    Simply beautiful

    The Heitman House was a dream wedding venue. Our guests raved all night long at how elegant and beautiful the Heitman House was! The venue went above and beyond our expectations, and it was absolutely stunning seeing it with all the finishing touches and brought to life. Cece & Jeremy are both so wonderful to work with. Cece was amazing start to finish in helping me plan and execute my dream day, and was incredible day-of ensuring all was good to go! I couldn't say enough amazing things about the Heitman House - thank you all for making my dreams come true!!!

    Beautiful Venue!

    The Heitman house is a venue we had attended a few weddings at prior to our engagement. We toured the venue with Jeremy (the owner) and decided that day that we could really picture ourselves getting married here!

    We postponed our wedding due to the pandemic from January 2021 to January 2022 and they helped accommodate us flawlessly. We got married at the courthouse on our original date and The Heitman House team allowed us and our parents to come to the venue for a mini photoshoot at our empty venue which made the day so special. Once we finally had our wedding celebration is more beautiful than I ever imagined. Although it ended up being the coldest day in Fort Myers in the last 10 years, the team was able to get lots of heaters to help keep our guests warm at the last minute!

    We highly recommend Heitman House for all of your wedding needs!! They have a great list of preferred vendors that were all just as amazing!
