I didn’t spend my childhood dreaming about my wedding, but as I have ventured through my own marriage, the importance of the wedding day keeps coming up. A wedding is so much more than just a good party and a beautiful dress! The vows a couple speaks to each other are so important. Twenty years into my own marriage, I think I realize now more than ever the weight of those vows.
My husband, Matt, and I have been married for twenty years. In that time, life has gotten busy and our kids have gotten older so squeezing in dates and time together isn’t always easy. But it’s so important to make that time. Sometimes we have to remember to slow down and just enjoy the small moments together. Making our marriage a priority is never something we regret.
When I’m not officiating, I can be found working at a small unconventional church in Abbotsford with my husband, dreaming of my next travel destination (Croatia and Greece are at the top of my list!) or just hanging out with my family. My favourite jobs ever are being a wife and a mother.
I absolutely love connecting with people, hearing their stories and finding the gold in them. I want to help couples create a ceremony that is creative, intimate and specific to who they are and what they stand for.
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
We chose Young Hip & Married based on reviews and we are so happy that we did! From the beginning, they were so amazing to deal with. Erika was our officiant and she exceeded our expectations in every way possible. She gave us the exact ceremony we wanted which included our guests, giving thanks to our parents and was all about us. Erika was in constant contact with us from the very beginning. She was friendly, prompt with her responses and helped us through the entire process. We have had so many people come to us saying they have never seen a ceremony like ours and that Erika was amazing. Thank you so much Young Hip & Married, and an even bigger thanks to Erika for giving us the best ceremony we could have asked for!!Kendrianne
Our officiant Erika was on time, professional and very pleasant to talk to. She understood what we wanted really quickly and completed one of the most important pieces of the whole wedding perfectly. Would definitely recommend her.Bruce & Amy
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
Thank you, thank you, thank you!! We truly can’t thank Erika and YH&M enough for all they have done for our special day! From the moment we got in touch with YH&M, they have been nothing but helpful and professional, and got us in touch with the amazing Erika! Erika truly listened to our story and seemed excited to be able to retell it, and you could see it in her work. She told our love story as if it were that of a movie and engrossed the whole room making them feel as though they were living our story with us rather than listening from a far. Leaving our guests all complimenting her and our romantic, “perfectly you” ceremony! Erika was eager to help and make any additions we had; she was friendly, helpful and professional! And in regards to our ever changing wedding due to COVID, YH&M as well as Erika never wavered in their help and support! We are so happy with our wedding and thank YH&M so much!!Angelica & Ryan
We 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
We knew Young Hip and Married would be the best choice after watching my sister have such a positive experience at her own wedding two years previous – we were lucky enough to get the same officiant, Erika! The entire experience from the initial emails, to the video chats with Jackie-Deane and Erika, to our actual wedding was such a delight. Everyone was patient, understanding, and flexible. Our needs were acknowledged and met with the upmost positivity. The day of our wedding was absolutely beautiful – Erika really engaged the guests, and kept the ceremony light and fun, which was the exact atmosphere that we were looking for. We cannot suggest anyone else other than YH&M to do your wedding; you will not regret it as we certainly did not! Thanks again to everyone on the team who ensured we had an amazing day!!!Josephine & Jeremy
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
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
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
We would HIGHLY recommend Young Hip and Married. They set us up with our officiant, Erika Enns, for our wedding at the Fraser River Lodge in Aggasiz. Erika was communicative, asked all the right questions and was flexible when we had to change our date due to COVID restrictions. She created a beautiful ceremony for us that was customized with our love story and worked with us to make us feel comfortable. We received a lot of feedback that the ceremony was so “us” and that it was “perfect.” We agree! Thanks to Erika and Young Hip and Married!Keely & Mike
The Young Hip and Married team is fantastic. They are easy to communicate with and quick to respond. We were paired with Erika and she did an amazing job. She took the time to get to know us and she was open to all our suggestions. We had an small ceremony with family and close friends. Erika fit in perfectly and made our ceremony feel very personal and very us. Can’t recommend Erika and the Young Hip Married team enough.Lexie & Mick
Young Hip and Married was the icing on the cake for our day – they made it simple yet special from the first time I emailed them to the day of the ceremony! Would highly recommended them to anyone!Emma & Braeden
Erika was spectacular to work with as our wedding officiant. She is kind and friendly and helped us create the wedding ceremony of our dreams! Intimate and sentimental, with a hint of humour to take the edge off. Thank you so much for being so incredible to work with!Samantha & Jesse
Wedding by Erika was precise, and she came on time to the wedding site, communication was very great and same with the organisation. Erika made our day and the site was very easy to use; whenever you wanted to communicate plus the quick response to messages, anytime you are lost on anything.Austin & Rita
One the best choices made as part of our wedding planning process. Erika. Is. AMAZING! Super friendly and charismatic! We opted for the Custom and Creative Ceremony option and, while it was a bit on the pricey side, it was worth every penny with many of our guests saying they loved the ceremony as it was unique and different from so many weddings they have attended in the past.Don & Rebecca
