Animal Crossing: New Horizons is without doubt one of the most wholesome games to grace the Nintendo Switch this year - even if it hasn't been for everyone - but this story tops pretty much everything we've seen so far.
With the ongoing coronavirus outbreak causing havoc among events around the world, including gatherings considered non-essential, the wedding of this story's star couple was sadly cancelled. Taking things into their own hands, one of them decided to team up with their best friends to set up and plan a surprise wedding within the game, complete with a romantic beach setting.
Speaking on Reddit, the lucky soul who was treated to this surprise do, ashmush, explains how it all happened:
My fiance planned it out with our best friends, Im graduating from med school and not getting a graduation and our wedding was cancelled. I was feeling pretty down about missing out on my milestones.
This made me so happy, I don't even have the words to describe how much it meant to me...
It took him like 2 hours to do it apparently....I think it means he's a keeper.
We're loving the attention to detail, such as the initials on the floor, the love hearts, and the flowers scattered around the scene. If you have friends who own a copy of the game, visiting each others' islands for a nice spot of socialising could be a great way to get through these troubling times - especially if you all have a wedding to attend.

Saved a few quid there. Plus no issues with who sits where and next to whom.
How romantic...! 🤗
The subheading gave me a good chuckle. Thanks, Ryan.
"I think it means he's a keeper."
Wait... but if you're getting married... shouldn't you already know?
That's pretty awesome, but having to share a wedding with a loved one...0/10.
This is an rather sweet story in these difficult times. Shows how handy AC can be
That's pretty awesome! Very heartfelt. I hope they're happy together and will get to eventually have the real deal.
I'm hoarding toilet paper in Animal Crossing.
@Octane ...then visit other peoples island & nick all these
@Not_Soos You can think you know whether your spouse is a keeper, but stuff can happen after the marriage that tells you otherwise...
@Lordplops Haha and 2 whole hours of planning! Ultimately however this is super adorable and a great thing to do utilising a lovely game when everything else atm sucks.
you hear about the ppl rating the game for something idiotic, then you see something wholesome like this just shows how ppl are missing out on great things by just complaining...
This is the news I like to hear come out of video games
Our wedding in May has also been postponed. Absolutely gutted.
People wil always find a way.
I did that with my sisters wedding in minecraft lol
