Kristen likes to joke that she and Chad have an arranged marriage – because they met through their fathers who are old work colleagues. Chad was first introduced to the McIntosh family on one of his first visits to Prince George. It wasn’t long after, that he and Kristen would see each other at different social events, and they quickly realized their love of sports, music, family, lake time and wine – would have them planning more and more time together.
Chad was raised on the North Shore of Vancouver and ended up moving to Prince George for his family business, only intending to stay a year!
There is a part of Kristen that suspects Chad fell in love with her pets before her… Kristen changed all that with her friendship which blossomed into love, her extended family, wonderful friends, and welcoming home full of pets. There is a part of Kristen that suspects Chad fell in love with her pets before her – and given that he’s allergic to animals, it’s a testament to his love!
Chad was drawn to “Kristen’s beauty, magnetic presence, and her dynamic personality that lights up an entire room!” Kristen was attracted to Chad’s confidence, work ethic, dancing skills, cooking abilities – and of course his memorizing blue eyes!
