Separk Mansion Wedding | Ashley & Dan

Separk Mansion Wedding | Ashley & Dan

Oh where do I begin?? I met Ashley last Summer where we immediately hit it off. Ashley is an interior designer, and fellow lover of all things white! In addition, we also share the same birthday, a college connection and – what made my husband the happiest – a fellow military family. I knew within 5 minutes I wanted to photograph her wedding. A few months later and we were trapsing around Uptown and Myers Park shooting their engagement session – which can be viewed {here}. Fast forward to this past Saturday – and we are at wedding day.

Ashley and Dan married on April 6th, 2018 at Separk Mansion in Gastonia, NC. If you have never seen Separk, it is a hidden (and extremely popular!) gem! This gorgeous mansion is the perfect venue for a lover of light and neutral colors. The girls started the morning with one of my favorite beautifiers, Lindsey – of Lovely by Lindsey. When they finished up they headed to the mansion were I met up with them. We had a fun morning of getting Ashley ready to walk the aisle and some much needed girl time! While the girls were enjoying their time, Dan and his groomsmen were kicking back in the room next door. Dan surprised his groomsmen with the sweetest, and largest, bottle opener I’ve ever seen!

Separk Mansion Wedding – Ceremony

Ya’ll know I LOVE a good ceremony, and I especially love Jewish ceremonies. While this one was not as formal as a traditional Jewish ceremony, it was certainly as beautiful. Separk Mansion holds a beautiful wedding ceremony outside on their sidelawn. The steps leading up to the alter provide the perfect accent to their lush greenery and delicate flowers. Ashley and Dan’s best friend Matt officiated the wedding, and Ashley and Dan (sweetest vows EVER) recited personal vows to love one another for the rest of their days.

Separk Mansion Wedding – Portaits

We got REALLY lucky with the rain holding off during the ceremony, but literally seconds after – the rain came, making our portraits confined to a space where there was cover. Because of the rain, the cocktail hour was also moved inside, nixing any chance of indoor portraits for this lovely bunch. However, another bonus to Separk Mansion – they have the most beautiful covered patio on the front side of their house, making it the perfect backdrop to knock out bridal party photos – as well as couples portraits. Are ya’ll picking up how much I love this venue?!

Separk Mansion Wedding – Reception

After a quick 30 minute portrait session (yes, you heard that right! We knocked out bridal party and couples portraits in roughly 30 minutes because this group were rockstars) it was time for introductions! Ashley and Dan were officially introduced as Mr. and Mrs. Sussman and kicked off their wedding reception with first dances and a delicious meal shared with their closest friends and family. They continued by dancing the night away and enjoying the laughter, love and happiness everyone deserves to experience on their wedding day. It was an honor and pleasure to photograph this wedding. To Ashley & Dan – I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness. You two are a perfect match, and one of the sweetest couples I have ever had the pleasure of working with!! Congratulations my friends!!

XOXO – Katy
