He gives love a good name!
Jon Bon Jovi made one super-fan’s dreams come true when he surprised her by walking her down the aisle Saturday at the Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas – 24 years after he married wife Dorothea at the exact same venue.
In August, Australian Bon Jovi fan Branka Delic had started an online petition recruiting him for her wedding to Gonzalo Cladera. The rocker was to be in town the same weekend for the “Because We Can” tour at the MGM Grand.
“Bon Jovi, we’re begging you. Make this wedding happen!” Delic wrote. She also sent pleading Tweets leading up to the wedding, such as, “The day is near, Jon boy. Is it a date or what? Please don’t let this devoted Aussie bride down.”
Still, Delic couldn’t believe it when the musician actually showed up to lend his arm. Afterward, she Tweeted, “You did more than make my dream come true, you changed my life forever! An amazing man with an amazing generous heart.”
Bon Jovi shared his own photo of the wedding walk, captioning, “Congratulations @branksd! May you & Gonzalo have a lifetime of happiness, love & memories together - ALWAYS!”
