Newlyweds killed in helicopter crash hours after wedding in US

Will and Bailee Ackerman Byler were killed as they left their wedding in Texas. It was a attractive outdoor ceremony at the ranch owned by the groom's family outside San Antonio, Texas.

Byler's grandfather, William Byler, told the TV station that the couple died when a helicopter that had departed the wedding reception in crashed.

Ackerman and Byler had been classmates in university, where they were both members of the rodeo team.

Later, all that remained on the site was a picture of the couple, their names and the date and place of the wedding.

"Our deepest sympathies and thoughts are with this family at their great loss", it reads. "Our hearts hurt now, but we know this is not forever".

Fox News also reports that family and friends are expressing their condolences on social media.

As the wedding approached, she wrote: "This whole "bride" experience has been more than I have ever dreamed of. The two loved Jesus and were ideal for each other".

Engagement photos posted on the website show Mr Byler in his cowboy hat embracing Ms Ackerman. "I am in awe of you, Will Byler, and I hope that everyone gets to experience a love like the one we have".

According to the National Transportation Safety Board, the accident involved a Bell 206B - a two-bladed twin-engine helicopter.

In a tragic turn of events, the helicopter crashed about 1:47 a.m. on Sunday, also claiming the life of the aircraft pilot, 76-year-old Gerald Green Lawrence.
