Venue Day: Danada House
The Danada House is located in Wheaton, and I’m partial to it for several reasons:
- I only have to drive on one road to get me there and back. No turns, no directions needed…amazing!
- It’s nature-y—colorful gardens and giant trees.
- I used to take horseback riding lessons there!
- The ballroom is beautiful with its big windows and hanging lights.
I went for a visit and looked through some photo albums of previous Danada House weddings. I didn’t want to forget all the fabulous images, so I whipped out my camera and snapped shots of my favorites. These were all originally taken by Fred Fox Photography. Please don’t mind the obvious picture-of-a-picture-ness.
I originally did not like this venue, because it seemed a little too country. Modern, chic hotel ballrooms appealed much more. But now, I’m thinking about the ambience and pictures I want on our special day and realizing that maybe I’m more of an outdoor bride! Well, not entirely outdoor. I don’t love the possibility of inclement weather, insects, or mud stains. But I do want to see nature around us, not just wallpaper and dividers. And I’d rather take pictures by trees and flowers than by the grand entrance of a hotel.
My only concern is finding a caterer. This is the only venue I visited that didn’t have in-house catering. Outside catering is a whole new realm of the wedding world that I’ve never explored. What do you think—could it be worth the trouble for my perfect setting?
