Honey Boo Boo Wedding: Camouflage And BBQBy: Amanda Crum - May 6, 2013
Honey Boo Boo (Alanna Thompson) and her sisters celebrated Cinco de Mayo with BBQ, brightly-colored dresses, and wedding cake.
Mama June, mom to the “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” star and her three sisters, made her love for longtime beau official on Sunday when they tied the knot in their backyard. June stayed true to her redneck ways by offering up some good old fashioned Southern barbecue rather than standard wedding fare, and walked down the aisle (well, lawn) in a custom-made camouflage wedding gown with hunter’s orange accents.
“My sister baked the cake, and we spent most of the money on barbecue,” says June. “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!”
But June planned ahead to make sure her big day wasn’t spoiled by technology; just because it was being filmed for their reality show didn’t mean she wanted any drama. The invitations asked guests to refrain from videotaping the event, including on cell phones.
Mama June and her new hubs, Sugar Bear, have lived together for several years; he is Alanna’s biological father and is stepdad to June’s other three daughters.
“The day was very special mostly because my girls were able to take part in it,” June said. “I felt like it was important for them to see this moment and celebrate my love for Sugar Bear.”
