Interview with Jenna Ferguson and Sari Lindeman
How did you get your start in the business?
Jenna: After graduating from the College of St. Benedict/St. John’s University, I began as an intern at Bellagala winter 2010. I was hired on shortly after as a part-time Wedding Consultant, and slowly transitioned to a full-time Sales Coordinator. I also started doing Event Planning through Bellagala this past winter.
Sari: I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to be a Sales & Events intern at Bellagala following college. I was able to continue with the sales team after my internship as a full-time employee. It’s the perfect fit!
What is the most unique thing about you?
Sari: I studied in Japan during college and I am able to speak fluent Japanese!
What is your favorite childhood memory?
Jenna: I have many great memories of family trips to Puerto Rico, to visit my grandparents who were “snow birds” there. Oh, and Barbies. I played lots and lots with Barbies with my sister Kelli, as a kid…
What’s your favorite vacation spot?
Sari: Sitting on the dock at my family’s cabin on Lake Vermilion. The only things you see are boats, loons and water!
What is your most cherished possession?
Jenna: An inscribed rosary from my Nana that she had blessed in Rome, one for each of her 10 “grandbabies.” For the girls, it’s meant to be our “Something Old” when we get married… (hopefully someday soon)
What is your motto or favorite quote to live by?
Jenna: “Be happy for this moment, for this moment is your life.” I surround myself with positive, happy people who share this same belief! I’m also fond of, “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” So true.
What has been your favorite Wedding and why?
Sari: My brother’s wedding in Portland, Oregon was a blast to be a part of. It may have actually been the first wedding where I never left the dance floor! To have all of our family and closest friends make the trip out there made it all the more special. Plus the scenery was breathtaking!
What is your favorite color?
Jenna: This is ever-changing, and usually can be determined by the color of my nail polish. Currently, it’s a “Caliente Coral” by OPI. Mint is pretty too!
Sari: Coral! It has a pretty and romantic feminine base with a splash of modern flair.
