CEDARVILLE, Ohio— Emily Davis, a senior early education major from Wilmington, is among those Cedarville University students currently planning their weddings amidst the pandemic.

Davis has encountered unique planning challenges due to COVID, and yet her creative problem-solving skills are ensuring that, come wedding day, they’ll be able to say “I do.”

Even if it is through a mask.

Davis, who has accomplished much in preparation for her May 2 wedding to Luke Brittan — a graduate student from Mattawan, Michigan in Cedarville’s Master of Divinity program — encountered one of her biggest obstacles while planning the reception desserts.

“One problem we encountered was about one of the most important parts — the dessert!” she shared. “We are planning to have Bill’s donuts for dessert, but the last I checked, they were closed due to COVID. Hopefully, they will be back open in time for the wedding.”

Despite the challenges of planning a pandemic wedding, Davis has found joy and excitement in the process, wading through difficulties with creativity and grace in anticipation of the days they’ll say their vows. And nothing, not even COVID-19, can dampen her enthusiasm for the big day.
