Shawn Miller (he/him/his)

My wife, Erica and I are the Founders and the Owners here at Young Hip & Married—I also happen to be one of our officiants. But first and foremost, I am husband to my beautiful wife Erica whom I married in 2004, and the father to our four incredible kids: Zion (2008), Vannden (2010), Onyx (2012) and our ‘baby’ girl Emmanuella (2014).

I love to cook (thank goodness for that because cooking for 6 everyday is no small feat). YH&M is my passion but when I’m not working I love being outside: hiking, running, jumping off cliffs, racing dune buggies across Mexico—you know the normal stuff. I also love doing anything outdoors with my kiddos—biking, skiing, camping, we love it all.

Erica and the kids are my inspiration for all the work I do here at YH&M and I really love love love helping people get married and stay married!

Every love story is so unique, and I have yet to hear a love story that is not worth celebrating.  My goal when I do a wedding is to represent my couples in the truest form to who they are as individuals and as a couple.

I want your wedding to FEEL like you. I want your guests to walk out saying, “Wow, that was so them!” I also want your guests to learn about why you work so well together, and why they have come to this big party in the first place.

If you have found that special someone to spend your life with, that is a remarkable thing and chances are it didn’t just happen. I want to share your story with the people that mean most to you. Let’s tell them a love story they will never forget.

Although I keep very busy running the company, and being a dad to my 4 kids, I still officiate quite a few weddings every year. If you’re interested in having me do your wedding, just click here!

 

Testimonials

 
  • We have nothing but kind words about our experience with Young Hip & Married. From the moment we met with Shawn, the process was seamless. Shawn was so helpful guiding us through the ceremony process, from the number of edits to assisting with the vows and how the ceremony should run. We don’t know how we would have done it without him. He customized the ceremony and it really felt like he had known us for forever. We had so many comments on how great and unique our ceremony was!! Going into a wedding, the ceremony is the most memorable part for the bride and groom and Shawn did everything to make us feel comfortable and at ease standing in front of 150 people. I would recommend Shawn and Young Hip & Married to anyone who is looking for an officiant. A million thanks!

    Sarah & Marc
  • Such an amazing company with amazing people. Everyone we met and worked with at YH&M was so positive, encouraging, and full of great energy. We received lots of compliments after our ceremony (officiated by Shawn).

    Kimberly Dioszeghy
  • We wanted a small and intimate wedding while on holiday in Vancouver and a quick search online brought up Young Hip & Married. So, we did our research on them and we couldn’t find a bad word about them, just an absolute abundance of positivity. On the day, we were blessed to have Shawn as our officiant; he instantly put us at ease and the ceremony was delightful. He is all around fantastic at his job and we felt honoured to have him perform the wedding. We also had Emily as our photographer. When originally looking at her previous work, I was drawn to her dark artistic style. We decided to choose Emily for that reason. On the day, Emily made us feel incredibly comfortable in front of the camera and as if no one else was around. It was a beautiful and bright day, so I was intrigued to see how the photos would turn out. We couldn’t be happier with the final product. It felt like a total contrast to what previous work we had seen but with her own unique artistic style. She is a truly talented professional. A massive thank you to everyone that made our day so special.

    Mat & Joanna
  • My spouse and I were both thrilled with Young Hip and Married. Shawn made sure that we knew exactly what to expect and guided us through every step.

    Victoria & JB
  • Shawn was fantastic in every aspect. I recommend to everyone.

    Stefan & Courtney
  • In the short time prior to our wedding when we first contacted Young, Hip & Married, they were quick to get back to us and put everything together. Shaun showed up on time and was able to breathe a little air into the situation and calm both me and my wife. The ceremony was great and most people’s favorite memory of the evening. Even though we had been married in Mexico a month prior, we wanted to do something special at our Vancouver reception and Shaun came through in spades!! Thanks again!

    Justin & Lolita
  • Our experience with Young Hip & Married and specifically with Shawn was outstanding. Not only were we truly impressed with the wedding ceremony, we enjoyed the entire process of creating it with him. He wrote our love story in a very beautiful, funny and creative way for all of our guests to enjoy. He isn’t just a writer; he is a story teller and brought our story to life! Thank you Shawn for doing such an amazing job. We will never forgot it!

    We encourage any and all couples to utilize Young Hip & Married’s services. Shawn always got back to us quickly and answered any questions we had promptly and thoroughly.

    Adam Blender
  • Like everyone else this year, we had to cancel the big wedding and wanted to elope in a special way with just the two us. We couldn’t have picked a better company to help us through with that! Our helicopter elopement was everything we could have ever hoped for and it was a perfect (and SUPER romantic!) way to tie the knot. Daniel and I want to send our warmest thank you to Shawn & Erica. We couldn’t recommend you more! <3

    Gia & Daniel
  • As many can relate, organizing a wedding (no matter the size) can be quite a daunting task, including finding a great officiant. We are incredibly happy we stumbled upon YHM, as they provided us with quick and the uttermost smooth service, and hooked us up with a fantastic officiant! Shawn went above and beyond what we expected, and allowed us to have a wonderful moment in life at a beautiful location. Definitely recommend them, as their pricing is very fair too.

