Commercial Christmas Light Professionals


It's normal to wonder how much work actually was involved in a project when you're witnessing it and who would you contract do it?  The simple answer to that question is Lighting By Veterans.  LBV completed over 180 clients homes and/or businesses last year and still projects room for growth during the 2014 / 2015 holiday season.  Let's walk through a commercial project that was completed last year.


The 20' Christmas Wreath that a local hospital ordered was a pretty in-depth challenge with a two week deadline to deliver.  The wreath needed to be constructed with garland and clear LED commercial grade mini lights.  Attached would be a bow that's wrapped with Red Velvet outlined with LED red commercial grade mini lights so you could see it from the highway.  The wreath itself could not weigh more that 1,000 pounds and would need complete padding to protect the building.

While the rush of 40 completed homes a day is going on, LBV contacted every Christmas Light Distributor in the United States to see who could deliver this wreath.  The answer was, NOBODY this year however one company could produce it for $10,000 by next year.  This of course would not include the bow which would cost an extra $2,500.  Lighting By Veterans began to make the plans and start the fabrication necessary to meet the deadline.  If we could pull this off, LBV would be the only company in the world that could deliver this while handling the breathtaking workload.

A 20' circle steel fabrication was complete which broke down into 4 manageable pieces.  The next step was to fabricate the bow in perfect proportion to the wreath.  Meanwhile LBV sent 2 employees to buy every piece of unlit garland that was available in our county and purchased enough red velvet material to cover the bow.  Then we completely padded the wreath frame and installed mounts for our aircraft cable hanging system.


Once the project was ready to be installed, LBV had their 40 ton crane hoist this wreath up 10 stories high.  It was mounted and plugged in so you could see this for miles and miles.  There's really only one company that you should trust with this seasons project, Lighting By Veterans.  Give us a call at 469-269-2838 (AVET) or check us out online at lightingbyveterans.com