- We have nothing but wonderful things to say about Young Hip & Married. Erika performed our ceremony and it was beautiful. She was a pleasure to work with from the start to the finish. The ceremony was personalized and exactly what we wanted. Highly recommend these wonderful people to be a part of your special day!Erika, we can’t thank you enough for the beautiful ceremony you created for us! We’ve had so many comments about the lovely ceremony and the presence you created. And you were an absolute pleasure to work with. Thanks for making it so personal and special.Justine & Hatem
- 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
Thank you SO much for your attention to detail and sense of humour, you got us so well. It was really fun having you part of it and literally wouldn’t change a thing! You adapted your script to suit us and I loved it, you made us laugh too, love that even more!Cassandra & Trevor
It’s been a few weeks since the wedding, but everything happened so fast, so it’s taken much longer to process everything! Matt and I are still in complete awe. Our wedding day was more than what I imagined it to be and it turned out to be the most loving and beautiful day in our lives.
Thank you so, so much for being part of it and making sure it was perfect. Even when my mom decided to answer the phone (lol I’ll always look back at that moment and laugh!) and when my family rolled in late, you kept your composure, continued on and made the ceremony seamless. It was dreamy, personal yet not cheesy – exactly how we wanted. You really made this process super easy for us – thank you for being so accommodating and easy to work with!
We look back and everything we invested in was so worth it! We have nothing but fond memories with the best group of people. Thank you for everything you’ve done for us! We are so grateful that you were part of the best day of our lives.Viv & Matt
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
Hitting speed-bumps are a natural and sometimes common occurrence when planning a wedding, but our officiant Erika and the entire team at Young Hip and Married, really went the extra mile to take care of us! Erika was unbelievably amazing! Personable, professional, and prompt. She took the time to really get to know us and made sure that our ceremony was the best representation of us as a couple. The best part was the love our friends and family expressed afterwards for the presentation and delivery of our story – some friends even left with the intention of hiring YH&M as one of their vendors! Our only wish would be to have had Erika stay for the reception for a celebratory drink for making our day perfect! Thank you Erika and YH&M – you’re the best!
Erika, we wanted to reach out to you to thank you for doing such an amazing job for us and in such a short amount of time! We honestly had multiple friends and family come up to us afterwards and say how great of a job you did and how much they liked you. After the ceremony, one of the couples even took note of YH&M because they thought you did such a good job and so they might want to go with you for their wedding!Sean & Kelsey
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
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
We both disliked the idea of a big wedding. YH&M provided us with all that we could ever need in a ceremony. Officiant Erika and photographer Tanja were both very professional. We had to hike less than 20mins to our destination (note: for a tiny extra travel fee) however overall worth it compared to paying thousands had we gone the “traditional route.”Jen & Eric
The team at Young Hip & Married were such a pleasure to work with! Erika, our officiant, and Rebecca in customer relations were quick to respond to all our questions about the big day and made us feel prepared and at ease! My husband and I loved every second of our special day and we highly recommend Young Hip & Married!!Kinga & Nicolas
I used YOUNG HIP AND MARRIED, to help assign an officiant for my elopement wedding. It was short notice and they were able to assign a wonderful officiant named Erika to come to our wedding. I really liked how efficient the company is; their main contact who organised everything with me always was available for any questions or problems that arose via text. Also being not super religious, I found the marriage vows the officiant wrote for us were perfect and did not focus on any religious aspects. Everything went smoothly, the price we paid for this company was very suitable. I would highly recommend it to young couples who want to take the hassle out of arranging an officiant and a photographer because the YH&M team will arrange it for you as part of their package (Depending on which package you select).Tina & Stephen
Erika was awesome 😊 easy going and made everything very comfortable 👌🏼Nikki & Dennis
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 had easy communication and a great wedding. Our officiant was excellent and our photographer took some beautiful photos. Excellent all around.Charlotte & Matthew
- 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
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 had a wonderful experience with YH&M! They were communicative from the start up until the big day. They had great suggestions for locations, pictures and vows. Overall, a great experience and would recommend to our friends!Megan & Jeremy
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
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
Friends of ours used YH&M a few years back and we absolutely loved the ceremony they put together for them. So when my hubby proposed of course one of the first vendors I reached out to was YH&M. We were paired up with Erika to officiate our ceremony and immediately clicked with her our first FaceTime chat. From day one she was very involved with the planning, kind, and very responsive. She made the process easy and fun and we enjoyed working with her along the way! Come our big day that just passed (September 2021), she created the perfect ceremony for us. She added humour, emotion and life into our ceremony as she shared our story with our friends and family. I would absolutely recommend Erika/ YH&M for your ceremony!
