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. Read less

Gena, Danielle & Christina were amazing for our wedding last week! Gena was extremely helpful through out the whole planning process, and even officiated our wedding. Christina was always looking out for us making sure we had everything we needed through out the whole day. They did the complete set up of all of our DIY projects, tables, chairs, and linens. They took every idea we had and made it come to life. I couldn't ask for anything more than a team who did everything to make our dreams come true.

Gena and the staff of Platinum Party Planning are an absolute pleasure to work with. We hired the team to work with us at the very beginning of the planning process and they were with us every step of the way! Anything I needed during the planning process, they handled. Gena was always an email or a phone call away! Gena always gave great advice and recommendations on vendors in the area. Also, she arranged appointments to meet with vendors and accompanied us. Gena helped us to stay on track with our budget throughout the entire process. On the day of the wedding, they took care of EVERYTHING behind the scenes. Our wedding day was everything we had dreamed it would be plus more. I give credit to this incredible team for their hard work and dedication in making this happen. Hiring Platinum Party Planning was the best money we spent and we cannot imagine our wedding day without them!!

Gena was recommended to us by the venue that hosted our reception. Honestly, I never thought about using a wedding planner, but we went ahead and signed with Gena. We couldn't have been happier. Gena and her team kept the entire wedding day on task. If there was an issue, we never heard about it so we were able to enjoy our day.

Gena and the entire Platinum Party Planning team are some of the best in the wedding planning business. I'd recommend them time and time again - Gena coordinated with over 30 vendors and made planning a "destination" wedding completely stress free and enjoyable for us. She listened to our vision and what we wanted, provided us with unique and creative ideas and brought our "Classic Beauty" style wedding to life - it was more beautiful and magical than we could have ever imagined. I could go on and on about how amazing Gena and the P3 team are but just know that their professional and attention to detail are unmatched!

Gena is amazing. She was right next to me the entire day of the wedding, even holding a coat around me in between pictures on the beach. My corset kept sticking out of the top of my dress and she was right there with scissors to help me cut it down after the ceremony so that I could be comfortable the rest of the night.

She is "strict" in that she is very good at making people (guests and vendors) follow a timeline. She has obviously handled many weddings because she even scheduled 5 minutes of private time for me and my new husband between the ceremony and reception.

I want to warn you that she sends A LOT of emails but they are all important. Gena spent much more time with us than just the day of so we ended up giving her a huge tip. We met with her several times and had quite a few phone calls and emails. I even called her after I found out my hair salon had closed down and she was able to recommend some places. I would venture to say that Gena worked harder than any other vendor at the wedding (maybe with the exception of photographer and videographer). She even gave us a wedding card which I thought was such a nice touch.

I can't say enough good things about Gena and her team at Platinum Party Planning. I got a late start in planning the wedding, and by the time I hired Gena we were only 3 and a half months out from the wedding day at a complicated venue. Gena not only reassured me every step of the way but took my vision and truly made it come true. She helped me stay on budget and was flexible in working to give me the most perfect day. On the day of the wedding I didn't have to worry about a single thing. Gena took care of the details with amazing attention! I have no idea if anything went wrong because Gena took care of it before I had a chance to stress it! She literally made my wedding go off without a hitch. All of our guests were impressed with our wedding and I credit that to Gena! Platinum Party planning was the best decision I made, and the best money spent on my wedding. I highly recommend Platinum Party Planning for their professionalism and amazing ability to transform your vision into reality.

Gena was on top of everything and couldn't have asked for more. We didn't make a trip to NC prior to the wedding and still did not have any worries about things getting done. Even dealing with Hurricane Sandy coming in the day of and having to move the reception indoors did not get Gena off her game. I would definitely recommend using Gena for your wedding planner.

Gena made my wedding experience so much more enjoyable and stress free than I could have imagined, especially planning my wedding from another state. We emailed & talked frequently and she was always available when I needed her answering every question I came up with. She was so pleasant to work with. The day of the wedding, the weather from Hurricaine Sandy put a kink in our original plan. Gena was already on top of everything letting me know when we had to call it indoor or outdoor and had everything in order if we chose to cancel the outdoor wedding (which we unfortunately had to do). I would have never been able to remain as calm and collected that day as I did if it weren't for Gena. I did not shed a tear. I knew & trusted she would handle it. She & Danielle even came to the door of the salon my bridesmaids were at to walk them with umbrellas to the car so the rain didn't destroy their beautiful hair. She was always a step ahead on top of everything. Gena & Danielle made my wedding more beautiful than I could have imagined. It was perfect, even despite the weather. Gena is so friendly, professional, and warm. You are her priority above all else. I would recommend her to anyone!!! You will be so happy you chose to work with her, trust me! I would hire her again in a heartbeat.
