Chapels, Churches/Officials

Tradition coupled with innovation. Your wedding….your way! That’s what we are about at Chapel of the Pines.

Your wedding…your way….You deserve an officiant who will follow you anywhere to do your wedding, and show up with a great attitude and a moving ceremony tailored to fit who and what you are.

Chapel of the Pines has a long and great history of providing quality wedding officiant services all over the Lake Tahoe area, as well as in the Carson Valley and Reno areas.

Chapel of the Pines was born in 1975 by Revs. Gil and Gail Linsley, and in 2016 Rev. Karen Linsley took over the business after Gil and Gail retired. While Chapel of the Pines has always been about flexibility and accommodation, doing weddings on location and featuring several different ceremonies to choose from, Rev. Karen has taken it a step further by offering completely custom ceremonies at every wedding.

The tradition of a wedding is as old as human kind itself. Weddings have always had a place in our lives in one way or another. The tradition is what makes weddings still popular today. The innovation is because in today’s world, you get a choice. It no longer has to be about those old words and phrases that might mean nothing to you. Pick or create the phrases you like, choose or leave out the rituals (such as candle lighting), make it as simple or as elaborate as you wish. Rev. Karen will talk with you and then create your custom ceremony so you have your wedding…your way!
