Bridesmaid Madey Pipkin left a tribute to Ackerman on Facebook.

She wrote in the moving post:
"In the past five days I have been part of the most beautiful wedding I have ever witnessed to the most heart wrenching tragedy I can imagine. I've been with both families throughout and can honestly say the only thing that carries everyone through is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Both families have such incredible faith and Will and Bailee shared their love of our Lord. There have been so many signs of God"s presence through this. This photo was taken with my phone when they were braiding their unity cord. The three strands symbolizing Will, Bailee, and their bond being fortified with God. A cord of three strands is not easily broken. Ecc. 4:12. It"s obvious to see Them surrounded in God"s glory in this photo. Angels really do walk among us. Please let their lives be a testimony to us all to love and walk with the Lord as it could be our last. We will love you forever Will and Bailee Rae. Enjoy your forever honeymoon. 💕"

Pipkin shared beautiful photos from the day.

There are no words for the sadness the family and friends must be feeling.

The story has touched so many hearts.













Our hearts are with the family and friends of all three victims.

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Redditor Croakied wanted to discuss the times we've all said... "once was enough!" They asked:

"What is one thing that you will NEVER do again?"

There is an age old question that has been getting more traction surrounding sex for partners the last decade or so.

And that is... "is just one enough?"

Were we really meant to only be with one person forever?

There are so many flavors to taste.
