Beer, wine, lemonade, mint juleps, punch, and yes, sweet tea – you’d expect to find any of them at a Southern wedding reception. But a sweet tea bar? Well, that’s a new one on us! When Ginny from Sleepy Fox Photography emailed to tell us about a new tea company catering to weddings that just popped up in Huntsville, Alabama, we knew we had to share. Hugs to Ginny and White Rabbit Studios for these photos of Piper & Leaf!

Connor, his sister Brigette, and her husband Caleb, unified by a common dream of helping turn Huntsville into a town overflowing with art and beauty, decided to open a farmer’s market booth selling compost. Yep, compost! Tea was thrown in as an afterthought, but it was what sold out their first day (while the compost was left untouched). They quickly became a part of almost every local farmers market, were introduced into local shops, opened an online store, and began selling at nearby shopping malls.

We were most excited to hear about their Artisan Tea Bars for weddings and events, which offer a ritzy, non-alcoholic, and economical alternative to the standard bar package. The experience begins with a personalized tea tasting with a Piper & Leaf sommelier to help you choose your flavors (they can even custom blend flavors for the occasion!) and serving options. The look of the bar can be customized to blend with everything from a black tie affair to a down home bash, and each guest gets a customized glass bottle or jar to take home as a keepsake! Alabama couples can find more details here.

From Piper & Leaf: We’re a family who loves working together, creating community, growing local, and serving delicious tea. Our custom, locally blended teas are created with local herbs and fruits that we grow, pick, forage, or attain from other farmers and friends and mixed with heaping doses of happiness and love. Piper & Leaf Gardens is the unique taste of Alabama in a cup (or jar) of tea.

Will y’all be serving sweet tea at your weddings?
