  14. 14. Leana & Ulrich Leana and Ulrich met two years ago at the furniture business of Leana’s family. Ulrich remembers that his phone – with a beautiful pho as screen saver taken by him on a hiking expedition – was lying on the counter. Leana spotted the picture on the phone and this becam a conversation topic on which, according to the couple, their whole relationship is based. The tale of the hiking expedition could not be told in such short time – which lead to coffee! One coffee became three or four, which lead to more stories of hiking, which in turn lead more coffee and later dinners as well!! Exactly a year after the couple met they spent an autumn evening in the Karoo. Just there they decided that from that time onwards they would do all their hiking together – with a ring on the left ring finger!!! They got married exactly a year after their engagement. “The search for the perfect wedding venue was quite short actually! We had a list of places to go to. Tramonto was at the top of the lis and none of the other venues could compare to what we saw first!!” “It was exactly what we were looking for! Our idea was to have an intimate small, weekend wedding and Tramonto fitted the requirement, especially with its gorgeous Honeymoon Suite and other accommodation on site! Wilma and her team was great in organising our perfect day. Not a single mistake slipped in (at least not to our knowledge). We were the perfectly happy and relaxed br and groom in 7th heaven!! Thank you to Tramonto for the wonderful memory of 13 March 2010. 14
