The Westview Team
Kate Rigby Pipan
Westview Events & Florals was founded by a Florist and an Event Planner who saw the missing links in the industry. They decided that clients should not have as many channels to communicate changes to.
When you work with Westview, we handle your planning, styling, design and florals so you have one contact for your event.
Kate and Bronwyn met in middle school, worked a part-time job together at a local flower shop and have remained friends ever since. They are the combined brains, heart and talent behind Westview Events & Florals.
If you want their resumes, please ask- we promise they have all the certifications you want when choosing a planner and florist.
When they are not ankle deep in florals or event itineraries, you can find them parenting their children or playing/cuddling with their dogs (maybe watching Netflix while doing so).
Q1: How did you meet?
Q2: Your first memory with K/B?
Going to the Burlington Sound of Music Festival, and while getting ready listening to the Sean Paul song “Get Busy” and being sure, that he said “Bronwyn and Kate” (listen to minute 2:36 of the song).
Q3. What you value most about each other now?
We are not afraid to tell each other the truth - where one is weak the other is strong. We also empower and help each other grow in areas where we need to.
