Alda's Magnolia Hill

A historic landmark now becomes a romantic venue for weddings, and a memorable setting for receptions. A 31 acre estate in the heart of Little Rock features a private lake, wooded trails, pool, brides room, groom quarters and complete outdoor kitchen.

Right in the heart of Little Rock, a countryside retreat is ready to take your breath away. The Dr. Morgan Smith Estate, known as Magnolia Hill sits on 31 acres of secluded countryside that includes a three acre lake, rolling lawns, hundred year old oak trees, magnolia trees, fountains, ducks, geese and the most modern conveniences. The Dr. Morgan Smith estate was built in 1918, and sits as a National Landmark of Historic Places. Two age-old Magnolia trees sit atop the hill that he planted. The estate has grown to be called Magnolia Hill.
Today, the warmth of this home is a most convenient place for your wedding and /or reception. A hand-laid stone ceremony area at the water's edge is topped with a stone altar for the waterside ceremony. A White Dove Release is included to end the ceremony. If desired,Magnolia Hill offers their horse and carriage on the grounds and around the lake as part of the ceremony. The reception area atop the hill features a covered breezeway for dancing the night away amid the twinkle lights in the trees. All the seating is furnished. The couple leaves the reception in our 1938 antique Pacard car amid fireworks down the driveway.

We absolutely loved this property. Both Alda and Buddy are unbelievably fantastic people. Our only sticking point was having to work with Catering Creations. We had an unbelievably awful experience with them before the food had a chance to ever hit the table. They were overpriced, impossible to get ahold of and completely inflexible for food or budget options. We had to break our contract with Magnolia Hill simply based on Catering Creations exclusivity there. It absolutely broke our heart. IF you are remotely interested in Magnolia Hill, meeting with Catering Creations beforehand is an absolute must...do NOT take anyone's word for it including Buddy and Alda at Magnolia Hill. It was an expensive lesson for us to learn but hopefully we can help someone else dodge the same pitfall.

Choosing Magnolia Hill for our wedding venue was the best choice we made regarding our wedding. Alda and Buddy went above and beyond what we asked to make our day perfect. The day of the wedding, I sat on my couch and relaxed with my bridesmaids with no anxiety about the evening. I could relax knowing that my family, friends, and I could show up and everything would be perfect. Every time I emailed or called Alda, I was met with a prompt "I'll take care of it, no worries." Alda and Buddy made our wedding a dream come true and our guests went on and on all night about how our wedding was the most beautiful and romantic wedding they have ever been to. Most importantly, my husband and I are still (over a week later) overwhelmed by how beautiful and memorable Alda and Buddy made our special day!

I have never been so satisfied by a vendor than I am with Alda's! Alda was there every step of the way, assuring us that we were going to have the wedding we dreamed of. She told me from the beginning that as mother-of-the-bride I was to enjoy this day; that she would take care of everything. And, she meant it ...she took care of everything !!! The venue was absolutely beautiful, like a fairy-tale. Alda's flowers, decorations, and props were exactly what my daughter had described as wanting. Guests were raving about how beautiful everything was. Even my son-in-law told me during the reception that the wedding couldn't have been more perfect !

I am so happy that we had our wedding at Alda's Magnolia Hill. From the very first consultation to the wedding, Alda and Bubby took great care of us. The only thing I wish I could change is being able to use my own caterer. I can honestly say I was never stressed or worried about anything with the wedding and reception venue. I loved the red truck and the barn was beautiful. It was so nice to have Alda take care of pretty much everything and not have to worry about using 10 different vendors. Buddy and Alda really will take care of you from the beginning to end. I could not have asked for more! They are such great people and really love what they do. I look forward to keeping in touch with this sweet couple!

