(CNN) - Wednesday marks 15 years since John F. Kennedy Jr. and his wife, Carolyn Bessette, died in a plane crash.

The couple was on the way to a relative's wedding when the plane, piloted by Kennedy, crashed in the waters off Martha's Vineyard.

Carolyn Bessette's sister, Lauren Bessette, also died on the single-engine plane.

All three bodies were found in the submerged plane days later on July 21.
