You send an invitation to a “celebration of our marriage on XX date” So they know you already were married.  If they ask you about the ceremony before its done you tell them exactly what you told us. Its a small private ceremony and you will be holding a party later to celebrate with everyone. 

Its semantics, but to me its not a reception, because you are not “receiving” them after the ceremony. It is merely a party or celebration so therefore not all the same traditions would be appropriate. (first dance as husband and wife, bouquet toss, garter etc)
