Funeral & Memorial Doves

Funeral & Memorial Dove Release Services

  • A single white dove is released by a family member in a heart shaped basket, symbolizing the departed.
  • This is followed by a flock of about 30 white doves, symbolizing past ancestors guiding the departed back home to God.
  • A single white dove is displayed in a beautiful cage for pictures and memories of this day.
  • A "white feather" and poem is given to the family as a keepsake.

Symbolism of the "White Feather"

  Spiritually, a white feather is a gift offering and is seen as a sign from an angel or of a loved one who has passed on. You can find comfort in the knowledge they're watching over you and encouraging you to live your life in love, hope and peace. 


Symbolism and "Sign of the Dove"

The Symbolism of the Dove is to remind us to reconnect with the spiritual aspects of our lives.  The white dove is the symbol of our Holy Spirit guiding us into a better relationship of harmony, peace and unconditional love by  letting go of the stress and tensions of life.

White Dove Release Funeral & Memorial Poems

The Final Flight

 Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free,
I’m following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard his call,
I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I’ve found that peace at the end of the day. If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah, yes, these things too I will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My Life’s been full, I savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one’ touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.

Little Dove

On the wings of this white dove
I’ll set your spirit free.
Up into the big deep sky,
to heaven, where you’ll be.
I know God has a plan for us,
he wants us by his side.
But it is hard for us to understand
when we are left behind.
Little dove, help lift our hearts
as we watch you go,
God is there if we just ask,
because He loves us so.

Carry Me Home

My loved ones do not cry
And worry for me
For like the dove
I have been set free.
God has called me
To my mansion on high
Just there among the clouds
In the deep blue sky.
I have no pain
No suffering to do
I have been called home
And I know you will too.
So beat hard and fast
Little wings off white and carry me home
Before the night.

A Hopi Prayer


 Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint in the snow.
I am the sunlight on the ripened grain.
I am the autumn's gentle rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush.
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there,
I did not die.

With the Rustle of Wings 

With the rustle of wings I’ll take your memories along As I soar up to the heavens From where they just played that song.

Just part your hands open As you feel my beating heart. My soul is alive as I Now depart.   

With the rustle of wings, I’ll enter the pearly gates. I’ll be with family from long ago and For you I will wait.   

Always keep this feather close As a reminder of my souls release And in every whisper of the wind you’ll hear the rustle of my wings.

Wedding Doves

Wedding and Reception Doves for the Bride and Groom

A "pair" of white doves symbolize your commitment to each other, the love and hope you share and the faith and fidelity you promise to each other. Doves commit and remain true for life!

The Legend of the Doves:

Once the Lord of Heaven chose two doves, both young and fair and told them of a very special journey they would share. "Go now upon the earth and seek two hearts where you may dwell, and there I shall surely come and make my home with you as well. We'll join the two and make them one. A Husband and a Wife, my Spirit will endow their love with everlasting life." Today the Doves still bring the sacred promise from above, to those whose hearts are open to the miracle of unconditional love!  

The Wedding Dove Release

  • Imagine, following the ceremony, or at the reception, the wedding couple release a pair of snow white doves from a "heart shaped" basket.
  • Then a flock of 30 white doves are released from a location among your guests; symbolizing their love and support for your union.  They rise to unite with the two white doves that were previously released and they all fly off together in a awe-inspiring display.
  • One or two "Dove Display's" can also set up with a beautiful pair of White Doves in each display to greet you guests. 

The Beauty of White Doves

  It will be a memory you will never forget.

Baptismal Doves

  • For many people, one’s baptism is the most important day of his or her life. 
  • Those who attend the ceremony are reminded of the symbolism of the dove at Christ’s baptism, representing the Holy Spirit and Gods acceptance of this ordinance in our lives and the peace the dove offers throughout our lives when the covenant of baptism is kept. 
  • The freedom one feels when choosing the right is joyous and the symbolism of the doves’ flight expresses this joy!  
  • A "Dove Display" with a single dove  can be set up to further symbolise this special occation and for pictures and memories for the family.

White Dove Release Policy

White Dove Release Weather Must Be Good

  • We will return deposits for acts of God prior to our arriving at the location.
  • We will NOT release birds INDOORS. 
  • We will NOT release birds AT NIGHT. 
  • We will NOT release birds in INCLEMENT WEATHER. We might be able to release birds in light rain showers, at our discretion, but we will not release birds in lighting storms, downpours, fog or snow storms.
  • Types of birds used to release are called "Rock Doves:" see Wikipedia link.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Release_dove We will release only well trained, well cared for white racing pigeon stock, also known as homing pigeons, which have been raised and trained to return home to their loft, and which are banded with seamless, permanent identification bands.     

We are professionals

  • We will ensure that appropriate attire is worn for all events, and that the release coordinator is 100% reliable and on time.  
  •  We will ensure that EVERY event has at least one knowledgeable release coordinator present.
  • We will NOT drop off, allow pick up or ship birds by mail for self-release. 
  • We will NOT release birds beyond the range which they are able to safely fly home from. 

White Dove Release Birds

  • Our birds are descendants of the "Rock Dove," which is the "Adam & Eve" (symbolically speaking) of all the pigeon breeds known today.  We call them "Racing Homers," or "Homing Pigeons," but they are technically "Rock Doves."  
  • They are trained and "freely" return home to their loft from hundreds of miles away.  
  • They are watered and fed every day, which includes clean water (sometimes medicated) and given vitamins and minerals and fed a high quality pigeon feed and grit.  
  • The health of our birds is very important to the health of the loft and in keeping the birds healthy; they are treated yearly for several kinds of common diseases that can affect the birds.  We take great care in handling the birds and not overcrowding them, which creates stress and sickness.  Their loft is there safe place of residence.
