Sarah Palin’s son Track Palin, 22, wed his highschool sweetheart Britta Hanson, 21, in a small ceremony in Hatcher Pass, Alaska, with their families present. The affair was strictly informal with everyone wearing jeans.
“Our families couldn’t be happier!” the Palin clan and Britta’s family, Rev. Duane and Elizabeth Hanson, said in a joint statement.
The happy couple has been dating since high school. Track is now an Army Reservist who served a year deployment in Iraq with Ft. Wainwright Stryker Brigade.
Track intends to attend the University of Alaska, when the commercial fishing season is over – Britta is currently a nursing student at the same University.
Britta and Track will have a larger wedding celebration this winter at Alaska’s Alvesak Ski Resort “when extended family and friends from the Lower 48 can travel north for a long ski weekend,” the families told media.
If they are having a larger celebration this winter then what was the hurry to wed now?
