Announcement Wording

Hi everyone,

We will only be having 18 guests at our wedding in August.  It'll be parents, siblings and our 3 best friends and their spouses/families.  My FI's parents agreed to such a small wedding with the compromise that we'd send announcements out to the more distant family members that we aren't able to invite.  How should we word them?  I'd like to offer some sort of explanation so that they know that they weren't left out of a 150 person wedding, but I'm not sure how.  Should we just say "Il neige and FI were married in a private ceremony at this place on this day, blah blah blah," or is that wrong since it wasn't strictly private?  "Small ceremony," maybe?  I think I'm having issues with this because announcements in general seem a bit gift grabby to me.  Thanks!
