Young Hip & Married Officiant Lani Brunn marrying a couple in Vancouver

As a wedding officiant, I love to create space for celebration and ceremony that truly reflects my couples and who they are. I believe we are our best selves when love is at the centre. That is why officiating weddings is so special to me.

As your wedding officiant, I will guide you through the process, mentor you in writing your vows, create your perfect ceremony, and oversee your rehearsal and ceremony with joyful professionalism. My ultimate goal is to ensure that you feel relaxed and present for every moment of your ceremony.

But enough about me – I am here to bring your love story to life. I can’t wait to hear all about you and how you two met, the challenges you have conquered together, your proudest moments, and of course, why you decided to get married.

Together, we will create a ceremony that is just right and truly reflects your flavour, your journey and your commitment to each other. I look forward to meeting you!

Book with Lani

Every single person who attended our wedding took the time to personally tell us what a wonderful job our officiant did. Our guests (and us) were blown away with how eloquently and effortlessly Lani captured our personalities, our story and our love.

From the first day we met Lani she was exceptionally professional, friendly and completely accommodating to any requests we had along the way. We are so grateful to Lani for helping give us a wedding ceremony that we will forever cherish!

Over and above all my expectations. They were able to answer all of my questions and helped us to make a truly unique and personal wedding experience. We loved the entire experience with YH&M and I have recommended them to many of my friends.

From the very first (zoom) meeting, Lani 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.

Our officiant was Lani and she was absolutely amazing!! My husband and I were both nervous about the ceremony but she kept it light and not too serious. She added some humorous moments that seemed to break up the seriousness. I also appreciated when she came up with some ideas (like having people introduce themselves to other they didn’t know prior to the ceremony) that were different. She spent a lot of time getting to know us and writing a totally personalized ceremony. I would definitely recommend!

Lani's Story

I live in East Vancouver with my husband Noah and our cat Ernie. Originally from Saskatchewan, I found my way to the City of Vancouver a few years back, and it has been an adventure ever since.

When I’m not creating ceremonies, you can find me hiking around Lynn Valley, paddle boarding Alouette River, or volunteering with my favourite non-profit organizations.

I am an advocate for affordable housing, I cannot get enough of my electric bicycle and I love to try out new restaurants. There is just something magical about good food shared with good company.

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.

What a wedding!! I’ve had SO many people that night and even still now telling me HOW AMAZING our officiant was! Lani, you did such a great job that I can’t express the words! You made the best ceremony for us. It’s still a dream to be that has came to reality.

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.
