Father John Keehner officiated at the afternoon ceremony that united the daughter of Robert and Pamela Taybus of Poland, and the son of Merle R. and Lucia Lovell of Poland.
A reception was held in their honor at the Maronite Center in Youngstown, that evening and they left for a honeymoon to Playa Mujeres, Mexico, the following Monday.
