It’s June, and that means it’s wedding season. From June 1-30, Animal Crossing: New Horizons players can play wedding photographer for the month, helping a cute llama couple celebrate their anniversary.

It’s all very pure. This couple is so in love that they booked a photo studio, and each day they want me (or you) to create a new setup to celebrate their relationship. It’s been going very well; I’ve seen plenty of extremely cute and colorful setups posted to social media sites. A couple hours into the event, though, and I’ve started to see wedding season get a bit more chaotic — and arguably, even better.

The way the event works is that players have a single room on Harv’s creepy photo island to create the set — if you’ve got something in your catalog, you can add it to the set. Sure, there are a lot of appropriately themed items in New Horizons, but why add those when Godzilla and a turtle can bear witness to your love?

Feeling bitter about your postponed wedding? You can express that:

Or maybe flowers aren’t your vibe. There’s a setup for you, too.

And then there’s the all-out chaos. Someone stealing Cyrus from Reese. Divorce. A funeral. The depths of hell.

If Harv’s good for one thing, it’s that he’s got this terrible photography island where we can create mayhem. I guess you get more points for following the theme, but what’s the fun in that?
