Young was paired off with the teen bridesmaid for the wedding and the two continued to spend time together during the reception, according to the New York Daily News.
Young offered the teen alcoholic drinks at the reception and flirted and touched her.
The pair then had sex at the hotel where the wedding party spent the night, according to The Tribune-Democrat.
In November, the teen was reportedly diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease and she told police she had not been sexually active with anyone outside of Young.
A relative of the 15-year-old, who also attended the wedding, approached Young in October and he allegedly admitted to the act.
