We hosted my daughter's ceremony and reception at Danada House last weekend. It was everything she dreamed of! The grounds and ceremony spaces (there were multiple ceremony spaces to choose from) were gorgeous! The cocktail hour was held in the house with seating available in the library and on the front porch. The Atrium was absolutely beautiful with all of the lighting and the floor to ceiling windows exposing the grounds outside. The staff was very helpful and always professional and pleasant to work with. Our guests were very impressed. The Wyndham Hotel was right next door and offered a very favorable group rate with a shuttle service provided to and from the venue. They do encourage you to select a caterer from their preferred vendors and they are all quite pricey, but I would highly recommend Marie's Catering from Willowbrook.

My husband and I just got married at the Danada House on August 8 of this year (2014) and it was amazing! Our day was spectacular and we were able to make it our own. Jill was always great throughout the entire process! She would answer all of our questions right away and made sure everything was going as planned. I loved this place the minute I saw it, I did not need to see another venue. Here you can decorate the way you want, bring in what food you want, basically tailor it they way you want it to look. This was very important to us to bring in our personality. I would highly recommend using the Danada House! Our guests loved the venue as well, saying it was the most beautiful place for a wedding!

We had our July 17th wedding here this year and cannot say enough good things about it!! We first booked after visiting in January shortly after becoming engaged. Neither one of us had been there before but the pictures online looked lovely and we liked that we could have the ceremony and reception at the same venue. It was covered with snow when we first went, and while they were showing us the atrium a deer came up to the back through the woods and you could see it through the windows! SOLD!
We came again in the spring and it was lovely, but then the week of our wedding when we came to set up it was AMAZING! Everything was in full bloom, even prettier than pictures! The bride's room is to die for, just a gorgeous place to set up in and made for THE BEST getting ready photos! The staff there is just wonderful and the vendors are amazing too (We used Chef by Request, whom we HIGHLY recommend for price and quality!)
The price was very reasonable, especially since we had our wedding on a Thursday, which also gave us plenty of flexibility as to the time frame we were able to book and work with.
We had an outdoor wedding, and they have a rain option of going inside the atrium, but the weather turned out amazing for our day.
Long before the wedding I knew we'd picked the perfect place because whenever i told even complete strangers where we were having our wedding, if they were from the area they would sigh and get this far away happy look in their eyes and say "oh that place is just wonderful" and give a list of the events they've been to there and how amazing they were.
All in all we had the perfect "Pintrest" wedding at the Dananda. When we booked it we couldn't even have imagined how perfect it was going to be. Everyone is still talking about it and telling us how beautiful it was two months later, as well as how convenient of a location it is. Several hotels in the area will shuttle your guests too and from the Danada for no extra cost if you reserve a wedding

Danada House is THE place to get married in the west Chicago suburbs. Their venue is one of a kind, offering natural beauty, seclusion and a lot of freedom to personalize the space. When you drive in, it’s like entering a world of your own—you almost forget you’re in the middle of a suburb. It’s wonderful that your party is the only one the grounds so you don’t have to compete with other weddings like you would at a banquet hall.

Many of my June 20, 2014 wedding guests had never been to Danada and raved about how beautiful the wedding was. The best part is you don’t have to break the bank with decorations because the space is so beautiful on its own. For our outdoor ceremony, we had four lanterns sitting on pillars and rose petals down the aisle and it was gorgeous. There are also a ton of different locations on the grounds for your pictures. I can’t wait to see all the unique shots that we’ll have… some even include horses!

The service at Danada is also exceptional. Jill is great to work with—she’s very organized responsive and answered many of my questions. Danada does book out very quickly so if you’re considering this venue, I recommend you visit as soon as possible to try to secure a date. Thank you so much for making my day so special!

