I don't know what a Campari Cocktail is, but if you started with a Champagne or other bubbly, it could continue on through the shrimp dish and salad. With the salmon, I'd either serve the same Chardonnay the salmon is being poached in or go with a lighter red, such as Beaujolais or Pinot Noir. I don't think the dessert would pair up with most sweet wines, with the exception of perhaps a cream sherry.

Or, perhaps just very good coffee?
Edited to add: An after dinner drink would be nice. Does she like brandy?
Edited AGAIN to say I think this is a very nice thing you are doing!
