This weekend I’m jetting off to Santa Barbara for a running wedding. Yes...a running wedding! So many awesome events are happening, but the best of all is what’s going down at the Santa Barbara Wine Country Half Marathon on Saturday...bride to be, Erica Kinser will be the first to race in the Oiselle redesigned Runaway Bride Dress!
Little did I know before I came to Oiselle, race day weddings have been around for years. Where the bride and groom to be wed stop mid race, exchange their vows and complete the race as husband and wife. And of course you need the right duds to pull that off! That's where Oiselle comes in. Hats off to our design team, I saw sneak peeks of the dress (and bridesmaid dresses) when Emiy stopped by HQ and they are stunning. Wicking fabric, detailed stitching, and all the bells and whistles you need for racing and “wedding.”
So what’s on tap for this weekend? Wine country racing, a wedding at mile 6, expo’ing with Santa Barbara Running Company (I can’t wait to meet you all!), wine tasting and a whole lot of snapping photos along the way.
