Hi, I'm Rev. Christa Deane of Mountain High Weddings! I’ve lived on Tahoe’s beautiful West Shore since 1988 and have been blessed to be a licensed wedding officiant here since 1998. I know marriage is worth celebrating and I also know that the pre-celebration can be stressful — in that space is where I’ve found my calling. With my many years of experience, I ensure that the pre-celebration and ceremony is calm and stress-free, and I collaborate with you to create a ceremony reflective of your love and relationship.
My experience officiating a variety of weddings in diverse locations uniquely qualifies me to work with you to customize each ceremony — which, of course, can include your cherished pet(s)! I offer an array of ceremony options: Traditional, Non-Denominational, Hand-Fasting Ritual, Knot Ceremony, Unity Candle, Sand Ceremony, Toasts, Renewal of Vows, and more. I believe in inclusivity to all wedding types, including rehearsals, vow renewals, civil unions, non-religious, single religion, and interfaith ceremonies. California marriage licenses are also issued and included in my wedding packages — one less thing for you to worry about!
Whether you envision an intimate dinner party in the middle of a meadow, see yourselves getting married on skis at the top of a mountain, or picture being wed under a full moon on the lake, I will help you create a unique ceremony to declare your love and promises to your chosen partner -- in one of the most beautiful places in the world!

Reliable and easy to work with!
My husband and I recently got married at Resort at Squaw Creek in Lake Tahoe. Christa was our Officiant and we absolutely loved her. Our wedding was a destination wedding in the snow which created some difficulty hiring vendors, but not with Christa. Christa was happy to stand in the snow with us while we tied the knot. Christa's communication was amazing, and she went out of her way to meet us in person so we could get to know her better. She handled all the paperwork for our marriage licensing and certificate giving me one less thing to worry about. Christa also took the lead at our wedding rehearsal making sure our wedding party and family new exactly where they were supposed to be on the day of the wedding. If I had to do it all over again, I would have hired Christa to be our day of coordinator. She is extremely positive, has great energy, and the experience needed to instill confidence for the big day. Thank you Christa for being a part of our special day.Sent on 04/08/2019

My Husband and I wanted to have a small ceremony at our favorite spot. We are local to Tahoe and knew we wanted a small private day with family only. We met July 22nd and wanted to celebrate it by getting married. We wanted a short ceremony. We called Christa to book July 23rd as it was the best day that worked for Rya and I. However, our family couldnt make that day. They didnt know what our surprise was but we needed to change it. Christa was so helpful changing the date to the 21st. Our Ceremony was no more than 5 minutes and tailored to our goofy personalities. We like when things are quick and easy and Christa made everything perfect for our day. We will always highly recommend her. Thank you Christa!Sent on 08/06/2018
