Each Chandelier Event tells a story through a variety of touchpoints designed to engage the senses from the venue and culinary story to curated entertainment and perfomances to out-of-the-box, creative design.
Known for her whimsical creativity, vast experience in weddings and social events, branding, TV and public relations, and relationships with top industry event professionals, Amy Shey Jacobs leads her team on the planning of every Chandelier Event. With an artistic eye, attention to detail and with her finger on the pulse of the most stylish and groundbreaking trends, Amy arrives at event planning with an equally grounded understanding of logistical production, timing, budgeting and guest psychology.

In 2013, she teamed up with The Knot to plan every detail of its first annual live-streamed dream wedding in New York City's Citi Pond at Bryant Park and has planned the prestigious Empire State Building weddings atop the landmark building on Valentine's Day as well as the US Weekly dream wedding with Weddingchannel.com at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC for an active-duty military couple. She pens the Chandelier Event "Spotlight Blog", and through Halo Public Relations, a sister company to Chandelier Events, Amy and her team work closely with a select group of clients on a variety of public relations campaigns and activities in the women's interest, fashion and beauty, lifestyle, fitness and wellness sectors.

When she is not cueing the ceremony musicians or loading in a press launch at the break of dawn, Amy enjoys spontaneous Spotify dance parties with her husband and two children, seeking out foodie experiences (preferaby gluten-free!) and is addicted to decorating her home on via flash sale sites.
