Let me start by saying, this is not the norm where I live. That being said, what a fantastic idea. I’d fathom a guess that the reason most people love to go to weddings is the party after the legal stuff is taken care of. Yes, granted there are some people that wax sentimental about the ceremony but honestly by keeping it intimate those who should be present are given an extra special moment to cherish.

I really like the wording you’ve come up with. It’s down-home and wholesome. I might work a little on the sentence regarding the preceding wedding…something to the tune of :

“With close family and a few special friends by there side, _____ & _____ will be wed in an intimate ceremony preceding the reception  

That way you’re addressing the “well why aren’t we invited” ceremony lovers who are on your list, but not necessarily close enough to be included. 

As I said…not much experience with this style of wedding.
