Camille Ross is an experienced wedding and event planner with a passion for creating unique and memorable experiences. With over 13 years in the industry, she has executed events of all sizes, ranging from intimate dinners on a private island to large-scale residential productions built from the ground up.
Camille began her career after college in the luxury event planning industry with Creative Consultants in Austin, Texas. She then gained valuable experience in the upscale and international markets while running a wedding planning company in Grand Cayman. After returning to her hometown of Austin, she worked as an event manager at the Four Seasons Hotel and served as the in-house events director for Hai Hospitality, a James Beard Foundation-winning company. These experiences provided her with a professional yet familial hospitality perspective that she brings to her wedding planning approach, focusing on the guest experience, and building enduring client relationships.
In 2017, Camille launched her own event planning company called Elsie Event Co. Leveraging her industry knowledge, extensive network, and relationships with VIP clientele in Texas and beyond, she has established herself as a trusted ally to both clients and peers. Recognizing the opportunity to further elevate event and concierge services in Austin, she teamed up with co-founder Gina Whittington to form Whitt Ross in 2023, a partnership that felt like a "no brainer".
Outside of her professional life, Camille is actively involved in her community. She currently serves as the School Board President of TUMC (Tarrytown United Methodist Church) and is a member of the Women's Symphony League. When she's not planning events or engaged in community work, Camille enjoys entertaining friends and family, going out to dinner with her husband Taylor, and spending time with her 6-year-old daughter, Elsie. She is an avid traveler, a connoisseur of hospitality, and holds dual Franco-American citizenship.
