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.

Ampersand Production is awesome!! Ben dj'd my wedding and provided uplighting and dance floor lighting for my wedding a couple of weeks ago, 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,

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.

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.

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.