Our ceremony was perfect and Erika was just an absolute delight to have marry us. Our guests were so touched and entertained by your words Erika, and Colton and I felt the day flowed so perfectly thanks to you. I will forever recommend YH&M whenever anyone asks me for officiant recommendations (actually even if they don’t ask LOL!)Cassandra & Colton
We had the joy of being married by Erika from Young Hip & Married. She made everything so easy and was an absolute doll from the first day we met her. Even leading up to meeting Erika and deciding she was the perfect fit, Young Hip & Married made everything very simple and were so quick to respond to all my questions. Once we met Erika and she began her process of writing our ceremony she went above and beyond everything we imagined to make this so personal. Her words were beautiful and she made everything about us and our love just as we asked. Even after the wedding, Young Hip & Married showed how efficient they are by submitting all of the paperwork so quickly making us receive our marriage license in just under two weeks which we were amazed by. So many thank yous and so much love towards Erika and Young Hip & Married.Alisha & Colin
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
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
My wife and I used Erika as our officiant, and she couldn’t have been better. I rate 5/5 easily, and would recommend her services to anyone. She was professional, friendly, and really made our ceremony special. Thank you!Irek Piekarski
We originally wanted to elope but YHM had an option of elopement with 20 guests and photographer. We are very happy we went with this as our families wanted to be witnesses. Both the photographer (Sarah) and the officiant (Erika) were great! There were some last minute changes and they were very flexible. Definitely recommend this company.Linsey & Nicholas
- My husband and I were looking for someone special who really understood us to officiate our wedding, and we definitely found that in Young Hip and Married. Our officiant was Erika, and she went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and relaxed with everything, while also having a lot of fun. We would highly recommend them to anyone who are looking at getting an amazing officiant!Cassidy & Jack
We hired YH&M for our wedding on April 25 2021. It was a super small wedding due to covid. We also had to reschedule a couple times due to this as well, but YH&M was understanding with the changes. Erika was a wonderful officiant, super professional, we stumbled on words due to crying through the whole thing, but she kept us on track. Before the wedding she had sent us different examples of vows before we settled on what we wanted. Excellent job all around.Janessa & James
We can’t thank you enough for making our day so special. You are a Rock Star! Absolutely everyone commented about how beautiful the ceremony was (and we totally lucked out with the weather).
Thank you for coming to check on me also! I had everything planned to the minute but my dress ended up being more complicated than I gave it credit for. After you came back I went into high gear, had a few laughs and away we went. It was a perfect day and just what we wanted. Thank you for everything and a lovely ceremony!Larissa & John
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
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
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
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
Young Hip and Married were great from start to finish, especially our officiant Erika. We honestly can’t thank her enough! Any questions we had she answered right away and made our special day extra special. You were so patient with us and really made us feel comfortable from start to end.John & Kassie
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
- Ron and I feel that words can truly not express our gratitude for you in making our day truly special. We both feel so lucky to have had you officiate our intimate wedding — you exceeded our expectations, chatting with you over the phone beforehand made a huge difference. You were so efficient in coordinating and leading us throughout the ceremony. Thank you for being so accommodating when it came to our ceremony and readings!Ron and I are so, so grateful that you officiated our union so beautifully. Thank you from our hearts!Maria & Ron
Erika did a wonderful job as our officiant. She got to know us and put together a wonderful speech on our special day. Very professional, reliable, and a pleasure to work with. We strongly recommend this company.Brianne & Bryan
We felt the ceremony went great! You were a great guide and we felt you were a seamless part of our day!Stella & Igor
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
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
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
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
In Sept 2022, when we decided we wanted to elope in Nov 2022, we had emailed a few places and YH&M was one of the places that immediately reached out within 24 hours and was able to set up a time to have a call with me. Needless to say, I thought we weren’t going to be able to get married on the day we wanted but had hoped for the best with the short timeframe given. We all know in the wedding industry, you are booking dates way in advance.
