Wedding Season is upon us in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and we’ve got everything you need to know about the event, including dates, rewards, and more.

Wedding Season was first revealed in the ‘Free Update Trailer’ back in April, and finally saw husband and wife alpacas Reese and Cyrus coming to New Horizons. The pair had previously been left out of the game, leaving fans to wonder where they were and if they would ever be added.

The event features the couple as they participate in an anniversary photoshoot on Harvey’s Island. Players can earn exclusive rewards from the celebration, as well as finally getting to hang out with the long-awaited New Leaf characters once again.

Animal Crossing’s Wedding Season

The event starts on June 1, and runs all the way to the 30th. You’ll need to use Dodo Airlines to travel to Harvey’s Island, which you gain access to after your island recruits its third resident. The dog runs a free photography service in his cabin called Photopia.

Reese and Cyrus will enlist your help in setting up and arranging their anniversary photoshoot, using various items from the wedding set in order to capture some amazing memories of their special day.

After completing the event once, you’ll need to speak to Harvey when you return on other days in order to start it.

Head to Harv’s Island to start the celebrations.

You’ll be gifted prizes as a thank you for helping out, as well as a few Heart Crystals depending on the amount of furniture you use in the shoot – though it caps at 11 per day for the first week, and 15 after that. You can trade them in for items by talking to Cyrus.

The prizes are as follows:

  • Wedding fence DIY
  • Wedding flooring
  • Wedding arch
  • Wedding bench
  • Wedding chair
  • Wedding flower stand
  • Wedding table
  • Wedding head table
  • Wedding pipe organ

Several of the items come in different colors, so there’s definitely incentive to try and collect everything. After all, you have around a month, so that’s plenty of time to play photographer with the alpaca couple.

You’ll need to download an update on June 1 before you can dive into the marital season, so make sure your Nintendo Switch is connected to the internet for smooth sailing.
