About Us

At Northern Lights Holiday & Event Lighting our mission is simple: Work closely with every customer to create unique and stunning lighting displays for any holiday or event. We strive for the highest level of customer service and high quality professional work. We offer fair pricing and no matter the size of the budget we’ll work with you to design an amazing display for the holidays or your next big event. You won’t need to worry about a thing with our full-service lighting. Every display includes design, commercial grade LED materials, installation, maintenance, take down and storage services. We take care of everything so you can spend more time enjoying the season with family and friends.  

We are a local owner operated business based in Bellingham WA, proudly serving the communities of Whatcom and Skagit counties.

In the spring and summer months we offer a variety of roof, gutter and other exterior cleaning services. We spend a lot of time up on roofs in the area and know firsthand how dirty gutters and roofs get.      


Meet the Team 

Mike Elges is the founder and owner of Northern Lights Holiday & Event Lighting. In addition to running the business Mike works as a Mountain Guide, leading climbs of Mount Baker and other peaks in the Cascades and Rocky Mountains. He got his start in holiday and event lighting when the seasonal nature of Guiding left a hole in the yearly work schedule. He worked closely with the owner of another lighting company for several years learning the trade before moving to Washington and starting Northern Lights.  Mike now has over 5 years of experience and leads the business with a focus on customer service and creating stunning lighting displays.  

Zack McGill is our Residential Project Manager. He has been with us since the start and loves hanging lights almost as much as he loves climbing mountains. Zack also works a Guide when he's not busy brightening the holiday season. He once climbed to the summit of Mount Baker 6 times in a month. His attention to detail and devotion to customer service make him and excellent Technician. You'll find him right at home climbing on your roof while he hums his favorite Christmas songs.    

Matt Sellick is our Head Photographer and a Lead Technician. His roof climbing skills almost surpass his mountain climbing skills. Matt is another of our eclectic group of light hanging Mountain Guides. His favorite part of the holiday lighting season is seeing the smile of a happy customer when they see their new lights for the first time. He brings an artistic perspective to both the design of a display and creating beautiful photographs. Rain or shine (mostly rain around here) Matt will be out installing lights with a smile and an excitement to work with the customer to make sure their lights are exactly what they dreamed of.
