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!

Personable, professional and perfect
Reverend Christa made our elopement an incredibly seamless experience. From the first contact, through the logistics and paperwork to culmination of a perfect, romantic ceremony in the South Lake Tahoe mountains. Everything was perfect. We know that Rev Dean will be part of our very special memories and remain our friend for years to come. Her personal attention made us feel like the only couple on her agenda and the time taken and multitude photographs she took was such a welcome bonus. With Rev Dean taking care of everything, we just needed to turn up and ‘be present’ to enjoy our moment. We highly recommend Rev Dean and appreciate her flexibility with our schedules, from our first virtual meeting and correspondence to her recommendations for our adventures on our honeymoon. Thank you N & T from Texas.Sent on 07/25/2019

We love Christa!
We cannot say enough great things about Christa. She was extremely helpful and made our wedding day absolutely perfect. From helping us find a beautiful location to elope, writing a beautiful ceremony and taking awesome pictures, we could not have asked for more! She was prompt and worked around our schedule which was so nice. Although we did not meet Christa until the day of the wedding, she made us feel so at ease and it felt as if we had known her for a long time. We would most definitely recommend her to others, she made our day so incredibly special.Sent on 08/20/2019

Mountain High Wedding Service at Skylandia
Christa is deeply committed to her service. Her experience is valuable beyond measure, with grace and intelligence, she spent time understanding our desires for the service. Experience always amazes me, as Christa knew things we could never have thought of, and her idea for Skylandia was exceptional for us...it is beautiful beyond words and has a deep significance for my husband, as a local spot in Tahoe. Christa's ability to handle a wedding, is in my opinion, an absolute yes! Thank you for the time with us. Tara and SteveSent on 09/20/2019
