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.


Ben and Jen are the best! They know exactly what they are doing and it is one less thing you have to worry about when planning your wedding. Our day was perfect and they played a huge role in that. They are professional and help you with your ideas. They also have lighting options for your venue which add a beautiful touch. We highly recommend them!


We just had Ben do our wedding a few days ago and honestly we could not have been happier with our experience. He was so professional and helped us along every step of the process. All of our guests had so much fun and we have Ben to thank! If you need a wedding DJ, he is your man!


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!

We are Jen & Ben, owners of Ampersand Events. We've been working in the event production business since high school, over 20 years ago... I'm not sure if that makes us old, but we're definitely very experienced at this point.

We want to be on your team and support your vision while offering up our expertise to make your event better than you could have ever imagined. You can count on us to keep you in the loop and your vision on track.

We understand the importance of being able to share your special moment with the ones you love most. Let our creativity, experience, and ability to "take care of business," simplify the process of creating the perfect event!


Have you been looking for a unique venue and outstanding vendors, but not finding what you're looking for? Our years of experience in the wedding and event industry have brought us together with the best event partners in Orange County and beyond. Even if you don't book us, you should check out these people and places.


We've been friends with Colette's Catering & Events for several years now. Consistently blown away by the level of service and the quality of food they bring to the table. You need to check them out; Colette's Catering is simply outstanding.





Few locations in your life will ever be as important as your wedding venue. Picking a place with lasting character and flexible layout options will allow your personality and ideas to shine. We adore the Ebell Club of Santa Ana for its aesthetic and custom options.



Unique & Memorable
