Cork & Crate - The year-round Mountain View County wedding and event oasis of your dreams.
Cork & Crate Estates started as a family-owned tree farm and was majestically transformed into a one-of-a-kind special events venue. Enjoy the most private and picturesque location in Central Alberta with a space that captures the beauty of nature coupled with the venue you’ve been looking for! Specializing in two venue types, Cork & Crate Estates has not only a boutique “Teahouse” elopement centre but also a large custom venue – “The Courtyard” and “Vine House.” Our 27 acres of amorous trees, sunflowers, and the privacy-fenced estate is located in beautiful Mountain View County west of Hwy 2. Located both 45 minutes south of Red Deer and 45 minutes north of Calgary, you can see why it’s the perfect one-stop sanctuary to celebrate with friends and family. You must see this outdoor haven in person!
Cork & Crate began in 2012 with the wedding story of the founding owners, James and Rhonalyn Carpenter. Their wedding and love is what blossomed their vision of creating a passionately beautiful experience for others looking to join in union. Today the venue can host all types of events, so we hope you will consider our mountain view for your vision!
Why host your wedding at Cork & Crate?
James & Rhonalyn Carpenter’s mission is to provide every bridal couple with the wedding of
their dreams by tailoring each special occasion.
By allowing couples the flexibility and ease of creating their special day, the bridal party, family and guests have a truly unique experience.
The gardens are filled with sunflowers during the summer and fall months, which represent adoration, longevity, and loyalty, the three pillars that Cork & Crate strives to share with every couple.
Every month of the year has a charming view of the farming landscape in the background of this privately-secluded space. You and your guests won’t want to leave!
