COVID 19 INFORMATION
Know how it spreads:
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks.
These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
Some recent studies have suggested that COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.

Wash your hands often
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others
You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick.
Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities.
Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.
Do NOT use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker.
Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.

Cover coughs and sneezes
If you are in a private setting and do not have on your cloth face covering, remember to always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
Throw used tissues in the trash.
Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Professional Wedding Ceremony Officiant
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!
You did an amazing job! Thank you so much.
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.
Two Become One Ceremonies made the big day go off without a hitch. I don't have enough kind words for James and Jean! The two went out of their way to make sure we were being heard as a couple. They were fun, thoughtful, kind and professional - everything you need on such an important day. They even made sure to include our pup, too! I've gotten countless compliments on the ceremony and how personable James made it. I highly recommend Two Become One Ceremonies, and if I could go back - I'd choose them time and time again.

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.
