There was cake, there was an outrageous wedding dress and there were vows—but there wasn't a marriage license.

E! News confirms that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo stars Mama June and Sugar Bear's wedding ceremony, held yesterday in their Georgia backyard, was just to reaffirm their love for one another, and was not legally recorded.

"it was just a commitment ceremony," a source exclusively tells E! News. 

However, not signing any papers was not a big deal for the couple and parents of four, who were more than pleased with just sharing that intimate moment with 180 of their loved ones. 

"It had all of the fanfare and it was nice," the source added. "They were very happy. They had all their family. It was like regular wedding ceremony."

Mama June told People magazine, "The day was very special mostly because my girls were able to take part in it. I felt like it was important for them to see this moment and celebrate my love for Sugar Bear."

Fans can witness the joyous occasion during the new season of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which premieres on TLC July 17.
