‘Mama Grizzly’ officially has a new cub-in-law — her eldest son Track married his girlfriend Britta in a very intimate and laid back ceremony in Alaska.

Sorry ladies, Sarah Palin‘s son Track is officially a married man! People reports that Track, 22, and Britta Hanson, 21, said ‘I do’ in a very small ceremony in Hatcher Pass, Alaska but they plan to have a larger celebration this winter at Alaska’s Alyeska Ski Resort.Clad in a simple black sweater, sunglasses and tan pants, Sarah attended the ceremony along with her husband Todd Palin and new in-laws.

“Our families couldn’t be happier!” the Hansons and Palins tell People. “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.”

Britta and Track met in high school and have overcome all the odds against their relationship. Track was stationed overseas in Iraq during 2008 but it clearly only strengthened his relationship. Track is currently an Army Reservist and plans to enroll at the University of Alaska, where Britta is studying nursing.

“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,” the statement continues. “It’s a site we’ve all shared fun memories of skiing, snowboarding, hiking and snowmachining.”
