If you're familiar with the show Designing Women, chances are you've seen one of our favorite wedding and reception venues in the area. The office of Georgia's fictional Sugarbaker Designs is actually in Little Rock!

Built as a private residence in 1881 by Angelo and Jennie Marre, The Villa Marre (pronounced like "Marie") is now open to host everything from bridal and engagement photo sessions to receptions and weddings in an environment that's historical, beautiful and romantic. With a classic architectural style including a mansard roof, walnut staircase and beautiful woodwork, the house calls up old Italy right here in central Arkansas.

  • Capacity: 225 seated (outdoor), 100 seated (indoor), 200 for cocktail reception
  • Available for: Bridal & engagement photo sessions, receptions, weddings and more
  • Recently redone back garden
