Sarah Palin’s son Track ties the knot with high school sweetheart

“Yes, they did & we couldn’t be any more blessed!” Sarah Palin tweeted.

The Palin’s and the Hanson’s released a joint statement: “Our families couldn’t be happier! These are two hard working, humble, active, studious young adults who grew up together. We’re tickled that after two decades of friendship we proudly witnessed their marriage, knowing their new life together will be blessed.”

Track, 22, and Britta, 21, tied the knot in a small ceremony in Hatcher Pass, Alaska. A larger wedding celebration will be held this winter at Alaska’s Alyeska Ski Resort.

“We look forward to wintertime when Britta and Track will have a formal celebration of their marriage at a ceremony at Alyeska Ski resort,” the Palin family added. “The couple chose December 16 for the event, when extended family and friends from the Lower 48 can travel North for a long ski weekend.”

Track is an Army reservist. He spent a year deployed in Iraq and he plans to take courses at the University of Alaska after the commercial fishing season. Britta is a nursing student at the University of Alaska and plans to work in a local hospital upon graduating.
