Actor James Van Der Beek returned to Israel for his wedding to KIMBERLY BROOK on Sunday (01Aug10) - because the couple began their romance in the country.
The former Dawson's Creek star, 33, exchanged vows with his model girlfriend, who is pregnant with the couple's first child, in an intimate ceremony in Tel Aviv.
And their choice of Israel as a location to tie the knot was poignant for the pair - it's where they began their courtship last year (09).
Van Der Beek's rep tells People.com the couple wed in "a small spiritual ceremony surrounded by a few close friends and teachers".
The newlyweds are expecting their baby in the autumn (10).
