She doesn’t own a television, but tonight, Woodstock wedding and event planner Sabrina Brown will be on one.

Brown has a guest spot on Hotel Impossible, a Travel Channel show airing tonight at 10. Brown was asked by show host Anthony Melchiorri to put together a wedding in three days to help the owners of the Vermont Inn, a struggling bed and breakfast in Mendon.

Brown, the co-founder of Interplay Jazz and former executive director at Pentangle, has been planning weddings and events for more than 30 years, but four years ago, she turned a hobby into a full-time job by starting Woodstock Productions. The show’s producers found Brown with an Internet search.

As a working mother of five, Brown never had time to watch TV, so she hasn’t owned one since 1994.

“I thought, ‘Jeez, I should probably go find a TV and watch this before I agree to it,’” Brown said.

Brown went over to a friend’s house. Then she signed up.

Brown has planned birthday parties and memorial services on short notice, but never weddings. Usually, she has at least three months. After the wedding, Melchiorri complimented Brown, she said.

None of the local vendors who pitched in for the wedding, including Brown, were paid for their work.

“It was awesome,” Brown said. “I did it for the fun of it — because I love weddings and liked the challenge of it.”
