Outer Banks Dove Releases for Weddings

Providing Memorable White Dove Releases for the Wedding of Your Life

The traditional release of white doves is a beautiful and unique expression of your love as you are wed. Doves choose one mate for life and signify love, faithfulness, joy and hope. Make your special ceremony even more special with one of our white dove release packages. The beautiful white doves soar high and head home for their loft, representing the couple beginning their newly wedded lives together. We can help you choose a reading or a song to go along with the release.

Each release includes a practice session at our home, and an extra pair of birds for a staged shot after the ceremony, if desired!

Types of Releases:

  • 2 Dove Release: The couple holds the doves which are released together, or the doves are released from a heart-shaped basket. $199

  • 2 Doves + Flock of 15 Dove Release: The couple releases two birds by hand or from a basket, and then a flock of doves are released from one basket shortly afterward, representing friends and family supporting them on their journey. $299

  • 2 Doves + Flock of 30 Dove Release: The couple releases two birds by hand or from a basket, and then two flocks of doves are released from two baskets shortly afterward, representing friends and family supporting them on their journey. $399

  • Display: Choose an elegant cage to beautifully display two ring-neck doves during the ceremony (these are not for release). They can be decorated to coordinate with your colors and make a stunning addition to a chapel entrance. Available with any release package for an additional $99, or on its own for $149.

Travel fees may apply to areas more than 30 miles from the loft in Colington, Kill Devil Hills. Please email us for a quote!

Wedding Testimonials:

Paul & Rebecca:
Nobody whom attended our wedding could stop talking about how great it was, for the longest time. We still hear about the doves. It was the highlight of our wedding party. Thank you, so much!

Lynn & John:
Thank you for a wonderful wedding day.  We chose a reading from a list of your suggestions.  With that and the release of the doves, it completed the renewal of our wedding vows in a very special way.  Thank you for your kindness and help.   The visit to your home to practice the dove release was a highlight in our week.  The grandchildren (along with the adults!) truly enjoyed the unique experience of releasing your beautiful doves.  Thank you for the personal touch and incredible customer service.

Paolo and I will never forget the special moment that we shared when releasing the doves at the end of our wedding ceremony. Many of our friends and family members told us that it was their favorite part of the ceremony.