This really is a wonderful place to get married. Both the grounds and the building itself are just so beautiful and full of character. The charm of the building means one really doesn't have to do too much decorating. The grounds have so many beautiful areas to take pictures in you will want to spend all day just taking pictures. At night the atrium lights make you feel as if in a fairy tale as the lights reflect in the window as if thousands of stars in the sky.
The staff that was on sight for the big day was really friendly and super helpful. The entire process with the Danada House was really an easy one, which i was so thankful for. And though some options with outside vendors might seem limiting they make it easier with their preferred vendor list.
Overall, my experience with the Danada House was a wonderful one and one i will remember for a life time!

Danada House is a magical place for a wedding reception. Our event was in November, so we didn't even get to enjoy the beautiful grounds and outdoor patios. Even so, it was a beautiful place for our event. Everyone loved the cocktail hour in the house. It had a homey feel to it, especially since we were able to decorate it with photos of the bride and groom and their families. Upstairs in the house was the most fantastic bridal party suite for photos, getting ready and just hanging out. The banquet area was also clean, spacious and so lovely! Everyone we dealt with was very helpful and professional.

I absolutely love this venue. I was lucky enough to be blessed with the most perfect weather for our wedding day, but regardless, the scenery is beautiful and I can't wait for my pictures to come back. there are multiple locations on site for pictures, formal and informal, a great set up for cocktail hour and reception, and a spacious upstairs for bustling and freshening up. The venue is perfect if you would like something unique and comfortable for your ceremony and/or reception, much better than a hotel or banquet hall. I got so many compliments from my guests that this was the best venue they had ever seen. Also you can pick from a handful of food vendors which is nice and the staff is incredibly helpful and friendly as well! I couldn't have been happier to share day at the danada house in Wheaton

Having my wedding at Danada House turned all of my wedding dreams into a reality. The grounds and gardens are absolutely gorgeous and offered so many amazing photo locations, and provided the perfect place for my outdoor ceremony. The spacious house is just wonderful and provided an ideal place for me and my entire bridal party to "beautify" and prepare for the day, as well as serve as the location for the cocktails. And the recently-added atrium was just the most beautiful reception location. The floor-to-ceiling windows and hanging lights made my reception truly magical! And working with the Danada House staff and preferred vendors was everything I could have hoped for. Everything went so smoothly and perfectly, and everyone was so friendly, helpful, and professional throughout the entire process. Danada House truly made my wedding a day to remember!

Jill at Danada house was unbelievable! She bent over backwards for me and accommodated me since I was an out of town bride (Seattle) She stayed later than business hours for meetings with us. I had some elaborate tree arch for my wedding ceremony and we weren’t sure how to get them there and set up the day of the wedding, but Danada rose to the occasion and let us bring it in a few days early and pick it up late too. My wedding was the same weekend as Prom. The staff was excellent about keeping the H.S. kids and parents off the property and away from the wedding. I would have never knew they were there except I saw them standing in the parking lot pouting.
The price seems high, but The staff was so amazing and flexible that it made it worth every last penny. If only I had pennies left!
If you are lucky enough to get into the venue, you're in great hands. It books up 15 months in advance. So don’t wait!

Sweet staff, answered all questions. House and grounds beautiful and clean. Nice bathrooms! Cozy feel, but spread out so guests can mingle. Great if you want to use an outside caterer! Very quick with return of deposit, too! Wish I had another huge event to plan because I would definitely go back. The area is a beautiful place to take pictures, barn and stables nearby. Beautiful bridal suite to get ready and suite for the groomsmen. Plenty of space for hair and makeup artists to spread out.

I had my wedding at the Danada House in October and let me tell you, this place is just gorgeous! I couldn't have asked for a better location. They remodeled everything there and the grounds are just so peaceful and amazing. I would not have changed a single thing about my wedding day but the events leading up to it were a bit stressful. Firstly, they are booked very far in advance. We had to wait almost two years to get in for October. Next, it is very difficult to get a hold of someone there in the office to ask questions or to deal with concerns. I would frequently call and nobody would answer the phone or return my calls when I left messages. Lastly, it is quite pricy. The person in charge told us that we should rent the house the entire day instead of just in the morning which ended up being like $2,000 more. The catering company then told us after we singed the contract that it wasn't necessary and that if you just rent it in the afternoon that they could set up in time and that all would be fine. Overall, I was super happy with how my wedding turned out... I just wish I wasn't inconvenienced so much.

