JACKSON, Tenn., June 2 (UPI) -- A Tennessee bride is drawing criticism after she dragged her 1-month-old daughter down the aisle on the train of her wedding dress.

Shona Carter-Brooks really wanted her daughter, Aubrey, to be part of her wedding ceremony, so she tied her to her dress and hauled her down the aisle.

According to Carter-Brooks, her daughter was "awake and well-secured" and "covered in Christ" during the ceremony.

"Shona and Johnathan Brooks your wedding was super perfect from the groom and his men and you and your diva's baby you rock the gown and the princess tagging behind you it brought tears to my eyes," a guest wrote on Facebook, according to WREG.

After Carter-Brooks received criticism for the odd way she walked down the aisle, she answered her critics on Facebook.

"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 on her Facebook page, KSDK reported. "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!!!!"
