    Magical, special and memorable!

    The Heitman House was absolutely wonderful! We enjoyed every minute of our special day! The wedding coordinator CeCe was fabulous! She was so good at her job and made me feel at ease! Jeremy the owner was so awesome! He answered every question I had with responsivness and polietness. We were treated so wonderfully by the staff! Dennis the chef made fantastic food! We had a pasta bar and it was delicious! I am so grateful my parents provided for me to enjoy my wedding day at the best venue in town. I am still beaming with joy reminiscing on the day and every special moment that was created! I did not feel stressed that day, now leading up to it was a differant story lol. Seriously though this team is awesome and I would HIGHLY recommend using The Heitman House for your special day too!

    Incredible

    Working with Jeremy felt just like we were planning our wedding with a friend. He explained everything really well and genuinely had our best interest in mind and worked with us to make sure we were able to get what we needed. I can't even begin to explain HOW incredible it is to have so many vendors in one. Saves so much time and stress.

    Thank you Christine! We look forward to continuing to make your wedding planning process as smooth as possible and can't wait to celebrate the special day with you!!
    Jeremy and Cece
