I don’t see any problem at all. DH and I got married on family property where numerous other family members and friends got married. Based on everything I’ve heard, our wedding was very different from the other ones based on vendors we hired, our budget, and our decor. You’ll make yours unique too, because the reality is that YOU—with your preferences and style—have never hosted an event there before.
The only annoying thing I ran into was his grandma constantly pointing out what other couples did for their wedding, but that isn’t even that bad. So long as your cousin isn’t one of those my-way-is-best types, I don’t think you have anything to worry about.

Not weird at all. Your cousin is happy about it, so all good. Just think in small towns there is not many venues so many receptions or parties are held at the same place. LOL.

Nothing amiss with it, at all. Even if it had been only a year since your cousin’s wedding, still nothing wrong. Nothing weird either.
If me & DH were invited to a wedding, and it was being held somewhere we had already been, I would be glad, no new directions to look up, we already know how to get there and what to expect.
When I was a kid in the 1960’s, all my mom’s family’s events took place in the same banquet room in a well-known restaurant. So my cousin’s wedding was the same place as Grandmom & Granpop’s anniversary party, etc.

We’re getting married at the same venue as my fiance’s brother. His wedding will have been 2 years before us and there aren’t that many guests overlapping as their family is small. We looked at other places, but just couldn’t find anything that matched our budget and style. His brother and wife have been a huge, huge help and there isn’t any weirdness. It’s actually been great to use a lot of their lists and stuff. It’ll look completely different because we’re different people and no one has said a word to us about it. Now we just keep joking that their youngest brother should get married there too!
