This Amarillo Affair Featured a Unique Hexagonal Wedding Cake

Peyton Bivins & Trey Sidwell
April 30, 2022

The bride’s cousin can take a lot of credit for how Peyton Bivins and Trey Sidwell ended up together—the beloved family member had been best friends with Trey since childhood. When fate brought Peyton and Trey back to their hometown of Amarillo as adults, it was Peyton’s cousin who set them up on their first date. Five years later, the whole family was gathered at their ranch for a birthday party when Trey took Peyton out onto the balcony and proposed. “He’s just very caring and always supportive,” the bride says. “We’re each other’s people.” Following a honeymoon in Bora Bora, the pair have settled into married life with their dogs, Weezy and Olivia.

Hometown Affair

The couple wed in the church connected to their childhood school. Following the ceremony, guests walked a block to the reception site: the home of Peyton’s paternal grandmother and namesake. The home also inspired the design of the dance floor, which borrowed a pattern from the dining room’s ceiling. “We had lots of celebrations and family dinners under that ceiling growing up,” explains Peyton of the choice.

Petite Petals

Peyton had two bouquets made for the day of the wedding so she could make a gametime decision—one, a larger arrangement, and the other, a small spray of lily of the valley. “I liked the simplicity of it with the veil and the overall look,” she says. “It has that classic air about it.”
