and I and he was incredible to work with throughout the entire process!Travis Harrison
We were completely thrilled to learn Shawn would officiate our wedding when we first contacted Young Hip and Married! My fiancé and I knew we wanted something a little different, more personal and completely unique for our ceremony and Shawn definitely delivered! We are so pleased with how the whole ceremony went; he created a personalized “story” to start off the ceremony and encouraged and helped us both write out own vows. I will admit I was hesitant with this at first but with Shawn’s guidance and support, I am so happy we did! Shawn helped us make this ceremony our own by helping us arrange a cask tapping – accentuating it with a personalized message relating love, partnership and family…to beer!! He truly was a pleasure to work with and I cannot recommend him and this organization enough. Thank you so much Shawn for helping our wedding visions come to life!!Cassandra
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
Our elopement was fantastic – I would not have changed a thing!Rebecca & Christopher
- 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
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 got married by Jane Halton this Saturday. She made our ceremony simple and beautiful. Highly recommend!Diana Meneses
- 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 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
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 commend them for the exceptional services we received in the midst of the Covid Pandemic 2020!!Lynn & Peter
Erika officiated our elopement and she was absolutely amazing!! She was so friendly and easygoing, and she tailored our ceremony so that it was exactly what we wanted. If you are looking for an officiant I cannot recommend YHM enough!Emily & Matthew
- We had a dreamy elopement prior to our big wedding. It was unforgettable and they made it as smooth and fun an experience as one could wish for!Catriona & Damien
They made the whole process very seamless. Always contactable and had great contacts for vendors to complete our day.Rod & Jessica
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
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
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
Beth Carlson-Malena was a joy to work with as the officiant for our wedding ceremony. We wanted a small, simple wedding and she helped guide us through the process, giving us great suggestions, which resulted in a ceremony that was perfectly suited to us. She is personable and very easy to talk and relate to. Our wedding celebration was lovely and she helped make our day extra special with her warmth and professionalism. We would highly recommend her.A & P
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
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
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
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
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 believe we had a pretty unique case. My husband and I wanted to have our ceremony on top of Mt. Seymour. There are no gondolas, and there was still plenty of snow on that hike in the beginning of May, so we knew that it would be a challenge to find an officiant who would hike up there with us. Thankfully, Randy from YH&M was up for that challenge! 🙂 He was also there on time and was very attentive; he engaged in meaningful conversations with our guests which meant a lot to me personally. The hike wasn’t easy, so he was also a great moral support to others :). There was an extra cost for his time, but absolutely reasonable and worth it.
I am very grateful that companies like YH&M exist and help bring our dreams to life <3 🙂Irina Gushchina
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
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 a great experience with Young, Hip and Married even if we were none of these. Jef was a wonderful marriage officiant. We appreciated his care and goodwill and could feel how much he loves doing this. Communication with the office goddess was smooth and easy.Andy & Stevie
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
Our Officiant Terry Shea was delightful, helpful and warm. We were very happy to have found him through Young Hip & Married. Their site also made booking and paying for the service pretty easy!
