I don't have a passport. I'm American. I need to fly to a wedding in Toronto in a month. What's the best way to do this?

So, because I'm silly I've never gotten a passport. The last time I went to canada was before 9/11, and it was extremely trivial, so I wasn't thinking about it when I agreed to go to my cousin's wedding. Anyway, what should I do?
I went to here
and found the formal requirements. It looks like I should theoretically be able to get across the border with my driver's license and birth certificate (which I have). Has anyone done it this way? Does this take longer than with a passport?
If that's not the way to go, how do I get a passport quickly? I've heard rumors about express passport places (they just sit in line at the passport office all day for you), but I don't really know how to find them. I live in San Jose, if anyone knows of local places. Any tips?
