Rosemere do Nascimento Silva wanted to surprise her husband-to-be by making a dramatic entrance to their wedding in a helicopter.
Tragically, the aircraft crashed moments before the ceremony, instantly killing the bride and three others.
The groom, Udirley Narques Damasceno, 34, was told his wife-to-be had been killed while waiting to marry her at the altar alongside 300 guests at the wedding venue in the grounds of Recanto Beija-Flor in Sao Laurenco da Serra, San Paulo, Brazil.
The helicopter crashed in a forested area near the football field it was scheduled to land in.
Sao Paulo Fire Department sent eight teams to the scene, although there were no survivors. The journey would have taken just 15 minutes.
