My husband and I got married at Separk Mansion on May 6, 2017 and it was nothing less than perfect! From my first tour at Separk, I knew it was where I wanted to get married. It it absolutely stunning inside and out, with character at every turn and in every room. I loved having... Read More the extra large bridal area upstairs that was separated from the grooms/groomsmen's area. The grand staircase makes for beautiful photos and the perfect grand entrance. Brittanie, and everyone at Separk, made planning my wedding so easy and so fun. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we had the perfect experience. We chose their "all-inclusive" package with some upgrades and it was one of the best decisions I could have made in planning my wedding. All of the vendors that work with Separk are professional and produce quality services. It made the planning part so stress-free for me. For things that weren't included in the package (such as photographer and DJ), Brittanie helped to coordinate those times and communicate with everyone, making sure all vendors were on the same page. We truly could not have asked for a more perfect wedding experience. Thank you so much to Brittanie, Kinsey, Tim, and Shannon for helping make mine and my husband's wedding dreams come true!

Being from Gastonia, I knew that I wanted to have my wedding somewhere local that had a lot of charm. After first finding Separk listed as a venue online, I made an appointment to check it out. I walked in, and was blown away by the beauty of the mansion. It was truly... Read More breathtaking. We booked the all-inclusive package soon after, and had the absolute pleasure of working with Brittanie and Kinsey. 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!

Beautiful, amazing, elegant, luxurious, tasteful, fantastic, were just a few of the words I kept hearing our guests use to describe Separk this past Saturday night for our daughter's wedding reception. When we first met with the owner, Shannon, a year ago, we had no idea our... Read More event would turn out so perfect. She carefully explained the entire process and the documents that we signed were very thorough and left nothing undefined. She was very easy to communicate with when we had questions. The best thing she did for us was suggest one of her day of coordinators (DOC). It was truly a delight to work with our DOC Brittanie as well as Holly and their other staff members. We were a little different in that we were having our ceremony at a church 25 miles away, so we were not on site the day of to finalize all of the tiny details. Brittanie called ALL vendors at least twice to insure they knew what to do, when to do it, and where to do it. We took to SUV loads of decorations and props over the day before and reviewed with Brittanie approximately where we would like it placed. We were a little worried that it wouldn't be just like we wanted but we were so wrong. She text us pictures on our way over and they were perfect. When we arrived it was as if our daughter had been transported into the dream she had had on many occasions. The best part about working with Separk and their staff was that my wife and I got to enjoy the event. We let Brittanie worry about what was going on behind the scenes and we spent time with our guests and enjoying the night. We had an absolute blast and would not change a single thing if we were doing it again this weekend. My friends know that I am one to try and pinch pennies, but for this event we hired the best caterer, the best florist, the best photographer, the best baker, and we had the event at the best location in the Charlotte area. I spent way too much money and blew the budget that I swore we would keep, but we created so many good memories this past weekend it was all worth it! You only get one opportunity to do your daughters wedding right, and Separk helped us surpass our expectations. Cheers Y'all!!!

Looking for wedding venues in Charlotte can be quite the task- unless you want to book a country club or hotel uptown.

I had a lot of ideas and Brittanie really helped make everything exactly the way I wanted it.

I could not have asked for a better wedding day than the one that Separk Mansion gave me. My husband, Cameron, and I live in South Florida now, and working long-distance with Brittanie at Separk was a dream. As you can imagine, I was a bit nervous as a bride trying to plan a... Read More wedding from 10 hours away. Brittanie was so flexible with setting up conference calls to go over things, meeting with my mother who lives locally in Belmont, and allowing my photographer and I to book a last-minute bridal portrait shoot when we discovered I would be in town long enough to do one. We met twice in person (once about two months before the wedding, and once the week of the wedding), and Brittanie was incredibly accommodating in working with our schedules for when we could meet when we were in town. On our wedding day (Sunday, September 4), everything flowed so seamlessly. Brittanie and staff had a table set up for my bridesmaids and I to have lunch and brought us a bottle of champagne to enjoy while we were getting ready. Anything that I needed to have done or any coordination that needed to happen with the vendors, was taken care of. All that I had to do was relax and get ready, and Brittanie would pop in from time to time to give us a timeframe, see if there was anything we needed, and make sure she was sending the photographer and videographer where they needed to be to capture specific shots that we wanted. I am sure that there was so much going on behind the scenes that we couldn't see, but Cameron and I still cannot stop talking about how perfectly the Separk staff took care of every little detail of our wedding day. Our only job was to visit with friends and family and enjoy ourselves, and Brittanie came and got us or our family whenever we needed to be somewhere else or do something else. Our wedding guests were thrilled with the pure decor of the venue. Separk has a unique combination of the ethereal, romantic garden ceremony space and the expansive, glamorous indoor reception space with large sparkling chandeliers, beautiful hardwood floors with grand staircase, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Our friends and family were able to see Separk's beauty from the surface, but Cameron and I truly had the chance to see Separk's beauty from the inside, as well. Their staff is incredibly caring, loves what they do, and loves to work as hard as they can to make their brides and grooms happy. We are so fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet Brittanie, Shannon, and the rest of the Separk staff and are so thrilled with our decision to have our wedding and reception at Separk Mansion. Would highly recommend to couples looking for a romantic venue that you can truly transform into whatever vision you have for your wedding!
