How long have you been involved in weddings on the Outer Banks?
My name is Chelsey Wince, Owner and Lead Planner for Oak & Brine. I’ve been involved in Outer Banks weddings since 2017 although my background in catering, marketing, planning, creative and floral design was established prior.
What makes the Outer Banks a premier location for destination weddings?
A destination wedding on the Outer Banks has something for everyone: adventure, history, relaxation and romance. From Ocracoke to Corolla, visitors find themselves surrounded by natural beauty. My personal testimonial to Outer Banks’ romance: I met the love of my life here when I was 15 years old!
What is unique about your business? What are you known for?
Oak & Brine is on the cutting edge of the wedding planning industry.
Once we begin working together, you’ll receive unlimited email access to Chelsey and our amazing Aisle Planner software. Aisle Planner incorporates many organizational tools including a personalized and detailed checklist to keep wedding to do’s in order. Six weeks prior to your wedding day, we will meet, in person or via video/conference call, to discuss details. We don’t simply plan and coordinate, we offer Wedding Management — the perfect service for couples who are excited to plan their own wedding, but need some professional assistance throughout the process.
What are you most looking forward to about the 2020 Wedding Weekend? Do you have any advice for a couple booking your services?
Destination wedding planning requires local knowledge. We become the point person for vendors, creating a detailed timeline, and handling minor issues that may arise.
Our Wedding Planning and Design fees are entirely custom, based on your needs and where you are in your planning.
We’ll tailor-make a unique plan to ensure your wedding day is the ideal representation of you and your partner.
Come to the show prepared with lots of questions. Take notes, talk openly with individual vendors in order to create the right fit. We can’t wait to meet you and start planning your OBX wedding!
What other information must a couple know about you?

Our Photo Booth includes your 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.
