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!

If only I could give more than 5 stars!! My husband and I got married at Separk this past weekend, and words cannot describe just how incredible this venue is. We used their all-inclusive package, which was not only extremely affordable especially given the value of what's included, but made everything so much easier because the package comes with wedding coordination by one of Separk's amazing event managers, delicious food, open beer & wine bar, a gorgeous cake as well as tons of decor from Separk. The venue itself is absolutely stunning -- we knew our wedding had to be at Separk from the first time we saw photos. It ended up raining on our wedding day, so we had to forego the outside ceremony, but fortunately Separk has an equally gorgeous inside ceremony location. There is not one location inside or outside the mansion that is not picture-perfect -- even the bathrooms are beautiful! Kinsey at Separk was our coordinator, and she was absolutely incredible. She took amazing care of us both leading up to the wedding and at the wedding itself. Kinsey knows exactly what she is doing, so the bride and groom can just relax and know that she will take care of the details. I am just so, so happy that we chose Separk Mansion as our wedding venue, and I know that if you do the same you will not be disappointed. Thank you, Separk Mansion!!
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!
