Wedding at Olympia’s Valley Estate in Petaluma

A Sound Objective had the honor and privilege of providing sound for another wedding ceremony at the heavenly Olympia’s Valley Estate in Petaluma just a few weeks ago. It’s always a pleasure working with our partners at Ivy Hill Entertainment to provide clients with the highest quality musical entertainment and custom designed audio services.

Wedding at The Culinary Institute in St. Helena

The audio table was hidden behind a hedge during a recent wedding at the Culinary Institute of America while Tim Marconett of Ivy Hill Entertainment played for the ceremony. Here we are doing a brief #soundcheck. Thanks to Elle Inspired Productions for bringing together so many great teams for a flawless event! ♥️👰💍🤵♥️

Katherine Delmar Burke School Choir Event

Big thanks to superstar employee, Jill Dockter, for her excellent audio work during the student choir Winter Sing event atthe Katherine Delmar Burke School in SF! I’m fortunate to have her working with my company, A Sound Objective. And I’m proud to provide her with opportunities to learn and grow as a live-sound/concert engineer. I’ve trusted Jill on some difficult gigs but also did everything I could to set her up each time for a confidence building win.

This gig was also important because the Katherine Delmar Burke School is dedicated to educating, encouraging and empowering girls from grades K-8. It’s important these young performers and students see examples of professional women happily succeeding in technical roles (sound, lighting, video, etc.). It’s a much needed and long overdue change for female-identifying people to be taking the lead in the world of audio so as an employer I’m glad to step back and be the “assistant engineer” at times. -Paul (Owner)

FKDP in San Francisco

A Sound Objective had a great time yesterday donating a sound system for the Fat Kid Dance Party event at SOMArts in San Francisco! Bevin is such a amazingly good dance instructor that has created a totally warm, welcoming, supportive and FUN environment for not only fat people but all marginalized folks that have been made to feel awkward, uncomfortable or ashamed when dancing. Dancing should be a joy for everyone that wants to participate! 🙏👏❤️💙💚💛💜💞💖 #FatAcceptance #NoFatShaming #BodyPositivity #BodyLiberation #DancePart #PositiveVibes

Wedding at Timber Cove Resort in Jenner

It’s never just “another day at the office” when you’re given the privilege of helping someone celebrate their wedding! Our role is providing the wireless mic’s while avoiding acoustic feedback via careful mixing and equalization so that all of the guests hear every word of the ceremony clearly. It’s also important to use the smallest, least visually obtrusive speakers possible so as to not wreck the aesthetic considerations. I mean, just look at that view from Timber Cove Resort!!! Who the heck wants that cluttered with unnecessary tech gear?!?

Much love and gratitude to Ivy Hill Entertainment and Roque Events for bringing in A Sound Objective once again! 🙏❤️
