I honestly don’t even know where to start when it comes to explaining how amazing of a venue Separk is. I was an out of town bride planning a pretty large wedding, so things were pretty stressful. The second I toured the mansion and met Brittanie I had made my decision. The all-inclusive package was just what I needed. I really needed a wedding planner but didn’t want to pay that extra expense and after meeting Brittanie I knew she would take care of everything. Choosing this venue was the absolute only decision I was 100% confident in making throughout the whole wedding planning process. I ended up working mostly with Kinsey. Holy moly she was my go-to for everything. I was e-mailing her and calling so many times a week and she just took care of every question I could possibly imagine. And the day of, everyone says so many things will go wrong… literally NOTHING went wrong. I was not stressed at all! Kinsey had it ALL under control. Even things I didn’t even know were happening! I also cannot say enough about how beautiful the venue is. We had an outdoor ceremony and all my family and friends haven’t stopped talking about how beautiful it was. The garden area for cocktail hour was stunning, literally looked like it was from a movie, and the chandeliers. need I say more? This place is stunning and timeless. I honestly just want to do it all over again because it was such an amazing experience! If you’re looking for a stress free wedding venue that is absolutely GORGEOUS and want to work with honest, reliable down to earth girls this is the venue for you!Sent on 07/23/2018

Perfect setting and helpful coordinators!!
I can’t not say enough about how amazing Separk is - from the first tour of the stunning venue, to planning, to our actual wedding - it is perfect!! Brittanie is awesome! The venue comes with coordination, which is something I cannot emphasize you need most in your planning process!! The coordinators work for the venue and know alllllll the logistics. Everything from coordinating with my other vendors leading up to the event so I didn’t have to worry about it, helping set up, executing a perfect ceremony, even bustling my dress - the ladies here know what they are doing and your day will run smoothly! On top of all of that, the house is beautiful! I knew I wanted an outdoor wedding but given that I got married in March, the weather could do anything. Separk has so many options for indoor and outdoor ceremonies/receptions that I was not the least bit worried about the weather leading up to the wedding. I knew my back-up indoor option was just as pretty as their outdoor space.Sent on 05/08/2019

I could not have picked a more perfect place for my wedding! Separk was everything I wanted in a venue and the staff are amazing and so easy to work with! I did the all inclusive package and this made wedding planning so much easier. Before I found Separk I felt very overwhelmed but after choosing them as my venue I felt at ease! Brittanie was my event manager and she was amazing! I highly recommend Separk to all future brides!Sent on 03/20/2019
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!
