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.

Beautiful, Reasonably-Priced Wedding Venue
We had our wedding at the Danada House in August 2018. We chose the Danada House because it was more reasonably-priced than other locations we had looked at in the city, and because more was included in the rental price (such as the tables and chairs for the reception). We had both our wedding ceremony and reception on-site at the Danada House. We were able to book the venue well in advance of our wedding, and were able to easily re-negotiate how long we would be renting the space on the day (our original reservation had our rental time starting at 4PM, but we eventually changed the start time to 11AM). Jill and the other staff at the Danada House were very helpful and always answered our questions in a timely and professional manner. The success and enjoyment of our wedding were due in part to us choosing the Danada House. It's a beautiful venue for a wedding. We would definitely recommend the Danada House for weddings (both ceremony and reception).

My daughter's wedding was last Friday August 10. So happy that we chose this venue. They were married under the two oak trees on a perfect summer evening. To be able to have everything at the house (Bridal party suites to dress, photos taken on the beautiful grounds, cocktail party on the gorgeous patios and the reception in the atrium) We couldn't have picked a more perfect venue. The grounds were magnificent and we received so many compliments with regard to the venue that everyone who attended would recommend Danada House to anyone.

Jill and the entire Danada House team (and location) were absolutely amazing. Growing up in the area I knew I had to get married at Danada House. Crazy enough, when I went for a tour in December of 2016 to look at summer of 2018, only a few days were available (July 13 and July 20- only fridays). Pro tip- while it is said no dates are reserved (by deposit) until 18 months out- they begin taking names closer to 3 years out. I wish I had known this ahead of time. Nevertheless, our July 20 wedding was beautiful despite the downpour (that forced the ceremony to be relocated inside last minute). Because of the house location and covered areas, we were able to do nearly all of our pictures outside just before the rain started and in-between downpours. Jill was easy to communicate with on scheduling a rehearsal (also inside last minute), allowing me to book the house for an extra hour the week of for picture options day of, and offering suggestions for vendors.
I would highly recommend Danada House to anyone looking for a beautiful locations rain or shine, and their recommended vendors (Angeli's, o'cie floral, DJs for You, Robb Davidson Photography).
Thanks again Jill and the entire team!
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!
Great Wedding and Events Venue for all seasons. The best summer wedding I ever seen in my life. Just picture the grounds in full bloom,sparkling with floral and a beautiful sunny day with a musician playing flamenco on his guitar ,while the bride arrives in her carriage. Nothing else needs to be said. Love It, Sam
Danada is one of our favorite venues. A perfect setting for brides who want a beautiful outdoor ceremony and a pavilion that is number one in our books. Jill is a joy to work with.
