Good News: The Parachute, and black drapes are alive and well.
Bad News: You have to live, or want to get married near Springfield, TN to take advantage of the items. The venue we rented for our wedding reception owns the parachute, They rent out all their items ala carte style for internal use ONLY, so the drapes and parachute were two items we took advantage of on site.
How can you get your hands on a parachute? You might try and see if your local Armory or Air National Guard have "retired" cargo parachutes in storage you could rent or borrow. They hung the parachute with string on each line of the "chute" The venue was a gym before it was transformed into a wedding reception venue! The lights are just old gym lights nothing fancy, just camouflaged by the parachute.
