As Devon Still says, “it’s like a fairytale.”
Leah Still has beaten cancer and now, the vibrant five-year-old will serve as flower girl in her dad’s dream wedding. On top of that, Leah appears to be growing into a young Vera Wang, as she’ll be designing her own dress for the ceremony.
And you can expect lots of pink and glitter.
“I want my dress to look like this,” the spunky five-year-old told PEOPLE as she held up a sketch at a recent consultation with designer Hayley Paige at her New York City headquarters.
“Lots and lots of glitter!” she giggles, then adds with a shrug. “I’m a glitter girl.”
It’s remarkable to think that just a short time ago, Leah was fighting for her life in a battle against stage 4 neuroblastoma cancer. Her father couldn’t be happier with where things are now.
“I knew pink was going to be involved,” he says with a smile. “She loves princess stuff.”
“She’s just had the best attitude of fight and then move forward with life,” Devon, 26, tells PEOPLE of his daughter. “And look where we are now. I’m getting married to my love and Leah gets to be a part of this wedding. We overcame tragedy and are becoming a family.”
Devon and his bride, Asha Joyce, will wed this spring.
