Planning & Management

From the first email I knew Chelsey was the wedding planner I wanted by my side on my big day. Chelsey is very knowledgeable, flexible, intuitive, and simply the best. I would not have had the wedding of my dreams if it wasn't for Chelsey's fast thinking and great connections. I planned for my wedding to take place on the beach and while living in Montana during a pandemic. Even though we were on the other side of the country, Chelsey worked hard to ensure everything was perfect. We had to change the size of our wedding multiple times due to covid and when we arrived in the Outer Banks the weather did not cooperate and we had to move our wedding date from Sunday to Monday. These hiccups didn't stop Chelsey from ensuring we had a great wedding. Chelsey always worked quickly to get vendors on board and moved. Chelsey was successful in moving a big chunk of my vendors and had excellent recommendations for replacements for those that we couldn't get to move (catering and hair). We had to roll with the punches and Chelsey was on top of it all. She even created two timelines as we ended up having our original catering on Sunday as a rehearsal dinner since they couldn't move to Monday. My other vendors raved about Chelsey's communication and interaction with them. If you want a wedding planner who has great connections, can roll with the punches, and gives you absolute peace of mind so you can enjoy your day then Chelsey is your gal!
So professional and just fantastic to work with!!! Made the whole day go so smooth!!! Couldn’t have done it without her!!!!
It was an absolute pleasure working with Chelsey and her team! Our original wedding date was nixed by hurricane Florence in September 2018, and Chelsey immediately went into triage mode to re-plan the wedding of our dreams. We were married within 6 weeks of the original date, with all the same vendors at the same location! Chelsey kept us at ease through the whole process, showed true professionalism, and made sure our day was special. When a flower hair piece didn't show up she improvised using part of the altar decor, her team coordinated grabbing water at the last minute for guests arriving to the reception, and used our back-up rain plan for the venue when a Nor'easter rolled through to name a few wins of the day. We cannot recommend Oak & Brine enough!

A touch southern, a bit salty, all coastal
