Lisa Niemi, Patrick Swayze’s Widow, Remarries
Lisa Niemi tragically lost her husband Patrick Swayze to pancreatic cancer in September 2009.
Since then, Lisa has been trying to move on and find happiness, and it looks like she finally has!
According to PEOPLE, the 57-year-old actress tied the knot to jeweler Albert DePrisco on Sunday in Palm Beach, Florida.
Lisa’s rep confirmed that Albert proposed to Lisa on Christmas Eve, after they had been dating for a year and a half. While she didn’t know if she would ever marry again, Lisa told PEOPLE in 2010 that she would be open to getting remarried if she ever found the right person.
“I would love companionship love. Absolutely,” she said. “I hope I’m not one of these women who never want to have another relationship. But who knows, that’s another bridge I’ll cross when I come to it. I may get there and go, I don’t know. But I like to think that I can.”
How often does lighting strike twice? Albert, & I just married today. An incredible, wonderful, joyous day for both of us.

Apparently, she found “the one” and they were married during an intimate ceremony at the The Mar-a-Lago Club, surrounded by an approximate 50 guests. Lisa was dressed in a gown designed by Oscar de la Renta, and Albert wore a Ermenegildo Zegna jacket with custom made pants.
A couple days before the wedding, Lisa revealed to PEOPLE that she couldn’t be more excited about getting remarried. “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,” she said. “I cannot think of a bigger treat than that.”
She also revealed that she planned on having an amazing time at the reception. “I have some hilarious friends. I’m sure there will be some fun toasts!” she said. “Later on we’ll dance to everything from Michael Bublé and Steve Tyrell, to 70’s classics, to current hits, with a big dash of romance thrown in.”
