The wedding coordinator for Shona Carter-Brooks’ ceremony also comes to her defense over the decision regarding the child and dress.
Every bride dreams of a wedding dress that turns heads. Hopefully that’s due to the beauty of the dress, however, and not because of the infant being dragged behind it.
That’s the controversial tactic of recent bride Shona Carter-Brooks, who, WREG reports, attached her 1-month-old to the train of her wedding dress in an effort to incorporate her daughter into the ceremony.
After images of the baby attached to her dress began to circulate online, the Tennessee bride defended her decision in a Facebook post on May 28. In it, Carter-Brooks says the infant was “awake” and “well secured.” She then disparages the media for the undue attention:
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 … and the social media doing what they do, TALK!!!! [all sic]

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
