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.
Erika and the team at Young Hip & Married were excellent. Highly recommended.Jeremy Clark
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
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
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
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
We had an excellent experience with Young Hip & Married, who facilitated our intimate ceremony even whilst everything was disrupted by COVID. The communication was great throughout, and our officiant Erika really took the time to get to know us and make our ceremony special. Would definitely recommend!Giles & Alecia
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 husband and I were lucky enough to work with Erika as our officiant. Her and the Young, Hip & Married team did such a good job with making the process run smoothly and were so helpful along the way. Erika came up with such a beautiful ceremony speech that was personalized and made it such a memorable moment in our special day to us and our guests.
Erika made the whole process so comfortable and natural for the both of us. Her communication with us from the very beginning all the way up to the wedding day was great. We feel very lucky to have had her as our officiant on our special day! We can’t thank you enough Erika!Mikayla & Max
YH&M was so great. The team was super helpful and supportive throughout the pandemic ups and downs, including numerous date changes. We took Shawn’s really beneficial vow writing course, and Erika, our officiant, was so lovely, organized, and helped create a beautiful ceremony. Can’t recommend them enough!Kate & Raul
We are so happy that we went with YH&M for our wedding. The ceremony is such a special part and the ability to have an officiant that helps tailor the ceremony to who you are as a couple with the ability to say what you want to say is important. Erika Enns was our officiant and we knew from our first meeting that she was perfect for us. She was so easy to talk to, super friendly and we loved her energy. Being able to work on a wedding script with her was easy and all the tips and links she provided were really helpful when it came to making our ceremony personal to us. Thank you for being a part of our special day!Felicia & Ryan
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
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
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
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
Our experience working with YHM was fantastic, really uncomplicated and straightforward administratively. Erika Enns was our officiant and I would highly recommend her – she has a very natural and calming presence and excellent delivery. Thank you for making our day so special!Ilana & Neil
Erika was our officiant from YH&M and she was an absolute dream to work with. She is personally all kinds of awesome, and then her professional expertise is what you really need for your special day. She put together a very special script for us to review a couple months before the wedding, which was greatly appreciated since the month before the wedding is stressful for other details. She did a great job directing our wedding rehearsal, and on the wedding day, even guests complimented her saying how great she was at subtly stepping out of photos during key moments of the ceremony. Erika, you are amazing! Wishing you all the best.C & D
Erika Enns officiated our wedding ceremony on July 22, 2023 and she couldn’t have captured my husband and I any better! She really took the time to get to know us and our story and created a personalized ceremony just for us. I can’t recommend YH&M or Erika enough!Laura & Gabe
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 chose Young Hip & Married based on reviews and we are so happy that we did! From the beginning, they were so amazing to deal with. Erika was our officiant and she exceeded our expectations in every way possible. She gave us the exact ceremony we wanted which included our guests, giving thanks to our parents and was all about us. Erika was in constant contact with us from the very beginning. She was friendly, prompt with her responses and helped us through the entire process. We have had so many people come to us saying they have never seen a ceremony like ours and that Erika was amazing. Thank you so much Young Hip & Married, and an even bigger thanks to Erika for giving us the best ceremony we could have asked for!!Kendrianne
We 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
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
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 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
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
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 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 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
Erika was our officiant. She was wonderful to work with. Very professional, responds quick and is very flexible and giving with her time. Highly recommend!Metica & Aristotle
These guys are the best! They know what great customer service is and they execute on it every single time. I got the rockin wedding package and they let me customize our ceremony 100%. Can’t say enough good things about these guys. I had Erika for my officiant. She’s just the loveliest person and is a truly talented officiant. I love the way she writes.Gina & Brett
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
Very professional and knowledgeable. They guided us through this event and we’d be happy to recommend them to anyone.Vanessa & James
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
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
Dealing with Young Hip & Married was great. They found the perfect fit officiant for us and Erika was amazing. We were wanting a quick and efficient ceremony and Erika delivered. While still making it personal and having our story to tell, she 10000% delivered. Thank you so much Erika for making our wedding so special!Janine & Hussain
- 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
- 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
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
We will recommend Erika from YH&M until the ends of the earth! After only a 2-hour coffee date with (us over a year before our wedding date), she wrote a ceremony script that seemed like she’s known us for years. We were able to collaborate on the script and make any changes we needed, and Erika offered us lots of different options for vows, ring exchanges and readings so that we could pick the ones that suited us the best. Our guests have raved about how personal and special our ceremony was ever since.
