à deux: bespoke bridal paper
Now that the wedding is complete and we can breathe again, I have to take a moment to thank Kelli for the amazing work she produced for our ceremony. From the very first time we met to discuss what we were looking for, she did an amazing job guiding us through the process as we fumbled about, trying to navigate everything. She held our hands as we stood wide eyed, answering, "Uh, I'm not sure" to her questions.
Ultimately, she was able to coax some likes and dislikes out of us, and produced the most amazing pieces we could imagine. We must have gotten as many compliments on the invitation as we did on the reception.
We can't thank you enough, Kelli. You did an amazing job!
Where do I even begin? Kelli created the most stunning and unique invitation suite I could have ever imagined. She really set the tone for my entire wedding. The initial 3 concepts were equally amazing and so different. I didn't even know how I could choose just one. But she listened to what I loved about them all and created a final suite that blew me away. I also had her do our programs, escort cards, table numbers, and menus - that was the best investment! Everything looked fabulous and flowed so well. I credit all my design and decor to her!!! I even asked her to create my own set of stationery based off the wedding invites so I can use in the future!
Kelli and the a deux team are a joy to work with. Everything she created for us -- cards, programs, thank you notes, even a signature seal -- received kudos from all of our friends and family, but more importantly, captured exactly the spirit we wanted in our wedding. She is professional, responsive, creative, and made the entire paper process more fun than I ever thought it could be -- and her energy and creativity spilled over positively into other aspects of our wedding as well.
I ouldn't recommend working with her more highly.
Our Family and Friends were simply astounded by what they received (EXACTLY that reaction I wanted them to have!).
Kelli has a vision – sit back and let her run with it! – She will NOT disappoint!
A Deux handled every aspect and every piece of our printed needs for our wedding: Save the Date Cards and Envelopes, Wedding Invitations, RSVPs, Mailer Boxes, Addressing, Postage and Shipping, Table Numbers and Escort Cards for our Rehearsal dinner, Seating Chart, Table Names and Placecards/Menus for our wedding as well as our magnificent programs and finally, Thank You notes to match!
I approached Kelli with a wacky idea for our Save the Date (pictures of my Fiancé and I dressed as “Nerds” with fake braces to-boot), requesting that she help us create a not only hilarious card, but something that is still tasteful and all-the-while super-informative as we hoped family would “make a weekend” out of our destination wedding.
Kelli didn’t blink.
She came back with a design that hit the nail on the head for all the elements we wanted and Jeremy (my husband) and I not only laughed out loud, but we were beaming as we were so proud of what we had created to send to our nearest and dearest.
They were equally as pleased and the calls, texts, emails, Facebook posts – you name it – came rolling in with rave reviews!
When it came time for “the big show” – Kelly simply pulled from our conversations. What I had envisioned “my day” to be. She knew I wanted pastels, elegance, florals, classic – but not antique; something “signature.”
She ran with it and approached me with a design that filled me with DELIGHT.
She may kill me for describing her as a “mind-reader” online – but for me – she did exactly that. She gathered the elements I had laid down, pictured what those would entail, and put them in motion into a package that I could never have created myself.
- She made my dream wedding theme a tangible reality -
Beyond the sketches – she takes her perfectionism to new level.
EVERYTHING is crisp.
NOTHING is ever-so-slightly-askew.
She handed me a prototype that was so professionally done and SO on-point for what I had requested that I nearly fell over.
It pains me thinking of what Kelli must put herself through so that she doesn’t have to compromise with the high-level of integrity she expects her work to portray.
Kelli works tirelessly to get it right and provide what you request.
Hire her and take pride in yourself that you have made the best decision for your wedding printing needs…. (and feel free to smile and pat yourself on the back that your wedding invitations will be far superior to all of your friends).
Truely a one of a kind! I received many compliments on my invitations. I received my invitations in a short amount of time. Being a busy bride, I felt like a deaux really took care of me and made me feel confident with my choices.
To say that A Deux exceeded our expectations for our wedding invitation and associated stationary is a SERIOUS UNDERSTATEMENT. When we approached A Deux, we requested a beautiful and unique wedding invitation. When the Creative Director Kelli Parker finished our consult, we emerged with an entire brand for our wedding and timeless keepsakes that we will cherish and pass through our family for generations. She took time to listen to our vision for the wedding. She was interested in who we were and how our lives should play in the design. When she presented our original concept we were dumbstruck. It was a very emotional experience.
When we sent out our wedding invitations, the reactions were incredible. Everyone was excited to receive an invitation and felt very special. Our original A Deux invitations made our wedding an instant "event." We received phone calls and reports that a few people cried when they opened our invitation box.
The invitations were made more special by the portfolio of custom accessories that were added to enhance our event: rehearsal dinner invites, custom table numbers with our theme and finishing stationary for thank you cards for our wedding gifts.
If you want an unparalleled experience in bridal paper and a piece of art that you will cherish for the rest of your life, schedule time with A Deux today.
To say our wedding invitations exceed our expectations would be an understatement. They were harmonic balance of classic wedding elegance with a modern edge and sophistication. In a word … perfect.

Rarely do you get to experience true, ultra high-end, one-of-a-kind art in paper form. I first received an invitation designed by à deux several years ago and was immediately struck by its beauty and elegance. Since then I have had the pleasure of seeing many of à deux's amazing work. Kelli Parker's creative vision and exacting attention to detail is unparallel. Every project à deux creates has soul and energy jumping off the page. They instantly give one a sense of the couple and their wedding using the best materials in a way you have never even imagined.
