GORGEOUS venue and even BETTER staff and experience!
When looking for a wedding venue, we wanted something classy, timeless, elegant and ALL INCLUSIVE. If these things sound like something you want your wedding to be like, then look no further than Separk Mansion. Our day was perfect thanks to Emily and Kinsey effortlessly orchestrating vendors, set up, timeline and much more. Before our wedding day we met with Emily 3 times to ensure every detail was set to our liking. Emily perfected our timeline (down to the minute), gave advice about decor, gave us detailed outlines of the setup, and so much more. The meetings were priceless and it was even better that Emily and Kinsey were there on our wedding day from start to finish to ensure every detail was perfect. The caterer that the venue works with was AMAZING. We got so many compliments about how delicious the food was. We picked out the food at a tasting event held at the mansion and it was one of our favorite parts of the planning! I could truly go on and on about this amazing venue. The communication was amazing. Emily and Kinsey were so knowledgable about all things wedding. And best of all- the price. It truly was the best bang for our buck. The all-inclusive option took away so much stress from the planning process. I would recommend Separk Mansion to every bride-to-be and you can trust that your day will be perfect, too!Sent on 01/13/2020

We fell in love with Separk Mansion the moment we first pulled up to visit during our venue touring process! The venue is spacious and gorgeous inside and out. Our planner, Kinsey, was so on top of every detail throughout the entire process and we cannot rave enough about her - she really did make us feel so taken care of and our wedding day was so much fun, we didn't worry about a thing. Additionally, the preferred vendors that work with Separk were phenomenal, we just can't say enough good things. If we could give over 5 stars we absolutely would!Sent on 12/03/2019
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!
