Devon Still's Daughter Leah Was Just the Cutest at His & Asha Joyce's Wedding


Leah Still was the cutest flower girl at her dad Devon Still's wedding Friday and stole the show at the reception with a heartwarming speech.

The 6-year-old cancer survivor, who captured the hearts of fans with her brave health battle, led the NFL star's bride and longtime love Asha Joyce down the aisle. She and Devon wed in a romantic ceremony at the New York Public Library in New York City.

Family and friends, including his fellow football players, attended the event, which was livestreamed on Facebook and was selected as The Knot's Dream Wedding of the year.

Devon and his little girl had made headlines two years ago when he revealed Leah had been diagnosed with stage IV neuroblastoma. In March 2015, the family was told she is cancer-free.

"Thank you for everyone supporting me and I love my new family," Leah told wedding guests at the reception, as seen in a video celebrity guest Holly Robinson Peete posted on Instagram. "Now let's party!"

The happy couple entered the wedding to Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered." At the reception, they and Leah all danced together to "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars, earning applause from their guests.

Asha wore three dresses that evening: A strapless Pnina Tornai wedding gown with Swarovski crystals, lace appliques and a mermaid skirt, paired with Simon G jewelry, as well as a champagne, ruffled Allure gown with a mermaid skirt and a strapless, tulle Allison Parris dress from Rent the Runway.

Devon sported a custom-made dark velvet Martin Greenfield Clothier tuxedo.

Leah looked adorable in a sparkling, pink Hayley Paige flower girl dress and a custom-made bracelet designed by the bride and groom and artisans and designers at Simon G. Jewelry.

The bracelet incorporates her favorite color—pink—and includes butterflies to represent "transformation into a new, beautiful life," The Knot said in a statement.

 

"After we got engaged, we put off on the wedding because my daughter was supposed to be the flower girl," Devon said in a statement released by The Knot. "When the doctors gave her a 50/50 chance of surviving, we were not sure that we were ever going to get to that point where I was able to watch her walk down the aisle."

"Now that we are going into the wedding, I think it's finally hitting us that we are over that hump," he added. "She really beat cancer."
