1. With great joy we announce that<br /> we were married on<br /> Saturday, June 4th, 2011<br /> in Austin, Texas

Our painfully small [guest list/budget/venue/whatever]<br /> meant there were many loved ones<br /> we were not able to invite.

We deeply missed having you there,<br /> but you were in our hearts.

We love you.<br /> We miss you.<br /> We hope to see you soon!

Love,<br /> Your Names


2. “x and y would like to share that they were married in an intimate ceremony at z”, “small wedding” or “in front of a small gathering

I know it used to be a thing of the past to send wedding announcement after the wedding, but I have never seen it done. In some ways it may come off as look at how pretty we look when we got married and didn’t invite you. Then peopole might feel obligated to send a gift even though they weren’t invited. If you are really set on doing this though I think your wording is ok.
