Young Hip & Married wedding officiant Shalom marrying a couple during a helicopter elopement

A wedding is all about celebrating your partnership, the love that you share, and your uniqueness as a couple. It’s a wonderful opportunity to share snippets of your story and include meaningful traditions to create a day that is truly you through and through.

I’ve learned that for marriage to be healthy and happy, it truly needs to be a partnership where each person supports, values, and cherishes the other and is dedicated to personal growth and reflection. My wish for you as you enter your marriage is a lifelong partnership filled with love, mutual support, understanding, thoughtfulness and plenty of laughter.

I love connecting with people and discovering the beauty and uniqueness of their stories. I can’t wait to work with you to create a ceremony that reflects your story, values, and essence as you enter your marriage together.

I am available to officiate in English and Spanish.

Carl and Yunier at their beach elopement with Young Hip & Married officiant Shalom

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!

Officiant Shalom during an elopement with Christy and Patrick on the beach

Do not pick anyone else to officiate your wedding! We picked the custom ceremony option Young Hip and Married offers and are so glad we did. The ceremony was the best part of the whole day as it went perfectly, was beautiful, and entirely ours.

Our officiant Shalom was a delight and so easy to work with. The vow writing class worked so well we actually got direct compliments on our vows saying they were the best many people had ever heard. Go with them, go with the custom option, take the time to do the damn class, it’s beyond worth it.

My wife and I had the privilege of having Shalom Wiebe as the officiant for our wedding. She took the time to write a beautiful custom script for us and took a keen interest to our unique expectations and hopes for the ceremony. She was considerate throughout the process and was a joy to work with.

On the actual wedding day, she ran the ceremony flawlessly and all our extended family members commented on how amazing she was. To anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding we would strongly recommend going with Shalom and Young Hip & Married.

Shalom's Story

As a social worker, I deeply appreciate hearing people’s stories and learning about what makes them click. I’ve also found a passion for facilitating special events and holding space for the sacred, the beautiful, and the profound.

Wedding officiating allows me to draw on my social work skills to get to know your story and craft a ceremony that reflects who you are and what you care about.

In addition to an officiant and a social worker, I’m also a therapeutic harpist. In my downtime, I love to explore local parks and beaches with my two young boys and hike through BC’s forests with friends.

We loved our experience with Young Hip and Married! We chose Shalom to officiate our wedding and she was amazing! So kind and helpful throughout the entire process and really listened to what we were looking for for our ceremony.

We had so many people tell us how much they loved the ceremony and the way Shalom told our story and we couldn’t have agreed more! She not only made us feel calm and excited about the ceremony (in the lead-up, at the rehearsal, and on the day) but made the entire experience feel so smooth, letting us just focus on taking in the moment.

Our ceremony was happy, quick (we wanted short and sweet), and with the perfect combination of laughter and beautiful “aww” moments. We can’t thank Shalom enough for the work she put into our day and for the absolutely wonderful delivery of our ceremony. It was everything we wanted and more!

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

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

Young Hip and Married connected us with Shalom, and I can’t imagine our day without her! She was calming, considerate and very respectful. It was wonderful working with her on our ceremony script leading up to the wedding, and we felt very supported and her guidance was impeccable. If you are looking for someone to bring love, care and attention to your script, Shalom is the one!