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
We absolutely loved our wedding ceremony! Shawn was amazing, he kept it light-hearted yet sincere. We had many people approach us afterwards to tell us how much they enjoyed it. Shawn made it so easy, right from meeting him for the first time to exchanging vow ideas and finally, our actual ceremony. He was incredibly helpful at our rehearsal, and was there for before and after the ceremony to congratulate us and give us a chance to ask any last minute questions. We will be recommending him to everyone we know!Nick & Miraya
Jane was an amazing officiant; we couldn’t ask for a better ceremony. Our guests were very impressed by the whole thing and very appreciative of the personal stories and humour. The professionalism she displayed put us at ease; everything was so well thought through from beginning to end. The vow writing tools are extremely helpful as we had no idea where to begin. I highly recommend this service over hiring someone who just shows up on the day.Shari & Philippe
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
Young Hip & Married paired us with the most perfect officiant for our wedding ceremony. Our wedding was a simple backyard setting, and we wanted the quickest ceremony possible. Both my husband & I were not interested in writing or saying vows, or saying anything except “I do”, and Gerry made that happen for us. From start to finish, Gerry was an absolute pleasure to work with and although our ceremony was quick (probably the fastest wedding ceremony in history), he kept the entire thing professional and very lighthearted and a little comical (just like us!). I highly recommend Young Hip & Married to bring your wedding ceremony dreams to life. Thank you Gerry and the Young Hip & Married team!Rianna & Dennis
I would highly recommend Young, Hip and Married. Having been to a ceremony by this company in Vancouver, I was so happy to see that they had expanded to Ontario. Mark Groleau was wonderful to work with from our first meeting to our wedding day. Our guests all raved about our ceremony; he managed to tell our story such that it was sentimental, lighthearted and entertaining — just what we had hoped for. We will look back on it and smile for years to come, and hope to see him at some of our friends’ weddings in the future (they are definitely all asking who did the ceremony!).Sarah Burns
We are so grateful we came across Young Hip & Married as we were planning our wedding. We hired Denise as our officiant and from the first time we met her we knew we had made the right choice! Everything was absolutely perfect. She was warm, perceptive, and thoughtful in everything she prepared – from readings, to our request for a Scottish handfasting, to our vows. We’ve had so many family and friends comment to us that it was one of the most personal and meaningful ceremonies they’ve witnessed – and we feel the same! Thank you SO much Denise for helping us create meaningful memories as we start our marriage together 🙂Aliez & Jeff
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
- Our officiant (Courtney) was punctual, communicative, and made the process easy for us. We definitely recommend using YH&M!Hunter & Stacey
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
We were planning an elopement wedding in Vancouver from another province; the Office Goddess at Young Hip and Married was so responsive and picked the best possible officiant for us! From the moment we met Kadee it felt like we were meeting an old friend. She was so personable and ensured the ceremony was everything we could have imagined and more! She was also so responsive and answered every question we asked. Thank you everyone at Young Hip & Married that made our big day the best day ever!Heather & Dylan
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 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
Randy and the Young Hip & Married team were incredible! We got so many compliments with most people telling us it was the best ceremony they’ve ever been to! Randy made us comfortable, made us laugh and was a pleasure to work with. He worked with us to really make our ceremony our own and fit our personalities! Thank you so much Randy and Young Hip & Married!Stephanie & Kyle
- 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
- We were thrilled with Debbie as the officiant at our daughter’s wedding. Her words were deeply thought out and exactly what the wedding couple was looking for. Plus, she is a joy to work with. We would highly recommend her to any couple looking for an officiant for their wedding.Sandy
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
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!
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
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
Fantastic organization! Very fun and outside the box. Jane was very accommodating, warm, and professional. We loved our ceremony and her words for us. We felt very supported by Jane and the rest of the staff; we would highly recommend them for their services 🙂Gina & Robert
- Thank you so much for your lovely message and kind words during the ceremony. We absolutely loved our wedding and a huge part of that is how awesome and cool you are. We’ve greatly enjoyed getting to know you and can’t thank you enough for helping us create a beautiful memory that we can reflect back on often 🙂Hopefully we’ll be seeing you soon (a lot of our newly engaged friends have been asking about you)!!Mackenzie & Anthony
Young hip and married, owned by a wonderful couple will listen to what you want and bend over backwards to make it happen! They want this experience to be truly what you dreamt of. Personally, I went with them specifically because they would meet me anywhere in Vancouver I desired. I picked Stanley park which made the ceremony and photos even more memorable. If all you want is to run away and elope, they are the crew for you. These people made my dreams come true!Jayd & Cody
