Bride Aims for 'Creative' Wedding Dress by Tying Her Baby to the Train

This one has us shaking our heads.
A Tennessee bride is (understandably) sparking some outrage after she recently walked down the aisle with her baby tied to the train of her wedding dress.
One more time: Her baby was tied to her wedding dress.
While the mom in question, Shona Carter-Brooks, insisted that her baby (who, by the way, was only a month old at the time) was tied securely, awake the whole time and "covered by Christ," others were not so sure. In fact, many were outraged. Backlash started flooding in after photos of the wedding were posted to Facebook, the Daily Mail reports. Some even commented that they were tempted to report her to Child Protective Services.
Admonishing all the haters out there, Carter-Brooks shot back on Facebook with this response:
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 y'all 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!!!!
We're all for creative, DIY wedding ideas, but let's be real here. There is a fine line between "trying to be unique" and putting your newborn baby in a less-than-safe situation.
