Mama June and Sugar Bear exchanged vows on Cinco de Mayo.

They are the parents of the famous pint-sized beauty queen and TLC phenomenon Honey Boo Boo. Mama Bear (June Shannon, 33) opted for a camouflage and orange dress instead of a more traditional look (are you surprised?).

But wait ... was it actually a wedding?

According to, the couple won't say whether they were married or just recommitted to each other. And USA Today is reporting that it was indeed a commitment ceremony and that guests were "encouraged to wear 'full redneck attire.'"

Regardless of what it was, the pair, who met nine years ago in an online chat room, dressed up and celebrated their love at a big family barbecue with daughters Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson, 7), Pumpkin, Chickadee, and Chubbs. Honey Boo Boo wore a bright orange and red dress.

The family stars, of course, in "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" on TLC, which returns for a new season in July.

What do you think of Mama June's dress?
