Abigail Amberjoy Merando and Daniel Christopher Davis will exchange vows on July 20 in St. Francis of Assisi Chapel at The Mission Inn in Riverside, California. The Rev. Eric Heard will officiate.
The bride, born in Ottawa, Kansas, later moving to California, is the daughter of Richard and Meredith Merando of Williston, Florida.
The groom was born in Yadkinville to Barry and Angelita Davis of Chino Hills, California. His grandmother, Shirley Baugus, resides in Yadkinville. In late 2016, Daniel moved to California for ministry and serves as a worship pastor at Inland Hills Church, Chino Hills.
At one point, Abigail and Daniel lived in Winston-Salem, not even three miles apart. They went to the same church, frequented the same downtown coffee shops, had many common friends, and even met some of each other’s family members. Both felt the calling of God to ministry, yet they still never crossed paths until both were living in California.
Following their wedding, which will be a time to celebrate every hope, dream and vision that has come to pass just as God promised He would fulfill, a reception will be held at The Mission Inn.
Following the ceremony, the couple will reside in Chino Hills.
Those wishing to send well-wishes can write them at Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Davis, 16635 Longacre Ave., Chino Hills, CA 91709/
