Honey Boo Boo’s Mom June and Sugar Bear Marry!
This weekend saw the wedding of “Mama” June Shannon and husband Mike Thompson (“Sugar Bear”), the parents of the seven-year-old star of TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. The marriage comes nine years after the couple first met in an online chatroom.
June is not the sort of person you’d expect to tie the knot quietly – and she didn’t disappoint. The bride made quite an entrance for the nuptials at her backyard in McIntyre, Georgia. Not for her the traditional white gown, Instead she opted to walk down the aisle in a cap-sleeve camouflage gown with bright orange trim with ribbons. Even the roses in her bouquet were multi-colored!
Not to be outdone, her groom sported camouflage trousers and dark shirt with neon waistcoat while their most famous daughter, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” wore a full-length ruffled hot pink and orange confection of a dress.
Older sisters Chickadee, Pumpkin and Chubbs were also there to witness and celebrate the union.
Of course, the whole thing was being filmed, for the next season of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which returns to TLC on July 17.
