I was first introduced to the wedding industry providing makeup services to brides across the Gulf Coast. I loved preparing brides before their big day and enjoyed sharing my creativity as well. While planning my own wedding from start to finish, I fell in love with the planning process and quickly realized I had a strong intuition for organization, planning, design and details. It felt like the wedding industry was screaming my name & I quickly found myself in the perfect world to offer my passion & creativity to excited couples across the Gulf Coast. 

After studying English, Education & Communications from The University of West Florida I graduated and started Chelsea McBrien Weddings & Events & never looked back! In my second year of business my company was named Pensacola's Best Wedding Planning service. I mean it when I say my clients are truly the best. I couldn't be more thankful for this dream job. I also truly love tasting every cake at every wedding. It's a real moment for me and I love standing back at the end of a perfect wedding with a big grin on my face knowing my bride is her most happiest!

Trust me, I know planning a wedding can be stressful and time-consuming; hand the chaos to me, & with my creative passion, I will help you create the most stunning wedding and/or event imaginable. Sit back, relax, pop open the champagne, & know that I will take care of everything you need.

When Iโ€™m not behind my portfolio & laptop, you can find me out & about with my husband and three girls, Molly, Everley & Ellanore. We love traveling & going on adventures. We take total advantage of the abundance of sunshine every chance we get.
