Help with addressing an invitation for a doctor

Ok ladies, I need some invitation etiquette help!
My mom works for our family doctor and we will be inviting him to my wedding in February.  What is the proper way to address his invitation?
I was thinking
Mr. and Mrs. Dr. So and So but it looks a little awkward.  What are your thoughts?

    I got this on the internet:

    Question: How does etiquette dictate I address a wedding invitation to a doctor?
    Answer: Etiquette dictates that the spouse with the professional title is listed first. If the woman is a doctor, but her husband is not, write: Dr. Lucy Wallford and Mr. Christopher Wallford, or, if they have different last names, Dr. Lucy Jones and Mr. Christopher Wallford. If the husband is a doctor, the proper way to address it is: Dr. and Mrs. Christopher Wallford or Dr. Christopher Wallford and Mrs. Lucy Jones. If both are doctors, it should be addressed to The Doctors Wallford or Dr. Christopher Wallford and Dr. Lucy Jones.

    The inside envelope would read The Wallfords if they share a last name, and Christopher Wallford and Lucy Jones if they do not.