On the day of my call time with Danya, I had actually forgot to reach out and Danya was kind enough to reach out again if we were still on (I really appreciated this as a busy working mom!). YH&M came through and was able to make our dreams come true to get married on the date we wanted in November. From the moment I had my phone call with Danya to coordinating with Erika who was marrying us, along with Amber who was going to be our photographer – also set up by YH&M! It was by far the easiest to deal with all in one place.
If you are looking to elope, please look no further because the YH&M team covers it all from the booking, your officiant, and helicopter elopement (what we chose!). Thank you again to the YH&M team, we are so happy that you were part of our special day!!Christina & Todd
We have nothing but good things to say about Erika and the staff at YH&M! They were able to work with us and advise on the difficult procedures to do with COVID restrictions. When our original officiant with them had to drop out due to unforeseen circumstances, we were set up with a new and also great replacement immediately.
Erika and the YH&M team were great and helped us with the replanning of our wedding during the COVID pandemic. She tailored a wonderful ceremony for us, and ensured that we were able to have a safe wedding.Cierra & Matt
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
I was referred to Young Hip & Married by my amazing photographer. YH&M were super friendly, quick & responsive to all of my questions. We got Erika Enns as our officiant & we couldn’t be any happier. She worked with us to make some small tweaks for the script to make it fit ‘us’ better. She even made recommendations for places for our engagement photos & took the time to get to know us on a more personal note.
On the day of, she met us early in the parking lot & we got to walk down to our ceremony spot together. Erika took her time & let us enjoy the moment knowing that it’s passing by so quickly. Erika was was very loving & personable it really made our ceremony smooth & effortless. Would recommend Erika for sure!Leslie & Tony
We are so happy we had Erika Enns from Young Hip and Married officiate our wedding. We knew right away when we met Erika that it was a good fit and she made the whole process easy and enjoyable. We loved how she told our story and helped us choose what type of vows we wanted to go with, etc. Several guests commented on how much they liked her and how she helped create the perfect ceremony. Thank you so much Erika!!Jaime & Colin
We had such an amazing experience working with young hip & married. Especially our officiant Erika! Despite not being able to meet prior to our wedding due to Covid-19, the email communication was very prompt! I cant tell you the amount of times I bugged Rebecca and Erika with questions/changing of time line. They both were so great throughout the entire process. Erika was so kind, funny and all around a good time. Our ceremony was short and sweet just how we wanted it, in that short time of talking/meeting Erika my husband and I both felt so comfortable!! Not everyday you meet a “stranger” and feel so comfortable around them. To anyone who is looking for a fantastic officiant I would highly recommend working with young hip & married, especially Erika!Tennille & Conrad
We would highly recommend Young Hip & Married to anyone who is looking to elope in BC! Booking was a breeze, the team promptly responded to any questions we had and they were a delight to deal with. We are over the moon with the photos we have received so far, and we received our filed marriage certificate in a few weeks. Due to the weather, we had to change the location we were hoping to get married at multiple times on the day. Both Erica (photographer) and Erika (officiant) dealt with our last minute panic with a smile and showed nothing but professionalism. If you are looking to elope in BC, there isn’t any better option then YH&M… it is as simple as that 🙂Kieran & Hannah
I’m still dreaming about our wedding day 2 weeks ago. The ceremony was perfect! Erika did an amazing job since the beginning by having great communication with us. Her speech was touching and joyful. I loved it and everyone else did too. 10000% recommendedZarela & Dwayne
We were planning to do a small yet special ceremony! As we were researching ideas, we came across Young Hip & Married! And I am extremely glad we found them! We did a helicopter elopement with Erika as our officiant and Erica as our photographer. The whole experience was so amazing, and exceeded our expectations by far. We couldn’t be happier with our ceremony. Everybody at Young Hip & Married did a great job! The helicopter ride was very beautiful and we landed by a beautiful lake and got married there! Looking at the photos and videos, it is everything we wanted! We recommend Young Hip & Married to everyone who is looking for a unique and romantic experience for their ceremony.Mehrnoosh & Zephyr
