You did her a favor, whether she realizes it or not. If she can’t accept that you were doing what was best for her photos and her wedding, then let her stew in her juices! She’ll understand when she finds another amateur photographer and is dissatisfied with her pictures and realizes why you declined.

This is a “work” friend, not a real friend.  I would just let it go and not worry about it, as ohheavenlyday noted, you did her a favor whether she realizes it or not.

You did the right thing.  You understood your limitations and decided to decline gracefully. 

I would let it go and not worry about it.  If she’s just a work friend, you don’t need to worry about her opinions @ this point. 

And the wedding is over, hopefully she’ll come back to her senses.

I guess she never intended to invite you as a guest.  She wanted a free vendor.  You both did each other a favor.

You seriously did her a favor. She needs to hire a pro, and being a “friendor” is hard even when you’re being 100% legit hired by someone you know.

I wonder if she was mad because she thought you’d do the photos for free!

I am in the business of making things… for work and on my own. A lot of people expect things for free simply because they know me personally. So that’s where I’m coming from on that!
