With the philosophy that a chandelier can truly be hung anywhere, from an elaborate ballroom to an empty airplane hanger, Amy works hand-in-hand with clients (celebrities, brands and private clients alike) to conceptualize and customize living experiences for weddings, social and experiential events. 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 performances to out-of-the-box, creative design. With an artistic eye, attention to detail and with her finger on the pulse of groundbreaking trends, Amy arrives at event planning with an equally grounded understanding of branding, logistical production, timing, budgeting and guest psychology. For her, the magic is in the reveals and the details, details, details.
