About Us

  • 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.

  • "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 invoved 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 day so that you can 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 Murdy was such a pleasure to work with and 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 we 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!

  • Wow! My wedding was flawless and came together perfectly. From the very beginning of planning, up to the last minute of the night everything was smooth sailing and organized! Not one detail was overlooked or neglected. My dream wedding came true with the help of Krystle and her magnificent team.

  • This beautiful day at the Fess Parker Doubletree was beyond my wildest dreams, and Krystle was there for us with her professionalism and friendly manner! There is no way I can ever thank her enough!!!

  • Justin and I were planning our wedding from across the country and needed a planner that was not only super on top of things but really understood our vision. We wanted someone who had similar values, too, and who saw weddings as being about community and marriage. Smith and Murphy was a perfect fit.
    — Jasmine
  • I had an absolutely incredible experience with Smith and Murphy, and cannot recommend their services enough. Krystle and Anna were so warm and wonderful to work with at all phases of the process. From the start, they did an incredible job helping me articulate my vision by asking thoughtful questions and then turning my jumbled answers into stunning options for my day. I felt like I was in such good hands all the way through and, as a result, felt so stress free!

Selina Murdy

‘It is hard not to love weddings! Where else can you find one event that combines all the best displays of art, fashion, cuisine, and music? It is pure magic!

I acquired my Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Communication from University of California, Santa Barbara and have seen the impact of my degree pay off in event planning. I joined Smith & Murphy while still attending University and upon graduation made wedding planning my full time dream job.

I strive to find the most creative ways to make each and every couples’ wedding day as beautifully unique as they are. My attention to detail and driven mind allows me to organize a stress free day for every couple, because I believe that every bride should be able to relax and enjoy the process of planning their wedding. I love the ability to work in a position where I get to be part of creating a visually stunning event week after week.’