The Danada House was the perfect place for us to have our wedding and reception. Everything was housed in the same location and it is SO beautiful! The staff was friendly and accommodating. When the weather was uncooperative, they moved our ceremony inside and it was just as beautiful and fantastic! Thank you for making our special day so special!

I got married at The Danada House and our day could not have been more perfect. We had great weather, great company and a great venue. We received many rave reviews from our guests about Danada House as well as the atrium where the reception was. While the price of the venue is a bit high, it's definitely worth the money.

The Danada House was wedding venue of our dreams. We were married in the west lawn and because the dense garden and landscaping is so beautiful we did not have to purchase ceremony flower. The staff was very attentive to our needs and they worked with the caterer to make sure everything went smoothly.But they are not the type of people that re going to wine and dine you. They are a not-for-profit organization
To fund the DuPage County forest reserve. They are not rude, they are very friendly. But the property sells itself so don't go in there expected to be catered to because it just wont happen. Its a refreshingly relaxed and comfortable experience working with Jill and Lori. The house is beautiful, but not stuffy and the grounds are perfectly manicured. The bride and groom rooms are upstairs on separete ends of the hallway are perfect for preceremony wedding party pictures as the decor is just fabulous and there is enough seating. When we looked at them in March of 2011 all the Saturdays until November of 2012 were already booked so we chose a

My husband and I got married at Danada House recently. The evening was perfect. Everything was set up exactly as we had requested before we arrived. The day-of staff member was lovely and offered to help with anything we needed. Our guests raved about the beauty of the facility and grounds.

The two staffers we were in contact with in the months before the event, however, were not very pleasant.

When we scheduled an initial meeting to discuss renting the facility, they didn't tell us that we weren't the only ones meeting with them. It was more of an open house than a real meeting. We rolled with it and did eventually get some one-on-one time with a staffer. She kept harping on the fact that all Saturdays were booked until 2013. Good to know, of course, but we told her a Sunday would be fine with us after she said it the first time. Again and again, she told us how busy they were and how hard it was to get a reservation. I almost thought she was trying to get rid of us. But we stuck it out and booked our date. After all, it is an incredibly beautiful place, and the price is decent.

As we planned for our event, we had another staff contact. She was pretty crotchety. I think she prefers very traditional weddings and just didn't quite grasp our concept. We also veered off course and picked a caterer that isn't on their preferred list. We agreed to the extra $500 fee (even with that fee, the caterer we chose was cheaper than any of those on Danada's approved list). But this staffer kept harping on the fee to the point that I thought she was going to tell us we weren't allowed to use another caterer after all. She was also very ineffective at email communication, which I consider crucial when contracts and money and important life events are being discussed.

After all was said and done, our wedding turned out to be perfect. I just wish we could have been more confident of that BEFORE the day-of. Knowing what I know now, I would book again.

We just had our wedding here, and absolutely loved the venue. It is one of a kind, and we received so many compliments on it. One guest even said it was like the house in the movie Father of the Bride! It was simple, yet very elegant, and beautiful. Everyone there is so great and helpful. Jill was so easy to work with to pick a date and set everything up. I would highly recommend this venue!

The Danada House is an absolutely stunning venue for your wedding! We loved it from the first time we visited. All of our guests were blown away at how beautiful the atrium was! We loved that we were able to have the ceremony and the reception all at the same location. The grounds are so beautiful even in November that we did all of our photos there. Jill was so great to work with.

