About Blue Linden

The Team

Blue Linden Weddings & Events got its start in 2013, with owner Wanda Bonner realizing she had a passion for wedding planning and all the craziness that comes along with it. Wanda is masterfully organized and focused, but loves having fun with clients and forming bonds that last well beyond the grand exit. In addition, Wanda's husband served for 30 years in the military and she understands the challenges that military couples face everyday from short notice deployments, to unknown schedules, to moving out of state. Therefore she has a special place for engaged military couples. Clients describe her as “responsive and genuine with a great sense of humor” and praise her ability to keep their stress levels at a minimum.

In 2015 Kaitlin Amanatullah (then it was Kaitlin Mulligan) was in the midst of planning her own wedding, and realized she never wanted the experience to end. She was brought on as an intern and hired as Wanda’s assistant in 2016. She is now an assistant wedding planner with Blue Linden Wedding & Events.

In 2017 Tina was employed by a catering company and worked a few events with Blue Linden. She realized that she wanted to be more involved in the planning process and was also brought on as an intern for the 2017 season. Things worked out brilliantly and Tina became an "official" member of the team in 2018.

Together, the three make up a team that is equal parts driven and fun-loving, with the happiness of their couples always coming first.

  • I believe that life is not complete without a four-legged companion.
  • I believe that if you can’t rock stilettos … don’t wear them!
  • I believe that there’s nothing better than the sound of a child’s belly laugh, a strong lingering hug from a loved one, the smell of freshly brewed coffee and a top shelf margarita.
  • I believe that life is short so trust your gut and live life to the fullest!
  • I believe that your wedding day should be everything you want, not what others expect.
