Linda Phan’s professional life took a turn for the better when she met Drew Scott of the Property Brothers’ fame. Like a wave of the proverbial magic wand, she went from being a Barista in Cineplex to a creative director at Scott Brothers Entertainment – an all-around global production company that is responsible for several aspects of the Property Brothers empire. She has since dated and married her soul mate, Drew, and is currently enjoying a fulfilling career as part of her husband’s company.
Linda’s architectural background and passion for entrepreneurship have become a plus for Scott Brothers Entertainment as it brought creative ideas as well as a unique perspective to the company. While working together can have adverse effects on a couple’s relationship, it has proven to be the exact opposite in the case of her and her man. They enjoy working with each other with their romance being all the better for it.
She has Three Older Sisters and a Younger Brother
Linda Phan is a Canadian national of Asian descent; she was born in Toronto, on the 22nd of April 1985. Even though she has managed to gain mainstream fame following her union with Scott, she has kept the details of her family background under lock and key. However, it has come to public attention that she grew up alongside four siblings – a younger brother and three older sisters one of whom is named April Phan. The media personality remains quite chummy with her siblings to date and often posts their pics on her Instagram page. They were also there by her side during her wedding and even helped pick out her dresses.
Her Very First Job was as a Barista at a Cineplex Theater
As a young girl, Linda Phan obviously excelled at her academics. Even though details of her early education and university qualification are hard to come by, it is known that she studied up to the postgraduate level in architecture. It is also known that her very first job was as a Barista in a Cineplex Theatre. According to the media personality, the job more often than not required her to watch tons of movie trailers and she was more than happy with this as she is a big fan of movie trailers. Another thing that Phan is a big fan of is Disney. She loves all things from the franchise ranging from their movies to the Walt Disney Theme Park. She has also revealed that her favorite karaoke song is A Whole New World from Aladdin.
Linda Phan Now Serves as the Creative Director of Scott Brother’s Entertainment Company
It is important to note that Phan met her husband before he achieved fame. In fact, it was the year that they started dating that he and his twin brother lunched their first TV series, Property Brothers, on Canadian cable. The show was subsequently picked up by the popular American channel, HGTV, and has grown to become a household show.
Property Brothers now airs in more than 100 countries and has spurned several spinoffs. The two brothers have also developed an empire that comprises merchandise lines, furniture, books, magazines, mobile apps, games, and what have you. One person that has midwife this success is none other than Phan. She serves as the creative director of Scott Brother’s Entertainment Company and in this capacity, manages multiple projects, such as digital campaigns, product and merchandise lines, marketing campaigns as well as philanthropic efforts.
She and Drew First Met at the Toronto Fashion Week in 2010
Linda Phan first ran into her future husband, Drew Scott, at the 2010 Toronto fashion week. She had been hired to work as fashion police at the event and was sporting a large cop badge whilst handing out tickets for distasteful fashion. Scott, of course, noticed her unique outfit and as well as the fact that she seemed to have a great personality. He also took down how attractive she was and decided to seek her out.
In a first move that has since been dubbed not-so-smooth, Scott approached Phan where she was standing with her sisters and sipping water and asked her where she got her water from. This question, albeit a bit lame, set the ground running for their conversation and by the end of the event, Scott had wiggled out a promise of a date from Phan. The two would later embark on a first date which started with sushi and chocolate and then progressed to an all-night party.
At the shindig, Scott volunteered to do karaoke and once he opened his mouth and started singing I’m On a Boat by Lonely Islands, Phan was a goner. She would later confess that this was the first of many times that she fell in love with her man. On his own part, Scott has revealed that the moment when he knew that Phan was the one for him was when he took her to hang out with his twin brother, Jonathan, as well as a close pal of his named Pedro. According to him, she immediately synched with the clique and this clinched the deal for him.
They Tied The Knot in a Destination Wedding Held in Italy in 2018
After six years of dating, Scott popped the big question to Linda Phan in December 2016. For the proposal, he picked an Italian restaurant in Toronto and arranged for the staff to play his own cover version of Train’s Marry Me. They then brought in a Dr. Seuss-themed cake and he got down on one knee and produced the 1.2-carat round-cut solitaire that he had been carrying around with him for so long. Luckily for him, Phan said yes and he then took her to a surprise engagement party that featured their two sets of parents, families, and friends.
Phan and Scott are now husband and wife having tied the knot in a beautiful destination wedding that took place in Italy on the 12th of May 2018. The wedding festivities itself spanned a week and included lots of fun activities for the couple and their guests. They include a bicycle tour, cooking classes as well as a welcome party featuring cheese and pasta making artisan booths. All these finally culminated in a lovely ceremony where the couple exchanged vows in front of about 300 guests.
For the occasion, the bride stunned in a wedding dress that was designed by Claire Pettibone while the groom wore a kilt by Claymore Imports. He later changed into a custom-made tux for the reception while Phan donned another gown that was equally made by Pettibone. The whole ceremony as simply magical with dancing, music as well as good food. Even nature also played a part by giving the couple clement blue skies throughout the ceremony.
The Couple are Looking Forward to Starting a Family in the Nearest Future
It has been about two years since the nuptials and Linda Phan and her husband are going strong. The couple makes their home in Los Angeles and has revealed that they plan on having kids in the nearest future. According to Scott, he believes that his wife would be an amazing mom and also hopes to a great dad as well. In preparation for this next stage of their lives, the couple practice by babysitting their nieces and nephews. They have also made renovations to their home to accommodate future kids.
As they wait to start their family, Phan and her husband keep busy with work. They also embark on several charity projects. The couple fervently subscribes to the belief that one should help out wherever they can and so, they asked their wedding guests to donate items to charity rather than send them gifts. The couple also embarked on a volunteer trip to Kenya in 2017 where they helped out with a non-profit that helps poor people.
