Unfortunately, unlike most of the original states, Pennsylvania did not record marriages until 1885 (with the exception of 1854-1856). The only way to find a record of marriage in Pennsylvania before 1885 is generally through church records, newspaper notices and the few surviving justice of the peace dockets and bibles. Most marriage records and notices from 1849 usually only included the date, the name of the groom and bride, where they were from and the person who performed the marriage. Sometimes church records have more info depending on the personal preferences of the person recording the marriage.
