Get Stuff We Love
Devon Still and Asha Joyce tied the knot — and it was the sweetest celebration!
The NFL player and Joyce, both 26, said "I do" Friday night during a ceremony at the New York Public Library, almost six months after Devon's daughter, Leah Still, 6,was declared cancer free.
Devon had originally postponed the nuptials two years ago, when Leah was first diagnosed with stage-4 neuroblastoma cancer. After a year-and-a-half battle with the disease, which Devon documented on social media (and captured the hearts of many), Leah was declared cancer-free last November.
"I looked through all the different pictures from when we started until the end, and I feel very blessed that we were able to make it through this,'' Devon told TODAY in January. "Social media really helped a lot during the dark times because we would go on there and see some of the comments, and it would give us energy."
Still cancer free, Leah served as flower girl in the wedding, which was put together by The Knot as this year's The Knot Dream Wedding. And as People reported, was gifted a custom rose-gold butterfly bracelet to mark the special event, and serve as a symbol for new beginnings for the family.
And no night for the proud papa would be complete without some words from Leah. The 6-year-old made a toast to the happy couple, and all those who supported her family throughout her cancer battle.
"And now let's party!" she ended the toast, after giving the happy couple a hug.
Leah also shared a special dance with the bride and groom, to none other than Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk."
Cheers to the happy family!
