Well, this is just lovely news.
Lisa Niemi, who lost her beloved husband actor Patrick Swayze four years ago to pancreatic cancer, has just remarried. When she lost her childhood sweetheart, Swayze, she wrote in her book “Worth Fighting For: Love, Loss and Moving Forward,” that she hoped she might find love again.
“I would love companionship,” she said. “Absolutely. I hope I’m not one of these women who never want to have another relationship.”
And that’s exactly what she’s done – found love.
The 57-year-old actor/dancer walked down the aisle towards jeweller Albert Deprisco on Palm Beach in Florida.
Just before her beachy wedding, Niemi told People: “What I most look forward to on my wedding day is walking up, standing at our altar, and looking into his most incredible, twinkling eyes. I cannot think of a bigger treat than that.”
Niemi and DePrisco have been dating a year and a half, engaged since December.
They got hitched in front of just 50 close guests. The bride wore Oscar de la Renta and walked the aisle to the sound of her nephew and his wife – both concert violinists – playing Mozart.
Sounds like a heavenly celebration of love for a woman who truly deserves it.
