A Tennessee bride attached her one-month-old baby daughter to the train of her wedding dress, dragging the infant down the aisle, and justifying her bizarre behavior by claiming the newborn was “covered by Christ.”
Shona Carter-Brooks defended her curious decision to strap her newborn daughter Aubrey into the train of her wedding dress as she walked down the aisle, saying the baby was “awake and well-secured” and that she was “covered by Christ.”
The following is a 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!!!!
And people are talking. Many are concerned for the welfare of the child, and many feel the mother should be reported to child protection services.
The entire episode is strange, and it is difficult to decipher exactly how Jesus fits into the bizarre decision to drag the infant down the aisle. The fact that the woman chose to include her one-month-old daughter in her wedding ceremony is admirable, but the manner of the inclusion is questionable.
Ultimately, the claim that “we do what we want when we want long as Jesus on our side…” is a childish and lame excuse for boorish if not dangerous behavior.
