P3 is a premier planning service that specializes in platinum weddings and business events. However, we do work with smaller events that deal with detail and exquisite taste. Etiquette is where we shine. We know what you can "get away" with and what you cannot or should not do.
Our business has been on a referral basis only until June 2007 when we finally succumbed to the pressure from other wedding professionals to advertise and get a website. A very special thanks to Mary Basnight for really giving us the "pep talk" that we needed.
Gena Martin, President ... Planning events is in my blood. I started planning birthday parties for my dolls as a little girl sending out invitations and having tea and cookies. And then my friends started allowing me to plan their birthday parties. Before I knew it, I was planning dinner parties, New Year's parties and Halloween parties.
While the Assistant Director of Communications at Craven Community College, I helped plan several events including fund-raisers and graduation. I now help local organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce and Animal Lovers Assistance League plan fund-raisers.
My true passion is planning weddings! I give our weddings as much attention as I would my own! There are no second chances here and no room for error. I pride myself on maintaining a calm demeanor and will not forget that the most important thing is that you get married. Everything else is just stuff……FUN STUFF…. but just stuff.
Gena graduated from East Carolina University in 2001 with Bachelors’ Degree in Communications, Business and Sociology. Gena has been awarded Small Business of the Year by the Currituck Chamber of Commerce in 2007 and 2009; Ambassador of the Year 2007, 2008, 2009 and serves as a business advisor for the Animal Lovers Assistance League. She is active in the community with the Food Bank and Currituck Wild Goose Rotary where she is the immediate past-president and serves on the board. She has also received the Congressional Order of Merit by the National Republican Congressional Committee and 2008 Presidential Commission. She was an Honorary Chairman for the 2006 Business Advisory Council and was honored as Businesswoman of the Year in 2006.
Danielle Boginsky, Associate Assistant ... I have known Gena for four years where we met as professionals whose offices where in the same plaza. We soon realized that our attention to details and our drive for perfection made us two of the same. Event planning with Gena has enabled me to use and perfect my creative, professional and organizational skills. My mission is to polish the details of the event to ensure that the day is carried out with sophistication, class and style. Wedding planning, in particular, I absolutely love. I enjoy implementing the bride’s desires and making dreams come true.
Gena may be the master mind, but I am the executor.
