Bringing a whole new sense to wedding fashion, a Jacksonville, Tennessee woman strapped her newborn daughter to the tail-end of her gown as an accessory. Like a tatter tot trapped rolling on a conveyor belt in limbo, the baby went dragging down the wedding aisle; someone took a picture, uploaded it, and the online community responded in uproar.
Commenters on YouTube mentioned the act was “incredibly dangerous” and that the newlyweds should be reported to child protective series.
After the wedding, Carter-Brooks typed and posted on Facebook in response to the overwhelming comments:
“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, as long as Jesus on our side everything worked out fine and gona continue to be fine,” she continued.
Carter-Brooks went on to note that her daughter was unharmed:“Our 1 month old was awake and well secured on my train.”

Not everyone responded adamantly towards Carter-Brooks’ choice.