Erika was quick to respond to emails and was super flexible when we had to postpone our wedding due to Covid – she even wrote an abridged version of our ceremony for our elopement! Everything at YH&M was so smooth and stress-free, the team was easy to communicate with, made getting matched with Erika a breeze and were there to support us through the stressful postponement (twice) of our wedding day. The money spent on YH&M was by far the best choice at our wedding and we would do it over and over again.Rebecca & Mark
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
This post is long over due, but here it is! I want to give a huge shout out to Erika, our officiant who went above and beyond to make my wedding happen. We were originally meant to get married on March 21, 2020 but that was the week everything was shutting down due to Covid-19. We had to cancel our big events that very week and we were unsure as to whether we could even continue with our smaller events. It was definitely stressful. So we called Erika to ask her if she was available earlier and she said she was. On March 16 (5 days earlier), Erika came to our house and made our ceremony happen. There were only 5 of us (me, my husband, Erika, her mom and friend as two witnesses) in our living room. Now it’s 5 months later and I am so happy that we made the decision that we did. I want to thank Erika for being so professional and so amazing. I would recommend Young Hip & Married and especially Erika!! Thank you again for making one of the most important days so special.Sabina & Joe
- 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
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 found YHM on a Google search, anxious to text a random name on the BC government commissioner web page. I found them through their inclusivity in the photos on their site, and stayed for how responsive they were. From the first email, YHM were kind, excited, and professional — happy to give information, to find out more about me and my partner, and make sure everything went as perfect as they could! Erika Enns was our wedding commissioner, and she was so sweet and adorable! Thank you so much for your work, your words, and even your smile!Jessica & Courtney
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
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
Erika was the PERFECT person to lead our wedding ceremony. From the moment I met her, her warm and engaging nature made me feel comfortable and at ease. After just one coffee visit and a short intake form, Erika created a draft ceremony script that was as if she had known Gary and I our whole lives. During the ceremony, she struck the perfect balance between having us and our guests in sentimental tears and light-hearted laughs, which is exactly what we wanted. Our wedding involved the fusion of Western and Sikh cultures, and Erika created a ceremony that honoured our parents and our backgrounds in a unique and perfect way, and gave us words of wisdom to remember as we move on in our marriage together. I cry every time I think of our ceremony and how perfect it was. Thank you for being such an important part of the start of our new lives together.Jessica & Gary
- We 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
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
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
Erika, you were an amazing officiant and we we’re so happy you were the one to officiate our marriage! You were so accommodating due to the weather and the schedule changes and still provided us with a special ceremony that didn’t feel rushed. You really helped validate our vows and unite us as one and shared a sense of humour with the sea planes going by! We wouldn’t have had it any other way! Thank you for creating a moment in time that we will never forget! You are the best!!Sarah & Joe
We had an great experience dealing with Young Hip & Married for our wedding. We had Erika as our officiant and she was amazing.Alma & Colin
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 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
Erika is so amazing! She took the time to get to know us to understand what we want. She respected our decisions and was always willing to help, which made the process total hassle free. Thank you Erika!Echo & Roy
- 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
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
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
One of the best decisions we made for our wedding (Sept 15th, 2018) was hiring YHM…Erika was professional, thoughtful, kind, patient, generous with her expertise and spirit and powerfully eloquent. Not only was she able to guide us throughout the process but she also found a beautiful way to incorporate our two different cultures and families into the ceremony. She knew exactly how to take our vision and manifest it into action and in such a calm and grounding way. She gave us the peace we needed to just take in our day. Everything was perfect, due in large part to her hard work. We cannot recommend YHM enough.Ryna & Sean
- 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
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
Such a great business to work with. They cater to you, by making your ceremony exactly how you dream of it. We are so pleased to have gotten to work with Erika. She made it feel so personal and stress free! Saying my vows in front of people absolutely scared me, but she made me feel so comfortable. So easy to work with.Tasia & Kaleb
- 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
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
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
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
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
Young Hip & Married came recommended to us by family who are located in BC and had used them for their elopement. They praised how amazing they were to deal with and how great it was that they took care of everything. Being based in Saskatchewan proved to be no hurdle or barrier to amazing customer service from beginning to end, suggesting great locations for our elopement in BC and helping with anything from what we would need to get married within city limits with links to everything and all of the things you’d never think to ask. Danya was great to deal with from start to finish.
