The Cornerstone Event & Retreat Venue is a wedding venue situated on an exquisite estate in Edmonton, Alberta. The mansion was originally built as a family home for the current owners' parents. Nestled in a rural setting, the estate is only five minutes from the nearest hotel, making it easily accessible for out-of-town guests. With a welcoming ambience, the estate is brimming with cherished memories and is an ideal location for hosting milestone moments. The team is enthusiastic about welcoming couples here and enjoys providing quality and trusted customer service.

With over 5,000 square feet of space, it is suitable for weekend celebrations and is complete with a walk-out basement.

What a beautiful venue, would highly recommend however I hope they would have a much "professional" staff that is much easier to deal it nonetheless it was a great experience! Our wedding was beautiful and our guests had fun at the location :)

Gorgeous venue, thoughtful owner, and attentive staff!

We are so glad that we booked The Cornerstone as our wedding venue last week. Not only is the property stunning, but there are so many options for ways you can utilize the space. We chose to use the house for getting ready and our paper signing, the gazebo for our ceremony, a tent on the grass for our reception, and dessert / dancing in the barn. The barn has been recently renovated to give it an upscale yet romantic vibe. Christina, the owner, is lovely to work with. She has amazing ideas and her staff are available to ensure things go smoothly. Thank you for everything and we know our day wouldn't have been as perfect as it was if it weren't for The Cornerstone!

Wedding reception

Due to Covid we switched our reception location three months prior to our wedding date to accommodate an outdoor reception. We booked with the Cornerstone using their weekend package. The space is beautiful for for a moderately size tented reception. However, there were some flaws in communication that did throw us curveballs last minute and impact our special day.
For us there were a few discrepancies between what we were told in person while looking at the venue vs what was said later on. The contract we were given did not reflect the information we were told by the owners and in fact did not even state anything about the time we needed to be off the property the night of our wedding. When we first did a walk through of the venue we asked what time we had to be out of the venue and we were told “the music had to be turned down at midnight”. About 2 weeks before our wedding we were then told we had to turn down the music by 11pm and had to be out of the venue by midnight because they had to close the gates at 1am. We were extremely disappointed in hearing this and there was nothing of the sort written in the contract. We were able to negotiate a bit of a later end time (1245, but gates still closed at 1am). None of our guests were ready to leave at 1245 and we even had a few people offer to pay more so that we could stay later but they wouldn’t allow it. We can understand and appreciate every venues rules but had this been communicated properly to us from the beginning, we very well may have decided to book somewhere that allowed us to extend our special evening a bit more. The owner is very kind but again, lack of communication with us lead to the grass being watered right before the rental company came to install our tent and made it very difficult for them to set up.
In the end our wedding was still beautiful but it was very stressful communicating with the owner and we felt there were a lot of unexpected and unnecessary surprises that could have been avoided. With it being a newer wedding venue it may be that they need to get a few things ironed out but it wasn’t an entirely smooth process for us.