After an unfortunate turn of events with our original venue, we were re-planning with 2 months to go until our date. With a 2 month time period, availability for a Saturday was impossible, so we had to get comfortable with a Sunday wedding. Even though we thought it unlikely for Danada House to have any openings left in 2011, I called Danada House and spoke with Jill - explained our turn of events, and she positively suggested 9/11. That date bothered us at first, but we decided that 9/11 will now have positive connection for us and we went with it! Jill, Kathy and Laurie were all so responsive, not just to emails, but they actually answered the phone! Danada House knows how to do what they do best, aesthetics, layout, idea generation, while allowing the other wedding vendors to do what they do best (Yes, you do actually get to use your own vendors! More about that in my other reviews). The house, the grounds, the stables, horses, atmosphere were absolutely perfect. The incompetence and disregard at our previous venue was further evidenced by the professionalism, excitement and constant concern shown by those at Danada House. Everything happens for a reason......we are so thankful that a horrible wedding experience was wiped out by our perfect day at Danada House. Beautiful grounds, beautiful house, wonderful staff and very reasonable price. They have my full recommendation!!

To me, Danada House was the ideal wedding venue. It's a wonderful, romantic setting. I particularly liked having cocktail hour in the house and gardens, then moving into the atrium for dinner.

The venue rental fee was a bit high, but I feel it was definitely worth it!

I haven't experienced a wedding or their service here firsthand, my review is based solely on visiting the place for a potential wedding venue.

We had an appointment to tour Danada House and learn about weddings there. This was the sixth venue that we looked at, so we were expecting a personal tour with the venue manager and a sit-down time to ask questions. That did not happen.

We show up at 1:00 p.m., right on time. The manager told us that she was very busy and the place was packed, so we were welcome to walk through the venue ourselves, before she spoke to us. So we awkwardly walk through the house and reception space, not really sure what's what. It's a gorgeous place, but the house itself feels like a museum. As a wedding guest, I would be afraid that I would break something or spill wine on something.

After our self-guided quasi tour, the manager stands in the hallway with us, asks if we have any questions. She does not take us in her office or explain the policies. One of the first things she said was "almost all of our Saturdays in 2011 are booked, just so you know." Our visit was early March 2010. Way to show us that you're interested in our business! Not to mention that we did not want a Saturday wedding anyways.

While we "talked" to her, many other people touring the place asked her questions. It was more of an open house than an appointment to see a wedding venue.

In addition to the disinterested and unfriendly welcome, the wedding day policies there are inflexible, and the place is quite expensive. Most of all, we want to do business with people that want to do business with us, NOT those that feel they're doing us a favor by doing business with us. I received a call a few days later to follow up with us, and I described exactly how our "tour" went, and that we were NOT interested in booking our wedding with Danada House.

Bottom Line: Danada House is a beautiful site. If finances and flexibility are not concerns, this is a wonderful choice. For the masses, I do not recommend Danada House.

The Danada House is absolutely beautiful and I am so glad that I got married there. I feel like the cost was a bit high for what was being provided. You are not paying for any type of service. You are just paying for the space and chairs. I think that if there isn't going to be any kind of assistance with decorations or set-up, the cost should be lower. Despite the extra work I had to put in to make sure everything was set up perfectly, I am extremely happy on how it turned out. My pictures of the ceremony are beautiful.

Having my wedding at the Danada House was my dream! The grounds and house are beautiful! I was able to take pictures, get married, and have my reception all steps from each other.

Everyone at the Danada House was very friendly and accommodating. My aunt did all the flowers and decorating and Jill and Kathy were very helpful--even helping us pack up at the end of the night.

The price was surprisingly not too bad either. They give you a list of preferred caterers and we went with Angeli's. Their food and service were amazing and so were their prices. I've had friends pay way more for their wedding than us, and their weddings were held in a traditional hotel banquet hall with no windows or character. You definitely can't find many other places that are as beautiful as Danada.