We got married July 13, 2013 and it was absolutely the most magical day! Alda and her husband Buddy are the most amazing people I've ever met.. They treat everyone like family and they responded to my questions almost immediately. They took care of everything for me so I wasnt stressed.. They went absolutely above and beyond from the day we booked the venue to the wedding day. We had quite a few family members there and she made sure everyone was comfortable. Buddy was always making sure everything was perfect. They made sure i had everything I wanted. Alda even made sure I got my hydrangea which is hard to get in Arkansas in July! This couple knows exactly what they are doing and it is totally worth every penny. This couple will always have a special place in our hearts.

Alda and Buddy Ellis are the perfect hosts of this historic venue. The wedding for my daughter would have been absolutely perfect had it not rained 3 inches that day, so we were unable to have the dove release and carriage ride. Alda and Buddy do have a "Plan B" and were able to move the ceremony and reception indoors to their beautifully decorated barn/reception hall, and shuttled guests from a paved parking lot across the street to the bar. Guest comfort and our happiness were always their focus, and we appreciated their attention to details and eagerness to please! I highly recommend them for allowing the families to truly enjoy the wedding and reception due to their impeccable planning!

Ms. Alda and her husband Buddy, became more like family as opposed to a vendor. Alda's Magnolia Hill was on my list of dream venues that I knew I wanted to get married there, prior to even being engaged. Thankfully my now husband asked me to marry him on November 28th, 2012, and Ms. Alda was able to create the most beautiful wedding and reception that was way beyond my wildest dreams. If an intimate and romantic venue is something that is near and dear to your heart, contact her. She will care for you and make the experience stress-free, which was marvelous.

I am so thrilled with my wedding at Magnolia Hill that I do not know where to begin.
The hospitality and love shown by Alda and Buddy to my family and I throughout the whole wedding process was truly a blessing. Our wedding planning experience was a breeze and very low stress which was much appreciated!
The wedding was absolutely better than I could have EVER imagined and I am continually hearing glowing remarks and compliments about my big day. I heard from several guests that it was the best wedding they had ever attended. I know that none of it could have been accomplished without Alda and Buddy. They are so sweet and caring and went beyond to please and take care of us in every way. I actually got to enjoy my wedding and not worry about a thing because it was all perfectly taken care of just as we discussed in our planning meetings. Please know that this short note cannot do justice to how extremely grateful and happy we are for being able to share our special day at Magnolia Hill. We couldn’t have had a more perfect day! Everything was perfect. They made sure people were in the right places at the right times. The food was presented beautifully by their exclusive caterer. We will rave about our experience forever. We score them a 10 on their scale of 1-5. We cannot recommend it enough!!!We will recommend Magnolia Hill to anyone that we know and tell them all about our wonderful experience! Thanks so much for the perfect dream wedding!

I do not even know where to begin. I had my wedding at Magnolia Hill and it was better than I could have ever even imagined. I was currently in nursing school at the time so I needed somewhere that took care of everything for me and Magnolia Hill went over and beyond helping me achieve my dream wedding.
Alda and her husband Buddy were phenomenal from planning months in advance till the day of. The take pride in their business and want every bride to be completely happy and stress free on their wedding day.
Alda allows you to do as much or as little as you would like for your wedding and I really appreciated that flexibility.
I could not ask for a more relaxed wedding day (and days leading up to it). Alda took care of every detail that I needed and I am hearing from friends and relatives that this was the most relaxed and fun wedding that they had been a part of preparing for.
I am constantly hearing from all of my guests that the wedding was a blast and absolutely beautiful!! I would definitely recommend Magnolia Hill if you want a dream outdoor wedding.

First of all, I am not the bride, but the groom's mother. I'm also not from Alaska, but from Sherwood Arkansas. Our wedding was Sunday, April 28, 2013. I have known Ms. Alda for many years. From the very start of the wedding planning, there was no doubt that Ms. Alda had everything covered. If you have not considered Magnolia Hill as your venue, one visit with Ms. Alda and Buddy will literally suck you in! She is the very essence of Southern charm and it shows in every aspect of this venue. The truck ride for the guys, the horse drawn carriage ride for the bride and her father, a lakeside altar and ceremony, dove release, and she handled our flowers for us. What an experience it was. I anticipated that I would be very stressed the entire day of the wedding; I was a little stressed, until I arrived and Alda took charge. I was able to relax, enjoy the experience, and was totally at ease. She runs a very tight ship and every detail is perfect. She makes every bride and groom and their families feel as if they are the most important and most special people on earth. Alda and Buddy have a gem at Magnolia Hill and all of our guests are still talking about it.

