The bridegroom-to-be is the son of Craig and Janice Hugger, of Loveland, Colo. He graduated from Merrimack High School in 2002 and earned a bachelor’s degree in digital media from Southern New Hampshire University in 2006, where he authored and taught the school’s first 3D modeling and animation course. He is employed as a senior mechanical designer for Hollis-based medical product development firm Farm, and he also designs and sells plans for kinetic wooden sculptures.

A New Hampshire wedding is planned for next year.
