Summer Wedding at Separk Mansion in Gastonia NC | Jessica + Jansen 


August 9, 2022

Jessica and Jansen are married! You might remember these two from their Downtown Matthews engagement session. The joy we felt during their engagement session definitely overflowed into their wedding day. That’s one thing I love about Jessica and Jansen – they are just such fun, happy people and I’m thrilled I was able to photograph their beautiful summer wedding at Separk Mansion this year! 

Summer Wedding at Separk Mansion

Jessica and Jansen brought their personalities to Separk Mansion for their wedding day. From the cutest little golf-themed seating cards to honor Jansen’s love of golf, to a fun liner in Jansen’s jacket, everything felt so them. They chose a beautiful summer palette of pale green, navy, and ivory and it worked perfectly in the mansion! 

For their ceremony, they chose to use the indoor site at Separk Mansion. As much as I LOVE garden ceremonies, I’m enjoying a break from the heat with these indoor ceremonies. Jessica and Jansen are my second couple this summer to use that space, and I think it’s just beautiful. With so much natural light streaming in, it’s a gorgeous option for warmer months.

After their ceremony, we explored more of the grounds for their portraits. Although Jessica and Jansen did a first look, it’s still important to carve out more time together as husband and wife to let it soak in – and capture a few more portraits!! Because we spent time together before their ceremony, they actually got to attend most of their cocktail hour, too! It was awesome for both of them to have that extra time with their guests! 

Remember how I said Jessica and Jansen are just a ton of fun? Their reception was too! With lots of great music and fun glowsticks, their dance floor was packed all night long. I loved watching them party with their family and friends!! Congratulations, Jessica and Jensen! I’m so happy for you both and can’t wait to see where life takes you!
