It sounds like she is expecting you to cover your own travel costs and then shoot her wedding for free as well.  Not cool.  I would suggest letting her know that you can’t afford the trip, but that you would be willing to try to make it work if she would like to pay you as her photographer.  She would never expect a hired photographer to pay his own travel so why should she expect you to?

I would have a talk with the bride and groom as soon as possible. Explain the situation and see if you can do something else for them beforehand (host a party? big gift?). That way you can see what really is most important for them
