My wedding at Separk was everything that I could have hoped for! I was so thankful to partner with Brittanie and Kinsey in making that day spectacular. I chose to get married indoors and on the main level, since it was a December wedding -- in front of the large window,... Read More underneath the chandelier. BEAUTIFUL! After the ceremony, the mansion team flipped the room in less than an hour, while my guests enjoyed a cocktail hour in the upstairs ballroom space. The night had a perfect flow to it, and it beautifully mimicked all that I had hoped for -- It would not have been possible without our gorgeous venue and the incredible team that they have there!!

Our wedding at Separk was absolutely perfect! From the moment we arrived on our wedding day, everything was taken care of. We had the most beautiful suite to get ready in, complete with champagne!

After arranging a tour with Brittanie, my fiancé and I were unable to find her for our 2pm appointment. Kinsey told us she was "on a tour and we could just hang out" until Brittanie finished. No problem! We gave ourselves a quick tour, and as I anticipated, I fell in love with... Read More the space. At about 2:40, I was ready to sign on the dotted line, but still no Brittanie. So my fiancé popped back upstairs to ask Kinsey if we should reschedule. She was wrapping up with a client, so she gave us a tour instead. It was during this tour that I realized that my non-negotiable for the day I have been dreaming of since I was 5 years old is customer service, and it is my opinion that this is something this duo is lacking. Brittanie didn't show up for the tour she scheduled with me (and confirmed the day before via email), and Kinsey seemed to me that she was not concerned about what we were looking for in a venue. She made me feel like we were an inconvenience to her for needing attention, which was such a bummer after falling in love with the space. No way in hell would I trust these two with such a special day. I was ready to increase my budget and change my wedding date just to use this space, and the lack of customer service was such a turn off that we will absolutely be using a different venue.

Every vendor that partners with Separk for the all-inclusive package was wonderful and professional. As someone who often feels overwhelmed about choices, it was so nice that everything was already picked out for us. It was so easy and relieved so much stress. When it came time for our wedding day, Brittanie and Kinsey were absolutely fabulous. While I was upstairs getting ready in the gorgeous bridal suite, the Separk team was making sure that everything downstairs and outside in the garden was perfect. As is typical in June, there was a chance of thunderstorms. Brittanie and Kinsey, as well as my whole wedding party, were watching the weather to see if we had a window of time that we could have the wedding outside. We managed to finish our outside ceremony with rain starting to fall about 5 minutes later. While this could seem stressful, Brittanie and Kinsey managed everything with ease. With the rain came a change in the schedule, but the team at Separk made everything perfect. Currey and I were able to fully enjoy spending time with our friends and family all because of the awesome people at the Mansion. Tears come to my eyes when I think about how wonderful our experience was at Separk. I would do that day over a million times! Thank you for making our best day spectacular!
