San Antonio Weddings Staff - Erika Perez

Erika Perez

Communications Director

From El Paso, TX

Hi, my name is Erika, and I’m the communications director. After an epic run at being a high school educator, I went back to school myself to attain a master’s in communication. During that time, I worked at a public relations agency where I developed and perfected skills I possessed all along.

When I saw the job posting for San Antonio Weddings, during their digital transformation, I couldn’t resist the challenge. As communications director, I manage all facets of the Bridal Buzz Podcast. A podcast launched less than a year ago, which has already exceeded 10k+ downloads (& counting)!

I love the couples who entrust me and San Antonio Weddings with their inquiries, and I strive to connect them to the best vendors in the area.

Fun facts:

  • I run for fun.
  • My favorite dessert of all time is a classic chocolate chip cookie.
  • My ideal love is the one built around infinitive laughter.
San Antonio Weddings Staff - Kat Gualy

Kat Gualy

Content Manager

From Houston, TX

Hi there, I’m Kat Gualy and my favorite thing about working in the wedding industry is not only being able to help dream days come to life, but also the fact that I get to support incredible local businesses in doing so! Though I recently graduated in 2020 with a degree in Digital Media Management from St. Edwards University, I did not hesitate to gain as much real-world experience in the digital and social media marketing worlds while I was studying.

I have been a Content Developer for OnVinyl Media, Digital Marketing Intern at The Skyline Agency, Social Media Influencer for Do512, Teachers Assistant for the head of the Marketing/ Digital Media/ Entrepreneurship, Dr. Zahay-Blatz, and most recently was able to be in charge of the digital and social media marketing for DuSol CBD Sparkling Water.

Originally from Houston, and having spent 6 years in Austin, I’m ready to get nestled into the city of San Antonio and help couples from all over understand the value that lays within it for their wedding day. As the content manager of San Antonio Weddings my goal is to help couples find the perfect local vendors while also inspiring them with a curated feed of beautiful and locally driven wedding inspiration. 

Fun facts: 

  • I am a singer/ songwriter currently leading a Groove & Jazz band, Jade Vine, out of Austin, TX
  • I have two cats that are sisters, their names are Olive and Omega
  • I have only lived in San Antonio for a short period of time, but can’t wait to explore all the city has to offer!

San Antonio Weddings Staff - Ala Hasan

Ala Hasan

Content Creator

Hi, my name is Ala Hasan. I am a Communication Arts student at the University of the Incarnate Word enrolled in the Master’s Program with a concentration in media studies.

Driven by the desire to create, I find passion in any pursuit that allows my flow of expression to blossom. Being Palestinian-American, I find power and strength in the voice that I carry with me; thus, feeling my motivation to embark in a career within the media.

Working in the field of magazine editorial has always been my career of reach; however, with the rapidity of the digital age given the complexities of this time, the opportunity to be a part of the San Antonio Weddings team has been such a fun ride. With my idealistic dreams of working in the wedding industry being rooted in watching “Say Yes to the Dress” growing up, I never thought that I’d someday be able to indulge myself in the planning process of so many special days.

Working in the love industry is never a bad day, every time I step into the office, I am surrounded by so many smiles alongside our shared motive to excel in going beyond the standards of our clients. In doing so, I am responsible for keeping an eye out for local proposals, managing social media content, creating flyers to get our brides out to our events, and even working behind the scenes in recording our podcasts (yes, they make me cry). With the valuable strategies and opportunities that I have gained working with San Antonio Weddings thus far, I cannot wait to emerge within the industry by carrying these valuable assets with me in the future.

Jaclyn Nguyen

Content Creator

From Houston, TX

Hey y’all! My name is Jaclyn and I am a Content Creator for San Antonio Weddings as well as a senior at UTSA where I’ll be graduating this spring with my Bachelor’s degree in Marketing!

I was born and raised in Houston but later moved to San Antonio for college and have been exploring the city ever since! In my free time, I like to travel, take photos to try & live my best wannabe influencer life, and watch any kind of comedy TV show.

As a Content Creator for San Antonio Weddings, I assist in collecting content for our vendors, have the pleasure of reading y’alls submissions and writing blogs, as well as developing social media posts and graphics – which is where I really want to further my career! Having the opportunity to gain experience in an industry as fun and feminine like weddings is one of my favorite parts of my internship but my absolute favorite is hearing all of the love stories and getting to tour all of the beautiful venues that Texas has to offer!

Fun facts about me:

  • All of my birthdays growing up have been crawfish boils (my favorite food of all time!)
  • I am Mexican & Vietnamese, which is the best of both worlds in terms of food IMO!
  • I come from a REALLY big family on both sides – my mom has 10 siblings while my dad has 11!
