Mountain High Weddings

Wedding Officiant

A 30 year resident of Tahoe's beautiful West Shore, Christa Deane has been performing marriage ceremonies since 1998. She is deeply honored to bring couples together for the ultimate commitment of marriage. A licensed Notary Public in Placer County, she can issue California marriage licenses.



My path to becoming an officiant started after working in a flower shop for a few months and realizing there are A LOT of weddings in Tahoe — and for good reason! This truly is an incredible place to get married. I thought to myself, “What a wonderful job it would be to celebrate marriage.” I found out what it took to marry couples and I started in May of 1998. I was ordained by the Universal Life Church, which believes we are all one; no matter what religion you or I may be, we all live in this world together.

As a marriage officiant, I am excited to be a part of bringing people together. I believe marriage is the ultimate commitment between two people who share goals, ideas, values, and most importantly, love. I also believe the wedding ceremony is one special time when you get to declare your feelings, promises, and dreams to your chosen one, in front of your loved ones.

I know marriage is worth celebrating and I also know that the pre-celebration can be stressful — in that space is where I found my calling. With my many years of experience, I have brought hundreds of couples together, and with that experience, I’ve been able to accomplish keeping the ceremony calm and stress-free. Becoming a marriage officiant has blessed my life in so many ways. I’d be honored to marry you and your partner.


“Our ceremony was our favorite part of our wedding, and we give all the credit to Christa! The vows she wrote for our wedding were incredible, and connected perfectly with us as a couple. She did a wonderful job incorporating our ideas into our ceremony. She responded to our emails in a timely manner, and we truly enjoyed working with her. Thank you, Christa, for giving us the ceremony of our dreams!”

“Christa made this experience by far the most beautiful and stress-free day ever. She did everything for us; all we had to do is show up. She had great ideas and was very professional. She helped me surprise my wife and made our wedding a dream come true. Both my wife and I would recommend Christa if you want a stress-free wedding. Thank you, Christa.”
