  • Amazing job! Made my wedding day so easy! I hired Selina after having to cancel my first wedding that I planned due to the pandemic and decided to do a very intimate wedding in Santa Barbara. I instantly connected with Selina over the phone and felt she was an amazing fit for what we needed. The day of the wedding, everyone told me that I was the calmest bride they’ve seen (lol) but that’s is because Selina made my day so easy for me and my mom. We seriously spent the day relaxing with my bridesmaids, doing hair and make up and taking our time while Selina and her assistant pulled everything together. I am so grateful we hired her and would recommend her to anyone.

  • We had A LOT of changes to our wedding plans while working with Selina at Smith & Murphy, but she was very understanding and flexible with us, she remained calm, was always available to help, and we got through all the changes and ups and downs. We completely altered our plans only a few months out and I was incredibly stressed. We ended up having her help plan 2 events that were out of town for her (one was out of the country) and she remained helpful and available to figure out all the details from afar. We eloped in Italy and then had a reception in Seattle, WA a few weeks later. Selina really made sure everything was ready to go for both events and we didn't have to stress over anything for either day. Our reception in Seattle was seamless, Selina and her assistant did a fantastic job on the night of making sure everything went according to plan and they were very prepared and very professional. She really took care of the details and it allowed us to be stress-free and fully enjoy... Read more

  • Smith & Murphy did an incredible job planning and coordinating our 200 person Santa Barbara wedding. The team could not have been more organized, responsive and on top of things -- not to mention an absolute pleasure to work with! Krystle, one of the co-founders, was intimately involved in each and every step of the process. From beginning to end we felt comfortable and confident in their hands. If you're looking for a detail-oriented team who takes your event as seriously as you do, we highly recommend!!

  • Selina was amazing from start to finish. Her attention to detail and level of care made for a perfect wedding. The wedding timeline was so professional and detailed, all of my vendors commented on how much that was appreciated. Selina made sure everting was placed precisely where it belonged to make for such a special celebration. I highly recommend Selina!

  • Selina Murdy was such a pleasure to work with and a very professional, easy-going, flexible wedding coordinator. She asked all the right questions, took care of any details we could have imagined (and more!) and worked with us when wanted to make changes. She has a great personality and got along well with our family. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to hire a coordinator for their wedding to make their lives so much easier!

  • “Smith and Murphy” and the lead event person, Selina Murdy, made my daughter’s wedding the perfect event! Selina was organized, professional and yet, warm and lovely to everyone at the wedding and all who were involved in the day. She had every detail dialed in and gave us confidence that the day would flow seamlessly and it surely did! If you are looking for someone to make you feel relaxed and assured that everything will be taken care of for your wedding so that you can be truly be present and enjoy every moment of that special day, having Selina there will make that happen. She is good at what she does and on top of it all, just a really nice, quality person.

  • Selina, the head coordinator, knows this business. We didn't always know the correct questions to ask vendors and she really helps with all the correspondence. More than a coordinator, she has the creative gravitas to completely execute your vision and fill in the holes you may not be aware of. Our wedding would not have gone felt or looked anything like we envisioned without Selina. Through planning and day-of, this is a top-notch service.

  • Krystal and her team literally put together the wedding of my dreams. Being a bride from Houston, TX I hired a Santa Barbara local planner in hopes that they could connect me with some great local vendors. She did not disappoint!!! I barely know where to begin in terms of how amazing she is. I honestly was lost (in the wedding planing process) before her! By the time I found her we were already a little less than a year from the wedding date so from day ONE we hit the ground running! Krystal was so communicative, so cooperative, so patient, so helpful, so reassuring, I mean the list goes on and on. If I wasn't 100% sure or happy with the vendors she initially recommended, she would always have an option that was exactly what I was looking for. She knew my vision before even having to fully explain it - she is that good! In terms of day of (wedding was March 31, 2018- so this is still relatively fresh), everything ran extremely smoothly. I mean if there were any issues at all, I di... Read more

  • Krystle helped my husband and I create the wedding of our dreams! From the moment we requested a quote up until the days following our wedding, I always felt that Krystle and her team had every detail taken care of and managed. She was great at finding vendors within our budget without sacrificing quality. Smith and Murphy Events really outdid themselves to go above and beyond our expectations and this let us truly enjoy our wedding. I love how detail-oriented Krystle was in all of our emails and most importantly on our wedding day. There were so many questions and details I had not considered when planning and Krystle always came well-prepared making sure we knew exactly what we were getting out of all of our vendors and making sure that our vision was becoming a reality. I had multiple people ask why I was so stress-free and I owe that all to Krystle for making planning a wedding so easy and such a great experience. I would highly recommend Smith & Murphy Events again and again - ev... Read more

  • We recently got married in September at my parent's house and we couldn't have done it without Krystle, Smith and Murphy! We did the "Honey Bee" package which was just what we needed. Krystle was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process. We were new to the Santa Barbara area and planning the wedding from out of state. Her communication was fantastic, no matter what time it was or if it was on the weekend, she always responded to my emails within hours. This was very reassuring. She also did a great job with only providing us vendors who were in our budget and not pressuring us to go with a certain one. She is very reliable, experienced, and is truthful and honest. I really appreciated how organized and paitent she was with all of our questions. Day of the wedding was relaxing and the logistics all worked out just as planned. Her attitude day of was positive, organized, and enthusiastic which made the hours leading up to the ceremony stress free. Our wedding was everything we h... Read more

  • Krystle and her team are top notch! We were very specific about some of our details and she executed everything to perfection. Even more importantly, she gave us the peace of mind ahead of time that when the day came, they would knock it out of the park, and boy did they ever. Hire Smith and Murphy! Don't think twice about it.

  • There is a lot of "behind-the-scenes" work that happens when planning a wedding that most people either don't anticipate or can be stressful to handle on top of everything else. Krystle and her team members were worth every penny! We chose the Queen Bee package and Krystle handled all of the vendor recommendations and selections, contracts, pricing, timeline coordination, assistance with our wedding budget and anything else one could think of. She made the wedding day run very smoothly. We were able to enjoy our wedding, focus our time on one another and mingling with our family and guests. Aside from her professionalism, such as responding to emails and questions promptly, she has a very wonderful and friendly personality. She was easy to work with and always full of smiles. Her team were all great to interact and work with. For any couple considering hiring and working with a wedding coordinator, we highly recommend Krystle and her team. Their knowledge, professionalism, sincere and ... Read more

  • Krystle was such a huge blessing to work with. I only had 6 months to plan my wedding and she helped facilitate a majority of our vendors so seamlessly. Her professionalism and responsiveness were spot on. Because of our locations we mostly communicated via email so she was always quick to answer any questions I had. She even found our amazing photographer who we LOVED. Krystle and her team made our wedding day absolutely perfect. We would recommend working with her to any of our friends and family who are planning a wedding.
