They say that the act of getting married can do strange things to your mindset, but this one takes the (wedding) cake! In Tennessee (where else), the bride Shona Carter-Brooks did something almost incomprehensible: she tied her one month old daughter into the train of her wedding dress as she walked down the aisle.
