MEMPHIS, TN – A newlywed couple in Tennessee is facing a wave of criticism on social media for something they did during their wedding last month. Shona Carter-Brooks and Johnathan brooks got married may 12th near Nashville. Their wedding was just one month after the birth of their daughter.

Carter-Brooks posted a picture from their wedding ceremony to Facebook. It shows the newborn going down the aisle on the train of her dress.

She responded to negative reaction to the picture, saying the baby was awake and safely secured to the dress and she was never in danger. Carter-Brooks she say she doesn’t regret her decision.

“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!!” the woman wrote on Facebook.

Here's the full 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!!!!

What do you think?  I hope this is clickable.  I don't think it's the end of the world, but it's certainly not the best decision.

I thought I was more tech savvy, but apparently, I'm not!

I tried to link the video but couldn't.  It looks cute, but probably would have made more sense to not walk down the aisle dragging her on the train.

OMG people are so freaking dumb. there should be a test to take in order to be a parent - ugh, or else we should just get rid of all the safety warnings and let nature take its course.

Would be cuter to just carry her or use a wagon with the ring boy. But it's her wedding as long as baby is safe it's fine w me.

A ltittle tacky, almost like the baby is an afterthought.  In the big picture...not a big deal
