About Cornerstone Theatre & Restaurant

Cornerstone Theatre & Restaurant is a wedding banquet hall located in Canmore, Alberta. Whether you want to celebrate in the open air, in a cozy space, or while enjoying both, this venue can make it happen. With the scenery of the grand Rocky Mountains to enjoy and ample grounds to explore, this venue would be ideal for the adventurous types. Similarly, couples who want a rustic retreat for their wedding are sure to be bowled over by the luxury and refinement of the overall experience.

Facilities and Capacity

For the ceremony, it would be difficult to find too many destinations that boast such breath-taking scenery for the “I do” moment. An outdoor setup at either Canmore Ranch or Rundleview Parkette offers views of the mountains. Here, couples can take in the fresh air as they say their vows and exchange rings. Imagine selecting one of these locations, with tall trees framing the snow-scattered slopes as you officially become newlyweds. As the moment unfolds, guests can watch with pride and emotion. There is space for ample seating so that invitees can be comfortably accommodated. When the weather is not going according to plan, an indoor space can easily be arranged. Indeed, these sheltered celebrations of love and commitment can be embellished expertly with rental items, linens, decorative pillars, and more. After the couple has been officially joined in matrimony, photo opportunities can be enjoyed as the moment is elegantly marked.

For the reception at Cornerstone Theatre & Restaurant, a rustic, yet refined, barn is available to make use of. Here, up to 200 guests can comfortably be accommodated as new memories are made and good times come true. A head table can be set up for the happy couple and a select number of guests to sit. Banquet tables and chairs can also be arranged for the rest of the wedding party. A stage provides space for the couple’s chosen entertainment to set up and perform as everyone dances the night away.

Services Offered

A variety of wedding packages are available for couples to choose from. Depending on which option is selected, different inclusions are present. Some of these features include bar service, audiovisual systems, decorative embellishments, furniture, and more. A wedding coordinator may also be available to guide and assist the couple with planning their special occasion. Those hosting their reception meal at Cornerstone Theatre & Restaurant can savour a variety of catering styles such as hors d’oeuvres, buffets, cocktail receptions, plated meals, and more. Some of their dishes include Caesar salads, crab cakes, barbecue chicken legs, and more.

    Cornerstone was exactly what we wanted for our big day.. didn’t have to do anything and it was great!

    Cornerstone was great. We had our planning session with a wedding planner.. they ended up leaving and so we got set up with Christian. I think this was a blessing as Christian was amazing to work with! There flawless set up and take down was great! I liked not having to decorate. Most of my requests were completed. Keep in mind if you have a bigger wedding... the bar can get backed up easily! We had around 160 people there and it seemed like the line was always long! Only complaint is we had no idea how much midnight lunch to order.. our First planner recommended a number based on our original guest list number and we ran out instantly. The wedding party didn’t get to enjoy any of it! So make sure to be generous with how much you order!

    Best Wedding Venue Ever

    My wife and I can't say enough about this venue and the entire experience. We've been married now for roughly a month and we have had several people tell us that we had one of the best weddings they've ever been to. Cornerstone shares a lot of the credit for this. The food was extremely good (highly recommend the bison stew), the venue is beautiful, the service was great, Kathi (the wedding planner for us) was amazing and Gaston (the DJ) kept everyone dancing all night. They accommodated everything we asked for and made our day go perfectly. I'd give them 6/5 stars if I could.

    Best Day Ever

    It’s been a week since the most perfect wedding day I could have ever hoped for and that is definitely due to the amazing experience I had with Cornerstone Theatre. Kathi, my wedding planner, was incredible at answering all my questions, guiding me and many others involved in the ceremony, decorating the theatre and Canmore Ranch even more beautifully than I thought possible, and all in all, keeping me so low stress because I knew I could trust her with anything. Gaston was a terrific DJ who collaborated with us so well the night of and kept everyone dancing. Every staff member I met was just amazing at their job. And the FOOD. As a vegan couple, we were so grateful for and impressed by the chefs for putting together a vegan buffet that ALL of our guests RAVED about, even my traditional meat-eating Filipino family. I wish I could relive our wedding day over and over because Cornerstone was the best choice we could have ever made. Why would anyone have their wedding anywhere else??

    We loved the cornerstone theater! Perfect venue!

    We are blown away by Cornerstone Theater! We could not have asked for a better ceremony and reception venue. Cornerstone was wonderful to work with and they exceeded all expectations on creating our dream wedding. The ambiance, food, decor, music, seriously everything was spot on. I am forever grateful to have had Kathi as our wedding coordinator. She went above and beyond in helping plan our wedding. She helped every step of the way as well as gave recommendations for decor, food, set up, photography, marriage commissioners, DJ's and anything else we had questions about. She was always available through email or phone and I never felt awkward asking her my 5000 questions I had.
    I am so thankful we had Kathi there during the ceremony and reception! She worked closely with our MC and kept everything on time and running smoothly. Seriously, I could go on and on about Kathi and how thankful I am to have worked with her. Anytime I am in Canmore I will be stopping in to say hi! THANK YOU, THANK YOU Cornerstone for everything! You made our day PERFECT! We without a doubt strongly recommend Cornerstone Theater!

    AMAZING - you will not regret booking at the Cornerstone

    I cannot speak highly enough about Cornerstone, and Kathi in particular who was our wedding coordinator for our magical day. Everything was absolutely perfect. The talented team helped keep us organized, on track and feel as stress-free as possible. All our guests were gushing about how beautiful the venue was, how amazing the food was, and how great the DJ (Gaston) was.

    As a bride-to-be without a ton of free time, I was so appreciative of all the help we got along the way, and that we were able to just drop off our decor the day before and trust that it would be set up in the way we envisioned (actually, it was better than we imagined) and come back the day after the wedding and pick it up. 100% would recommend Cornerstone to anyone looking for a venue in Canmore. It was one of the best choices we made leading up to our big day.
