Westwood Plateau wedding: Katty + Scott

Westwood Plateau is one of those wedding venues that’s still a bit of a hidden gem in Coquitlam! I love everything about it. From the beautiful surrounding mountains to the exposed wooden beams in the club house. So of course I applauded Katty and Scott’s choice of Westwood Plateau for their wedding!

When we first met up with the two of them, we discovered how they are a multitalented couple. I loved hearing even more about it during their speeches, where their entrepreneurial spirits and experience with startups was highlighted several times. 🙂 It’s amazing to meet couples that clearly inspire others.

On a side note, talking about entrepreneurial qualities, Jelger and Katty certainly appreciated each other’s organizational skills! Katty proved herself to be an amazing spreadsheet connoisseur and she managed her wedding like a project. Jelger, who created a very detailed timeline guide, loves it when someone actually reads and uses it. Needless to say the day went flawless with perfectly timed everything. 😉

Thanks to all the preparations and work they put into everything beforehand, the morning of the wedding day had the most relaxed atmosphere. Katty and Scott got ready in the same airbnb house, in different rooms. I love it when that’s possible. There were not 1, but 3 first looks. 😉 The first one when Katty’s father first saw her and the second one with her friends. I thought this was especially awesome, such an excited group! And of course the third one when Scott first saw her in her wedding dress.

After the first look, the two of them drove to Westwood Plateau in a white Tesla, compliments of a friend who drove it all the way up from Seattle! Next, they dove straight into their wedding couple photo shoot before the wedding ceremony. Westwood Plateau provides golf carts for their wedding clients to visit some beautiful spots on the course. And while it rained most of the day, it stopped during their portrait time, yay! We enjoyed the beautiful environment together, before they started their intimate tea ceremony, followed by the wedding ceremony. I like that Katty was accompanied by both of her parents for her walk down the aisle!

Before sharing the photos with you, here are a couple of things that stood out to me personally. For the seating cards, Katty and Scott wrote a handwritten personalized message on the back each one! With over a 100 cards, I felt this was such an incredibly nice touch! It shows how much they care about each and every one person there. I’ve never seen this at a wedding before!

A great moment happened when their friends played out the couple’s “how they got engaged” moment. They added a couple of different versions depending on who’s point of view. It was hilarious and very creative! Another great moment occurred when the DJ, who is a personal friend, decided to ignore their pleas to end the first dance before the long song ended. They frantically hand-gestured to cut it short and he thought: nah, you do the whole thing. (Maybe I thought it was so great because we had over 3 minutes instead of 1 to photograph the first dance, lol.)

Thank you so much Katty and Scott for having us! Your day was one of a kind and we are honoured we were a part of it!
