Want to get married in a cute, seaside resort town? Then Long Branch, NJ might be the place for you! When you get married in Long Branch, NJ you’ll be adding your story to the long history of the area, which includes the fact that President Grant and his family summered at their beachfront cottage in Long Branch from the first year of his presidency in 1869, and for most of the rest of Grant’s life. During this time, Long Branch came to be called the “summer capital”. The town was also host to at least 6 other Presidents over the next 50 years, and for many decades, during the summer the town would fill up with the creme de la creme of NYC society, including the Gould, Vanderbilt, Sloan, and Drexel families.
