The distinctive event venue offers indoor and outdoor wedding reception options including an atrium that is available year-round, so guests can comfortably enjoy the beauty of any of Chicago's seasons during a wedding reception. In addition to modern climate control, the atrium has tile flooring, an elegant wooden dance floor, state of the art lighting and WiFi.

Along with a deep and entertaining history, Danada House also boasts one of the most beautiful views available to an outdoor wedding venue near Chicago. In 1980, the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County purchased the home built by the Rice's and the 780 surrounding acres it sits on, including its out buildings and a 23-stall Kentucky style stable. As a neighbor to Danada House, the active forest preserve is also home to the Danada Equestrian Center and a 35-acre prairie restoration initiative. Guests at Danada House are privy to all of the beautiful indigenous wildlife of Illinois including many birds, trees and grasses protected by the Forest Preserve District.

Absolutely stunning.

The Danada House was absolutely beautiful. The quaint little rooms as you enter the house lead to a glass hallway and then to the glass Atrium. You feel as though you鈥檙e outside, in fact we even saw a deer walk by the window. Jill was a dream to work with.

Absolutely Beautiful Venue

We are so happy we chose Danada house as our reception venue! The background of trees was impeccable with our photographer and videographer. The atrium location was so large and open, with BEAUTIFUL lighting. We couldn't be happier with how the reception looked overall. I personally like that the bathrooms were separated from the dining and dancing area, and there are great options for those with disabilities (large stall, easy access, multiple stalls). The bridal suite is absolutely gorgeous and was phenomenal to use as reprieve during the ceremony to collect myself (we did not get ready there, though). Wish I was getting married again so I could experience the beauty of this venue one more time!

A dream come true...

Danada House was the ideal venue for our wedding. The house was charming, elegant, and was the perfect atmosphere for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Our caterer and photography made the most of the location: our guests could move inside and out of the house from one comfortable spot to the next while our photographer captured the beautiful setting.

Danada House was our dream wedding venue and it was everything we hoped it would be.

What a great wedding venue! Fourth Estate Audio's DJs have been performing at Danada House since way back when its reception hall was just a big white tent. And through the years, every facet of every event has been consistently handled with professionalism and personal service. The garden is truly a dream setting for a summer wedding ceremony; the mansion provides an elegant atmosphere for cocktails; then it's into the reception hall for dinner and dancing in the round. I can't say enough about all the great parties there that we've been privileged to participate in. Don't change a thing! Danada House is perfect!
