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
  • Wedding welcome board
  • Reese & Cyrus photo plate
  • Wedding cake
  • Wedding candle set
  • Wedding rug
  • Wedding pumps
  • Wedding shoes
  • Wedding wand DIY
  • Wedding decorations
  • Wedding wall
  • Cake dress
  • Wedding tuxedo
  • Bridal veil
  • Handmade crown

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.

Animal Crossing’s latest outing, New Horizons, was the breakout hit of 2020. Since its debut in March, the lovable Nintendo title has taken over social media as players around the world share their unique creations.

One Pokemon fan used the the game’s new editing tools to accurately build a Pokecenter in the social simulation title. Their stunning recreation of the iconic RPG location is one of the best things you will see all week.

Originally releasing on the GameCube in 2001, Animal Crossing has become a juggernaut for Nintendo. Its latest release, New Horizons, has given players an unprecedented amount of freedom to shape their island to their wildest imaginations.

Using the new game mechanics, a Pokemon fan set out to recreate what is perhaps the most iconic location in the Game Freak RPG – a Pokecenter. Artist ‘acnh.pokeland‘ shared their incredible project on the r/AnimalCrossing and r/Pokemon subreddits on January 5. “Pokéland is now opened!! 1st section: The Pokémon Center!!” they wrote.

The image shows the user’s Animal Crossing avatar adorably posing in Nurse Joy’s signature medical uniform. The artist creatively used various New Horizons items to bring the location to life, such as a pink shirt behind the counter featuring a Blissey design, and round hats patterned to look like Pokeballs.

Incredibly this isn’t the only location the talented fan has created in New Horizons. Over on their Instagram account, they showed off images of their Poke-Mart as well. Longtime players of the RPG will remember the in-game store used to be a separate building up until Gen IV.

This isn’t the first time Pokemon fans have gotten creative in the Switch title. In May, one Animal Crossing user recreated battle Stadiums from the RPG. Players in July also used the custom Fireworks feature to light up the sky with popular ‘mon.

Despite releasing only at the beginning of 2020, New Horizons is already the second highest-selling game in Japan of all time. The social simulation title has sparked the imaginations of millions – including many creative Pokefans.
