Track Palin, the eldest son of Sarah and Todd Palin, married his high school sweetheart, Britta Hanson.  The happy couple wed in a small ceremony in Hatcher Pass, Alaska.  

“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 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.

 Track, 22,  plans to study at the University of Alaska after the commercial fishing season. Britta, 21 is a nursing student at the University of Alaska.

Congratulations to the newlyweds!!
