KIM SUNSHINE

After working in television from 1997-2004, including producing bridal coverage for Full Frontal Fashion, Kim turned her talents exclusively to the wedding world. As the knot’s Senior Video Producer, she has interviewed everyone from celebrity bakers and Diamond-District jewelers to wedding gown designers, bridal salon owners and planners and event designers. As Senior Fashion editor at the knot, she wrote extensively about wedding, bridesmaid and mother-of-the-bride dresses, men’s fashion, bridal beauty and real weddings. Kim has also freelanced as a writer for various jewelry sites and bridal newsletters. She lives in Manhattan with her husband and two kids. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, back in 2002 when Kim was shopping for her wedding gown, how did she know when she found “the one”? She twirled in it.

LINDSAY MANN

After a start with a consumer public relations agency, Lindsay discovered the world of bridal where she has been working as a Marketing and Public Relations Consultant for the last 18 years. Her clients have covered the spectrum of the luxury bridal industry, including photography, event planning, bridal styling, fashion design and retail. She has served as the Marketing and Public Relations Director for Mark Ingram Atelier since it’s opening in 2002. Between Mark Ingram and the design houses she has worked with, Lindsay has covered a whopping 36 New York bridal markets! After calling the West Village home, Lindsay and her family moved to the Jersey Shore where they live and beach (frequently) with their three children and two dogs. A sucker for pink, her favorite gowns to come down the runway each season are blush, just like the one she wore for her own wedding.

ANNE CHERTOFF

For over 15 years Anne has been writing and producing wedding planning and style content for wedding magazines, websites, blogs and brands. After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Technology, she was hired as an Editorial Assistant at Martha Stewart Weddings, and soon after named the magazine’s first Real Weddings Editor. She has held editorial positions at BRIDES and New York magazine’s Weddings issue, and has written for Huffington Post Weddings, Yahoo! Style, The New York Post’s Alexa insert and Glamour. In addition to editorial work, Anne creates bridal-themed content for Vera Wang and the Four Seasons. She has been quoted as a wedding expert in various media outlets including The New York Times, the TODAY Show, FOX News, WEtv, WCBS in New York, Newsday and the Daily News. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband and kids. Her favorite wedding detail? The cake because it’s both pretty and so yummy!