Choosing to have my wedding at Alda's Magnolia Hill was by far THE BEST decision I could have possibly made while planning. I never could have even dreamed of a wedding like the one I got... it was absolutely perfect. I first sent my mom Alda's website as a joke... thinking it was too perfect to be true! She called them up and set up a date to go see it, and it was even better than it looks online! Alda and Buddy are both just incredible. They are such sweet people, and I wouldn't trust anyone else with all the details of my wedding. Alda took such a huge weight off of me while planning... she made herself available to do anything and everything for me from all the flowers to the setup/decoration. She told me I could send her pictures from pinterest of arrangements/decorations/anything I liked and she would design all my stuff based on what I sent and described. She did that and made it so much more beautiful than I EVER could have done without her help! This woman is a super hero! On the big day, she made sure everything went smoothly and I did not have to worry about a thing. I can honestly say I have no regrets about my wedding day, and that's huge. Everything was 100% perfect thanks to these two wonderful people! Please don't pass up at least meeting with Alda and Buddy if you're considering having an Arkansas wedding... you'll be glad you did. : )

If you want a fairytale wedding at a beautiful venue with a wonderful couple to attend to all the details, then book your wedding at Alda's Magnolia Hill before your date fills up! Alda and Buddy are fantastic to work with, and as a mother of the bride, that was absolutely priceless. We chose the option of having Alda do the bride and bridesmaids flowers as well as all the boutonnieres, and it was WELL worth the money...much nicer and less expensive than the other options I looked at. Alda and Buddy are personally invested in making your wedding just the way you want it, and they make that happen. Fun, fun, fun wedding!

My daughter was married there and as she promised, Miss Alda made sure everything was down to perfection; from the venue, to grounds, decorations, ceremony, caterer, and reception. We highly recommend this couple and their location for ANY event. If you are looking for Southern elegance and hospitality, you won't be disappointed. Jessica and I thank you and will be forever grateful for a wedding memory that will last forever.

If you're looking to get married in Little Rock, please consider Alda's Magnolia Hill! Not only is the location itself beautiful, but Alda, her husband Buddy, and all of their staff are absolutely wonderful! From the gorgeous job Alda did on the flowers, to the impeccably decorated reception area, Alda gave me a wedding that I could only have dreamed about. The vendors that she exclusively works with (Central Arkansas Entertainment and Catering Creations) also provide excellent service. The food was amazing and the DJ kept everyone dancing until it was time for my husband and I to leave via the 'elegant exit' that they provide for you. Even with a tight budget, Alda made everything work; I literally cried when I got to the venue on my wedding day and saw how beautiful everything was. Again, I never dreamed that I would have a fairy tale wedding but Alda's Magnolia Hill gave me one!
Aside from the venue being wonderful, Alda and Buddy truly are lovely people. I feel like they have become family after spending a year planning with them. Please, consider giving them your business. You will not regret it!

I'm an out-of-town MOB and she made me completely comfortable that everything would run smoothly (and it did.) Buddy played several roles (drove the carriage, officiate, shuttle driver) and did it seamlessly. What a team they are! I even felt confident that if the weather had gone bad, that their backup plan (the barn) would be just as magnificent. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue!!

