The dove represents peace of the deepest kind. It soothes and quiets our worried or troubled thoughts, enabling us to find renewal in the silence of the mind. … The dove’s roles as spirit messenger, maternal symbol and liaison impart an inner peace that helps us to go about our lives calmly and with purpose.
If you see a dove on your wedding day, a happy home is assured. Doves have long been a symbol for eternal peace.
The dove was singled out to represent romance because Greek mythology associated the small, white bird with Aphrodite, the goddess of love (known in Roman mythology as Venus). Aphrodite/Venus is often depicted with doves fluttering around her or resting on her hand.
The dove is commonly seen in artwork with Mary, as a symbol or care, devotion, purity and peace.
We welcome you to stop by and meet our doves! We release elegant white birds at all the events of your life. Weddings, Celebrations, Birthdays, Funerals… Please give us a call to schedule an appointment!
Releasing wedding doves during your ceremony is a romantic and symbolic gesture. You and your fiance could release a bridal pair; two doves which circle above you and then fly home, symbolizing the start of your life together.
If you like the idea of having symbolic wedding doves but don’t want to release them, consider having white fantail doves present at your reception. As the name implies they have beautiful fan shaped tail feathers, and do not fly very far so they will simply wander around amongst your guests, twirling occasionally as if they are dancing.
Ornamental bird cages accessorized with your wedding flowers make beautiful wedding decorations, and having a white dove inside makes them even more special. Bird cages come in various sizes and shapes and could be placed at the entrance to your ceremony or reception.
