The first summer we owned our home, I fell in love with peonies. We had purchased our home in the winter, so we didn't really know what would bloom when the summer rolled around and everything was a surprise. The peony bushes were my favorite of the surprises and continue to be my favorite flowers to cut and bring inside! We're no master landscapers, but for a few weeks in June we have an explosion of huge, frilly, bright peonies in deep pinks and creamy whites. It's no wonder that the weddings around that time here are often full of the same pretty and delicate blooms. This wedding paired soft pink and white varieties with a pale pink for a perfectly delicate pink summer palate. Enjoy!
