"Take a Vow on Sunrise" couple five years later

 Good Monday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*It's been five years since Mary Beth Leger and Cody Cole got married on Sunrise!  It was part of a "Take a Vow on Sunrise" contest where our viewers voted on everything from the bride's dress to the flowers and cake.  This morning, we will have the happy couple joining us for a live interview to talk about life after the televised wedding, including the addition of an adorable little boy to their family!

*Today is a crucial deadline for Americans looking to get or keep insurance through the healthcare marketplace.  People who want insurance starting January 1 must choose a plan by the end of the day.

*We have an update to a tragic story out of Beauregard Parish: impairment is suspected in a two vehicle head-on crash that killed three people Sunday night.  Hear from Louisiana State Police about the investigation into the accident that killed 28-year-old Kristi Poteet, 41-year-old Ricky Gill of Singer and a passenger in Poteet's car whose name has not been released.

*A hit and run involving a pedestrian is under investigation this morning.  Find where in happened in the LeBleu area and the description of the car.

*It's a warm and humid start to the early part of the day, but meteorologist Zack Fradella says a cold front is heading our way later today.  Find out how much cooler it will drop our temperatures and our chance for rain.

Make it a Sunrise day!
