    Amazing! Simple!

    Young and hip takes the stress and over Google searching out of everything. They’re quick to respond and super helpful all their information is laid out so easily.

    From telling you where you can get a marriage license from setting you up with an officiant and helping with the vows and pre-wedding counselling they literally have you covered for everything.

    Bobbi was amazing. She really took the time to get to know us and write a ceremony that was truly us. She was easy to get in contact with and was prompt delivering the ceremony for us to review as we liked. On the day, she was easy-going, charming, and absolutely perfect for the day. I highly recommend Bobbi if you're getting married, and the services of Young, Hip and Married are tailored to making getting married easy.

    YH&M made our day a breeze!

    Cannot recommend YH&M more! We worked with Erika as an officiant for our small elopement, and since we sent our first email reaching out, to the moment we said our "I do"s, the service was so incredibly personal, warm and helpful. They were supportive of us using our own format, including adding in a few extra moments that were not originally in the script. On top of all of this, they also took care of all the paperwork for us, making everything post-elopement a breeze. Despite only ever meeting Erika on the day of our wedding, our guests all felt like we already had an existing relationship with her. Thank you so much for the amazing support and service!

    Young Hip & Married's reply:

    Thank you so much, Amanda & Blaise! We are so glad you enjoyed your ceremony experience with Officiant Erika. Wishing you all the best, newlyweds!

    Just the best

    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!

    Young Hip & Married's reply:

    Thank you so much, Cassandra & Michael! We are so glad we could still get you married, despite all of the covid restrictions. We wish you two a lifetime of happiness!

    A perfect ceremony!

    We had Shawn as our wedding officiant and absolutely loved our ceremony! It was so special and intimate. It was all so stress-free as well. We got to meet Shawn in person, and we had a chance to go over the entire ceremony before the wedding. Loved everything about this company!

    Young Hip & Married's reply:

    Thank you so much, Ashley & Toby, for your kind words for Officiant Shawn! We are so glad you enjoyed your ceremony and that the whole experience was stress-free for you. Wishing you two all the best!

    Can't say WOW enough!

    Working with Young, Hip, and Married made our wedding so smooth and stress free. Last minute we had to move our wedding date up by several months but there were no issues, they really took care of us. Jane and Erica were so wonderful and accommodating, communication was impeccable!

    Young Hip & Married's reply:

    Thank you so much, Chantal & Taylor! We are so glad we could get you married, even though you had to move up your date. So thrilled we could be a part of your love story!

    Our Perfect Elopment!

    Young Hip and Married made our elopment an amazing experience!! Through covid changes, snow storms and having to postpone multiple times, every step of the way was a breeze. They listened to what we wanted, got to know us and made our day so special. We had Rhona as our officiant and she was the sweetest, and Amber Leigh as our photographer and she had a great eye for detail!! We highly recommend YH&M and the photographer package, it made planning that much easier.

    Young Hip & Married's reply:

    Thank you so much, Bobbi-Jo & Nathen. We are so glad we could get you married despite everything thrown your way. Wishing you two all the best!

    Great! Would recommend

    Jane from YH&M was great to work with!
    She met with us to get to know us where we answered questions about our relationship and she put together a beautiful story for our ceremony.
    She was professional and was great at communicating.
    Would definitely recommend.

Shawn Miller
Co-Founder/ Officiant | Greater Vancouver & Fraser Valley

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.

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, contact our team for more info!

Jane  Halton
Jane Halton
Head Coach & Officiant | Greater Vancouver & Fraser Valley

I wear lots of hats here at Young Hip & Married. Not only am I an officiant, I hire and train all of the officiants and head up our pre-marriage/relationship coaching program. No two days are the same, just like no two couples are the same.

When I’m not marrying people, I love spending time with my husband and two boys. We enjoy going to the beach, making pizza and hanging out in our East Van neighbourhood.

Erika  Enns
Erika Enns
Officiant | Greater Vancouver & The Fraser Valley

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.
