Friendship and love, we
Together with our families
Invite you to share the
Beginning of our new life
Together as we become one

It sounds good! I think I would change where you have some of the line breaks though, if possible.
My preference would be:
Because you have shared in our lives
By your friendship and love, we
It would also bug me to have the word “together” twice in a few lines… can you reword so you don’t repeat yourself?

I think I would move over the “reception to follow” if you could. From this view, its a little close to the florish. I think the rest looks great. I can’t think of any other way to reword it, other than changing it, so you aren’t saying together more than once in a sentance. I’m wondering what it would look like if you added an extra line between “together with our families” and “invite you to share”.

Looks good but you still need to lose the “AND” in 2012 (it should read “TWO THOUSAND TWELVE”)
I’d probably make the “RECEPTION TO FOLLOW” flush right, in a smaller font and/or in italics or something

if you want to get all grammatically correct about it too, “Kristal King & Anthony Johnson” is an appositive describing the pronoun we; hence, they have to be enclosed in commas. but of course, there’s no need to be all formal and proper like that. just saying 🙂
i also mentioned it in another thread that, to each their own, but i’m not a fan of spelled-out dates and times. they are so hard to read. when i look at an invitation, i want to be able to easily pinpoint the date and time. “October 14, 2012 | 4:30 PM” works for me, but that’s just me.
