Intimate โœจ (inโ€ขtiโ€ขmate) adj. meaning closely acquainted, familiar, close. ๐Ÿ’›

Nothing sums up our micro-wedding and minimonies better than intimate! ๐Ÿฅฐ Bringing together just a handful of your closest friends and family for a smaller wedding day can still be absolute electricity! Thatโ€™s part of what makes an intimate moment so unforgettable- no magic is lost and no moment missed. ๐Ÿ’›

If larger soireฬes are a must for you, we get it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ You can always tie the knot know, and celebrate later, too! We only have a handful of 2020 dates left for our micro packages!

ICYMI ๐ŸŽ‰ Last week we launched our micro-wedding packages! ๐Ÿ˜ What this also included was ceremony only options! Or, if you're hip to the COVID lingo: mini-monies! ๐Ÿฅณ This is ideal for someone who maybe has decided to have a larger reception in the future when it's safe, but would still like to go ahead and tie the knot right now; or perhaps have lost your venue due to COVID. Head up to our stories + click to view the packages and pricing! ๐Ÿ’›
We know this climate is so uncertain and couples around the world are making really difficult decisions with their wedding plans. We're here for all of our couples (current and future) to help any way we can! ๐Ÿฅฐโœจ

โœจ "It's a warm celebration, of all of our years. I dream of our story; of our fairytale." โœจ
Even among a crowd, two people encapsulated in each other's presence can be so moving! ๐Ÿ˜ It's as if no other person exists except the two of them. ๐Ÿ’› Beautifully captured by the one and only ๐ŸŒฟ
โญ ICYMI: We're offering a few micro-wedding packages! If you are newly engaged, not looking to postpone, content with a small crowd, or just ready to tie the knot- we'd love to have you! Reach out to us! *(Restrictions may apply, subject to availability.) โญ

Making 6 feet look pretty glamorous! ๐Ÿ˜ During weddings, there is a certain closeness that is celebrated; both physically and emotionally. ๐Ÿ’› Social distancing can seem nearly impossible (or desirable, for that matter). But, we are lucky during these times to have ceilings so elevated + windows and walls so far reaching that make safe distancing that much easier. ๐Ÿค—
We know that wedding planning during a pandemic is not for the faint of heart. There are many hard conversations to be had right now about your plans + preferences for moving forward with a postponement or a small celebration. Whichever is ideal or fits your wishes is totally up to YOU! ๐Ÿ’›
Like a bad house guest, COVID has decided to stay longer that expected! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ข So, we've been working tirelessly to find creative ways to help our couples, no matter their wedding preferences! Stay tuned to see more of what we've been up to! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿค—

When sent me Katie + Freddie's wedding gallery, I thought to myself, "Wow! Shots like this are what make downtown weddings so magical!" ๐Ÿ’™

The photo ops in our space among the sun and the stars, as well as those among the scenery at ground level in the city are second to none! I may be biased, but, I believe it makes our venue otherworldly. ๐Ÿ˜

Hi! ๐Ÿ‘‹ I'm Sarah, the Events Manager at HQ Raleigh & the Cannon Room. Here, we cowork by day and celebrate by night. ๐ŸŒƒ I joined the HQ Team full-time in early December, leaving my career in the mental health world behind. But, I am no stranger to the hospitality, restaurant, or events industry. In fact, some of you may recognize me from my own business that began when I left NY and relocated to Raleigh about 4 years ago. ๐ŸŒŸ

I didn't just come to say hi. I also wanted to lend a hand, ear, or shoulder- whatever may be needed by those of you who may be experiencing stress, struggle, or sadness with the changes due to the COVID crisis. ๐Ÿ’› To our 2020 couples: I'm here for you. I'm here to support you, to answer any questions you may have, and help accommodate your needs during this time of uncertainty. ๐Ÿ’› To our vendor friends: I'm here with you and for you during this difficult and fearful time and happy to support your local business in any way I possibly can. ๐Ÿ’› Undoubtedly, we are better together! ๐Ÿฅฐ

๐ŸŒฒ Henry + Emma | 1.04.20๐ŸŒฒ These two had the most dazzling winter wedding.โœจ Not to mention this was the most fragrant arch to date. It was so simply eco-chic and they did such a wonderful job making it uniquely them! ๐Ÿ’— Emma did a great job on her layout which allowed guests to stay comfortably seated at their tables during the ceremony with exceptional views of the two saying "I do!" โ˜บ๏ธ We're over the moon about this unique look.

One of the many things that looks stunning in our space is family style seating with our wood tables! This was a behind the scenes shot I grabbed while Christie {} was setting up for N'Dome and Vashun's New Year's Eve Wedding!โœจ๐ŸŒฟ The pops of peachy-pink, ivory, and shades of sage were so perfect and naturally beautiful in our natural light.

Stephanie and Michaelโ€™s breezy day wedding was absolutely breath taking! They turned our space into a fairytale dream.

One of the things I loved most about Stephanie and Michael's downtown Raleigh wedding day was how completely unfazed everyone seemed to be about the cold weather (even this Florida girl and her frozen fingers found myself totally forgetting about it while I was snapping away). It helps that it was the "best day ever" and possibly all the gorgeous fur shrugs each of the bridesmaids had a chance to throw on and look super stylish in played a role too. What a beautiful group, lovely couple and completely wonderful day it was through and through. Thanks for inviting me in for the fun (for another Huston sister wedding)! Congrats you two!
