I have your solution for FUTURE shooting and to make the current one better ;)

Ok, their is a little you can do with this in LR.. You bring down the SAT of just red and orange.

Someone mentioned here already, but use a color gell on your flash when shooting in 3000K light.

If the room is VERY red, use a 2600-3000K Gel. your flash will now MATCH the ambient light. If its KINDA warm, use 3200-3500 slightly orange.

It is AMAZING how well it works. In churches I use their nature light with a little orange from my flash to fill in the eyes.

This is on of those things that separates the pros from the amateurs. Color gels on their lights

Just getting back into photography this year so this question is no doubt basic. I tend to get a red/orange hue with candid shots using flash in most venues. Some are more prominant than others. I know I can fix in LR4 etc but is there anything I can do to reduce prior to developing? 

Lens was Canon 24-70L ii
