Courtney Griffin - Austin Chapter: Community Service Chair
Whim Hospitality - Camp Lucy - Tillie's: Director of Brand
Growing up with a heart full of style and sass, the life of the party- Courtney Griffin, was destined for the world of hospitality. The Austin native graduated from Texas State University with a Major in Mass Communication public relations, and minor in business marketing. From early days in interior design to directing 200+ women in her college sorority days, Courtney has harnessed her gift of gab, eye for detail, and ability to make the impossible, possible. Since joining the Whim Hospitality family in 2017 she has been the woman behind the proverbial marketing curtain, responsible for all digital and social media, graphic design, public relations and branding for the Inc. 500 company. In her new role as Director of Brand, Courtney is responsible for ensuring the integrity of all brands under the Whim Hospitality umbrella including Camp Lucy Resort and Tillie’s restaurant. She is consistently searching for the latest trends to drive big picture marketing strategy for the company in order maintain its position as the authority in the industry marketplace. She has a passion for pouring into others and making connections behind the screen and on the scene.
Amber Knowles - Dallas/Ft. Worth Chapter 
The Amber Studio: Owner & Lead Photographer 

What Amber loves most about weddings is the immense love and happiness present on the day. There really is nothing that compares to having all of your family and friends present from around the world in one place, ready to celebrate with you. As the founder of The Amber Studio, Amber’s artistic vision is to create joyful imagery of the diverse couples she works with. Her goal is to capture the real you, the real way you smile, the real way you laugh, and the real way you love. It's a bigger task than simply documenting your event, her goal is to be your historian. And, she makes it her mission to capture those happy, meaningful, and real moments just as they are. You can usually find Amber learning to sew wearable things or with a glass of wine in her hand. She is a Cali girl at heart, but will always consider herself a New Yorker after living in the city for ten years. So far she is loving her Texas adventure with her husband, Ed, and her cuddly pup, Miles.
