And the bride wore … camouflage!

Honey Boo Boo's parents, Mama June (June Shannon) and Sugar Bear (Mike Thompson), exchanged vows on May 5 at their home in McIntyre, Georgia; and true to their country roots, the "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" couple wore full redneck attire.

Naturally, the whole family got in on the fun!

Mama June walked down the aisle in a camouflage ballgown, which featured a sweetheart neckline with a cap-sleeved bolero jacket; a ruched, tiered skirt; and a bright orange tulle underskirt and sash. The 33-year-old reality TV star completed her bridal look with matching tennis shoes, a white veil, and a bouquet of tie-dyed roses.

Sugar Bear and his groomsmen rocked camo pants, black shirts and ties, and orange vests and boutonnieres.

Never one to shy away from the spotlight, Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson), who was the flower girl, looked as though she was ready to head back to the pageant circuit, in a neon orange and pink princess gown with a bejewled bodice. She polished off her look with pink flowers in her hair and plenty of makeup.

Mama June and Sugar Bear, who met in an online chat room nine years ago, will not divulge whether or not they actually tied the knot yesterday, but said they wanted to celebrate their love in front of family and friends. A rep from TLC told omg!, "We aren't saying what the ceremony is. You will have to wait for those details until it airs this year."

Of the ceremony, the reality matriarch did tell People, "We stayed true to our roots and made the focus on the family and my commitment to Sugar Bear. My sister baked the cake, and we spent most oft he money on barbecue."

More important, there's one thing that didn't cost a penny -- the advice that June doled out about love. "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 of other fish in the sea."

Wise words, June.

Regardless of whether they're husband and wife, we can "redneckognize" that it was one heck of a party!

We bet their ceremony will be the talk of McIntyre from now until their hit show returns to TLC on July 17.
