Kimberley and Michael in Wainscott, NY

After becoming engaged at a party at the opening of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa, artists Michael Beneville and Kimberly Wilkinson received an extraordinary gift: Their friend Colin Cowie (left), who had masterminded the Winfrey party, volunteered to serve as wedding planner and emcee. “He ended up throwing us the wedding of our dreams,” says Kimberly.
