The oldest of the Palins, and proud owner of a ridiculous name, Track Palin, married his high school sweetheart!
Track married Britta Hanson, who is 21, in what they're calling an "intimate ceremony" in Hatcher Pass, Alaska.
In the middle of the week!
Though it is not entirely uncommon for people to have impromptu and secret weddings during the middle of the week, we feel like most of those cases have very good, probably irreversible reasons as to why they're doing it. We'll go ahead and let you draw your own conclusions from our vibes
She's just a nursing student in love with an army reservist, and here's the family's statement:
"Our families couldn't be happier! 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.
They 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.
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. It's a site we've all shared fun memories of skiing, snowboarding, hiking and snowmachining."
Well, regardless of the motives, we hope the main one was and always will be love! Because marriage should always first and foremost be between love and love!
We DO extend our congratulations to Track and Britta! Here's to hoping your marriage is long and filled with happiness!
