With ten days, I'd suggest saving Laos for another trip as otherwise you'll be spending half the honeymoon in transit.
If you want to factor in some boat trips, you could do something like:
1) arrive HCM
4) bus to Can Tho in the Mekong Delta
5) do early morning boat trip to the floating markets around there. then midday bus to Chau Doc - overnight there.
6) Take the boat upriver to Phnom Penh, overnight.
7) Phnom Penh
8) Morning bus to Siem Reap, visit Angkor late afternoon
9) Angkor , then bus back to Phnom Penh.
10) Bus back to HCM (assuming you've a late flight out).
Hope that helps
