It's rare to say this about a tennis star, but Novak Djokovic's Wimbledon title wasn't the best thing about his July. He married last week to much fanfare (at a distance), with the wedding party avoiding cameras aside from those they let in. Hello! magazine got the exclusive on that, and photos from its Serbian edition appeared online today:

Djokovic termed it all "a perfect moment," and bride Jelena Ristic described it as "a blur." Ristic wore a gown by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, and Djokovic donned a trim, gray-toned suit. The wedding reception had a decidedly purple tint to it, and their respective families look gorgeous in all the photos, shot at a resort on the island of Sveti Stefan in Montenegro.

The couple and friends had previously been photographed arriving for week-of events at the resort on the heels of the groom's Wimbledon championship claimed at the expense of rival Roger Federer. Attendees included fellow pros Viktor Troicki (soon returning from a one-year ban from the ATP World Tour), Janko Tipsarevic, and Nenad Zimonjic.

What do you think of the images from the Djokovic celebration? The Spin sees everyone and everything all aglow.
