Beyond Grateful for Lina Bender- She brought our dream wedding to life!
We are extremely thankful for Lina! Her dedication, commitment, work ethic and enthusiasm is one of a kind. My wedding was magical, beyond anything I could have ever imagined. It was everything I dreamed of and Lina brought it to life.
From the moment I met Lina, I instantly connected with her and completely trusted her with planning my wedding. She listened to our ideas, she treated us with kindness and respect, she kept us updated with every detail from small to big, she was always available to answer any questions, she worked so hard to bring together the best dream team of vendors and she made us a priority. She was exceptional!
I met Lina through Wish Upon a Wedding. Wish Upon a Wedding is a non-profit organization that grants free weddings to couples who are facing terminal illnesses or who have gone through life altering health circumstances. Last year in 2019, I was diagnosed with brain and neck cancer. My husband proposed to me two days before my brain surgery. Unfortunately, due to all the medical expenses and my medical condition, we did not have the funds nor the time to plan our dream wedding. Wish Upon a Wedding contacted Lina and she immediately jumped on board to help plan our wedding. Without any hesitation, Lina immediately began working on our wedding, volunteering and dedicating so much of her time to make our special day possible.
Shortly after beginning our wedding planning, we were faced with a new challenge- The Covid Pandemic. Even during the pandemic and all the obstacles the wedding industry faced, Lina worked tirelessly for months contacting and putting together a dream team of vendors for our wedding. She was very organized, punctual, professional and adapted to any changes. She brought together the best vendors in South Florida and found us the most beautiful venue. The venue Lina Bender found us was absolutely beautiful, tropical, unique and everything we wanted. It exceeded our expectations!
The day of the wedding, Lina took care of every detail. She was there very early organizing and communicating with all the vendors and guests. I did not have to worry or stress out about anything. Thanks to Lina Bender, I was able to forget about my medical condition and enjoy every moment of my dream wedding. She made me feel so loved and I could not thank her enough for all her hard work. I was so overwhelmed with happiness and joy. Every detail of my wedding was perfect and I cherished every second of it.
I highly recommend Lina Bender for any and all events. She is the best wedding planner and I assure you that she will make your special day an unforgettable one.Sent on 11/12/2020

Lina - A Wish Come True
I had the privilege of having Lina Bender as my wedding planner. She is a true professional and a class act. She treated us like celebrities. Lina is the type of person that always goes above and beyond her job description. From the very beginning of working together in planning my wedding, she was so attentive and a great collaborator. She is a a people person and a problem solver. You can feel that she loves her work, and is motivated to make your special day even more special. Lina always put our wants and needs before convenience. She was always available day or night and would always keep us informed with the latest updates on her end, even during a pandemic. Even at the day of the event, Lina was the first and last one at the wedding venue, taking care of all the details. She also wasn’t afraid to get hands to work on the details in order to ensure that everything went smoothly. I can’t say enough about how great she is as a person and wedding planner. If you are considering choosing her as your wedding planner- do it. She was a wish come true.Sent on 11/09/2020
