Why are these fixtures hung so high?
Shouldn't the chandeliers be hung lower over the tables?
That is my preference...Any others agree?

We normally recommend hanging chandeliers at around 7' from the ground, but you can certainly get away with going a bit lower over a table. In most cases I wouldn't go lower than 6 ft though, they'll begin to feel like they're encroaching on the space you need for engagement.
