    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.

    Simply amazing!

    This is a long time coming since we got married in August, but I can't say enough about how amazing Cornerstone was for our big day! The staff felt like family, the food was to die for, and the venue is incredibly beautiful. They do everything they can to make your wedding day go smoothly and to make it take the form of what you'd pictured in your mind. One of the first things I said when we got back from our honeymoon is "aw man, now we won't get to go to Cornerstone anymore!"... honestly, if you book them you won't be disappointed :)

    Thanks so much, Cornerstone theatre for being part of our love story. You are amazing!

    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.
