Hello! My name is  Coach D also known as Delonna M. Stinson and I am the proud owner of  Glamorous Elegance, providing wedding planning and design services to the Metro Detroit Area and beyond. I am also the proud owner of Budget Bridal Expo, a bridal show catered to brides on a budget.  


I started planning small events part time in 2000 while working in corporate America. I decided that I wanted to combine my creativity and organizational skills with my love for weddings and special events, and so I started my own wedding planning and design business. I was laid off in 2009 from corporate America I haven't looked back since!

I love that I get to develop a personal relationship with each client - I feel that it is truly the key to making each event a unique and special affair to remember. I'm a very detail-oriented person. This helps me focus on even the smallest aspects (that sometimes turn out to be the most important) when I'm helping clients create the day of their dreams.


With my years of experience in this business, I've developed many strong relationships and friendships with so many wonderful vendors.  It has truly been my genuine joy to work side-by-side with my clients and their families during their most memorable occasions. All of my experience in this industry has allowed me the privilege and honor to train so many other wedding planners and designers in the industry. That is why the Ultimate Design Academy was birthed. Our goal is to equip you with the best and latest industry knowledge to help each student start their lucrative career. We are happy to share any and all experiences, resources and knowledge that can help take your business to the next level. Your business is worth the investment and so are you!
