    Happily ever after at Cornerstone Theatre

    Our wedding was everything we had hoped for and more. The staff at Cornerstone Theatre were amazing and made sure that every last detail was perfect. Our Wedding coordinator knew exactly what we wanted and helped to ensure our day was executed flawlessly.

    Great experience

    We just had our wedding at the Cornerstone, and we couldn't have been happier with the service. We had compliments from many guests about the quality of the food, and the beauty of the venue. The Cornerstone also facilitated the ceremony. Everything was set up exactly as discussed and went according to schedule. The staff were a pleasure to work with and very responsive to emails and questions. We loved that the venue was open until 2 am, and that all of our decor was packed up for us at the end.

    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!

    Beautiful Wedding

    I have only had one wedding, but I am pretty confident Cornerstone Theatre is one of the best places to have one!! They are very much in the wedding business and know what they are doing. I was concerned that our wedding would feel canned or like a number but they do a great job of making your wedding day extra special! We are from New York so Canmore was a destination wedding for us. Cornerstone helped us out so much and it was extremely helpful to be able to rent all the centerpieces and other decoration at a reasonable cost! All of the guests absolutely loved the venue. The space is wonderful, the food was good and the s'mores bar and poutine bar were major hits!

    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.
