How do I achieve these golden/reddish Indian wedding effects using Lightroom 3?

I have been playing with various options, tried various tutorials.. but I never get the post processed image I am looking for.Tried using ligthroom presets, but the result is always a very artificially made up picture and an eyesore, with uneven highlights/contrasts and even uneven sharpness :( :( (I varied all sliders to make it look sober, but in vain).I like my pictures to resemble something like this (basically Indian wedding) anybody has an idea how to get these golden/reddish sheer yet very soothing picture.

...this effect is cause by removing the color in a measured LR, pull back the image saturation, (50%?) and increase the vibrance. You then may have to lower the saturation of individual colors. I used to make photographs like this and that was my technique...good luck!
