God is good and crazy faithful. With all the prayers for the Still family through Leah’s cancer diagnosis, it was beautiful to see her enjoy her daddy’s wedding. This family has been through the worst of times, but this dream wedding shows that the good days surely outweigh the bad.
Leah Still couldn’t hold back tears of joy at her father’s wedding. It truly was a dream wedding.
Houston Texans defensive end Devon Still wed longtime fiancée Asha Joyce in a gorgeous Manhattan wedding on Friday.
Joyce had three outfit changes throughout the night and Devon’s NFL groomsmen couldn’t stop giving him fist bumps – but it was Leah Still, Devon’s 6-year-old daughter, who stole the show.
Leah, who wore a custom-designed pink flower girl gown, couldn’t hold back tears as she watched her dad and her now-stepmom exchange vows.
“I love my new family,” she said wiping away tears at the reception after.
“Thank you for all your support,” she added.

Devon, 26, and Asha, 26, put their marriage plans on hold two years ago when Leah was diagnosed with life-threatening stage 4 neuroblastoma. When Devon shared the news that Leah was cancer in March 2015, the couple decided to pick up wedding planning where they had left off.
“We put off the wedding because my daughter was battling cancer. Now that [the wedding] is officially here, it’s the beginning of our future and the end to a hard time,” Devon tells PEOPLE. “When I saw [Leah] even before the wedding, I got emotional. We’d been waiting for this moment for a long time.”
“This is my first real wedding!” Leah tells PEOPLE. “It’s great!”
