Dallas Wiens, the North Texas man who received the nation's first full face transplant celebrated another milestone on Saturday; he got married.

Wiens married Jamie Nash, a woman he met in a support group, at a ceremony in in Fort Worth. Wiens was injured in an electrical accident in 2008; Nash was badly burned in a car wreck in Ellis County in 2010.

The two plan to share their wedding footage in a reality show about people who experience tragedy, but go on to help others.
