First full face transplant recipient married in Texas

A Texas man who received the first full face transplant in the country at Brigham and Women’s Hospital was married Saturday in the church where he was injured, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Dallas Wiens, 27, married Jamie Nash, a woman he met in a support group for burn victims. Wiens’s grandfather, Del Peterson, planned to read a toast at the reception from Dr. Bohdan Pomahac, the surgeon who led his operation, hospital spokeswoman Erin ­McDonough said.
