Devon, Asha and Leah Still's 'dream wedding'

Watch Leah cut a rug to 'Uptown Funk'

Devon and Asha Still celebrated their long-awaited "dream wedding" on Friday in New York City.

 

Of course, 6-year-old Leah stole the show in the most adorable ways.

Leah cried "happy tears" while her dad and stepmom exchanged vows.

And after finishing her toast to the bride and groom, Leah kicked of the reception and said "Now let's party!"

As we saw during her "Whip/Nae Nae" phase, Leah also loves to dance. Her wedding moves did not disappoint.

 

The newlyweds Devon Still and Asha (Joyce) Still put their wedding planning on hold when Leah was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. Still's football career with the Cincinnati Bengals was also paused so he could spend more time with his daughter.

Still was let go from the team in Sept. 2015, but now plays for the Houston Texans. However, Still's groomsmen and guest list did include a handful of Bengals.

Still credits Asha for helping him and Leah get through cancer treatments and setbacks and promised her "the wedding of her dreams" in his 2015 ESPYs acceptance speech.

"You stood by my side, you let me know that you weren't going anywhere, that you were going to be there for me," Still said during his acceptance speech for the Jimmy V Perseverance Award. "I promise you I'm going to try and give you the wedding of your dreams." 

The couple was chosen to be this year's "Dream Wedding" through TheKnot.com. Their wedding was paid for in full.

The couple asked guests to donate to cancer charities rather than bring gifts.

 

When NFL defensive tackle #DevonStill found out his then four-year-old daughter, Leah, had stage 4 neuroblastoma, a rare and deadly childhood cancer, he and #AshaJoyce held off on planning their wedding until #LeahStrong could walk down the aisle as a flower girl.

"Nothing can take the joy out of this moment when you been through hell to make it there," Still wrote on Instagram Friday. He called his new little family "a winning team."
