Finding the right fit to officiate your big day can be tough. Some people want someone they know, some people want someone religious, some people want someone NON religious and some people want someone unique and different where you can incorporate a piece of yourselves.
If you are looking for a unique and “out of the box” wedding ceremony with easy-going people who want to make your day special and one to remember, I think a great choice would be Young, Hip & Married! They truly care about the couples they work with and want to bring value and their passion for love & marriage not only to your wedding day but most importantly your MARRIAGE! That being said, not only are they wedding officiants, they also provide marital coaching which I really think it a GREAT idea that more couples should be doing before taking the plunge!
Here are some more details about the lovely Shawn & Erica Miller, the owners of Young, Hip & Married and their awesome team & services!
Name/s: Shawn & Erica Miller
GS: What’s your business name and tell us a bit about yourself/your business?
Young Hip & Married.
YHM: Hi. We are Shawn and Erica Miller and we are Young, Hip & Married, at least we like to think so. Young, Hip & Married is also our passion business. We’ve been married for 8.5 years and LOVE LOVE LOVE being married and we just love marriage in general. We have 3 fabulous boys and are pregnant with our 4th babe as we write this. We love to share about our own experiences as a married couple and what we have learned and continue to learn along the way. Our hope is that by authentically sharing our lives with you – our struggles, insights, victories, and learning’s, we can encourage couples to build and fight for an incredible life-long marriage.
GS: What products/services do you offer?
YHM: We do a couple of things here.
We Marry People. We believe that a strong foundation makes a strong marriage and where better to start then at the wedding. Couples deserve to have a wedding ceremony that reflects who they are as individuals and as a couple. Your wedding ceremony is the first moments of the rest of your lives together, who wants the words that are said to have no relevance to their lives? We think that’s crazy and that’s why we have an amazing team of wedding Officiants all who are fully licensed to marry people in Canada. Young Hip & Married Officiants help engaged couples create the BEST wedding ceremonies that truly represent who they are, not a script that’s been read 1000 times. They are fan-freaking-tastic and if you are looking to get hitched in your own unique way style and expression, Young Hip & Married is for you.
We coach couples. We work with couples who want to rock their marriage and their life. Be it pre-marital or marriage enrichment, looking to grow stronger or to hold it together, we coach couples towards a fiery and peaceful union. Anything you want to last a life time is going to need some work. Why don’t we apply this to our marriages? Young Hip & Married is all about helping couples create a marriage that starts off strong, gets better with age and brings out the best of who you are. Amazing Marriages don’t just happen, they are built over time, and most of us have no idea what an amazing marriage even looks like. Don’t leave your marriage to chance, work on it, build it, talk about it, deal with your issues. If you do, it will just get stronger
GS: What inspired you to start your business?
YHM: Young Hip & Married was started out of our desire to see couples set up to succeed in marriage. As a young couple newly married we had seen the perfect in love couple, and the 30 year married couple all end up in Divorce. That made us Sad and Scared and so we started asking ourselves, how does this not become us? We decided to make having a successful marriage our top priority so we could stay happy and together until the end. Fast forward 6 years later and Young Hip & Married was born.
GS: What is one thing that sets your business apart from other wedding officiants?
YHM: We hold no agenda for our Couples other than what they want. We want you to have exactly the ceremony you have always dreamed about. We take the time to listen and ask the right questions so that your ceremony is truly you. We allow an unlimited amount of edits to all our couples until everything is just right.
GS: Any additional information brides should know about your product/services?
YHM: Besides having the best Officiants in the biz, which we do, Young Hip & Married’s sole focus is to see you set up to succeed in your marriage. Yes we want you to have a beautiful wedding but more than that we want you to have an insanely beautiful marriage. We care deeply about the happiness of our couples pre and post wedding and hope to remain a resource for them throughout their life together.
GS: What are some words of advice to couples on their big day? (or married life in general)
YHM: Planning a wedding is a BIG adventure, a REALLY BIG adventure, and nothing ever goes wrong on an adventure, because it is just that, an adventure. If at the end of the day you are married to the one you love then it was a perfect day. So keep calm and marry on!
I couldn’t have said it better myself, KEEP CALM & MARRY ON!
