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.

I cannot express enough what a perfect experience my daughters wedding today was! Ms Alda and Mr Buddy and all involved made her fairy tale dream wedding come true! Her beautifully coordinated event was so well organized that I actually was able to enjoy what could have been a very stressful day. They welcomed our families with open arms. I cannot recommend them enough!

My wedding was absolutely perfect, and I am so glad that I had it at Alda's Magnollia Hill! After the wedding, all of my guests said that it was the most beautiful and romantic wedding that they had ever been to. Alda Ellis works so hard to make sure everything goes right. She even found flowers that were a beautiful match to the ones my florist used for our bouquets. She does all of the decorations and planning of the day itself. It was a fairy tale, perfect wedding and I would recommend Alda's Magnolia Hill to anyone who wants a gorgeous, romantic place to get married. The horse and carriage entrance was so special, and the reception area had so many great details. I knew the place was lovely but it exceeded all of my expectations.

My wedding was an absolute fairy tale. It was better than a wedding you would see in a movie. Mrs. Alda and Mr. Buddy went above and beyond to personalize and make my day unique and special. Mrs. Alda did all of my flowers and they were awesome. She ordered a Lilly to specially match my wedding colors. She added so many special touches that were above and beyond my expectations. She made all of my family and friends feel comfortable. She paid special attention to my elderly relatives by making them an easily accessible table and having a golf cart drive them around the venue. Two months later my friends and family are still commenting about how magical and fun the wedding was. I love Mrs. Alda and Mr. Buddy and enjoyed getting to know them!

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.
