Abri, who wore a white linen suit, broke out his guitar at the celebration. The first meeting of the far-flung pair (Abri grew up in South Africa and Kristin was raised in Wisconsin) was definitely serendipitous. Last December, Kristin came across a CD from the band The Lemmings in the waiting room of her Los Angeles nutritionist's office and was instantly intrigued by their music—and by their cute vocalist Abri van Straten. She contacted the band online and asked to be put in touch with their vocalist.
The pair met for coffee a month later and instantly connected. Abri drank "pots of coffee" as their initial meeting stretched out to twelve hours. "And that was it," Kristin says. "We pretty much haven't been apart since."
