Stress Free Wedding

If you’re wanting to have a wedding that’s stress free this is your place! They provide a wedding coordinator (Becky is fantastic) and have a team to do setup and take down. The catering is amazing, 10/10 highly recommend

Great venue and even better food

This venue was pretty great. They help setup and take down the decor so you can enjoy your day and night. They had prosecco and appetizers outside for our guests following the ceremony and then enjoyed an excellent dinner inside. Only con is there is no a/c so it was quite warm in the summer. Still amazing.

Perfect day!!

Everything went perfectly on our wedding day, we didn’t have a single thing we had to deal with. All of our family and friends talked about how good the food was and how nice the venue is. The music was great, the bar service was great, we don’t have a single bad thing to say!

Staff is amazing and knowledgeable

We had a wonderful experienxe planning our dream wedding with Cornerstone Theatre. Our coordinator, Christian, specifically went above and beyond to ensure our stress levels were at a manageable point throughout the planning process by providing helpful feedback and suggestions. Having the catering, the DJ, photobooth, decor, bartenders, etc., in-house was super convenient and allowed us to focus on other aspects of our wedding. The venue is super accommodating and the staff decorated both our ceremony and reception space beautifully. Highly recommend this venue if you are looking to celebrate your wedding in the mountains.

The perfect venue for a mountain wedding!

Highly recommend booking your wedding with cornerstone! They help take so much of the stress out of the planning process, and having Nicole as our Day Of coordinator was amazing! She did a great job at organizing and making sure the day went just as we imagined it would. We had tons of feedback that everyone loved the food. The DJ, Gaston, was great and kept the dance floor going all night long! Amazing day that we’ll remember for years to come!

Love cornerstone

I originally booked Cornerstone in October 2019 for our wedding in 2020. Unfortunately we had to re-schedule multiple times due to the pandemic, and Cornerstone stuck with us the entire time. They were super accommodating to our ever changing plans. Christian was our day of event coordinator and was wonderful throughout our wedding planning process. Our wedding day went smoothly and without any stress due to Cornerstone's planning and execution. They set up and tear down everything, and make the day so easy for everyone involved. Everyone at our wedding had a fantastic time! THANK YOU CORNERSTONE!

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!
