The white rock dove originated in the cliffs of Ireland where they made their nests in the rocks. Man developed a fascination in the rock doves and brought them into captivity. Over generations the doves have been bred for their amazing ability to fly home from distances of up to 600 miles.
Caring for and releasing white doves is an ancient tradition in many parts of the world.
To the Chinese the white dove is a symbol of peace and long life.
To the ancient Egyptians the white dove was a symbol of quiet innocence.
To the early Greeks and Romans, doves were the symbol of love, devotion, and care of the family.
In these ancient cultures, the groom would give a pair of doves to his bride, symbolizing his promise to care for her and for the family.
In the Christian faith the white dove represents peace and unity with God. The white dove is the biblical symbol of the Holy Spirit.
Biblical references are listed on the "White Dove Symbolism" page.
Today the white rock dove brings love, joy, peace and hope to ones whom witness the release of these beautiful birds. Doves teach us that, regardless of external circumstances, peace is always within us. I myself have been enchanted by these magical birds which bring me a calming peace while caring for them.
It is not a wonder why the white rock dove is so cherished as an example of devotion and loyalty. Doves mate for life and are incredibly loyal to each other as they build their nest and raise their young. A perfect example for two individuals united in marriage. White doves at a wedding are symbolic of a couple's celebration of unity, devotion and love for one another. The release of these elegant birds at the end of a wedding will be one of the most talked about events of this special day.
A white dove release at a funeral, memorial, or church service will provide memories that will live on forever. The release of four white doves at a gravesite or memorial service identifies and honors the unity of the Holy Trinity and the spirit of the deceased love one. Each release is performed professionally with reverence and dignity.
White doves are also available for release at ceremonies, celebrations, sporting events, parades, holidays and other special occasions.
Doves may be released from baskets manually or by remote control.