    Pavel & Yuki
  • Great experience using Young Hip and Married. Shawn did our brother’s wedding and we thought he was so good that we made sure we booked him for our wedding too and he did another amazing job with lots of good feedback from our guests. Would recommend Young Hip and Married to anyone getting married. All the best!

    Matt & Shivon
  • We had such an amazing time working with Shawn Miller! We knew he was the perfect one to officiate our wedding right when we first had our zoom meeting with him! He was easy to talk to and was very accommodating! He was also present on our wedding rehearsal a few days before the wedding.

    He made our wedding day extra special by telling a short story about my husband and I. Our family and friends asked if we knew him beforehand because the way he talked during our ceremony made it seem like he was there right when my husband and I started dating– the ceremony was unique and very personal. He also gave us pointers on how to write our own vows!

    Overall, we highly recommend Young Hip & Married, and we loved working with Shawn! Thank you for making our wedding day extra special and memorable!

    Adrienne & Tyler
  • Shawn Miller was our marriage officiant this past weekend. He was communicative, personable, and professional. For our wedding ceremony, he created a unique and authentic ceremony that truly represented us. We received compliments from our family and friends! If you’re looking for a marriage officiant, I recommend Shawn at Young Hip & Married for your wedding.

    Batya Wan
  • Shawn was so helpful and encouraging and kind, which helped so much because we were both pretty nervous. He helped us make our ceremony so unique and specific to us as a couple, and many guests complimented us for not going with a traditional or religious ceremony. He kept both of us and all of our guests engaged in the ceremony and the reason we were there. Thank you, Shawn! We’ll remember you forever!

    Krystal
  • From creation to delivery, Shawn was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process! We were so thrilled to have had a ceremony so meaningful and beautifully written for the two of us. Even Shawn’s quirky, unique style was a true reflection of the two of us – something a little bit off the beaten path and totally unique! The only unfortunate issue we had was that the microphone cut out near the end of the ceremony… without missing a beat, Shawn handled it like a true pro and carried on. Thank you Shawn for helping to make this extra special day so memorable – it truly was magical!

  • My husband and I had a wonderful experience with our officiant Shawn. A lovely and dedicated person who made our day so much easier and enjoyable for everyone!

    Harry & Toby
  • We really liked the concept of this company and definitely wanted to stay away from a long, boring, templated wedding ceremony. We hired Shawn as our officiant and he was excellent! He met with us a couple of times to get to know us and what we were looking for in our ceremony. He also gave us separate forms to fill out to find out about our personal thoughts on our relationship. In the end, he came up with a very nice, unique story of our relationship to share with our wedding guests. Our guests got to learn more about us as a couple. He also directed our rehearsal ceremony in a very fun, but organized and structured way which is difficult when there are so many people involved. We wrote our own vows and Shawn gave us a lot of advice on how to create them. Shawn was very good at communicating with us and provided the perfect ambiance for our young, hip wedding ceremony. We strongly recommend looking into this company for a similar experience. Shawn met all of our expectations.

    Jillian & TJ
  • I couldn’t have asked for a better day! The Young Hip and Married team took care of everything for our small heli-elopement. It was the no stress wedding we were dreaming of. Shawn did a great job officiating and made us both feel comfortable and we were touched by his words. Erica’s photos turned out so beautiful. We couldn’t have asked for anything more !

    Megan & Kyle
  • I loved the short ceremony Shawn performed for my daughter’s wedding. It was touching, inspiring and unique. And Erica was a fabulous wedding photographer. I would highly recommend them as a team!

    Nala Henkel-Aislinn
  • Shawn was the officiant for our Pop-up Wedding (organized by Primp & Pop) and we couldn’t be happier. He connected with us right away and the first draft of the ceremony was so beautiful. He adapted his script to our requests to make it more personalized. Shawn’s energy was the perfect tone for our ceremony and we were lucky that he was able to work while on vacation in Muskoka!

    Nicole & Andrew
  • To say our wedding was magical, would be an understatement. From the location, to the vows, to the atmosphere – everything was carefully considered and curated to our liking. We will forever be grateful to YH&M for organizing and creating a day to remember, or as we say, the best day of our lives!

    Shannon & Jarvis
  • We had Shawn officiate our wedding on Aug 21st and he was amazing! We changed our wedding to a small elopement ceremony and Young Hip & Married was beyond accommodating with changing our wedding date (twice!) and downgrading our package. Shawn had an amazing energy, beautiful words… he just made the whole experience that much better. Our families were so impressed! Would absolutely refer them to anyone 🙂

    Michelle & Albert
  • Young Hip & Married are awesome! My wife (wife!!!) and I were married by Shawn with photography by Erica and couldn’t have asked for any better! Both Shawn and Erica were fun and enthusiastic and YH&M found us the most gorgeous location on top of everything else! Thank you!

