Pennsylvania did not require marriage licenses until 1885. Since 1885 marriages in Pennsylvania are recorded at the Register of Wills office in each county where the couple got the license (which wasn't always where they lived although it usually was).
The only way to find marriages before 1885 in Pennsylvania would be through church records and if you're lucky in old newspapers.
I suggest checking with the Northumberland County Historical Society to see if they can help you. You might also try the Sunbury Family History Center and depending on where in Northumberland County you are doing research there are several libraries and historical organizations that might be able to help.
