Mama June Shannon and Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson — better known as Honey Boo Boo’s mom and dad — got married over the weekend in full camo. Well, at least we think it was a wedding.
OK, here’s what we know for sure: There was a ceremony at the Honey Boo Boo compound in McIntyre, Georgia. What we don’t know? Whether or not Mama June Shannon and Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson got married or just renewed their commitment to each other.
Regardless, the pair — decked out in orange and brown camo formalwear — did throw a huge party on Sunday — and the whole thing was filmed for the upcoming season of TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
“The day was very special mostly because my girls were able to take part in it,” June told People of the weekend’s festivities. “I felt like it was important for them to see this moment and celebrate my love for Sugar Bear.”
The whole event was a family affair — and the Coupon Queen made sure the whole thing happened on a shoestring budget.
“My sister baked the cake, and we spent most of the money on barbecue,” the mom of Honey Boo Boo, Pumpkin, Chickadee and Chubbs added. “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 family might be a little unconventional, but it’s obvious there’s a lot of love in the house.
“I give this advice to my daughters,” June told People, “because I always want them to be themselves and surround themselves with people who love them for them.”