Our officiant Erika was absolutely phenomenal. She put together an amazing ceremony for us and thought of so many things we wouldn’t think to consider even down to sneaking out of frame before the “I Do” so that we had an amazing photo of our first kiss. She was super accommodating, thoughtful and considerate throughout the entire experience.
Erica was an amazing photographer and helped my husband and I through the entire session as a couple who have never had professional photos done. She had an amazing eye for great shots and was an absolute joy to spend our time with.
I cannot recommend Young Hip and Married enough. They were absolutely amazing! If you’re thinking of eloping, going with YH&M is an absolute no brainer! <3Holly & Jesse
We had easy communication and a great wedding. Our officiant was excellent and our photographer took some beautiful photos. Excellent all around.Charlotte & Matthew
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
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
- 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
We recently had Erika as our celebrant and it was by far the best decision we made. Erika completely understood us and customized our ceremony. So many of our guests told us their favourite part of the wedding was the ceremony. She was equal parts funny and emotional and captured us so perfectly. In addition to the fact she’s an amazing celebrant, it’s so obvious she loves what she does and is an amazing person. I just wish we could do it all over again!Erika & Michael
Shawn 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
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
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
Couldn’t have asked for a smoother process. I got the Elopement & Photography Plus package and everyone from the officiant to our photographer was absolutely wonderful! Highly recommend their services.Ashly & Dustin
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
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
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
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 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
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 wanted to start by extending the biggest, heartfelt thank you to you and the Young Hip and Married team for making our day so special and magical. Erika, you did an outstanding job as our officiant. We were so thrilled with the ceremony and how comfortable you made us both feel. It was definitely the highlight of our day and we’ve had so many friends and family members raving about it. A few of the words that keep being repeated to us: magical, enchanting, authentic, intimate, funny, beautiful, and an incredible representation of you two as a couple. And we couldn’t agree more!Rachel & Adam
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
My husband and I recently got married and our officiant, Erika, was amazing. She made the process so easy and we felt very comfortable and relaxed at our wedding. All of our guests loved her and thought our ceremony was really fun and beautiful. Young Hip and Married is an awesome business and I highly recommend them.Sadie & Isidoro
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
Erika was incredible, welcoming and attentive to our needs. She really rounded out our ceremony well! Everyone loved her!!Jade & Fred
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
YH&M made everything easy and stress free! The officiant and photographer were both amazing. No complaints whatsoever!Laura & Christopher
Erika and the team at Young Hip and Married helped us make the most out of our Covid restricted wedding. Right from the start they helped us navigate what we could do and helped make our day special. Would definitely recommend 🙂Stephanie & Matthew
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 can’t thank you enough for marrying us! You helped to make our special day so perfect and we’re so grateful to be married by you.
This whole experience from planning and communicating with you and YH&M, to getting married by you, has been so easy and we will definitely be recommending you and YH&M to all our friends and family! Everyone loved how intimate and perfect the ceremony was.
Thank you again for being such an important part of our wedding day!Tiffany & Fazil
We recently travelled to Vancouver from Ontario and put our faith in Young Hip and Married to make it all happen. They quickly assigned us an officiant who ended up being Erika. Erika helped up find the exact location after just showing her a picture of a previous wedding posted on the website. She knew how to get us the right answers and her communication was wonderful. Erika’s husband served as one of our witnesses and he so kindly took it upon himself to video our ceremony as it was just the two of us. They were so friendly and made our wedding so very special as they delivered a short, intimate ceremony we were hoping for. Big thanks to Erika and the Young Hip and Married team!!Sarah & Jonathan
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 truly felt you captured Dave and I as a couple during our ceremony. It was an amazing day and we are so happy that we had you as our officiant!Kailah & Dave
Our 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
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
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
- We could not have been happier with Erika and the entire team at YH&M. Everything went perfectly, it was easy to talk to everyone handling all the details and when the day finally came, Erika went above and beyond to make everything just as we had hoped it would turn out. She was compassionate and we’re so grateful that she helped us through something we had hoped would never be stressful. Couldn’t thank this team anymore, and would absolutely highly recommend them to anyone!Reese & Mikah
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
