My Fiance is From Shreveport, but we both live in Houston. Some of my family including my mom was not happy with our decision but it makes more sense financially. Now I am starting to second guess my decision.
I think it sounds like you and your FI made a great decision in the location. It's (I'm assuming) cheaper and where your FI's family lives.
I could understand some guests being surprised it's not in Houston, since that is where the two of you currently live. But no one should be giving you all flack about the decision and I'm sorry that is happening, especially from your own mom. But you have nothing to apologize for. After all, the other option would be that your FI's family has to travel. So, guest-wise travel convenience, choosing Shreveport over Houston is a "wash" anyway.
If your mom is older and/or more traditional's Knottie name is KristenNumbers she may have just assumed the wedding would occur in the hometown of the bride. At first glance, and without any additional information, it does seem odd to not hold a wedding in the town in which the two of you currently reside. Perhaps your decision simply came as a surprise to her, and she will adjust her thinking with time.
