An Intimate Garden-Inspired Wedding at Tiny Boxwoods in Houston, Texas

Playing off the natural beauty of the venue, Nicole Maples (31 and a clinical social worker) and Bruce Bush (32created a casual yet romantic feel in an intimate garden setting.

Early in their relationship, Bruce took Nicole to Tiny Boxwoods — a restaurant beloved by Houstonians — and it quickly became one of their favorite brunch spots in the city. “When I learned it was available for events, I knew no other venue would compare,” she says.

Nicole wanted her three bridesmaids to feel comfortable in their attire, so each picked her own neutral look. “Given the rainy weather, they all chose hairstyles that would weather the storm and the humidity,” she says.

Nicole completed her romantic vintage-inspired style with a set of earrings and a matching brooch worn in her hair that had belonged to her great-grandmother. “This was such a special gift,” Nicole says. “My grandmother was so happy to have a piece of her mother with us that day.”
