Mr. and Mrs. Neal Techau of Cynthiana announce the marriage of their daughter, Kensi Elizabeth, to Evan James Duszynski, son of Mr. and Mrs. David Duszynski, also of Cynthiana. The wedding was held on June 30, 2012 at the First Church of God in Lexington, Ky. Pastor Tim Gould of Houston, Texas, friend and former pastor of the bride, officiated the ceremony.
Taylor Techau, sister of the bride, served as maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Ashlyn and Lahni Techau, sisters of the bride, Emily Khouphongsy, sister of the groom, and Lindsay Keyser, Maddi Ury and Emily Andrews, college roommates of the bride.
Jacob Clevinger, friend of the groom, served as best man. Groomsmen were Andrew Case of Cynthiana, and Philip Mullins, James Torell and Jonathan Rehner, college friends of the groom.
Maddox, Harper, and Henry Crouch, cousins of the bride, served as the flower girls and ring bearer, respectively. Debbie Lutes, grandmother of the bride, made the flower basket and ring pillow from an ivory lace dress that the bride wore as a little girl.
Emmalee and Zachary Lutes, cousins of the bride, attended the guestbook and greeted guests. Cousins of the groom, Will Thomas, Jon Keith, James Fletcher, and Charles Andrew Collins, ushered guests to their seats. Tina Miller, friend of the bride’s family, helped coordinate the ceremony.
Processional music was composed by the bride and performed by her friends, Mr. and Mrs. Ely Cartwright of Wilmore, Ky. As the bride made her way down the aisle, escorted by her father, she wore a strapless, ivory satin gown with a lace overlay, featuring a sweetheart bodice with side-drape and ruching. The bride carried a hand tied bouquet of roses, lilies, alstroemeria, Queen Anne’s lace, hypericum berries and seeded eucalyptus. The stems were wrapped with ivory lace, adorned with a cameo brooch that belonged to her late grandmother, Sanna Techau. After being given in marriage by her parents, the bride and groom exchanged vows they had written for one another.
The couple chose a vintage theme for the reception, which was held at the Prizing House in Cynthiana. Centerpieces included fresh flowers arranged in vintage stemware, aged books, and crocheted doilies and teacups, many which belonged to the bride’s grandmothers and late great-grandmothers. As the couple left the reception, they were showered with confetti made from vintage book pages and sheet music.
The couple honeymooned in Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada.
The groom teaches high school biology at Paris High School. The bride is working part time while working on her Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Ky., where the couple resides.