We chose the Danada House because we wanted something different than a typical banquet hall/country club/hotel wedding. The venue is amazing. The gardens are so beautiful that your flowers can be minimal. They remodeled the grounds last summer and added an awesome deck between the house and the atrium where we had cocktail hour. Jill was really nice to work with and went out of her way to accomodate us. They have very strict rules about certain things because it is a dupage county property- but nothing that unreasonable. Their list of preferred vendors is very good. We used a caterer and chair rental place from the list and were very happy with both. We rented the place for the whole day and took pictures getting ready upstairs and on the grounds - in the gardens, paddock and barn area. They look like they're from a magazine. People are still talking about our wedding - and more than one has said it was the most beautiful wedding that they've been to!

Danada House was the perfect ceremony and reception site. Everyone I dealt with there was professional and responsive to my inquiries. In fact, Kathy (the onsite manager for my wedding day) was even kind enough to fluff out the train of my dress before I walked down the aisle! The fact that the entire house and grounds are all yours is what makes Danada the perfect choice. It was my wedding day, and I did not have to share it with anyone, as you would in a big reception hall. We had numerous places for pictures and were even given several choices for the ceremony location. People could not help but gush over the place as it was perfectly beautiful and relaxed. I would absolutely recommend Danada without hesitation. While the price wasn't cheap, it was worth every penny for the gorgeous photos and memories.

Having my wedding at Danada House was the perfect choice for my husband and I. All of the ladies at Danada were professional and responsive, and they all worked very hard to make our wedding day perfect. The gardens were all redone over this past winter and though it was beautiful when we booked it, it is even more beautiful now! We had so many compliments on the gardens and the Atrium and how pretty it all was! The only negative thing I can think of is that, due to other events, Danada schedules their wedding rehearsals for a week night the week before the wedding, which made it hard for some of our bridal party to attend. But otherwise, I loved having the entire house and grounds to ourselves for the whole day. It was so relaxing to have everything at the same place-we didn't have to worry about traffic or making different appointments or anything like that. I think our guests also enjoyed not having to drive to two different locations. I would recommend Danada House for any event, but particularly weddings. It was absolutely perfect!

We fell in love with Danada House for our ceremony and reception! It was exactly what we had envisioned for our wedding day. The outdoor ceremony site is gorgeous with a brick aisle framed by natural flowers and trees. The atrium was absolutely gorgeous for our reception. With four walls of windows and hanging lights-it was spectacular. Jill was a pleasure to work with and all of our questions were answered promptly.

We fell in love with Danada House for our ceremony and reception! It was exactly what we had envisioned for our wedding day. The outdoor ceremony site is gorgeous with a brick aisle framed by natural flowers and trees. The atrium was absolutely gorgeous for our reception. With four walls of windows and hanging lights-it was spectacular. Jill was a pleasure to work with and all of our questions were answered promptly. I would highly recommend this venue...just book it early, dates fill up quickly!! Read less

Having your wedding here- nobody else can compare with the beauty you get for how reasonable the cost is. I am so glad I chose this venue. The staff is very accommodating and helpful. They make sure you have as little to worry about as possible. The gardens themselves are breath-taking and perfect for pictures. You will definitely feel taken care of if you choose this venue- as you should be.

Danada House was absolutely wonderful! I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue to have my wedding. The gardens are beautiful for an outdoor ceremony and the reception room was so elegant. Everything was absolutely perfect. The only I was not so pleased with was that as a whole, Danada is not very flexible to work with, but this really did not effect the wedding in any way- it turned out absolutely beautifully!

The first time I stepped into Danada House I knew that is where I wanted our wedding reception held at. The windows that surround the atrium bring out the natural feel of the woods and beautiful grounds. The lighting in the atrium makes it very romantic but modern at night. The facility is very clean and kept up. I have no regrets about Danada House - I can't wait to have our 50th Anniversary Party held there!

