BD Wong and Richert Schnorr were together for years before tying the knot, and their relationship exemplifies the power of love over everything else.
BD Wong of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," fame is happily married to his husband, Richard Schnorr. The two have a 22-year age difference, but it didn't stop them from falling in love.
The lovebirds met at a singles mixer organized by an online dating site in New York, in 2010. Schnorr, who lives and works in the Big Apple as the director of digital media at the New York Public Library, and Wong, stayed inseparable after they met.
Eight years after, they decided to get married in front of their family and friends.

Wong and Schnorr exchanged their vows in a ceremony that had the Manhattan skyline as their backdrop. The "M. Butterfly," star, wore a vintage black velvet three-piece suit gotten from the wardrobe of his "American Horror Story: Apocalypse," character, "Baldwin Pennypacker."
His groom wore a Hugo Boss dinner jacket, and they had about 250 people in attendance.
"It's really kinda the happiest day of [my] life"
The couple as a show of love and equality walked down the aisle at the same time, and in a later post shared by Schnorr on Instagram after the ceremony, he described it as the happiest day of his life.
He wrote alongside a photo of himself, and Wong,
"It's really kinda the happiest day of [my] life. Thanks to my family and friends for love and support and dance moves… thanks to [Wong] for loving me."
Family and friends equally shared tons of photos on social media, including one that showed the couple looking at their four-tier cake, which had a horse figurine on top.
The wedding had a lot of fanfare, but above all, it was a celebration of the love the two had for each other. Recently, Schnorr took to Instagram to celebrate his first wedding anniversary with Wong.
"Married this guy a year ago… couldn't be happier. Love you, @bdwong."
Wong sees every day spent with his husband as a blessing, and for them, love always wins.
