All couples. All denominations
Serving Minnesota & North Dakota
My name is James Mulvihill and I am the founder and wedding Officiant/Minister of Two Become One Ceremonies. I started Two Become One Ceremonies in September, 2013 out of a passion for helping others who want a unique and memorable ceremony that is also enjoyable and fun. Through strategic partnerships formed over the years, I’ve learned to be flexible and accommodating to each client’s unique needs and preferences. I hope you’ll let me plan your next unforgettable wedding ceremony. You won’t regret it!
My name is Jean Nissen. I have been with Two Become One Ceremonies since September, 2015. Starting out with Two Become One Ceremonies as a Wedding Officiant, but as time has gone by I have suffered from macular degeneration. I decided since it was getting harder to read words, I stepped down as an Officiant, but I still can marry folks as long as the print is in large. Staying with Two Become One Ceremonies, I took classes and passed with flying colors to do Wedding Planning. So that is what I am doing now here at Two Become One Ceremonies. My past times are spending time with my puppies, getting outside and doing anything in the yard. Also, I love seeing my children and grandchildren.
Hello, my name is Pete Sand. I am an Officiant with Two Become One Ceremonies. I started officiating in 2017. In my free time, I like to go to the lakes and fish. Enjoy spending time with my dog, Joie and my daughter Sage.

They worked closely with us to create the ceremony we wanted. They responded right away when I showed interest in learning more about them and they were very easy to work with. Our whole wedding party said James was funny and did a great job. I also loved that Jean helped everyone get ready to walk down the aisle. We couldn't be happier with how our ceremony went.

Wanted to thank James Mulvihill and Jean for their excellent job at our wedding and helping guide us through what was going to happen during the rehearsal. They were very easy to work with and knowledgeable. We received numerous compliments from our guests about them the rest of the weekend. I would gladly recommend them to anyone looking for an officiant.

Thank you again James and Two Become One Ceremonies! I totally recommend James M. He did a great job! You can choose to have a religious ceremony or a not so religous ceremony. Very easy to talk to and has beautiful words for the bride and groom. Great price and he drove an hour away for us! Very professional but super down to earth. Great communication and if you have any questions he is quick to respond and work with you for how you would like your ceremony to go. *Mrs. Mendez*

James Mulvihill preformed my ceremony and it was a dream come true! He was easy to work with and very personable. It was a struggle finding a officiant for my wedding, but then i finally found James. He wrote a beautiful and perfect ceremony. It was perfectly us. He was open to all my suggestions. I gave him 3 different things (blessings, vows, and hand-fastening ceremony) and he put it all together just right. He was so friendly and relaxed. It was a not stressful at all. Great Job, James!

Leo & Corey, July 23rd, 2016 Cass Lake Mn James Mulvihill performed our cerimony. We live in Florida so all the communication was done long distance and we never met James and Jean in person until the day of the wedding. We loved both of them from the start. They are so professional and yet down to earth. My Mom and others attending are still talking of how well they were both liked and the great job that was done! James wrote up the cerimony the way we wanted it. Short and to the point, for a small casual event with both our close families.I would recommend Two Become One Ceremonies for anyone looking for a professional team to officiant on your special day! Thanks again James & Jean for making our day special. Sincerely, Leo and Corey

We absolutely loved having James officiate for both our May 2020 wedding and our May 2021 vow renewal! Our plans changed last minute in 2020 and James was very understanding and accommodating. If we ever have a vow renewal again in the future, he will be the first person we contact.

Types of Ceremonies
These are different types of ceremonies you can include into your main ceremony!!
The Family Medallion ceremony is a way to include children in the wedding ceremony. This is a great way to build a bond between step-parents and step-children. The recognition of children offers an opportunity for your guests to bear witness not only to your vows as husband and wife but your family commitment as well.
Veil, Cord or Coins:
A Veil symbolizes the oneness of marriage. A Cord symbolizes the unbreakable bond of marriage. Coins symbolize the stewardship of earthly possessions.
Jumping the Broom:
Jumping the broom is a phrase and custom where the couple jumps over a broom. The tradition of Jumping the Broom symbolizes sweeping away the old and welcoming the new–a symbol of a new beginning.
The bride and groom drink from a single glass of wine. This symbolizes drinking from the cup of life and sharing all of its experiences together, both bitter and sweet.
Lighting a Unity Candle during your wedding ceremony is a special way to symbolize your two lives joining together as one.
A Sand Ceremony or Blending of the Sand is a unique way to symbolize two lives becoming one in a wedding ceremony. This is also a great way to incorporate children or family into the wedding.
Unity Canvas Painting:
A fun alternative to the traditional unity candle ceremony or sand ceremony, the Unity Canvas Painting Ceremony lets the couple celebrate their unity ceremony in an artistic way that truly represents themselves.
A Rose/Flower ceremony is a romantic way for the bride and groom to exchange their first gifts as husband and wife.
Love Letter and Wine Box:
A Love Letter and Wine Box ceremony will serve as a lasting reminder of the commitments made to one another. Heartfelt letters, encapsulating your thoughts and feelings are locked away in a wine box to be revealed several years into your marriage. Whiskey, Scotch or Tequila can easily be switched out for the
Ribbons, Butterflies and Bubbles:
Ribbons, Butterflies and Bubbles are a fun way of ending the wedding ceremony. This takes place just before the bride and groom recess down the aisle as husband and wife.
The Mother’s Rose Ceremony is a great way of honoring the Bride & Groom’s mothers or other family members during a wedding ceremony.
The Rose or Flower:
Allows the bride and groom a way for them to show gratitude for the love bestowed upon them.
