...for fairy tale weddings
here is something magical about taking vows in a natural setting with hundred year old oak trees as your witness. The reception however is under cover as you are surrounded with twinkle lights. The party may spill out onto the lawn, at the dock, by the pool, or around a band and bonfire...it is a comfortable setting for all with a little planning.
For a Disc Jockey we use Central Arkansas Entertainment exclusively.
A Magnolia Hill reception is true Southern style, mixing formal with the informal...in a personalized, welcoming way.
Tables are furnished for the Wedding Cake table, Grooms cake, gift tables, video and food tables.
Reception tables are skirted in ivory tableskirts, to compliment our gold chavari chairs included with the venue. (as shown below)
For some of our sweetest weddings, the reception has been only cake and punch.(Along with our well-known Magnolia Hill Peach Tea).
Formal or informal, we provide a neutral decor pallet that is easy to work with.
For the most romantic evening ever, we add dramatic lighting to your event with the draping of twinkle lights everywhere. For summer weddings, a water cooling Misting System cools the night air.
The basic layout for our reception keeps guest tables to the perimeter and leaves the middle of the floor open which is perfect for dancing.
You can even add an adhesive decal of your monogram to personalize the dance floor. (as above)
We provide a guest book table for both the ceremony and the reception area.
A tree near the reception area serves as our "Memory Tree" embellished with string, clothespins, and your family pictures.
Guests enjoy viewing wedding gowns on display from our brides mothers and grandmothers.
Food and Beverage:
You are welcome to provide your own alcoholic beverages but we provide the required bartender.
Catering is exclusively by Dinner's Ready Arkansas
You are welcome to contract your own cake bakery or we can help with that too.
Our staff at Dinner's Ready will help you plan your reception, seating, linens, beverage, and give you the use of their vast expertise in planning at this facility.
We provide "Venue Flowers" with the rental of the venue. Guest tables, altar, buffet table, etc. in your colors. You are welcome to provide your own decorating but if you need assistance we can provide you complete floral services. If you live out of state, we can take care of all the details in a Destination Wedding. Near or far.... if you are looking for a place that does it all -- we can!
Give us a call to set up an appointment to tour our historic facility.
In the fall, relax around a bonfire with smores for a "grooms cake".
We use Central Arkansas Entertainment exclusively for Disc Jockey and Photo Booth for the best parties ever. They can book a band, guitarist, harpist, or string ensemble.
As an option, we can set up a stage for your band down by the bonfire and right on the water's edge. Perhaps instead of a traditional grooms cake, we provide a table for smores to be enjoyed around the music and bonfire. Young and old alike still love to roast marshmallows.
Easy to hold, Pecan Tassies are great by the bonfire too!
In selecting a caterer for Magnolia Hill, this was the easiest decision of all. We work with the professional and creative talents of Dinner's Ready. The owner has spoiled us with giving our brides masterful, creative and fabulous selections.
As we love great food at a reasonable price, I firmly believe that any event must include a spread of fabulous fare. For that reason, we offer Dinner's Ready as our Exclusive caterer for you to choose your menu with care.
For fall, our hay wagon serves as a dessert buffet with miniature pies and tarts ...and offers guests warm cocoa, coffee, or warm apple cider.
From beginning to the very end...it is a magical day at Magnolia Hill. We have an optional package of Fireworks to light up the night sky at your reception. The couple leaves in our 1938 vintage Packard with a Mr. & Mrs. salute in fireworks. Silver fountains go off as the car pulls down the driveway.
The disc jockey announces Mr. and Mrs. as they make their entrance to the reception.
The stone courtyard overlooks the lake. Over head are stands of Italian lights. White chairs and tables are furnished as part of the venue.

To begin the reception, our Mr. and Mrs. are greeted with our "Signature Salute"as they are announced to enter the party.
We roll out the red carpet for the bride and groom to run to the car and end the reception via our "Elegant Exit.".
