Travis & Meagan
First Lutheran River Haven Wedding Photos
Can you believe it?? Fargo now has two Dr. Hoffmans! Travis & Meagan were married on Saturday at First Lutheran Church in downtown Fargo, in the middle of a freak October snowstorm that honestly just made the whole weekend prettier. You know Fargo…plan a fall wedding and it might look like Christmas! I call Meagan my Southern belle bride. She’s a classy lady with expertise in 4H development who loves Mardi Gras and Southern food. (I’m still having dreams about the jambalaya at their wedding reception) She has this mega-watt smile, energy and accent that just makes you happy inside when you’re around her. Travis is the peanut butter to her jelly. His friendly helpfulness and charming personality literally won her over the day they met working at NDSU. These two are adored by their family, friends and the local community and I feel SO lucky to have met them both!
Travis & Meagan wrote each other letters and read them aloud at the start of their wedding day. The moment they locked eyes, they felt all the emotions.
Some gorgeous, classic church portraits.
Outside, it was a First Lutheran Snow Globe!
Magnolias, of course.
You can just hear Meagan’s laugh. 🙂
Those “just married” smiles!
It’s not very often you get snow and fall color in one image.
Travis & Meagan were the second couple to hold their wedding reception at the brand new “Riverhaven” wedding venue. It’s a gorgeous, historic building near the Red River and a lovely place for a reception.
There’s a story behind the paper towels.
I can only imagine how Travis & Meagan must have felt looking down at all their friends and loved ones. Special moment!
Meagan and I did a top-secret bridal session in my studio this past August, so she could have this framed and on display at her wedding reception! Southern tradition!
Travis & Meagan know how to throw an amazing party with REALLY good food.
Dance time! Travis and his siblings spontaneously hugged in the center of the dance floor for a few minutes. Their mom passed away in 2000, and I know they were thinking of her. I’m pretty sure they were saying hi to their mama in that moment.
Entertainment….piano bar style!!
Of course I had to do some magical night portraits.
Congratulations, Travis & Meagan! I’m SO happy for you both!!!
