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 is a dream!
After our original venue unexpectedly closed its doors, my fiance and I were completely panicked about finding a new location for our wedding. We emailed the fabulous team at Separk Mansion, toured the facility, and booked with them within just a few weeks. Everyone we worked with- from our assigned coordinator, Caylea, to the owner, Tim- went above and beyond to accommodate us and our situation. When the COVID pandemic hit, they jumped into action and kept us informed of our options along the way. They were professional, supportive, and kind throughout the entire ordeal. We could not have asked for a more beautiful backdrop for the most special day of our lives! Our wedding photos were absolutely gorgeous, as well as my bridal portraits- there are so many beautiful locations for pictures on property. We highly recommend Separk Mansion and cannot thank them enough for their dedication to making our day everything we dreamed of and more!Sent on 09/14/2020

Amazingly helpful and flexible
My husband and I started planning our big 150 person wedding with them a year ago. Obviously a lot of that was sidetracked by COVID. Separk and Caylea have been incredibly helpful and flexible throughout this whole process! They went above and beyond to make sure our day was as close to our vision as possible. They did offer us to move the date, but we decided we would rather switch to a smaller ceremony. The day went off without a hitch and better than I could imagine. Seriously, if anything went wrong I had no clue about it because they were there to manage and make sure things stayed on track. I can't imagine any other venue being as flexible and responsive as Separk was!Sent on 08/17/2020
This venue offers the below options which may impact pricing:
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!
