Planit Event Boutique
Planit Event Boutique & Floral Studio, located in the Treasure Mountain Inn on Park City’s upper Main Street, is a one-stop solution to wedding, party or corporate event needs. Owner Terri Gentry’s 30 years in the hospitality business, and her association with luxury hotels like the Phoenician Scottsdale, Newport Beach’s Balboa Bay Club and the St. Regis hotel group plus a client list that includes Fortune 500 companies such as Hewlett-Packard, Nike and Eddie Bauer, and over 200 weddings across the U.S., have given her plenty of experience working with high end clients, couples and corporations to create customized, unforgettable events.
“Planit is not a cookie-cutter business,” says Gentry. “It’s not like we’re making candles or servicing cars; we’re developing friendships and building relationships.
Most of our business comes from word-of- mouth or referrals.” Every detail of an event is tailored to the individual customer, and their personalities come into play—maybe a couple met skiing, grew up in Park City or spent vacations here in town. “We also work really hard to be sensitive to budget constraints, to ‘make the pie work.’” Gentry recently added the floral studio to handle décor elements and the design needs of her clients, explaining that flower choices can also help her and her staff understand a couple’s style and food preferences. “When you host a wedding or other event, the theme and surroundings are a representation of who you are as a couple or a company.”
Destination PC, a meeting concierge service, is the third component of Gentry’s business. Due to the immense popularity of Park City for destination weddings and corporate retreats, Destination PC was formed to coordinate guests’ activities, provide ensuite floral or gift baskets, and collaborate with select partners to arrange venue selection, transportation, catering and other off-site needs for incoming groups. Planit also provides a range of full or partial services and support in out-of-town locations. Nike and other groups that have utilized Planit locally have also hired Gentry and her team to organize functions and food & beverage details in Santa Monica, West Palm Beach and other cities nationwide.
Gentry’s three companies were created to allow her clients the convenience of having everything under one roof, all on Main Street. Every facet of an event is intertwined, and the goal of Planit Event Boutique & Floral Studio is to provide a complete range of services. These include picking out “save the dates”, invitations, beauty and salon services for the bridal party, welcome baskets, transportation, décor and comprehensive event coordination. “It’s all about making it as convenient as possible for our guests,” Gentry says, “so they can eliminate the stress of planning and focus on enjoying their special day.”
From partial support to full-service event preparation, Planit plans to surpass their clients’ expectations for memorable meetings and events.
