Unknown Peony - Maybe Sarah Bernhardt???

I inherited this peony when we moved in. I have no idea what the name of it is. I was thinking it might be a Sarah Bernhardt, but it seems a little too pale of a pink to be her. Also, the day after it bloomed, it fell over from the sheer weight of the blooms. Granted, it had 2 blooms on one main stalk, but I've read that Sarah has pretty strong stalks. Thanks to the crazy weather, these are the only two blooms I got this year. Not the best pic, but the only one I have. Can anyone take a guess as to what peony it might be? Thanks.

It probably is Sarah Bernhardt, even though it is a little pale. With two double flowers fully open on one stem without support, I would expect it to fall over from its own weight especially if it rained. Al
