Light hors d’oeuvres and dessert reception to follow, concluding at 1:00 p.m.

Or even drop the hors d’doeuvres part. You could definitely condense it. Do you have the design of your invitations yet? Will you have any inserts? That could guide you in how to structure it (two different lines vs one sentence).

At the bottom of the invite add a line: “light refreshments following the ceremony.”  So long as you scheduled your ceremony and reception during a “snack” time of the day and not a meal time, you should be all right.

My wedding was similar, only at a public park with picnic tables, so our invitation said “picnic lunch to follow the ceremony”.  That conveyed that it was casual and there was no dancing.  I feel like “reception” implies music and dancing.