We used the Danada House for both our ceremony and reception and it was fantastic! We booked the house for the whole day, from 9 am to midnight. So I was able to spend the whole day there getting ready in the bridal suite!!! GORGEOUS! The staff is a little bit hard to get in touch with once in a while, but they were extremely helpful on our big day. We did have rain showers on our wedding day, but were still able to get outside and take pictures on their gorgeous grounds! And, due to the rain, we did have to move our ceremony indoors. The staff was able to handle the change without a problem. They worked extremely well with our caterer. Everything was perfect!

My husband and I got married about a week and a half ago, and we had our reception at the Danada House. What an absolutely perfectly gorgeous place to have a reception. We had our coctail hour in the actual house which is old victorian style, with much character and warmth. And then the reception in the glass atrium off the back of the house. It is like a dream. You bring your own caterer, see review of my chef catering, and they set everything up the way you want it. We did all of our post wedding pictures on the beautiful preserved grounds where the house is located. It was May so everything was green, but not too many flowers yet. But the grounds are perfectly maintained, and our pictures turned out beautifully. I can honestly say my wedding was perfect. Everyone contributed to this, but the reception choice of the Danada House was the beginning of perfection. I strongly reccomend it to anyone!!

This is a beautiful place to have a reception. It is very unique since it has a house attached to an atrium (where I had my reception). The lighting is very '20s style, and together with the big windows, give it a fairytale effect - especially at night (when I had my reception). The only complaint is that the lady in charge of the place does not answer emails.

Danada House is absolutely beautiful for that "Outdoor Feel" with their amazing atrium. Along with their horse grounds on Danada Forest Preserves it was an unbelievable setting that I highly suggest anyone looking for a reception ground to check out in the Western Illinois area. Danada was also affordable to rent.

We had to pick from a list of their approved vendors but the list was actually helpful in narrowing down the options and the caterer we chose was excellent. The place was beautiful and just the right size. We had our ceremony outdoros and they had a rain contingency that prevented us from having to worry about the weather. The people were helpful and flexible and let us come look at the site as many times as needed with as many people as needed. One thing we could not do was have our rehersal there due to another event but the setup was simple enough to rehearse elsewhere. They also allowed us to bring supplies a day or two ahead of time and store them in a closet to cut down on all the stuff we had to bring the day of. All in all I had a very good experience.

The Danada House is truly a beautiful and unique place to hold a wedding reception. It was so warm and inviting and set the perfect stage for our reception. We loved it and can't imagine having our reception anywhere else! They allowed us to bring our DIY items in advance to store and we especially appreciated that. Thank you!

We recently had both our ceremony and reception at Danada House and couldn't have been happier with how things went. We had a beautiful ceremony in one of the gardens and used the atrium and house for the reception. Jill and the other ladies are an absolute pleasure to work with (though sometimes a little difficult to get ahold of, but they always get back to you!). They are professionals who have clearly done this many times. It is a little on the pricey side, but I can't imagine a better place to get married. We got countless compliments on how beautiful and unique the venue was. Would recommend to anyone!

I had a destination wedding and was looking for a venue to host a reception for our family and friends upon our return. Once I saw the Danada House I knew this was the place! It is such a unique and beautiful venue. We had the cocktail hour in the house and then moved into the georgeous atrium for the brunch reception. I had a fall themed reception and the beautful atrium with the 3 walls of windows really allowed the fall colors to shine! Jill and Lori were very helpful in planning and answering any questions that came up. Highly recommend!!

This is a beautiful setting that was perfect for both our ceremony and reception. Danada was extremely flexible to allow us to use a caterer that wasn't on their list and to allow us to expand the reception to the adjoining picnic grounds, where we set up activities for the kids like a bounce house and volleyball net. They even allowed us to move and use the picnic tables from the stable area. I loved the option that they offered to give our guests horse-drawn carriage rides through the woods. One of my fondest memories from my wedding was this relaxing ride with friends and family after the ceremony. The grounds and house were impeccably clean and they allowed us to really utilize the house for dressing, photographs and more. It's a first class operation that is well worth the money.
