Smile Another overexposed wedding image

Hi, its me again. I have another overexposed image which I have been trying to correct using curves, went over various tutorials on the net regarding this type of image but all I found were tutorials on buildings, skie but never on faces. I tried changing it into black and white but the light of the flash still shows on his face. Could someone please help me and explain me how to do this for the future.
Thank you very much.

You could open it in raw & do the adjustments there.

I have found that selecting the faces and applying the enhance/adjust brightness to about a -50 and then lowering the saturation to about -40 to the selection will eliminate most of your problem.

Well I switched to lab mode and using a curves adjustment layer, I set the maximum luminosity to around 235. Then using a layer set to color blending mode I painted the blown out areas with adjacent skin color and then switched back to RGB mode.

In RGB mode, I used Image/Adjustment Shadow highlights to tone down the highlights even more.
