(CBS) -- Kim Kardashian isn’t the only one to broadcast her wedding on her family’s reality show. Though they won’t say if it’s legal, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson’s mother, June “Mama June” Shannon, said “I do” to her longtime love, Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson, in an anything-but-ordinary ceremony.

The bride, 33, wore a camouflage gown (complete with sparkly tennis shoes) that matched the 41-year-old groom’s pants and orange vest. Both looked ready to hunt some deer if it came down to it. Meanwhile, Honey Boo Boo donned a ruffled bright pink and peach dress for the big day.

The couple held their nuptials outside their Georgia home on May 5, 2013, as the reality-show cameras rolled on. Alana’s big sisters Pumpkin, Chickadee and Chubbs were also in attendance for the ceremony and BBQ. “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.”

The bride said the special day was a family effort (her sister baked the cake), and that they were focused on having the event stay true to their “roots” and be on a “budget.”

“Never settle for a man who doesn’t treat you right,” June said. “If a guy doesn’t love everything about you, move on! There are plenty of other fish in the sea.”

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” returns to TLC on July 17.
