    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.

    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.

    Young Hip & Married's reply:

    Thank you so much, Malak & Jordan! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience with Officiant Jane and the script she put together for your ceremony. Wishing you two all the happiness!

    We got so many compliments about Shawn from our guests. Everyone was asking where we found him! He made the planning/rehearsing easy, and everything on the day went smoothly. Definitely book.

    A memory that will never be forgotten

    Shawn was amazing!
    He was so charismatic and easy to talk to about our ceremony. Shawn helped guide us through what we believed to be the most anxious part of the day and honestly it became not only the funniest but most memorable. ( to be fair I think Shawn won't forget this day either!)
    He made me and my now hubby calm and made us laugh which is exactly what we wanted- he was there every step of the way, through out the process of conjuring up the ceremony tweaking it here and there making it ours.
    Many of our guests noted his wit and personality and how he made the day fun and special and that they have never been to a ceremony like ours before stating it was one of the best ones they have been to.
    It was the best choice to hire Young hip and married and would highly recommend this company to anyone.
    11 out of 10 for sure

    Young Hip & Married's reply:

    Thank you so much, Christine & Jayson! We are so glad you had such a fun, memorable and calming experience with Shawn. And we thank you for the 11/10 recommendation! You are the best!

    If your on the fence, YH&M is so worth it!

    Young hip and married is an exceptional group of people who we felt genuinely cared that we have the best wedding experience possible, from the very beginning to the big day, and even after! We so appreciated the entire process, and the flexibility for us to be involved in the writing of the ceremony. Both us and our guests were blown away on the execution by Erika on the day of the wedding. Certainly a milestone moment in our lives we will look back on with smiles on our faces.

    Young Hip & Married's reply:

    Thank you so much, Sam & Scott! You've put huge smiles on our faces :) We are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us and with your officiant, Erika. Wishing you two all the best!

    YHM are a DREAM to work with!

    Young Hip & Married was a DREAM to work with! We are beyond happy that we booked them for our Vancouver elopement wedding. As a company, they were personal, authentic, and helpful. They prepped us well before the ceremony and answered any questions we had. We felt heard, seen, and valued through the whole process (which was hardly a process at all - it was easy!)

    On top of that, our officiant - Lani Brunn - was absolute magic. She made everything so "us" -- very meaningful and personal. Nothing was canned, boring, or cookie-cutter. We appreciated her kindness and humour, and the warmth she showed not just us, but everyone there. Out of the 10 people who were in attendance, all of them have said it was the most authentic wedding they'd ever been to. Yay!!

    If we get the chance to marry each other again (or renew our vows) you can bet your butt we'll be booking with the YHM team again.

    Unexpected bonus: Lani has coincidentally married 4 other couples we know, and everyone LOVES her. We now jokingly call her the official "family officiant."

    Thank you so so so much Lani & everyone at YHM - you made our special day even more special.

    Young Hip & Married's reply:

    Wow, thank you so so so much, Kristy & Tyrone! We are so blown away by your review - you have us grinning from ear to ear. We're thrilled to hear that we could make the process so easy for you and that you loved your personalized ceremony with Lani - the family officiant! Wishing you two all the happiness in the world!

    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.

    Young Hip & Married's reply:

    Thank you so much, Gina & Brett! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us - from customer service, to customizing your ceremony, to your officiant on the day. We are so happy for you two and wish you all the best!

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
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.
