Danada House Reception
“We were impressed with Jill at Danada House from the start. Her willingness to work with our wishes for the wedding, her professionalism, and her knowledge of the banquet experience were unsurpassed and sold us on Danada House for our daughter and her husband’s wedding location. The bridal party enjoyed preparing for the wedding inside the lovely home. Outdoors we were surrounded with spectacular photo options. The beauty of the building and the grounds added much to the splendor of the evening. The wedding and reception took our breath away. The flexibility of Danada House also made it possible to have the feeling of an outdoor wedding inside a well air conditioned atrium on a 96 degree day. Kathy and Lori were of great assistance in making the rehearsal and the wedding day run smoothly.”

“Thanks again for a wonderful wedding for our daughter at your facilities. I cannot stop smiling as it was a gorgeous wedding. Our family is raving and thought it was the best wedding that they have ever been to in our entire family. The outside rainbow that evening really was special as well!!”

“The Danada House is a beautiful venue, and its staff was unbelievably accommodating and enthusiastic when it came to helping us plan our big day. We used this venue for both our ceremony and reception on a snowy Saturday in January, and can’t imagine a more beautiful setting to have exchanged our vows. Thank you, Danada House, for a wonderful day!”
