We are thrilled to shine our spotlight Kate Boyle to the blog today! Kate is the Private Events Administrative Assistant at The Club at Ruby Hill, which means she’s the one keeping the trains moving for all of their onsite events.
Get to know Kate and how she supports couples at The Club at Ruby Hill!
Tell us a bit about your professional background. What brought you to the event industry?
I started my career at the front desk of a local hotel in San Ramon with the goal of gaining experience in the hospitality industry because that is my major in college. I really enjoyed the work, even though our only event space was a business meeting room.
I started in June with The Club at Ruby Hill working the front desk and quickly became interested in all of the detailed Event Orders. I would write down the timelines in my downtime so that I could be informed if a guest were to come ask me anything, as they often did!
After seeing how busy the wedding season has been, the leadership team welcomed me to the office to assist the Private Events Manager and the sales team with administrative tasks like processing invoices and deposits. I look forward to gaining more experience in the events business and would one day be interested in working to plan music festivals!
What do you love about your job at The Club at Ruby Hill?
I love the team atmosphere here at The Club and its inspiring to see the backstage process that goes into planning a wedding! My favorite part about The Club is the golf and social atmosphere that surrounds us which makes for a great work environment.
If you could share one wedding planning tip with an engaged couple, what would you tell them?
If I could share one wedding planning tip with an engaged couple it would be to enjoy the process! It can be easy to get overwhelmed with specific details but staying organized and starting early makes for a huge advantage. I’ve seen engaged couples create their own blog-type website dedicated to all of their details along with a specific email address that they correspond to all of their vendors that way they don’t get lost in their personal inboxes.
We’re delighted to welcome Kate to the Livermore wedding community, and we can’t wait to continue our collaboration!
