What’s that you say? You haven’t seen a wedding at Illinois Danada House? Well…today’s your lucky day then! Danada House in Wheaton, Illinois is a sprawling, white brick, 19-room country home in built in 1939 by Commodity trader Daniel F. Rice and his wife Ada. It was also the the home farm of the 1965 Kentucky Derby winner Lucky Debonair, ridden by jockey Bill Shoemaker. These days, The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County owns the property and offers the home and its 780 acres, including out buildings and a 23-stall Kentucky style stable for rent for weddings, events or meetings.
Today’s bride and groom Taylor and Tom happily took advantage of the property’s splendor and combined it with the lovely details of their wonderful day. And I have to say I’m absolutely swooning over the olive green and navy blue color palette. I love color combinations you don’t normally see together and in my opinion, these are so beautiful. From the cute olive green junior bridesmaids dresses to the stylish navy bridesmaids dresses, and of course Taylor’s fantastic Crystal Bride gown and gorgeous statement necklace, all the ladies were looking fabulous. But let’s not forget Tom and his guys as they definitely rocked it in their dark gray suits with lighter shade ties. Photographed by Corlis Gray Photography, who has been seen several times here on Fab You Bliss, this wedding surely was everything they hoped it would be. So get comfortable with your favorite drink, cozy up in front of your monitor and let’s have a look together.
