    Incredible Place for Ceremony and Reception

    I fell in love with the photos and the idea of being married in the Rocky Mountains. We quickly booked a meeting to check it out, and the rest is history. Cornerstone literally makes your wedding planning life easy! From the original booking, to food tasting, to the many last minute e-mail questions (on my behalf!), they know 100% what they’re doing. Joanne was our main contact and was a dream to work with. She’s so caring, and not once did I feel uncomfortable or questioned her abilities. She was made for this job. Not only that though, Cornerstone does everything for you! We dropped off our decorations the day before and showed up to the reception with it beautifully decorated. The ceremony was the same way, chairs set-up and taken down all on their part, and everyone was told what to do and when. Joanne even took on the role of dog holder prior to us walking down the aisle. They also have an amazing chef (my guests are still raving about the salmon and beef!), and an incredible in-house DJ. They even allowed for additional touches, like delivering everyone a Coors Light to do a toast to my Dad! Not once did I have to worry about anything, and I cannot thank everyone there enough for making our day perfect, in every single way!

    Great venue

    This venue was fantastic. They did everything and made the day care free. I was able to relax and take in the beauty of the wedding. I would recommend it in a heartbeat! It may appear that it is a pricey location; but it is worth every penny.

    Wedding of your Dreams!

    My title says it all! Stop everything you are doing and getting married here! The Food is amazing, the staff is amazing , and all around a great place! The venue is the perfect setting for those that want rustic, modern, and sophisticated all at the same time. April, the wedding coordinator is awesome she is 100% involved with you all along your wedding journey, pretty much like your own Wedding planner. The cornerstone has a decor menu that was incredible and saved us a lot of time planning decor items as the venue already had a lot of the stuff we wanted! The bar was incredible, great drinks and the opportunity to have what ever type of bar you'd like. Oh... the food was 100% something else too. You can tell that the chefs in the kitchen have a real passion for their job. The food was incredible and we still have some of our guests still raving about it.

    My only tip is that you do not use their in house DJ. We attended a wedding there a few weeks ago, and their DJ was not good at all!! Make sure you do some research on who you'd like to DJ for your wedding as the dancing is an important part of the night!

    Other than that my husband and I had an incredible, stress free, beautiful wedding at the Cornerstone & i highly recommend! :)
    This venue books 1.5 years in advance, so if you LOVE IT then book it ASAP! It was a little pricey, but not being stressed out on my wedding day was 100% worth it!

    Perfect Wedding Venue

    This is a true one-stop-shop wedding venue, they do everything you could think of and more! It has a great rustic feel to it but is also a bit of a raw canvas to make it into your dream venue. We had countless comments from our guests about how wonderful the venue is, some even said it's the best wedding venue they've ever been to! The food is also fantastic with a lot of options, and have fun with the food tasting! We couldn't have been happier with our wedding venue!

    Most amazing staff!

    We had the most beautiful wedding at the cornerstone. The staff are amazing, the food is unreal and APRIL (the event coordinator) is the most spectacular, kind, and phenomenal person ever.

    When our photographer showed up seemingly under the influence and barely able to hold her camera, I approached April and asked her if she could please find us someone else. Within one hour, she had! And good thing because our original photographer ended up bailing on the reception without a word spoken to us. Probably for the better, as the photographer who stepped in was amazing.

    April went with my vision 100 percent and made sure everything was executed perfectly. This venue is unreal on its own, but April is really the star. Nearly everyone remarked that they’ve never had food this good, especially at a wedding. My suggestion: GET THE STEW!

    I am happy we were able to assist with finding you a new photographer and that you were pleased with your new photos.

    PS - I agree, Chef Bryn's 48 hour bison stew is amazing!
