Mama June Shannon Gets Married to Husband Justin Stroud for a Second Time
The 43 year old From Not to Hot star revealed that the wedding took place in an ‘intimate oceanfront ceremony.’ The event was attended by her daughters Alana Thompson, Lauryn Efird, Jessica Shannon, and Anna Cardwell, and her granddaughters Stella, Sylus, and Bentley Efird.
Following the special day, Shannon released a statement saying, “This was the first time the family had all been together since 2014. So it was really special to get married in a place where my family and I have had so many memories!”
“We wanted to have a small and very intimate wedding, so we didn’t have any groomsmen or bridesmaids. All four of my girls walked me down to Justin, and his mom walked him down the aisle,” she added.
Shannon chose David’s Bridal gown for her big day, and Stroud wore an E&S Formal tuxedo and paired it with Jordans. After exchanging their vows, the couple danced to Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud and cut a six-flavored cake prepared by Cakes By Ricca.
The Couple Previously Tied the Knot in March 2022
Shannon and Stroud had a court marriage in March last year but kept the news a secret. They finally announced their wedding in June with a post on Instagram. “I know you guys been seeing it all over the Internet so we are here to clear up some of the rumors,” Shannon said at the time.
“[We] are off the market. Guys, you know what, when you know, just know. That’s right, no jokes, I really was scared of the M-word, but hey, Justin made me not be scared of it anymore because he wifey-ed me up,” she revealed.
“Justin is an amazing person, and he understands everything I’ve been going through. I’ve been able to share stuff with him that I’ve never been able to share with other people — not even my kids and so it’s really nice to have that partnership,” Shannon said, talking about her husband.
Shannon’s Daughters were Unaware of her First Wedding
Shannon and Stroud’s first wedding was kept hidden even from the reality star’s daughter. In an interview, Lauryn and Alana revealed that they got to know about their mother’s marriage after receiving a letter from the Georgia courthouse.
“Genuinely I was waiting for her to be like, OK y’all, I went up and got married. We got out to the parking lot and said, Well congratulations on being married, I got the receipt in the mail and she was like, No, no, no, I didn’t get married. I didn’t get married,” Lauryn explained.
Alana added, “I wasn’t hurt. I was more shocked because my mama always said that she would never get married and that she would never go off and just get married with somebody. She was scared of marriage to say the least. And now she just got married with this dude she hadn’t even known a whole year yet.”
