Dawson Leery's wedding photos in this week's Life & Style

Actor James Van Der Beek, famous as Dawson Leery in the quintessential late '90s teen melodrama, has shared his wedding photos and details in the latest issue of Life & Style magazine.

Van Der Beek married his pregnant girlfriend, Kimberly Brook, in a Kabbalah ceremony on August 1st in Tel Aviv, Israel - near Jaffa where the couple first met.

Of the moment the couple first met, Van Der Beek says, “I was telling my friend and teacher Shalom [who was at the wedding] that after everything I’d been through, I finally felt ready for a relationship — someone I could grow old with, change with…a soul mate. I was midsentence when, from behind us, a female voice interrupted. At first I was annoyed — who had the nerve to butt in on such an important revelation? Then I turned around and saw her.”

The actor, who was previously married to actress Heather McComb, told the mag, “We looked at this wedding as a sacred union of our souls. For us, there was tremendous freedom in not having to worry about the food getting cold or the DJ playing ‘YMCA’ again!”

The newlyweds' first child, a daughter, is due in October.
