Jon Bon Jovi Gives Bride Surprise of Her Life
One Bon Jovi fan’s dream was to convince Jon Bon Jovi to walk her down the aisle on her wedding day. And her dream came true this past weekend. The singer showed up to escort Branka Delic to her groom during a ceremony at the Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas on Saturday. The singer even offered picture proof.
Delic’s Facebook push to grab Bon Jovi’s attention began in September, when she created a website explaining why it was so important for him to show up, joking that she might skip the ceremony and attend the band’s concert in Vegas on the same night if he didn’t show up. Actually, it’s not clear that she was joking. So her new husband might be even more grateful to Bon Jovi’s frontman.
“All her life, Branka thought she would marry Bon Jovi himself,” the website reads. “Sadly, at the age of 34, she realized this would never happen, and she accepted [Gonzalo “Gonzo” Claderia’s] proposal instead … Gonzo has waited 14 years for this day, and if Branka skips it, he’ll have to wait 14 more.”
The bride talked to the Sydney Daily Telegraph after the incident, explaining that Bon Jovi sent a limousine for her and showed up saying, “So, are we going to do this?” “There were all these other brides there, and you should have seen the looks on their faces,” she said. “I didn’t cry because I didn’t want to ruin my makeup and look awful.”
The venue probably brought back some special memories for Bon Jovi. He married his wife Dorothea at the same chapel 24 years ago.
