Planning your wedding? Make it a grand event!

The Grand Bank – Ashley, PA

Embark on the marital adventure of a lifetime and step back in time for a wedding that truly will be a one-of-a-kind experience—right in Northeast PA’s newest wedding and events venue, The Grand Bank.

“In my dreams!” you say. Well, maybe; but as owner Ashlee Martinelli knows firsthand, dreams do come true. “I began searching for a space about two years ago, and nothing quite fit, until I found the bank. I stepped inside, and at that moment, I just knew. The place was everything—absolutely GRAND,” she affirms. Together with her husband, Scot, Ashlee began to convert and restore the 1920’s-style structure, watching in awe as her vision came to life—a dream crafted by lots of hard work, persistence, and patience.

Historic building The Grand Bank

With the new venue space, Ashlee had a brick-and-mortar home for Every Little Thing, LLC, (“ELT”) her event planning, coordination, design, and styling company. She ‘married’ her two businesses by including the ‘Essentials Package’ (twelve-month wedding planning assistance with a personal Lead Planner for Grand Bank couples), giving them an experience like none other.  The principal motivations behind the lavish setting and the services a of Every Little Thing are two-fold: (1) the happiness quotient the union of feelings that produce joy, without the angst and stress of preparation, and (2) detail-orientation—the fine details—of which many couples are unaware (e.g., keeping to a predetermined timeline of events, knowing when to cut the cake, and sensing when the toasts go too long—among other things that can scramble your brain and prevent you from enjoying the day).

From Day 1 to Day-of, Ashlee and her exceptional team ensure that couples compartmentalize the tasks at hand, giving them the best possible planning and Day-of experience, all in a historic setting with modern, state-of-the-art amenities. Managing the details in partnership with an expert who cares is key. ELT breaks down the large to-do list into smaller pieces and tackles each task in three-month blocks. This allows couples to focus on important tasks as needed, rather than all at once, giving them time for personal care and relaxation in the weeks leading up to the big day.

For engaged couples searching for their wedding venue, Ashlee advises them to look and book now! Time is of the essence, and popular dates book far in advance—quickly.

For the ultimate experience in venue choice and wedding preparation, schedule a visit to sit down with Ashlee and discuss options, available dates, and the special details of your GRAND event. Begin by planning from start to finish with an unparalleled personalized touch.
