Which makes news of her storybook wedding all the more poignant: Yesterday, Marie married her first husband, former Brigham Young basketball player Stephen Craig, 28 years after the couple first divorced. The date was chosen because it was the birthdays of both Marie's son Michael and her late mother, Olive. She wore the same dress that was worn at the original wedding, which is a small miracle in and of itself. Says brother Donnie, who Marie currently performs with in Las Vegas, "These two people are right for each other … My sister is so happy."
