Winged Occasions has provided beautiful white dove releases for almost a quarter-century in the Metro Detroit area. This small family business began when Joan sprinkled a little creativity onto Lynn’s already beloved hobby of racing homing pigeons. Together, Lynn and Joan Luther spend many hours daily caring for and training these wonderful creatures, ensuring that each bird released will return home safely.
Lynn has raised and raced homing pigeons since he was nine years old. His vast knowledge and bird handling expertise keeps the birds happy, healthy, and in great shape to fly home from your event. Joan adds that extra special touch of love to each event. She is diligent in making sure your event is the best it possibly can be, from doing everything she can to match your event colors just right, to making sure your designated person knows how the cage opens before it’s time to let the birds free.
The birds are a family endeavor for the Luther’s and they enjoy sharing the beauty of these white birds with people celebrating a wide range of events. Some of the more popular events where these elegant birds are released include weddings, memorials, those celebrating a life just passed, as well as commercial events, anniversaries, and more.
Please know that we only use our own specialty trained white homing pigeons for release. We limit our release area to 50 miles from our home. Winged Occasions reserves the right to deny any release that may endanger our birds. The safety of our birds is of the utmost importance to us. We do not release them within an hour of darkness, to ensure our birds have enough time to return home. Should inclement weather arise and we cannot release the birds, you will receive a refund.
