I can’t say enough about my experience at Separk Mansion. We were really picky on what we wanted in a wedding venue and wanted the wedding planning process to be as simple as possible. We immediately knew after leaving our tour that there was no other place than Separk to have our wedding. When we first met Emily she was the kindest person. What I liked most about Emily is that she was not looking to make a sale. You could see that she genuinely loved the mansion and all it had to offer and wanted us to be taken care of, regardless of who we picked to host. The all-inclusive package at Separk blew away any other all-inclusive packages in the area. What I liked most about Separk Mansion was how much time they invested in ME and my wedding. I always felt like my wedding was the only wedding booked there, even though they of course had one or two weddings each week. The constant checking in and wedding meetings were super helpful. I loved being able to talk all the details with just ONE person rather than many many vendors. When it came to decorations I loved being able to drop off everything the night before and knew it would be taken care of and set up when we got back. When we arrived the morning of the wedding we had snacks and beverages waiting for us, I felt like a queen. I can’t stress enough how much Emily took care of for us, it was literally everything. I did not have one worry or concern the day of my wedding. Due to Separk Mansion’s meticulous planning NOT ONE THING WENT WRONG on my day, which is CRAZY!! Emily and the entire Separk team felt like family at the end of the night and I am really lucky they were a part of our big day. If you are looking for a wedding venue that makes sure you are taken care of from start to finish and makes you feel like the only bride in the world then Separk Mansion is the place for you!Sent on 03/10/2020

Separk Mansion-beautiful venue
I fell in love with Separk Mansion as soon as I walked in the door. I had viewed 5 venues for our wedding and as soon as I saw the staircase/chandeliers/beautiful hardwood floors I was hooked. Caylea was our planner and she was AWESOME to work with! She was so quick to respond to emails and offer ideas/suggestions. I felt like I made a friend through working with her. Our wedding day was gorgeous! Highly recommend!Sent on 03/23/2021

We had the most amazing wedding day at Separk! My husband and I had to postpone, like many other couples, so it made planning a little difficult for a few months, but in the end everything was great. Meredith was very helpful and so great to work with! We both work in the wedding industry and will definitely recommend Separk to clients in the future.Sent on 03/09/2021

I have worked with the staff at Separk Mansion multiple times and have to tell you that they are amazing! Brittanie is great at communicating prior to the event and is an excellent problem solver while doing it all with a smile. The venue is very open and has lots of natural lighting that adds to the charm of the venue. The inside décor is very neutral so it lends itself to lots of decorating options for brides.
Separk Mansion is one of my favorite venues in the area! It's such a hidden gem. The house is beautifully preserved and the staff do an amazing job of making sure your wedding goes off without a hitch!
