There was bright blue skies and the warm feeling of love on this delightful December day at the Heitman House in Fort Myers.  The early Twentieth Century home is located in the Downtown River District and had spectacular views of the Caloosahatchee River.  The venue had plenty of charm and history, just like Katie and Chase.  Hope Hederson Artistry did Katie’s hair and makeup, and she looked absolutely stunning throughout the entire day.  Chase looked equally handsome, and you could just tell by the look on his face that he was so happy that their wedding day was finally here.  Katie and Chase kept the tradition of not seeing each other before the wedding. The couple wrote love notes to one another and stood on opposite sides of a door as they exchanged them before the ceremony.  They held hands during this touching moment as they prepared themselves for what would be the best day of their lives.

The venue looked fresh and crisp, with pops of yellow, orange, and coral in the floral arrangements created by Isn’t She Lovely florists.  Katie and Chase became emotional as they first laid eyes on each other.  It was a heartwarming moment when Katie began to walk down the aisle, and Set Free Photography captured every special moment.  The couple did a foot washing during the ceremony, which signifies servanthood in marriage.  After the ceremony, Katie and Chase had their pictures taken both at the Heitman House and in the Downtown Fort Myers area, while the guests enjoyed a cupcake recption.  Afterwards, everyone headed to Paseo, a luxurious community in Fort Myers.  Cocktail hour began at The Paseo Pub, which is located in the community’s village center.  Then everyone moved into the ballroom, and shortly after Katie and Chase arrived.  There was cake, smores, and ice cream for dessert.  The cake was created by Lea McQuinn, and had lavish gold detailing.  A smores station was set up in the ballroom, and Ice cream was served at The Ice Cream Shop, which is located in Paseo’s village center as well.  The sweet treats were followed by the garter toss and the bouquet toss.  Katie and Chase spent the rest of the night dancing and celebrating together with their family and friends.
