    Blown away

    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!

    Couldn’t have asked for anything better!

    Any exception that my husband and I had for our wedding, Separk exceeded! The entire process from booking the venue to the end of our wedding was stress free and we really enjoyed working with the entire separk team, but especially Caylea, our wedding coordinator. Caylea was responsive, friendly, incredibly easy to work with and professional and we knew we were in good hands. There is not a single thing that I felt like we were missing or wished would have happened differently. We loved the grand tasting, it was so fun to try everything, meet venders, and see the venue decorated from top to bottom. The meetings with Caylea prior to our wedding were so helpful, without being overwhelming and that was amazing. She made it so easy for us to pick items such as linens and center pieces, and was so accommodating to anything we wanted to add such as picture frames for the mantle, signs for the gift table, guest book, bar etc, and helped set up the cigar area on the front veranda during the reception. Caylea went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly and the day was absolutely perfect. Not a single thing went wrong, our guests had an amazing time, and there was not a single thing that wasn’t thought of so we didn’t have to worry at all. Their all inclusive weddings are absolutely the way to go, but you can still add upgrades or customize the wedding to feel like it’s unique to whatever you and your partner are looking for. I cannot recommend them enough.!

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.
