It is Sunnah to perform Istikhaarah Salaah for every permissible matter. Therefore, perform Istikhaarah and try to convince your mother towards the direction your heart inclines after perform the Salaah of Istikhaarah. Since parents always think for the betterment of their children. As far as the ruling is concerned, you are permitted to marry without the permission of your mother particularly when all other family members agree to your decision.
