In September of 2011, every girl’s dream was fulfilled as Claire Rosen’s Montclair based studio was packed with elegant wedding dresses, tables of delicate jewelry and glitter, and the excitement of a crew.
As Kim Harrison (www.makeuppages.com) transformed the models; Jessica from MSA Models and Devon from Colby Model Management, into beautiful blushing brides, stylist and FIT student Gianni Inglese assembled looks for them from various wedding dresses designed by Ivy & Aster (www.ivyandaster.com) lent by Lovely, (www.lovelybride.com) a New York based bridal boutique.
All hands were busy to help Claire capture the simplicity and elegance of a bride blended with the taste of the fashion world. The black and white checkered floor tiles and a star painted backdrop were hand made by Claire and Tom Pisano with vintage paper fans provided by Parcel (www.shopparcel.com) of Montclair.
Jessica and Devon stepped on set, dressed in white with edgy black and white accessories, the light hit their picture perfect faces and after numerous looks, the goal was accomplished. Wedding dresses and the moody sophistication of fashion are rarely seen together and Claire Rosen successfully combines the two polar opposites to create an out-of-the-ordinary bridal look.
