Baby on wedding gown


A bride in Tennessee is taking heat for attaching her baby to the train of her wedding gown and dragging her down the aisle.

That's right.

Shona Carter-Brooks said the infant was "awake and well-secured" and that she was "covered by Christ," KSDK-TV reported.

Carter-Brooks gave birth to the girl, Aubrey, just a month before she wed Jonathan Brooks in Ripley, Tennessee.

Many online commenters have panned the decision, with some saying the baby should be placed in child protection services.

Here's the full Facebook post from Carter-Brooks defending her decision:

"People questioning what we do, commenting all negative, and just doing the most. We good though we covered by the Blood which never loose its power. So to the media, radio, news, and whomever else wanting to talk about what WE do here you go: Media Media I see how it works regardless the situation or purpose people gone have something negative to say! The answer is we do what we want when we want long as Jesus on our side everything worked out fine and gone continue to be fine. Our 1 month old was awake and well secured on my train. Most important while yall got ya feelings in us we had our hearts in Christ which covers all!! So keep ya mouths running for it was just that Exclusive and Epic enough we made top blog way from small town Ripley, TN and the social media doing what they do, TALK!!!!"
