Ben did the lighting and sound system for my daughter's wedding.  It was wonderful!  The large chandelier was beautiful and gave a romantic, elegant feel to the outdoor space.  Loved the ambiance the twinkling lights gave after the sun went down. I highly recommend using Ben and his crew!  Thank you for a job well done, and for helping us in our sound needs! More...

Ben and Jen are SO amazing to work with!  They are quick to respond, patient, and know how to deliver amazing lighting results.  I LOVE lighting and think that it can truly transform a space.  Ben and Jen did the lighting for my wedding and all I can say is WOW... they made the venue look so beautiful!  The uplights, gobo... everything was perfect.  They are so reliable and I appreciated all of their amazing suggestions.  The pin spots on our centerpieces & seating chart were the perfect touch.  Can't recommend Ampersand Events enough!

It was a pleasure working with Ben Penman at Ampersand Events, he came and met us at the venue with no problem. Kept communication with us up until the wedding date; and delivered excellent lighting. We were both happy with the quality of his work and would recommend his company to friends/family.

Thank You,
Jarrod

AMAZING! Ben and Jen were truly the best choice for a DJ and Lighting team! I loved my venue, but their lighting skills made the venue so much better! Their ease and knowledge of how the whole day should work was perfect. SUPER EASY to work with, they gave me the support that we needed throughout the day. They kept us on schedule and had the whole room dancing! Half of our crowd was Latino and half Caucasian, and they were all dancing the whole night! Their fun spirited personality really set the mood and ambiance! I highly recommend Ampersand Events for all your sound and lighting needs! They were great! More...

Ben & Jen are fabulous!! They were eager to work with us, and help in all that we needed early on in the wedding planning. We met with them in the comfort of their home, and got to see their amazing DJ equipment and examples of the monogram lighting they were able to get made for us to be projected onto the dance floor. It turned out gorgeous!Their online system for requesting songs for specific dances, etc. was great and easy to use. They made sure they got a feel for the genres of music we wanted played. They were thorough and contacted our venue to make sure they were prepared for all necessary for the big day!We had our wedding this past weekend, and it was great! So many of our guests complimented the music and DJ, everyone was out on the dance floor until the latest possible minute! Ben & Jen were great at keeping us on track, making sure we had enough time for each part of the wedding night, and made sure to make all announcements etc.The wedding night was a blast, and we couldn't have done it without them! Jeremy and myself are SO happy we chose Ampersand Events to DJ for our big day!! We'll definitely be recommending them to friends & family! More...

We loved having Ben & Jen DJ our wedding. They did a great job handling our ceremony (correct music, nice flow, amplified well) and were very professional. Our dance floor was hopping all night! Ben was great at keeping an upbeat tempo & worked requested music in well. The lighting they provided was also STUNNING (we had up lighting and a gorgeous ceiling light that brought beautiful dimension to our venue). I couldn't imagine our night with anyone else. I would highly recommend them to anyone! More...

Ben and Jenny did our wedding in June 2014 and did an incredible job.They brought and set up lighting to really set the mood around our dance floor and in the yard for our reception. Jen did a great job helping to tune the fine details at our reception, and worked closely with the site coordinator to make sure we had everything we need. They also did a great job in helping us plan the day, providing us with itinerary options, and taking the time to make sure we had song choices for all of the important moments.  They accommodated us in using the genres of music we typically enjoy and what type of feel we were going for for the event.As probably the best measure of the job that they did, our guests had a blast! Many remarked that ours was the best wedding that they had ever been to (seriously, from our 85 year old grandfather). Husbands, cousins, and boyfriends who are known to never dance, danced until their shirts were soaked through with sweat! Our guests loved the music selection, and Ben kept people dancing for hours. We are so glad to have chose them. They were a great company to work with.  They were courteous and professional, and helped to sort out many fine details that we really could not have done without them. More...

Ampersand Production is awesome!!  Ben dj'd my wedding a couple of weeks ago and provided uplighting and dance floor lighting, and it all went so well.  Ben was such a pleasure to work with.  From the first time I met Ben and his wife, Jen, 9 months prior to my wedding and throughout the months of wedding planning, Ben was very prompt with responding to all questions and emails of mine.  He is extremely friendly, professional, and reliable.  He stays organized and up to date by providing his clients with an online gig-builder that allows his clients to organize all wedding music and the order of how things will run.   He did an awesome job at my wedding by playing all the styles of music I asked for and keeping the energy fun!  I highly recommend Ampersand Production!!!

Ben from Ampersand Events was a true professional and his company handled all of our lighting for our wedding. Everything was set up on time and he even had a cool custom monogram of our names set up on the ground. I would highly recommend their services and I also felt they were reasonable priced compared to other companies.

Thank you,
Christina

Ampersand Events was wonderful to work with for the wedding and our welcome party for our guests prior to the wedding on August 2. Ampersand Events did all the lighting for my wedding at Hotel Laguna. They did an amazing job transforming the Laguna room and provided market lights on the balcony. On August 2, we had a welcome party for our guests and Ampersand Events was the DJ and provided market lights. Ampersand Events was extremely responsive to all my emails and gave me valuable advice for planning a wedding. They were also on time (or early) to every single meeting and event. Ampersand Events went above and beyond my expectations and I would recommend them to my friends. More...

This DJ was outstanding. I've been to a lot of wedding recently cause I'm that age and most have been kinda boring and people were more excited to sit around then to get up and dance and socialize but Ben and ampersand production did a great job keeping it lively fun and most importantly keeping people interested and involved. The lighting was beautiful the personal touches he was willing to go the extra mile for like names in lights and personalized music choice for everything. and he couldn't have been more friendly and willing to please. Thanks again ampersand!!!!!!! Highly recommend you guys. More...

We are very pleased with Ampersand Production services. The staff was very professional, personable and willing to go above and beyond from our first meeting. They asked us questions to better understand what we wanted for our special day. They took the time to drive to Temecula to see the layout of the room. They costumed design the lighting, music and monogram with our initials to make our special day more personable. Very well organized and coordinated. Upon our return from our honeymoon, we were pleasantly surprised to find lots of pictures they uploaded for us to share with friends and family. We definitely recommend Ampersand Production and look forward to using their services again. More...
