During her wedding last weekend at Elam Baptist Church in Ripley, Tenn., Shona Carter-Brooks was dressed in a Vera Wang dress, according to a status on her Facebook page. Most people would have their eyes set on the bride and her dress under normal circumstances, but Carter-Brooks’ 1-month old baby, Aubrey, stole the show as she is seen attached to the train of the dress.
