Houston Texans defensive end Devon Still is finally married to long-time girlfriend Asha Joyce! The two exchanged vows in a heart-warming and emotional ceremony at the New York Public Library in front of 180 guests, according to The Knot, the website that helped plan the wedding.
Still and Joyce’s nuptials were the Knot’s 2016 “The Knot Dream Wedding” which meant it was THE wedding of the year with details voted on by readers. Not only did Still and Joyce get the perfect day, but fans were able to follow along on social media with live wedding coverage, including live Facebook videos, which is pretty cool if you’re a sentimental fool like me.
Now, every wedding day is pretty emotional, but the couple made sure to include Still’s daughter, Leah, throughout the ceremony. Sports fans know Leah for her brave battle with Stage 4 neuroblastoma (she’s been cancer free for a year). Her public battle with the disease and Devon Still’s devotion to his daughter melted hearts across America (let’s not forget the moving speech he gave on her behalf for the Jimmy V award) and she proved this weekend that she still has the ability to make grown men and women shed a tear. Happy tears this time.
First, we have her toast at the wedding’s reception.
Then this father-daughter dance (make note they had their own Snapchat geotag).
And the kicker, this sweet, sweet photo of an emotional Leah as flower girl.
And this happier one, because she’s adorable.
It’s pretty hard for a bride to be shown up on her wedding day, but Asha had some tough competition.
It looks like they had a ton of fun though.
