Track Palin, 22 married his high school sweetheart Britta Hanson, 21, People Magazine reported tonight. The ceremony was held in Hatcher Pass.
“Our families couldn’t be happier!” the Hansons and Palins tell PEOPLE in a joint statement. “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.”
The statement as published in People Magazine continued:
“The couple will have a larger wedding celebration this winter at Alaska’s Alyeska Ski Resort “when extended family and friends from the Lower 48 can travel north for a long ski weekend,” says the statement from Sarah and Todd Palin and the Rev. Duane and Elizabeth Hanson….”The Hanson and Palin families are ecstatic and proud that Britta and Track married in one of our favorite spots in America, spectacular Hatcher Pass, Alaska,” says the statement. “It’s a site we’ve all shared fun memories of skiing, snowboarding, hiking and snowmachining.”
Track is an Army Reservist and spent a year in Iraq. Governor Palin presided over his deployment ceremony. Once the commercial fishing season concludes, he will study at the University of Alaska, where his wife is also studying to be a nurse.
The staff of US for Palin congratulates Track and Britta on their marriage.