    Laurel & Gillian
  • Shawn from Young, Hip, and Married was the officiant for our wedding last October (2016). Communication leading up to the wedding was prompt, the script he produced was fantastic and wonderfully tailored to us, and he made sure that everything went incredibly smoothly. YHM are paragons of professionalism, right down to the wedding rehearsal (which I highly recommend you take advantage of). I have literally no complaints about them and, were I to do it all over again, I’d still go with YHM. They’re not cheap, but you absolutely get what you pay for.

    Geoff & Kat Fisher
  • We can’t thank you enough! The fact that we asked your company for an officiant to wake up in the middle of the night and drive to Mount Seymour then hike an hour to the Dog Mountain lookout to marry us is crazy enough. But to have two officiants from Young Hip & Married agree still has us shocked! Thank you for being crazy with us! It was such a pleasure first dealing with Peter and then with yourself when we had to change the date of our wedding.
    Thank you so much for hiking and marrying us in the only way we could imagine doing it. Chris and I have looked back at the day and pictures several times and are still in disbelief that we pulled it off, and of course, it wouldn’t have been a reality without you. So thank you from our whole hearts (not just the bottom)!
    Caitlin & Chris
  • We had an amazing experience with Young Hip & Married and cannot recommend them enough. Shawn was very communicative and made everything stress free. He gave us tips on how to write our own vows and a step by step guide of what to expect on the day. Shawn is absolutely terrific! He made our ceremony absolutely perfect and we can’t thank him enough; especially for calming us with the deep breaths and the beautiful words he spoke at our ceremony. All our guests were ranting and raving about how incredible our officiant was and if they were to get married that’s who they would want officiating it.

    Chelsea & Kyle
  • There simply isn’t enough space to say all the great things I want to say! Shawn was fantastic to work with – the process of creating our ceremony was fun and collaborative and on the wedding day, it showed. We were both thrilled with how it all came together, and our guests are still telling us how much they loved our ceremony and how honest & true it felt to us as a couple. Thank you Shawn for helping make our wedding ceremony a moment to remember.

    Jeannine
  • Great personal touch and service. Shawn went above and beyond in planning and working with us to create a unique and authentic ceremony.

    Guy & Jen
  • We were married May 13th, 2017 in Stanley Park and it was a wonderful experience. Shawn at Young Hip & Married is a fantastic officiant. The ceremony was exactly what we were looking for: relaxed, easy and fun. The photographer, Erica Miller was AMAZING. The photos turned out better then we expected. I would definitely recommend YH&M.

    Jodie LaFleur
  • Shawn officiated our wedding. We couldn’t be happier with our experience. Shawn was very professional throughout the process and took the time to get to know us so that he could tailor our ceremony to suit our personalities. The ceremony was perfect and it felt “very us.” We had numerous people come to us after the wedding and ask if Shawn was a friend of ours because the ceremony felt that personal. I would highly recommend using this company for your wedding.

    Stacy Shields
  • Couldn’t have chosen a cooler, more professional, and awesome company than this. Was lucky enough to hire Shawn for our wedding , and he did nothing short of an amazing job. I would reccomend Young Hip & Married to absolutely anyone getting married.

    Justin & Kayla
  • We were thrilled with the service from Young Hip and Married for our small, intimate wedding. We contacted them on quite short notice and they were extremely accommodating. They were thoughtful, caring, and easy to communicate with. On the day of our wedding, Shawn was organized, expert, and relaxed. We had an incredibly special and memorable ceremony, without going through great pains to explain ahead of time what we were looking for. Would HIGHLY recommend if you want a clear, professional planning process, and an intimate, meaningful day-of!

  • Absolutely amazing service! Shawn was so personable and accommodating to our ever changing circumstances! He truly knows how to take your story and tell it in such a beautiful way. Now we are young hip and married!:)

    Taylor & Justin
  • We spent quite a bit of time researching wedding officiants in Vancouver and we are so glad that we met with Shawn Miller.

    Together, we worked to customize an entire ceremony that was completely and genuinely us. His infinite patience and creativity had all our guests talking about how sincere and refreshing it was to attend a wedding where the officiant spoke like he actually got the chance to get to know the couple and engaged with those gathered to witness the marriage. Shawn’s advice and guidance was invaluable when planning the big day and we are one of the lucky few that can say our ceremony started right on time!

    Roxanne Ramzi
  • Shawn from Young Hip & Married managed to pull off a ceremony that all our parents (and us!) truly loved and we weren’t really sure if that would even be​ remotely possible! My husband and I grew up with different cultures and traditions and Shawn helped us find the perfect balance creating a custom ceremony that was so special and meaningful for us and our families. We got so many compliments from our guests on the ceremony, they loved being involved and a few people even asked if Shawn was a friend of ours! It was exactly what we wanted! We highly recommend Shawn if you’re looking for an excellent officiant​. The whole process was easy and professional.

