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 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.

    Beautiful setting with laid-back elegance

    Danada House was absolutely gorgeous: the grounds (lilacs blooming in late May!), the house, the reception atrium (those lights!). The staff was very friendly and communicative. We were able to select our own caterer (with their suggestions) which was very important to us to have that level of choice. Just know that you are only renting the space, there are no other services included for wedding planning besides suggestions for vendors. You do get an Event Host on the day-of who directs vendors and helps with things like lights and timing for the ceremony procession. The getting-ready area upstairs was very large for the girls (less so for the guys) and just as beautiful as the rest of the venue with antique furniture, etc. If you want a vintage-y (or even rustic with the horse barns!) wedding vibe, this is your place. You can choose pretty much anywhere to have your ceremony, and the grounds are huge. They also host ceremonies in the beautiful atrium (reception location) in case of inclement weather, which was a huge factor in choosing this venue since they had a back-up. Thankfully our rose garden ceremony was on a beautiful day! Would recommend Danada to anyone!

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!
