    Would Hire Again In a Heartbeat!

    Amazing even with a pandemic. They had the most customizable options for decor rentals out of all the other venues we looked at. They're view and food was amazing and guests couldn't get enough! Their prices were fair and didn't break the bank. We would recommend to anyone!

    Hallowedding - October 31, 2020

    My now husband, Darren, and I booked Cornerstone Weddings at the Canmore Nordic Centre last year for our big day this past October 31.
    When we first started looking at and hiring vendors, we had no idea that a few months later we would enter a pandemic.
    There has been a lot of up and down emotions this year when it came to planning our wedding. But one thing we could count on was Harry, from Cornerstone Weddings, frequent updates and reassurance that everything was going to work out. We cannot express enough how grateful we are to have had the opportunity to work with Harry and his team. Everyone was quick to respond to emails or phone calls with any questions or concerns that we had. We were continuously updated on health and safety changes and obstacles that we would need to work around.
    The evening before our wedding we dropped off all decor and did a quick run through with Harry on how our big day was going to play out.
    When our day arrived, we had no idea how everything was going to look, the Cornerstone team set everything up for us. And we cannot express enough how incredibly impressed we were with the look of everything.
    When it came to the food we had multiple comments from guests about how good the food was. Comments ranged from "The food was so good!" to "This is the best food I've ever had at a wedding!" and we could not agree more.
    Cornerstone weddings at the Canmore Nordic Centre will definitely be recommended to friends and family as an amazing place to host an event.
    Thank you so much to the entire team!
    You all did an amazing job.

    Hi Emma & Darren,

    It was an absolute pleasure to work with you both, it was such a fun wedding to plan with your Halloween theme and spooky decor.

    Thank you for your kind words, it's great that we got to celebrate with you after such a strange, uncertain year.

    I wish you both a wonderful married life together!

    Regards,

    Hire a Wedding Planner

    Don't get me wrong our wedding was still amazing but I wish we would have hired a Professional Wedding Planner. I was always under the impression that the staff and coordinators were wedding planners enough though and I trusted them so I never considered it but come our wedding day so many details were missed. Important details like putting my late father in law's photo at the heaven table. A sign was broken by staff, lots of decor wasn't put out right, there wasn't nearly as much staff on then I thought there would be even with covid so drinks were soooooo behind for our guests and I had multiple of them complain to me that night because of it. What bride wants to hear that? Not saying they are bad people because the main person we dealt with was actually very nice but so many things went wrong, little things maybe to some but when you've been planning your wedding for over two years and are excited to work with a company with such high reviews your expectations are very high and I feel like we were let down. It still stresses me out to this day. I can't think about our reception without feeling upset.

    Amazing view/ Incredible Team

    We planned our last minute elopement in and Harry helped us plan for our reception (covid friendly). The team was polite and accommodating. The food was amazing! From apps to desserts our guests raved about the taste and presentation.

    Harry the coordinator was so kind to our group. Everyone was blown away by his professionalism and kindness while handling the covid19 rules and guidelines. Harry and his team made our day so special and we can't thank them enough!

    Amazing! Highly recommend

    We had a phenomenal experience with cornerstone. Originally we had planned a 50 person wedding at the Nordic centre and we were having our reception there as well. Unfortunately due to covid we had to drop to an elopement package with no reception. Cornerstone was phenomenal to work with originally, through the change and in planning our elopement ceremony. Harry was a fabulous coordinator who made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed, he was amazing with my family and helped coordinate the photographers, the live stream and the music. The ceremony sites are gorgeous and we had a fabulous day celebrating.
