Butterfly Release

The butterfly symbolizes new beginnings and rebirths. What better way to celebrate the beginning of a new life together than with the releasing of butterflies at your wedding. Every release is unique and special just as every wedding and every moment of our life is unique and special.

Releasing butterflies is a magical and unique experience that will put a smile on every guest's face. Their shimmering beauty and graceful flight are a wonder to young and old alike. Your "butterfly release" will inspire a memorable and unique experience to be cherished for a lifetime.

This part of the celebration is usually at the conclusion of their ceremony, after the pronouncement of marriage and often during the kiss. A butterfly release provides a memorable and photogenic conclusion. Their release is environmentally safe and helps in the restoration of the butterfly population.

Your guests or just the Bride, Groom, Bridesmaids and Groomsmen can participate in a butterfly release. The choice is yours. Often the minister will hand the Bride and Groom a beautiful white box containing the butterflies for the Bride and Groom to release as he reads some or all of the ceremony below.

Upon opening the lid of the box, the butterflies will flutter around and may even land on close-by objects including the Bride and Groom, providing unique photo opportunities.

Have you ever held a beautiful, live butterfly in the palm of your hand? Watch closely as it responds to the warmth of your skin and slowly open its magnificent wings.
