Sarah Palin's son, Track Palin, recently married his high school sweetheart, Britta Hanson, in a small ceremony in Hatcher Pass, Alaska.
Track, 22, is an Army Reservist who spent a year deployed in Iraq. He plans to study at the University of Alaska, where Britta, 21, is a nursing student.
The couple will have a larger wedding this winter at Alaska's Alyeska Ski Resort for extended family and friends.
"Our families couldn't be happier," said a joint statement from the Palins and Hansons. "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."
