It looks good.  Couple potential edits though:

1) is Al your father’s real name?  Typically full names would go on an invitation.  I’m wondering if you meant to, but it’s so natural to call him Al, you forgot, or if you purposely did it.

2) There’s some debate around this, but the final word seems to be that date these years should be written “two thousand eleven”, no “and”.  We never wrote “tonight we’ll party like it’s Nineteen and ninety nine”

3) I would write out “129 North Rock Island”

your name
Fiance name
son of his parents name

Generally, you want to get an idea of who is hosting the event–it’s not very clear with your invite, although your wording is used occasionally by couples who are paying for their own wedding, so if that’s the case and you like it, go for it!
