Patrick Swayze's wedding

Patrick Swayze died yesterday, so I thought I look up his marital situation. I read that he was married, but I didn't realize how married he was! Got your tissues ready?

Patrick Swayze and Lisa Niemi married when they were just 22 and 19 years old. They were never previously married, and they never divorced. The two met when Lisa was taking dance classes under Patrick's mother; she was only 16.

Patrick Swayze and Lisa Niemi were married on June 12, 1975. He wore a blue suit and she wore a simple white dress. They look adorable and so young! Cute!

I think her look is pretty elegant and timeless. He looks cute, and his hair is so very seventies!

The two stayed together throughout his battle with alcohol and drugs, and through her two miscarriages. They never had any children.

In 2008, after Patrick's cancer diagnosis, the two renewed their vows in a fairytale ceremony on their ranch in New Mexico.

"We did it very Prince Charming and Snow White," said Patrick who rode to the ceremony on a white stallion. "It was like a fairytale," added Lisa. "One of the happiest days ever."

I love reading stories about people that stay together - they're never shy to say how hard it is, but they always seem so happy.

Patrick Swayze died September 14, 2009 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. The two were married for 34 years.
