    Barbara Waldrep - Mother of the Bride- Nicole George

    I could not have asked for a more perfect venue for my daughters wedding! It was a beautiful setting among God’s creation and was absolutely beautiful! Kim and her husband were wonderful to work with and even after the ceremony I still consider them family! When we were visiting other venues in the area, they were all beautiful, but when we went to Cornerstone for the first time, none of the others were close in comparison. They really cared about every detail! So if you are looking for a venue for a wedding, a reunion, or a birthday/anniversary venue, I strongly suggest you visiting Cornerstone. You will not regret it!

    Ray and I were so blessed to be a part of Nicole and Bryan's special day. We consider you all family also. Thank you so much for a sweet review and please stay in touch!

    MOB, and I could not have been happier.
    Kim and Ray had all the connections possible, and were dedicated to making my daughter's wedding as unique as she is...

    The Barn at Cornerstone for reception and lodging for wedding party

    This venue was so cute. Barn allowed 100 guests seating for reception and a dance floor without moving tables. Bridal party and family stayed on site with accommodations for 26. Ray and Kim were very professional and helped us where needed. Our guests loved it. We would do it again. They knew how and where to set up the food and beer truck too and totally understood the event and flow of our guests.

    Thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure being a part of Jackie and Ben's special day. Hope to see you soon!!
