The Texas-based young couple was killed when a chopper carrying them home from their own wedding crashed, according to officials.

According to a report by BBC on Tuesday, Will Byler and Bailee Ackerman Byler were both students at Sam Houston State University.

The crash took place near Uvalde, about 85 miles (135km) west of San Antonio.

The wedding ceremony attendees have been posting their condolences on social media in the captions of wedding photographs. "I'm absolutely devastated!" wrote one friend on Facebook, adding that the pilot of the aircraft was also killed.

In a statement, the university's student president said the married couple will "always be remembered by their kind hearts and uplifting spirits".

The two were married for just over an hour before their helicopter crashed on the Byler family's ranch in southern Texas.

The National Transportation Safety Board on Monday said the accident involved a Bell 206B helicopter. The wreckage from the crash was discovered on Sunday morning.