    Ashley & Simon
  • Wonderful people, very relaxed! Made my small, chill wedding very fun with no stress as they were both knowledgeable about their art while being open to our ideas as well. Would definitely recommend for people who are looking for an officiant and photographer for a laid-back ceremony without any added stress. Thank you Shawn and Erica!

    Taylor Henkel
  • Young Hip and Married made our special day an amazing one! We were to be wed on May 30, 2020, but Covid hit and all was cancelled. This year we were going to get married no matter what! So May the fourth be with you 2021 was our day in the park with some family and the rest is bliss. Thank you YH&M

    Adam & Shawna
  • The team at Young Hip & Married was so wonderful to work with. We were a bit last minute in choosing an officiant and they were very prompt in responding and so accommodating. We chose Shawn as our officiant and he was so considerate and attentive to what we wanted. He was very professional, collaborative and mindful of what we wanted. We also had a small emergency on the day of our rehearsal and he was so kind while we sorted it out. Once we got the rehearsal going, he was so helpful and everyone knew exactly what they had to do on the day of. He put together such a beautiful ceremony and loved what everything he said. We received so many compliments from our guests! Highly recommend Shawn and the team at YH&M!

    Travis & Diane
  • We couldn’t have asked for a better ceremony! Shawn was an incredible officiant and made sure that both the ceremony was wonderful and we were present and got the most out of the experience. I am so glad we went with YH&M and would definitely recommend them.
    Molly & Conor
  • Shawn, at Young Hip & Married, was awesome! We had to postpone our wedding date because of Covid, and Shawn was super flexible and worked with us to make it all happen! We would totally recommend Young Hip & Married to anyone! Thanks for marrying us, Shawn!

    Amy & Wade
  • 10/10✨ Shawn was our officiant for our May 16th 2021 wedding. The energy he brought to our day made it that much more special. He made us both feel so important and our union one of a kind. Shawn made the whole experience run very smoothly, from our very first emails exchanged, to the moment we signed our marriage license. His Wedding Vows Course provides a lot of guidance and helps build confidence in creating perfectly balanced vows. Thank you so much Shawn!

    Joe & Becca
  • We had the best experience with them. They helped us to create the perfect wedding even during these difficult times. We are really grateful.

    Maria & Peter
  • Shawn did an amazing job with our ceremony! We had to make a lot of adjustments to our original plan due to Covid restrictions and Shawn was so accommodating! We could not have been happier to have YH&M and Shawn be a part of our big day! We could not be happier!

    Cassandra & Michael
  • One of the best choices we made for our wedding was booking Shawn! He was absolutely phenomenal!!! He created an incredible ceremony for us – it was unique and fit us perfectly. Not only were we blown away by him but all of our guests spoke so highly of the ceremony! We highly recommend Shawn to anyone considering Young Hip & Married for their wedding!

    Kaetlyn Ratzlaff
  • We had Shawn from Young Hip & Married at our wedding – he was everything we could have wanted and more! Really set the vibe we were looking for and everyone loved him! Highly recommend them 🙂

    Kelsey & Sean
  • A moment of huge appreciation and joy for the people at Young Hip & Married that were so accommodating, kind, and well spoken for our COVID-19 ceremony. Our friends and family who watched the video were all like “Wow the guy who married you guys was such a great speaker!” or some variation, and honestly, I just really enjoyed working with them! I’m not planning on getting married again, so I can’t say that I would use them again for, you know, another marriage ceremony. But we are planning on doing a vow renewal or something once COVID is under wraps and we can actually, you know, hug our friends and family without fear of giving them (or receiving) a virus; and for that we are definitely planning on going back to Young Hip & Married to see if that’d be cool!

    Nicholas & Kim
  • Shawn officiated our wedding ceremony and we were blessed with his bright and positive energy, as well as the depth of feeling in his words. He shared from his heart and touched everyone in a way that made us feel very connected to each other and to the land on which we were married. We have so much gratitude for having Shawn and his beautiful wife Erica be a part of our special day – many thanks now and forever!

    Amanda
  • We were blessed to have Shawn officiate our marriage! The whole journey from meeting them via zoom, and going through the process of writing vows and planning the coordinates was so hassle free! We are very grateful to have them to be part of our wedding journey! Shawn was early in the location making sure everyone feels welcome. He is very professional and very kind. Before the event starts, he came out to find me and re-assure me that everything is perfect and that everything is right on time. 5/5 star is not enough, should be 10/10 🙂

    Reyanna & Gerard
  • My Mother-in-Law is still talking about the cool boots that Shawn wore. More importantly though he tailored his service to maximize the amount of time we had for pictures in the cool setting where we got married.

