At The Rental Company, our mission is to make every event amazing.

Our staff strives to exceed your expectations.



Organized. Creative. Compassionate. Action-Oriented.

Hello, and welcome to the Rental Company page. I am so thankful that you are checking out our services to see if we are the right fit for your event. After I bought the Rental Company in 2004, I have made all efforts to ensure that this is a place with excellent customer service and customer appreciation — and I think that our clients would agree. Check out our testimonial page to hear from previous clients. It is extremely invigorating for me to keep up with current and budding trends, and the best part of my job is meeting with brides & grooms to create and dream up ideas.

I have three wonderful children, three dogs, and a cat. And I knit incessantly to clear my mind from the chaos. Other interests include pottery, stained glass, and gardening. Come by and you’ll probably see some of my most recent pieces around the shop.

As a native of West Michigan, I appreciate the natural resources here and am excited to be a part of a movement to keep our lake shore beautiful by facilitating eco-friendly events. If you have any questions about planning a green event, whether you include a few green options or make a completely eco-friendly wedding, I am here to help! Call the office at 616-396-7300 or email me at


Whether you’re planning a backyard party, wedding, birthday or another special event, Shelbey is here to make sure you have a great experience! From start to finish, she can help develop ideas and bring them to life. Her favorite part of the job is being able to set up your event through our White Glove Service. When Shelbey isn’t working on your event she is planning all the details of her own wedding! She is excited to be able to plan alongside all our couples. Shelbey is often overjoyed about the little things in life! She is crazy about planners, Target, coffee mugs, all aspects of weddings, and her pup, Zola.





Ready to greet you at the door and sit on your lap while you plan your event, Ella is our showroom mascot. She loves snacks and belly rubs!
