Melee Mobile Bar & Bites: Hilltop Elopement on St. Croix, USVI - Virgin Islands Wedding Photographer

Say hellooo to the newest wedding vendor and food truck on St. Croix - Melee Mobile Bar & Bites! I first learned about Melee Mobile on Facebook and started keeping track of the renovation process through their social media updates. The owners, Zak and Mary Orr, shipped the old horse trailer down from South Carolina and transformed it by hand into the cutest mobile bar and food truck. For now, they set up on the west end of the Christiansted bypass on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 5:30pm to 8:00pm. It's the best spot to order some food, grab one of their tasty drinks and enjoy the sunset with friends from the back of your tailgate. They use fresh ingredients from either their own garden or local farms, make homemade bread, and craft cocktails that infuse local fruits and flavors.

Melee Mobile is also available for private events and weddings, which is a huge gamechanger for the elopement and wedding industry on St. Croix. In my mind, this trailer is the perfect addition to have at your beach or vacation villa ceremony and reception. It's a fun background for photos, an easy way to serve your guests drinks and appetizers, and super low stress since Zak and Mary handle all of the details. In addition to drinks and snacks, they're working on adding full catering services for larger groups as well.

Once the trailer was up and running, I reached out to Zak and Mary about planning a styled elopement shoot and I was so happy that they were stoked about the idea! My sweet friends Eric and Ashlee threw on their wedding outfits from a few years ago and we headed out to the East End. Zak and Mary came prepared with chalkboard signs, an incredible charcuterie board, salad bar, Mutiny Island Vodka Cosmos, Leatherback Brewing Co. beers, and more. And I gathered some greenery and flowers from my yard and threw together a bouquet and macrame wrap for Ashlee.
