Niemi and DePrisco were introduced by mutual friends and had been dating for over a year before DePrisco proposed on Christmas Eve, 2013. The couple was wed in front of an estimated 50 guests in Palm Beach, Fla.
“We wanted it fresh and happy,” Niemi told People of her wedding.
Niemi and DePrisco married surrounded by white roses and hydrangeas and a string quartet provided music for the festivities, according to 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 revealed before her wedding.
How often does lighting strike twice? Albert, & I just married today. An incredible, wonderful, joyous day for both of us.

In April, Niemi shared her fear of falling in love again after the loss of her husband in a blog post, writing that she was afraid of embracing a new love for fear that she would lose it.
“I’m not even in control of my own life. I truly saw that with my husband’s illness – his, and my life on this planet, was/is something that happens outside our rule. Love, too, is outside my rule,” Niemi wrote.
