Honey Boo Boo’s mom had the redneck wedding ceremony of her dreams on the season finale of ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ on Sept. 11! Friends and family flocked to the family’s Georgia home to see her and Sugar Bear exchange vows and celebrate with a raucous barbecue.
Here comes the bride, all dressed in camouflage! Mama June has finally tied the knot with her beloved Sugar Bear. The stars of TLC’s kooky reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo actually got hitched on May 5, but fans didn’t get to see the romantic wedding until the Sept. 11 season two finale. Talk about keeping us in suspense!
Mama June & Sugar Bear’s Wedding — ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ Finale
A lot went into preparing for this highly-anticipated ceremony. For starters, Sugar Bear had to sleep in a tent in the backyard the night before the big day (it’s a tradition), but he didn’t mind. “I’d sleep in the sewers for her,” he said of Mama June. How sweet…
Mama June also shaved her neck hair for the big day, and Sugar Bear revealed that he purchased “some special ‘manties’ for this occasion.”
Jokes aside, it was quite touching when Sugar Bear cried during the ceremony. It seems like these two really will live happily ever after!
After Mama June and her hubby were pronounced “Mr. and Mrs. Bear,” the Shannon family threw a huge blowout party. They put on a big barbecue in their Georgia backyard, inviting friends and family to get down with them on Cinco de Mayo.
Obviously Honey Boo Boo was in attendance, along with her sisters Pumpkin, Chickadee, and Chubbs. Mama June talked about how important it was to have her girls by her side as she committed to Sugar Bear: “The day was very special mostly because my girls were able to take part in it,” June told People. “I felt like it was important for them to see this moment and celebrate my love for Sugar Bear.
Mama June Gives Advice On Love
Mama June also had some solid advice to give on having a strong relationship. “Never settle for a man who doesn’t treat you right,” she says. “If a guy doesn’t love everything about you, move on! There are plenty other fish in the sea.”
Mama June revealed that she passed along that advice to her daughters and that’s why it’s such a big deal for them to see her love with Sugar Bear. “I always want them to be themselves and surround themselves with people who love them for them.”
Congratulations to Mama June and Sugar Bear!
