All eyes are usually on the bride when she’s coming down the aisle — maybe a few sneaking a peek or two at the groom to see his reaction. But it wasn’t the blush of the Tennessee woman’s face that had her guests — and now the collective Internet — staring.
It was the back of Shona Carter-Brooks’ fluffy dress that caught everyone’s attention. Lying on the train of the dress, which she wrote was part of the Vera Wang collection at David’s Bridal (though this was denied by the company), was the woman’s 1-month-old baby.
One of the guests of Carter-Brook’s wedding last month said that “the princess tagging behind you it brought tears to my eyes,” according to WREG-TV.
After the woman’s photo went viral, she responded on Facebook to some of the negative comments she’s been getting.
“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,” Carter-Brooks wrote. “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!!”
