Honey Boo Boo Wedding: Camo, Cake And BBQ As 'Mama June' Weds 'Sugar Bear' in Georgia Backyard [VIDEO]

The Honey Boo Boo wedding was everything you’d expect from the famously redneck reality TV family behind “Here Comes Honey Boo” on TLC. The Honey Boo Boo matriarch, June “Mama Bear” Shannon wed her longtime partner, Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson during a backyard ceremony this past Sunday where she rocked a camouflage dress in all its trashy splendor.

The reality TV mom also had her four daughters in attendance including the eponymous star of the family’s reality television show, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, who wore a peach and pink dress which could probably be seen from space.
The 33-year-old Mama Bear was most happy her daughters--besides Honey Boo Boo, big sisters, Pumpkin, Chickadee and Chubbs-- were able to attend, telling People “The day was very special mostly because my girls were able to take part in it. I felt like it was important for them to see this moment and celebrate my love for Sugar Bear."
The Thompson family broke into our television-watching hearts after Honey Boo Boo’s star-making turn on TLC’s Toddlers and Tiaras, following the lives of child beauty contestants. Now the family is paid a reported $50,000 an episode as camera crews follow their often gluttonous adventures in their hometown of McIntyre, Georgia.
That’s where the Sunday Cinco de Mayo wedding took place as well, but guests were instructed “No cell phones, cameras, or outside video taping will be allowed,” though we have some video below of Mama Bear walking down the aisle with her man.
Despite the family’s lucrative deal with TLC and high ratings, they kept the affair in line with their down home style.
Said Mama Bear, “My sister baked the cake, and we spent most of the money on barbecue. 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 Honey Boo Boo mom also had some sound advice about love for her four daughters after tying the knot with Sugar Bear.
“Never settle for a man who doesn't treat you right. If a guy doesn't love everything about you, move on! There are plenty of other fish in the sea.
"I give this advice to my daughters because I always want them to be themselves and surround themselves with people who love them for them."
The new season of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" returns to TLC for it's third season on July 17.
