Two Turtle Doves

(click image to enlarge)

Turtle Doves are beautiful symbols of love, peace, purity, and fidelity. Doves choose one partner for life and make this commitment until death. The tale goes that if doves are seen on your wedding day, a happy home is assured. The only problem is that doves are now synonymous with tacky weddings- but no longer! I've found some very tasteful wedding doves and have vowed to make some modern dove wedding invitations in the very near future.

I simply adore the vintage cake topper, it's whimsical and charming. The candle holder is modern feeling and the dove cake topper is traditional but with a bright, thick ribbon it feels much more modern and elegant. The wire menu stand is a fun element to bring in, and you can find a local service to help you release doves, bringing a fun tradition into your wedding.
