What gets my attention when I'm late for a wedding

This afternoon I attended a wedding at a small very old country church. Got there a little on the late side and ended up sitting in the very back of the church behind a soundboard.

The soundboard of discussion is not the one pictured here. This one is just an image I pulled from the internet. I thought it might be a little awkward standing up to take a picture of a church's soundboard in the middle of a wedding when I started thinking about it.

Why I started to think about it was because it looked so out of place. Inside a little century plus old country church was a cluster of sound equipment that looked like it came from a recording studio. A big soundboard. Several wireless receivers. Three computer monitors that were off the whole time. Plus a bunch of other equipment all constantly being adjusted and fiddled with by a guy wearing very big headphones.

I imagine the service sounded outstanding to the guy wearing the headphones. But to me, it sounded like a service in a little century plus old country church. Maybe the church needs enough headphones for everyone.
