Beam 12' wide, ceiling joists 19 foot long. I used 2 -1'5/8

Customer Question

Beam 12' wide, ceiling joists 19 foot long. I used 2 -1'5/8 lvl' so glued and lagged with 2-1\4' lags 7every 16 inches on 4x4 posts with joist hangers transferring wait all the way to footings .
The ceiling joists are not supporting roof or snow load or live load.
Is this a sufficient beam, or should I add another lvl or flitch plate? Moser Wyo
