Here is the marriage record from www.FamilySearch.org. Seems they married in Manhattan, New York, New York. Not unusual if George is working for the railroad as a conductor (got this from the 1880 census at Berlin, Rensselaer, New York:
George C. Burns, age 32, conductor, born New Hampshire as were his parents.
Annie, age 25, b. Mass.
Clarence, age 7 b. New York
George, age 5, b. Vermont
Annie, age 2, b. New York
William age 6/12, b. November in New York.

I did a census search for George C. seems in 1850 in Lowell, Middlesex, Mass he was living was his parents David Burns, 30 born New Hampshire and Hannah age 25 born New York and George age 3 born Mass.
In 1860 the family is living in Copake, Columbia, New York:
David Q. Burns, age 54, b. Vermont
Hannah B. age 42 born Vermont
George C., age 11 born Vermont
In 1870 they are in Ghent, Columbia, New York
David Burns, age 65, b. Vermont
Hannah C., age 50, born New York
George C. age 22, born New Hampshire.
By 1880 George C. is married to Annie and they are living in Berlin, Rensselaer, New York as stated above.
My guess would be that George's Litchfield birth place would be in New Hampshire.
