FORT WORTH, Texas —

A Texan who became the first in the nation to receive a full face transplant recipient after a 2008 power line accident has wed another burn victim he met at a support group.

Dallas Wiens and Jamie Nash exchanged vows Saturday at the Fort Worth church where he was critically hurt.

Pastor Scott Cox says about 200 people attended the wedding at Ridglea Baptist Church. Cox says the couple told him they believe God brought them together.

Wiens was painting the church in 2008 when he touched a power line. He suffered facial injuries and was blinded. In 2011 he underwent a full facial transplant at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.

Nash's hands and back were burnt in a 2010 traffic accident.
