Photos: Recipient of nation’s first full-face transplant marries fellow burn victim in Fort Worth

At the same Fort Worth church where a near-fatal electrical accident melted away his face and claimed his eyesight, Dallas Wiens transformed pain into bliss Saturday as he exchanged vows with Jamie Nash of Garland.

“I am blessed beyond measure that you have chosen me, and I love you with all of my heart,” Wiens told Nash as they clasped hands in front of more than 150 people at Ridglea Baptist Church.

Separate tragic journeys brought the couple together at Parkland Memorial Hospital, where they met in a support group for burn victims in 2011.
