Peter Wolf cracked the code to Sarah Ross’s heart.

The software developer created a QR code that links to a very special website: One where Wolf asked his girlfriend Sarah Ross to marry him.

The two met at the Young Adult Group at St. Cecilia Church in Beaverton – they are both regular attendees. Wolf grew up in Northeast Portland and Hillsboro. Ross is originally from Washington and today works for a local policy research organization.  

On the couple’s 11-month anniversary in August, they strolled along the Southeast Esplanade, where Ross discovered a placard with a giant matrix barcode. Using an app on her smartphone, Ross scanned the code, which took her to this website: sarahrossisawesomesauce.com.

After Ross read the poem on the website Wolf created, he got down on one knee and gave her a yellow diamond engagement ring.

“It was perfect,” Ross said.

The two married Feb. 9 at Holy Rosary Church among family and friends, who all agree the proposal was adorable.

“He’s so creative,” Ross said. “I was just so happy to get to spend the life with that kind of amazing man.”
