Smile Overexposed image help

Hello all, at a wedding I took a photo of the bridegroom with his mother but alas a disaster. One is overexposed, the other one he has his eyes shut...it was a rainy day so didn't get the chance to take another one, can someone please help? I use Paint Shop Pro X for my images as I find photoshop to be very complex. I have uploaded both images so look forward to your help.
If someone has managed to correct my overexposed image I'd love to know how was this done for the future.
Thanks a lot.

Take the eyes from the overexposed image. Use curves to blend them in.

Re: Overexposed image help

When you have burned out places in the picture,
you can not see something that is not there.
Opening in Raw could help some,but if it is white.
The only thing you can do is live with it, or paint the places
with a brush.

I made this picture with sepia and some color.
Like this.

I have a larger file if wanted.
