Grand Tasting Event at Separk Mansion in Gastonia, NC 


March 16, 2023

The Grand Tasting Event at Separk Mansion is always a wonderful (and delicious!) event. I was absolutely honored when they asked me to come back and photograph this winter’s semi-annual Grand Tasting Event for their couples. I love this event because it’s just a lot of fun. Couples who are hosting their weddings here are able to come in, meet some great vendors, and taste food from local catering companies. It’s a really great way for couples to make connections and some final wedding decisions. 

Separk Mansion Wedding Inspiration

Before the event began, I was able to photograph a sweet couple who was willing to model for us! It was a great way to capture some of the beautiful decor the local vendors put together and also create more inspiration for future couples getting married at Separk Mansion. We captured the bride and groom both in and outside the mansion, including on my favorite spot – the outdoor patio. I always love any chance I get to work here and be inspired by these beautiful grounds! 

During the event, I captured all of the couples having a great time. It was so nice to chat with them and hear what was popular. Of course, all of the food was delicious but it’s neat to see what people are liking most! I even got to see my sweet couple, Rochelle and Craig! I won’t be photographing their wedding here because of my pregnancy, but I loved getting to catch up with them! During the event, the couples also got to play Name that Tune with the DJ and were able to choose free upgrades for their wedding. 

Seriously, the Grand Tasting Event is not something to be missed if you’re going to be married at Separk Mansion! I hope you enjoy a peek into this year’s event!!