Amazing Ceremony! One of the comments I heard the most during our reception was how amazing our ceremony was. Everyone was at one time laughing and crying at our story and how personalized the ceremony was to our personalities and relationship. Kadee is absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend her and the team at Young Hip and Married and their Rockin’ Wedding Package to anyone looking for get married and have a memorable and tailored ceremony. Thank you!Jennifer & Stuart
- 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
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
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
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
Booking with Young Hip and Married was super easy. Rebecca was very communicative and responded to my million questions prior to booking. On the day of, Shalom was a joy to work with! We were running a bit behind schedule but Shalom made me feel relaxed and calm when the ceremony kicked off. Her script was perfect for our micro ceremony and it was exactly what we wanted for a wedding.Jean & Kyle
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
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 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
- Thank you so much for giving us a perfect oath ceremony. Your draft of the marriage proposal is beautiful and warm. We are very moved and agree with you that marriage is to face all kinds of difficulties and happiness together in the future. Thank you again for this wonderful memory.Justin & Sherry
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
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

Working with Shawn was seamless and very tailored to us and our story. He brought charm and energy into the ceremony that was a perfect balance to the love and emotion we were feeling. This was our second marriage so we knew what experience we wanted. Shawn was understanding and onboard and took our lead but also helped guide us on best practices. We said “I Do”! Success! Thank you, Shawn!Monica & Robin
Oh my goodness Chris-Ann was the best officiant ever and we had the best ceremony! Thank you thank you thank you! Also you guys were sooo accommodating throughout all the changes for our wedding over Covid. You guys are so wonderful, thank you!Laura & Benn
Young Hip & Married are incredible!! We hired them for our elopement in Vancouver last month and they made every aspect of it honestly so enjoyable and easy. Erika Enns was our officiant and she was THE BEST, taking the little details of our relationship and bringing them into the ceremony which made it all the more special. Thank you so much Erika and team for helping us have our dream wedding day and for sharing it with us! If you’re getting married and looking for an incredible officiant, hire these guys!Mallory & Shane
My husband and I were married by Kadee and she was great! She worked with us beforehand to make our ceremony script more personal. She was warm and welcoming and kept us from feeling awkward or nervous at the actual ceremony too (even when we forgot our rings for a minute and a squirrel tried to attack our cake).Kim & Alistair
I 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
Peter was great!! He was very attentive and flexible. Peter was very accommodating as we were running a bit behind and had to change our elopement time. THANK YOU:)Louise & Rosemary
We 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!
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
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
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
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
Jane set the tone for the day. Inclusive, relaxed, funny, and warm; everything that we wanted for our day. Every guest commented on how great she was. Our prep was minimal and she understood our schedules and worked with us. I can’t thank Jane and Young Hip and Married enough for being a part of our day.Colleen & Dan
We couldn’t be happier with our experience with Young, Hip & Married. Shawn is extremely thorough and professional. He is easy to communicate with and perfectly captured the tone we wanted to set for our ceremony. Highly, highly recommended!Jillian Oliver
From the time I initially contacted Young, Hip and Married last year up to our wedding day we experienced nothing but the best from the whole team. Including several date changes due to the pandemic and deciding on a last minute intimate ceremony everyone was so lovely to deal with and not to mention prompt to reply to emails! You can tell they really love what they do and truly care about their clients. Denise helped make our day so special, her presence was calming upon arrival and her insight for our vows was just perfect.Amanda & Sal
Amazing to deal with. Brought ideas to the table we hadn’t thought of and recommended ideas.Avery & Danica
Energetic, fun and organized! We were more than impressed with our officiant from YHM.Erika & Kelbey
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
My wife and I had our ceremony January 20th 2018; it was nice and small. Jane officiated for us and was just an absolute pleasure! She made us feel very relaxed and happy, absolutely no pressure, exactly how we wanted our ceremony to go! Great services and highly recommended for anyone looking to get married on a smaller scale!! Thank you so much Jane and thank you Young Hip and Married!Colton McLaughlin
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
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
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
