Who is Illumiday

Ever hear the mantra go to school, get good grades, go to college, go to college, and get a job until you retire? Well, we had heard that growing up.  As young adults, we had legitimate careers on the path to a comfortable life. I was a computer scientist working on code to support the e-commerce of large companies and well my wife she was an analytical chemist working in Research Triangle Park. But early in our dating life both of us expressed disillusionment with these careers. As the relationship progressed; we got engaged and bought our first house. 

One day while working in the laboratory my wife overheard coworkers talking about hiring professionals to install Christmas lights. On her drive home from work that day she called and pitched the idea. Within a few minutes, we immediately loved the idea and it was a light bulb moment for us. I was already working on building a home inspection business and the two companies seemed to complement each other so the idea grew brighter and brighter in our minds.

We already had a passion for decorating the exterior of our home because it helped us meet our neighbors as they would pass by and strike up a conversation. We also loved hearing how the decor made people feel and the memories they had regarding spectacular displays they saw or helped their parents put up as kids. For us the holidays hold so many traditions and we love to be able to help people still fulfill some of those traditions. Maybe the really tall ladders hold a safety risk for you or life has gotten away from you and Christmas lights had to fall down that priority to do list even though you still love them. Did you know that like hiring movers, interior decorators, or party planners, you can hire people to take those fears and burdens away from you and you still get those memories?

So we put our passions into building this second business. After Christmas 2021 we attended a conference to learn more about the tools and techniques of holiday and light installation. We became certified, insured, and prepared!  The excitement to be able to help spread joy is like Christmas morning every day.  We would be honored to be a part of any celebration whether it is Christmas, 4th of July, Halloween, Diwali, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Birthday, Wedding, Promotion, or Graduation. If you’re excited about it, let us decorate it!
