Upon arrival, they were given flowers and a choice of champagne as well as nonalcoholic cocktails, while elegantly appointed hosts escorted them throughout the castle. In the emerald green gardens, contemporary dancers put on a highly applauded performance and a Roman era dressed soldier in full garb recited to the crowd, while a world-class pianist and violinist serenaded them with keys and strings in the dream-like setting. The maze-like fields held oversized placards depicting the journey Jordan's 40 plus years of ministry, from childhood to present, and photographers provided photo ops for the guests.
Inside the castle, in each room, guests got a feast from the dazzling array of food with a selection from every continent, with the final entrée and dessert served by five star chefs.
