Patrick Swayze and Lisa Niemi Renew Wedding Vows

Patrick Swayze and Lisa NiemiPatrick Swayze and his wife of 33 years, Lisa Niemi , recently renewed their wedding vows. The actor, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year, gave his first interview since the illness was discovered. He told Barbara Walters that his second wedding was one of the happiest days of his life. “We did it very Prince Charming and Snow White,” he says. “I rode in on a white stallion.”

The couple made a spur of the moment decision to hold the ceremony, but says it was well worth it. ”In four days we put it together,” Lisa explains. “We called some close people and it was like a fairy tale. It was so much better than the first time, because this time we knew what we were getting into.”

Although Patrick’s interview was full of laughter and tears, the vow renewals ended up being a joyous day in a very difficult year. ”After everything we have been through,” Lisa says, “It was one of the happiest days ever.”
