    Best in the business

    The amount of effort that went into our wedding is unprecedented. A misfortunate and devastating hurricane tore Fort Myers apart just 18 days before our destination wedding. It wasn't even supposed to happen at this venue, it was supposed to happen across the street. That venue, unfortunately was pretty beat up after the storm. They assured us it would be everything we wanted and the show could go on but instead at the Alderman House, though it didn't make it unscathed either. Unbelievable! We are so grateful for the effort that went into our wedding. The venue was amazing. Shout out to Jessica, she was the best wedding coordinator! She had no preparation and neither did we. She made sure everything went smooth and the day was incredible.
    This venue exceeded our expectations, the food was awesome the DJ knew how to work the people on the dance floor.
    You want to do business with these people they are all in!

    Thank you

    heitman house

    Our venue helped set us up for a great wedding day. We were looking for something to host our out town guests with a unique environment, the beautiful historic house and the views over the water were perfect! Unfortunately, hurricane Ian did some damage but the staff was very communicative and renovated quickly to host all the future brides, the house turned out even better than before! The staff were all so helpful the day of! The food was AMAZING and accommodating for special diets; the guests kept talking about the food for a few days.