    Liz & Zach
  • I would highly recommend choosing Shawn to officiate your wedding! He was so personable and relaxed, yet super professional at the same time; it’s clear he has done this many times before. I was especially grateful for this at our wedding rehearsal, where I was feeling a bit lost and nervous about our upcoming ceremony. Shawn came in and, in tandem with our week-of wedding coordinator (who he knew because he knows many people in this industry! Definitely a huge benefit.), totally took charge and told us exactly what we needed to do. I also appreciated Shawn’s words of encouragement, shared quietly with us in free moments, during the actual ceremony itself.

    Speaking of the ceremony, Shawn delivered a heartfelt and nicely-written speech. He delivered it like a family friend- and several guests thought we’d known him for a long time. While Shawn provided the bulk of the writing, he encouraged us to change, add, or subtract anything we felt necessary. Although it is never a comfortable feeling being critical of a person’s work, my partner and I felt that Shawn truly wanted our honest feedback. And, as a result, people loved our ceremony and felt like it suited us perfectly.

    The last thing I’d like to say is, Shawn is passionate about relationships and the people within them. We could tell from the outset that Shawn was a different personality type from either of us; but, just as you make friends who are different from you, it is absolutely possible to have the same thing in your wedding officiant. I didn’t know that until we met Shawn and decided that he would be a good match for us (and vice versa). We are so glad that we made the right choice!

    Scotti Gibson
  • Young, Hip and Married exceeded our expectations in every area! Shawn and Erica are both so personable that even though we had never met face to face until moments before we were getting married, we felt as though we were spending time with old friends. Quality time! Shawn hit the mark so dead on in the words he spoke during our ceremony that one would wonder if he had been following us around for years in preparation. Erica took the photos for us and made our family feel completely at ease. We enjoyed the most laid back wedding day that suited our personalities completely, we wouldn’t change one thing and are so grateful for the experience! If we could tell the world how awesome this was we would, I have even been suggesting people marry strangers just to get in on it:) Thanks!

    Darcy Arnold
  • Had an awesome experience with our elopement. Everything was simple, smooth and we felt completely taken care of. Thanks, Erica and Shawn!

    Benjamin & Alison
  • When we decided to elope, our expectations (when it came to finding an officiant and photographer) did not include anything close to the level of expertise we experienced with Shawn and Erica. It’s impossible to describe, except to say that they put such beautiful human touches on so many moments. We are extremely grateful to have been joined by Shawn and Erica on this day!

    Grover & Helen
  • Shawn Miller was fabulous as our marriage commissioner! He met with us in person before we made our decision and he was our first and obvious choice. Shawn worked with us to make our ceremony as personal and as special as possible and put us both at ease on our big day. We had so many compliments on the part he played with our ceremony and his interaction with our guests before, during and after. He and his wife run a very professional business and make sure all your needs are met and your questions are answered in a very timely fashion. My new husband and I would highly recommend Shawn and his colleagues for anyone getting married and who wants their day to be as memorable and special as it can be!

    Lisa Dunn
  • Everything was very lovely, Shawn and Erica were also very friendly. I had a great time. I was worried while planning this wedding about the covid restrictions and about what could happen but everything was soo smooth! Would recommend!

    Crystal & Joel-Peter
  • So happy and thrilled we chose them to do our ceremony. We had so many compliments about how fun, funny and engaging the ceremony was from the start to the end. It was exactly what we wanted plus more. I would recommend this to anybody who’s looking for something different than the boring old normal ceremony

    Kelley & Michael
  • I highly recommend the Young Hip and Married team. We chose to do the elopement package with the hour of photography. Shawn was our officiant and Erica was our photographer. Both were very professional and did an excellent job!

    Brianna & Antony
  • My fiancé and I were planning to elope and we were in search of an officiant and photographer in Vancouver. I stumbled across YH&M on the internet and they seemed the perfect fit. We wanted a simple, sweet ceremony sans religious overtones. We hoped to find someone that would reflect our sensibilities -creative/contemporary/cool. Shawn and his wife Erica were perfect!! Since we are from California & unfamiliar with Vancouver, they were extremely helpful in finding where we could procure our marriage license close to the hotel. They were also flexible about our location and allowed us to confirm within 24 hours of the scheduled ceremony. We wanted to visit the site we had chosen via pictures to be certain it was exactly what we wanted. They were on site prior to our scheduled time and ready to go as soon as we were. It was so nice to finally meet them in person after communicating with them via emails. We couldn’t have felt more comfortable! Our ceremony went off without a hitch- we managed to get a couple bicyclists to be witnesses 🙂 Erica stayed with us after the ceremony and we took loads of pictures. She couldn’t be nicer and really put us at ease. We got some great pictures out of the experience that we are free to use as desired. We both felt the value for the service was incredible. We were extremely happy with the entire experience with them, and would highly recommend their services to anyone!!

    Kathie & Scott
  • Shawn was awesome. He matched the feeling of our wedding perfectly. He was super engaging and fun to work with, and the ceremony was perfect. Thanks guys!

