Plan Your Frederick Wedding in A Day
…and under one roof. Once Upon A Time Events will be holding a Bridal Fantasy Wedding planning event at the Hampton Inn on Buckeystown Pike on February 21st, from noon to 4 pm. With over 40 vendors, preferred vendors and sponsors, this promises to be a grand event for Frederick brides- and grooms-to-be.
I chatted with the owners of Once Upon A Time Events, Saprena & Greg about the event and about their business. Some of the best things about the bridal event:
- The Bridal Fantasy Wedding Show is right here in Frederick Md; no need to drag yourself down the Beltway, I-270 or across I-70.
- Prizes and drawings during the event. Including: A beautiful piece of jewelry donated by Tiffany & Co.
- 25 Brides-to-be will win a Wedding Gown Gift Certificate from St. Anthony Bridal and 40 Brides-to-be win a swag bag filled with treasure!
- Also, an item from Coach, and two Engagement Photo Shoots, and more.
- Keep up with continuing news on the Once Upon A Time Facebook Page
Once Upon A Time Events will also be holding a A Wedding Gala Bridal Show in Berkeley Springs, WV on April 24, Très Chic Wedding Affair Bridal Show in Winchester, VA on May 15, and An Enchanted Garden Wedding Bridal Show in Winchester, VA on October 9th.

Greg and Saprena Create Their Own Once Upon A Time Event
Saprena Levy and Greg Brown are the owners and business partners behind Once Upon A Time Events, LLC, having launched the business in 2015. Not only are they business partners, but they are engaged to be married themselves in five short months! In fact, planning their own wedding was part of the journey that brought them to this business themselves.
Greg is a U.S. Veteran with an IT background. Greg’s encounter with By His Wounds Ministries was life changing for Greg, after his tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraq left him dealing with P.T.S.D. The connection continues as the couple use their business to support and promote this meaningful non-profit organization. 100% of the attendee registration fees for the Wedding Show go to this non-profit organization that offers help and counseling to Veterans who suffer from P.T.S.D. What a great way to represent!
Saprena has been in the hospitality business for 30 years. It certainly sounds like a dynamic business combination, as well as a mixing of expertise and giftings. And the couple are certainly being met with success already. They are booked through 2017 with several events, including:
- Fitness and Healthy Living Expo
- Pampering Diva Expo
- Bar- and Bat-Mitzvas/Sweet 16/Quienceñera Events
So, if you’re planning to tie the knot in 2016-17, you’ll certainly want to visit the Bridal Fantasy Wedding Event next month! Best wishes to Saprena and Greg as they tie the knot in marriage and continue to build together in business! Take it from me, it’s great to be in business with your best friend!
