About Alda's Magnolia Hill
Alda's Magnolia Hill
A historic landmark now becomes a romantic lakeside venue for weddings, and a memorable setting for outdoor receptions and indoor receptions. We take care of everything...perfect for a destination wedding.
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.
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 Elegant Exit - in 1938 antique Packard car amid fireworks down the driveway.
Please make an appointment for viewing the estate and discussing availability.