We had 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 used Young, Hip and Married for our officiant service. Erika was amazing and really took time to make the ceremony very personalized. She had multiple conversations with us to get to know us individually and as a couple. She also reached out to friends and family to get different perspectives. The whole team made the process very comfortable. I would absolutely recommend using them.Colton & Cassandra
We used them through our Adventure Elopement package with Will Pursell Photography. She did a great job. And even though we had to change a location about a week or so before our wedding, due to extra covid restrictions about travel within health regions, she was understanding and polite and it all went very smooth! Would recommend them for sure!Crystal & Tyler
- We used Young Hip & Married for our wedding and couldn’t be happier with the service they provided. Erika worked with us to tailor our ceremony to be personal, funny, and engaging. We won’t need to hire them again, but anyone looking for a company that puts you in the spotlight at your wedding, and does so with care and attention, then look no further!Erika, we’re still on cloud nine from it all! It couldn’t have gone any better and we’re still feeling all the love from our family and friends 🙂Thank you so much for an awesome ceremony! The words, delivery, planning, everything was spot on and really made us feel like we were part of something special.Paul & Keara
- 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
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
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
We recently had Erika as our celebrant and it was by far the best decision we made. Erika completely understood us and customized our ceremony. So many of our guests told us their favourite part of the wedding was the ceremony. She was equal parts funny and emotional and captured us so perfectly. In addition to the fact she’s an amazing celebrant, it’s so obvious she loves what she does and is an amazing person. I just wish we could do it all over again!Erika & Michael
Erika was amazing. She knocked our ceremony out of the park, it was so special.Maegen & Marc
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
Erika – thank you so much!! You were wonderful, and so many people told us that ours was one of the best ceremonies they’d been to.Kathryn & Neil
YH&M made everything easy and stress free! The officiant and photographer were both amazing. No complaints whatsoever!Laura & Christopher
We had Erika as our officiant for our wedding in Sep 2022. It was a pleasure to work with Erika and her friendly personality and willingness to help us in any way possible made our wedding ceremony planning process easy and stress-free. Erika and the YH&M team were very responsive and very efficient. Erika did a wonderful job and the ceremony was just as relaxed and light-hearted as we had hoped for! We are so grateful and appreciative for the wonderful ceremony that Erika officiated for us. Thank you Erika for helping us create a beautiful and memorable ceremony!Natesah & Samuel
Erika at Young Hip and Married went above and beyond to help make our day magical! She got to know us, captured our story and gave our guests a ceremony to remember! Thank you, Erika 🙂Kirsten & Brian
We had a small wedding ceremony in Stanley Park set up by Pop Up Weddings and we loved our officiant, Erika. Shawn set us up for success with tips and pointers and an outline prior to the big day so we could write up our vows. I’ve also seen them in action at a friend’s wedding and highly recommend.Brenna le Nobel
This was, by far, the best avenue we could’ve taken for our wedding! Erika was an exceptional officiant who kept in contact with us from day one, made sure everything we wanted was included in the ceremony, and even made it as minimalist as possible for my husband when it came to his speaking parts! Our wedding was a surprise, so no one knew it was happening, and Erika blended in with the crowd with ease and played her part perfectly, even with a few wondering stares! We are so, so, happy with Young Hip and Married, and would recommend them in a heartbeat to personalize your wedding and make it a truly special day!Eleni & Regan
We cannot recommend YH&M enough, and in particular our absolutely amazing officiant Erika Enns. From the administration, to the owners, to our officiant, everyone was quick to respond, invested in our vision, and most importantly kind. We were one of the couples affected by the Sea to Sky Gondola, and they went above and beyond to ensure our officiant could make our new location for both our rehearsal and wedding. Our ceremony was personal and special, with all our guests saying it was the best they had seen!Crystal & Dave
Erika was our officiant and I cannot say enough good things about her; she was incredible. She made everything so comfortable and easy for everyone it felt like I had known her forever. She was extremely prompt with communication and any edits I had to the writing were changed immediately without any problems. She was there for the rehearsal which was wonderful and was able to tell everyone where to go and run though it all which was a huge relief. The writing was wonderful – short and sweet but was also packed with a ton of emotion and meaning. She really took our story and made it personal (which was exactly what we asked for). Everyone was laughing and crying and everyone had something good to say about Erika. Highly recommend to anyone.Maria & Nigel
