Jelena Ristic is now officially Mrs. Jelena Djokovic, wife of the the number one professional men's tennis player in the world Novak Djokovic, her childhood sweetheart. They married in Montenegro, a site which has special meaning to her and her husband.
Pictures of the beautiful bride and her husband were released to the world through HELLO! magazine and she looked stunning in a gorgeous bespoke gown by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. The stunning dress featured a sweetheart neckline and intricate lace detailing around the bodice and hem. The wedding reminded fans of a fairytale come true and when one considers how they started as student and athlete both without much funds it is a very accurate statement.
She met her future husband in high school and while they are enjoying life now and soon will be adding a third person to their family in the form of a son as she is six months pregnant life was not always easy nor glamorous.
At the beginning he was a very young tennis player with no money for trips to see her as she was a student studying luxury brand management at Milan's prestigious Bocconi University where she paid her way with a series of far jobs which were not lucrative, not glamorous and left her with little money. Yet, they made time to meet and as he rose they stayed together, her being his biggest supporter.
Jelena Ristic is no 'johnny come lately' nor is she just an attractive woman. The beautiful bride has been together with him for nine years during which time she earned her Masters Degree in Luxury Management and Services from one of the most prestigious universities in the world and now is the Chief Executive of the Novak Djokovic Foundation which helps vulnerable children.
However, she has now enjoyed the wedding that many women dream of having to the man of her dreams and the dream is actually a reality.
Jelena Ristic is now Jelena Djokovic, the biggest supporter of tennis star Novak Djokovic and proof that dreams can come true.
