Honey Boo Boo wedding: Mama June and Sugar Bear had a wedding with characteristic flair—a Georgia barbeque, a camouflage dress, sparkling sneakers, and more.

Stars of the TLC show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, June “Mama” Shannon and Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson, had a wedding in their Georgia backyard on Sunday.

“My sister baked the cake, and we spent most of the money on barbeque,” Mama June told People. “We stayed true to our roots and made the focus on the family and my commitment to Sugar Bear. You can definitely plan an event on a budget!”

The couple would not say, however, whether they were actually married; they said it was an event to show their dedication to one another. Mama June told People she wants her four daughters to always “surround themselves with people who love them for them.” 

Mama June, 33, wore a camouflage dress with an orange sash, matched by the orange vests and camouflage pants of Sugar Bear, 41, and his groomsmen. Mama June’s daughter, seven-year-old child beauty pageant participant Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, wore a bright pink dress and carried a basket of roses.
