David Bergman/Bon Jovi(LAS VEGAS) -- An Australian bride who created a website and Facebook page to catch the eye of rocker Jon Bon Jovi in hopes he would walk her down the aisle saw her dream come true this weekend.

Bon Jovi took time before his show Saturday night in Las Vegas to escort Branka Delic of Sydney down the aisle to her fiancé, Gonzalo “Gonzo” Cladera. The wedding took place at the Graceland Wedding Chapel, the site of the rocker’s own wedding in 1989.

The choice of venue was no coincidence for Delic, 34, a Bon Jovi fanatic who hoped the romantic site would persuade the rocker to make her dream come true.

“She has two loves in her life…Gonzo and Bon Jovi…but not necessarily in that order,” Delic wrote in a description of herself on the website she created Bonjoviwalkmedowntheaisle.com.

All her life, Branka thought she would marry Bon Jovi himself. Sadly, at the age of 34 she realised [sic] this would never happen, and she accepted Gonzo’s proposal instead,” the website reads. “We’re living on a prayer and we want you to come lay your hands on me and walk me down the aisle!”

Delic, who did not reply to ABC News' requests for comment, also created a Facebook page to catch the singer’s eye.

The page got more than 2,000 likes, short of their 5,000 goal, but enough to garner global news coverage, including stories in Bon Jovi’s native New Jersey that obviously got the rocker’s attention.

“Such an amazing man take time from his schedule to come walk this crazy Aussie own the aisle…Jon….. I salute!,” Delic posted after her wedding. “You’re everything I ever imagined, an amazing and generous being …. SO FREAKIN WOW!!”

“7am and still in Vegas Partying….YOU MADE MY LIFE BABY!!” she wrote.

Bon Jovi posted a photo of the walk down the aisle on his own Twitter account Saturday, along with a congratulatory message.

“Congratulations @branksd! May you & Gonzalo have a lifetime of happiness, love & memories together – ALWAYS!” he wrote.

Bon Jovi is scheduled to play his next show on his “Because We Can” world tour Tuesday night in San Antonio, Texas. A representative for the singer had no comment when reached by ABC News.
