White Dove Releases for Wedding Ceremonies

Doves select only one mate for life, which is the perfect symbolism of marriage. In fact, the releasing of pure white doves is an ancient ritual that symbolizes many of the elements of married life.


What better way to express these sentiments than with a pure white dove release during or after your wedding ceremony?


In the past, couples have opted for being showered with grains of rice as a wish for a large harvest or a new family.  Today a popular and classic alternative is the release of pure white doves.

Symbol of White Dove

Doves symbolize love, peace, happiness, and prosperity, and can be released outdoors as the couple leaves the church or during an outdoor ceremony. Our doves are pure white. This represents the bride and groom as they begin their life’s journey together in purity and with no regrets of their past.

The birds used in white dove releases are actually white homing pigeons, which are related to the dove species. Actual doves are too fragile to make the flight home and do not have a natural homing instinct to find their way home.


White homing pigeons are slightly larger, have the homing ability, and are stronger flyers. Even so, their performance is possible only after prolonged and precise training.


Our “doves” are also very clean, white, and healthy birds, and love to fly, showing off their skills.

Dove releases are available throughout the following Washington Areas: Seattle, Bellevue, Redmond, Issaquah, West Seattle, Mercer Island, Renton, Vashon Island, Ballard and more.