We had Alda take care of all of our flowers and decorations, and they could not have been more perfect. She was able to create exactly what I wanted for everything. Everything was simply stunning. From the day we booked, we had the easiest time planning our wedding with Alda's help. I can't say enough good things about this venue, or the people that run it. If your in doubt, just schedule a visit. You will fall in love instantly with Alda and Buddy, as well as the grounds.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Mrs. Alda, Mr. Buddy and Magnolia Hill. From our first meeting, they were both so helpful and accommodating. She had me at the peach tea! My daughter wanted a vintage, romantic setting and Magnolia Hill was the perfect place! Alda is an amazing wedding planner, offering guidance from the very beginning down to the big day. She really makes everything so easy and fun. She knows "southern perfection!" She decorated with milk glass and beautiful silver pieces. The horse drown carriage and the 1938 Packard as well as the fireworks over the lake and the "elegant exit" made for the fairy tale wedding we dreamed of giving our daughter. She also did all of the flowers for the wedding and it by far exceeded my expectations! Absolutely beautiful! Perfect in every way! Mrs. Alda and Mr. Buddy will forever have a special place in my heart.

Alda's Magnolia Hill was chosen by my daughter because it was located as an equal driving distance for the bride and groom. God was with us in that decision. We had no idea the extra work required in hosting a destination wedding, even though it was only 2 hours away. Alda and Buddy are true professional in every way! They were always there for suggestions, recommendations and guided us every step of the way. They truly were the ribbon that tied the ceremony to pure perfection! Alda made sure all details were handled to perfection and I trusted her completely to guide us through to the fireworks finale which she did amazingly. Buddy and Alda Ellis will always hold a special place in my heart for making my only daughter's wedding the fairy tale wedding that she had always dreamed of. I consider them more as a member of my family than just an acquaintance because that is the way you are treated when you are their client. I not only recommend them but would encourage you to call and visit them if you are looking for a wedding venue. They are incredibally talented in what they do and I am blessed to gotten to know them.

My husband and I just got married last weekend. I can't say enough how amazing this venue was. Alda and her husband Buddy were fantastic. Her decorating was amazing and she did my flowers. Everything was perfectly suited to our taste (rustic vintage) and we loved the beauty of her farm. My family still has not stopped talking about how amazing the wedding was. It was absolutely magical! Alda was a fantastic wedding planner. I am currently living in North Carolina and we communicated via email throughout the whole process. I had my mother and sister go meet with her several times throughout the process to cover specifics of the ceremony and that helped so much. Buddy was our Officiant and he gave us a very special ceremony. I was thrilled to have him marry us. I truly felt like Alda and Buddy were like family after the end of all this! I would suggest Magnolia Hill to anyone and everyone that wants a unique outdoor venue. Love it love it love it!!

Magnolia Hill is the perfect setting for a romantic wedding and Alda and Buddy are the icing on the cake!!! My daughter Tara and my new son-in-law Matt were married at Magnolia Hill on April 28th and it was BEAUTIFUL! Alda and Buddy handled everything and as Mother of the Bride that was 'priceless'. I relaxed and enjoyed the evening knowing that true professionals were taking care that the night was perfect! The ceremony from beginning to end was a masterpiece!

We were so pleased with our daughter's wedding held at Alda's Magnolia Hill. Alda and Buddy were so attentive and every detail was taken care of. Alda stayed on schedule and it was absolutely beautiful! The service was great. She truly cares about you and you feel like part of their family. The caterers were great as well. I cannot say enough nice things about our experience. I had so many compliments from friends and family about this being the best wedding they had ever attended!

Since I was a little girl I have dreamed of having a southern style princess wedding. This past Saturday (April 14th), those dreams came true. Alda definitely takes care of the bride on her big day. She has things planned down to the minute and knows the perfect solutions to any problems that may occur. The venue was absolutely perfect for my dream of a southern style wedding. From the view of the pond to the horse drawn carriage, my big day was absolutely perfect! I didn't have to worry about a thing. I could actually relax and enjoy every part of my day. I owe everything to Mrs. Alda and Mr. Buddy. They want the absolute best for each bride that has a wedding there. They are such wonderful people!!!

