We’re excited to start a new Creative Collaboration series, where we introduce you to our creative partners from all around the Bay Area! Today, we’re introducing you to Sandy Tijero from The Bridges Golf Club.
Sandy is Director of Catering at The Bridges Golf Club in San Ramon, where they host wedding, anniversaries, and corporate events, in addition to regular golf tournaments for up to 300 people. Starting out as a Golf Club restaurant manager, Sandy was promoted to the events department and quickly succumbed to wedding fever as do many of us in the events industry. For Sandy, it’s the idea that she’s planning one of the most important days in peoples’ lives that fuels her passion. During her time off, she loves traveling to Germany to visit her family.
Sandy’s quick wit is an extremely valuable asset in her job, as she shares an almost-disaster and how she saved the day:
We had a large, beautiful planter box in front of our ceremony site. The morning of the wedding, our Superintendent decided he was going to redo the planter box, and ripped out all the flowers. He was planning to put new flowers in the following week, but we had a wedding that day. So I ran down to Navalets, purchased whatever I could and planted all the flowers myself that day. It looked beautiful.
There you have it! Sandy reminds brides not to expect everything to be perfect. “Minor things may happen, but don’t let that ruin your day. You are marrying the love of your life. Let that be the most important thing that day.” Truer words have never been said!
