Oak & Brine is a wedding lifestyle brand offering planning and management ("day-of"), photo booth rentals, and design services in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. A touch southern, a bit salty, all coastal.
Born and raised outside of Washington DC, this part-time city girl is now unleashing her coastal southern tendencies on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. My passion for creativity and nature made the Outer Banks the perfect place to grow and nurture my wedding lifestyle brand. (And incidentally, did I mention I met the love of my life on this beach when I was 15? Go ahead and queue The Notebook scenes.)
My background in catering, marketing, planning, creative and floral design, combined with a unique perspective and focused attention to detail makes Oak & Brine your perfect partner in bringing your wedding day vision to life.
Oak & Brine is here to save you time, money, and stress! As your partner in the Wedding Planning process, we are here to help you every step of the way, from your initial planning decisions straight through to the moment your last guest departs. Our expertise ensures that your wedding day is the perfect representation of you and your partner during your unique celebration.
Vendor selection, contract review, RSVP management, and design and décor covers just a few of the items we passionately organize. You name it, and we will be by your side with our interactive planning tools every step of the way.
Wedding Planning and Design fees are entirely custom, based on where you are in your planning and what you need.
Wedding Management is the perfect service for couples who are excited to plan their own wedding, but need some professional assistance throughout the planning process and the wedding day.
When we begin working together, you receive unlimited email access to Chelsey and our amazing Aisle Planner software that includes a personalized and detailed checklist (amongst many other organizing tools) to keep things on track. Six weeks prior to your wedding day, we will meet (in person or via video/conference call) to discuss the fine details. We work with the information you provide to formulate a master plan for your entire wedding day, allowing you to rest assured the details are set in place and managed professionally. We become the point person for your vendors, creating an extremely detailed and easy to read timeline, handling minor issues that may arise. Allowing Oak & Brine to manage the behind-the-scenes coordination allows you to truly enjoy your shining moment.
Our Wedding Management services are much more comprehensive than most, so in order to maintain the quality of care and attention you deserve, we take on a limited number of Management clients per year.
With face centering technology we always capture a perfectly framed shot that you’re able to send to your email and/or cell phone, upload to social media, and print on predesigned graphic prints in a variety of sizes. Customization is our primary focus, matching each photo booth to your theme, personality and crowd.
Photo Booth includes choice of stock backdrops, box of props, a staff member to facilitate photo booth use, graphic photo prints, unlimited uploads to email/cell phone with a dedicated WIFI hotspot onsite, and a custom link to photos for all guests to access post event. See our website for pricing.

Don't hesitate book Chelsey
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!Sent on 10/12/2020

Wedding Remix Success!
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!Sent on 01/03/2020
