Today, Robin Arzón and her husband share two children together, a daughter, Athena, and a son, Atlas. We look back on their love story here, including how they met, and special details from their memorable wedding.

Who is Robin Arzón's Husband? All About Drew Butler

Robin Arzón's husband is Drew Butler, an investment manager based in New York City. He holds degrees from Cornell University and Columbia University and has also worked in real estate. He's the CEO of his wife's lifestyle membership club Swagger Society, which is described as "a kingdom of growth-mindset Hustlers who motivate each other to unlock their true potential."

How Robin Arzón and Drew Butler Met

Robin Arzón met her husband Drew Butler at a speakeasy bar in Manhattan's East Village in 2016. They hit it off instantly, and within months of knowing each other, Arzón revealed they had a "spiritual union" ceremony at Burning Man that year. Butler officially proposed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, after running a marathon. The sweet moment occurred on the famed Rocky stairs.

Robin Arzón and her husband got married in February 2019—and you can relive all the exclusive details we shared about their wellness-focused nuptials below. The couple debuted their first child, daughter Athena Amelia Arzón-Butler, to the world on March 2, 2021, sharing the first photos of their child and a joint statement about their growing family.

"My husband Drew and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our first child, Athena Amelia Arzón-Butler," Arzón told People. "From the moment we found out we were expecting, we felt so connected to her—like we knew her before in a past life. We just feel so blessed and grateful that she's finally here and cannot wait to embark on this next chapter and continue building a remarkable legacy with the newest member of our Wolfpack."

They welcomed their second child, son Atlas Sage Arzón-Butler, on July 16, 2023. "Our family feels complete! I marvel at Athena and Atlas now that I'm a mom of two," the mom of two told People. "Even though there's natural chaos, I feel deeply anchored in this chapter of my life. It feels right."

Robin Arzón's Wedding Photos & Details

Robin Arzón's wedding to Drew Butler was the definition of a highly personalized event. The Tulum soirée involved all-vegan fare, sunrise yoga, and a wedding day 5K—but the most important thing was that it was definitely ideal for her and her husband.

The pair wanted their February wedding celebration to have all the spirituality of Burning Man, combined with the tranquility of their natural surroundings, punctuated with great songs and music mixes to get their guests groovin' on the dance floor. "Our daily lives are rooted in high-vibration fitness, health, and wellness," Arzón told The Knot in her exclusive wedding announcement. "We wanted our wedding to be an immersive experience, not one day. We are spiritually luxe, and our weekend is where Burning Man meets elegance and community. We planned every event of our wedding weekend with the same precision as the actual wedding."

The couple hosted 90 of their closest friends and family for the weekend, which was divided into several different days' worth of activities, all thoughtfully curated to encourage relaxation, flow, and community.

"We wanted our wedding to be a four-day affair where guests left feeling connected with each other and better than they felt when they arrived," Arzón said. See the couple's full wedding album captured by photographer Carlos Elizondo below.

The Venue

The couple went big with their wedding celebrations, hosting events for their guests at several different locations throughout Tulum from Thursday through Monday.

"We wanted to throw a luxe, wellness-focused Burning Man festival on the beach," Arzon explained. That meant plans that included "100% vegan food, a cacao ceremony, cenote excursions, morning meditation, [and] sunset yoga."

Robin Arzón's Wedding Dresses

"Reem Acra designed both of my wedding looks," Arzón said. "We wanted the ceremony to feel formal, even though it was on a cliff overlooking the beach." Her first dress was an A-line lace gown with long sleeves and a simple veil, while her second dress showed off a bit more of Arzón's personality.

"The second reception look was a two-piece dress that showed my tattoos. I also had a custom jacket made with two skulls holding hands that says 'Til Death Do Us Part.' Our crew was going to party late into the night and our afterparty was the biggest party in Tulum. I needed two looks!"

The Wedding Rings

Drew Butler and Robin Arzón's wedding rings held personal significance to the newlyweds. Butler custom-designed Arzon's engagement ring (just months after they met!), working with Doug Blanchard of Boston Jewelry Company to create a unique ring that looked like "She-Ra meets Beyonce meets Royalty." Butler opted to wear his late father David Webb's wedding band, a braided two-tone gold ring that Arzón renewed with a personalized inscription.

The Wedding Party

The wedding party looked, like the bride and groom, sharp. Arzón's six bridesmaids had two options for their wedding day looks: either a navy lace jumpsuit or a body-hugging yellow dress. Hair and makeup was done by Tiffanie Garrett, who flew in just for the day from New York City.

"Given the tropical location, we weren't afraid of color," Arzón mused. The gals all donned chandelier earrings handmade by Italian artist LeAleCreazioni to unify the looks. Butler's six groomsmen wore custom blue suits with marigold pocket squares for a pop of color. Their jackets were each inscribed with #arzoninlove as a subtle nod to the special occasion.

The Wedding Decor

In keeping with the environmentally friendly feel of the five-day wedding ceremony (Arzón and Butler didn't use any paper stationery, opting to send invitations and save the dates digitally), the couple similarly made conscious decisions about their flowers. The event planning and design were done by Kerry Beach Events, who kept these details in mind throughout the process of filling out the venue.

"It was important not to be wasteful and also use what's natural to the jungle around us," she said, adding that they used white, black, green and yellow elements in their bouquets. "The chuppah was made of large palm fronds and suspended from the ceiling, creating a floating effect that overlooked the ocean."

The Music

Both Arzón and Butler are big music fans, and so it should come as no surprise that they were picky about what was playing throughout their wedding day. The pair selected DJ Mode, who customized the music selections after flying in from NYC for the day.

"All of our ceremony music was a solo acoustic guitar playing Bob Marley, Elvis, Sade, Bill Withers," Arzón reflected. "I walked [down the aisle] to 'Unchained Melody' and Drew walked in to 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow.'" The couple's first dance was a mashup of Etta James' "At Last" and Drake's "One Dance," ending with Elvis Crispo's "Suavemente."

The Drinks

The couple got creative with their cocktail hour beverages, offering up a number of custom-created cocktails, courtesy of Mezcal in the Jungle. Drinks included the Lovely (raspberries, lemongrass agave honey, fresh pineapple, Mezcal); the Sirio (tangerine juice, infused aperitif, basil, Mezcal); the Velvet (hibiscus elixir, pineapple, yellow lemon, Mezcal); and the spicy passion fruit margarita (Mezcal, fresh passion fruit, chile de arbol tincture, Himalayan salt rim).

The Wedding Menu

"We designed every vegan dish directly with chef Jose at Papaya Playa Project," Arzón explained. "We wanted our guests to feel wowed by vegan food like cauliflower tartar, balsamic glazed peaches, coconut milk risotto, as well as traditional Mexican dishes."

To complete their guests' experience, the couple sent everyone off with prepared bags that included custom aviators (#arzoninlove), custom-etched palo santo to "clear their energy," all natural/organic SPF, bug spray, and healthy vegan snacks.

The Takeaway

Looking back on her wedding planning experience, there's one piece of advice Robin Arzón wants other to-be-weds to hear. "Hire a planner if you can afford it," she suggested. "I honestly didn't want to get into the weeds of wedding planning. I'm decisive AF and didn't want to spend tons of time on tiny things. This was streamlined! [Also,] Tulum is a different speed than New York. Definitely hire someone you trust to get the best rates, keep vendors on task, and get [it] done."
