Downers Grove couple wins first 'Pray for Rain' promotion on their wedding day

DOWNERS GROVE – It may have rained on their wedding day, but because of a local jeweler's promotion, Downers Grove couple Jonathan and Megan Barder will get a check for $3,000.

With the excess rain this season, Ancona Jewelers in Addison is offering a promotion where if it rains a half-inch at O’Hare Airport on a couple's wedding day, the couple will receive a refund check of up to $5,000 of their purchase.

The Barders were married June 21 and are the first couple awarded through the promotion. The jewelers made the couple the focus of a promotional poster, and will present them with an oversized check this month.
