Track Palin MarriedSarah Palin also confirmed the marriage of her son Track, 22, and Britta Hanson, 21, on Twitter. “Yes, they did & we couldn't be any more blessed!” she wrote Thursday night.
In a joint statement to People, the Hansons and Palins said: "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 Alaskan wilderness is not exactly suitable terrain for high heels and tuxedos, so the pair fulfilled their “something blue” requirement by saying “I do” in jeans. In a photo published by People, the pair are flanked by their casually attired parents and snow-covered mountains
They will celebrate with a bigger crowd this winter at Alaska's Alyeska Ski Resort.
Together since high school, Palin and Hanson continued to date when Palin, an Army reservist, was deployed in Iraq. She is a nursing student at the University of Alaska, and, according to the magazine, he intends to join her at the university when the commercial fishing season wraps.