This was a great day. Alda and Buddy were very helpful. The setting was spectacular. I am the mother of the bride and did not live in Little Rock I was very blessed to have Alda taking care of things. I felt she would not let us forget anything or make a mistake and I was right. In reading post on our facebook page following the ceremony they all read like, "I just left the most amazing wedding..." and "I just went to the best wedding I have every attended" and this is just two of many. Wedding day is still hectic but it was only hair, make-up, and general getting dressed. We were not setting up tables, calling rental places, and so on. We were enjoying the day. I can't thank Alda and Buddy enough for the wonderful experience. My daughter and I agreed we would not have changed anything. We had the canoe, the carriage and the fireworks.

We had our wedding and reception at Magnolia Hill. It is such a beautiful place. We wanted an outside, fall wedding and it was perfect. Mrs. Alda and Mr. Buddy worked very hard to make our day perfect. They are very professional and know what it takes to make customers happy. Mrs. Alda will do everything from wedding planning to flowers to cakes, anything you need. She makes sure everything runs smoothly so that your family can relax and enjoy the day. She provided the music (classical) for our ceremony. I used all of her suggestions, they were wonderful. She also made all of my wedding flowers including my bouquet, my bridesmaid's bouquets, groomsmens flowers, and all of the large centerpieces and alter flowers all the way down to the rose petals down the isle. She did a wonderful job. I had no idea what i wanted... I carried her pictures of ideas and she made everything elegant and beautiful. I couldn't have asked for a better florist, and it was very reasonably priced. She knew i wanted a fall wedding and she used her own fall decor at the reception and we did not have to bring any decorations. She fixed all the reception tables and cake tables and she has such beautiful ideas. I cannot say enough great things about Magnolia Hill. Also, our minister fell thru at the last minute, so Mr. Buddy performed our ceremony. He did it exactly the way I wanted it and he did a beautiful job. They provide so many extra services like the carriage ride and dove release that are just beautiful. Being a Magnolia Hill bride, I also had my bridal portraits made there and they were great. I've had many people email or message me that were at my wedding that said it looked like something out of a magazine or fairy tale. It truly is a place to have a fairy tale wedding! I would not change a thing about any of the services provided by Mr. Buddy and Mrs. Alda at Magnolia Hill.

Alda and Buddy were wonderful to work with. They truly want your day to be the best and to make you happy with your wedding. My main advice would be to ask lots of questions. We probably didn't ask enough early on. The venue offers lots of options as far as decorating and Alda was more than willing to help with everything. They coordinated with the rest of our vendors making my job much easier and the whole wedding proceeded smoother. This couple loves what they do and it shows.

My daughter's wedding was magical!! Alda and Buddy are very organized before the event and the during the rehearsal and wedding they are incredible!! They really know how to take care of their people!

Alda is in charge and that is what I wanted. It removes all kinds of stress from the Mother of the Bride! She is there if you have a question, but in the background if you don't.

Magnolia Hill is gorgeous! From the canoe arrival with the groom to Buddy and Delilah with the Bride and her Dad, everything is orchestrated to the last detail!

Alda was patient and understanding with my daughter. Answering question after question leading up to the event.

If you want a magical event, that is not like everyone else, this is the place to be!!

I would highly recommended Alda's Magnolia Hill to an bride for many reasons. Alda is the most caring, thoughtworthy, trusting, hard working, nicest lady I have ever met. Alda's Magnolia Hill has something to offer for everyone. During our reception, a huge storm came through and knocked out the electricity. Alda willingly opened the doors to her own home for my guest. Alda truely cares about the bride and will do anything to keep them satisfied. We chose to do the fireworks display and they did them in the rain just so we could see them. Buddy was our preacher and he really knows how to preach a good wedding. He kept the mood light and kept us all from crying on more than one occasion. I was looking for a stress free easy to plan wedding and found all of that and more at Alda's Magnolia Hill.

And a Special thanks to Mrs Delilah and Mr Buddy, for helping with the Ceremony. At one point I was about to lose it and start crying, but the joke he said , once he saw the Ring,... That totally saved Me!! :) (Giggle) and It lightened the mood for everyone! A lot of the Guests commented on how Refreshing the Ceremony was. It wasn't a long drawn out, boring type,... it was Perfect, and Joyful!

