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 the Canmore Ranch offers spectacular views of the mountains. Couples can take in the fresh air as they say their vows and exchange rings. As the moment unfolds, guests can watch with pride and emotion. There is space for ample seating so that guests 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, a rustic, yet refined, barn is available. Here, up to 200 guests can comfortably be accommodated as new memories are made and good times roll. A stage provides space for the couple’s chosen entertainment to set up and perform as everyone dances the night away.

    Amazing experience!

    We cannot say enough great things about Cornerstone Theatre! From our initial visit right up until the actual wedding, they were nothing short of amazing. We had so many ups and downs with Covid, and anytime I reached out to them in a panic, they were quick to reply and put my mind at ease. Cornerstone is great because they take care of so much of what would normally cause stress (decor set up/take down, finding a DJ, catering, etc), it felt great knowing that they were on top of everything and that we could relax a bit. The food was excellent, and the Chef worked with us to create a customized entree that our guests kept raving about! Our venue coordinator Christian was fabulous with answering my emails and questions, and making me feel completely at ease. I highly recommend Cornerstone Theatre if you're looking for a fabulous wedding venue in Canmore!

    We pulled off an amazing feat!

    During COVID, our 2020 wedding had to be re-booked and there was a while where we didn't know if it would even happen in 2021 either. I did struggle with some of the emails that were sent back and forth from the office (some didn't appear in our inboxes for some unknown reason!), and occasionally felt the tone from one individual was bossy. BUT our planner was so helpful and kind. She and the other staff members worked tirelessly and efficiently that whole day, and it was a wedding to remember! So many guests praised the venue and the food. Most importantly, my husband and I had one of the greatest days ever. Thank you!

    Your venue search is over. If you want a STRESS FREE day, go with the Cornerstone!

    If you want a mountain wedding, this is your spot. The cornerstone sets you up with a wedding coordinator (Joanne for us) and helps you plan the whole day. Cornerstone provides the dj, catering, decor (if you want it), planning, day of coordination, set up and take down, and a GOOD TIME. So many who attended my wedding mentioned how relaxed my wife and I were, not worrying about what's next or what's going wrong. Because we left it in their hands. Not to mention the venue is gorgeous! Rustic, classy, and inviting. I cannot wait to attend a wedding here for someone I know and love. I would recommend the cornerstone again and again - yes you do pay a premium for them to do all this for you, however it saved us months of stress when planning and re planning a wedding through a pandemic.

    Thank you Joanne for being a source of positivity, hope and light when planning a wedding during covid!

    Worth Every Penny - Stress Free!

    We are so incredibly glad that we chose Cornerstone for our wedding. We live in Ontario, so planning a covid wedding was hard enough but the distance made it even tougher. Going with Cornerstone was the best choice we could have ever made - the handled everything and we barely had to worry about a thing. They handled almost every detail of our wedding outside of photography, hair/makeup, transportation and officiant. It is absolutely worth the premium!! They made our wedding about as stress-free as it could be during this stressfull time, and that is exactly what we needed. Having setup & take down included was a DREAM, and the party going until 2:00am was a massive perk. Joanne answered every email so quickly and she is HILARIOUS. The venue is absolutely stunning, food was supurb.. we could go on. Just go with them. They were our perfect match!

    We were in the right hands with Cornerstone

    We had an elopement style ceremony at Canmore Ranch. It was beautiful and communication/execution with the team at Cornerstone was a dream. They were so accommodating and it was such a beautiful day!
