    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.

    We loved working with Sarah!

    We contracted with YH&M for our 11/12 wedding in Portland, and were assigned Sarah as our officiant. Sarah was warm, friendly, and so on top of everything from our first meeting with her, and we absolutely loved working with her! She responded to any questions we had super quickly, kept us on track by scheduling meetings at mid-way points to go over the ceremony, and was so patient with our indecision on some elements. Sarah also came to our rehearsal the day before the wedding in the rain and was still smiling and so positive about the whole thing, and helped make sure everything went smoothly. The day of, the personalized vows she wrote were perfect- she paid so much attention to what we'd told her about ourselves and our values, and our friends and family can't stop talking about the ceremony and most of them cried, haha. We'll never forget it, and we're so grateful to Sarah! We'd give our highest recommendations to Sarah and to Young, Hip and Married.

    Young Hip & Married's reply:

    Thank you, Kaitlin & Brian, for your lovely review and recommendation. We're so glad you enjoyed your experience with Sarah and that your friends and family loved it too. Wishing you both so much happiness!

    Mikayla & Max - Wedding Date: October 29, 2022

    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. Thank you for everything you did!

    Young Hip & Married's reply:

    Thank you so much, Mikayla & Max! We're so glad you enjoyed your ceremony experience with Erika and our YHM team. Wishing you both all the best!

    Nothing could have made it better

    Jane set the tone for the day. Inclusive, relaxed, funny, and warm; everything that we wanted for our day. Every guest commented on how great she was. Our prep was minimal and she understood our schedules and worked with us. I can't thank Jane and Young, Hip and Married enough for being a part of our day.

    Thank you so much, Colleen & Dan, for your review. We're so glad you enjoyed your wedding with Jane. Wishing you both the best!

    Excellent Officiant!

    We heard about Young Hip and Marries from friends of ours who uses their services when they got married. Lonnie was the officiant for our 10 person wedding, and he was great! He provided us with his script for the ceremony, and requested our feedback and approval, which was nice. Communication was always quick and clear, and he was very responsive to any request we had! We asked that he step aside when we were saying our vows, and also for our first kiss as man and wife, and he had no problem doing so. This was nice, because we have lovely photos of these moments with us my husband and I.

    The package we purchased also included a free vow writing course, and it was incredibly helpful! I’m really proud of the vows I wrote, and the course made it so easy!

    I definitely recommend Young Hip and Married!

    Thank you, Katie & Baron, for your lovely review and recommendation. We're so glad you enjoyed your ceremony with Lonnie and that the vow course was so useful. Wishing you two so much happiness!

    Amazing custom experience!

    We worked with Jane for coaching sessions and the custom ceremony package. We were on the fence about paying the extra money for a custom ceremony. But our friends recommended it and we are so glad we did! It was so nice to have the opportunity to tailor the ceremony speech in a way that would be very meaningful to us and our families/friends. It made it much more memorable.
    Not only was the ceremony beautiful, but Jane went so above and beyond during the rehearsal to give us tips and tricks for things I didn't even think about. She was so lovely to work with. Extremely professional and kind. She really helped put us at ease throughout the process. And I would absolutely recommend her to anyone.

    Flexible services and great staff

    We had a unique situation of wanting our long time friend to officiate our ceremony but also having our wedding day be legal. The team at Young Hip and married had the perfect service for us where we could have our friend do the ceremony and the legal officiant came by after to make it all legitimate. Lise was lovely to work with and gave us exactly the legal ceremony we wanted. The whole team was great to work with and very responsive.

    Thank you so much, Georgia & Nathan, for your kind review. We're so glad we could help you pull off your perfect ceremony. Wishing you two all the best in your marriage ahead!

    Well worth the investment

    We are so glad we decided to hire Young Hip & Married! Jane was terrific! She was so attentive and worked with us to write a ceremony that fitted our personalities. She is calm, organized and professional. We felt at ease during our rehearsal and ceremony. We would definitely recommend her.

    Young Hip & Married's reply:

    Thank you, Juliane & Ryan, for your kind words and review. We're thrilled to hear you had a great ceremony experience with Officiant Jane. Thank you for the recommendation and wishing you all the best!

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.

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.
