thanks so much guys.
it's hard to tell from the pic, but the bottom of the chandelier is about 20ft from the ground. So you can imagine how difficult it was to get this thing hung. As per Lee's comments in the video, it actually took 30+ minutes to get this shot. Best part of it was when the GM of the hotel walked by and saw it, he said "that's going to be an amazing shot, but you realize that's a $5,000,000 chandelier" to which i replied "You realize I have a bride getting married i this dress in under 3 hours"

The dress itself is a one off Amsale Bridal I do believe, as that is who my client was working for at the time.
