Love was definitely in the air Saturday night as actress Audra McDonald wed her longtime love, Will Swenson, who is also an actor.

According to, the couple, who has been together since 2007, were married at their home in Croton-on-Hudson, New York.  The background was likely picturesque; Croton-on-Hudson is a small town in Westchester County that dons beautiful views from almost any angle.  While the details have mostly remained private (Audra’s always been pretty quiet about her relationships), we do know the bride wore a dress by Esosa.

This will be the second marriage for both and they each have children with their exes.  Audra has an 11 year old daughter named Zoe while Will has two sons, 11 year old Bridger and 8 year old Sawyer. The Mr. and Mrs. Swenson call the kids their “wee posse of three.”

The couple planned this wedding in the midst of both of them being very busy with their roles on Broadway. Audra left television show Private Practice last year to move back to New York to be with her daughter full-time and ended up landing the role of Bess in the revival of Porgy and Bess.  For his part, Will was in Priscilla: Queen of the Damned where he played a drag queen – yes, honey – named Tick. His next role is a little less dramatic; he’s in a play called Murder Ballad opening in November.

Congrats to the happy couple!
