MATTERS OF THE HEART COLLECTIONS 2022
I am delighted to announce the release of Erica Elizabeth Designs new wedding headpiece collections, Matters of the Heart. Named for those deeply held beliefs grounded in love, family, community, and caring, these are the core values that shape us, nourish us and sustain us throughout both happy and trying times.
Below are a few of my favorites.
Nothing conjures up a stronger matter of the heart than marriage, the eternal promise to love and cherish. While once a largely practical measure to ensure a woman’s future, patriarchal values were the bedrock of 19 century marriage, the foundation on which pioneers set out to build family, community and, indeed, a very nation.
Young brides left their families to follow new husbands into the unknown West, a vast wilderness of both promise and isolation. Tested by a life of hard work and frequent loneliness in harsh, untamed lands, these couples drove a young nation forward, sustained by love, family, and hope for a brighter future.
Women today continue to navigate marital expectations, with happiness and equality the aspiration for contemporary unions. The domestic front has been tested by months of lockdown and isolation, with the need for shared responsibility highlighted as never before. The pandemic has provided an opportunity for reflection on spousal roles and the need for respectful sharing.
After these long months of lockdown and isolation, it is wonderful to once again turn my gaze outward. As always, you special brides-to-be, so full of love and promise, remain my inspiration.
