They accepted congratulations from friends and family, including parents of the bride William and Beverly McConahy of Boardman and parents of the groom Richard and Mary Chisholm of Poland at a 6 p.m. reception in the D.D. and Velma Davis Center at Fellows Riverside Gardens, Youngstown.

They wore pistachio-colored gowns, as did bridesmaids Jessica Chisholm of Highland Park, N.J., sister of the groom, and Ashley Ross of Buford, Ga., and junior bridesmaid Natalie Disante of Pittsburgh, both cousins of the bride.
