WE MAKE THE RENTAL PROCESS

the easiest task on your to-do list


At our core: we’re family. Manning the helm, is husband-and-wife duo, Cyndi & Darrin. Back in 2008 they sought to make the rental process easier. Having been in the events industry for quite some time, they noticed that the process was complicated and product collections were stagnate.

For over a decade, our team has worked together with you in mind. Making sure to arrive on time with our impeccable items in tow, responding to your questions faster than you can ask them – just to name a few.  Behind the scenes, we are consistently updating our inventory to include items that meet the trends of today, but also the trends of tomorrow.

Our daily mission is to provide you with superior event rentals that’ll bring your event to life, and customer service that honors your time & excitement. We understand how intense the event planning process can be plus, it’s not every day you’re having to rent furniture! Our professional team of event rental experts is here to lend a helping hand and guide you from inquiry to booking with intentional recommendations & helpful tips, so that you’re confident in your selections.

We’re known to crack jokes (at least we think we’re funny), celebrate fun-but-random holidays in our office, gush over event photos, and give american-idol-worthy performances while we work.

Cyndi S, Owner & President

Cyndi is Darrin’s wife and business partner. Together, they started OWPR in 2008! Cyndi & Darrin have two children, Zac and Alyssa, who have already left the nest, but are out & about pursuing their dreams.

Managing the daily office operations, overseeing payroll & HR, and other business-related activities keeps her busy. She is extremely passionate about her relationship with Christ and seeks to glorify Him through her business. When she’s not working or at an industry function, Cyndi is spending time with her gal-pals, werking out, traveling, and training her & Darrin’s golden retriever puppy.

Darrin S, Owner & Vice-President

Darrin is in charge of business development and sales. In addition, he is continuously looking for exciting and trendy products to expand OWPR’s inventory. When a unique configuration is presented, you can find Darrin on-site measuring and determining the optimal placement for a visually impacting effect. While Darrin can often be found behind the scenes as General Manager, he is passionate about the quality, the service, and the relationships that make OWPR the area’s leader for exceptional event rentals!

Alexis M, Marketing Manager

Always laughing, Alexis is constantly cracking jokes and keeping the office up-to-date with weird facts & random history. Funny enough- she graduated from the University of Central Florida with a B.A. in History and a B.S. in Anthropology. Graphic Design started out as a hobby of hers and blossomed into a passion which lead her to us! Here at OWPR, she handles our website, marketing strategy, catalog design, and more.  She also manages our Vintage Collection (finally putting that history degree to good use).

Outside of the office, you’ll catch her having a personal concert in her car/ apartment, taking copious photos of her fur babies Oliver & Piper, or watching a movie of some sort.

Heidi E, Marketing Assistant

Heidi grew up in an army-family that moved around a bunch so, she’s seen a few corners of the United States. After living in exotic Tampa, FL with her fam’ for a bit, Heidi attended the University of Central Florida Rosen College of Hospitality. She graduated in the summer of 2018 and joined our team in October of the same year! As our Marketing Assistant, Heidi oversees our social media accounts and helps to organize all things “OWPR marketing.” 

She makes our whole office laugh. No joke. She used to play rugby up until she injured her clavicle; Nowadays, you’ll find her getting swole in the gym. She plays the violin and can sing along to pretty much any genre of music. She’s obsessed with coffee. Again, no joke. 

Ron G, Operations Manager

Ron has been working in the events industry since 2005! Over the years, Ron has held positions such as driver, warehouse supervisor/manager, tent manager, and kitchen supervisor- so he knows his stuff. As our Operations Manager, he can be considered a “tetris master” as he configures the delivery schedule to best accommodate our clients’ events!

Ron’s ultimate goal is to go above and beyond for each client; no event is ever too big or too small. Ron’s favorite quote is ” A life without music is a mistake.” Thus, he spends his free time recording music, playing his guitar, and spending time with his best friend – his gorgeous wife!

Zach G, Asst. Operations Mgr.

Zach hails from Marion, Indiana and is a huge fan of all of its sports teams…Go Hoosiers! Before moving to Florida, he racked up some mileage by working in the events & tents industry. He’s obsessed with setting up tents and is always looking to learn more. He works closely with Ron and makes sure to have a “student-like mentality.”

In his free time, Zach likes dribbling a basketball, kicking around a soccer ball, going vroom vroom on his motorbike, heading out to the beach, and most of all, spending time with his beautiful daughter, Jeniveve!

Christine N, Office Manager

Christine comes to us with 5 years of event industry experience! She’s a graduate of the University of Central Florida, having earned a Bachelor’s degree in Event Management with double minors in Mass Communications and Hospitality. Her dream is to coordinate high-profile red carpet events. The Governor’s Ball is major #GOALS!

If you move forward with an order, there’s a 60% chance of her being the one who creates the contract. If you stop by our office, there’s a 100% chance of catching her greeting the UberEats driver bringing her the food she ordered. When she’s not working, Christine is spending time with her puppy, Gambit, who thinks he’s a cat. There’s also a 58% chance that while you’re reading this, she’s watching Lord of the Rings.

Aileen P, Office & Event Specialist

Aileen was born on St. Patrick’s Day and raised in the Bronx. She worked various administrative positions on Wall Street until she was 21, then went to her mother’s hometown in Puerto Rico for a 2-week vacation that turned into a 26-year stay. Aileen joined OWPR with over 25 years’ of events industry experience. For us, she drafts rental contracts/ invoices and is the go-to gal for Tent permits. Habla Espanol! 

In her free time, Aileen loves listening to music and going to see movies. She enjoys “TGIT” shows like Scandal & Grey’s Anatomy, but her biggest love of all is the TCM channel. To her, there’s nothing better than a classic movie with a glass of wine. (yeah, see?)

Lynsey P, Events Assistant

What’s an interesting fact about Lynsey? She can quote almost every episode of “Friends.” Could she BE any more obsessed? Nope. So, this is the one about Lynsey…

Lynsey has two older sisters whom she considers to be her best friends and LOVES (yes, all-caps were necessary) dogs! She’s been in the events industry for six years, working at Arthur’s Catering for the same amount of time. Previously, she worked as a paralegal for three years, so she’s one smart cookie.

Here at OWPR, she works alongside Brittney to bring clients a personalized experience that’s equal parts friendly and professional. You’ll find her typing away at her computer, putting together contracts and most likely enjoying a Greek Wrap from Hummus House (her other obsession).

Ginger E, Office Assistant

Ginger has never met a stranger, or so her dad says, because she’ll talk to anyone resulting in fast-friends. She certainly won us over from the get-go!

Ginger is a proud mama of two amazing children, and is a grandma to five grandchildren! She recently got married to her best friend & soulmate, but sometimes she forgets her new last name. Gotta’ love her. 😉

For OWPR, she assists with office operations including pick-up orders, customer service, and more. When she’s not with us at the office, you’ll find her at the beach or the gym. Ahh, what a life!
