DIRTY Dancing and Ghost star Patrick Swayze's widow has been remarried.

Lisa Niemi, who was married to the actor for 34 years before his death from pancreatic cancer in September 2009, tied the knot with jeweller Albert DePrisco in Palm Beach, Florida today.

The couple - who started dating two years ago and got engaged on Christmas Eve last December - exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony at The Mar-a-Lago Club in front of more than 50 guests.

The 'Beat Angel' actress, 57, told "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."

The bride wore a wedding gown designed by Oscar de la Renta and admitted she was looking forward to celebrating with her guests at their reception.

She said: "I have some hilarious friends. I'm sure there will be some fun toasts! 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."

Lisa previously admitted that she would like to find love again shortly after the first anniversary of 'Ghost' star Patrick's death.

She said: "I would love companionship love. Absolutely. 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."
