James Van Der Beek: Wedding was Wonderful!

Former Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek tied the knot with his pregnant girlfriend Kimberly Brook on Sunday (August 1).

“Best day of my life so far,” the 33-year-old actor tweeted. “The woman I love did me the honor of became [sic] my wife today… I look forward to earning her for the rest of my life.”

According to People, James and Kimberly married in a small and spiritual ceremony held in Tel Aviv, Israel – the country where they first met! James wore Armani while his bride wore a vintage gown by Shareen.

James and Kim are expecting their first baby together this fall. He recently reached a divorce settlement from wife of six years Heather McComb.

Congrats to the happy couple!!!

    That was quick. His divorce was just finalized in June. ♧

    I wonder if he invited Pacey & Joey ?

  • taxgirl

    James was at Katie’s wedding, but I doubt Katie and Tom would bother going to his. Josh and James have never really gotten along (this may have something to do with real life Joey…I mean Katie off camera relationships).
    Regardless, James seems like an okay guy and I wish them well.

  • who knew?

    James’ first wife was so much prettier than this chick. Well, good luck to them. There’s a child involved in this relationship so I hope that everything works out.

    this man has a very long face

  • offtheproperty

    I hope SHE doesn’t expect him to “earn” her every day. That sounds monotonous and inequitable. Actually I don’t care. Just be careful what you wish for.

  • commonsense

    That was an inconsiderate statement to make, I’m not saying he doesn’t have a right to feel the way he does, but it’s something he should say to his new wife or to friends and family. Putting it out in public seems a bit hurtful especially since he’s newly divorced. He should have given some thought to his ex.

  • Ryan

    The marriage institution today is such a joke. It amazes me how same-sex marriage opponents bash gays as being a threat to traditional marriage when so many opposite sex couples make a mockery of it.

  • Question

    @CanadaGirl: Agree. If they’re expecting their baby this fall, does that mean they’ve been together when James was still with his ex-wife?

  • Ruth

    They were married at the Kabbalah Centre in Tel-Aviv, Israel on Sunday. There were photos of them arriving in Israel plus to the ceremony itself.

    from Wikipedia:

    On August 1, 2010, Van Der Beek married Kimberly Brook in a small Jewish ceremony at the Kabbalah Center near Dizengoff Plaza in Tel Aviv, Israel.[13]

  • Corey

    very bad taste to say it’s the best day of his life so far if it’s his second wedding… that kind of thoughtless comments define a personality

  • Team Josh

    I do see James as being very Dawson-like and Josh being very Pacey-like(post season 1).
    Remember that look that “Dawson” would have on his face when he would be standing next to Joey with Pacey watching? That gloating.(I always felt a lot of reality behind those scenes as Josh and James really could not stand each other).
    Now he’s doing it to his ex-wife. They were married for like 6 years, and he just got involved with this little girl earlier this year.
    James needs to take a lesson from Josh.
    Regardless of Josh’s feelings about Tom and Katie, he’s ALWAYS taken the classy route; refusing to say anything for the past FIVE years other than he cares about it, but can’t discuss it.

    Amazing how all four main characters of that “little” WB show are considered newsworthy 7 years after it went of the air.
    JAMES is really the least newsworthy, but since the show was named after his character, I guess that buys him a place in showbiz history.
    Were it not for the Tom Cruise contract, I bet KATIE would have been the next to disappear.
    MICHELLE deserves respect because she is one of those people that does not seek out fame. She’s said that she is happy doing an independent film a year for whatever the pay. (and that appears to be true)
    Some people will label MIchelle as only being famous for having Heath’s child, but I disagree. She’s not the gold-digger that Katie is. 7 years ago my answer may have been different, but now I would definitely say I like and respect Michelle far more than Katie.
    JOSH JOSH JOSH…of course he’s my favorite. I think he’s great. Even if FRINGE ended and he did not get another high profile role (which I would not hope to be the case), he would still always work, whether in indy films, stage, or whatever. I think he still has a long acting career ahead of him, and hopefully some more great roles.

  • mare

    I agree. What a jerk. No sensitivity chip there. What comes around goes around.

  • sabrina

    Good for you James. She’s a hottie. Yum!

  • Dumbyankees

    @Team Josh:
    James has been WAY more classy about Katie since she’s with Tom than Josh. I am huge KH fan, believe me, this is true. James and Katie, still today, even talk every now and then. Josh has not been the nicest guy on the situation. I used to like him, not anymore.

  • ikju

    @Dumbyankees: Oh please, James hasn’t spoken to Katie in a long time, he said so himself on various talk shows. I know a lot of James fans like to think he and Katie have had contact over the last few years, but I just don’t think that’s the case at all. I’d request some quotes or otherwise if you insist that they are still in touch, but good luck with finding the evidence!

    I agree with Team Josh – Josh has been totally classy in regards to Katie – he doesn’t comment, has never said anything negative. Katie and Josh were once very close, she went to visit him in March 2005 at his play. Then she met Tom. She hasn’t spoken to Josh since. Sorry, but it’s a two way street. The blame for Katie not speaking to Josh, James or anyone really from the cast of DC, has to be firmly placed equally in both parties. If Katie wanted to talk to any of them, I’m sure she could. She has now been to at least 2 events (that we know of), where Josh has been at and hasn’t bothered. So why should Josh?

    On topic: Congrats to James!

    How exactly is Katie a golddigger? I mean while her career was never as big as Tom’s she did have other roles and was establishing herself. She had her own $$$. Its not as if she came from obscurity and was wifed up like Elin Nordgren yet nobody is labelling her a golddigger.

  • Kirk

    This tool probably said the same thing about his first wife.

  • Susan

    I don’t think you can compare the pre-TC relationship that Josh had with Katie to James’ relationship with Katie.
    1) Based on any interview where Josh was asked about Katie, it’s pretty clear that she ended the friendship.
    2) You might want to take a good look at Suri, because she definitely looks more like Josh than Tom.
    Go figure out the rest.

    @Question: I’m not sure when they separated, so it’s a possibility.
