Elesha Mathews, Store Manager



Elesha brings more than two decades of fashion and bridal experience to True Society–so she knows a thing or two about wedding dresses. In her free time, Elesha loves to travel, attend concerts and take her miniature schnauzer, Luna, to the park. As the Store Manager of True Society’s Lenexa store, Elesha is honored to be a part of each bride’s special moment finding a dress. She just loves seeing the look on their faces when they’ve found “the one.”

Lauren Allen, Bridal Stylist



A former celebrity stylist in NYC and LA, Lauren has found her passion working with brides in Kansas City. Lauren loves traveling anywhere and everywhere–and if she isn’t traveling, you can find her reading a book or FaceTiming with her beloved nephew. Her favorite part of being a bridal stylist is creating the amazing experience that leads up to when a bride sees herself for the first time in the dress of her dreams.

Nathalia Barr, Bridal Stylist



A true outdoor enthusiast, Nathalia loves playing tennis, golf and sand volleyball. She enjoys going to the dog park with her golden retriever, Nelli, and she never passes up an opportunity for karaoke–her go-to song is Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like a Woman.” Nathalia’s advice to brides is to remember that your dress should give you the same feelings that your partner does, so be sure to listen to your heart as well as your head.

Marley Brooks, Bridal Stylist



As a Bridal Stylist and 2nd grade teacher, Marley’s joy in life comes from helping others–especially our True Society brides! When she’s not in the classroom or helping brides find their dream dress, you can find Marley enjoying the outdoors and spending time with her Bernedoodle and tuxedo cat. Marley’s advice to brides is to not stress the small stuff. Enjoy your day, have fun and never stop smiling.

Monica Campagnuolo, Bridal Stylist



In a previous life, Monica was an Industrial Engineer–and now she’s following her passion for bridal and fashion at True Society. Born in Lima, Peru, Monica is bilingual and calls Kansas City home. She loves traveling, going out to eat and spending time with her family. Monica’s advice to brides is when you start looking at wedding gowns, be sure you’re mentally prepared to find THE dress.

Emily Kramer, Bridal Stylist



Emily loves finding new restaurants to try with her husband and can often be found cuddling with her dogs, Nutmeg and Saffron (lovingly called the Spice Girls)–or expanding her massive nail polish collection. Her advice to brides is to trust yourself. You’ll know when you’ve found the gown, so don’t second guess yourself!

Kayla Smith, Bridal Stylist



Kayla loves the outdoors–especially when celebrating her favorite holiday, the 4th of July, at the lake–and going on walks with her French bulldog, Honey. You can often find Kayla shopping, listening to podcasts and traveling to see her family in Iowa. Her advice to brides? Be sure to go into wedding dress shopping with an idea of what you want to feel like in the dress in addition to what you want to look like.

Jessica Thomas, Bridal Stylist



Born and raised in Lenexa, Jessica brings her love for all things Kansas City to True Society. Jessica and her husband are avid travelers, and she loves to find hidden gems in town (ask her about the best cappuccino in Kansas City!). Her advice to brides is to remember that in the end, even in the craziness of wedding planning, everything works out. As Jessica likes to say, it’s your day, your way!

Come for the dress

Stay for the celebration.