    Alijah & Eve
  • Great service! We got the awesome elopement package and enjoyed every second of it. The pictures and ceremony were great!

    Nikita & Tyler
  • I recommend Young Hip and Married. The experience far exceeded expectations and they made it perfect for our special day and situation (covid… our kids only). Thanks for facilitating and enhancing our wedding… which is now a great life memory.

    Luke & Nicole
  • Shawn Miller is the best of the best. He had wonderful energy and came through for us only a few days before my wedding. After calling Young Hip & Married twice, I thought they didn’t return my phone calls. But after posting to Shawn online about it, he got involved and got down to it and solved all my problems. My mother forgot to replay the message to me 🙁 but despite the mix up, he delivered. I can’t thank him enough. And would recommend him to everyone and anyone getting married.

    Jessica Morrisson
  • We had a wonderful experience with Shawn. He tailored our ceremony to be specific and unique to us which was so meaningful. We had many guests ask how long we had known Shawn as it seemed like he was an old friend. They were shocked to find out that we had just met through the wedding planning process. Would thoroughly recommend using him as your officiant.

    Jacqueline & Derek
  • My wife and I could not have been happier with our experience with YH&M over the course of planning our wedding and the day itself. They were exceptionally accommodating as our plans changed with COVID, and Jackie-Deane provided fantastic customer service throughout. Shawn provided the perfect energy and feeling we had hoped for during the ceremony itself, which was personalized to us as a couple and our story. Could not more highly recommend YH&M as a great addition to your wedding day.

    Tom & Katherine
  • YHM are not like your usual officiants, they bring a spark of energy and life into your ceremony all while making it heartfelt and personal. Shawn made us feel at ease and as if he’s known us for years. This is a great choice if you want your ceremony to be more of a memorable experiences and connection with your guests!

    Elaine & Catalin
  • Shawn and Erica were wonderful! Erica captured so many wonderful shots of our special day and stayed overtime to get our requests met! Shawn was professional and good-humoured throughout, and made our special day a little less stressful! Thanks so much guys!

    Josann & Kaid
  • Working with Shawn was seamless and very tailored to us and our story. He brought charm and energy into the ceremony that was a perfect balance to the love and emotion we were feeling. This was our second marriage so we knew what experience we wanted. Shawn was understanding and onboard and took our lead but also helped guide us on best practices. We said “I Do”! Success! Thank you, Shawn!

    Monica & Robin
  • We had Shawn Miller officiate our wedding and he was absolutely amazing from start to finish! We were looking for an officiant who was NOT BORING! Meeting with Shawn for the first time, he made us both really excited for the ceremony and seemed like the perfect. He said you sometimes go to weddings where the ceremony is the most boring part but yet it is the most important and meaningful part of the day. We both completely agreed and wanted to ensure our ceremony was the most meaning part of our day so hiring him to be our officiant was an easy choice! Leading up to our wedding, Shawn put together a beautiful outline of what we would expect during the ceremony. It was extremely personalized and engaging which was exactly what we were hoping for. He came up with ideas and details we both never would have thought of and loved everything he suggested! Immediately following our ceremony along with following the days after our wedding, we continued to receive many amazing comments from our guests saying how they never have been apart of a more beautiful ceremony before ours. Looking back on our amazing day, our ceremony was definitely our favorite part of our day and we will never forget it! Thank you so much Shawn – we are so grateful to have found you!

    Karly & Wade
  • Young Hip and Married went above our expectations. I would highly recommend them to anyone. They were great at communicating and very professional. Our wedding turned out amazing thanks to them and we are so happy with the photos we received as well as the ceremony. Thank you for making our day so amazing!

    Natalie & Max
  • Shawn was simply amazing! So many of our guests commented on how they felt like he was marrying them too 🙂 He really connected with the crowd, and was such a please to deal with during the whole process.

    Christina & Michael
  • Our wedding was incredibly atypical, and had a lot of factors to it most hired pros don’t appreciate having to arrange: early rising, considerable amounts of travel, an overall lack of traditional applications and at least 20% more emus than your usual venue. Shawn and Erica Miller committed to all of our needs with zero hesitation. While others said we were expecting too much or getting too eclectic, Y, H and M reassured us that this was our day and we should be able to design it however we wish. They did something very crucial few do for young couples planning their wedding: they listened. The officiating script was thoughtful and romantic, our photographer was excellent at directing us and incorporating our personal touches, and together they were a delightful, dedicated team who truly brought out every detail we wished to see shine on our biggest day. If your wedding plans stray from the more orthodox ways (or even if they don’t!), we highly recommend Young, Hip and Married. Your special day will be as beautiful and creative as you imagined with them on your side.

  • Shawn was amazing! We loved our wedding ceremony. The entire process was so professional yet personal. Shawn made our ceremony so unique and memorable. We laughed, we cried, and we felt so much love. Thank you Young Hip & Married for making our special day something we will never forget!

