Shona Carter-Brooks’ wedding ceremony this past weekend was definitely different. It is also considered shameful by a legion of critics who blasted Carter-Brooks on social media.
The Jackson, Tenn., bride wanted her infant to be part of her wedding day so badly that she strapped the 1-month-old baby to the train of her wedding dress and walked down the isle.
Carter-Brooks traipsed to the front of the church Elam Baptist Church in Jackson, Tennessee, with the baby part of her costume. Surprised wedding guests immediately fired up their cell phone posted the unique sight on Instagram and Facebook.
The blowback from this unprecedented stunt was immediate and intense, with many denouncing Carter-Brooks’ actions and called for authorities to investigate her. The critics believe the newborn was endangered or could have been injured seriously.
Carter-Brooks defiantly clapped back at her critics, ensuring them that her baby was safe because the baby was “covered by the blood which never looses its power. As long as Jesus on our side everything worked out fine and gonna continue to be fine.”
