Are you only capitalizing certain things on purpose?

1. Make sure the “&” is between your names on its own line, not on the line with the bride’s name.

2. No “at” before the time

3. 5:30 is in the afternoon, not evening; I’d probably put half past five in the afternoon or just half past five (it’s obviously not at 5:30am after all)

4. the lines about the reception are awkward. I’d simply say “dinner and dancing to follow.” Without a time, that means immediately after.

5. If you are going for all lowercase instead of using title case or standard capitalization (and this seems to be the case judging by the lowercase “saturday” etc) then “June” should be lowercase as well. Be consistent.

Then maybe you should take a screen grab of the real thing so we can better judge. You can just black out your last names if you are concerned about privacy.

You would capitalize Saturday, June, the venue name, word components of the venue address, the city, the state. You would not capitalize the year or the time.

The other option is to use absolutely no capital letters at all.

invite you to share in the joy at their wedding

I would change this to either “Share in their joy” or “share the joy”.  Preference to the first option.