  • Shawn was very helpful and helped to make our ceremony very personal. Our guests commented as to how personal and interesting our ceremony was and that was what I really wanted. It’s great to have a fun party after but let’s be real, its really all about the ceremony, right? Shawn is well worth the costs and he really is available for any help you may need.

  • We had a small ceremony in Vancouver, and had so many people comment on how great Shawn was as our officiant! Highly recommended.

  • Hubby and I decided to get married in a private and intimate ceremony instead of waiting for COVID-19 restrictions to be lifted. We contacted YH&M as we had no idea where to start. They helped us from start to end. They coordinated everything; we even got guidance on how to write our vows. Our ceremony was very intimate and beautiful. Shawn Miller was our officiant and Emily Nicole our photographer; I cannot stress enough how amazing they are. We are more than happy with our decision to marry during COVID times and incredibly thankful with YH&M for making it happen, in such an intimate, romantic and lovely way.

    Tarryn & Ryan
  • Shawn, the officiant, created a beautiful and unique wedding ceremony for us. He was very flexible with our vision of a wedding ceremony. As well, he also gave us some good ideas. It was a good experience and I would recommend Young, Hip & Married for any couple getting married.

  • Shawn and Erica Miller from Young Hip and Married were fabulous to work with. They gave my husband and I all the liberties we wanted to have the wedding we wanted. Our wedding was perfect in every way. From Shawn’s beautiful words, to our own vows, to the gorgeous location and perfect weather. We can’t wait to see the pictures Erica took throughout our day! Thank you Shawn and Erica for giving Ian and I a wedding day we will never forget!

    Becky & Ian
  • We had a very small, intimate wedding. Having Shawn, as our officiant, and Erica, as our photographer, felt like we had two more close friends at our ceremony. Both instantly put us at ease and never made us feel rushed or anxious. Shawn’s words were so touching and heart felt, it seemed like he had known us for ages. Erica knew what our wishes were and stuck to them without making anyone else feel uncomfortable. We spent the first couple of hours as husband and wife, walking along the sea wall with Erica, and I can’t imagine it any other way. Our wedding was perfect and even more special than I ever could have imagined. Thank you so much Shawn and Erica! You are amazing!

  • My husband and I had Shawn Miller officiate our wedding this October and it was one of the best decisions we made by far! What a nice guy! From the beginning Shawn was friendly, personable, enthusiastic and caring. He made sure to create a ceremony that was authentic and unique to our personalities. He made me feel so comfortable that I wasn’t even nervous by the time I got to the altar! Our guests are still talking about how engaging and perfect our ceremony was and assume Shawn is a long time friend of ours. Highly recommend!

    Kayzia Mitchell
  • Shawn was absolutely fantastic! We had requested a simple legalization/elopement, and everything turned out exactly as we had imagined it. He showed up at our chosen vacation excited for us and ready to go. He was friendly and engaging with us and our two friends who were there to witness. The whole experience turned out to be a very happy and memorable one! I will definitely be recommending these guys to anyone I know getting married in the future.

  • We got married at the end of September with Shawn as our officiant. The entire process was stress-free and Shawn really delivered the wedding ceremony that fit us best. Thank you for making our ceremony heartfelt, light-hearted and most importantly: fun! Thanks again to the entire Young Hip & Married team!

    Travis Harrison
  • My husband and I knew we wanted a really personalized wedding ceremony. When we first met with Shawn for coffee, we were super impressed on how well he understood our relationship…so we hired him on the spot! We both loved how we got to read over his drafts and edit anything we wanted. Shawn did not disappoint either, and he made our wedding ceremony truly special. Our wedding guests were super impressed and kept commenting on what a great job he had done. We loved working with Shawn overall, and he nailed every aspect that we wanted to have for our wedding. You can’t go wrong if you hire Young Hip and Married!

  • Young Hip & Married brought so much ease to my big day! From start to finish they were professional, helpful and responsive. Shawn was an absolute pleasure to have officiate our wedding! He managed to swiftly juggle our ceremony with two toddlers pulling at each other, fighting for the attention. Worth every penny! Thanks again Young Hip and Married !! You guys rock!!

  • Choosing Shawn to officiate our wedding was the best choice we made. He makes the ceremony so personal; it feels like he knew us forever. We had so many compliments on what a great job he did!

    Eric & Michelle
  • YH&M was recommended to us by a friend who used to be a photographer in the wedding business. I could not be more thankful that she pointed us in this direction! We worked directly with Shawn who was totally down to earth, connected with us immediately, and was the most helpful and gracious all the way up in preparing for our day! Our ceremony was AWESOME – Shawn spoke beautifully, he ensured our ceremony captured exactly us and helped our guests feel super engaged with the ceremony. We received LOTS of feedback from guests that they thoroughly enjoyed our ceremony – it set the tone for a wonderful love & fun-filled evening! GO WITH YH&M FOR YOUR WEDDING FOR SURE!!!

