Bride attaches 1-month-old newborn to wedding gown

By Sylvannia Soulet     Jun 2, 2014 in Odd News
Jackson - A Tennessee couple is under fire after the bride attached her one-month old infant to the train of her wedding dress and allegedly dragged her down the aisle.
In this modern age of social media and viral videos, people are constantly playing a game of one-upmanship. From elaborate dance routines at Home Depot to the odd Leonard Cohen solo, everyone wants to create that memorable wedding moment that will get guests talking for ages.
Enter Shona Carter-Brooks. The newlywed of Jackson, Tennessee married her husband on May 12 and had captured the momentous occasion in a unique (and controversial) way. A photograph has been making the rounds on the Internet depicting Brooks walking down the aisle while her 1-month old daughter Aubrey is seemingly being dragged along by the train of the wedding dress.
The backlash, unsurprisingly, has been quite severe.
“WHY? I am sorry but if I would have saw that I would have gotten out of my seat and taken that baby. That is truly dumb,” commented one reader on the Clutch Magazine website. Others have gone as far to say that child protective services should be called on the family.
Brooks, however is unfazed by the critics, and has even taken to Facebook to defend herself against the mom-shaming.
People questioning what we do, commenting all negative, and just doing the most. We good though we covered by the Blood which never loose (sic) 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 (sic) 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 (sic) 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!!
Still, it may all be just a big misunderstanding. The sister of the bride insists that the baby was not dragged down the aisle; she was merely placed in the train of the dress long enough for a photograph to be taken.
Or perhaps it was all a well-calculated move by Brooks to garner more media attention for her big day. Although she claimed her child was attached to a Vera Wang wedding dress, a representative for the fashion designer has since spoken out to deny those claims.
