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

Everything we could’ve dreamed of!
As soon as we stepped foot on the mansion grounds we knew this place was perfect for our big day. The mansion is gorgeous and the perfect back drop to any type of wedding. The all inclusive package made everything so easy to plan and all the vendors were wonderful and high quality. The wedding coordinators Emily and Kinsey were the biggest help in ironing out the fine details and making sure everything went as planned. They were completely supportive, patient and willing to accommodate anything for us. They made the day so much easier by keeping us on schedule, coordinating with all vendors and making us feel at ease.Sent on 08/26/2019
I can’t imagine a better place to get married. Thank you Separk!

The most stunning venue with the best staff - couldn’t have been more perfect!
I could not have better things to say about having our wedding at Separk! Not only is it an absolutely stunning venue (we have gotten compliments from so many of our guests) but every piece of the wedding planning process is executed flawlessly. We worked with Kinsey from the time we toured the venue, to pre wedding meetings, to her being our day of coordinator. I am naturally a worrier and Kinsey answered every single question I had prior to the wedding and has such a sense of calmness about her. The day of the wedding we did a switch up to have the ceremony inside due to storms in the area and it couldn’t have been run smoother, everything was on time and there was never any confusion by anyone in the wedding party. I couldn’t recommend having your wedding here more if I tried!Sent on 08/28/2019
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!
