Missing the Holiday Feel

Hi everyone, I was trying to get that holiday feel to this picture like those that can be used in travel brochures. However, the feel is not there ... I don't think it is due to symmetry as it would look a little unnatural if the layout is symmetrical. Maybe the umbrella has to be straight? What do you think? Thanks for any feedback ...

It's the lighting and the composition.

In my humble opinion. Please ignore me if you dont find it usefull / agree to it.
-Sky's tad bit bright, missing some cold / warm tone
-Ermm placing the gazebo/umbrella in the middle is not a wrong thing, it's just that now it is over-powering everything else. Keeps dragging my attention back to it. If your intention is to get me focused on the gazebo/umbrella, you did a great job!

I think i've overcooked your photo by reducing too much shadow/increasing the brightness. Brought up blue & yellow. If this rendition doesn't fit your liking, just ignore it.

in orig pic, the subjects are tad bit in focus, subject is not symmetrical, some distractions like the boat and a chair on the leftmost part of the frame. no pp can fix this, shoot it clean and be deliberate on camera level. (what you want/what you don't want the viewers to see).
