The Atlantic Highlands is a small and historic town in Monmouth County like none other around. While one moment you are surrounded by many farm fields of Central New Jersey, the next you suddenly find yourself climbing up steep hills that eventually lead to the highest point of the entire Atlantic Coast south of Maine. The town is surrounded on nearly every side by Navesink River, Raritan Rivers, and the Atlantic Ocean forming it’s natural boundaries while both Manhattan and Long Island are both clearly visible in the distance on a clear day. We began the photography for this wedding on New Years Day at the home of the couple as they prepared to begin their new lives together. Upstairs, the bride was done with hair and makeup and into her dress in no time as both mom and bridesmaids had to work together improvise to tie the perfect bow on the back. Meanwhile downstairs, the groomsmen shined shoes, clipped in cuff-links, and spent equally as long perfecting the knots of their bowties.
