Exceptional! Goes above and beyond
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.Sent on 05/08/2019

Our experience with “Smith and Murphy” namely, Serina Murdy was amazing!
“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.Sent on 07/01/2019

Effecient, Flexible, Fabulous Wedding Coordinator!
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!Sent on 07/01/2019
We worked with Smith & Murphy on a really incredible wedding this year. The bride and groom had a very specific esthetic and Krystle translated their vision beautifully! It was one of my favorite weddings of the year because the couple was just having so much FUN! You could tell they didn't have care in the world because everything was being managed perfectly and they didn't have to worry about a thing.
Society Jazz, is pleased to give our endorsement for this event professional!
I highly endorse Krystle and Anna of Smith and Murphy here in Santa Barbara. They are life-long Santa Barbarans who worked their event and wedding wonders in the San Francisco area and we are now back to Santa Barbara. I will certainly share their contact information with my brides and grooms. Welcome home. Father Jerry
