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.

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!