Young Hip 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 used Young Hip and Married to plan our small wedding ceremony. They were easy to talk to and very helpful. We had to postpone our wedding once due to covid and they were very accommodating, our photographer has to cancel the day before due to person reasons and they were able to find us a new one right away. Thanks so much, will definitely be recommending this company.Sierra & Michael
- Erika, you were wonderful! You displayed a genuine interest in our love story and helped us craft a beautiful wedding ceremony that was cherished by all. The rehearsal was great because it gave us a sense of what was going to happen the day of, and everything really came together with your amazing help!Your warmth and energy also helped make our special day such a positive one that we will cherish forever. We cannot thank you enough!Will & Vikki Greenlaw
I discovered Young Hip and Married when I was searching for places and ways to elope! Ironically, the day we decided to get married in Vancouver (the day before we were leaving on an Alaskan cruise), Tara had emailed me to see if I had any questions! It was fate! Our fairytale started right then!! Erika was an amazing officiant, walking us through the whole process!! She did an awesome job, finding a great spot in Stanley Park to marry us!! Victoria was our photographer and she, too, made us feel so comfortable and special!!! Thanks for your professionalism and detail!! We could not have been happier with our “Young, Hip, and Crazy” elopement (7 hours after flying in from Chicago)!!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!Barb & Ross
Strongly recommend! Great experience, very in depth asking lots of questing and really getting to know the couple. Fantastic job!Shelby & Chris
WOW! Professional, personalized, individualized, and exactly what you want during your ceremony.
Our wesding officiant, Erika, started with meeting with us. Then she emailed us with a questionnaire to make a personalized script for the ceremony. Not only was it amazing, but she even reached out to the wedding party to gather some words for the ceremony too.
On the day of, Erika was spot on with presentation and keeping to schedule. She was even flexible with my request for a certain song to be played as the ceremony was coming to a close. Flexible, check!
And if you are asking for price? Absolutely it was affordable. It is based on what you are looking for and how much time you will take. I would recommend Young Hip & Married over the government officiants anyday.
Thank you, Erika. You made it a ceremony that guests were raving about and a ceremony that they listened to every word of.James Van
We loved working with Young Hip & Married! Everyone we met along the way was kind and helpful, and I truly felt that they wanted us to find the very best fit of officiant for us.
And they did! Erika was amazing. She is warm and friendly and worked hard to make sure she captured the vibe we wanted for our wedding. We were looking for short and sweet, but still meaningful and heartfelt. Her words were inspiring and funny, and her delivery was wonderful. I definitely felt a calmness having her there.
The whole team delivered exactly what we wanted, and made sure we understood the process and what was needed of us every step of the way. Super easy to work with and would definitely recommend!Laura & Zac
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
Erika, thanks so much for everything! You guys made the whole experience exactly as relaxed and beautiful as we hoped it would be.Dannie & Lyle
- 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
I enjoyed your officiating. I wished that I could have thanked you in person after the ceremony. You were able to give everyone in the room an excellent idea of the relationship between Mark and Rebecca. You described them both so well. Thanks so much for making this event and last summer’s event so wonderful!Carolyne (Mother of the Groom)
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
- 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
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
Dealing with YHM was seamless and easy! We did a last minute (10 days from decision to wedding day) small elopement ceremony and were so thankful that YHM could accommodate our short timeline. Rebecca was so quick and helpful at getting the admin pieces organized and was easy to communicate with. Last minute time changes to our ceremony were accommodated and we were never made to feel like our requests were unreasonable. Erika, our officiant, was responsive, flexible, organized, and patient. We were able to personalize our ceremony to something that felt meaningful to us. Overall, I would definitely recommend YHM to anyone looking for officiant services on their wedding day. Thank you for helping make this wedding happen on a short timeline!Joti & Mike
- 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
