How to start the Wedding Day event

Upon loading up Animal Crossing: New Horizons on June 1, players will find their day starting off with an announcement from Isabelle talking about love being in the here. From here, Harvey will call players up on their Nookaphone and ask for their help at Photopia. To officially kick off the Wedding Day event, you’re going to need to make your way down to the Dodo Airlines counter and fly over to Harvey’s island.

After arriving on Harvey's island he'll ask you to handle the shoot for Reese and Cyrus.

Once you arrive at Harvey’s, Wilbur will point out a bit of commotion in front of the photographer’s house. Walk up and you’ll find Harvey talking to Cyrus and Reese. They’ll mention their anniversary and all of that and then Harvey will ask you to take care of setting up the shoot. This will kick the Wedding Event off, and it will continue throughout the rest of the month, allowing you to unlock more items as you go.

If you’re looking to collect more items from the Wedding Day event, then you’re going to need to take part in daily photoshoots with Reese and Cyrus. Each day that you take part in the event, you’ll need to play down multiple decorative items to maximize Reese’s satisfaction with the shoot. If you meet all the requirements that she sets before you, you can earn up to 15 Heart Crystals that you can spend on various wedding-themed items by talking to Cyrus.