  • We had Shawn officiate our wedding and it was amazing. We had so many compliments on the ceremony and people asking where we got him from. Some people complain about the costs for this company on the wedding groups I am in but they are worth every penny. The ceremony was personal and felt like he really knew us. He got our drafts to us in a timely manner, showed up for the rehearsal dinner (even though we forgot to confirm and we booked the rehearsal almost a year in advance, it gave me comfort for the wedding day knowing they had their schedule organized). Shawn was running about 30 minutes late on the day of the wedding but that was due to the people before us running behind so it was out of his control but he did call and let us know so we just made an announcement to our guests so they knew what was happening and could grab a drink while they were waiting. I would highly recommend Young Hip and Married.

  • Shawn was a great officiant, and we highly recommend hiring him. He helped us get our wedding details in place, and was extremely helpful whenever we needed anything.

    Sara & Scott
  • We chose Young Hip & Married based on the positive feedback from other couples and they did not disappoint. Shawn was our officiant and he was extremely supportive, encouraging and helpful. From our first meeting to our wedding day, Shawn was always there to see everything through. We loved how the ceremony was tailored for us and reflected us as a couple. We got many compliments from our family and friends and were asked more than a dozen times who Shawn works for! Thank you Young Hip & Married for a wonderful day. Thank you Shawn for making the journey to our big day an easy one. We really couldn’t have done it without you. You’ve left quite an impression with our wedding guests filling them with laughter and tears of joy!

  • We had the best intimate elopement wedding last Jan 8, 2021. My wife and I planned it in less than 2 weeks. We managed to pull it off perfectly with the help of YHMW, especially Shawn and Erica, the best duo. We and our family had the best day! 🙂 thank you again!

    Karl & Carlen
  • Young Hip and Married had already been recommended to us for their amazing officiants, but when we decided to elope this summer, we chose an elopement and photography package and couldn’t have been happier. We knew we wanted a mountaintop elopement, and were open to a hike, but didn’t have a specific location in mind. YHM were quick to help us figure out a location, and when that trail was closed on the date of our wedding, it was Erica and Shawn who came up with an excellent backup plan. Shawn’s ceremony was exactly what we didn’t know we were looking for, and Erica’s photography is stunning. They were both so warm, friendly and professional. They made our small, intimate wedding feel so special.

    Kirsten & Cameron
  • My wife and I decided to go with Young Hip and Married for our elopement and we couldn’t be happier. They were really responsive, and helped us through all the steps in the process. Shawn is an amazing officiant and Erica’s’ photos are breathtaking. I really recommend them if you want a special and unique ceremony.

  • We knew early on that we wanted Young Hip & Married to officiate our wedding. What a great decision! Our officiant Shawn took the time to really get to know us and wrote a ceremony script that was beautiful, heartfelt and full of details about our love story. It was everything we hoped it would be and more.

    Janine & Sam
  • Working with Young Hip & Married, specifically our officiant Shawn Miller, was a dream come true! Everything went off exactly as we had hoped and many of our wedding guests commented on how much they loved our unique, thoughtful, personalized wedding ceremony!

  • We were SO pleased with YHM! Shawn was our officiant and was great to work with. He collaborated with us to customize our ceremony. He also did a fantastic job facilitating and taking charge of our rehearsal. On our wedding day day, Shawn was fantastic. His kind energy put everyone at ease and he was very charismatic and engaging. Our guests were blown away by our ceremony and I would recommend Shawn to any couple needing an officiant!

  • We wanted to express our sincere thanks for the most wonderful, exclusive wedding anyone could wish for. Thank you Erica and Shawn for sharing our special moment.

    Neena & Harjinder
  • Our parents thought we were crazy when we said we wanted to fly Shawn up to Powell River to officiate our wedding. Within moments of Shawn running through the rehearsal, they understood why and were happy we did! Shawn was DEFINITELY the highlight of our day! The ceremony was more than we could have imagined or even come close to constructing ourselves. Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding, Shawn. You are doing amazing work and our only hope is that you’re still around in 10 years to renew our vows (hopefully next time in Hawaii).

    Jess & Chris
  • YH&M were fantastic from start to finish! As a couple wanting a non religious marriage ceremony, we were finding it restrictive seeking a commissioner who would give us much control of our day and let us have it as casual as we wanted it. I was lucky enough to witness Shawn conduct a wedding ceremony at Cleveland Dam when I happened to be there one day. I was so impressed I cancelled the commissioner I had previously booked (who wasn’t even interested in meeting us before the day), spoke with YH&M (who were very relaxed & friendly from the get go) and booked Shawn with just a little over a week to go before our big day. Shawn catered the ceremony to us and what we wanted. I cannot quite explain the relief this gave us to know that we could finally have the day we had dreamed of! I highly recommend YH&M for anyone whether they are young, old, religious, non religious, traditional or want an original wedding day. They made our day extremely special! Thank you 🙂
