Several of the guest stars from throughout the first campaign of Critical Role are sending in their wedding congratulations. As part of the rewards for their extremely successful Kickstarter campaign, Critical Role just had their one-shot of Percival and Vex’ahlia’s wedding. The two characters, played by Taliesin Jaffe and Laura Bailey, had a long-running romance throughout the story of Vox Machina. Towards the end of the campaign, they were secretly married. But now they are having their wedding again in the beach resort called Dalen’s Closet. Bringing back the original beloved characters, many of the guests that knew the two are sending in their congrats.

Noelle Stevenson, who played the role of Tova and was also returned for a one-shot, tweeted:
“Congratulations, you two! Wish I could be there, but I had some shopping to do . . .”
This outpouring of love and nostalgia from the guest stars is a sweet gesture. A love letter to this weekly Dungeons and Dragons Livestream that continues to grow and amaze those around it. This one-shot has been part of an ongoing series that has inadvertently continued the story of Vox Machina. Fans were also excited to see Ashley Johnson reprising her role as Pike given that she is often filming Blind Spot in New York City. And Sam Riegel reprised his role as Taryon Darrington. There has been a recent announcement of a Taryon-centric live show in Austin, Texas this November.
Many fans also tweeted their own congratulations or selfies in their wedding attire best to celebrate the occasion in a heartwarming display of love.
