The sounds of classical guitar, the perfect music for your wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, or brunch – solo acoustic guitar by George Sawyn. His instrument is the traditional classical guitar, gently amplified to cover a room with an elegant musical atmosphere, without interfering with conversation.
Sawyn’s musical repertoire covers a wide spectrum including many original works, diverse and yet familiar. He draws from the classical composers such as Bach, Vivaldi, and Dvorak; the “Standards” as sung by Frank Sinatra, Nat Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, and Tony Bennett; and popular songs of the 60s, 70s, and 80s by such stars as Nora Jones, The Beatles, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, and George Benson. In addition, special requests from you or your guests are welcome.
DesignWise Studios Fine Art Photography and Videography features the work of George Sawyn in a forthcoming full-length production on the wedding of Hongling and Kyle at Bjorklunden this summer. Here’s a short clip from the film that includes Sawyn’s “Night of the White Rainbow,” an original.
The performer is a 38-year veteran of the Chicago music scene, guitarist George Sawyn. Over the years, George has worked with many of Chicago’s finest musicians and bands, playing many styles of music including rock, disco, country, jazz, and classical, and has acquired a wealth of musical repertoire and experience. But, his specialty is the solo acoustic guitar …soft, gentle, unobtrusive.
Since relocating to Door County, Wisconsin in 2010, George has entertained thousands of Door County residents and vacationers at local venues such as The Sturgeon Bay Yacht Club, Thorpe House Inn in Fish Creek, Pasta Vino in Ellison Bay and Al Johnson’s in Sister Bay. He provides ceremony and dinner music for dozens of weddings and other private events each year.

The Boynton Chapel is a small wooden chapel built in a late 12th-century Norwegian stave church (stavkirke) style. Handcrafted by Winifred and Donald Boynton between 1939 and 1947 on the grounds of their summer residence, the chapel is modeled after the Garmo stave church at Maihaugen in Lillehammer, Norway. A popular site for weddings and a favorite stop among Door County tourists, the chapel contains 41 hand-painted frescoes and numerous exceptionally fine carved-wood furnishings.
The chapel is a seasonal building, so although it is available year-round, the temperature inside the building is the same as the temperature outside. The chapel accommodates 36 people sitting in pews. The lighting of candles or use of electric equipment (i.e. space heaters) is not allowed in the chapel. Battery operated candles and boom boxes are permitted.
Lawrence University’s fee for the use of the Björklunden chapel is $425. This fee is for use of the chapel only; there are no facilities for dressing, handling groups if it rains, or public restrooms. There is a two-hour time limit that must be strictly adhered to, as we often have multiple services on the same day.
