Panicking that my crown it too big!

I have 9 ft kitchen ceiling and 36" upper cabinets. After agonizing deliberation and collaboration with millwork person at local lumber company, I finally ordered 3-1/4" wide custom shaker style crown molding for my kitchen cabinets. I sent him pictures of my kitchen along with pictures and video of crown that I liked. My contractor picked up the 8-ft lengths the other day and commented on how "big" it was and now I'm paranoid. I found one reassuring comment from a pro on Houzz that "a 36" upper looks proportional with crown in the 3-4" range." I would really appreciate feedback from anyone - but especially in design pros out there. Thank you!
