Your question piqued my curiosity! So I did some research and I am pretty sure now that this is a Kwanzan cherry, for two main reasons: Its flowers are double, and the leaves come out before the blossoms.
Here are some close-up "shots" of its flowers, that I took some years ago. Our tree is probably 30 feet tall, now, and so hardy! A real beauty!
In contrast, the Yoshino cherry tree is almost white.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pink and green is a natural color combo outside. We have a tree in our front yard that looks just like this - for about two weeks a year. For the next two weeks, it looks like we've had a pink snowstorm just in our yard.
Lily Gahagan added this to Thinking Spring: Blossoming Branches
If you're lucky enough to have your own cherry, peach or other blossoming tree, clip a few branches for indoor use as soon as the blossoms get fat or start to bloom.
Samantha Schoech added this to If This Bloom Were a Room
The real deal. A tree in full bloom needs no special backdrop.
Kelly Porter added this to Cherry Blossom Pink Romances Rooms

J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Texas Gardener: What to Do in June
Prune trees and shrubs. Lightly prune summer-flowering trees and shrubs, like oleander and crape myrtle, for shape. This is not the time to do a "hard" pruning to remove a lot of growth — your goal is to remove anything that is dead or diseased, plus growth that is at an odd angle or towering above the rest of the plant. Never "top" trees and shrubs by giving them a crew cut — this ruins the plant's form and ability to grow properly.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Travel Takeaways: Design Inspiration From Japan
Another lovely surprise was how the color pink is embraced in Japan. I guess it should be no surprise, since the cherry blossom is Japan’s unofficial national flower. In Japan pink has a masculine association. The cherry tree’s pink blossoms appear and then fall to the ground so fast each spring, they’re said to represent the young Japanese warriors of old who fell in battle in the prime of life. So pink is used — to my great delight and instruction — liberally and well.

June pruning: Distinguishing traits. A desert native, Texas mountain laurel possesses survival traits necessary to thrive in an arid climate while exuding characteristics of plants from much more temperate regions. Naturally spreading and shrubby, it can also be trained as a multistemmed upright tree. Dark green compound leaves cover its branches year-round, but its early spring blooms make Texas mountain laurel shine. Reminiscent of wisteria flowers, drooping clusters of violet-blue buds abound in midwinter. The flowers have been described as smelling like grape Kool-Aid or other artificial grape products. A relatively short bloom time leads to summer seed pods. If possible, remove the seed pods before they open in order to prevent the poisonous seeds from dropping.
