Our solid white doves are actually homing pigeons that have been selectively bred over thousands of years. We release only trained white doves from solid white racing stock. They have a natural homing instinct which guides them to the safety of their loft. They are not the same pigeons you may see in city parks or doves you may see in a pet store. Please do not be confused and think that any white dove or pigeon can be released. Only homing pigeons that have been trained by a professional can safely be released.

Deposits that are placed for weddings will be refunded if cancelled 30 days in advance. Our dove’s safety is paramount. We cannot fly our doves in rain, snow, fog or high winds. If any of these acts of nature coincide with an event your deposit will be graciously refunded.
Inclement weather such as rain, snow, fog or high winds will prevent us from doing a release. Our doves need an appropriate amount of time to return to their loft before dusk. The destination of an event will determine the latest time of day they can be released. Our doves also cannot be released indoors. We cannot release our doves around loose predatory animals or if there are overhead power lines that may endanger our birds.
Deposits will be required for weddings in order to hold any date requested. Deposits will be refunded if cancellation is within 30 days of the scheduled event.
