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)http://www.facebook.com/album.php?id=383945828208&aid=310488does 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 way...in 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!
