        Looks good to me, the only thing I think I'd change is to add a - between twenty and second (reads: twenty-second). I think adding the - is the "correct" way of writing it, but I don't think it'd throw people off if you didn't add it!

          Here's the example I found @ Wedding Invitation Wording

          Which words are capitalized?

          Capitalization can be very confusing when wording your wedding invitations. Words that are always capitalized should, of course, remain capitalized. As a general rule, the first word of the first line is capitalized, as is the first letter of the year, which should be on its own line. Numbers (other than the number part of the address or numbered streets with more than two numbers) and states are always spelled out. The rules may seem very silly and arbitrary, but there will always be someone who notices changes!

          Remember to include the names, date, time, and location.

          Mr. and Mrs. David Smith
          request the honour of your presence
          at the marriage of their daughter
          Catherine Mary
          Edward Steven Mackay
          son of Mr. and Mrs. Francis Mackay
          Saturday, the fourteenth of August
          Two thousand four
          at five o'clock in the evening

          Our Lady of Peace Church
          123 Happyland Avenue
          Disneyland, California

          And I agree with Courtney about the hyphenated twenty-second!
