forever friend: an editorial

From Alexandra Vonk “This shoot is unique and totally different from other wedding inspiration shoots because it’s about friendship. Friendships are so important on your wedding day and having your best friend at your side is a must. To commemorate this idea we designed a shoot around two best friends using a gorgeous setting, tropical fruits, and flowers.

From Susan Hyams – “Sometimes in life, you find a special friend, someone who makes you laugh until you can’t stop. Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world. Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it. This is forever friendship.

Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times. If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows. Your forever friend holds your hand and tells you that everything is going to be okay. And if you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not worry. You have a forever friend, and forever has no end.”
