Since the beginning of man the wedding doves have been a symbol of love, peace, purity and faithfulness. Doves choose one partner for life. The release of a pair of white doves at a wedding symbolizes the joining of two spirits in harmony; they represent the love and commitment that you have given to one another.
Our Standard Wedding Release Package is the ideal enhancement to makes yours a perfect wedding. We release 20 perfect wedding dress white doves on your cue during the ceremony or at your wedding reception, and we have 2 doves for the bride and groom to release from a heart shaped wicker basket. I vow to arrive on time, dressed appropriately, and release the doves on your cue. I can attend the wedding rehearsal if requested, and I work with your photographer and videographer to ensure the release is captured for memories that last a lifetime.
Assisted release means I will professionally release the doves from a carrier(s). I recommend that a family member, close friend or officiant announce the pending wedding dove release with a narrative similar to the following. Please note I do not offer to recite this as part of your ceremony, as it is much more meaningful when it comes from someone special.
“Throughout time white doves have been recognized as a symbol of love, peace, purity, and faithfulness. Doves choose one partner for life, and it is said that if doves are seen on your wedding day, a long and happy marriage is assured. These doves released here today represent the love and commitment [the name of the bride] and [the name of the groom] have given to one another. From this day on, whenever you see a dove, may you be reminded of this moment.”