I told my wife not to go into our wedding day wanting it to be perfect, so that if things go awry we can still have a good time. Anyway we didn't have to worry because she said it was the most perfect day of her life, and Alda, and Buddy definitely made that happen. They were easy to work with, flexible to make your day the way you want it, and very experienced. We kept as much of the details secret about the wedding as we could to make it a surprise, and both families thought that the groom/best man arriving by canoe, and the bride/father of the bride arriving by stagecoach were very unique, special, and classy. The location is absolutely beautiful and the weather was great for us. I would without a doubt highly recommend them to anyone.

This venue was absolutely perfect for our wedding. If you want something in a natural, country setting, this is the perfect spot. It was really affordable the owners did everything to make our day perfect they were so sweet and very easy to talk to. If we had an issue we just let them know and they took care of everything for us. Very little decorations were needed as the property was perfectly beautiful already. I'm so glad we had our wedding there. We had a 80% chance of rain on our day (and it's completely an outdoor venue) so you would have to rent tents or have it inside (which is just as lovely) but luckily it stopped raining and we could have ours outdoors as planned.

I can easily say that choosing to have my wedding at Alda's Magnolia Hill was the best decision I made when wedding planning. Looking back I cannot imagine getting married anywhere else. Alda and Buddy are the sweetest, most helpful people who truly love what they do and really care for each bride's needs individually. The only thing that bothered me initially was that Alda has a set list of Vendors that she uses there. At first I was a little put off by that, but I quickly realized that having vendors at the wedding that had worked there before made things run so much smoother. I am still getting comments daily on how beautiful and unique my wedding was. If you have always dreamed of a fairy tale wedding (horse drawn carriage and all!) then you will love Alda's Magnolia Hill.

If you have always dreamed of a fairy tale wedding (horse drawn carriage and all!) then you will love Alda's Magnolia Hill. Read less

I am the brides Mom and I was not happy ......there were dying flowers left over from the nights before wedding on the patio....I was asked several times if they were our flowers! There were 3 tables sitting around on the patio that should have been used for the reception at the barn underneath the tent we rented for over flow. The tent was to be beside the barn not right in front of it. There was to be a table "as you come up the Hill" that was to have peach tea and water for the guests. Not!!! My husband had to run to the car several times for bottled water that we had brought in an ice chest for the bridal pictures before the wedding to give to elderly guests. (It was very hot at the wedding) My sister and youngest daughter went in the house to get water because of the heat and Alda told them they were not to be in the house and didn't even get the water. The tea that was set up at the reception was in a bad location and had a ladle. Some guests didn't find the tea until halfway through the reception! My daughter, the bride, was unhappy several times during the wedding as told to me by a bridesmaid later. I was very happy at my wedding 29 years ago and wanted the same thing for my daughter on her day. I am so disappointed she didn't get the wedding of her dreams!

Alda's Magnolia Hill responded with the following comments:

We are deeply sorry that you had to hunt for water...it was in three outside locations for all to see. The tent was where the bride wanted it, and we always respect our brides wishes as top priority. Yes, the tea was served in an clear antique jar with a ladle...just as the bride wanted. Since the bride did all the planning, we honored her wishes.

The site was absolutely beautiful and the wedding was a success and incredible but the frustration and arguments we had to endure in order to have our wedding at this beautiful location lowered the rating in our opinion. Alda was pushy, overbearing and inflexible. She had a very hard time letting me and the groom plan the wedding we were dreaming of when our desires didn't match what she wanted. We ended up in many arguments with Alda about the way things would be done at OUR wedding which I thought was ridiculous since our wedding should be what we want... To top it off one the wedding day while I was busy getting ready she made changes to they way it would go behind my back. Changes that I strongly disagreed with. While I'm very glad we got to have our amazing wedding at such an incredibly beautiful place if I had known what we would have to go through with Alda I would have had to carefully consider a different location.
