Jon Bon Jovi Walks Fan Down The Aisle At Her Las Vegas Wedding
Jon Bon Jovi accepted the invitation of an Australian fan and walked her down the aisle at her Las Vegas wedding chapel wedding over the weekend.
Branka Delic had mounted an online campaign to get the New Jersey rocker to attend her wedding this past Saturday at the Graceland Wedding Chapel on the same day Bon Jovi’s tour was scheduled to play the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Jon marred wife Dorothea at the Graceland Chapel in 1989.
On the bonjoviwalkmedowntheaisle.com website she said as a little girl she dreamed of marrying Jon but at age 34 realized that it would never happen and accepted the proposal of boyfriend Gonzo. “Bon Jovi…we’re begging you….make this wedding happen,” she wrote on the website. “There is plenty of time in the afternoon for you to come and walk her down the aisle before the show. We’re living on a prayer and we want you to come lay your hands on me and walk me down the aisle!”
Much to her surprise he showed up to do the honors according to Billboard, posed for pictures and later tweeted his congratulations. His management even supplied a limo for the ride to the chapel. “I dropped the phone and said, ‘get me in that dress now’,” she told the Daily Telegraph. “You have never seen a bride get ready so quickly.”

“I have memories for life which I’ll never forget,” the bride writes. “Such an amazing man to take time from his schedule to come walk this crazy Aussie down the aisle… Jon….. I salute,” wrote Delic.
Delic’s new husband is fine with her Bon Jovi obsession. Before the wedding Delic told the Sydney Daily Telegraph, “Gonzo thinks it is all quite funny … He’s given me a leave pass if I meet him. I’m allowed one kiss. He’s just hoping to bump into Jessica Alba so he can do the same.”
