We charge $280.00 to release approximately 24 birds (weddings). We charge $180.00 to release a dozen birds (funerals).
After getting their bearings (and God's guidance), they fly directly back to our house, usually arriving home before we return.
The birds' ability to find their way is one of God's miracles! They are fortunate that God did not ask me to try to teach them to get home or to fly. (Not only would they be lost but also walking)!
Lovebirds has performed over 6000 ceremonies in the Birmingham area during the past 20 years!
We will not put the well being of the birds at risk by forcing them to fly in heavy rain or at night! All the money will be refunded if we are rained out.
We try to limit the distance the birds must travel to approximately 30 miles. This includes all of Jefferson, North Shelby, and portions of adjoining counties.
For weddings I will send you two contracts. You return one of them along with a deposit of $140.00 (this leaves a balance of $140.00 due at the ceremony). I will notify you upon receipt to verify if the date is still available.
For funerals there is usually not time for sending contracts. We can make the arrangements for a white dove release with a quick call.
