About Us

Memories, celebration, family and festivities is what the holiday season brings. We remember movies like Christmas Vacation and the Griswold’s light set up.

For 10 years, Colorado Christmas lights has been providing holiday installation services for both residential and commercial clients in the Boulder-Denver Metro area as well as the mountains of Colorado.  In 2008, owner Somerset McCarty was first introduced to Christmas lights following the loss of his older brother by one of their mutual friends.   Installing lights has allowed for Somerset to focus on the positive and joyful aspects of life, with his motto and his favorite part about the Christmas season being to "share the spirit of the season and the fruit of giving." 

From holiday design ideas to lighting installation, maintenance and timely removal, Boulder based Colorado Christmas Lights, is a one stop shop from beginning to end.  All materials installed are manufactured by our partnering factories.  Do you want a towering Christmas tree adorned in lights welcoming your guests and carolers? No problem! Do you want a captivating Christmas wonderland for your city or strip mall to entertain visitors and attract more foot traffic during the shopping season? No problem, CCL can assist with all of your holiday lighting needs.

Because of our attention to detail, professionalism and fair pricing, Colorado Christmas Lights has developed an amazing and loyal Christmas light client base.  To this day, we take great pride in delivering the highest quality service possible.  Four key areas ensure customer satisfaction: excellent service, experience, reliability and fair pricing.

We have a real vision to give back 50% of our total revenue to real needs in our local community as well as around the world.  In helping our local community, we can help our great state of Colorado, our nation and even the world.  We ask that you consider allowing us to light up your holiday season and join us in bringing good cheer this year and for years to come!

Meet the team!


Owner - Somerset McCarty

Somerset is a Boulder, Colorado native. He graduated from the University of Colorado with a bachelor’s degree in communication.

Somerset is known by his clients and close friends for being good with details and for his ability to listen and communicate well and effectively. His family genes include a surgeon (his brother) and a dentist (his dad), so he is no stranger to working meticulously with his hands. For Somerset, lighting is more than hanging lights, it is an art form that he has fine-tuned over 9 years and he is very passionate about it. It is important to Somerset to only hire people with like-minded enthusiasm and similar detail-oriented capabilities.

Another interesting fact about Somerset is that he has been named, a “Miracle Man" for having died and then come back to life. In August 2013, his heart stopped for nearly 15 minutes due to a sudden cardiac arrest while driving. With the help of a good Samaritan, he overcame death and is healthy today. Following this amazing experience, Somerset is extremely motivated to serving others and sharing life.


Estimator -

Sean Enright

Sean Enright is the newest member of CCL but is neither a stranger to Colorado or Somerset, as they went to both high school and the University of Colorado together, where Sean, focusing on marketing and management, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business. In fact, they were even roommates in that period as well as each other’s first business partner.

Since then, Sean has spent much of his adult life in Thailand, where he founded an interior design company and started a family. For some time though, the mountains of Colorado have been pulling on him so it wasn’t a tough sell when Somerset asked if he’d like to return for the winter season this year. His strengths lie in the principles he lives by as well as the relationships he creates. His motto is “treat everyone like family”. Additionally, he’s got a flair for design, something he hopes to bring to the table with CCL. Expect to see him around for years to come.
