Traditionally doves signify love and fidelity as they choose one mate for life. White, specifically, is the universal color for peace.
Having a pair or flock of doves released at the end of your ceremony with a special blessing or reading is the perfect symbol of your new union and commitment to one another.
Please note the doves are never harmed and they fly back home after they are released. For your Outer Banks wedding the doves are provided by www.whendovesfly.com for an additional fee.
