C+R’s Arlo wedding was an absolute dream to be a part of! Their pink, red, and iridescent colors were as vibrant and beautiful as their love.
About the Happy Couple
This silly and fun-loving couple love to watch shows and movies together. When they’re not at home, they are traveling or going to music concerts. They have an “unconditional love that has allowed us both to be our authentic selves.” With their sweet furbaby, Ava, they are the perfect family.
During our engagement session together, it was clear it was going to be an amazing celebration. Their love and caring personalities are just a joy to be around, not to mention to photograph.
It has finally arrived – Christina and Rene’s wedding day! A gorgeous day (although a little on the hot side but not nearly as bad as it can be in Texas on a summer day) with fluffy clouds and blue sky.
How awesome are these hot pink shoes?! I.am.obsessed!
Rene surprised his bride with a gorgeous bracelet from Helzberg and a sweet love letter:
Christina’s first look with her ladies:
Meanwhile, in the cottage …
St. Catherine of Siena
Because Christina and Rene are Catholic, they opted for a traditional Catholic ceremony at the beautiful St. Catherine of Siena.
Sweet little tender moments between Christina and Rene. I love that he would sneak little kisses on Christina’s hands or forehead throughout the ceremony and the day.
And they’re officially husband and wife!!
Family and Formal Portraits
Post-ceremony, Christina, Rene, and their family and friends head back to the Arlo for more photos, cocktail hour, and their reception.
All the details and planning with the couple and Scarlet Rose Events really paid off. There were beautiful touches of red, pink, and iridescent throughout the venue. What I loved most was how they their own loves and personalities into the decor. For example, their love for going to music concerts was reflected in their guest “book,” which was a record. I mean, how cool is that?!
Their adorable Ava was featured during cocktail hour as part of their signage for their signature drinks (middle row, far right photo):
And their reception room was breathtaking! The Arlo is such an amazing and grand venue. Not only does it have all the views of hill country, but it is a blank canvas that can be transformed into whatever your heart desires. All the colors just pop inside this room!
The custom seating chart by the talented Scarlet Rose Events was magical and had the couple over the moon!

And my favorite time of day … spending some intimate moments with the bride and groom!
Let the party commence!
Have you seen the Arlo at night? This venue is beautiful no matter what time of day, but my favorite is at twilight with the vibrant blues!
Christina and Rene thanked their family and friends for celebrating and supporting them and their love. And then proceeded to thank their vendors, which was unexpected and so sweet!
What’s a last dance without a little Dirty Dancing?! The movie, that is! “I’ve Had the Time of My Life” came on and people were flying everywhere …. literally!
A sweet moment between the bride and her father:
It’s Time to Say Goodnight
And hello to forever as the new Mr. and Mrs. Caceres!!!
Congratulations, Christina and Rene!! Wishing you two the most amazing life together, filled with continued support, love, patience, and the most spectacular adventures!!!
