Outer Banks Area Dove Releases for Funerals and Memorials

At funeral and memorial services, a dove release is a a beautiful way of expressing a final goodbye, of letting go. Doves provide a healing and peaceful tribute which helps to bring closure for family and friends.

No matter your beliefs, a white dove release gives a feeling of a peaceful departure by your loved one. The release may be accompanied by music (we'll bring speakers and download your requested song), and/ or by a poem that is read by a close family member or clergy/official.

In addition to the packages below, we can custom design a release in any combination to suit your needs.
