 ~ Watch the wedding live on the web (updated--it's ready!)

So many of our friends cannot attend over the Thanksgiving holiday... and some of them, knowing that Enten has been doing live broadcasting over the internet (called webcasting) for his Bethany work, started to ask why he couldn't do it for his own wedding, so they could watch... and so we decided that we will!  It won't quite be television quality, but it will allow those at a distance to both see and hear the wedding ceremony using any web browser (such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera, etc.).  So, starting about 10:25 a.m. EST (7:25 a.m. PST) on the day of our wedding, you'll be able to start watching.  Here are the steps to follow... and we suggest you do this at any time before the wedding (like, right now) to make sure you know that it is working.

---Please read through these directions first before starting.....

bullet-Click this link: (link updated Wed afternoon);
bullet-Select "Enter as a Guest," type in your name (and it'd be fun if you also entered your city, so please log in like "Enten Eller; La Verne, CA"), then click on [Enter Room];
bullet-If necessary, allow the Adobe Connect Add-In to load/install/access the internet;
bullet-Watch while the meeting loads... and you can then see our wedding!

It'd be fun to know how many of you are planning to attend from a distance... please let us know by sending an email or jotting us a note in the contact form below!  (Thanks... we're up to over 18 already!)  And even if you do choose to watch from a distance, we'd still like to see you in person at one of our other events, if you can make it to either La Verne or Richmond (see below!).

 ~ Additional Details for All Events

The wedding service itself will begin about 10:45 a.m. ... but you won't want to miss the harp music starting at 10:30 a.m.  There is plenty of parking at the church, and the reception is also at the church immediately following the service (see next topic). Childcare will not be provided as children are most welcome in the service.

The other celebrations we have planned are as follows.  

* CA: Wednesday, November 28th, 5:30 - 7:00 p.m.  ~ Open House 
      La Verne (CA) Church of the Brethren  --  2425 "E" Street,  La Verne, CA 91750

For the Open House in California, we will be in the Social Hall (the small parlor off the kitchen to the east) at the La Verne Church of the Brethren for people to drop by and greet us.  Come by any time between 5:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. to visit and enjoy some snacks and punch.

* IN: Sunday, December 16th, 10:30 a.m. ~ Worship, Reception Luncheon at Noon  
      Richmond (IN) Church of the Brethren  -- 1 SW 17th St, Richmond, IN 47374

For the event in Indiana, we are combining several celebrations!  During the 10:30 a.m. worship service, Mary will be received as a new member of the Richmond congregation (transferring her membership from Spring Creek), and Enten will be ordained into the set-apart ministry.  Kathy and Steve Reid have accepted Enten's invitation to preach. We will provide a luncheon after the service to welcome Mary to this community, to celebrate Enten's ordination, and to have a reception to celebrate our wedding with our Indiana community!  (Wow!)

 ~ Bridal Shower Photos ... just for fun!

Mary's sister, sister-in-law, and close friend decided to invite about 30 friends to surprise Mary with a Bridal Shower on Sunday, Nov. 4.  Mary was quite taken unawares... and it was a delightful time!  Enten was in on the secret, and was able to attend for the first part of the afternoon before driving back to Indiana... but he was surprised, too, when a present included Mickey ears for him, also!  (The Mickey Mouse veil and top-hat will come in handy as we go to Disneyland.)