Excellent and amazing service! Couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Thank you again for everything!Tyler & Stephanie
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
It’s a tough decision picking your wedding officiant. We read lots of reviews online and came across Jane (who we hired to be our officiant), and boy did we make the right decision! Jane was so passionate about making our ceremony special, and was very supportive with our requests. Jane is also an incredible speaker. Over half of our wedding guests commented to us about our officiant’s incredible talent. We would highly recommend Jane to anyone that asks! Thanks!Jonah & Rachelle
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
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
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
- Thank you again for the most amazing ceremony! You were so so wonderful and everyone loved you!So lovely to meet you! Thanks for being part of of our day!Lucy & Freddy
- Initially in the deer in headlights phase of planning my wedding, I didn’t give a great deal of thought to who our officiant would be. Nor honestly did I think much about the words that person would say before our friends and family, though words are very important to me. Our wonderful wedding planner encouraged us to look into Young Hip & Married though, and I’m so grateful that she did. The sample ceremonies on their website had me absolutely touched and we soon connected with Lani.From the very first (zoom) meeting she was warm and delightful and engaged. In our wedding prep meeting she listened actively to our whole love story. She guided us through the process of preparing our ceremony and gave us tons of options to customize it to fit us. From the broad strokes of the structure of the ceremony and mood to the micro details of her script. At the rehearsal she wrangled our highly distractable wedding party with skill. At the wedding she inspired laughter and tears in all the best ways.Lani and Young Hip and Married helped absolutely make our day. If you’re considering working with them, absolutely pounce on that opportunity.Danny & Ian
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
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
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
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
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
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
Jane married us in a very intimate setting and I can’t say enough good things about her. She created an atmosphere where we were able to focus just on one another, and really kept it all about us. Thank you all at YHM for making our day perfect!Shawna & Noah
So happy I found Young Hip & Married. Jane (our officiant) was awesome! The ceremony was quick and sweet.Sarah M
Our officiant Jef was great! Most of our guests said it was the best ceremony they had ever been to. At one point, I dropped the ring (!!!) and Jef made an impromptu “no kicking motion” hockey joke that the crowd loved. Our only hesitation at first was the cost, but compared to other civil ceremonies we’ve been to, we think it was worth it.Michelle
We had such a good experience with Young Hip & Married for our wedding ceremony in Calgary. The communication with Danya was AMAZING; she set everything up on a short notice and promptly answered my emails, even nights and weekends. Our officiant, Sarah Kemmers, was super friendly, professional, and accommodating. She arrived early and had great suggestions on the perfect spot. We also had two witnesses that were very nice and snapped some nice photos of us. Thank you for helping make our wedding day so special 🙂Galina & Khairi
Amazing. Working with Young Hip and Married was so simple, and Chris-Ann was so compatible with our laid back style. We had so much fun working with her, and she gave us such a lovely ceremony script. We thought we would write our own vows, but ultimately decided that what she gave us to work with was so lovely we didn’t even need to! We highly recommend this service.Allison & Dwayne
Stephen Anderson was a wonderful officiant! My sister got married this weekend, and Stephen was the perfect fit for the small gathering we had at Lighthouse Park. He met us in the parking lot and we all walked down the trail together to the spot the couple had picked. At no point did we ever feel rushed. Stephen was was very personable, very well put together, and really made their ceremony effortless. He stood off to the side, which was much appreciated, so we could get some awesome photos of just the couple during their special moment. 10/10 would recommend!Natalie P
Could not be more happy with this service! We had multiple compliments from our guests about the quality of the officiant. Everyone thought that the officiant set the perfect tone for the rest of the evening.Evan & Anne
Shawn and the whole team have been amazing through this whole wedding journey. Everything was so thoroughly planned and executed. We couldn’t have asked for a better team to get us married. Everything from our first meeting to writing out the whole ceremony for our guests was all so wonderful. We wanted a light, simple, funny but sentimental ceremony and it’s exactly what we got. They were always available to answer any questions but text or email. Thank you to the amazing team and Erika for getting us married.Angela & Peter
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
My wife and I came across Hip, Young and Married via WeddingWire and we couldn’t be more pleased with the service. They offer multiple options of packages to help you prepare for the ceremony.
The staff is very friendly and engaged. Beth, our officiant, was amazing from the first zoom call all the way to the “I do’s”. Thank you!
