Morgan Gibson (married name: Morgan Gibson Kanner) was the Director of Digital Content at The Knot Worldwide, where she oversaw the digital editorial strategy for all wedding content. With more than a decade of editorial experience under her belt, Morgan is a wedding expert with a talent for service journalism, digital content creation, and a passion for delivering helpful, accurate and awesome content to users who need it most.

A resident of the Washington, DC area, Morgan is obsessed with all things bridal and weddings, the “perfect” chocolate chip cookie recipe, and strong women (including her 60-lb. goldendoodle, Judy).


Morgan has worked in the wedding industry for more than seven years, and has more than 10 years experience working in editorial and service journalism. Just a few weeks after graduating from the University of Maryland, Morgan moved to NYC and got her professional start at Every Day with Rachael Ray magazine as an editorial assistant and then assistant editor, managing columns like Supermarket Smarts and Pet Project. From there, Morgan joined People magazine as its Associate Food & Lifestyle Editor, writing daily (sometimes hourly!) news stories on everything from a celebrity’s wedding cake to Oreo’s latest flavor to hit the shelves.

After dipping her toe in bridal at People with celebrity wedding coverage, Morgan was hooked. She went on to become the Digital Editor at Brides in 2015, managing day-to-day editorial production, freelance contributions, celebrity content and more. 


Morgan received her Bachelor of Arts in Magazine Journalism, with minors in both women's and leadership studies, from the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland, College Park. 

In college, Morgan interned at more than eight publications, including Cosmopolitan, SELF, Glamour and Capitol File. She was also a member of the Delta Delta Delta sorority and the Order of Omega honor society.

Important Questions from The Knot

Best advice for to-be-weds?

After you share your first kiss during the ceremony, before walking back up the aisle together as a newly married couple, take a moment to pause together at the altar and look at all the friends, family and loved ones cheering you on in support. There’s no better feeling.

What’s your all-time favorite wedding song?

"Proud Mary," the Tina Turner cover, specifically. There’s nothing better than grooving to that build up on the dance floor!

Dream celebrity wedding guest?

Sam Smith, just so they could sing the most beautiful tear-inducing first dance song known to man. Plus, I’m sure they'd be a fun party guest, too!

Best wedding after party snack?

Cookies, no question. At my wedding, I served chocolate chip cookie sandwiches with buttercream frosting in the middle, and I think it might be my proudest moment.
