Jeanna Harvard and Jeff Wolfe

Eight years ago, Jeanna Harvard and Jeff Wolfe met at a work meeting when a mutual friend played matchmaker. After dating long distance between Kansas City and St. Louis, Missouri, for five years, the two took a romantic vacation to Paris, where Jeff popped the question in the Eiffel Tower’s Le Jules Verne restaurant.

On November 3, 2012, the couple exchanged vows on the waterfront at the LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort in Naples. Donning a lace Anne Barge dress, Jeanna walked down an aisle lined with mirrored planters and a hand-painted runner. She met Jeff under a softly draped cabana, which framed them in front of the blue sky and glittering ocean.

For the reception, guests went from seaside to under the sea in a ballroom at LaPlaya. The venue had been reinvented with bright blue lighting and a radiant all-white interior. A contemporary vinyl dance floor, translucent fabric wall coverings, clear chairs and cool white leather sofas completed the evening’s chic lounge look.
