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!

Christa made everything so simple and easy on the big day. I never felt stressed about anything, and she was very informative and helpful as far as licensing and whatnot. I would highly recommend her to a friend!Sent on 06/28/2020

Perfect for the Occasion!
We were very happy with our decision to have Christa officiate our ceremony. Due to COVID we planned a last minute elopement in Lake Tahoe. Christa was very helpful with making recommendations and was also very accommodating as our plans were constantly evolving. She made herself available for whatever we were up for and we were so grateful to have her friendly and supportive nature on our day. An added bonus was that she was able to provide us with the marriage license & certificate, which saved us a trip to the county office! Christa was an essential piece of what ultimately turned out to be a perfect day.Sent on 10/13/2020

Best experience... everyone should elope w Christa!
Christa was amazing from start to finish... super responsive, helpful, and easy going. She made our elopement super special and unique, handled all the paperwork, and honestly was just really fun to hang out with! We'd definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a no fuss, professional, beautiful ceremony.Sent on 06/05/2020
