Why hire Chariots for Hire & Doves of Love?
Chariots for Hire® has been family owned and operated since 1986. Some people may remember our first endeavors at Waterside in downtown Norfolk (1986 - 1994) and Portsmouth (1994 - 1996). We closed our downtown operations to focus on special events and weddings. We moved from Chesapeake in 2000 and we now raise our horses on 50 acres out in western Suffolk. In 2007, we started Doves of Love. Doves of Love is a dove release used for weddings, special events and funerals. The birds we use are white Rock Doves. They are trained to return home. Visitors are always welcome to come and visit our horses or watch our birds fly free here on the farm.
What to Expect
We provide horse drawn carriages and White Dove releases throughout Hampton Roads and North East North Carolina. We also service other remote areas.
