We are Ben and Christina, a husband and wife team that had a vision to bring a unique gathering place to life based on our own experiences, and our love of hosting celebrations and memorable events. We had the best experience with our wedding venue, and want to pay that forward. Ben (an Ohio native) has also been in the event industry for over 10 years, and runs two successful businesses – Ben Elsass Photography and Photosphere (a gif photo booth). We have blended our business and creative minds to develop an experiential space that we hope give you and your guests a WOW experience!

Leading up to Mojave East, we have lived in Los Angeles, Chicago and put our roots down in Cincinnati – we love this city! We are travel bugs and love to incorporate experiences we’ve had into our professional and personal lives. Our energetic pup, Millie, also keeps us very busy!

We're Ben & Christina
