About

We're not your Grandma's Wedding Officiant.

Ever been to a wedding and found the ceremony to be boring or it just felt like the Officiant didn't know the couple? We created our company with one goal in mind; to ensure your Wedding Ceremony is fun, memorable and funny. It is YOUR big day after all. So let's make sure the ceremony reflects why you are!

Cloud 9 Favors is based in New York City. However, we serve most of New York State and New Jersey. We specialize in creating personalized, funny and memorable ceremonies that reflect the journey the couple has taken together. We meet with you several times before your ceremony. We will design your ceremony from start to finish and provide you with a minute by minute timeline of what will happen that day. We will also offer some suggestions on how you can make your ceremony unique. We have done everything from taking shots, selfies and even done the first dance with our couples. Like we said before, we aren't your grandmother's Wedding Officiant. We love our Grandmas by the way.

If you're eloping, we promise to make sure your ceremony is equally as funny. We will also meet with you before to ensure we capture what you want on your day.

Cloud 9 Favors is run by Jason and Romney who got married two years ago to one another. So we know exactly what you are doing through. We also know how to take the stress out of planning the perfect ceremony.
With his meteorological skills, Jason can even help you choose the best times for photos or whether your ceremony time should be adjusted for ideal sunshine. Whether your wedding is non-religious, a civil union, interfaith, or single-faith, we would be delighted and excited to guide you on your wedding day.
Owners Romney Smith and Jason Frazer have extensive experience in the journalism industry as TV reporters, and Jason is also a Meteorologist. With this personable and knowledgeable duo by your side, the heavens are sure to part for you on your special day.

A very special part of our very special day!

We appreciate you Jason! We can't say enough good things about our experience! Jason officiated our intimate wedding ceremony and also provided DJ services for our reception. We were happy to find someone to provide both services and had a great experience! Jason was diligent throughout our ceremony planning process and offered many creative ways to add unique touches to our day. Jason was attentive and respectful while officiating our ceremony, and of course, funny. All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the ceremony and the energy he brought to our reception. He was a great addition to our day and undoubtedly, played a very special part, in a very special day. Thanks Jason!!

Could Not Recommend More!

Jason was the Officiant and DJ for our wedding and he was absolutely wonderful! He spent a good amount of time getting to know us and our story so that he could personalize the ceremony to us. He was very responsive through the whole process and extremely nice to work with. The ceremony went of absolutely without a hitch and during the reception he actually managed to get a dance floor going when our families were absolutely not the dancing type.

Prices are reasonable considering the amount of work that went into making everything just so.

Absolutely would recommend him to anyone who needed either DJing or an officiant! He helped make a very stressful situation much less stressful.

He's worked for several stations including the CBS affiliates in Rochester, NY; Columbus, OH and Hartford, CT. He's also worked for NBC Boston.

Three years ago, Jason switched fields to become a Meteorologist. He's helped guide viewers through Severe Thunderstorms, Tornadoes, Hurricanes and Snowstorms. After spending two years in Savannah, GA at the Fox affiliate, he moved to Cleveland, OH to work for WKYC Channel 3 as a Meteorologist. After spending two years in Cleveland, OH, he moved to New York City where he is a Morning Meteorologist for Fox Weather, a streaming service from Fox News.
